    Now that scares me. Good thing Jack Black isn't going to be Green Lantern now.

    At least it looks like they have some decent writers in charge of the movie division.

    Wait... “Lobo,” based on the DC Comics anti-hero, has Guy Ritchie attached as a director; Joel Silver, Akiva Goldsman and Andrew Rona are producing for Silver Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures. '

    Guy Ritchie? Madonna's ex Guy Ritchie? This should be good... well, funny at least. Lobo as an unconvincing cock-er-ney geezer/gangster? Marvellous!

    Vinnie Jones as Lobo would be pretty cool.

    They should have gotten Brad Garret to play Lobo.
    Seriously.

    This is the sort of thing DC should have done years ago. Maybe now, more of DC's properties will be taken seriously as motion picture franchises.

    Not so long as they keep putting out films like "Superman Lifts Things and Stalks Lois...er, Returns". for every "The Dark Knight".

    They need to reboot the whole Superman movie franchise. I personally would like to see them tie movies together, have cameo of Christian Bale in the next DC hero movie as Bruce Wayne. Like they're doing for Marvel, yes I know it's copying them but oh well. Also tie in other references, like if they reboot Supes then have Tom Welling play a teenage version like like in Smallville.

    Hopefully they've learned their lesson from Superman Returns. Hire quality writers and directors who take DC's characters seriously and have someone in charge at DC Entertainment who will make good decisions and will prevent things like Jack Black as Green Lantern from happening.

    I also don't want to see them mimic the formula for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Those films worked because their subject was Batman. That approach won't work for characters like Superman, Green Lantern or Wonder Woman. Batman works best in gritty, real world scenarios. The others are science fiction.

    Warner have squandered the shit out of the ownership of the DC franchises and if this is what it takes to get something that can make money out of it, then more power to them.

    Unfortunately due to said squandering and ignorance over the years, if it doesn't have Superman or Batman on it it's quite likely to tank regardless.

    A Lobo movie? Really? Who gives a fuck about Lobo who isn't already buying comic books? 3 people who didn't think he was a bad idea on JLA?

    Marvel have, for years been making the best of their properties, for good or ill product wise, to make sure that people know more than Spider-Man and Captain America and it's paying off in spades and will likely continue to do so until the general public is tired of the Superhero Movie genre.

    So what, exactly, is fucking "cell-phone-radar", Batpods, Tumblers and grapple guns?

    Honestly, this really isn't anything new. Warner and DC have been working like this for years, they're just making it official now. It just sucks that they're really just now starting to put out quality material.

    "Copy Bat, Copy Bat. Feeling a little jealous, are we?" What's the rest of that quote from Joker at the end of Part 2 of "World's Finest" when Bats shows up on the dock? Well, that line applies to DC iself after first copying off the DTV's and now this. How original. :rolleyes2

    Well, it's still Batman. He has to have those types of things, but they're balanced out by the real world types of things he goes up against like the mob. You won't see Clayface or Man-Bat in Batman 3 because they don't fit in with what has come before. The only reason the Joker worked is because Heath Ledger portrayed him like James Cagney.

    Which is why the films only have so much potential, they're almost half a roster down of credible "real" villains. Unless they bring Liam Neeson back with the Lazarus pits thus at least opening up a supernatural element.

    Bleh, again, missed opportunities.
