I know this is old news, but here.
“ During our interview, the filmmaker also divulged that he was once offered the chance to direct a big screen adaptation of an iconic DC Comics superhero. “I was offered the ‘Green Lantern,’ ” Tarantino told MTV News. “Not since it’s been a script, but just like, ‘Hey we own the ‘Green Lantern.’ Would you like it?’”
Tarantino declined the opportunity and “Lantern” joined the list of other franchises, like “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” that he was offered but never ended up taking on. “Green Lantern,” of course, is now being helmed by Martin Campbell (”Casino Royale”) and will star Ryan Reynolds.”
“I’m a writer. I’d want to use my imagination and not have to fight with geeks’ memories of how this character should be”
He also went on to say “If I were to do something like that, I would want the fun of coming up with the superhero myself.”
I’m totally down for that Quentin. A rated R superhero flick from Tarantino? YES please!
