DC is ready for a Justice League movie

Posted by Shane McGlaun

Superhero flicks are insanely popular today with films like The Avengers raking in over $1 billion globally and The Dark Knight Rises poised to shatter box office records - genre or otherwise.

So it comes as little surprise that DC is reportedly moving to build anticipation amongst the masses for a long-awaited Justice League film.


 

Personally, I really don't think the public needs much pumping up for a Justice League movie. As I mentioned before, superhero movies are insanely popular right now. Of course, DC also has a number of other superhero projects in the works, including The Dark Knight Rises set to debut on July 20th; the Superman rehash Man of Steel slated for next year, and a new Arrow TV series headed to the CW.

In addition, the Justice League ensemble will be featured in an upcoming video game titled Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Warner Bros. is also planning to include the Justice League in a sequel to the video game Batman: Arkham City, a prequel set in the 1950s when Batman first encounters The Joker - leading to the creation of the Justice League.

According to various reportes, The Justice League movie is currently in the initial stages of planning, with an opening date tentatively scheduled for sometime in 2015. As of now, the script is being penned by Will Beall, who also wrote Gangster Squad. It's also worth noting that rumors have suggested Christopher Nolan may be involved with the Justice League film, but the veteran Hollywood director recently denied the rumor at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego.

"We’re finished with all we’re doing with Batman. This is the end of our take on this character," he maintained.
