Newsarama’s Vaneta Rogers interviews Marc Guggenheim about the Green Lantern and Flash movies. Readers of this blog will no doubt appreciate his first quote:
“We’ve turned in the treatment for Flash.”
Next up: the script. “It’s very much one step at a time for The Flash.”
Since Guggenheim, Greg Berlanti and Michael Green are also working on the story for Green Lantern 2, Rogers asked him about possible Flash sequels. They’re not planning one at this stage, but they are open to it.
Guggenheim will be covering two other speedsters while The Flash is in development. He takes over Justice Society of America with issue #44 (scheduled for October), where he’ll write the original Flash, Jay Garrick. He’s also a consulting producer on Berlanti’s TV show No Ordinary Family, which features a speedster played by Julie Benz (Dexter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and premieres on September 28.
I’ve been impressed with Guggenheim, with his work in comics on FFMA and on the short lived Eli Stone. I look forward to seeing how he writes Jay in JSA and it’ll be interesting to hear more about the treatment they’ve turned in for The Flash movie.
What I’m curious about is which Flash the movie will be about…my vote is for Wally West.
And as for a Flash sequel — get the first one written first!
