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 Batman-News.com, we’ll be following all the latest news and rumors about the upcoming Justice League movie.
