DC Comics Movie Update: Watchmen, Flash & Shazam!

by | June 15, 2006 | Comments

What with the Marvel Heroes always getting a lot of extra attention, the arrival of "Superman Returns" allows the other comics giant to get a little extra spotlight. Yesterday DC president Paul Levitz spilled a few beans regarding Joss Whedon‘s "Wonder Woman" adaptation, and now come several more beans regarding Batman, Watchmen, Flash, Shazam, and (yes) Aquaman.

From IGNFF: ""Warner’s is looking at Watchmen right now," Levitz comments. "They are looking for a director I believe at the moment."

"It is a creative property that is very, very specifically designed for the medium in which it is published. I think it’s a real challenge to break out and do it. I think they had a very interesting script and certainly [Paul Greengrass] is a great director, so I had some hope for the Paramount one, but I hope Warner will be able to put something great around it."

"There’s a long list under development and announced things that are being worked on include: Flash with David Goyer writing, Shazam and Pete Segal is directing that for New Line, we have another Batman coming of course, New Line is developing out of our newer properties [such as] Y the Last Man… Warner Brother’s has a draft of other ones [including] Under the Roof. A lot of stuff [is] going on."
