Green Arrow - From Smallville to the Big S"Green"

Prison is not s good place for a Queen, and thats just where Green Arrow Oliver Queen may find himself in Super Max, an in development film. Its a new take, but could be pretty cool.

Wizard describes the film as follows:

Maybe it was giving up the gig writing and directing “The Flash” for Warner Bros., but it seems like David Goyer’s a little bit more into villains these days.

Just weeks after he and Warners envisioned very different takes on the Flash, Goyer sold the studio on an idea that focused on the more villainous side of the DC Universe.

“Super Max” is Goyer’s take on supervillain incarceration in the DCU. Revolving around a wrongly convicted Green Arrow being whisked away to the super max prison for out-of-control heroes and villains (where he's forced to face a number of inmates he put there), Goyer says the flick—which he’s developing with writer Justin Marx—isn’t just a Green Arrow film.

“He’s Green Arrow for the first 10 minutes of the movie, and then he’s arrested and his secret identity is revealed,” says Goyer, who also has plans to do a graphic novel or miniseries that would tie in to the possible film. “They shave his goatee and they take his costume and send him to prison for life, and he has to escape. It’s like ‘Alcatraz,’ and he has to team up with, in some cases, some of the very same villains he is responsible for incarcerating in order to get out and clear his name. Of course, tons of people try to kill him while he’s in there. We’ve populated the prison with all sorts of B and C villains from the DC Universe. For the fans, there will be all sorts of characters the hardcore comic book junkies will know, but they’re all going to be there under their human names and no one is wearing a costume, but there will be a lot of characters with powers and things like that.”

wasn't that the last year's worth of plot from Brubaker's Daredevil run?

Okay so lets take everything about a superhero, remove it, and throw him in prision. Sounds like a bad made for TV movie.

When will Hollywood learn to stop handing Super Hero movies to people who hate Super Heroes?

Marvel has much better villains imho.
I'd rather a movie based on 'The Vault', featuring the bad guys less likely to turn up in a Spider-man movie.

Green Arrow's arch enemy is poor comic book sales.
