David Goyer’s oddly named Green Arrow-goes-to-prison movie, Supermax, appears to have a new title: Green Arrow. Yes, simply Green Arrow.
That’s according to Robert Sanchez of IESB.net, who speculates on Warner Bros.’ tent-pole movies for summer 2009.
Sanchez writes: “I am hearing with the success of Marvel’s Iron Man, considered a second-tier comic book character, certain execs over Warner Bros. believe it’s the right time to introduce the world to Oliver Queen, his bag of trick arrows and green spandex.”
He says that Green Arrow, and Billy Batson and the Legend of Shazam – directed by Peter Segal and written by John August — are both contenders for 2009. Green Arrow/Supermax is written by Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li).
Speaking of Segal, the article reports that the Get Smart director has been attached to a big-screen adaptation of Jonny Quest.
