At WonderCon, Geoff Johns hinted that a Justice League of America live-action feature film might be in development, responding that he “Can’t talk about it yet, but we’ll talk in San Diego.” Today Comic Book Resources posted their annual 20 question reader Q&A with Johns which prodded CCO of DC Comics about what other potential big screen adaptations of other DC comic book properties we might expect to see:
“I can’t get into the exact DC slate right now, but we’re all working heavily on what that is with Warner Bros. and there will be news forthcoming. But, you can bet there is going to be a lot more than there is right now.”
I’m assuming that the forthcoming news will probably be announced at San Diego Comic-Con International this Summer. Johns was also asked about the Green Lantern movie, about his experiences on set, and his early impressions of Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan. Answer after the jump.
The movie looks fantastic. I’m heading back down to New Orleans in a few weeks, but I just watched the Abin Sur/Hal Jordan dailies, and it’s amazing seeing that ring passed to Hal in live action. Abin Sur looks kick-ass. They did such a great job. They’ve got Grant [Major] as a production designer. He’s from “Lord of the Rings,” and the visuals on this film are nothing like you could imagine. It’s definitely a Green Lantern fan’s dream. For me, it’s kind of insane to see this stuff come to life. And Ryan Reynolds is a perfect Hal Jordan. He brings a lot of humor to it, but he also has the humanity that Hal has. And a little bit of the arrogance, so it’s a great match.
Johns strangely didn’t get asked about or address the recent news that Green Lantern’s suit would be completely CG. I’ve heard he’s seen some tests and is completely behidn the decision, but it would have been interesting to hear his thoughts directly.
