'Green Lantern 2' and 'The Flash' Moving Forward

Heat Vision Blog reports that DC/WB has hired Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim – who co-wrote the upcoming "Green Lantern" film – to tackle the treatments for a "Green Lantern" sequel and "The Flash" movie.

According to THR, as part of the deal, the trio would then go on and write the screenplay for one of the two projects, though which has not yet been determined.

The first "Green Lantern" is currently filming in New Orleans and isn't set to hit theaters for another whole year (and we haven't even seen a trailer yet). If a treatment is already being sought for a sequel, Warner Bros. must be liking what it is seeing on set. Hopefully more of the film will be revealed at this year's Comic Con.

Meanwhile, on "The Flash" front, it looks like the big screen adaptation of the scarlet speedster is finally making some real progress after several years in the works. Comic legend Geoff Johns, who was recently appointed chief creative officer of DC Entertainment, recently reintroduced Barry Allen in the comics (a version of The Flash that had not been seen since the mid-1980s) and is working on having him as the focus on "The Flash" movie.

Though it's taken a little longer than Marvel's camp, it sounds like DC Entertainment finally has its head on its shoulders and Geoff Johns is the right guy to help bring DC Comics properties to the big screen and make lovers of both movies and comic books very happy.

What do you think about a "Green Lantern" sequel already in the works? Who do you think should play the Flash?
