According to Wizard Magazine, David S. Goyer's next film project will be a unique look at the DC Universe. Goyer, who co-wrote Batman Begins and who was attached to write and direct The Flash for Warner Bros., is currently developing Super Max, about a super maximum prison for meta-humans. The film, which Goyer is co-writing with Justin Marx, will focus on a wrongly convicted Green Arrow who is sentenced to the prison where he will be facing a number of the super criminals that he put away.

Goyer, who plans to tie the film in with either a mini-series or graphic novel if the film comes into fruition, describes the plot as, "He's only Green Arrow for the first 10 minutes of the movie, then he is arrested and his secret identity is revealed. They shave his goatee and they take his costume and send him to prison for life, and he has to escape. It’s like ‘Alcatraz,’ and he has to team up with, in some cases, some of the very same villains he is responsible for incarcerating in order to get out and clear his name. Of course, tons of people try to kill him while he’s in there. We’ve populated the prison with all sorts of B and C villains from the DC Universe. For the fans, there will be all sorts of characters the hardcore comic book junkies will know, but they’re all going to be there under their human names and no one is wearing a costume, but there will be a lot of characters with powers and things like that.”

The first live-action appearance of the Green Arrow was on this current season of Smallville on the CW Network, portrayed by Justin Hartley.

With the current Green Arrow series ending and likely relaunch and the upcoming Year One mini by Andy Diggle and Jock, could this is be the beginning of DC and Warner Bros. attempts to make the Emerald Archer brand name?
