Warner Bros/DC Comics Finally Getting Act Together?

UPDATE: It was just announced that Warner Bros. has created DC Entertainment, a branch devoted to utilizing the full potential of the vast range of DC characters across multiple platforms. Again, solid move. Original post follows.

It's about time. Jeff Robinov, the director of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, is implementing a plan that he's been brewing for a couple years. DC Comics now reports to him and Diane Nelson (the president of Warner Premiere, who do the direct-to-DVD animated DC films).

Robinov has apparently "called back their high profile DC titles in development like The Flash and Wonder Woman." After the recent hiring of Marv Wolfman, Geoff Johns, and Grant Morrison, Warner Bros./DC is finally taking steps in the right direction in competing with Marvel. Now, who wants to see Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern AND The Flash? Eh? Eh? Anybody else?

A solid NO.

Although, NPH as Barry Allen is still my vote. As well as Bradley Cooper as GL when they fire Reynolds for his on-set Cleavland Steamer on chloroformed Geoff Johns.

Tsk tsk. The stars fall SO hard...

All I know is that when it happens, and it will, I'll be sure to tell everyone I read it here first.
