Are The Legion Of Superheroes On Their Way?
After Marvel's success with Guardians of The Galaxy this summer, it would appear that DC may be planning a space opera of their own with the Legion of Superheroes.
In the comic books The Legion of Superheroes exist in the 30th and 31st centuries and originally had ties to Superboy/Superman. As well as Superboy, the team consisted of Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl and Cosmic Boy. They were essentially a futuristic version of the Justice League, and like their earth based counterparts had a revolving door policy to its members. The Legion have also been known to travel back in time to the 21st century.
The news comes from Latino Review, who report that DC are currently whoring out the source material in the hope that a screenwriter will adapt it and sell them a pitch they cannot refuse. Consider this a rumour and nothing more for now, but it would make sense that DC would want to try to capitalize on the recent success of Guardians of The Galaxy and get their own space based team on the big screen.
