"Green Lantern Corps" movie update!

Basically Geoff is still working on his draft (working hard at it, 24/7!) and will turn it in by the end of next month.

Eh, what? We're really to believe he's been sitting there for years at his keyboard, waiting to hit "send" on draft 1?

Well, we know he wasn't writing Shazam.

Geoff Johns is Cancer to getting any projects off the ground before we die.

They "promoted" Geoff to write this script because they wanted rid of him and knew that the movie would never get made. All he's good for now is to write massive events that speculators and his dwindling ranks of fanboys will run out and buy but that just set up more events.

And even those events are getting diminishing returns.

When you announce a one-year event with much ballyhoo but take two years to write it, that tends to happen.

I imagine that fans of Bendis don't like Geoff now, which also doesn't help Geoff.

And now all that setting up of Doctor Manhattan... was just to merge him with Wally, for a one time thing that surely won't stick?

Trey Strain 02-21-2020 09:32 PM

They made a Kyle a god one time, and it didn't stick. Maybe they're trying it again and hoping for a different outcome.

I think there's a real conflict within DC's management about Wally. Whoever decided to flush the white adult Wally and replace him with the black juvenile Wally seems to have been fighting hard all this time to justify their terrible decision.

Wasn't that Dan DiDio's call?

Might have been Manapul's idea to get any iteration of Wally approved. Or was that already Venditti?
