Have at it Johns but leave some stuff for the Green Lantern movie.

Johns on Superman or Flash how could that be a bad thing? I really wonder why Studio Execs haven't bothered to hire some of these guys like Johns and Morrison who have brought us some of the best comic stories in years to write movies, come on you know they could do it and do it well.

 This is slightly off topic, but why would you pre-order through itunes?  Are they going to somehow run out of digital copies?  I'm not just being snarky here; if anyone understands why the consumer would want to pre-order off of itunes, please enlighten me.
