DC ramps up its movie development. Here’s the list.

Posted on 20 July 2009 by Quaid

I love Marvel comics.  I especially love what they are trying to do movie-wise, developing a number of properties in parallel with the understanding that they’ll merge and cross over.  Now, it seems, DC has its answer to this approach.

DC_LOGOAnd what is that?  According to the trades, they will be ramping up their development of filmic properties, all under the supervision of three top DC writers–Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison and Mary Wolfman.  Together, this dream team will help usher along a long list of new properties.  Here’s the list of what we know to be well into the development phase:

The Losers
Jonah Hex
The Green Lantern

And some more projects that are just gearing up:

Teen Titans — Akiva Goldsman attached to write
The Flash — Charles Roven attached to produce with Dan Mazeau writing the script
Adam Strange — being produced by Leo DiCaprio’s “Appian Way”
Aquaman — Also being produced by Appian
Bizarro Superman — David Howard and Robert Gordon attached to write
Untitled Constantine Sequel
Untitled “Green Arrow” origin story
Super Maxprison-set “Green Arrow” movie
ShazamPete Segal attached to direct
Wonder Woman
SupermanAlways one in development
No new movement, but Nolan’s hit, The Dark Knight, will most certainly get a sequel

It does not, however, appear that DC has any current plans to do any crossover films or even attempt to set these movies in the same “universe” — as Marvel is doing.  Still, there should be at least a few titles on that list that will get any comic-to-movie fan salivating a little bit.

If I’ve left something out, please feel free to correct me below.
