Mark Millar says new ‘Justice League’ movie is “dark and mature”

Late on Tuesday night news broke that Warner Bros. was getting serious about a Justice League movie, having hired Will Beall to write the script. Now comic book writer Mark Millar has a few details to add about the direction of the movie.

A pal of mine is good friends with the new Justice League screenwriter and said his take on the team is incredible. Very real-world and not at all what you might expect. WB has a chequered history with their superhero characters. They’re great with their boy wizards, but less consistent with their DC stable. But my chum said that this could be a thing of beauty and has been in the works for a little while now, not just an avengers knock-off. Best of luck to them. The tidbits I heard sound quite dark and mature, which isn’t what I expected. But word on Gangster Squad is great too so I feel this is in really good hands.

Fans of the universe that Christopher Nolan created will be happy to hear this news, though how “real-world” can you get with heroes like Superman and The Flash? It’ll be interesting to see how this all pans out. Stay tuned to, we’ll be following all the latest news and rumors about the upcoming Justice League movie.
