That’s the word from the LATimes, who recently did a profile on Warner Bros. boss Jeff Robinov, who should know being, you know, the boss of Warner Bros. and all. The all-important passage from the article is below (though take note, it’s not Robinov who is saying that a “Justice League” movie is forthcoming in 2013 (at least, he isn’t quoted as saying it), but rather a summation by the article writer):
His most immediate hurdle is filling the void that will be left this summer when the multibillion-dollar “Harry Potter” series shepherded by Horn ends. Robinov is betting on DC Comics characters to take center stage starting in June with the $200-million-plus production “Green Lantern.”
He’s then aiming to release new “Batman” and “Superman” films in 2012 and “Justice League,” a teaming of DC’s top heroes, in 2013.
Maybe, maybe not. Seeing as how Warner Bros. and D.C. have become blood brothers, it would make some sense that they would finally get their act together and unleash a “Justice League” movie on the world after the aborted George Miller “Justice League: Mortal” try a few years ago. Or they could be sitting back to see how Marvel’s experiment with “The Avengers” does first, which seems likely. It is a massive investment, after all.
2013 for “Justice League”? Seems a tad optimistic to me, but we shall see.
Until then, there’s always this on DVD:
