Justice League hopes to follow the Avengers success

‘Justice League’ movie hopes to finally bring Batman and together on screen

If teaming up worked for Iron Man, Thor and The Hulk, it has to work for Batman, , and Wonder Woman, right?

Warner Bros. Pictures seems to think so, as Variety reported yesterday that the studio has hired a new writer to bring DC Comics' "Justice League" to the big screen. Just as "The Avengers" assembled the biggest heroes from Marvel Comics, "Justice League" would see DC's iconic characters joining forces to save the world. (DC Comics is a division of Warner Bros. Entertainment.) The fact that "The Avengers" is now the third highest-grossing film of all time with $1.3 billion worldwide seems to have reignited the fire to get the other legendary superhero team up on movie screens.

Variety's report states that Will Beall, who wrote the upcoming "Gangster Squad" (starring Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin) for Warner Bros., has been hired to take on the screenplay. Beall previously wrote for TV's "Castle," but he has also been announced as the writer for new movie versions of "Logan's Run" and "Lethal Weapon 5."

While interest in a "Justice League" movie has certainly been rekindled by the record-breaking success of "The Avengers," the project has been in the works for several years. Director George Miller ("Mad Max," "Happy Feet") was hired for the film in the fall of 2007, with production scheduled to begin the next year for a planned 2009 release.

The original plan was to have a completely fresh cast of actors take on the comic book roles, separate from any existing franchise. Unlike "The Avengers," where the original stars returned, this would have a different cast (so no Christian Bale as Batman). At the time, Armie Hammer ("The Social Network") was attached to play Batman, with D.J. Cotrona as , Adam Brody as the Flash, and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman.


The Writer's Guild strike in late 2007 put a halt to the project, however. The production went into an indefinite hiatus, with George Miller moving on to a new "Mad Max" reboot, which is scheduled to start filming soon. In the intervening years, Warner Bros. released the disappointing "Green Lantern," with "The Dark Knight Rises" coming this summer and the new film "The Man of Steel" slated for next June.

That wasn't the first time Warner Bros. tried and failed to get DC's heaviest hitters together in one movie. In the early 2000s, the studio developed "Batman Vs. ," which would have pitted the two heroes against each other (though in the end they would team up to take on Lex Luthor). Josh Hartnett was rumored for , with Colin Farrell considered for Batman. But that was eventually shelved in favor of Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins."

Currently, there isn't a director, cast or release date for "Justice League," but summer of 2014 seems like it would be the earliest we could expect to see it. There are also a host of individual DC superhero movies in development, including the Flash, Wonder Woman, and Lobo.

It's also unclear if Warner Bros. still plans to keep the "Justice League" as a separate continuity from the standalone movies, or integrate them the way Marvel built up to "The Avengers." When Joss Whedon, the director of "The Avengers" was asked if he had any advice for the people making "Justice League," he jokingly answered, "Call me." He followed it by saying that it's harder to bring DC characters to the screen than Marvel since they are "from an old, bygone era" where heroes were less flawed and grounded. And Whedon would know, since he tried to bring "Wonder Woman" to the screen in another project that stalled out several years ago.

UPDATE: Mark Millar, the writer who created the comic books the inspired the movies "Wanted" and "Kick-Ass," posted on his official website MillarWorld.tv that someone he knows is friends with screenwriter Will Beall and got a peek at the unfinished "Justice League" script. Millar reported that the new take on the movie is "Very real-world and not at all what you might expect." He said Beall began working on the script before "The Avengers" hit theaters, and that the "tidbits I heard sound quite dark and mature, which isn't what I expected."


Sounds like a pretty lightweight cast they had planned. That isn't going to get anybody excited. The Wonder Woman they had planned has an acting resume of three forgettable minor movies in nine years.

'Justice' Not for All: Who can studio get to direct DC Comics dream team?


Christopher Nolan told them no. Ben Affleck confirmed just this week that he has no interest, despite media reports to the contrary. Who can Warner Bros. Pictures get to direct “Justice League,” its “Avengers”-like team-up of DC Comics’ top-shelf superheroes?

Warner has a pretty deep bench of filmmakers it likes to work with, which is why proven hit-makers Nolan and Affleck might have been natural first choices for the company. But now two more names working within the studio for the past decade and a half have surfaced, and if they tackle the project, things might finally get rolling.

Those names? Andy and Lana Wachowski. The brother-sister team directed the “Matrix” trilogy for Warner, among the studio’s biggest hits, and have apparently garnered enough good will among the top brass for them to proceed with risky projects like “Speed Racer” and the upcoming “Cloud Atlas.” Now, if Moviehole is accurate with its report, Warner execs are interested in having the Wachowskis possibly direct what could be the crown jewel in the company’s long-delayed deployment of its wholly owned DC Comics universe beyond Batman and .

It makes sense: The Wachowskis know how to handle incredible visual imagery, mind-blowing special effects and, perhaps most importantly, character ensembles – all three of which were successful components of “The Avengers,” which is now the obvious reference for any future superhero team-up movies. The studio is said to be very pleased with “Cloud Atlas,” which also features all three of those elements, and knows that at this point it can probably trust the Wachowskis with any tentpole property thrown at them. The duo have also shown that they can go gritty and dark with “The Matrix” or bright and candy-colored with “Speed Racer” – and we think “Justice League” falls somewhere in between both.

Would they want to do it? Well, the siblings are world-class geeks, so they almost certainly have the knowledge and sensibility for a huge comic book adaptation (a script has been written by Will Beall, but the Wachowskis would almost undoubtedly work on it themselves). They’ve also produced a previous graphic novel adaptation – the underrated “V for Vendetta” – and were in the mix for a reboot at one point, too. Now that “Cloud Atlas” is done, the next project on their plate is an original sci-fi film called “Jupiter Rising” – but would they be willing to put that aside for a while and get a “Justice League” movie rolling for the studio’s hoped-for 2015 release?

It’s an exciting prospect to be sure, and the future of DC Comics on film may depend on it. More to come …

From a non-comic book reader, i have a question. My knowledge stems from the cartoons, current movies and some video games. so forgive any ignorance i display.

But in the current discussion you guys keep putting Flash on IM and Bats vs Capn America. Would a better fight not be Bats vs Iron Man? Both millionaires, both are super smart, and both are just typical humans that have some seriously cool toys.

I would much rather see that fight. But I'm curious who you more informed peeps think would win?

IronMan would kill batman in about 3 seconds, his toys are far more powerful and he is far smarter. Of course Flash would do the same to Cap in about .0000000000003 secs.

I think people are just basing it on the fact that it would be an even match with Cap and Batman.

Batman is 1-0-1 against Captain America.
