DC Finally Gets the (motion) Picture!

Postby Ult_Sm86 » Wed Apr 01, 2009 2:58 pm

So it took DC a long time, but they're finally on their ball.
But is it too late?

I've been carousing the SHH.com boards and discovered that DC just put together and flung out their (hack-job) line up of movies, but they're all very pushed back.

The soonest will be Jonah Hex in 2010. I'm sorry, but they can't expect money off a character no one knows/cares about.

That's why the got Batman & Superman... in 2011 :LOL The projects are in rough draft still (Batman isn't even on paper yet supposedly) and they're supposedly calling all of this a "timetable" which of course means it's not set in stone yet. Subject to change. Nolan is working on Batman and says he and his brother are working up a storm.

Then we got Flash in 2012, which is being written but no say on who. It looks like Roy Thomas is attached to both that and the movie about Green Arrow.

Green Arrow is interesting because (as I have noted before) it won't do well. But for a movie that's un-marketable, it's impressive what they're doing for it. Being written by Kevin Smith & Neal Adams, the story is going to involve Black Canary, of course, and is supposedly "going to be filled with everything that makes Green Arrow awesome, minus the crap that makes him not so awesome."

What that means, I don't know.

...you shouldn't insult Green Arrow, or I might cut your poodle :shifty

Seriously now: I don't know what you got there, but the Green Arrow movie was never intended to include Black Canary, she's supposed to get an own movie at some point. Also, the script wasn't written by Kevin Smith and Neil Adams, it was the guy who wrote the first Batman movie (if memory serves right).

And for Jonah Hex: among DC fans he's actually quite well known and I think that a badass Western could be a good movie with a quite memorable character (apart from Oliver Queen [Green Arrow] to me he's the only other male hero of DC that has distinguished looks further than a mask or something like that, ie you could totally switch Batman for Superman if one wouldn't wear a mask).

That's like saying "Why create new comic characters when there is already Batman and Superman lol".

It's a movie, it will introduce the character to people who don't know about him, and if that movie is kickass people will know him and care about him.

It's always better to make something new then to just make another five Batman and Superman movies.

You know, I think the Flash is actually even worse as a super-hero than Superman. I mean, you have to come up with all kinds of crazy gimmicks to not have him beat the bad guys the very moment they want to execute their plans :shifty
