NEW 'Justice League of America' Script In The Works

Post  non_amos on Tue Mar 29, 2011 7:36 pm

I can't believe no one has commented on this. I first saw this when I got off work this morning but just didn't feel like messing with it then so here goes:

eff Robinov is already thinking about DC Comics movies for 2013 and beyond, and he’s got “Justice League” and a reinvented Batman on his mind.

The president of the Warner Bros. motion picture group, who recently sat down for an extensive interview with The Times, discussed his long-term strategy for DC beyond movies already in the works, such as June’s “Green Lantern” and next year’s “The Dark Knight Rises” and Superman movie.

Jeff Robinov (Liz O. Baylen/Los Angeles Times)

The first priority for the man with the ultimate say on what films get made at Warner Bros.: Finally getting the Justice League, DC’s team featuring all its top characters, on the big screen in 2013. The picture had been very close to production in late 2007 and early 2008, but was killed by the Writers Guild of America strike, tax credit issues in Australia, and concerns by some at Warner about presenting a competing (and conflicting) version of Batman while director Christopher Nolan’s films were breaking box office records.

But Robinov said a new Justice League script is in the works. Also being written for Warner are scripts featuring the Flash and Wonder Woman, who could be spun off into their own movies after Justice League. Though Wonder Woman is also in the works as a television pilot for NBC produced by Warner, Robinov dismissed that as a sticking point. “Wonder Woman could be a film as well, the same way that ‘Superman Returns’ came out while ‘Smallville’ was on,” he said, referring to the 2006 film that put Brandon Routh in the cape and the television show starring Tom Welling that is now in its 10th and final season.

Robinov knows that the most bankable part of his superhero empire has been Nolan and his Gotham City films – the studio has yet to deliver a 21st century superhero blockbuster hit without Nolan in the director’s seat. Batman will continue to be a centerpiece property beyond next year’s “The Dark Knight Rises” and Nolan’s departure from the franchise. “We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman…Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”

I haven't completely checked to see if we have a separate category for JLA but since it is Superman-related I suppose here is fine unless someone wants to merge it with a thread I'm unaware of. Anyway, it seems the WB want to continue Batman beyond Nolan, even 're-inventing' him, but keeping Nolan as a producer?! It seems they still want a Wonder Woman film in spite of the proposed TV series. Certainly they'll try to include Superman in JLA as well?!

This is sorta surprising news in a way. Maybe 'the brothers' wanna compete with Marvel after all?

Justice League, the movie? Warner chief sets sights on team-up film and ‘reinventing’ Batman
March 29, 2011 | 8:10 a.m.

Ben Fritz sat down with top Warner Bros. executive Jeff Robinov for a profile piece that ran Tuesday in the Los Angeles Times business section. Fritz also brought back this Hero Complex report on the future of key DC Comics properties at the studio.

Thanks for the credit ap. Saw the news this morning. But since we didn't have a specify area to post it I didn't do anything with it. Now as for the news itself. Let's see if this goes anywhere. We in the past 3-5 yrs have been hearing this. And what we got to show for it nothing. Now personally would be great if we got a jl film. Definately would like to see it. Just the time table jeff says just doesn't make any sense. Cause first we need to get a script actually finished and ready to go, get a director on board, and then of course casting. All of this would probably take a yr yr/half to get going.

Plus it still looks like wb doesn't know what they want to do. They keep flip floping on things. Saying want todo teamup, no wait let's do solo films. Then of course nolan saying his batman is his own world, and could be for superman too. Then didn't campbell also take the same stance for gl? I think with all there issues they should just stick to solo films for now. See where gl lands first. Then of course last nolan batfilm and superman reboot. Then at least get flash or aquaman off the ground. And hold off on jl to like 2015 or so.

Then the big question is batman place. We know nolan has said he wants his story to be over after the next film. And both nolan/bale saying they likely wont do another one. Then of the talk of redoing/reinventing batman. We all known that would be the case once nolan leaves. But we definately need to at least have a little break between nolan's batman and who next steps in. That is why I rather do solo films. To by some time on batman. At least give a 3 yr break on batman. Where we get a gl 2 and maybe flash. Then do new batman. Then jl.

