Michael Green, co-writers of “Green Lantern” has been tapped to provide the script. Since this is being classified as a reboot, it will, presumably, feature a completely new cast.

MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS
When I took over the Comic Reel two months ago, no one would have believed Marvel and Disney would come together. Look how much can change in such a short time. Clearly, everyone is still finding their footing in the new landscape, but surely the news will get more heated (than usual) in the next few days. If you discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The power is yours! Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya bracing for the future threat of finishing Batman: Arkham Asylum.
