JLA is dying

01.14.2008
I hate reporting on JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA news because let's face it, the jokes write themselves. I prefer it when I really have to squeeze a quip out of a topic. Thankfully though, this time it looks like the joke might be on George Miller and the rest of the (presumably) MTV dudes who thought casting a bunch of kids to play timeless superheroes was a doozy of an idea. Apparently Wednesday is when Warner Bros. will decide to either let the movie carry on, or to peace it out. And yeah, it will probably be the latter. Miller is stepping on the huge, awesome and surprisingly well groomed toes of Christopher Nolan's Batman films, we've heard several times that no one is happy with the script, and lest we forget, the cast is f*cking horrible. Still, we should remain on threat level delta, since if there's one thing I've learned since I started working here, it's that Hollywood and the universe will never cease to amaze everyone. So even though it looks like the project is about to get canned, don't be too surprised if it isn't.
Extra Tidbit: May Common as the Green Lantern be the only thing to come out of this debacle.

I actually wouldn't mind a JLA movie, but not at this point in time. Maybe in a few years, like after a Wonder Woman solo movie.

And Nolan proved himself to be a worthless hack with The Dark Knight.

Thank you

Please let this project die. Come back in a few years after Batman has been ruined again.

Sweeet

I too really hope this movie doesn't get made...actually I take that back, I would only want this movie to be made if they give most of the JLA their own stand alone movie, then put them all together.

I can't help but think we'll be recieving bad news tomorrow and that this movie will move forward as planned.

Please!

I hope this movie never sees the light of day. It's bad timing, bad casting and just all round a bad idea.

ABOUT FREAKIN' TIME

I've had my thumbs down on this film since the first day they were actually serious and i've been anxiously awaiting the day they were going to boot out of greenlight for now. It's just not time yet. Nolan's Batman's a masterpiece and I'm hip to the Man Of Steel if it ever gets done. Get the legends of DC out of the way, with their own crossover that Peterson had planned and THEN it'd be alright. But we barely have any of the other supes's premeier films. Why ruin it with JLA?

Ummm...

Nolan's Batman sucks... JLA young doesn't make much sense either. All the same... Eva Green as Wonder Woman; get it done.

The Road Warrior is one of my favorite films of all time

and Beyond Thunderdome was cheesy, but still completely watchable IMHO.

If a script is made more in the violent veins of Road Warrior, I say forget the penguins and bring me more Max!

Dr. George Miller

Is too boring and shit to do a movie of this size. I've seen his doco on Australian cinema. I've seen Lorenzo's Oil and Babe 2. I've wanted to die all these times.

Also I love Mad Max. The Road Warrior is my favourite Australian film. This doesn't mean I want to see another one.

Beyond Thunderdome...

Good. Let "JLA 90210" die.


Superman III. Superman IV. Batman Forever. Batman & Robin. Catwoman. Constantine.

Maybe WB is finally capable of learning from its own mistakes?

So, if JLA isn't going to do any further damage (like, say, potentially Schumachering Nolan's third Bat-Film), maybe WB can now get around to repairing some of the damage JLA'd already done? Y'know, like getting Whedon's Wonder Woman back on track? And Superman Returns II (or whatever it's called) as well?

Put this shitty idea to bed!

This film needs a solid script, confident/grounded director (not fuckin Mad Max/Happy Feet Miller!!) and a huge budget to be worth the hassle of making and it don't sound like Warners have managed to pull any of these elements together.

Back to the drawing board, or scrap the idea altogether - cannibalise something less significant!

I'll have a toast to it being canceled.

Maybe now Miller can actually start production on MAD MAX: FURY ROAD now

I'm gonna throw in my Max nomination: Jackman

Garbage

This movie has been a bad idea from the beginning and will only hurt the Superman and Batman franchises. If I was Christopher Nolan I would be very pissed!

Common

Hey Thoo, I couldn't agree more about Common. The celebrated Chicago MC easily has demomstrated he can be an asset in big films (American Gangster, Smokin' Aces), and he has the brains, the looks, and the charisma (and the age) to get a shot at being a viable actor some day. Hope his supposed casting as the Green Lantern survives development hell.
