UPDATE: JUSTICE LEAGUE In Trouble? An Update On The Planned 2015 DC Team-Up Movie

Latino Review's El Mayimbe just appeared as a guest on the Schmoes Know Movies podcast to drop a Justice League scoop.. Unfortunately the "scoop" was actually an update on the movie's progress, and one that fans will not be happy with! UPDATED with video.

I'm sure you remember back when we reported that Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale were possibly on board Warner Bros. planned Justice League movie. This scoop was dropped by El Mayimbe and he seemed pretty sure that the duo behind the Dark Knight trilogy would return to the DC team up flick, much to the joy of fanboys (well, most fanboys) everywhere. Well now it SEEMS that's not going to happen, as he reveals to the The Schmoes Know Movies podcast that the "current team" can't get on the same page for whatever reason, and the movie may - once again - be in trouble. He reckons that WB are in fact now looking more closely at a Man Of Steel sequel. But, he is adamant that the project isn't dead though, and insists that it will still happen..at some point. But if this is true, it doesn't bode well for WB's planned 2015 release. Obviously there is an element of "shirt's on fire..now it's out!" to all of this, and whether you buy that Nolan and/or Bale were EVER on board the movie will depend on how reliable you think El Mayimbe is. We know his sources are solid, so we're willing to believe these guys did indeed consider re-teaming for Justice League, unfortunately this means the movie may well be in jeopardy! What do you guys think? Sound off below.

So he drops the "scoop" of it happening, and then also "scoops" that it isn't. It's the same as the Momoa "scoop" for GOTG. The only source behind these stories is this guy, and then he recants them before anyone else can prove him wrong. I guess it gets him press
mattboesch8907 - 4/4/2013, 9:16 PM
well i was expecting the other shoe to drop and there it is.
Brokensteel1228 - 4/4/2013, 9:40 PM
i think DC needs to get their shit together fast, i LOVE marvel studios with a passion and am more of a Marvel Fan than DC. but i still love DC and their comics, and i want to see a TRUE batman on screen with the Justice league....WB needs to take marvel and look at what they have done right and what they need to fix
LAXtremest - 4/4/2013, 9:41 PM
I've been saying from day one this wasn't happening. And everyone was acting like it was a fact, done deal. I wish it were but until I hear it from DC or WB, bull hunky I say.
TonyChu - 4/4/2013, 9:42 PM
At this point I don't even give a [frick]. If I want my Justice Leauge then I can watch every episode on Netflix. WB can't get their shit together. At least I got Marvel Phase 2 and Phase 3.

F.F.S.
WYLEEJAY - 4/4/2013, 9:43 PM
Damn. Whats it take to get this movie made?
PsychoManiacJacky - 4/4/2013, 9:44 PM
Why are you guys still posting Latino Review scoops? This guy is a joke. I'm outta here...

funny gifs

DC/WB has been screwed from Day 1, they are not going to get their act together unless DC moves to another film company.

Smfh.
TheManFromMars - 4/4/2013, 9:44 PM
So...

What else is new?
TonyChu - 4/4/2013, 9:45 PM
And with that said best of luck to Man of Steel, it is my most anticipated and I actually have a strong feeling this movie will be good.
LAXtremest - 4/4/2013, 9:45 PM
I'd start with an immediate reboot of Green Lantern.
Ryguy88 - 4/4/2013, 9:45 PM
I'm guessing that whatever plans WB has for the Justice League wont be decided on until they see how well Man of Steel does. Until they know for sure that they have a hit (which they could possibly not) I'm sure there will be a lot of flip-flopping on their part.
LP4 - 4/4/2013, 9:46 PM
I give up on this movie -_-
Ryguy88 - 4/4/2013, 9:47 PM
Whats the rush anyway? 2015 is a long ways away, they have a full year before they need to have everything in place to start filming.
TheManFromMars - 4/4/2013, 9:50 PM
Screw JL anyway...

