    You have a good vision for the team-up :)

    Two superheroes. Both have a powerful shield. Both wear a costume decorated with stars :)

    Haha, on Howard Stark there.
    Imagine him telling young Tony "Your mother is a demigodess!"
    It's best that he finds out who she is before he's an adult man, and a womanizer, and tries to make a move on her. LOL

    Adam West and George Reeves team up !!!!!!!!
    Sturges is a good director choice

    Will it be in color? Hope so!

    I've always been thinking about how strange it was that Donner cast another actor named Reeves as Superman

    What an old but scary wreckage of a man in that pic.

    I like your story and the rivalry with Vandal Savage.

    David Lean is probably the only director during the 60s who could have handled the bigger scope and at the same time do a serious film.
    Very good cast with Christopher Lee, Sophia Loren, Rex Harrison, Julie Andrews and James Coburn.

    The pic of the Egyptian city is the best. It strikes a chord in me :)

    Franklin J. Schaffner doing Green Lantern in the 60s :) :) :)

    Will the special effects be similar to those in Planet of the apes?

    Kirk Douglas as Alan Scott :up::up:

    Yul Brunner will be a very edgy Abin Sur :D

    What pic of Roddy did you use? It's gone now.
    Maybe you don't remember?

    I see the effects being bigger than those in Planet of the apes .
    Since there would be alot more light effects for the rings ,space ships, and planets.:D.

    It would be closer to 2001 in terms of fx's and scale, though not like it in terms of story .

    I imagine it being very much a space bound story with a few scenes on earth.

    Brynner would indeed be a pretty edgy and gruff Abin Sur.lol.:funny:.

    Unfortunately, I forgot which Roddy McDowell picture I used:(.

    You aim very high with this Green Lantern film, Frodo!
    You rock!!! :cool:

    In reality, a 1968 GL would have the same budget than the Apes or even less.

    Imagine if the film would have a naughty swingin London vibe as Barbarella (also 68) does? :funny:

    Thanks Airwings:word:.

    I could totally see a Wild Wild west era Robert Conrad working a swinging London vibe Green Lantern.:funny:

    Maybe a group like The Yardbirds do the soundtrack to it the way they did the soundtrack to Blow Up:D.

    Because I can't let things go, I was digging up info on the earlier drafts of the first Batman again; I didn't realize there was so much info available on the draft Tom Mankiewicz knocked up in the early 80s. I used to think that a mid-80s movie Batman was harder to imagine than Superman or WW (who were both established), but they really came pretty close to making it happen.

    And considering that the producers considered Bill Murray for the lead, Keaton doesn't seem quite as far-fetched even hot off of Mr. Mom.

    Yeah, they were pretty close . It just it took awhile for the project to get off the ground with the right director, script, and lead.
    The Tom Mankiewicz script has been floating around the internet awhile ago.
    I think this it .
