Justice League - The Movie?Written by administrator
Warner Bros. who controls the stable of DC Comics superheroes, originally tried to mount a "Justice League" movie several years ago, with George Miller directing from a script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney. That iteration was set to star Adam Brody as the Flash, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman and then-newcomer Armie Hammer as Batman. Back in January 2008, the studio cited a lack of tax breaks as the main reason it pulled the plug on the project, which also needed a rewrite that wasn't possible because of the writers' strike..
Details are sketchy of course at this point, but at least we know there's a glimmer of hope of seeing another superhero ensemble from the other side of the superhero universe on the silver screen.
Comments from various key sources have hinted of likely standalone superhero projects building to a cinematic culmination (shared universe) the way Marvel has done. It's been hinted that Christopher Nolan's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises will feature a certain open ending for Batman's big screen character. And Christian Bale has also recently suggested that he's not entirely out of the picture, if Nolan is keen. And then there's Ryan Reynold's Green Lantern, but let's not go there, yet.
We will know soon enough, and next summer's Man of Steel will probably seal whatever fate the franchise is heading.
