DC Movie Roundup: David Goyer Would Love To Do GREEN LANTERN, Gal Gadot Is Excited For Whats To Come, Darren Aronofsky Wanted MAN OF STEEL And More
You know we don’t shy away from the roundup here at Comic Book Therapy, so I’m back at you with another one. This one revolves around those involved, or in Darren Aronofsky’s case those who wanted to be involved, in the DC Cinematic Universe. There are a couple of different topics to jump into so let’s get right to it!
Catwoman Has Some Advise For Lex LuthorAnne Hathaway is busy promoting Rio 2, a film in which she co-stars with new Lex Luthor Jesse Eisenberg. While she sat down with Total Film, The Dark Knight Rises star was asked if she had any advise for Eisenberg when it comes to tackling a big blockbuster superhero movie. “I wish I could say something, but it’s going to be his experience. Keep a journal, which I’m sure he does in some version of that already, just to remember it. Don’t be afraid to make it your own.In my case, people criticized, criticized, criticized until they saw it, and then a lot of people likes what I did. Don’t listen to anyone, do your thing. They cast you for a reason.” And then when asked how she thinks he’ll do she responded, “I think he’ll be remarkable, I’m excited to see it.” Check out that video below as well.
“Superman’s one of the holy grails. It’s Superman. It’s the best superhero. Batman is great, of course, but it’s Superman. He’s the same level. That possibility was great. I thought Zack was a great choice, and I loved his ‘Watchmen’ movie. I thought it was great. I thought that as a fan of the comic, you couldn’t hope for a better interpretation. I liked the orthodoxy of it. It was interesting to add the pathos that they put into the character. It’s a hard one to do. You look at what Christopher Reeve did, and it was perfect, because it captured that ‘good old boy’ thing. But to try and redo that again and bring that for a modern audience is tough in a post-‘Batman’ and ‘Wolverine’ world. It’s hard to do that.”
So there you have it. Goyer’s would like a go at Green Lantern, Gadot is ready for the excitement being cast as a superhero can bring, Hathaway tell Eisenberg to be himself and Aronofsky is a little bummed he didn’t get to direct Man Of Steel. I would like to see what Goyer could do with Green Lantern to be honest. The first 20 minutes on Krypton was superbly written, and like Collider pointed out, I think it could translate well to the Green Lantern universe.
