Saw this late last night. 2013? Sounds...far fetched.

It's like they are trying to rush this thing into production to keep up with Marvel...if this is true anyway and I hope it's not

If the priority was beating Marvel to the punch then we'd have gotten Justice League: Mortal two years back.

But they don't need to though. They have the highest grossing (and still most talked about and popular) movie with Dark Knight and now Nolan heavily supervising The Man of Steel and helming the third Batman movie.

They certainly don't have as many flicks as Marvel is churning em out. But...WB/DC is sitting in a strong position.

I'll kinda be glad when Nolan's involvement will be over...I hope WB doesn't have any plans for his long term involvement

It's not an examination on the DC movies strategy but more of a puff piece about Robinov. It doesn't mention Flash because it doesn't even seem aware of plans to make that. I think Flash is still being developed.

Interestingly IMDB lists The Flash and Aquaman as 2013 as well, but they weren't mentioned in the article.

Probably because the journalist didn't do that much research.

Yet he arbitrarily mentioned "Justice League." Hmmm.

As far as Flash goes, we haven't heard much movement on it in almost a year. The last thing was Bertlani (from GL) was supposedly being offered to direct it and Johns was polishing the script.. then it suddenly faded away into obscurity again.

If you wish hard enough maybe it'll come true!

Is there really a 'Justice League' film happening in 2013?

BY DREW MCWEENY - A major industry newspaper starts a crazy rumor... but is it possible it's true?


Okay, let's be logical about this.

That's the first thing I'd say regarding any rumor you hear. Think about the logic of what you're reading or, in many cases, re-reporting, and ask yourself if it makes basic sense.

For example, when The LA Times does a major profile of Jeff Robinov, who has finally been promoted to the job of president of Warner Bros. after many years of working as one of their top execs and as a very powerful agent before that, one would assume that piece has been vigorously fact-checked.

As a result, when reading that piece and looking at the passage that talks about the way Robinov wants DC superheroes to step in and replace the "Harry Potter" franchise that's wrapping up this summer, it would be easy to accept everything in those two short paragraphs as simple truth.

If you haven't read the article, let me share those paragraphs with you so we're clear what we're talking about:

His most immediate hurdle is filling the void that will be left this summer when the multibillion-dollar "Harry Potter" series shepherded by Horn ends. Robinov is betting on DC Comics characters to take center stage starting in June with the $200-million-plus production "Green Lantern."

He's then aiming to release new "Batman" and "Superman" films in 2012 and "Justice League," a teaming of DC's top heroes, in 2013.

Makes perfect sense, right?

Only… it doesn't. Not on any level. "Superman" is a legal landmine for Warner Bros., and their attention is focused right now on just making one movie with the characters that works, something they haven't been able to do in 30 years. There are all sorts of issues that are involved in which characters they can or can't use, and right now, they're just hoping they make one movie with Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder that reminds audiences of what they love about Superman in the first place. That is a huge priority for the studio.

2012 will also see the wrap-up to Nolan's "Batman" films, and again… the studio's got a lot riding on the film, and they're taking care to give Nolan what he wants and to make him happy. He's spoken before about how he doesn't really see his version of Batman existing in a world with lots of other costumed heroes, and when you look at just the trailer for "Green Lantern," it appears that Warner is using that film to establish a very different type of comic-book universe. My guess is that "Green Lantern" is the first stepping stone on a long path to a possible "Justice League" movie down the road, but when I tell you that it won't be released in 2013, that's not guesswork. That's just a simple logistical truth.

Before they can bring Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman and The Flash and more of their iconic heroes together, they are going to have to set a tone that works for all of those characters, and then they're going to have wait for Nolan to finish with Batman so they can establish a different take on the character. Without seeing what Snyder has planned for Superman, it's impossible to guess if his film would be able to branch into a crossover film, but I can confidently say that they aren't planning to make two movies with that character within a year of each other. With either of those characters, frankly. It's just not happening.

