Evidently, if you want to work at Warner Bros right now, it is important that your name is "Greg Berlanti."
In addition to the "Green Lantern" that's in production now and the "Green Lantern 2" and "The Flash" treatments he's working on, Berlanti is supervising the treatment for "Clash Of The Titans 2" for the studio. That's an astonishing quartet of tentpole pictures to be handed by the studio. That's like if Paramount asked JJ Abrams to pick up the slack and pump out a reboot of "Top Gun" and a new "Godfather" while also producing "Star Trek" and "Mission: Impossible" sequels. It's pushing all the chips to the middle of the table on one particular sensibility.
What's obvious is that Warner Bros. likes whatever Berlanti did on "Green Lantern." Will audiences feel the same way? We won't know until next summer. That's what makes it an interesting gamble to let him supervise all these other properties that are moving forward in the meantime.
And to be fair, he's not working alone. On "Green Lantern," he's sharing credit with Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim, and they're working with him on both "GL2" and "Flash." And on "Clash Of The Titans 2," he's not writing it, but is instead working on the treatment with Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson.
