Unused DC Movie Scripts Could Live on as Animated Features
Like any studio, Warner Bros. has hundreds of unused scripts lying around, many of which revolve around the DC Comics superheroes. Take your pick of any hero and there’s probably at least one unused screenplay, possibly dozens. Batman and Superman alone must have enough to fill a small warehouse. But according to DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, there’s a chance some of those scripts could find new life.
Asked recently by Collider whether an unmade movie script like J.J. Abrams’ Superman: Flyby could be adapted as an animated feature, Johns replied, “There’s always a possibility. That’s not the first time that’s come up. There’s always discussions about what would be really cool to do.”
The most recent DC Universe Animated Original Movie, Superman: Unbound — based on the Action Comics story arc by Johns and artist Gary Frank — arrived in stores today.
