Marc Guggenheim Weighs In On Green Lantern, the Sequel, & The Flash Movie Treatment
Co-writer of the much anticipated Green Lantern, speaks with heavily with Newsarama sharing thoughts on the film, a few tidbits on a sequel, & The Flash. Check it Out!
Marc Guggenheim, the co-writer of Martin Campbell's upcoming Green Lantern adaption, speaks heavily with Vaneta Rogers of Newsarama on the film, which hits theaters June 17, 2011, and drops a few tidbits on the sequel & The Flash movie adaption.
Guggenheim says straight forward, "We've turned in the treatment for Flash, And we're talking about Green Lantern 2." "It would be a quality problem to have, to think about a third. But one step at a time,"
"I went down to New Orleans two months ago to see some of the Green Lantern filming, and I got to see a whole bunch of things in connection with the movie," Guggenheim said. "In all honesty, I was completely blown away. I don't think it dawned on me how huge this movie would be until I went down to New Orleans and really saw everything that I saw. It was incredibly eye-opening. I was really rendered speechless. There's just no way for me to put it to words, just how huge this movie is going to be."
"I think where that came out of was, when Greg Berlanti originally pitched the movie to Warner Bros., he pitched three movies. So there's always been, and he's said this publicly, that there's always been enough story for a trilogy. The scope of the character and the character's world requires that. But we're really just focusing on the treatment for Green Lantern 2."And I know that everyone involved in the production of the movie is just focusing on completing the first film," he added.
"I think it's very hard to talk about these characters in a closed-ended, sort of non-sequel way, especially characters like The Flash and Green Lantern, which have such rich, long histories. You can't help but talk about the characters and go, 'Oh, I really want to do the movie where we get to this moment, or that moment.' So you're always talking in terms of sequels, but no, nothing's planned. We haven't even written the script yet for The Flash. It's very much one step at a time for The Flash.
Guggenheim continues on the excitement of the Green Lantern sequel saying, "But it's terrific that people are talking along these lines. I think that talk really comes out of the great amount of faith and the movie and the optimistic feeling about it. So I think that's only a good thing.
On whether or not he'll cameo in Martin Campbell's adaption, "I actually can't confirm that. I wish I could. The truth is, those sort of decisions get made high above my pay grade."
But that doesn't mean he's against the idea, having even stated in the past that he'd love to see a Superman cameo in a Green Lantern movie. "I have all sorts of my own ideas and things I would like to see or like to do. And I'm certainly a voice in favor of cameos and Easter eggs and trying to tie the movies together," he said. "But you really have to talk to DC about that."
