Two Comic Movies coming to big screen, The Flash and The Green Lantern!

MTV (http://moviesblog.mtv.com) reports that "Wedding Crashers" director David Dobkin is the new director for the film adaptation of DC Comics' "The Flash." The project has undergone many changes, with David Goyer and Shawn Levy previously at the helm for the project.

The site reports that the film will exist in the same universe as the forthcoming "Justice League" project.

Dobkin revealed to the site that his version will deal with the Wally West storyline of The Flash, which tells of a superhero who can run at the speed of lightning.


The Hollywood Reporter prints today that "Everwood" creator Greg Berlanti has been tapped to co-write and direct a live-action adaptation of DC Comics' superhero "Green Lantern" for Warner Bros. Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green are co-writing the screenplay, with Donald De Line set to produce.

"Green Lantern" was created in 1940. The modern story will focus on "Hal Jordan, a test pilot who finds a downed alien spacecraft. A dying alien passes his ring to Jordan, introducing the man to a wider world that includes an interstellar police force known as the Green Lantern Corps and its overseers, the Guardians of the Universe, who live on the planet Oa. "

Like most superheroes, Green Lantern has a weakness and that is the color yellow.
