More Aquaman

Aquaman_Ross_02

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?

Wonder Woman Again

Wonder_Woman_02

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!

Again…#SaveConstantine

NBC-Constantine

Recently acclaimed actor Mr. Stephen Amell, who plays the lead role of Oliver Queen on the hit CW series “Arrow” began talking on-line about efforts to save the TV series “Constantine“. Mr. Amell would not only like to see the show revived, be it on NBC, or some other network, but he would also like to cameo in the series as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow. Due to this wish on the part of Mr. Amell, it would be wonderful to see the CW network pick up “Constantine”, and incorporate it into their “Arrow”/”The Flash“/”DC’s Legends of the Future” and CBS’s “Supergirl” TV world/continuity.

Why take a day of my writing blog to talk about this here? Because, in part, Desirée Lee and I loved “Constantine”. We want to see more. We want the show brought back. I’m trying to do my own part for the #SaveConstantine efforts that are still going on. And, because, I’d love to write for the show. I’ve talked about that in a couple of prior posts on this website/blog. See those posts here and here, respectively.

If anyone reading this can help get the show back on the air, and enable me to co-write even a single episode of it, please do so! I’m a bestselling, award-winning fantasy/horror/paranormal author with screenwriting, and comic book writing experience.

ATTN: Warner Bros.

Justice_League

As you all well know by this time, I’m a huge comic book fan. I’m a non-repentant fanboy of the DC Comics Universe ( DCU ). You can’t imagine how thrilled I am right now with the amount of DCU-based television and film projects that are either currently on the air, or in development. We have “Arrow” and “The Flash” on the CW Network, with “iZombie” – a comic book I haven’t read – coming soon. Fox is airing “Gotham”. NBC has “Constantine”. CBS is rumored to have a “Supergirl” series in the works.

Any the movies! We have “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” due out in 2016, “Wonder Woman”, “Justice League”, a “Green Lantern” reboot, “The Flash”, “Aquaman”, “Shazam”, and several others in various stages of development right now, too, including new solo Batman and Superman films. I plan to be in the theater for each of those I’ve listed here. I can’t wait!

As a bestselling, award-winning writer of books, comic books and screenplays, and a fan of the DCU, I would love, love, love to work on a DCU-based project. Be it an actual DCU comic book title, a novel based on a character, or a TV or film project. I’ve posted on this blog before regarding a “Green Lantern” sequel, and my desire to work on an “Aquaman” project. I would link back to the “Green Lantern” post, but that was regarding an article I had written for “Nuclear Winter Entertainment” when I was a contributing writer for them. That site is now defunct, and the article linked to in the aforementioned post is, like the rest of the site, gone.

Batman is my primary DCU character. I have story ideas involving him that I’d like to write. Since the launching of DC’s New 52, I’ve become almost as big of an Aquaman fan, too, and want very much to work on an “Aquaman” project. As DC and Warner Bros. don’t seem to have too much faith in that character, maybe they’d be willing to allow me a shot at that?

What do you say, DC Comics, and Warner Bros.? Here I stand, or sit, to be fully truthful – a bestselling, award-winning writer of books, comics, and screenplays, as well as a DCU fan, asking you flat-out to give me a shot at a DCU-based project. Comic? A novel? TV show? Film? Your choice, guys! Please let me hear from you!
