Geoff Johns co-writing a Captain Marvel movie

Oh great. Not only is the overrated Johns co-scripting a Flash movie, he's also going to co-write the script for a movie based on Billy Batson!
Captain Marvel isn’t exactly on the forefront of the DCU but could work as a movie. The transition from the comic page to the silver screen has been eased by the news that the great Geoff Johns will be co-writing a script for the film. After Zak Penn’s successful turn as a movie scribe for The Incredible Hulk it looks like comic book companies are realizing that in house talent can make the jump from comics to movies and back again.
There may have been some comic scribes who made the jump successfully, but I can't say the same for movie scribes who've come the other direction. And though Johns wasn't exactly a screenwriter per se when he first worked as an assistant to Richard Donner over a decade ago on movies like Lethal Weapon, he did first begin his career in movies, and hasn't exactly proven himself capable of eschewing the influence he got from there.

I don't know if Shazam will ever make it to the big screen, but if it does, then I'd rather Johns not be part of it. I'd like to at least think this suggests he's going back to where he first came from in the movie industry, but for now, I'm sure it's unlikely.

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.
