In the wake of the uber-massive-success of Marvel’s The Avengers, it wasn’t a huge surprise to hear that Warner Bros. had hired a writer to revive Justice League. They’re DC’s answer to the superhero team and a project has been in various stages of development for several years. The key to The Avengers, though, wasn’t just that it was a good movie. Much of its success was because it was more than a movie. The Avengers was an event with a four year, five film build up that started with Iron Man in 2008.

A report from Variety suggests the former. They’ve dug up that in addition to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, the Justice League news, and the Wonder Woman news, Warner Bros. has six other characters at various stages of development. And no, that does not include Green Lantern or Batman, both of which might get rebooted. Read what’s what after the jump. Read More »

The CW lost Smallville when the series ended with the finale of the show’s tenth season in May 2011. Since then, the network has been looking at other DC properties, like the Deadman series that is being spearheaded through development by Supernatural‘s Eric Kripke.
Now the CW is nearly ready to order a pilot for what could become its new DC franchise: Arrow, a show based on the long-running DC archer Green Arrow. The show would be an hourlong drama conceived and exec produced by Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, who were the primary writers among several people credited for the script for last summer’s Green Lantern.
