|Hello everybody, I have been busy..|
I think Superman, Spiderman and Batman have been done to death! There are heaps of other superheroes or comic book characters that studios and networks can dive into. Say, if Watchmen or The Avengers is made into a TV series, I think they will be extremely successful.
Deadman? Deadman is a ghost, formerly circus trapeze artist named Boston Brand who performed under the name Deadman, a stage persona including a red costume and white corpse makeup. Boston Brand was murdered, his sprite was given special power by a Hindu goddess to posses any living being in order to find his murderer and obtain justice. Sounds a bit like The Cape?
Deadman crossed over with other DC stories such as Superman, Batman, Jason Todd, Green Arrow and Justice League.
This certainly sounds very very interesting. I would really love to see this taking off. The CW new boss expressed his interest to develop a new DC show for the network. Let's see what the Kripke-master can do with this baby! I still hope The Sandman is a go with Kripke attached to it. A movie perhaps? I know I am greedy, but I just can't wait to see Kripke's next project.
Kripke is also working on the movie Haunted, which is a WB project.
