The comic industry is the Hollywood equivalent to Exile Island on Survivor.

Johns is a Teen Wolf script away from being the Loeb of a new age.

Or shall I say...Teen Larfleeze?

Have you seen that Hobbit movie? Gollum is a total ripoff of Larfleeze.

There's not a single thing a LotR movies does that a Larfleeze movie couldn't do better if Johns' writing the script.

Geoff Johns already had the opportunity to write for TV, he wrote several episodes of Smallville and was one of the writers on Blade.

Throughout all this, he stayed in comics.

Nac, you're talking shite.

The Blade job was interestingly happened at the time Johns' books had garnered a habit of being late.

Nah, he's just an ESPN spank.
He doesn't really give a shit about posting here.
He just posts here while he waits for a cushy sports blogger job with ESPN.

I think you're fooling yourself into thinking you know how the production industry works.
