I'm willing to bet that we'll see a Flash movie and sequels to Superman and Green Lantern before a Justice League movie.

The core problem is basic. Going for 2013 is way, way, waaaaaay too soon for a Justice League movie especially if they intend to show off a new Batman (which might be because he eats it in Dark Knight Rises; but wouldn't coming clean with these intentions this soon raise flags its BS spreading to throw people off)?

I think whatever he's saying is premature but in the works.

I think they'll bring out Green Lantern 2 and The Flash in 2013, and perhaps release plans for a new Batman THEN in 2014 or 2015 we can Justice League.

I refuse to believe that they will ever kill Batman. Ever. Not in a million years.

But that's why I agree with you. It's way too soon for a Justice League movie especially when it's blatantly obvious that WB is going forward with the Flash movie and sequels to Green Lantern and Man of Steel if they're successful. And the only way a Justice League movie will be credible is if they have most of the actors who play Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern. 2013 is too soon when 2012 has The Dark Knight Rises (assuming that Bale is willing to play the role again) and Man of Steel.

No interest in a JLA movie. I hate seeing Superman being used as Batman's ***** in the comics, and I know they would do it in a movie as well. A JLA movie could very well be the nail in the coffin for Superman as a relevant character.

As long as that's the case, I'd look forward to it.

My guess would be, if Superman is a success: 2015 (due to complications), directed by Zack Snyder (I pray), produced by Chris Nolan, and written by John, Chris and Goyer.

Hrm. This isn't even a "glass is half-empty" attitude. This is "f--k the glass, there is no water!"

Fortunately, artists have choices in this world. And if they won't Superman to be a b---h, then he simply won't be.

Luckily, the reporter was likely just looking at imdb for his info, as saw that justice league mortal as listed for 2013

Right. As someone mentioned, there could be a power struggle. Or Superman just doesn't have to be written that way.

But you're making it as if the reporter is a complete dummy when he's not. LA Times and the Hero Complex have a great relationship with WB. It's possible that JEFF ROBINOV is premature.

Just like Marvel kept on changing their dates around for the Avengers. It was suppose to come out THIS year, if you recall.

Honestly, your opinion clashes with Robinov's statements.

Robinov even mentioned they have a Flash script, but he stated JL is coming first.

The studio must have more faith in JL as a launching point for Flash.

As far as Superman, the sequels are jumping the gun at this point. This project was designed as a one off due to the lawsuit, and it sounds like the master plan now is to set up JL.

Yeah, I have always felt that the ending of the Man of Steel film should be a lead into a Justice League film IMO.

If fans and the fanboys here about a bigger threat being possibly introduced (for the Justice League to unite and do battle against) and mentioned at the end of the Superman film, there will be even more buzz for the film and more butts in seats.

They may want to start production on a JL film in 2013, but it will surely not be released in 2013 IMO.

I can understand them wanting to "reinvent" Batman. The Batman in the Nolan films isn't fantastical enough to work in a Justice League movie. However, if they produce one Batman movie where he's not stuck in the confines of Nolan's realistic world, then he could transition better into Justice League film. I think Levitt might have bigger role than Alberto Falcone. Maybe a protege who could take the reigns for Batman in a JL film, perhaps? DKR is apparently about Legacy, what if Bale's Batman has his own successor?

IMO Snyder's film will be enough to set up Superman's origins, the Kents raising him, his Kryptonian heritage and Lex Luthor.

The JL films could tackle Superman VS Lex, Brainiac and eventually Darkseid. It could be magnificent.

Don't forget that one of the main things that is thrusting the screenplay and the worries of the fans is more action. So 'Man of Steel' won't be just Lex.

Yeah, we already know Zod and the Kryptonians are involved are super villains. That goes into the "Kryptonian heritage" part.

I prefer Superman tackle Lex and Brainiac in his own movie without any outside help.

If the Avengers are gonna take on friggin' Loki and the Krulls, I'd say bring on Darkseid.

I'm just wondering what director can tackle this project.

If it was delayed a bit futher, they can get Jon Fav (who wanted the Avengers gig in the first place). There' also JJ Abrams and maybe G. Del Toro. But they all have projects right now so that's why they should delay the release date.

Well Brainiac could be in this movie as well, who knows.

Though I like the idea of Lex Luthor being a staple in the JL films. It worked so well on JLU.

I'm down for Darkseid as well, but if they want White Martians or OMACs, I wouldn't be too disappointed. I think JL will easily be a HUGE hit and guarantee JL sequels, just as Avengers sequels are being mapped out.

Yeah, with Superman, I don't know how they'll explain the Phantom Zone to keep Zod youthful without going in with too much backstory. That's why I think they may just scrap it all together and introduce Brainiac who found a way to preserve Zod. Or something like that, and use Zod as a puppet. Brainiac could be the "man behind the curtain' if you will.

My working theory is that Zod = Brainiac in this script. Zod becomes the vessel for Brainiac.

It's similar to Goyer merging Ducard and Ras into one character.

I know they aren't going to go the same old way with Zod this time around. I expect a twist like that.

Yeah, Yeah, I came with an idea similar to yours too. Maybe his true form comes out near the end, or something like that.

The entire time, Clark is questioning his heritage and how his fellow countrymen/women are traitors/evil folks but it turns out that it was all a lie.

If they get an actor like Viggo for Zod, I could see him pulling off an amazing Brainiac performance too



I hope the rumors of his involvement are true.

I hope so too. He would add a lot of weight to the movie. Serious weight. Along with Michael Shannon if he's auditioning for another role.
