Steven Spielberg's adapting the Blackhawks to film

Wouldn't you know it, a guy who was once one of the most prominent directors in Hollywood has been assigned to direct the famous WW2-based comics adventure Blackhawks, originally from Quality Comics before DC acquired it in the Silver Age:
Steven Spielberg is jumping into the world of DC Comics.

The iconic filmmaker is tackling his first DC Comics property, the World War II action-adventure hero Blackhawk.

Spielberg, along with his Amblin Entertainment, will produce Blackhawk for Warner Bros., and is developing it as a directing vehicle, the studio announced Tuesday. The move reteams him with the studio behind his latest tentpole, Ready Player One.

David Koepp, who has worked with Spielberg writing the blockbusters Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, War of the Worlds and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, is penning the script.

The material seems tailor-made for the filmmaker behind the Indiana Jones movies. The comic book series told of an international squadron of heroic pilots led by a man named Blackhawk who fought the Nazis and their ilk in World War II.
Yes, they'd seem to be the right folks to handle a project like this. But Spielberg's gone downhill since 2001 with several examples of leftist politics now in his resume (War of the Worlds and Munich were some of the most loathsome films he ever made), and he hasn't improved much since. Kingdom of the Crystal Skull also wasn't as good as Raiders of the Lost Ark still is; IMO, the first Indiana Jones adventure from 1981 is what still holds up the best today. And The Post, his most recent production, is surely one of the most ultra-liberal films he's turned out lately.

So how do we know he won't seek the opportunity to exploit the Blackhawks for his latest bout of leftism? That's decidedly the big question surrounding this project, because Batman vs. Superman had some liberal propaganda turning up, and the Justice League movie may have too. If Blackhawks is exploited, not just by Spielberg but by practically the whole Warner Brothers business, then they'll have denigrated a notable creation yet again. They won't improve the DC adaptation resume if they keep that up.

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.
