On yesterday’s Showest red carpet, I was able to talk with director Greg Berlanti about his upcoming movie Life as We Know it, Green Lantern, and I asked him about the rumors he might direct The Flash. Regarding The Flash, he says he’s busy with a pilot at ABC and his movie so he hasn’t thought about it. Basically, he ducked my question.
And even though Berlanti isn’t directing Green Lantern, he did write the script and he’s a producer on the project, so he’s definitely someone who knows what’s going on. I asked him if they tried to work in some other DC superheroes like Marvel has been doing and he says in early drafts of the script they had some of that stuff, and the studio is starting to think in the same way as Marvel. He also talks about what fans might like about the film. Of course we also talked about his movie – which stars Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel.
