Huge huge grain of salt with this one as it seems like Latino Review doing a lot of guess work. They’ve been right in the past, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of hard evidence here.
Mike Fleming is disputing Variety’s scoop saying that Affleck’s reps say he “might take a meeting on it but that’s it.”
Warner Brothers has been quietly began getting its own all-star superhero movie back on track, with GANGSTER SQUAD writer Will Beall to pen JUSTICE LEAGUE based on the WB-controlled stable of DC Comics superheroes, Jeff Sneider reports. Warner Bros. had no comment on the top-secret hire, which — due to its timing — was more an anticipation than a reaction to the box office success of THE AVENGERS.
No so quiet anymore.
After much back-and-forthing, Warner Bros have hinted they’re looking to launch a Justice League film - and soon!
Jeff Robinov, who takes the WB Presidential oath this week, has been a big influence in the industry for some time.
He was, after all, the one who persuaded Chris Nolan to include the Batmobile in Batman Begins.
Now, according to an interview with the LA Times, he plans to see the superhero ensemble take to the screen in 2013.
Geoff Johns, speaking at New York Comic-Con, confirmed that Warner Bros and DC are not currently planning for a superhero team-up Justice League of America movie. ComicBookMovie reports that when Johns was asked about the possibility of shared-universe films á la Marvel, Johns responded with the following:
“I’m going to speak frankly: I think our characters are bigger than Marvel’s.” He said that he’d rather spend time building each character on his or her own rather than “smashing them together.”
Whose is bigger Marvel’s or DC’s? (And I’m not talking about characters.)
Eh, probably not but that didn’t stop IESB from pontificating on it
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 thetelevision 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.
