Gullermo del Toro says a lot of things.
Riddle me this, Mr. Gordon…hold on one sec, actually, I won’t know the answer until I finish my popsicle.
We all know that Adam Scott’s Ben is going to DC to pursue a political career, but the actor let slip another, spoilery bit of information…

It appears confirmed that original Green Lantern, Alan Scott, is to be DC’s previously announced gay character.
New ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Images
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ graces the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly and to go along with that there’s a handful of new ‘Dark Knight Rises’ images.There’s not a ton of new information delivered from these images, although there is a new image of Joseph Gordon Levitt, who still strikes me as much to prominent an actor to simply be playing a random police officer. It’s also interesting seeing Lucius and Bruce Wayne being surprisingly friendly since ‘The Dark Knight’ ended with them basically severing their working relationship. Fox Warner Bros. is so tight with the ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ promotional materials, anything new gets my attention.
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ opens July 20th.
As part of the network’s partnership with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, a multi-platform block of other original programming based on the DC Comics library of characters will make up “DC Nation,” which will launch in 2012 with “Green Lantern: The Animated Series.”
And the ’80s classic, “ThunderCats,” is getting reimagined for a new generation of viewers. And so are icons Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck in “The Looney Tunes Show,” which premieres May 3. Then there’s the small-screen take on the big-screen hit “How to Train Your Dragon.”
They should totally go up against Big Bang Theory as The Justice League…
An interesting rumor about a new live-action ‘Batman’ series has cropped up over at ComicBookMovie.com. According to their source, Warner Bros. is already planning to create a new television series to take up the caped crusader’s mantle after Christopher Nolan is (presumably) done with him with 2012’s 'The Dark Knight Rises.'
And the disasters on this set continue. What kind of crew is Bay running over there.
Geoff Johns, speaking at New York Comic-Con, confirmed that Warner Bros and DC are not currently planning for a superhero team-up Justice League of America movie. ComicBookMovie reports that when Johns was asked about the possibility of shared-universe films á la Marvel, Johns responded with the following:
“I’m going to speak frankly: I think our characters are bigger than Marvel’s.” He said that he’d rather spend time building each character on his or her own rather than “smashing them together.”
Whose is bigger Marvel’s or DC’s? (And I’m not talking about characters.)
