"Sherlock Holmes" producer Dan Lin, who recently spoke about the forthcoming adaptation of Jeff Smith's "Bone," has his name attached to plenty of other comic book projects, including DC Comics' "Suicide Squad" and the ill-fated "Justice League Mortal."
In an interview with Collider, Lin provided updates on both projects, saying that the "Justice League" adaptation is currently shelved while Warner Bros. solidifies its strategy for bringing the DC Universe to the big screen.
"[They're] unveiling their DC strategy in January so you'll hear more about that and they'll speak about that in the new year," Lin said of the WB's plans. "[It] seems like they're building to Justice League instead of going with the team movie first and doing individual movies after that."
Part of the build-up to "Justice League" presumably involves "Green Lantern," though there are obviously several other important properties that could benefit from solo films, such as "Wonder Woman." On that particular front, Lin said that Warner Bros. is approaching DC's most prominent heroine with caution.
"Just as an outside observer I know they talk about it as a movie and also a TV show," said the producer. "I don't know if they've figured out which way to go or is it better to put her in a team movie first and then have her come off that."
One team movie that is in development is "Suicide Squad," the comic book adaptation that focuses on a coalition of supervillains.
"For us, that's a supervillain movie," said Lin. "It's almost Dirty Dozen set in the world of supervillains."
