Late last night http://www.heatvisionblog.com/ reported that Warner Brothers is stepping up their Super-Hero movie productions. They have signed Greg Berlanti, Michael Green and Marc Guggenheim to begin working on a second Green Lantern movie in addition to a movie based on The Flash. According to the article under this deal, they would then go on to write the screenplay for one of the two projects - though which one has not been determined.

Green Lantern is currently shooting in New Orleans with Martin Campbell directing and staring Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. Green Lantern  is based on the DC comic book about test Pilot Hal Jordan who becomes part of an intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. Development on a second installment this far out from a movie’s release date is rare, signaling the studio’s confidence in what it sees so far.

It appears according to the article that The Flash will be drawn from the resent relaunch of the comic franchise which has been written by Geoff Johns.

"The 'Flash' film will take inspiration from Johns’ recent work and will feature the Barry Allen incarnation of the character. (In comics lore, several names have wielded the Flash mantle, though Allen, created in 1956, remains by far the most popular.)"

Berlanti, creator of “Everwood,” recently directed the feature “Life as We Know it,” starring Katherine Heigl, and is an exec producer on ABC’s “Brothers and Sisters.” He co-created “Eli Stone” with Guggenheim, who is exec producing ABC’s upcoming superhero drama “No Ordinary Family.” Berlanti co-created "Family," which stars Michael Chiklis.  Green worked with Berlanti on “Everwood” and created NBC’s “Kings.”
