Goyer on Arrow?

04.09.2007

Sorry John Fallon fans - David Goyer won't be making an Arrow in the Head film. If that headline was misleading, I apologize. But Goyer, co-writer of BATMAN BEGINS as the INVISIBLE ads so frequently remind us, will be writing a Green Arrow movie. Currently titled SUPER MAX, the film follows Green Arrow as he's convicted of a crime he didn't commit and sent to a maximum security prison currently filled with a number of his arch-nemeses. Don't think of the movie as a real Green Arrow movie as the dude's costume, trademark goatee and hair will be stripped as he enters the prison. Plus Arrow and all the supervillians in jail will be going by their real names. Think "Heroes" with B and C-level DC characters in prison duking it out. I gotta say, this is about the only way a Green Arrow movie would work (sorry Green Arrow fans out there). I enjoy the character in the comics, but I just don't see him translating to the screen very well. For more on Goyer and SUPER MAX, head over to Wizard's online site to read their interview.

Extra Tidbit: Goyer exec-produced the short-lived series "Threshold," another failed TV venture for the great Carla Gugino.

WTF

A movie about Green Arrow in jail? This has got to be the worst idea EVER.

Hmmm

Is this a late April Fool's Joke? Cause this sounds quite lame.

GL is a basic vigilante that shots peaple in the face with arrows. Sounds pretty easy to translate to me...

Yeah that sounds like a super-maximum pile of shit, Bring us the REAL Green Arrow movie, man (only no trick arrows -- keep it realistic, man; i know you can. Hell look at Batman Begins, you did okay there).

Whoa!

That sounds super-de-duper awesome. Talk about an original spin. If this was a straight up GA movie I wouldn't be half as interested. With Goyer at the helm (Writing wise, I wouldn't want him behind the camera again after [link]you can bet this won't be kiddy shit either. Maybe I'm just excited because what I have in my head right now sounds more like a hard-R than a PG-13, which this undoubtedly will be, but this still sounds badass.

I have to agree that I never thought the Green Arrow would translate to film because of his inherantly fairy-like costume, unless it was a cartoon. But how is this even a Green Arrow movie? It would be like making a Batman movie that's just about Bruce Wayne going to charity events and having sex with hot chicks. It wouldn't be a bad movie, but it wouldn't be Batman. Are we going to see him as Green Arrow before he gets arrested? Otherwise, will people know it's the same character? Why

I think the premise is really good just not for Green Arrow. It seems more of a Punisher thing. Green arrow in general is a bad idea because he looks like a guy with a Robin Hood fetish. I think he should be used in the greenlit JLA movie

Bad Vibe

I must agree on that. The whole Green Arrow in prison thing just seems, well....stupid. The way I see it working if it went above the PG-13 rating.

Idea good, character bad...

I kind of like the premise, though I know little to nothing about Green Arrow (except he reminds me of Peter Pan and Robin Hood). Too bad it couldn't be done with Batman being locked up in Arkham Asylum....

Why bother?

Why would you even bother making something like this.

Goyer, dump this and get started on the superman sequel (just my opinion).
