    Arguably, the biggest news is that Shawn Ryan is writing it. I'm totally ready for this.

    Pain. Or something along those lines.

    I was cautiously optimistic before seeing that; now I'm DEFINITELY optimistic. That combo is encouraging.

    So Wildstorm is getting a film before Wonder Woman or The Flash. Great.

    And a Vertigo character got a movie before Green Lantern.

    Hollywood doesn't care what comic book characters are popular among people who read comic books. The stuff that's important to us isn't really important to anyone else.

    Pain. Carver can't feel pain or anything else for that matter.

    If it makes you feel better they both had tv shows before Wildstorm was a thing.

    Sounds like an interesting enough project.

    Actually it is great. Sleeper was one of the best things Wildstorm put out. Honestly, if they don't want to adapt Azarrello's Wonder Woman, I don't give two shits about that project. I can't think of any classic Flash stories that don't involve giant crossovers.

    Sure, the 24-issue crime/espionage/noir comic with a single set of creators and a single coherent storyline is getting a film before Wonder Woman or The Flash. And when your mainstream superheroes eventually get adapted to film, they'll get trilogies.
    "doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results" is neither the actual definition of insanity nor an actual Albert Einstein/Ben Franklin/Mark Twain quote.
