Andrew Stanton (wearing the blue lanyard in the Comic Con 2022 panel image which also features Chad Stahelski and Keanu Reeves) gave the most thorough description we have yet received regarding the plots of the once-planned sequels to “John Carter.” Indications about his approach to the sequels have been dropped in the past, specifically back in March during the wave of 10-year-anniversary articles, but not nearly with the detail of the synopses he shared during Collider’s “Directors on Directing” panel on July 22. His plot summaries are quite spoilery and should provide some satisfaction to “John Carter” fans who hoped to see Stanton’s trilogy brought to completion on the screen.
It would have been an exciting trilogy, with similar proportions of the visions of Burroughs and Stanton as seen in the first film. Thank you, Andrew, for your ongoing passion for the brilliance of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom! May it some day pay off in more realizations of ERB’s incomparable world onscreen for all of us to enjoy!
