    Here it is.

    Terry Gilliam does a comic book film.
    It's not one of these superpowered gods, like Hawkman, but a suited up vigilante.

    Here we can except some surrealism and avantgarde, as well as a dystopian Star City.

    The Emerald Archer (1995)
    Directed by Terry Gilliam

    Maybe it can be seen as the director's "green" film, like Metallica have a black album, and Beatles a white.
    Gilliam goes green, hehe.

    What about the cast?

    Oliver Queen/Green Arrow: Sean Bean
    Laurel Lance/Black Canary: Elisabeth Sue
    Merlyn a.k.a. Dark Archer: Christopher Lambert
    Deadshot: Michael Biehn
    Roy Harper/Speedy: Edward Furlong

    with the rest of the Monty Python ensemble in tiny cameos, spread through the film.

    Sorry no pics!
    I've already posted every possible visuals for this film

    Jeff Bridges would be the perfect Ollie for Gilliam.

    Good Cast !

    Sean Bean could certainly make a good, driven, and dedicated, Oliver Queen.

    Thanks.
    It's not only that. It's a Gilliam production. The visuals will play the lead in the film. Bean won't really that, he's only a key player in the story.

    I would have liked to see Gilliam's take on Green Arrow. The surroundings, and his costume, and so on.
    What do you think the result would be? Like a feverish dream, or a "trip"?

    The director's various films Brazil, Time Bandits, Baron Munchausen, 12 Monkeys and others will all work as a inspiration. And their visuals are different from each other.
    If you feel like it, take a look at the pics I've posted from 12 Monkeys and Zero Theorem.

    Now you have posted more pics here too. The first one made me think you should be a set designer for big Hollywood films.
    And the second post gives the impression that you could design clothes as well.

    Why don't you apply for a job at a major Hollywood studio? :)

    And then we have the pic from the swiss alps, with the nicely colored vintage train. I've never been there but it's beautiful!!!
    I really look forward to be allowed to travel again. There's so many places I would love to visit.

    EDIT. Hall of Justice looks like a real building. Was it a factory or something?

    While I've actually only seen Time Bandits before, I guess I would wager it could have been a mixture of the fanciful view of time Bandits and the darker world of 12 Monkeys.

    For instance, I could totally see Gilliam going with a very faithful , Robin Hood looking Green Arrow , such as John Cleese in Time Bandits

    [​IMG]

    Yet have the world of Star City could like very much like the world of 12 Monkeys
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So , Green Arrow's bright costume is in sharp contrast to this dystopian , run down city, and Green Arrow could serve as an inspiration for such a dark world. I'm just speculating since, I've only ever seen Time Bandits .

    As for the Hall of Justice, I think one of them was used in the CW Crisis cross over and I think it's a real building in Canada.

    I think you are right.
    You should see some of Gilliam's other films and get more into his visuals. Not only the dystopian stuff but the surreal too :)

    The Hall, the real building, most have been inspiration for its design in the comic books. This is worth looking into. :)

    Soooooo many great pics. You should stop coming up with casts, only be focusing on the visuals :)

    I love 70s bell bottom pants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If it were men's fashion again, I would definately wear it.

    The Phantom's suit is awesome. It's perhaps one of the best hero tights ever, but it's campy beyound reason.
    But so are Captain America, Wonder Woman and Aquaman - and look how that turned out :) :)
    Next in line is Hawkman, in the upcoming Black Adam.
    After that, we're waiting for Phantom to hit the big screen. If it ever happens. WB are holding onto the rights but they don't want to develop any film adaption.

    Thanks! I probably will focus on posting images to the numerous previous posts of mine in the DC thread at least:cwink:.

    If I get inspired , I'll probably post a new cast for a new film, but for now, I'm enjoying filling out the visuals for these worlds and these casts I've already done .

    As far as The Phantom goes, I think he's awesome too. I liked alot of the pulp based hero films of the early 90s, but unfortunately, alot of them didn't go on to ongoing film franchises.

