The idea of a detective Batman film written by Aaron Sorkin makes me hot.
Since the other thread ended I will post what I said there about big names like Sorkin getting involved in comics.
I don't know how he would fit in with Marvel. The MCU is pretty much set with past movies and they won't reboot and erase all that. We don't know what phase 4 has in store though, possible they bring Sorkin in and let him have a say.
I think him working with DC is likely. If JL bombs or is poorly received they may have to blow it up. Sorkin would have to be brought in to remake the Universe.
With comics I just don't know how many top award winning writers want to stay long term. Comic book movies are great but sometimes these top writers and directors want to do something one time and be done. They don't want to do long running franchises. See how long Cameron has been working on Avatar, that is crazy long.
I think they would be fine for one offs but don't see long term franchises.
Wow, Aaron Sorkin writing a Batman film? That sounds sexy.
Then again, I said the same thing about Chris Terrio...
Does Sorkin have anything great of his own? I mean, I'm only familiar with his adapted screenplays.
He'd probably make some cool daily planet banter
we got the WB cinemacon panel coming up in just under an hour, wonder what we'll get this year.
Yes. Yes, he does.
Not the least of which is The West Wing, which he created and wrote for. He also wrote the play and screenplay of A Few Good Men.
The one comicbook that Sorkin should consider writing is Ex-Machina by Brian K Vaughn, it's made for him!
From cinemacon a bunch of exclusive footage/concept art of JL/Wonder Woman/Aquaman got show to the audience. No real big news though
Joblo said the concept art of Black Manta looks a lot like the comics.
My body is ready.
His suit is so cool it's hard to mess up
Even io9 which usually rides DCEU deservingly so, said what was shown so far hits the right notes from what they saw.
I can only imagine if they turn this around. It'd be like your screwed up kid, finally bringing home good grades.
Obviously, in the end we'll have to wait 20 months for all 3 to properly judge. But honestly, I couldn't care less about Aquaman at present.
Seems as though Jordan Peele is wanted for the Akira movie at WB. Jeff Sneider speculates he could also be offered the Flash.
Peele already stated he's not interested in comic book movies, he wants to keep telling stories with sociopolitical themes. Considering that's precisely the reason Famuyiwa was booted off THE FLASH, Peele's not a good fit anyway.
Akira's an interesting one though. There are definitely heavy themes he could play with there.
I'm still confused as to why an Akira movie is even moderately necessary.
I just want a Flash director short list or something soon.
The only person fit to direct Flash for me is whoever tf directed Kingsman.
That was Mathew Vaughn, who's actually rumored for MOS 2.
Peele would probably gravitate more towards Akira I'm sure. Much more room for creative liberty there, even with its die hard fan base.
But I'd love if he took on the challenge of trying to actually take the flash job without leaving over creative differences.
