    After all the Big 2 need to crush each other's trends.
    Wasn't del Toro rumoured to be doing 'Doctor Strange', as scripted by Niel Gaiman, at one point?

    Yeah. I'd love to see Nolan's "realistic" take on these characters...

    Because the rights reverted back to Alan Moore after the misprinted a picture of his beard on the back of an issue of 'Watchmen'. :-P

    That doesn't mean it will be a direct adaptation, of course.
    No, what means it wont be a direct adaptation is the fact that they would need to have a concurrent 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' movie... which they should do given that it is the only way they'd beat 'The Avengers'.

    Yes, and in the process again stop us from ever seeing a real adaptation of John Constantine - like an American audience would put up with that accent from their main character... you saw he they felt about Bane.

    not exactly sure the reasonings, but for some of the characters they may have gotten through mergers and stuff rights might not be strictly DC/Time Warner. I know Wonder Woman DC/Warner Bros has to secure the rights everytime they use her in another media. She almost wasn't on the Justice League cartoon.. its also the reason there was no Wonder Girl on the Teen Titans cartoon until a brief cameo in the very end, and its the reason Wonder Girl was held back until the 2nd season of Young Justice.

    have you never seen a James Bond movie??? Clearly the accent of Bond hasn't stopped it from making shit loads of money..

    Wonder Woman is a different situation, as she was created under a specific agreement with William Moulton Marston. The characters listed here-- Deadman, The Spectre, Swamp Thing, John Constantine, Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, Zatara, Sargon, Etrigan the Demon-- were all created under work-for-hire for DC.
    ShadowMax: Has anyone actually verified this is the real Steve Wacker?

    Me: Quick Steve, tell us something only Steve Wacker would know.

    Steve Wacker: [The Marvel relaunch] secretly is a reboot.

    Me: If you mean the continuity won't match up with any of the preceding issues, anyone could have predicted that.
