Production historyEdit

David Goyer and Justin Marks penned a script for a movie starring Green Arrow originally called Super Max. On June 5, 2008, the film was retitled Green Arrow: Escape from Super Max. The reported storyline is that the hero (framed for a crime he didn't commit) must escape a high security prison filled with B and C list villains and rogue superheroes.

MTV recently posted an interview with Marks on its site. In it, he says the following:

"It's a very, very awesome prison. I majored in architecture in college, and design is how I actually started in. For 'Super Max,' designing that prison, it had to be the kind of thing that was a character in and of itself," Marks said. "We're in a world where instead of just trying to contain a guy who's really big, you're trying to contain a guy who can — in the case of Icicle — who can freeze things. What kind of a cell would a guy like that need in order to have his powers neutralized? So to escape from Super Max they have got to go through the most elaborate heist we've ever seen, involving superpowers. Because the prison itself kind of has superpowers!" He added that Black Canary won't be making an appearance in the film, and that it will include cameos from the Riddler, Lex Luthor and the Joker.[1]

Goyer has given sporadic status updates on the film, confirming it's still being worked on but not much else. With no real news on Super Max in the past year, many wondered if the film had quietly been canned. The Hollywood Reporter later confirmed the movie is still in development, but it was not among the active projects listed by the studio in their recent announcement of the formation of DC Entertainment. Interestingly, it sounds as if Warners is also planning a separate Green Arrow origin movie. Whether the origin movie will take precedence over Super Max remains to be seen.