    JLA PULP

    Story: Set in the darkest days of World War 2, Cliff Secord aka, The Rocketeer has gone missing after discovering the Third Reich's devious new plan to invade the United States. The Allied powers suspect that the culprit is General Von Müller, the one time case officer and father figure, to Nazi spy and actor , Neville Sinclair. Howard Hughes and The FBI immediately dispatch their honorary special agent , Dick Tracy ,to recruit a team of like minded patriots to travel to New York and too find Secord and too find out what he discovered. Officially , the mission is off the books and top secret.

    Tracy is partnered with Kit Walker, aka The Phantom ,who represents the allied powers on this joint mission. Tracy travels as far west as California and Texas to recruit a descendant of Zorro, A retired silent film actor who played The Gray Ghost, Newspaper editor Britt Reid aka The Green Hornet, The Hornet's partner Kato, and Britt's grandfather ,who at one time ,was The Lone Ranger .

    The Phantom heads east to recruit two equally supernatural allies in fellow playboy Lamont Cranston, aka The Shadow, and The Spirit. The ten men meet up in New York as Von Mueller prepares an all out aerial strike on the heart of Manhattan with their stealth, technological advanced fleet of rocket ships , submarines, and airplanes. Now, the fate of the United States rests in the hands of 11 heroes who must stop Von Müller from his plan of global domination !

    Yeah it does. I wanted the Phantom zone to look like a kingdom all it's own, except its a horrid, smelly, baron , place one would never want to live in.

    Yeah, that's totally how I see it too. I wanted to try to find images that were similar to other interpretations of Apokalips , yet were different in other ways.

    I notice Darkseid's ships are bug-like, like Zod's. One of the pics even have something that appears to be a world generator.
    The bug design, isn't that a clear sign that he's true evil. Perhaps that's the reason he invades Earth. He wants to turn it into the same wasteland as his home planet. It's not about going after resources.
    He just wants to see the world burn.

    A couple of pics have tripods (War of the Worlds), especially the one from Smallville.

    What can Green Arrow really do here? :huh:

    That's how I see it in this sequel. Darkseid travels back in time to take out on overwhelm the younger, more vulnerable, the teen versions of Clark, Bruce, Diana, and the rest of the group, but he also wants to level earth .

    It's basically the Terminator franchise concept of destroying the savior in the past so you can excel in the future, though, in this case, Darkseid has decided to bring a whole future army to kill the yet to be JLA members and to decimate the planet ,as opposed to just sending one guy as he did with Steppenwolf. I imagine him basically unleashing everything in terms of his fleet and his creatures .

    It's a bitter revenge for being thwarted by the future JLA several times in his timeline, so ,I see it in his mind, as a long time coming type of revenge. Reverse Flash has a similar motivation in the CW Flash show, in that, he's been beaten so many times by the Future Flash, that he gets great satisfaction to defeat the younger and more inexperienced Flash.

    As for arrow, I guess it's a bit like the Hawkeye issue in the Avengers films, though ,even more so in this case ,since he's basically a Green Arrow in training, and I see him being like 21 or 22 at this point.

    I see young Bruce enlisting his help because he trusts him, and because The Flash has told him he's one of the future members of the Justice League .

    Plus, they'll need all the help they can get. I see him basically fighting Parademons on the ground level on the chaotic city streets as opposed to taking on one of one of Darkseid's massive ships are his larger beasts.

    It's gonna be an even greater challenge since in this story, the young heroes are each at different parts of the earth when the invasion happens, and they have to reconnect in the midst of this carnage.

    It's also compounded by the fact that while Barry was able to warn the group about Steppenwolf in time to stop him, Barry's now stuck in the early 1990s, and doesn't know that Darkseid will bring a full army to the early 90s.

    So, our young heroes, and the world are in real pickle, so to speak .