And yet, because that showed up The LA Times, we're going to see hundreds of stories today that breathlessly announce it as a done deal. And if people would just think about the likelihood of Warner rushing into something as big as "Justice League" after already having a similar film blow up in their faces not so long ago, they'd realize that it doesn't make any sense. Before you ever see a "Justice League" film, you're going to have to see a successful screen version of "The Flash" and NBC's going to have to put a bullet in that insane "Wonder Woman" TV show they're going to spend too much money on and cancel quickly, and they're going to have to establish that some of the second tier DC characters actually work as movie characters, and so far, none of that has happened.

2013? Not a chance. Count on it.

Don't worry there will be no Justice Legue film by 2013. This was confirmed by Geoff Johns a while back. DCE will be focusing on creating standalone movies (he took a little dig at Mervel too) saying DC's characters are too big to have ensemble movies before a Justice League movie. Also Christopher Nolan has said on record that The Dark Knight Rises will not cross over with Superman or Green Lantern. That being said Batman is a money making machine and I could easily see another series of films coming out with an actor around Cavil's age to play Batman, maybe even with Chris Nolan as producer as per his new deal with WB. This is also an opportune time for Superman too. Cavill is still very young and if Superman is a success I could easily see him being signed for another three picture deal. But don't get your hopes up yet, there are three films that hinge on the success of Green Lantern (Green Lantern II & III and The Flash). If Green Lantern o Superman bombs, say bye-bye to any Justice League movie.

The script was just recently turned in. They like it.

Also, if you check over at DC: The Source. The Blog for all DC writers and the fact there's not a single mention of this interview, but there is a big announcement for Action Comics #900 and the casting of Lois Lane. One has to think on the reliability of that "interview".

Robinov wants a team up movie, he has for a long time. There will be one under his watch, but it's more likely it will be Batman vs Superman.

Justice League, the movie? Warner chief sets sights on team-up film and ‘reinventing’ Batman

March 29, 2011 | 8:10 a.m.

Ben Fritz sat down with top Warner Bros. executive Jeff Robinov for a profile piece that ran Tuesday in the Los Angeles Times business section. Fritz also brought back this Hero Complex report on the future of key DC Comics properties at the studio.

Jeff Robinov is already thinking about DC Comics movies for 2013 and beyond, and he’s got “Justice League” and a reinvented Batman on his mind.

The president of the Warner Bros. motion picture group, who recently sat down for an extensive interview with The Times, discussed his long-term strategy for DC beyond movies already in the works, such as June’s “Green Lantern” and next year’s “The Dark Knight Rises” and Superman movie.


Jeff Robinov (Liz O. Baylen/Los Angeles Times)

The first priority for the man with the ultimate say on what films get made at Warner Bros.: Finally getting the Justice League, DC’s team featuring all its top characters, on the big screen in 2013. The picture had been very close to production in late 2007 and early 2008, but was killed by the Writers Guild of America strike, tax credit issues in Australia, and concerns by some at Warner about presenting a competing (and conflicting) version of Batman while director Christopher Nolan’s films were breaking box office records.

But Robinov said a new Justice League script is in the works. Also being written for Warner are scripts featuring the Flash and Wonder Woman, who could be spun off into their own movies after Justice League. Though Wonder Woman is also in the works as a television pilot for NBC produced by Warner, Robinov dismissed that as a sticking point. “Wonder Woman could be a film as well, the same way that ‘Superman Returns’ came out while ‘Smallville’ was on,” he said, referring to the 2006 film that put Brandon Routh in the cape and the television show starring Tom Welling that is now in its 10th and final season.

Robinov knows that the most bankable part of his superhero empire has been Nolan and his Gotham City films – the studio has yet to deliver a 21st century superhero blockbuster hit without Nolan in the director’s seat. Batman will continue to be a centerpiece property beyond next year’s “The Dark Knight Rises” and Nolan’s departure from the franchise. “We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman…Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”

Haha. I guessed this would happen, in multiple threads.

It's too risky continuing a billion dollar franchise without the man who made it having at least some involvement "godfathering" the project.


I'm guessing this 'reinvention' will make Nolan's Batman able to co-exist in a universe with Superman and the other 5 League members.

Great news though. DCE/WB finally has it's "Avengers" gameplan.

Well, there's certainty that The Flash and Wonder Woman is in the works. I'm happy for that.
But I got a feeling that it's too rushed to go for a JL movie by 2013.
