Warner Bros. just won’t let the Justice League movie die. (Apparently it’s now going by just “Justice League”, and not “Justice League of America”, as predicted here many, many moons ago.) The studio has now slotted the disastrous — er, I mean, further — adventures of Batman et al for a Summer 2009 release, which seems mightly optimistic considering this movie has had more fits and starts than Britney Spears trying to exercise.
Scribes Kieran and Michele Mulroney are busy polishing up the script, which is expected back at the studio in several weeks, and the cast has been advised to keep training for their superhero roles. Director George Miller is in pre-production in Australia.
Adam Brody, cast as the Flash, is the biggest star in the superhero lineup. Rapper Common nabbed the Green Lantern role; other roles went to lesser-known thesps such as Armie Hammer Jr. (Batman) and Megan Gale (Wonder Woman).
“Justice League,” based on a DC Comic, is a huge priority for the studio and considered a launching pad for future superhero projects down the line.
You know the drill by now: director’s too damn old, cast is too damn young, story is too damn idiotic, etc etc. Do with this information as you will.