Only time will tell on what they end up doing.

Steve Eunuch's BJ Routh back-pedaling continues:

#12 | Steve Younis on March 29, 2011 6:45pm EST
WARNING: Sadly it's a fact of life that people resent change. While I also get frustrated at seeing people calling for Tom Welling or Brandon Routh to be cast in anything Superman related they see mentioned, attacking them for their stance is neither polite nor in line with the Member Rules of this website. Just let them have their say and move on. The majority of fans know it will never happen.

The large text is fucking HI-LARIOUS when you think about who said it.

And it was FINE when he "thought" there was going to be a sequel, and when he was posting FAKE casting-calls, but NOW he is "frustrated" that the Apologist brood keeps calling for BJ to come back?

What a sad fucking troll this asshole is....

What's funny about this is that CLARK KENT was originally supposed to have had a cameo in the upcoming GL film but that was scrapped for some reason. Did that have anything to do with duh lawsuit, or was that 'more Nolan'? If Nolan was the reason, then why would he allow Green Lantern to cameo in the Superman reboot? But yeah, if they're gonna do a JLA film, it'd be welcome. If we were talking about MARVEL, it'd be a given! With WB/DC? Who knows?!

He was indeed. But Superman was in "limbo", and the Bros. Warner didn't know what they were going to do with the character. Beyond no more BJ, that is. So if they put an actor in as Clark Kent, and then he WASN'T part of a new Superman film series, it would screw things up. Which includes using Tom Welling.

But now that it is "confirmed" that there will be a Justice League of America film, and actors are in place for Superman AND Green Lantern, a cross-over scene is a GIVEN.

On my mark, let the Brandon Routh/Tom Welling comments begin! Ready, set... GO!

Deja vu', again?! Didn't we go through this about 3 years ago?! Nolan didn't want a 6'5" Batman played by Armie Hammer while he was still doing his own thing. However, now Nolan is willing to 're-invent' Batman & allow this to happen?! And the rebooted Superman will just be finding its' way, so to speak, so do we really want 2 Supermen at the same time?! Sure, Welling might would do it & it might be like killing 2 birds with 1 stone but it could also prove confusing to the uninformed. I just don't know if that's a good idea, especially in Superman's case. Thoughts?

IF they make a JLA film, and IF Snyder's film is a hit, Cavill will be it's Superman.

Watch and see.

A "Justice League" movie, definitly up for it as long they put out DC films for each character first but re-inventing Batman for this, two words... BULL SHIT!!! Why re-invent something if it's already been establish and done so well no less?

Somehow, "retarded" doesn't quite seem quite right to describe the magnitude of a Justice League of America film existing in its own universe.

I seriously wish Chris Nolan would go fuck himself with his self-contained universes. Prick.

saw the news this morning that they want it separate/different continuity. Man that is a total mistake. This sounds like jlm all over again. Personally i rather still with solo dc films right now, and then in sequels make mentions of x person and x events of another film happening. Then do jl a few yrs from now after they at least try to get one more character on screen. I see this if they do end up going for this route it would be very damaging to the jl potential series, and the solo green lantern/superman/etc...... future series.

Marvel IS connecting the films to THE AVENGERS, even for continuity purposes. So why then can't WB/DC do the same with JUSTICE LEAGUE?! Duh apologists may whine & moan but I have seen one point that makes sense, that THAT just doesn't make ANY sense! I can see Bale not wanting to play Batman indefinitely & maybe 'pass the torch' kinda like the James Bond series but puh-leaaazzzee, don't derail the newly rebooted Superman series! Even if we got Welling in the JLA film, would that really be fair to Cavill? Especially if Snyder's film is a hit? I think NOT! I know AP pointed out that they'd probably use Cavill if the reboot is a hit & maybe so, but I just don't trust WB's decisions. Marvel at least seems to have a 'game plan' but unfortunately with WB it looks like 'ad-lib'.

The funny thing is that back in the old days of the Marvel vs. DC pissing match, the argument was always that Marvel has a genuine SHARED universe while DC had zillions of alternate realities.

It seems funny that the movie adaptations struggle from the same problems.
