Max Landis to make a superhero pitch to Warner Bros.
I am fully aware that I write most of the Max Landis articles on this site. This is purely coincidental as they seem to drop on my shift. What I will say about my own opinion towards Landis is that he seems rather passionate about comics, has some interesting ideas, and is a good writer thus far.
Landis might be responsible for CHRONICLE but people might associate him more with THE DEATH AND RETURN OF SUPERMAN. While CHRONICLE dealt with superhuman powers, Landis wants a piece of something more DC. During his IAmA with Reddit this exchange happened:
Presented with the opportunity to write a super flick, that would get made regardless, for any character, any arc, anything you want. Who would you choose and why?
Either a version of Green Lantern that played like ET meets Stand By Me using the goth/punk seen and Kyle Raynor, or Wonder-Woman, using a pitch that I intend to make to WB.
Then a little above this, there was this question:
If you could do a reboot of any character, TV show or film what would it be? And what would you do with it?
You'll know sooner than you think.
He may not have CHRONICLE 2 but it seems that he's got something a little more significant up his sleeves. That whole GREEN LANTERN pitch threw me for a loop. Excuse me while I try to envision this. Then there's Wonder Woman who has had a hell of a time making it to the big and small screen with Lynda Carter's run being the exception.
He's also cool with Batffleck in case any of you are wondering.
