Noel Clarke Wanted To Make Supergirl And/Or Black Lightning?

Yes, the guy who played Mickey on Doctor Who wanted/wants to make a Supergirl movie or a Black Lightning movie:

Last night, while his movie adulthood premiered on a UK satellite channel, its writer/director and BAFTA award-winning Noel Clarke sat down instead to watch Catwoman on ITV2. We’re not sure why, maybe it was masochism. But he twittered what he saw…
OH MY GOD! How shit is CATWOMAN?
and
RE: LOL CATWOMAN Unbelievable rubbish. I wanna slap the director. Classic making a film about a character he actually knows nothing about.
and
So DC let this idiot make and ruin catwoman but that won’t let me make BLACK LIGHTING or SUPERGIRL. Unbelievable… So angry, going to bed.

Black Lightning sounds like a blaxploitation flick from the 70's.

He was President Luthor's Secretary of Education during that disturbed administrations tenure.

I mean, if ever there was a way to rope Jean Hackman back into the franchise.

Re: Noel Clarke Wanted To Make Supergirl And/Or Black Lightning?

I wouldn't mind seeing either, particularly Black Lightning. I had hoped they would do more with Supergirl on Smallville, and possibly spin her off into her own series. But a Black Lightning movie, perhaps incorporating some elements of Black Lightning: Year One would be cool.

Yup. I'd buy that.

(Although, I kind of want Diggs to play the Black Panther, too...)

Re: Noel Clarke Wanted To Make Supergirl And/Or Black Lightning?

Well I watched the cartoon movie Superman/batman: public Enemies a couple days ago and lo an behold, Black Lighting was working in Lex Luthor's personal Honor Guard... Okies, maybe honor guard is a little strong.

Levar Burton.

So he does stuff other than pretend to be actors on Madmen while visiting the soup a touch sauced.

Burton's a good voice-actor choice, and he apparently knows the character already.
