Geoff Johns will co-write/produce Flash movie, if made

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that WB hired 3 comics writers, quietly at that, to help develop some of their planned adaptations of DC productions - Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison and Marv Wolfman. Of those 3, only the latter may be any good. I'm not impresssed by Morrison, and with the way Johns has been handling the Flash recently, I sure can't get excited to hear that he'll have anything to do with development of the movie versions. Why, indeed, are people like Johns the ones they're turning to for assistance? Even if he doesn't write or edit the screenplay using the same approach as he's using in the comics, that'll just confirm the problems comic books face today, that they're self-masturbating without making any convincing attempt to please the wider public that's not big on comics.

Johns - and Morrison - are simply not what movie adaptations of DC comics need.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
