Green Lantern screenwriter Marc Guggenheim has just completed his latest draft based on Greg Berlanti and Michael Green’s script. He took a few moments to talk to SciFi Wire about the writing process and where the movie is at.
“You know I really can’t [say anything],” he said. “I’ve sworn a blood oath of secrecy in relation to the project. But, you know, the thing I can tell you is that it is a very loving and respectful approach.”
“The goal here is to do the best cinematic representation of the Green Lantern character. You know, there’s no desire on anyone’s part to completely change the character and just call this other character Green Lantern and try to … draft off the name recognition. This is all about ‘How do we bring the best version of this character to the silver screen?’”
“We’ve drawn heavily from … a lot of different sources in terms of the comic books. … The character … is several decades old, so … we’ve really had an incredible amount of source material to cherry-pick from.“
