It looks like DC Comics and Marvel could soon get one of the best American scriptwriters on board for an upcoming superhero project. Moreover, both publishers are already in talks with him as well.
Aaron Sorkin decided to drop the news during an interview with ComicBook.com at Cinemacon. The screenwriter was questioned by Brandon Davis whether he would “ever want to write a superhero” or perhaps a comic book that he has been interested in, creating a possible opportunity to allow him to get on board.
“I happen to have meetings coming up with both DC and Marvel,” Sorkin said. “I have to go into these meetings and tell them as respectfully as I can that I’ve never read a comic book. It’s not that I don’t like them. It’s just that I’ve never been exposed to one. So, I’m hoping that somewhere in their library is a comic book character that I’m gonna love and I’m gonna wanna go back and start reading from the first issue on.”
While Sorkin was honest that he hasn’t read a comic book from DC Comics and Marvel in his lifetime, it won’t be a concern for DC and Marvel going by his successful career. Moreover, comic book fans aware of his past works can only hope that characters like The Batman, Iron Man, Man of Steel and Hulk would interest the screenwriter to get on board.
Over the years, Sorkin has produced great screenplays for movies as well TV series. He also won an Oscar for writing The Social Network starring Jesse Eisenberg.
Sorkin also wrote HBO’s critical acclaimed TV series The Newsroom. The show received two Golden Globe nominations in 2013. However, the screenwriter is still known in Hollywood for writing A Few Good Men, The West Wing and recently Steve Jobs.
