Yesterday was quite a whirlwind. For what seems like many moons we didn't hear a peep from The Brothers Warner. After years of leaks so big they could have sunk the Titanic they somehow came up with a formula to keep things quiet in Burbank. For a short while at least. After fans were treated with the news a couple weeks ago that Christopher Nolan was going to guide a new Superman film to theaters, yesterday it was revealed that both David Goyer and Jonah Nolan are lined up to write the script. While we're here, why not throw a couple more logs on the already crackling fire?
IESB has learned exclusively that WB is lining up a director for another high profile DC character; Greg Berlanti is the leading contender to helm "The Flash". The name should ring a bell or two, Berlanti wrote "Green Lantern" with one my favorites Marc Guggenheim and was once attached to direct the film before WB settled on Martin Campbell. From what IESB is hearing WB is very high on Berlanti from his prep on "Green Lantern" and would love him to run with "The Flash". If you remember, two weeks to this day, IESB reported that we would be hearing some news on "The Flash". Here we are delivering on that promise.
DC Entertainment is surely on fire. Nelson and company are hitting the ground running, pun intended. The Nolan Bros. and David Goyer getting their hands all over the Caped Crusader and The Man of Steel sounds about right."Green Lantern" moving forward under the watchful and capable eye of Martin Campbell and possibly now Greg Berlanti dashing into the fray with "The Flash".
We at IESB will let the fans enjoy this almost unthinkable news, but alas, our jobs are never done. We've already started making calls and shooting off emails to uncover the next scoop. Stay tuned.
