DC TV – What Might Have Been

Back in the mid-90s, DC comics had a single page feature touting upcoming series or bits of news or random, silly items.

I came across this one in Guy Gardner: Warrior #19, cover dated April 1994 which shows a TV listing featuring various titles along with some interesting casting choices:


There’s a few things there that caught my eye, not least the Batman Drama Anthology where Brad Pitt, Cary Elwes and Peter Horton all play Batman!

However, I thought these few worth highlighting:


Keifer Sutherland as Aquaman (at least in the mid-90s) sounds like great casting!


Similarly, mid-90s Christian Slater as Guy Gardner? Perfect!

But it was coming across the mention of Bill Paxton so soon after his death that really prompted this little post:

So yeah, I can see it.

How things might have been, eh?

Twenty four years and counting for Lobo: The Movie to even start production – that is one heck of a stint in development hell.
