RUMOR: DC’s ‘The Highwaymen’ In The Works At New Line

DC HighwaymenIn the wake of yesterday’s news that Steven Spielberg is producing a feature film based on DC’s Blackhawk, a new rumor has emerged suggesting that an adaptation of The Highwaymen may also be in the works.

According to ThatHashtagShow, DC is currently looking for writers to pen the script for a feature film adaptation of the limited series written by Adam Freeman and Marc Bernardin, with New Line executives Dave Neustatder, Josh Mack, and Aria Moffly attached to overseeing the project.

The Highwaymen follows two retired members of a special breed of couriers who are forced out of retirement to deliver some extremely dangerous cargo for a dead President.

Should this turn out to be true, The Highwaymen would join the list of projects in development at Warner Bros. and New Line which includes The Batman, a Flash standalone film, The New Gods, Man of Steel 2, Nightwing, Cyborg, Gotham City Sirens, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Booster Gold, Justice League Dark, and a standalone Joker origin film separate from the shared cinematic universe, Suicide Squad 2, Birds of Prey, and Blackhawk.

Warner Bros. currently has Aquaman slated to hit theaters December 21, 2018, followed by Shazam! on April 5, 2019, and the Wonder Woman sequel on November 1, 2019.

10 Essential Superman Comics You Need To Read

Previous1 of 11

Superman DC ComicsSuperman, the quintessential superhero, seems to get a lot of guff from fans. The world’s most powerful Boy Scout can be a boring character when he’s not handled properly, but when he’s being guided by someone who truly understands him and his emotional complexities, fans should expect an amazing story.

Yeah, Superman can punch his way out of simple problems, but when the audience gets to see him think or deal with personal vulnerabilities we develop a special bond with the character. To follow someone who has to be careful about sneezing in public in case they knock someone over or can’t help his friends move furniture in case it betrays his strength can be extremely interesting.

Superman represents hope and believing in yourself. While it might seem like Superman can do anything, his stories really teach audiences that if they believe in themselves their ability to do good is unlimited. Even the world’s most powerful person has emotional problems, and to see him try to overcome his pain serves as a nice reminder that all of us are strong, no matter how low we may feel in a particular moment.
