Superhero Update -

Justice League Movie Set For 2009
Miller's superhero mash-up back on track
Source: Variety


Now that the Writers’ Strike is over, and the dust has settled, it looks like Warner Bros. pet project for 2009, the Justice League Of America movie, is back on track.

The George Miller-directed project, which will unite the likes of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter in a superhero mash-up like no other, had been put on hold back in January, because of the strike.

But Warners announced today that the film’s writers, Kieran and Michele Mulroney, are back at work on the script, with a final draft due to be handed to Miller, who’s currently prepping in Australia, in a couple of weeks.

The lapse in production meant that the movie’s options on its cast had apparently expired, but it would seem that there have been no problems in getting the likes of Adam Brody (The Flash), Armie Hammer (Batman), Common (Green Lantern) and Megan Gale (Wonder Woman) back on board. They’ve been told to continue their training.

As yet, nobody has been confirmed as the new Superman. D.J. Cotrona has been heavily linked with the role, but we should get an announcement in the coming weeks, and possibly even days. (Empire has said this before, but we still can’t see why Miller and WB don’t just cast Brandon Routh and be done with it. The poor guy was great in Superman Returns and, with a sequel to that movie looking less and less likely, he deserves another shot.)

As yet, Justice League doesn’t have a date in 2009, but expect it to be one of the few films that will feel confident enough to get within a mile of James Cameron’s Avatar. It also gives Warners a more confident feel for next year, joining Watchmen and Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins on their domestic slate.

So, what do you think, readers? Are you glad that the JLA movie is finally going ahead? Or were you hopeful that the strike delay might have torpedoed the project altogether? Are Warners and DC going about this the right way, using JLA as a platform to launch spin-off movies, or should they use the Marvel model of introducing characters first, before building up to a big team-up movie, as with The Avengers?

In honor of the great Hollywood tradition of borrowing from the anals of great comic books, I give you - CHEAP TRICK !!!
