We started talking about what we got for Christmas and I told him that I got Arrow Season 1 - 3 on DVD to which he replied "Haven't you been watching all along"? I said no I started watching about mid season 3 with the Flash / Arrow crossover so I got a bunch of crap for that lol my brother is also a HUGE comic book fan too, he likes all them, admittedly I don't read or collect comics but I do watch the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and the DCCU (DC Cinematic Universe) as well as the TV Shows in each universe. Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Agents of Shield, Agent Carter and Gotham I love them all for different reasons, and for the most part I thin they are better shows then most because they fit so much into every single episode all the action, drama and storylines in every episode makes it very easy to get hooked on these shows, right ?
After the comic book show talk we ended the call shortly after that and I started thinking about the superhero / action movie that I wrote about a year ago it was untitled like most of my screenplays when I'm in the writing process but I think I might want to revisit this idea sooner rather then later.
Issues With Writing A Superhero Screenplay .....
I hear alot of people take issue with DC and Marvel "stealing" the same characteristics from characters in their respective universes, this is something that I don't want to do but I feel can't be avoided because comic book fans are smart and will say that my hero has the characteristics of this Marvel hero or that DC hero and I have excepted this after a long mental battle within myself.
My hero would be the "he could be anyone" type of hero like a Bruce Wayne (Batman) Tony Stark (Ironman) Oliver Queen (The Green Arrow) Clinton Barton (Hawkeye) not Clark Kent (Superman) No superpowers just extremely smart and skilled, my villian would also be the non super power having type like a Lex Luther i.e. smart, rich, powerful etc. so it would be more of an action movie then a superhero comic type move.
I like the idea of making a film like this but also know that on a low budget like we had when we made Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis it would be very difficult to put in alot of explosions and gun fire etc, but not impossible, we would just have to get creative in our writing and storytelling.
I think fans would like to see more then just horror films from Wicked Carnival Productions but then again I might be wrong. I know as a movie fan I watch all kinds of movies and have written all different genres of screenplays but horror has always been my main focus because I think it's the least politically correct genre of film and it's the type of film I watch more then others.
