DC picking up the pace with Flash and Green Lantern 2 progress

I don't remember this much talk about IRON MAN 2 before IRON MAN even came out, but I guess the folks at DC and Warner Bros. are a little more cocky about GREEN LANTERN being a hit. I mean, it's got Ryan Reynolds, a comic book base, and so much CGI it will make George Lucas cry, what could go wrong, right?

Meanwhile, the DC movie that Reynolds ACTUALLY should have been starring in, THE FLASH, has gotten its first treatment turned in, though an actual script is still on the way. Here's what writer Marc Guggenheim has to say about both projects (via Newsarama)

"We've turned in the treatment for 'Flash.' And we're talking about 'Green Lantern 2.' It would be a quality problem to have, to think about a third ['Green Lantern' right now]. But one step at a time. I think it's very hard to talk about these characters in a closed-ended, sort of non-sequel way, especially characters like The Flash and Green Lantern, which have such rich, long histories. You can't help but talk about the characters and go, 'Oh, I really want to do the movie where we get to this moment, or that moment.' So you're always talking in terms of sequels, but no, nothing's planned. We haven't even written the script yet for 'The Flash.' It's very much one step at a time for 'The Flash.'"

So GREEN LANTERN 2 appears to have priority, as a trilogy is being pushed already. It seems like the studio is heavily pushing off a WONDER WOMAN movie, as clearly that will likely be their biggest challenge. A female superhero film? How will audiences ever respond? Just don't make it CATWOMAN or ELEKTRA and that's a start I guess.

Do you think it's a bit premature to be talking about a GREEN LANTERN trilogy?

Extra Tidbit: I think I'm most worried about the CGI Lantern costume. That just seems like a baaad idea.
