DC heroes on hold?

Warner Bros. seems to be facing a conundrum regarding how to approach their inactive stable of DC Comics super-characters. After all, their grim-and-gritty THE DARK KNIGHT pushed some mad stacks this past summer. But then, so did Marvel's more breezy, family-friendly IRON MAN. What to do?

We already have an idea: the plan is apparently to follow TDK (and WATCHMEN) and "go dark", as screenwriter John August just explained when he saw his kid-centric SHAZAM! project get shelved. Now noted comic guy David Goyer (BLADE, BATMAN BEGINS) further elucidates to IESB: "A lot of the DC movies at Warner Brothers are all on hold while they figure out, they're going to come up with some new plan, methodology, things like that so everything has just been pressed pause on at the moment."

So one could assume this means that the planned JUSTICE LEAGUE, THE FLASH, GREEN ARROW (aka SUPERMAX), WONDER WOMAN, GREEN LANTERN, HAWKGIRL, ZATANNA, BLUE DEVIL, CREEPER, MR. TERRIFIC, BEPPO THE SUPERMONKEY, BOOSTER GOLD and the supposed MAN OF STEEL movie (among others) are in a "holding pattern" until the studio makes some ham-handed decision on how to appropriately (or inappropriately) present them.

Extra Tidbit: On the plus side, maybe this means someone will make a movie based on Garth Ennis' HITMAN series.
