Justice League: News and Speculation
 
Seems a bit soon for this forum but post news and such

Yeah I figured they'd at least wait for a greenlight.

or get a director. I mean Ant-Man deserves one if JL is getting one already

Agreed, Ant-Man seems further along than this. But since this is here, might as well post the story:

Quote:

Warner Bros. is making some plans towards the long-awaited Justice League feature film as Variety reports that Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall has been brought aboard to provide the screenplay.

Details at this point are currently few, but the enormous success of Marvel's The Avengers no doubt helped pave the way for getting the Distinguished Competition's superhero ensemble a shot at the silver screen.

What remains to be seen is whether or not Warner's film will use any of their standalone superhero projects as jumping off points, building a cohesive cinematic universe the way that Marvel has. It's been hinted that Christopher Nolan's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises will feature a definitive ending for the current version of the big screen Batman character, though Christian Bale has recently suggested that he's not entirely against the notion of further adventures in the cape and cowl.

Next summer's Man of Steel, however, marks a more likely contender to launch an ongoing big screen universe and it's entirely possible that, despite a disappointing box office, last summer's take on Green Lantern couldn't be brought back.

The other possibility is that Warner Bros. might start from scratch, as was the plan several years ago when George Miller was attached to direct a motion-capture Justice League feature.
Hopefully they can aim higher than they were with JL: Mortal this time, because that sounded terrible.

Well Justice League is a big property so it's understandable that it got a section regardless of it being in the early stages of development.

I don't see a problem with it.

There's a hell of a lot more to discuss on Justice League than on your average hero forum BUT it's going to look silly if the movie doesn't get made :woot:

Kinda like when we had a forum section for Justice League back in 2007.

They say it's not in reaction to the Avengers, which may be true, but good luck convincing people that it doesn't look like exactly that.

Anyway, I just hope that JLA is a great film too. I've always been interested in the possibility of seeing Batman, Superman and Wonderwoman in a JLA film. I expect they'll probably be going with different interpretations of Batman and Superman, which should be interesting to see.

If WB want Superman to be a part of this, then they would like to set this in motion before 2013 ends, after that they will have to wait for the outcome of the legal rights case, as they will not have full control over Superman property (I am not really expert on this matter but this is what most people are saying.)

So, what ? They are not getting the characters who are copies of Iron-Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Nick Fury, Hawkeye, Black Widow.

so I haven't heard very impressive things about the writer

I would wait until the movie is greenlighted before getting excited yet because its not the first time Warner Bros have hired a scriptwriter and the project hasn't got off the ground.

Im really wondering how this is going to go down will it step on the toes of the Batman reboot (if there is going to be one) and MOS or will it be its own thing.

If I had to bet, I'd say they would try to tie it in with man of steel, a batman reboot, and bring in john stewart while not contradicting green lantern 2011.

Re: Justice League: News and Speculation
 
Personally I think a standalone JL is a horrible idea. Especially as WB intends to have separate iterations of these characters running simultaneously. That seems so unnecessarily messy.

I don't think this is going to work out well. This is like a big school project that spans for an entire year. Kid (A) studies his ass off for this giant project and puts in a ton of effort into getting an A and then it pays off with his final assignment stunning his teachers.

While kid (B) slacks off and procrastinates for months and the day before turns in a steaming pile.

To WB credit it has produced some great (classic) standalone movies (Batman 89/Returns, Superman, Batman Begins, TDK) but something like the Justice League would require a much more cohesive and dedicated effort that they seemingly don't even want to do. If you're not willing to go the full mile then don't even bother.

I wish them the best but this project the way it's being carried out as of now doesn't sit well with me.

Lol well if there not going for the solo movies I imagine JL being a triliogy and before the Avengers was the idea of solo movies leading up to the team movie a idea that people took seriously?

craigdbfan 06-06-2012 02:59 AM

Re: Justice League: News and Speculation
 
I took their attempt seriously. I saw that there was potential and it looks like it more than paid off.

It's not a dig. Calm down and un-bunch your knickers. :oldrazz: I'm just saying it does look reactionary despite their claim. I mean who cares if the film is good?

It might be better if they don't worry about that and just go ahead with a separate interpretation of Hal Jordan. It's not like they're likely to have Christian Bale's Batman or Henry Cavil's Superman as part of the movie, those characters will more than likely be new takes on those characters. Even with a Batman reboot, I don't see them changing their tune with MoS and suddenly try and tie that in.

I dont know how long they have been trying to get a JL movie made but I would think that even from the sucess that the X men movies had they would look at the idea again and I know the X men movies and JL are not the same but the basic idea of a team movie doing good is what im getting at so WB trying to get it going again really might not have any thing to do with with TA.

If they aren't gonna do solo films for all the major players, I wish they'd at least take their time and do a World's Finest film first, then have the sequel be the Justice League. In between those two would be the perfect time for a Wonder Woman film, imo.
