Warner Bros./DC Comics Having Meetings To Bring DC To The Screen

Both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety are reporting that Warner Bros. Pictures is holding new meetings with DC Comics to discuss a new direction for its film adaptations. With Marvel Studios showing how to bring there characters to the screen DC wants to do the same:
While we are not going to go into the specifics of the meetings, we're constantly looking at how best to exploit the DC Comics characters and properties. DC is an incredibly valuable asset to Warner Bros. and plays an important role across the entire studio by providing development and franchise opportunities for all media, including films, television, home entertainment, animation, consumer products, video games and digital platforms

Well they really only have themselves to blame on this one getting so many of there projects stuck in development hell, for example Wonder Woman under Joss Weadon was a match made in heaven and Warner's blew it wanting to go in a different direction. Well its not all bad with the Dark Knight looking to be one of if not the biggest summer film and they have Superman back in the screen calling out for a great sequel. DC have a great wealth of characters too ranging from Green Lateren and Green Arrow, Flash and The Question plus they also have there Vertigo range Preacher, The Sandman, 100 Bullets, Fables and Y: The Last Man. What DC need to do is what they done rite with Superman and Batman and get a great cast and director to bring them to life also get Weadon back on Wonder Woman.
