    I know many will probably be reserved about the Wachowski's handeling the JL, but I've enjoyed their work for the most part and wouldn't be against it.

    If they do not interfere with the original script except introducing some minor ideas here and there, If they allow how the original characters are portrayed in the script, then I am alright with them.

    They are good at directing action and story.

    As long as The Wachowskis don't modify the script, I'm ecstatic with the possibilities. V for Vendetta was spectacular (one of the greatest CBMs ever made along with Watchmen, The Dark Knight Rises, Iron Man, etc). I'm down with the choice. :up:

    If Cloud Atlas is as good as I'm hoping it is, then HELL YES to the Wachowskis.

    Also, Hugo Weaving for... Martian Manhunter.

    They have avoided getting attached to movies featuring costumed superheroes in the past, but hopefully now (with all the cbm success) they think differently.

    If they do direct, I wonder if that means Plastic Man will show up somewhere in the film.

    I absolutely love the Wachowski's. Loved the entire Matrix trilogy and Speed Racer. Cloud Atlas looks beyond incredible too.

    My interest would skyrocket to unbelievable heights if they get picked.

    I feel like they have the potential to make a fantastic film. They've been attached to five big films - four of which I've seen (Matrix 1-3 and V) - two of which were amazing (Matrix and V)- one of which is one of eight films I have ever called "perfect" (The Matrix - joining the Good, the Bad and the Ugly and the Godfather Part I and II, Casablanca, The Lion King, The Empire Strikes Back and LOTR).

    The Wachowskis had also written screenplay (and story) for movie "Assassins" (1995) which was directed by Richard Donner. It was a decent action / suspence movie.

    The script they wrote is different from the one used during shooting. Even though the movie was an okay flick , the wachowski's hated the movie so much the decided to direct their own movies.


    ANyway as for the wachowskis possibly directing.
    Obviously great news for me as i'm a big fan. Despite their previous stance on CB movies ( they were offered Batman after THe Matrix and also offered SUperman a couple of times) , their stock has dropped a bit following Speed Racer. Cloud Atlas had a hard time finding funding but with the movie getitng some good recognisition , maybe the wachowskis will decide to take on Justice League as well.

    I'd be interested in what these guys could do with JL. If there's a 3rd JL film though someone need to keep an eye on them. :woot:

    I'm on the fence about this if it comes true. I'm a fan of the matrix but i haven't been really impressed by anything else they've come up with since the 1st film.

    We'll see how cloud atlas turns out.

    Yeah, I would too.

    It'd be a bonus if they are already justice league fans. That's something the crew of green lantern seemed to lack. Plus matrix is one of the best movies ever. I've seen it like 20 times, and I don't really rewatch movies.

    Well the only thing they've done that I liked was the first Matrix, but while I didn't enjoy Speed Racer, I still appreciate it on a creative/technical level. IMO, this the most interesting name mentioned in relation to this project yet.

    Please let the brothers get this. I was hoping for Ben but I honestly forgot about them. Maybe the film could be in the tone of "V for Vendetta"
