I have this graphic novel, CHIP KALDERON - SCIENTIST, SOLDIER, SORCERER, which also has a screenplay draft version. Although I do believe a lot in the potential of the character and story, it´s constantly concerned me that it deals with hard issues of science vs. faith, reason vs. supernatural and so on. If it were a small budget indie flick script, I´d just go for it, but I conceived it as this sci-fi-fantasy thing that can´t really be done the way I envisioned it without a large budget. Now, issues are not really new in blockbuster movies, there´re a lot of social and political comments in Nolan´s Dark Knight Trilogy, even the new Captain America one, but then again these are properties with a built-in fanbase that knows and enjoys those undertones in the source material, plus religion always seems like a particularly delicate topic to handle. Now, my story doesn´t necessarily take an atheist - or theist, for that matter, approach -, if it has a message it´s that faith and reason are not necessarily incompatible. I wonder, do I stick to my guns, or do I try to make the approach less direct, like I make up a sci-fi spiritual belief like The Force so it doesn´t feel like a direct comment on Christianity, for instance?
