Green Arrow Prison Movie Coming

April 9, 2007


Batman Begins and Blade scribe David Goyer has dropped his long discussed plans for The Flash in favor of a take on a DC Comics' villain prison starring comic book dandy Green Arrow. Called Super Max, the film tells the story of a wrongly-imprisoned Green Arrow fighting his way out of prison while both employing the help of and avoiding the wrath of the supervillains he put there.

They shave his goatee and they take his costume and send him to prison for life, and he has to escape. It's like 'Alcatraz,' and he has to team up with, in some cases, some of the very same villains he is responsible for incarcerating in order to get out and clear his name.

I really like that they immediately shave his goatee when he's jailed. As if it isn't already bad enough that they've wrongly incarcerated him, placed him amongst his biggest, most powerful enemies, and taken his only power from him (shooting arrows, I guess), there's that final nail in the coffin. But it's just as well, I suppose. From what I've seen on Oz, he's just going to get it worse with that cute little waxed beard. If he keeps that, he might as well have a green arrow pointed right up his ass.
