Grant Morrison


If you’ve been doing any sort of scorekeeping at home in regards to how many characters from Marvel Comics have gotten feature film adaptations vs. how many characters from DC comics have gotten the same over the past decade or so, then probably you’ve come to the conclusion that Warner Bros. has been dropping the ball with their stable of superhero properties. While Marvel has been systematically creating an interconnected cinematic universe that is now expanding out to include a whole host of new television series, Warners has desperately struggled when it comes to making movies for any of their characters other than Superman or Batman (let’s all just agree to forget Green Lantern). And even their efforts on those fronts seem to be strife-laden recently, seeing as it was announced last week that Zack Snyder’s sequel to Man of Steel—the much hyped but still unnamed Superman/Batman movie that’s supposed to finally begin to set up an interconnected DC film universe—has been pushed back 10 months from its original start date [via Variety] so that everyone in charge can actually make a plan regarding what they want to do rather than just jumping in blindly and making a movie with a handful of superheroes in it in the hopes that it will somehow result in a highly lucrative Justice League followup. It basically seems like the people at Warner Bros. don’t have any idea what they’re doing in regards to superhero movies at all.


Happy! Issue One

We’re less than a month away from finally seeing RZA‘s feature debut, The Man with the Iron Fists, and post-Fists, it’ll be interesting to see where his directorial career goes. Based on today’s news that RZA is adapting comic book author Grant Morrison‘s brand new series, “Happy!,” with Morrison set to handle the script, it appears that the newly-minted director is already looking towards the future. For those of you who have yet to pick up “Happy!,” including myself, here’s the official plot synopsis: “Meet Nick Sax, corrupt, intoxicated ex-cop turned hit-man, adrift in a stinking twilight world of casual murder, soulless sex, eczema and betrayal. With a hit gone wrong, a bullet in his side, the cops and the mob on his tail, and a monstrous child killer in a Santa suit on the loose, Nick and his world will be changed forever this Christmas. By a tiny blue horse called Happy.” If a tiny blue horse doesn’t sell you on a film, then what will?
