From Cinemablend….. Suicide Squad 2 has taken another step forward towards becoming a reality. That’s actually welcoming news from this writer’s perspective. Kick-Ass is getting a major reboot. A new movie as violent and nasty as the first two. Although the old site InvestComics.com is a thing of the past, you’ll still find articles throughout that touched on the Captain Britain character many, many, many years ago regarding a Marvel UK character absence within their lure on the big screen. Now, there are many actors vying for the spot to play Captain Britain in a Marvel movie.

Green Lantern Corps will be coming to the big screen starring the characters Hal Jordan and John Stewart. Geoff Johns stepped down from the DC Chief Creative Officer position to helm his own production company; Mad Ghost Productions.
