The site also speculated on which direction the studio could take the property. Here's an excerpt from the story below.

The original 1940s Mighty Mouse comic was designed as a a satire of the then-popular Superman, a kind of subversive postmodern creation before entertainment (and most of the world) was familiar with subversive postmodern creations. Producers could still go that way -- especially in an era when big Marvel and DC superheroes are themselves getting subversive treatments -- though part of the reason to do a movie like Mighty Mouse in the first place is its broad, family-oriented appeal.
