Warner Bros & DC trying to assemble the Justice League...

Justice-League-dc.jpg


George Miller tried to make 'Justice League: Mortal' a few years ago but due to the writers strike and other production complications the film was postponed. Marvel are already assembling their Avengers project, now Warner Bros are getting into the mix, they are hoping to have both Chris Nolan's Batman 3 and Superman project done by Christmas 2012, according to IESB, WB & DC are in the planning stages for the Justice League movie. So what about the other JL members?


At WonderCon convention in San Francisco a few weeks ago, Geoff Johns — the newly appointed Chief Creative Officer for DC Entertainment — told fans that he was not at liberty to discuss DC's current film plans.
"We're trying to bring everything together, but everything comes from the comics," he said, according to Coming Soon. "You'll see in the coming months how it's going to be better integrated. I'm really excited about it, but it's so early, I can't get into details yet."

As for when Johns would be able to discuss DC Entertainment's plans in greater detail, the "Blackest Night" writer cryptically teased: "We'll talk in San Diego."

Despite his tight-lipped responses, Johns offered very brief updates on "The Flash" and "Wonder Woman." He stated that "The Flash" is certainly in development, though he wouldn't discuss any potential casting or crew involvement. On the "Wonder Woman" front, Johns said that there are no updates but "everyone at DC wants to see it."


As for the eventual Justice League of America movie, well Nolan has stated in a past interview that he believes Batman cannot exist in the same world as Superman and other actual superheroes. So some back peddling needed there, so now Warner Bros/DC are trying to figure out how he can. IESB go on to say;
Our sources are telling us there is a chronology in play with these movies. Batman Begins is being specifically referred to as "Action Comics #1." Translation: Nolan's Batman is the first (and only) superhero around. During Batman Begins that is. As well as The Dark Knight that is going by "Action Comics #2."

What would be the third "issue," you ask? Martin Campbell's Green Lantern. In fact, there are still on-going talks to make references to Gotham City if not Batman himself. And although Superman himself isn't around just yet in this time-line, Clark Kent does exist in Smallville - the fictional town in Kansas, not the television series. You just know somebody is going make that assumption. At the moment, that's where the "comic series" stops.

So for you good folks saying how Batman (as played by Christian Bale) couldn't co-exist with Ryan Reynolds' Green Lantern and whatever no-name actor cast as the next Superman, WB/DC are hard at work to make it all make sense.

Yet another attempt? DC's attempts at doing JLA are laughable compared to Marvel's overall design to make The Avengers. Several stand alone films featuring Batman and Superman while Marvel are building up brilliantly by introducing all the characters hinting at The Avengers.

Jay Baruchel (The Sorcerer's Apprentice), who was to star in George Miller's cancelled 'Justice League' film, says;

"I'll just say this, if we had been able to make the movie that we had gone down [to Australia] to rehearse, if you had seen the production art I'd seen ... it would've been the coolest thing ever. It would have been the neatest vision of Batman and the coolest vision of Superman you've ever seen. It would have been dark and fairly brutal and quite gory and just $#%@-ng epic."


At SDCC last month, Geoff Johns (DC's Chief Creative Officer) avoided any direct answers regarding the possibility of reviving the project, but he did hint that the success of Green Lantern would determine any future DC franchise flicks, including Justice League.

latest news today suggests they plan to do the movie without Superman/Batman and introduce them at a later point...

Might work this way but they need to put clever easter eggs in Batman 3 and Superman Man Of Steel to get the ball rolling.

Can you really see Nolan bowing down to do this kind of thing? Also there doesn't appear to be any real game plan with DC's output unlike Marvel.

When they reveled the Origins of the JLA in issue 9 It was The Flash's idea to form the team and Bats and Sups declined to join (albeit were part of the plot) as they were far too busy but said they help out if needed

I'm really not sold on a Justice League movie.

The way it's been handled with the animated series was perfect.
I dont think this would translate well to a full blown live movie.

I just think there is too much to handle with this one.

I'm still not convinced the Avengers one will work either but at least Marvel are setting it up better IMO.

I just think the JLA should stay in animated form.

I'll be watching this with interest though...Always preferred the JLA over the Avengers

It'll be this one.

"Twilight (Of The Gods)"

The League is tricked into defending Apokolips, Darkseid's homeworld against the threat of Brainiac. The team solicits the aid of the New Gods, including Orion, Lightray, and Highfather. The resulting destruction of Brainiac's base is thought to be the end of Darkseid, until the events of the JLU episode "Alive," where he is inadvertently reconstituted by Lex Luthor.

I really enjoyed most of the Justice League episodes but was very much less keen on the Unlimited series.

I just watched that episode yesterday morning I was looking for information the reason for the cancellation on one of the JLU documentaries but did not find it, I did note how much effort and love of the product went into the cartoon.

Reason I understand was the station dropped it for a crap Fantastic Four series, the FF film was out at the time so I suppose they wanted to jump on the bandwagon.

Justice League is back in the news that Warner Bros. new studio president, Jeff Robinov, in an interview with the L.A Times, he says very briefly just they plan to release it in 2013. Seems unrealistic, they better get their skates on.

Plans to reboot Batman for Justice League film!

Update on the above post, seems it is true that for Warner president Justice League film will be top priority.

WB president Jeff Robinov on that Christopher Nolan's Batman not being able to fit into the Justice League universe;
“We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman.” To clarify, the reporter asks Robinov if he plans to reboot the Batman franchise after The Dark Knight Rises and he responds without hesitation, "I do. Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”

As for all the other JC characters like Wonder Woman, The Flash, seems like get them into the Justice League film first and then give the characters spin-off films.
