Recently a lot of “will they wont they” discussion has been aired about the possibilities of a Justice League movie; ideally recruiting Christian Bale as Batman and Brandon Routh as Superman — amongst others. These rumors were originally fuelled by two Variety articles, the first revealing that Warner Bros. were looking into the movie’s development,
“The Justice League of America has been a perennial favorite for generations of fans, and we believe their appeal to film audiences will be as strong and diverse as the characters themselves.”
And the second entitled “Justice League film gets script”.
Husband-wife writing duo Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney turned in a first draft that had Warner Bros. suits actually smiling
How would this filming schedule work in-between TDK and Man of Steel? Would the correct cast be present? These are the questions being asked. The IESB had a chance to talk to Christian Bale, he stated categorically that he was not involved in the adaptation and nor had he been approached. And later Moviehole confirmed that the WB are looking for an all new cast and that the movie was “full steam ahead” with casting starting immediately. They also mentioned an assigned director, George Miller (Happy Feet meets Mad Max).
All this seemed a little confusing until the final and fitting piece of the puzzle unearthed, how this could be possible without dismaying fans and whilst aiming for an early 2008 production schedule. The IESB have a number of somewhat reliable sources stating that the JLA movie shall in fact be a CGI/Motion Capture film (e.g. similar to The Polar Express or more recently Beowulf). This still needs some closure but it all makes perfect sense. These films traditionally take slightly longer to create so we could see a late 2009, summer 2010 release.

[…] It seems like the whole crazy rumor originated through rumblings in the Justice League movie camp. […]
What About Tom Wheling? Is he not the best choice for the next Superman? Smallville has got to come to and end sometime. To those Fans of Smallville WB would be crazy not to transition Him for there to the big screen. Tom is the furture of Superman.
dana is totally right i would love to see tom welling in JLA.i would be psyched if tom showed up in JLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I suggest you reboot Superman…
make it more or even better than the “Dark Knight“
A darker Lex Luthor.
Supervillains to Fight.
I think we fans would like to see superman’s costume to get a little scratch when he fights the villains. Look at Spiderman!
I suggest you make the story not more on the comedy side.
