Last year, Man of Steel sorted out relations with Batman , and soon he will have to fight the racists. Deadline reports that Lotus Entertainment and Paperchase Films have decided to join forces to film the adaptation of Rick Bowers " Superman vs. the Ku Klux Klan "( Superman vs. the Ku Klux Klan ).|
The novel of the American writer is based on real events. Clark Kent debuted in comic books in 1938, but gained national fame in the 40s with the radio show Superman Adventures . Soon after the end of World War II, the ultra-right Ku Klux Klan society began to revive in the United States. Young activist Stetson Kennedy decided to infiltrate his ranks and find out the plans of the nationalists. After a while, he passed the collected information to the police, but the servants of the law did not want to fight the notorious organization.
Stetson decided to seek help from the writers of the Superman radio show. It turned out that they were looking for new antagonists to replace the Nazis who had lost their relevance. As a result, the 16-episode storyline " Clan of the Fire Cross " was born, in which an alien from Krypton challenged racists in white robes. The authors of the popular radio show so skillfully weaved the real secrets of the Ku Klux Klan into the narrative that soon the organization began to rapidly lose popularity, and then completely disintegrated into small groups.
Katherine Lindbergh ("Rain") will reportedly adapt the literary source.
