Wizard is reporting that writer David Goyer has sold an idea to Warner Bros. for a movie focusing on DCU supervillains.
In Goyer’s vision, which he’s developing with fellow writer Justin Marx, Super Max would take place in a maximum security prison housing supervillains where a wrongly convicted Green Arrow has been sent and where he faces a number of inmates he helped put there in the first place.
Goyer tells Wizard, “He’s Green Arrow for the first 10 minutes of the movie, and then he’s arrested and his secret identity is revealed… Of course, tons of people try to kill him while he’s in there. We’ve populated the prison with all sorts of B and C villains from the DC Universe.” Goyer promises fans will recognize plenty of names.
Goyer is also planning a miniseries or graphic novel tie-in with the film.
