SOUNDS LIKE JLA IS OFFICIAL!

Post  non_amos on Sun Apr 27, 2014 8:58 pm

Just got this on Facebook. Appears to be real due to the Wall Street Journal link:

I'll actually post the Wall Street article since it has more info:

Warner Bros. Details Plans for ‘Justice League’ Movie (Exclusive)


  • By
  • Ben Fritz

The Justice League
First came “Man of Steel.” Next up is “Batman vs. Superman.” And then, “Justice League.”
Confirming the studio’s plans for a movie based on its iconic super-team for the first time, Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman said the studio has set plans to make a “Justice League” movie.
Like “Man of Steel” and its follow-up, which starts production next month, “Justice League” will be directed by Zack Snyder. Henry Cavill is expected to return as Superman, along with Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot, who play Batman and Wonder Woman, respectively, in 2016’s “Man of Steel” sequel tentatively titled “Batman vs. Superman.”
“It will be a further expansion of this universe,” said Mr. Silverman. “’Superman vs Batman’ will lead into ‘Justice League.’”
A script is still in development and Warner has not set a release date, though the movie is unlikely to come out before 2018. Mr. Silverman would not comment on what other heroes might join Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman in the movie. However the studio has recently been casting the role of Cyborg, a half-robotic hero who is expected to have a cameo in “Batman vs. Superman” and then appear in “Justice League.” Other DC heroes who have been in Justice League comic books include Aquaman, Flash and Green Lantern.
The plans for three superhero movies in relatively quick succession show how intent Warner is on catching up with rival Walt Disney Co.’s Marvel Studios in building a cinematic superhero universe after years lagging behind.
Although the “Dark Knight” trilogy was a hit, Warner’s other efforts such as “Green Lantern” and “Jonah Hex” have flopped. A “Justice League” movie with a young cast that was to be directed by George Miller of “Mad Max” fame nearly went into production in 2008 but was killed at the last minute.
Warner Bros. has several other movies in development unconnected to the Justice League that are based on DC superheroes and fantasy and crime titles from its Vertigo line of genre comics, said Mr. Silverman and Toby Emmerich, president of Warner’s New Line Cinema label. They include “Shazam,” “Metal Men,” “100 Bullets,” and “Fables.”
And while there are no plans yet for a “Justice League” spinoff featuring Ms. Gadot’s “Wonder Woman,” Warner executives said they are warm to the idea.
“That is our hope,” said Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing. “With the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her.”

You can find the same info now over at Singer Homo Hype but the reaction is OVERWHELMINGLY NEGATIVE! Just read their comments to the same article. 9 out of 10 people bash MAN OF STEEL as being some inferior film with very few coming forward to defend it! They're also bashing on Zack Snyder, etc., etc. Yet the comments I saw at Facebook, although I didn't read nearly as many, seemed more supportive as in AWESOME! So what am I missing here?

What you're missing is that people don't want teamups. They SAY they do but there's always some fucking retarded reason to wait until later to do it. Apparently I'm the only one who remembers it but the prospect of Avengers was originally basically everybody had a wait and see attitude about. And when Whedon was announced as the director, it was trendy to "snark" that the movie would be full of typical Whedonisms (overly snappy dialogue, the destruction/leveling of an entire city, love interests being set up and killed, the usual) and lacking action because "Whedon isn't an action guy".

The same mentality nuked Superman vs. Batman back in 2001 and Justice League: Mortal back in 2008. Looks like Warner Bros. is giving the "fans" the finger this time. And well they should.

We live in an "It's All About ME!" society. Fucking Twatter, Facebook, Instagram and it's ilk make people BELIEVE they "matter". So when it comes to popular culture properties, sports teams, whatever, they think THEIR way is the only "right" way. They'll have nothing that THEY don't approve of, and will do their best to trash what they DO get.

Zack Snyder made 'Watchmen'. You know, a film about a team of superheroes? He gave each character their screentime, and make a pretty damn fine film. But oh noooo! Some of these internet shitheads heard from someone else that he changed the ending! So it HAS to suck!! Now someone like Bryan "I Rape Underage Males" Singer has had two, about to be THREE, attempts at 'X-Men', and all we have gotten so far is "Wolverine & Professor X VS. Magneto". But that rapist has Apologists STILL defending him and the shit he makes these days.

The one area I want to hear about, creator-wise, is WHO is writing the script? I'm not a big fan of David Goyer, and he would be the only thing to make me leery.

I feel the ending Snyder had for Watchmen is much more logical and satisfying than the comic book's. I am just worried that if Marvel brings Captain America 3 out on the same date as Superman/Batman it is going to hurt the box office and the Brother's will circle the wagons and pull the plug on JLA.
