Work Still Moving Ahead On THE FLASH?
Wrath of the Titans screenwriter Dan Mazeau, who once wrote a draft of The Flash script for Warner Bros., has revealed that the studio are still working on bringing other DC superheroes to the big screen and Barry Allen is high on their list.
With The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel both on their way, comic book fans are still patiently waiting for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment to bring some of their other superheroes to the big screen now that the Harry Potter franchise has come to a close. Talking to blastr while promoting Wrath of the Titans, screenwriter Dan Mazeau (who once wrote a draft of The Flash for the studio) revealed the following. "I think Warner Bros. is finalizing their strategy of how they want to roll out their DC superheroes and obviously they've got Batman in an incredibly great place and Green Lantern, I think, performed okay. I think they probably would have liked it to have done better, but yeah, there is still a whole lot of excitement for the DC universe and I know The Flash is very high on the list."
"It's like anything though," he added. "It has to come together with the right cast. It has to come together with the right director and sort of the right moment and so they're trying to push the rock up the hill...hopefully there will be some news soon, but right now I can't really say anything else. As for his take on the movie, he confirmed that the Flash would have been Barry Allen but, "For fans of Wally [West], there were some things in that script that would make them happy also." So, it seems as if Mazeau has some sort of idea about the status of planned adaptation, but we are yet to hear anything official (Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim are said to be working on it). Is The Flash still on the top of your most wanted list of superhero adaptations? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.
