Before we write another word, let us make this clear: there’s no movie of Black Orchid in development yet. Or if there is, DC and Warners are keeping it very quiet.
But Rachel McAdams is certainly interested in it – and given that she’s already missed out on roles in Batman Begins, Fantastic Four AND Iron Man, it seems only fair to give her a little superhero love.
She’s really gotten into the book, and would like to see a movie: “I just read this book Black Orchid and it’s a really interesting character,” she told MTV. “She’s a superhero that’s a flower. I don’t know if that would work or the audiences would be interested in that, but she was kind of cool.”
Yes, if she pushes hard enough, we could be seeing Rachel McAdams as a human/plant hybrid comic book character. Click the link above for more. Oh, and while you’re about it, go and see what Gaiman has to say about it on his blog.
