At the beginning of the week, when word came out that a script for The Flash is meant to be delivered by the end of the year, the news came with a rumor. It suggested that Bradley Cooper was in the running (ahem) to play the title character. That seemed to be conjecture, perhaps based in part on the fact that Mr. Cooper was already rumored for another big role in Green Lantern, another DC Comics picture.
On the set of The Hangover 2, Bradley Cooper said of the rumor “I’ve never heard anything about it ever in my life.” Which wouldn’t be the first time he’d denied a casting rumor (The A-Team) which turned out to be true. But since there isn’t even a script at this point for The Flash, let’s hold off on the casting for a moment. Read More »

The Flash has looked like the most likely candidate as the next DC superhero film to come out of Warner Bros., but we haven’t heard much concrete news about the project in a few months.

This past summer, Warner Bros. hired on the screenwriters of The Green Lantern (Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim) to pen drafts for The Flash and a Green Lantern sequel. This says a lot about how satisfied the studio must be with their work, since Green Lantern hasn’t even hit theaters yet.
So where do these screenplays stand right now? One of the writers, Marc Guggenheim (who has also worked on many Marvel comics, in addition to The Flash), has weighed in on the situation, sharing some interesting details about additional sequels in the process. Read More »
The Martin Campbell-directed Green Lantern adaptation, which features Ryan Reynolds as the titular character, won’t hit theaters until June 17, 2011, but Warner Brothers is apparently so pleased with what they’ve seen so far, they’ve already hired Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, and Marc Guggenheim to get to work on Green Lantern 2. In addition, the three screenwriters have also been tasked with the script for a big-screen adaptation of The Flash.

It’s the news you’ve been waiting for! Well, OK, maybe not, because this is only very incremental news.

And if you’re a Green Lantern fan, you’ll have a new animated series to watch…in a few years. Read More »
