Green Lantern 2

Yesterday we mentioned how Warner Bros. does have plans for a Green Lantern 2, no matter it’s box office performace, critical or fan acclaim. But Green Lantern isn’t the only super hero Warner Bros. wants to see on the big screen, the long rumored Flash movie might be happening, eventually, maybe, well at least there could be a script.

[Film Group President Jeff] Robinov said the studio has “a solid script” for the Scarlet Speedster. The executive also remains interested in bringing DC heroes together for a “Justice League” movie.

Not just any script, but a solid script. Whoop-de-freakin’-do. I won’t believe it till I hear from the folks working on said script.

The above excerpt comes from Hero Complex, where they spoke with Robinov primarilly about the future of Green Lantern, but he also gave a little insight into the future of their other properties. Like the even longer rumored Justice League movie. Will it happen? Do we want it happen? Will DC continue to fail where Marvel has succeeded again and again in creating an accessible and engaging movie-verse?

I like to hope a Justice League movie could work, but DC and Warner Bros. will have to start planning and hinting at a team up flick real soon. Honestly, it might be a better move to not include Supes and Bats since their individual film franchises are already profitable, successful and well established. Christopher Nolan is about to complete his trilogy and I don’t think Batman would benefit from being rebooted in another film franchise so soon. Zack Snyder is embarking on Man of Steel and as far as I know he has no plan of connecting this incarnation of Superman into any other Warner Bros./DC films.

But you know what, I think a Justice League film could work fine without those two. DC has a whole menagerie of great characters just waiting to be realized on film. Think of all the different super heroes that served in the JLA or JSA, any combination of them could make for a great super hero team movie. Plus, with out Superman and Batman, Wonder Woman could totally be the leader! Oh, who am I kidding, I know they’d put Ryan Reynolds in charge.

Who do you think would make a great team for a possible Justice League movie? Or should Warner Bros. just walk away from the idea and let The Avengers do their thing?

Super Hero Round Up? All the little Superhero movie bits that you should know about, but just don’t make a full post on their own.

After all the rewrites, costume changes and questionable character tweaking, NBC passed on the Wonder Woman dramatic action series pilot. Good decision for NBC, but too bad for Adrianne Palicki, who probably thought she’d landed the greatest gig ever.  You’d think that the problem lied solely with the very David E. Kelley-ness of the show, and not with her performance, right? But NBC chief Robert Greenblatt, says other wise. Greenblatt (haha, he has a funny last name) sat down with TV Guide recently and explained why the network skipped on Diana Prince and her lasso of truthh:

“They did a great pilot and worked really hard on it. And I have huge respect for David E. Kelley. But we looked at the schedule and our needs and where things were falling into place. And it just didn’t seem to fit.”

On what he thought about the costume and fan backlash:

“I was surprised there was such an uproar. But that didn’t have anything to do with whether the show got picked up. I love that it got so much attention. All that engagement from people whether it was positive or negative was good. And she did ultimately have these little hot pants…”

Son of a bitch! Fucker teases about “ little hot pants” we’ll never ever see. Dick!

I was really not excited about this show at all and the collective consensus from, I dunno… everyone, shared in the sentiment. Is there anyone that’s not happy with NBC’s decision. Besides Adrianne Palicki, that is.  What are your thoughts on GreenBlatt’s explanation?

I was really not excited about this show at all and the collective consensus from, I dunno… everyone, shared in the sentiment. Will Wonder Woman ever see the light of day?  Probably not, but some other network could still pick this up like Sy Fy ‘cause they have no standards.

HIT THE JUMP for Smallville Thank You Letter To Fans and news that Martin Campbell Will NOT Direct Green Lantern 2.
