That’s right you heard correctly, even though Green Lantern hasn’t even had a proper teaser trailer yet DC Entertainment has already hired Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, and Marc Guggenheim to write a treatment for the sequel.
Not only will the three writers be writing the sequel to Green Lantern, which isn’t set to release until next year, but that they will also be writing a treatment for a Flash movie.
Is this all just an answer to Disney/Marvel’s plans to release multiple lower tier characters along with their already planned larger releases or is it a result of Geoff John‘s new position in DC Entertainment? Whatever the reason, I definitely think it is a good thing to see that DC is finally taking their live-action movies seriously and are releasing more than one Batman movie every year or two.
Well what does this mean for the fans? Will we see both movies in 2012? While that is still yet to be seen the deal does go on to say that all three of the writers would then go on to write a screenplay for one of the treatments. So while that does not necessarily mean we will be getting either of these movies anytime soon, it does show a vote of confidence by DC Entertainment to the point that they are willing to start future projects without seeing the results of the current project.
So with this move we have Green Lantern filming, both Batman and Superman films in the writing process, and the start of a possible Flash and second Green Lantern film. The exciting question is what will this lead to? Will we be seeing more characters getting their own movies? A possible return of the Justice League movie? A geek can definitely hope.
Personally, I can’t wait to see some footage or a trailer from Green Lantern so I can see what has DC Entertainment so pumped for the future. If it has pushed them to make all these announcements it has to be pretty good. It should be a good treat at San Diego Comic Con, which is where they will probably unveil a trailer at the very least.
