Exclusive: Geoff Johns talks GREEN LANTERN (1 and 2), DC Movies and TV Shows, and a Lot More at the 2010 Scream Awards

     October 17, 2010

If you’re a fan of DC superheroes and curious what the company is doing to bring more of their characters to movie and television screens, you’re going to like the interview I did with Geoff Johns last night at the 2010 Scream Awards.  While most will recognize Johns name because he writes a number of DC comics every month, he’s also the Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment, so he’s one of the few that shapes what direction DC is going in the future.

During the interview we talked about what announcements will be coming and when, is the upcoming Green Lantern trailer a teaser or a full trailer, how tough is it to work on Green Lantern 2 since the first film isn’t finished, what’s the status of Green Lantern and the 3D post conversion, will DC be putting more of their superheroes on TV, what is he writing, will DC superhero movies always be tentpoles (huge budget movies) or will they possibly release lesser known characters as smaller budgeted films, and a lot more.  Again, if you’re a DC fan, you want to hit the jump:

Finally, Geoff Johns is on Twitter (as am I), so you might want to follow him.  And look for more red carpet interviews from the Scream Awards later today and tomorrow.  The 2010 Scream Awards air October 19 at 9pm/8c on Spike TV.
