Geoff Johns Says Garth Ennis and John McCrea’s Hitman is Being Talked About for Television
This past weekend was the DC in D.C. event which had DC Entertainment bringing actors, writers, and artists to Washington, DC for signings and panels. Kicking off the day was the “Art of the Matter” panel which featured Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, Salim Akil, Cress Williams, Candice Patton, and Danielle Panabaker.
During the question and answer portion, one individual stated that Hitman was his favorite character and wondered if the character of Tommy Monaghan was coming to television?
Johns said he’s been asked this before and he gave a vague answer but here he gave something a little different, saying it is something “they’re talking about.”
