Aaron Sorkin, best known for writing A Few Good Men, The Social Network, and even The Newsroom, is about to have talks with BOTH DC Studios and Marvel Studios about writing movies and/or television for either for them. This week at Cinema Con, Sorkin told Comicbook.com in an interview he was scheduled for upcoming meetings with both studios.
“I happen to have meetings coming up with both DC and Marvel,” Sorkin said. “I have to go into these meetings and tell them as respectfully as I can that I’ve never read a comic book. It’s not that I don’t like them. It’s just that I’ve never been exposed to one. So, I’m hoping that somewhere in their library is a comic book character that I’m gonna love and I’m gonna wanna go back and start reading from the first issue on.”
Sorkin is an amazing writer and definitely one of my favorites in Hollywood. I’ll see pretty much whatever he puts his hands on, so which ever studio he chooses (if he does choose one), that’s a big win for them.
The real question is, which superhero would he choose? His films and shows are so dialogue heavy, and his style is so specific, that it would be such a drastic change from what audiences are used to in our average superhero film. He’d definitely have to pick a very specific and unique character. But whoever he were to choose, I’m sure he’d pick the best one.
