Rumors, rumors, rumors -- God, how I love them. They're so cute and cuddly, you just want to wrap your arms around them and never let go. Until you find out they're not true -- that you've been deceived -- and your heart will remain broken until the next rumor pops up. This latest rumor comes from Peter over at Slashfilm. Peter likes to piece things together, based on all the little bits of tasty information found online, in magazines or next to that guy at the urinal. In doing so, he's come up with a scenario in which Kevin Smith could potentially direct a superhero flick after all -- that being the much talked-about Green Arrow film, SuperMax. Basically, Smith made some comments to Wizard regarding which project he intends to take on following Zack and Miri Make a Porno and Red State.
Here's some of what he said: "The 10th movie I think is going to be a comic book movie - not "The Green Hornet," though. There's something that we're kind of negotiating on right now which would actually be pretty cool. I don't know what the audience for it would be, but I would dig making it because I've always been a fan of the character. I can't say what it is though, because they haven't locked it in." Now here's where the facts end and the rumor mill begins: Seeing as Smith previously wrote 15 issues of the Green Arrow comic for DC back in 2000, some folks are suggesting that the project in question is Supermax; the (sort of) Green Arrow film that David Goyer (Batman Begins) sold to Warner Bros. earlier this year. I say 'sort of' because it takes place in a prison full of super villains who are holed up there minus their costumes. Newbie scribe Justin Marx is writing the script, and as of right now, the film does not have a director. They want to release this bad boy in 2010 (which fits Smith's schedule), and it's a character he certainly does love. So will Smith be seeing green after all? Your thoughts?
