He was fine in Inception, good in TDKR (but the more I watch it the more a lot of my problems with the movie wouldve been solved if Blake wasnt in it(, and Brick he was good in too
But he was fantastic in 5OO Days of Summer

However, the idea of him being in Justice League is so stupid...Im really surprised that anyone is behind it

I think Warner Bros. are just either obsessed with Nolan's franchise to the point where they want to keep some form of it in tact for their JLA film; thinking that anything with Nolan's name will guarantee them success....or they're just too lazy/afraid to come up with something original regarding a new take on Batman.

Seriously the more I hear about this project the more I want it to just go away until they've gotten someone that can coherently spearhead this into the right direction.

Nothing I've heard inspires any sort of confidence in this project in fact it has done the exact opposite for me. WB/DC seem at a total loss at what to do here. They have a game plan that's fit for an obscure little league team.

As a fan I don't want to just see the Justice League for the sake of it and in turn sacrifice potential quality for something completely lackluster and undercooked just so I could say I saw a live action JL movie.

Here's hoping that it goes into a deep slumber and is awaken by a team of people who actually have an inspired plan that isn't this haphazardly prepped.

I think it's a combination all of them.

Oh i hear ya; I hope that this stays in "development hell" for a very...very..very long time.

If they can't come up with either a solid script and get a cast and crew on board for it by 2014, then I think we'll be good to the point where we don't have to worry about it being made for a 2015 release..since with nothing in 2015 and if MOS turns out to be a success..then it's most likely a guarantee that they'll have a MOS sequel instead in 2016.

AS long as we live in a world where Avengers made around 1.5 billion I dont think this is gonna slow down.

I wish it would to. Honestly I would be fine If we didnt get JL for another ten years. I would rather see the solo films anyway.

Seems to me that WB is afraid of JL failing so they're obsessed with the idea of tying it to Nolan's Batman. My hope is that MoS does really well so WB can feel a bit more confident with crafting a JL that has Cavill and not tied to the Nolanverse. This is their chance to start fresh with Batman and it's disappointing that they don't want to take it all because they're convinced that they need some ties to the Nolanverse.

That's exactly what I'm hoping for.

That would be very unfortunate.

If that's the case I can see a Green Lantern type of scenario happening again.

Pretty much yeah.

It would be but he should never, ever, ever be Batman. Bruce Wayne is Batman. Period. End of story. That's it. I'm getting sick of this ****.

It's written by Gangster Squad's Will Beall.
WB wants it out in 2015.
Henry Cavill and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are likely to star as Superman and Batman. But not definite of course.
The script is turned in with a story based on an old Darkseid/Apokalips story.
While the story is finished, the final line-up of the team is still being tinkered with.
A potential director read the script over the holidays.

Not for me. He's part of the established Nolanverse. And I'm part of the group that wants Bruce Wayne in the Justice League movie (and yes I know that there are other non-Bruce Wayne Batmans) and not John Blake.

That's a good point. I think they're waiting for Man Of Steel to make any big decisions or announcements. And it might be the best way to go. Man of Steel's success may be the thing that makes WB reboot Batman and think "OK phew..so let's do it...Henry Cavill's Superman will be the first of its universe..let's get Snyder to produce".

I just feel bad for Cavill and the MOS franchise. Not really for the movie, but i feel bad for its sequels. Because if JL is half assed, or Cavill shares the screen with actors who just aren't right for Batman, etc, then it's gonna feel sour going into Man Of Steel 2.

But unlike a lot of you here, i dont share the opinion that JGL's new Batman is bad for the movie. I'm not a "Bruce Wayne or nothing" kind of guy. If it's done right, then it's done right.

That's not even near enough to start complaining.

Yeah I think/hope MoS doing good could boost WB's confidence that JL has a chance to succeed without them having to bring someone from Nolan's Batman back. But if MoS fails then God help us all... I don't even know what they'll do.

Oh yeah; but there's still some time before this can turn very bad; if anything, I don't expect to hear anything concrete and official about this project until after the numbers for MOS comes in from the box office; that film's success will determine the course of action and the pace of where the studios will want to go with a JLA film imho.

Not really; since like kvz5 said earlier, he's from an established franchise, where there already was the canon Batman to begin with, who isn't even dead or super old yet.

Truth be told, it's been made pretty clear that in Nolan's universe, there are no people with super powers and such; and to try to change that would be bad on all sorts of levels imho.

The only confirm way that we can rest assure that we won't see JGL appear as Batman is IF he has not signed a contract yet and IF he chooses to NEVER appear on as the new batman for the franchise.

It is what it is, sadly. I just think they need to get their solo films in order first, not even to lead into JL.

Well it wouldn't stop the Superman is cursed purists from saying that the franchise is somehow cursed, that's for sure. I mean if MOS is a success and its sequel is less than stellar, due to interference from the higher ups, then it seems like Superman can never really catch a break when it comes to his sequels since SII had the same problems.

If MOS does poor or very average in the box office (which might happen if they dont promote the HELL out of this movie over the next 6 months) then JL could be thrown on the back burner. I can see them either relying on Batman reboot to get their minds off of the failure or snatching up JGL for a single spin-off. But i dont see Superman doing poor at the box office. If anything im sure the fans will rant and rave about how good it is and the buzz will convince the studio to be confident. After all it IS a first movie/reboot. They should be looking at it like a Batman Begins, not some Avengers/Dark Knight success.

I have confidence it'll do better than Begins.

You also have to put yourselves in their position. If MOS is a win....wouldn't you want to double it by connecting it to Nolans world?? Instead of relying on 1 film to carry the rest of the characters.

They know jack **** about Batman. For years they thought Batman 89' was the way to go. Then it was campy Batman when Forever caught on commercially. Since 05/08 their minds are all about Nolans gritty style and continuity. To them every other version of Bats is probably rubbish and "wont work". They'll be offering JGL the world. I wouldnt be surprised if they already tried to offer Bale every single thing he can ever ask for.

Yeah I would try to connect it to Nolan if I was in their position. Just to a character/name that people connect with Batman for years

Absolutely. It looks fantastic. It's like Nolans world gone sci-fi. I dont see why that wouldn't get butts in the seats.
