We all know that one of the more popular things to do in comic book movies (namely Marvel) is for superhero characters to do crossovers and make cameo appearances in other movies. For example: we saw Robert Downey Jr. appear briefly in The Incredible Hulk as Tony Stark. Also, Samuel L. Jackson appeared at the end of Iron Man as Nick Fury before going on to sign a 9-movie deal, which will see him showing up in a bunch of flicks as Fury. And with all of these Marvel movies heading toward one juggernaut The Avengers movie, it can only be expected that other crossovers will be taking place.
With all of these crafty Marvel cameos, it would only be natural for the other big comic book company that’s making movies, DC Comics, to consider doing this as well.
A while back, Green Lantern co-writer Marc Guggenheim discussed the possibility that there may just be a cameo involved for a one Clark Kent. Recently, MTV Splashpage followed up on that possibility and asked Guggenheim where that idea stood.
Here is what Guggenheim had to say:
Honestly, it changes on a daily basis. Whatever information I gave you today would be obsolete in a week, and maybe come back again in two weeks. And even if it wasnâ€™t in flux at the script stage, it would still be constantly in flux because you can film it, put it in the original cut, and eventually it could end up on the editing room floor.
I will say, all the Easter Eggs and the cameos that I put in, I couldnâ€™t even begin to predict at this point which ones will stay and which ones will go. Iâ€™ll be as interested as anyone else to see what we end up keeping and losing by the time the picture is actually lockedâ€¦ and thatâ€™s pretty far away from now.
It appears that some dancing is taking place with the topic at the moment with no real definitive answer given. This of course means that the possibility of an actual Superman cameo does indeed exist, they’re just not sure if they’re going to use it yet — and even if they do, it may even end up cut out (and into our DVD special features).
Time for you, our faithful comic book fanatics to speak up. Do you like the idea of a Superman cameo in Green Lantern, and if so, how would like to see the Man of Steel spend his short time on-screen?
