01.08.09 by Ryan
David Goyer, writer/director of the upcoming The Unborn told IESB that the DC comic book adaptations at Warner Brothers, movies like The Flash, which Goyer was writing at one point, have been put on hold.
"A lot of the DC movies at Warner Brothers are all on hold while they figure out ... they're going to come up with some new plan, methodology, things like that so everything has just been pressed pause on at the moment. It was the doubleheader of both Iron Man and The Dark Knight coming out, so more than ever I think they've realized, I think DC was responsible for 15% of Warner Brothers' revenue this year, something crazy like that, so they realized that comic books, it's become a new genre, one of the most successful genres."
Also on hold is Goyer's adaptation of X-Men Origins: Magneto, and Goyer told Craveonline: "they [Fox] still want to make it and they're hoping Wolverine will be a big hit and that'll open the way for Magneto."
