Green Arrow: Escape from Supermax

Screenwriter Justin Marks told MTV that while Black Canary won't be visiting Green Arrow in prison, but what they said here is that you will see Lex Luthor, the Joker and the Riddler. Marks said: "It's a very, very awesome prison. I majored in architecture in college, and design is how I actually started in. For 'Super Max,' designing that prison, it had to be the kind of thing that was a character in and of itself. We're in a world where instead of just trying to contain a guy who's really big, you're trying to contain a guy who can -- in the case of Icicle -- who can freeze things. What kind of a cell would a guy like that need in order to have his powers neutralized? So to escape from Super Max they have got to go through the most elaborate heist we've ever seen, involving superpowers. Because the prison itself kind of has superpowers!"
