There's been talk for a while about David Goyer's supervillain prison movie, Super Max. The movie was supposed to have Green Arrow ending up behind bars and stuck in a prison full of super-bad guys. There were originally plans to have cameos from villains like the Joker and Lex Luthor, along with some lesser known bad guys. There simply hasn't been a lot of talk about the movie lately.
In an exclusive talk with David Goyer, MTV inquired about the status of this project.
With how long this has been talked about, I'm not sure what the chances are for it to actually happen. At least the 'general public' should be somewhat familiar with Green Arrow since a version of his character has been on Smallville off and on for the last couple seasons. I'm just not sure about what villains they could line up. Even though each DC movie is put out by Warner Brothers, I would think there'd be some legal entanglements if they tried to use the Joker, Lex Luthor or any villain already attached to an existing franchise. I was never fully sold on the idea of Green Arrow trapped in a super villain prison. It could work. It would be a different type of super hero movie. I'm just not sure how excited I'd be over seeing it. I guess if this ever gets further into production, we'll see what can come out of it.
We're working on that. We're about to bring on another writer. Obviously, Warner Bros. is now heavily into mining all of the various DC properties.
