Which beloved old limited series is DC going to drag kicking and screaming through a pile of shit next?
Taking all bets.
I'm sure they have a lot of shit planned for Sandman once Gaiman dies, but, unless he gets killed in an accident or a shooting or something, it'll be a good while before that happens.
You can be sure they coaxed him into Overture. It was alright, but I could have lived with not knowing how Morpheus got trapped.
And let's not forget about that movie they're trying for.
We already had Before Watchmen. And Hellblazer got fucked by them bringing Constantine into the DCU and making him hang out with capes.
So that leaves TDKR and Lucifer, and Sandman.
Maybe I'm losing my mind, but that's exactly what I was getting at: every one on the list is an old property that was dragged out and milked for brand recognition. Makes no sense for Lucifer, though: I can't imagine anyone who read it would want a continuation.
If they touch pic related, I can't be held responsible for my actions. Probably won't happen, though, thank christ.
what about The Matrix?
I don't think anyone could do it well, it just doesn't seem like it would translate successfully into a movie format.
>Hellblazer got fucked by them bringing Constantine into the DCU
He was always in the DCU, in one of the earlier issues of Hellblazer he makes a remark about how dumb superheroes are and that there are too many of them
>He's desperate for mainstream recognition
I honestly don't think he is. If you read Supergods, he talks about how he could do the Mark Millar thing (lowbrow movie pitches disguised as comics) but prefers to homage, like, esoteric silver age shit. Maybe my fanboyism is blinding me, but I think Morrison could get mainstream recognition if he dialed the crazy down; I think he just doesn't want to.
I think they're referring more to the fact that he used to just do his own thing, but then they went and literally put him in a cape.
Sandman was in the DCU, too, but it was, by and large, isolated.
>it just doesn't seem like it would translate successfully into a movie format.
Yes. Thank you. The one thing I could see, would be an animated movie, if they put tons of effort into it.
