Well, no surprise here—following the mind-boggling success of Marvel’s The Avengers, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have decided that maybe, just maybe, it would be cost effective to shill out their own superhero team-up film. Thus, the defunct Justice League film is now back on track.
Throughout the years, the Justice League’s members have continually shifted (including such super-folks as the Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Green Arrow, Hawkman and the Atom), the two primary members of the group have always been Batman and Superman. That’s right—despite both the closing of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and the launch of Zack Snyder’s Superman franchise with Man of Steel, we may finally be seeing a film in which the dark knight and the man of steel finally share the screen together (though chances are nil that Christian Bale would play Batman, and no word yet on whether Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill would portray this version of Superman).
Warner Bros. has upped their game a notch by hiring Ganger Squad writer Will Beall (the same man responsible for writing the Logan’s Run and Lethal Weapon reboots) to pen the Justice League script, which, unlike The Avengers, won’t have the benefit of being set up by five other superhero films.
This news raises so many questions—who will the Justice League roster be? Will it take place within in the same universe as Man of Steel (maybe) and The Dark Knight Rises (impossible)? Who will direct? Can it possibly make as much money as The Avengers without the benefit of five prequel films to generate hype? Keep coming back for answers…
