August 28, 2012: EXCLUSIVE: Brett Ratner Joins List of Rumored Directors for "Justice League"
by Neil Cole

Every day it seems like a new name joins the shortlist of potential directors for Warner Bros. big screen adaption of the Justice League. Following recent rumors that Ben Affleck (who has since stated he is not involved with the project) and the Wachowski siblings are up for the directors chair, now comes word that Brett Ratner may wind up behind the camera on the blockbuster production.


Sources close to the project have informed the Superman Super Site that studio exec's, who are reportedly still far from a final decision on who will helm the Justice League film, are interested in Ratner as a possible contender for the role of director.


"The studio is very pleased with the work that Brett [Ratner] has done as a producer and director on past projects," states our sources. "They are now very interested in seeing what he can do with helping finally bring this group of iconic superheroes to the big screen!"


Ratner would certainly fit the criteria of someone with experience in directing a superhero movie as he has had prior experience with "X-Men - The Last Stand" (2006) and was also set to direct "Superman Returns" before Bryan Singer eventually took over directing duties.


Currently, the only project that could interfere with Ratner landing directing duties on Justice League is the possibility of a fourth "Rush Hour" film which is rumored to start production in 2013 with a 2014 release date.


Other than the announcement that a script is currently being written by "Gangster Squad" scribe, Will Beale, Warner Bros. has yet to release any further information on the status of the Justice League film.


Until such time that an official statement is made by the studio in regard to who will be directing the film, take this latest news as strictly rumor for now.

If this happens, it's the worst news of the decade ..for anything.
 
Of course they're going to ***** about a hack director. :whatever:

Sucks that fanboys hate facts, like Ratner wanting Matthew Bomer (who went on to become a big TV star from White Collar) for Superman when everyone else wanted the lazy, go-to choice Brendan Fraser. Or that Matthew Vaughn made all the key decisions on X-Men: The Last Stand (casting new roles, working on the story with the writers, picking all the locations) then bailing weeks before filming started.

Not a huge Ratner fan but the dude is far from the hack he's labeled by braindead fanboys who can't have an opinion of their own. :whatever: indeed.
 
Im starting to think these sources are ********. But, if they settle with Ratner when you have the likes of the Wachowski's, Fleischer, Cuaron, Bird, etc to choose from? This movie deserves to fail if that's the case. What's scary is a guy like Ratner would probably jump at the chance to do it before any of the others. That **** is scary lol.

The only movie i recall liking from him was the first Rush Hour, for comedic reasons obviously. He's the opposite of what they should be looking after, it doesnt take a braindead fanboy to think that.
 
Superman: Wentworth Miller
Batman: Dominic Purcell
Wonder Woman: Mariah Carey
Green Lantern: Eddie Murphy
The Flash: Charlie Sheen on speed
Cyborg: Chris Tucker
Lex Luthor: Kelsey Grammer
Darkseid: Vinnie Jones
 
Sucks that fanboys
There's that condescending tone again.
hate facts, like Ratner wanting Matthew Bomer (who went on to become a big TV star from White Collar) for Superman when everyone else wanted the lazy, go-to choice Brendan Fraser.
Where the hell is any of this from?
Who hated that Ratner wanted Bomer?
And no one wanted Fraser as Superman.
Or that Matthew Vaughn made all the key decisions on X-Men: The Last Stand (casting new roles, working on the story with the writers, picking all the locations) then bailing weeks before filming started.
Vaughn pulled out of X3 for two reasons; family issues, and Fox being difficult. Ratner edited out good parts of Vaughn's treatment and added stupid ****. It's well documented. All throughout the X3 forums.

Not sure why you're being so *****ey, regarding how some fans have their opinions of Ratner being a hack.

So him wanting Bomer for Superman is a good choice? Right..
 
While there are plenty of his movies that I don't neccesarily hate, absolutely none of them would I say I like. So for me, it would be bad news. Regardless of any fan related noise about his past superhero movies.
 
The only movie of Ratner's that I didn't find to be a piece of crap was Red Dragon, and even that movie I'd hesitate to say was anything more than mediocre.
 
If that isn't the pot calling the kettle black, I don't know what is...
My tone has never been condescension to another poster, it always has been to the actor, director, writer, topic at hand.

For a mod, you sure behave like a troll that would be probationary banned within a day for how much you insult posters.

This. I was one of the few who enjoyed X-Men 3 despite its flaws and questionable story decisions (some of it was Vaughn's and some was Ratner's). Ratner directed the very competent Red Dragon and I enjoyed the first Rush Hour. I think Ratner can direct well -- it's all contingent on the script he's working with.

I'd be fine with him directing, personally.
 
The guy directed perhaps from my favourite music video when i was a kid, and i enjoyed the first Rush Hour back then but how is that good for Justice League where he has to handle Batman and perhaps Nolan/Snyders Superman? It's a disaster. Im just going to believe this is a joke or stupid rumors. I bet over the next 2 months there will be reports of every director across the board, and how theyve been looked into for the job.

I don't mind those movies, either, but I don't think he'd be right for JL.

Which music video?

Pretentious, though you're right about Ratner.

What's with everyone only liking the first Rush Hour? I think the second one was funny too. The third wasn't as good, though.
 
I guess I'm one of the few who thought the first Rush Hour sucked enough that I never needed to see another one.
