He also wrote "For The Man That Had Everything" and "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow," that while dark in some respects still portrays Superman in a positive light. Plus he reconstructed the silver age Superman mythos in "Supreme" as well as Doc Savage in "Tom Strong."That's what he did in Watchmen, and also in those comics he did with that Neopolis city. I was under the impression that all he does is write about creeps. Perhaps I need to know more about his career?
I should reserve comment beyond Watchmen. Bear in mind, that was a clean sheet of paper; with established characters, he'd have less room. (Then again, JLI used established characters...)Brady Kj said:That's what he did in Watchmen, and also in those comics he did with that Neopolis city.

An excellent choice.ColeMercury said:A director soon became attached to the project who was very receptive to Uslan’s ideas: Ridley Scott

This is the one thing about the film I liked best. (Also the TV "Flash". Especially the '58 DeSoto.)ColeMercury said:an ambiguous-era setting in Gotham City that would be a timeless mix of 1940s style (in terms of costumes, cars on the street, décor, etc.)
Probably the last guy I'd have thought of.ColeMercury said:The final choice was actor Jeff Bridges
An inspired choice.ColeMercury said:mostly-unknown comic actor named Michael Keaton

Yes cyberpunk and yes Sean Young! Update #9 established that Neuromancer was still written, and Sean Young had already appeared the film Stripes in 1981.Nice update, though the fate of Blade Runner saddens me - no Cyberpunk and no Sean Young
Hold on, Roy Thomas was a big fan of pre-established history, and older superheroes. I don't think he'd yank away Dick and Wally to make Bruce and Barry younger. Or do you know something about Roy Thomas that I don't?Will we hear about how well Supergirl fared? I'm wondering if Helen Slater will be playing her ITTL or if the role will go to someone else.
The mention of Crisis on Infinite Earths makes me wonder how differently things will go. I'm I may be bold to make a suggestion-- maybe Marv Wolfman and George Perez's New Teen Titans never happens ITTL, which might have an interesting ripple effects. According to Greg Weisman, one of the reasons that DC did not go with a complete reboot with Crisis was because NTT was their highest selling title. (i.e. a rebooted Batman meant no Robin, which meant no Teen Titans.) So maybe there is a greater impetus to start the line from scratch, and as I suggested earlier, have Roy Thomas write the CoIE.
Come to think about it, no New Teen Titans may mean no Dick Grayson as Nightwing and no Wally West as the Flash.
