What's next for DC Films and Warner?

Postby Round_World on Mon Jun 26, 2006 2:23 pm

So what is next for DC pictures? They've done Hellblazer, Supes, and Batman. What properties do they have left that would be interesting, hip, and hit that chord with the public enough for non-geeks to care? Any ideas out there?

I think it's Wonder Woman next year. And I guess Watchmen at some point.

Captain Marvel perhaps?

Hopefully more animated adaptations of out of continuity/elseworlds stories like the main page story about Timm and company's adaptation of Darwin Cooke's New Frontier (cough Kingdom Come cough).

Sorry, I have to correct you there - they DID NOT do Hellblazer, they did an amnesiac, inbred sheep shagging cousin of what the Hellblazer film should have been. :x :wink:
Hellblazer would make a great TV series however...

(meanwhile, back on topic...)

They could do a Justice League film to match X-Men. I'd love them to do Justice League Europe - did you read that series? Funny shit...

The Authority? How cool would that be??

Doom Patrol a la Grant Morrisson would be awesome, but I doubt that would ever be made.

Did anyone read Frank Millers RONIN? That's perfect film material...

Aren't they supposed to be making a new Swamp Thing more in tune with the Alan Moore issues? That would be great...

As long as they don't make the superpowered, bad guy fighting Sandman they were threatening to do...jeezuz...

Captain Marvel's already in the works. Thread here.


Everybody wants to see a Preacher adaptation, so I won't rehash all of that here...

How about The Atom? Could be a mega-cool FX extravaganza with sci-fi overtones, if done right.

And DEFINITELY a lesbian Batwoman movie. There's your next tentpole series....

I think Goyer was told that after Wonder Woman, the next projects they want to do are Flash and Green Lantern. And since Goyer signed on for the Flash, it looks like that's the next one coming. Should be pretty nifty, he's getting physicists to consult on it and sounds like he really wants to make something special.

Kirk: What's the matter?

Scotty: Matter sir? Anti-matter?


To be a stickler, anti-matter has positive mass just like we do, only with an opposite charge. Dirac was the first to discover this and he was all 'OMG WTF wered my elektron go??'

It would be more like a tachyon, which means you'd have negative squared mass according to the tweaked equation:

Image

But another way of putting it is that you'd have 'imaginary mass', like an imaginary number on the number line.

Okay, sorry, I must have fell into a pile of 'know-it-all' today or something. I'm starting to annoy even myself. :oops:

EDIT:

Oops, forgot to mention:

Iconoclastica wrote:antimatter . . . fun stuff, though not nearly as much of a party as antigravity :wink:


The cool thing is that negative mass means negative space-time curvature, meaning you'd in effect have anti-gravity. ;)

Okay, I'm really done this time.

Some more DC characters whose time for the big screen has come:

The Atom. Thomas Jane would be perfect for this. Keep with the Silver Age story/origin and it's perfect.

Hawkman. I take alot of shit for liking this character, but I like him. There's more to him than just being a cop with wings. Give him a good director and writer and it'll bank.

Supergirl. I've said it before and I'll say it again. If ANY film needs a remake it's Supergirl. Here's hoping Superman Returns gets us a Babe of Steel flick down the road.

The Question. Truth be told, I never knew much of the character til I saw him on JLU. But I like how he was written and portrayed. Just keep Toombs' voice from the series and this could play as big as Batman.

Wild Dog. Basically the DC's version of the Punisher, he's a psycho who hunts bad guys while wearing a hockey mask. But I like the character.

Warlord. Conan + Dinosaurs= Kickass movie. Nuff said.

Batgirl. Barbara Gordon. Pre-Killing Joke. Make it a year one story like Batman Begins. When will Hollywood wake up and realize it's sitting on a gold mine? Sheesh.

Any more ideas? Maybe start a petition.......nahhh, they never read them anyway. Oh well....

I seriously thought Captain Comet was the most under-appreciated, potentially cool character in the DCU.

His name is laughable, but check out the man's spanking new threads:

I'm SO with you on this; I can't believe I didn't mention it before you did. Do a Plastic Man movie, but go easy on the zanier aspects. He's gotta have some sense of humor, but we've already seen Jim Carrey do The Mask, so he can sit this one out, knowwhumsayin'?

Some years back, the Wachowski brothers (who should have known better) came up with a Plastic Man script wherein Plas was some kind of environmentalist student who gains stretching powers. It REALLY sucks. You can read it here if you wanna be sickened.

