Finally- An Original Super Hero Concept

It took long enough, but it seems like a company has finally come up with something original after the last 8 years or so of super-hero origin stories gone wild.

green arrowWe’ve had Daredevil, we’ve had Punisher, Spidey, the Xmen, we’ve even gotten a new Batman after just a 12 year hiatus (from reasonable films, at least).

I’m getting a little sick of these “this is how it happened” stories. When Batman 89 came out in…1989…it jumped right into the middle of his career, pre-Rogues gallery, and jumped into the important element that makes Batman so memorable: his villains.

Well it looks like Warner Bros, with the hand of David Goyer (Blade Trinity…among other delightful trainwrecks), will be looking at a different set of wheels, rather than reinventing them for a change.

On Saturday, fantasy/scifi site Wizard Entertainment posted a link about a film David Goyer wishes to get working on right away, starring that Archery-based alternate to the Dark Knight, The Green Arrow.

Here’s a small portion of the story:

    “Super Max” is Goyer’s take on supervillain incarceration in the DCU. Revolving around a wrongly convicted Green Arrow being whisked away to the super max prison for out-of-control heroes and villains (where he’s forced to face a number of inmates he put there), Goyer says the flick—which he’s developing with writer Justin Marx—isn’t just a Green Arrow film.”
