Warner Bros. has a whole catalog of comic book characters it can draw from for movie inspiration, so it is a bit of a surprise to find out that the company has landed the film rights to the British Dan Dare series.  It’s also been revealed that the movie studio has cast Avatar star Sam Worthington to play the title character, chief pilot of the Interplanet Space Fleet.

Seeing as how Paradox has the rights to the Buck Rogers film, Dan Dare seems to be the best competition for that film.
