Re: Super Max

It depends on how they go with it. If they have Ollie as the main character, with B and C list villains, I'm afraid we're going to see losers like Captain Cold and KGBeast.

Captain Cold is not C-List. He's very high B, and a solid A in any flash book.

I'm down with this. I wanna see Mirror Master run the underground economy.

Re: Super Max

Then really, what's the point of making it a Green Arrow movie at all? You could just put any ex-military schlub in there and it would be the same movie.

I just re-read the article on Super Max, and you're right. Totally. I don't think they'll be going the route I said with the villains.

Because Green Arrow is slightly cooler but has no chance of his own movie?

Looked around but no thread (at leat that came up when I searched)

Wizard reports that David Goyer has sold Warner Bros. on an idea for a different take on the Green Arrow:

"Super Max" is Goyer's take on supervillain incarceration in the DCU. Revolving around a wrongly convicted Green Arrow being whisked away to the super max prison for out-of-control heroes and villains (where he's forced to face a number of inmates he put there), Goyer says the flick—which he's developing with writer Justin Marx—isn't just a Green Arrow film.

Re: Super Max

Super Max is officially a go.

Warner Bros. has locked up a fresh take on the superhero canon.

David Goyer, who helped return Batman to the bigscreen, will produce "Super Max," a tale that finds DC Comics' superhero the Green Arrow incarcerated in a special prison and stripped of his powers.

Story is based on an original idea by Justin Marks, who is set to pen the script. Goyer is producing with partner Jessika Borsiczky.

"Super Max" begins with a traditional comicbook hero, but the storyline takes a turn as Green Arrow's true identity is revealed and he's forced to band together on an escape attempt with the very villains he's previously imprisoned.

A fixture in adapting comicbooks to the bigscreen, Goyer hatched the story for "Batman Begins" and co-wrote the script with helmer Christopher Nolan. He also helped come up with the story for follow-up "The Dark Knight," which Nolan is set to begin lensing this summer from a script by his brother, Jonah Nolan.

Goyer's other upcoming writing credits include "Jumper," which Doug Lyman will direct for 20th Century Fox and New Regency. Goyer also is penning a remake of the sci-fi horror pic "Scanners" for Dimension that Darren Lynn Bousman will helm.

On the directing side, Goyer helmed fantasy-thriller "The Invisible," a Spyglass production that Touchstone Pictures releases April 27. Pic marks his directorial follow-up to "Blade: Trinity."

Marks has set up a number of projects around town, including penning "Voltron" for producer Mark Gordon and adapting vidgame "Street Fighter" for Ashok Amritraj's Hyde Park Entertainment. He's also working on an untitled thriller for producer Kevin Misher and Paramount.

Goyer is repped by CAA. Marks is repped by WMA and Madhouse Entertainment.

Re: Super Max

Goyer talks about it.

s it real? The answer is "YES", it's a real project. It's just in the early stages of development, but amongst the tidal wave of super-hero movies hitting the screen, this more classically post-modern take could be pretty damn fun.

The basic concept actually came about through Justin Marks, a terrific young writer my wife Jessika (a producer) had previously worked with. They thought the idea of a prison-break story set in a jail designed exclusively for super-villains was a cool one. And I heartily agreed. After some discussion, we decided it would be fun to frame a super-hero and toss him into the meta-human mix.

From that point, it seemed like the next logical step was to set the film in either the Marvel or DC Universe. That way, we could populate the movie with all sorts of cool B and C-character Easter Eggs. We eventually landed at DC. Green Arrow, given his hard-hitting, moralistic tendencies, seemed like the most interesting hero to put through the institutional wringer.

I'll keep you posted as things develop.

Re: Super Max

I think all of us should make our own wish list of vllains.

What I wanna' know is how Green Arrow is going to stay Green Arrow. Throwing him in prison and stripping him of everything just makes him a bald guy named Ollie Queen. The bow and arrow make him.

Re: Super Max

He'll probably get them back in a defining way near the end of the movie.

And I bet Brick is one of the villains.

Screw the villians, I want to know who is the warden

James Lipton, host of the show Inside The Actor's Studio. He also played a prison warden on Arrested Development, which you obviously need to see. Seriously, run out and rent the first season. Like, now.
