A common complaint, fair or not, among comic book fans is that DC Comics are more confusing than Marvel Comics.
TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT DVD (2010)
Without indulging that argument, it’s undeniable that at the moment the upcoming slate of Marvel Studios films is much, much less complicated than Warner Bros. films based on the “distinguished competition” currently in development. Since May and Iron Man’s nearly-$100 million opening weekend, Marvel Studio’s schedule has been nice and tidy - Iron Man 2 and Thor in 2010, Captain America and Avengers in 2011, with films like Runaways andAnt-Man also in the mix.
Okay, if Warner Bros. has decided to build a Justice League movie from solo movies on up, what does this mean for the Teen Titans movie, announced in May of 2007?
Akiva Goldsman and Kerry Foster were attached as producers through their Weed Road banner, and Mark Verheiden was attached to write the script. As recently as April of this year, Verheiden spoke about the project in the present tense, in fact, describing it as "back on". The writer revealed he had turned in a draft to Warner Bros., which would feature Nightwing and Robin, would be very faithful to the Marv Wolfman/George Perez iconic run of the comic book, and described Warner Bros. as "absolutely committed" to doing the movie.
