Back in March of 2011 Warner Bros. president Jeff Robinov expressed interest in bringing DC’s heroes together on the big screen in a Justice League movie. Now, according to a report from Variety, we’ve learned that this project may be further along than we thought.
While Disney and Marvel were busy shooting “The Avengers” last year, Warner Brothers quietly began getting its own all-star superhero pic back on track, tapping “Gangster Squad” scribe Will Beall to write “Justice League,” based on the WB-controlled stable of DC Comics superheroes. Beall has yet to turn in his “Justice League” script, though he has become a favorite scribe of Warners.
You may remember that in 2007 George Miller signed on to direct a live action Justice League film. Characters were cast, costumes were designed, and story boards were completed. The film never took off though, and it was canceled about a year later. It’ll be interesting to see how things pan out this time around.
