Considering the money and the talent I would think they would need to actually make a Justice League of America (JLA) movie I never thought it would happen, but stories are all over the place (especially this massive one at IESB) and it looks like it just might be made… and soon.
I will get to the IESB stuff in a second, but first we have a story from MTV in which Ryan Reynolds has told the site that “The Flash isn’t dead at all. There’s talk of it being a JLA movie, the Justice League having them all together. And then there’s other talk of doing a ‘Flash’ movie with [director] Shawn Levy.”
Levy was attached to The Flash when Warner Bros. dropped David Goyer back in February, but since that time Levy has been attached to every film under the sun and talk of The Flash pretty much died. As for the possibility the JLA film gets underway before The Flash, Reynolds tells MTV, “[It] might, yeah. I don’t really know how much I’m allowed to talk about that stuff. But I’m sure they’ll figure out something. It’s no secret that they have a JLA script and it’s a project that’s in development â€“ the contents of which, who knows. We’ll see.”
“I’d love to see a full on Justice League movie done,” Reynolds continued, “the scope of which is just enormous. I think it’s something they can pull off.”
Hmmmm, can they? There are a lot of superheroes in the JLA and a lot of potential to screw up such franchises as the latest Batman series, not to mention the up-and-down status of the sequel to Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, The Man of Steel, considering both Batman and Superman are part of the JLA along with The Flash, Wonder Woman, The Green Lantern and Aquaman.
IESB goes on the record saying that Happy Feet helmer George Miller should be confirmed as the director and casting should commence immediately… Bottom line, Justice League of America will start shooting early 2008.
Now that is the article in a very small nutshell, it is massive and if you are interested you should give it a read as it goes much deeper than I just did. To check it out click here.
