Tons of News from DC Comics and WB Today

Wow, seems like Warner Brothers and DC Comics let out an avalanche of news for fans today.  Lets start with this: Spring And Fall – The New Slots For DC Entertainment Low Budget Superhero Films.  DC and WB are proposing releasing two low-budget, live-action, superhero movies a year during the Spring and Fall seasons.  Slated to these releases are Suicide Squad, Deathstroke, Booster Gold, and others.  As always, my thoughts go immediately to a Dr. Fate film.  That would be freaking awesome, although with his powers I don't know that you can do a low-budget Dr. Fate film and do it justice.

The second is some disappointing news about the Hourman show.  The following information is from  Bleedingcool.com:

"Because the proposal is that the drug Miraco from the comic book series, in the TV show will have a different effect on each person who takes it, summoning different powers and abilities based on their personality, enhancing existing talents or abilities tenfold, but with terrible side effects.
And a different person will get the powers each week…"
If this is the case, then the show might turn out to be pretty disappointing.  Unless, it is set in Earth 2 and we still get to see the Justice Society come together (hopefully with Dr. Fate being part of the group).


Lastly, there is the proposed live-action Young Justice television show coming to the CW.  Not sure how this show would work, it'll seem pretty difficult to focus on so many characters but I'm willing to watch it.  Especially if it means that Dr. Fate might show up every once in a while.
