‘Chronicle’s’ Max Landis Plans to Pitch Wonder Woman Movie to Warner Bros.

max landis Everyone wants to know what Max Landis would do with established superheroes. The writer of the found-footage super-power movie Chronicle impressed a lot of people with the story of three teenage friends who deal with their newfound telekinetic powers.

Landis, who recently revealed his idea for a DC Comics project that never materialized, was asked on Reddit about other comic characters he’d like to work on, and replied: “[I’d like to do] either a version of Green Lantern that played like ET meets Stand By Me using the goth/punk seen and Kyle Rayner, or Wonder Woman, using a pitch that I intend to make to WB.”

So, what does all this mean? Honestly, not too much. There’s probably a small army of screenwriters with varying levels of clout trying to pitch Warner Bros. on its best-known superheroine. Hopefully, this potential plethora of pitches will help give the studio plenty of solid options to pick from, and we’ll eventually get a killer Wonder Woman movie.

    Kyle Rayner, yes! That’s the beauty of the Green Lantern franchise / mythos… they don’t have to wait years to try again or even reboot, just use another Earth GL. If the first one didn’t work, try with a new character. If the second one works, bring the two together in the next one.

    As much as i would love to see Kyle Rayner on the big screen as Green Lantern i’m sure WB would use John Stewart or reboot Hal Jordan before considering him.

    those all sound terrible. stop making movies and stop dressing like a hipster Joker.

    Damn. You sound really intimidating. Are you the toughest guy at your high school?

    Goth/Punk Green Lantern. Seems legit.

    Odds are that a Green Lantern film won’t the light of day until after the Justice League movie opens – and only if it does phenomenally well. But the JL film will almost certainly be the recently-rebooted “all-star” Justice League, with Hal Jordan.
    But I’d like to see a Green Lantern movie that figures out a way to use the secondary Earth Lanterns (Kyle, Guy, John), but that may be unrealistic. Maybe someday, if the next GL film does well enough to garner some sequels…
