As you all well know by now, I’m a big fan of DC Comics. Batman is my main character, but, over the past few years, I’ve become a big Aquaman fan, too. I talked about that in this post a while back.
Several years ago an “Aquaman” television series had been in development. That project didn’t make it. If I remember right, a pilot for that project was filmed, but never aired. From what I’ve seen, it didn’t look as if that show would truly do justice to the character. Aquaman is an amazing character. After watching “Arrow”, “The Flash”, the pilot for “Supergirl”, and seeing previews for the upcoming show “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”, I know it’s possible for television to handle complex and difficult characters on an episodic basis. Yes, a TV series featuring Aquaman would be visually complex. But looks at “The Flash”! They’ve used Gorilla Grodd (and won an award for those CGI effects!) and routinely continue to show us Firestorm. I’ve read that the “Supergirl” pilot had a budget of $14 million. My jaw dropped when I saw that!
I really want a network to throw resources like that at an “Aquaman” series. The call I put out to DC Comics and Warner Bros. in the post I linked to above still stands. How about it, guys?
Watching the pilot episode of “Supergirl” this past Monday evening got me to thinking, once again, about the “Wonder Woman” television series that almost happened a few years ago. I would still love to see such a project happen – if it were done right. As I talked about some time ago in this post, I’m not at all happy with the past few years’ worth of changes to the character in the comics.
The call I put out to DC Comics and Warner Bros. in the post I linked to above still stands!
By the way, the “Supergirl” pilot looks to have done very well in the ratings according to this article. We’re looking forward to the next episode here in our household!
Something I forgot to mention in my post here yesterday – I also have long hair. It’s down past my waist, and usually pulled back into a ponytail to keep it out of my way. Some people think this adds to the intimidation factor.
So, as I asked yesterday, do you all think such an appearance in public as I described then helps given my status as a writer? Or hurts it? Or makes no difference?
