JLA updates

02.26.2008

After a week or so JLA-free, it's time to get back on everyone's favourite superhero movie. Be honest, you've missed those days of wild conjecture and horrible casting decisions. You've daydreamed about what it would be like if people from The OC could fly and fight crime. Well today we have an announcement that might shock you to your very core, not because it is awesome, but simply because it isn't at first sight, offensive or borderline sacrilegious. If the mighty AICN are to believed, Hugh Keays-Byrne will be playing Martian Manhunter in JUSTICE LEAGUE MORTAL. Wait, what? Oh yeah, that's right apparently the film is now called JUSTICE LEAGUE MORTAL. Or JUSTICE LEAGUE: MORTAL. Although don't get that tattooed on your chest just yet, since by my count I think that's the fourth title change thus far (on a film that hasn't even finished casting yet). Now, Hugh Keays-Byrne? I know what you're thinking, James Thoo is ridiculously good-looking. But what you also might be thinking, is who the hell is this guy? Well, he worked with JLM director George Miller on MAD MAX, where he played 'Toecutter', and after that he made a couple of appearances on TV's Farscape. He ain't exactly Christian Bale, but at least he ain't the newscaster kid from One Tree Hill.
Extra Tidbit: Apparently there is a reason for the title being 'MORTAL'. Feel free to speculate!

Justice League: NOT YET

It seems that the DCU and the WB are having real bad luck developing their films,I still think they should plan this out and take their time with it, they are rushing this project so, that if made this soon, it will only be a bad film, and the JLA deserve to be represented the right way on film.

That title sounds stupid. But I just picked up my copy of JL: New Frontier and it was all kinds of awesome why couldn't WB release that into theatres as the Justice League moive.

I don't get it

Favs was saying the other that internet buzz has a lot influence these days.

Maybe these filmmakers...don't have the internets?

MY SPECULATION

"Mortal" is just the codename they will be filming under. Anyone remember "Intimidation Game"?

No, No, No, No...

I am strongly opposed to this and I will always be opposed to the idea. If DC wants to screw up their credibility of making good films (which was saved by Batman Begins) then they should be wise enough to know that this idea is premature and unprepared. No way...

Great Scott!!!!

I am a fan of JLA, just not the idea of a movie staring people who will most likely turn it into the O.C. with superpowers. I think that Marvel is doing it the right way be astablishing their charater's solo movies first than trying an Avengers movie.