Agree with the 'no Carrey' sentiment, and I also think it goes without saying that 'No Will Ferrell', 'No Keanu Reeves' and 'No Ryan Fucking Reynolds' also needs to be applied. It needs to be someone who can do the comedy second nature, but also be capable of making the funny kind of evil - like a Joker, but without the killing and the genocide and the total crazy. You know, sorta psychotic, but heroic in the end. Like Kirk.

Michael McDonald from MAD TV (not the Doobie Brothers) comes to mind as someone who is half-unknown to the major markets except as 'that Stuart guy' and I think could totally pull this off.

I remember trying to read that script a while back. I thought it was just my short attention span that made me give up twice about a quarter of the way through. Glad to see that it wasn't just me...

I didn't even get to him using his powers. Did they at least do something clever there? C'mon, this is the Wachowskis, at least they can do action right?

Maybe it wouldn't have been so bad had there been some kind of attention paid to characterization and dialog...

From SDCC:
Singer Still Planning Superman Sequel
Source: Edward Douglas July 21, 2006

At the Warner Bros. panel at Comic-Con in San Diego today, director Bryan Singer said that he was in talks with the studio about a sequel to Superman Returns. He hadn't concluded a deal to do it yet, which he said is always "iffy," but he has every intention to do a sequel for 2009, and said that while Superman Returns reintroduced the character for new people, the next one will let him get all "Wrath of Khan on it."


I like SR but please do something "ORIGINAL" with the sequel.
I want to see Superman fighting Bizarro, Gog or Lobo in a movie.
Zod is cool and I love Superman II, but I don't want to see a remake of that film.
I just want something new.
Maybe Singer will hire Alex Ford to write the sequel.

Are you serious?
Isn't Luthiac already on Smallville?
Don't you want to see a big ass crazy super powered fight between Superman and Darkseid?
If the rumors are true Zod is the villain for the sequel.
SUPERMAN RETURNS 2

Cinescape has an interesting rumor floating in from across the pond. Apparently, director Bryan Singer was at the UK premiere of the Routh-fueled blockbuster, and brought up his writing partners. One of them walked up to the mike and brought attention to what was written on the T-shirt he was wearing -- "Kneel before Zod." A "general" idea of what's planned for a sequel?

I honestly just feel that a huge CGI fest Darkseid would be silly. I know its weird to call something silly when the movie is about a dude in red and blue who can fly...but still...some creepy monster? That might have been cool in the 90s but it just feels lame to me.

Luthor...teamed up with a sophisticated artificial intelligence could make for some awesome and intelligent fun!

Darkseid is a much deeper character than Doomsday.
I get what your saying though.
I also grow tired of the overuse of CGI.
But man I just want the next Superman movie to be awesome.

Geoff Johns thinks that DC, like Marvel, will start their own production company/studio to create movies based on DC characters. Four minutes in. http://www.veoh.com/videos/v14598722RyNJ4QbH

From Newsarama:
Warner, DC meet to plan
July 11th, 2008
Author Kevin Melrose
Often criticized for its handling of its comic-book properties, Warner Bros. is holding high-level talks with DC Comics to develop a film strategy for its superheroes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. Pictures Group president Jeff Robinov and Warner Bros. Pictures president Kevin McCormick have met with DC executives and top creators over the past couple of weeks to hammer out a new direction for the big-screen adaptations:

Up until now, the comic properties had been undergoing a hodge-podge development process. With the recent success of Marvel Studios’ Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk and that company’s plan to develop its many characters linked strategically together, Warners has been forced to take a close second look at its sister company.


Warner Bros. is keeping quiet on the details of the meetings, but released a statement saying: “While we are not going to go into the specifics of the meetings, we’re constantly looking at how best to exploit the DC Comics characters and properties. DC is an incredibly valuable asset to Warner Bros. and plays an important role across the entire studio by providing development and franchise opportunities for all media, including films, television, home entertainment, animation, consumer products, video games and digital platforms.”

it will be better for everyone all the way around, including we fans, if WB and DC can get their ducks in a row. it is looking like they have the strongest single franchise going with Batman, considering the stellar reviews Dark Knight is getting. wouldn't it be cool if they could get their other DC properties to start performing along those lines?

This is why we'll never see a Wonder Woman movie. Exploiting women is wrong.
