Don't Expect That Orson Scott Card Superman Story Any Time Soon

Yesterday Chris Sprouse announced that he was no longer willing to draw the Superman story by Orson Scott Card appearing in the upcoming Superman Adventures. DC stated that they were pulling the strip until they could find a replacement artist.

I understand that this may never happen. That, basically, there is no “hurry” to find a replacement artist… and that the people involved with putting the comic together simply weren’t aware of Orson Scott Card’s activist membership. I mean, I was. I’m sure you were. But, it seems not everyone was.

They are now, obviously.

This is quite clearly a success for those raising the issue, trying to get Orson banned from DC Comics. But it seems like it was only the warm up. Because next on the slate is the Ender’s Game movie, with the likes of  Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley, based on the very positively reviewed novel by Card.

If they can succeed with Warner Bros over a comic, can they succeed with Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate over a movie?
