“Kevin Smith has developed a following of sorts for his work in the nerd realm, and it looks like he would like to bring that touch to a very specific DC Comics character.” In a very recent interview with Fatman Beyond, when asked which particular Marvel or DC trait does he wants to place in a Netflix movie, he replied in the following manner…
“My DC is always The Question.” Smith explained. “I think that would make such a great series, and there must be a reason why they’re not doing it. And I know they’ve got some weird ownership issues with the character, because he came through the Charlton deal and they bought them. I don’t know if that included movie rights or something like that or TV rights, but I’ve loved that. I think The Question would be fucking great.”
During the term of his ’52 miniseries’, Vic was the person who proved to be the Gotham’s saviour and emerged out to be a true hero. After being dead from lung cancer, ” Vic trained Gotham cop Renee Montoya to take his place as The Question.” And as he revealed the question is yet to be portrayed in the various movies “For the uninitiated, Vic Sage/The Question was created by Steve Ditko in the 1960s, eventually joining the DC fold in the 1980s. Vic was an investigative journalist who was able to manipulate his appearance with the help of a mask made of artificial skin. Able to conceal his identity, Vic would go to any means necessary to investigate corruption, and leave a blank “calling card” in his wake.”
“I always bring him up.” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow producer Marc Guggenheim said in 2017. “I always feel like that character would be a great fit with the tone of Arrow. Again: it’s not our characters, it’s DC’s characters, and they’ve got other plans for The Question… I don’t know what their plans are, but clearly they do have plans – otherwise we’d be using him.”
