OK, well if seeing it to be believing it seems as if the flawed and troubled production of JUSTICE LEAGUE has been halted indefinitely at the moment. Some are happy, some aren't. Now before you want to whine about internet fanboys ruining it, I want to point out some things. 1. The strike means that the script is LOCKED. The WGA approved the script. 2. Contrary to popular belief you can't seriously do big re-writes on locked scripts, only minor changes and adjustments according to the agreement that's it. Since it is a locked script and WGA checks for changes, they will know if major changes are made in a strike. That's scab work and the union hates that and discourages it. 3. The comic writers doing fill in for the movies was fan speculation and probably "blogger reporter" bull****. That wasn't going to work either. Again it's a locked script. Some comic writers recently have crossed over to film and TV work. And if they hope to do that, the last thing they want is an enemy in WGA. So I just want to set the record straight, all the stuff about non union writers and all that wasn't happening and it wouldn't have worked. Sorry guys but that's the truth. 4. The EW report of 1/15 being the deadline to greenlight the movie for summer 2009 was true. Which barring some severe fool the fans smokescreen campaign means that Justice League can't start filming until after the strike is over, and can't be released until 2010 at the earliest most likely. OK those are things I wanted to clarify. But here is what I really want to discuss. Should we talk about Christian Bale returning as Batman in a possible Justice League movie. All I have to say is . . . why not? People say they can't exist in the same universe. Again I say, why not? The writers apparently have no problem at all in Justice League acknowledging events from Batman Begins . . . which whatever way you nitpick moviegoers will see as acknowleding Begins. Bale not long ago was talking about doing a crossover movie with Routh's Superman. So tell me something, if he is open to the idea of a Superman crossover film, why is it impossible for Nolan Batman to appear in Justice League? I remember a time long ago, when we as fans dreamed for someone like Bale to play Batman. Many fans demanded he was the only guy for the role. We were always happy to hear how interested he was in portraying this character, and we finally got it. So the old cliche goes, if it ain't broke WHY FIX IT?! Sorry, but you know, not every can be the next Hugh Jackman or Mel Gibson. Whoever was supposed to play Batman be it Arnie Hammer, do you really think they could've outperformed Bale? Do you really think audiences today would accept this change ONE YEAR AFTER DARK KNIGHT? That is provided Dark Knight is a huge hit? So, very simple yes or no. Do you want Christian Bale to play Batman in a future Justice League movie?