Gimme Superfriends!

Mars3times - 4/4/2013, 9:52 PM
God, they're never gonna get this movie together man. They have no confidence in their properties at all wich blows my mind cuz you have to live under a rock in this day to not recognize the cinematic potential of their characters. By the time they get the balls to actually make it I believe itll lose alot of mainstream hype cuz of how long they delayed it. I think WB should give DC its own division and let them take a crack at their movies them selves.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 4/4/2013, 9:54 PM
I thought it was already announced when Nolan was involved that 2015 wouldn't be the release date and they were going to wait to see what was going on with Man of Steel before they move ahead.
Coolwhip - 4/4/2013, 9:56 PM
Schmoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DCjohnny - 4/4/2013, 9:57 PM
its gonna be a decade when a justice league movie comes out...
Howlett - 4/4/2013, 9:58 PM
Warner's too busy producing STEEL 2 starring Shaq O'Neil.

CavEl - 4/4/2013, 10:00 PM
No [frick]s given, bring on Man of Steel 2.
TheManFromMars - 4/4/2013, 10:02 PM
@Jacky

Venus is full of hot chicks! If I have to blow up this planet to watch them better, I will!
Banner - 4/4/2013, 10:04 PM
I think they want a Lobo movie ahead of the Justice League, there's a rumor that they want Lobo to appear in the Justice League movie.

daywalker1623 - 4/4/2013, 10:07 PM
Because of the Avengers success a Justice League movie sounds good on paper. but unless they get some really good writers I think this project is doomed to fail no matter what.

The characters just aren't that believable on screen. Superman can do everything unless of course there's krytonite. Aquaman is worthless unless the fight in near water. Normal people aren't gonna know who martian manhunter is. Green Lantern could be cool, again with the right writers and director, same for Batman.

I think it would be cool to see a justice league movie I just worry it will turn out like the Green Lantern movie.
OrgasmicPotatoe - 4/4/2013, 10:08 PM
[frick]ing reliable ElMayimbe.

NOT.
SageMode - 4/4/2013, 10:11 PM
Lol. Smh
Banner - 4/4/2013, 10:11 PM
Armie Hamner as Aquaman!

LexHairFight - 4/4/2013, 10:12 PM
Pretty sure Coulson's 'you lack conviction' quote as a jibe at WB.
TheManFromMars - 4/4/2013, 10:15 PM
Hey, let's look at the bright side. At least we still have Justice League Dark!

It will start production as soon as Del Toro finishes his other 740 projects first.
webslinger84 - 4/4/2013, 10:15 PM
When it comes to El Mayimbe we don't believe you you need more people!!!!!
Gnyah123 - 4/4/2013, 10:18 PM
i am going to take this with some salt just in case and ima still wait til/after man of steel comes out to see how well it does n wait to see wat WB has to say then...
ATrueHero1987 - 4/4/2013, 10:19 PM
Im still waiting on a JL movie. Again, we probably won't hear anything official until MOS is released. Until then, JL on Netflix and the comics will keep me happy.
RetroFit - 4/4/2013, 10:29 PM
They're messing this up. They should do a Batman/Superman team-up movie first and introduce Flash and Wonder Woman. Then do spin off movies for Flash and Wonder Woman where you introduce other characters like Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, etc. and THEN do a full Justice League movie. Build towards it. Then go big with JL.
INFO - 4/4/2013, 10:31 PM
NO! Im so done with WB there acting lazy how bout they get there lazy asses up and get Goyer and Snyder if they cant get Nolan bring a dump truck of Money and Goyer and Snyder cold be he best options but still EL Mayimbe is a DICK for selling us B.S
GenerationX - 4/4/2013, 10:33 PM
This dude is full of shit....stop covering his "scoops". He says one thing and then turns around and says another so he has all his bases covered. He's a joke. Nobody else is reporting this but him...[frick] that fat bastard
Banner - 4/4/2013, 10:34 PM
@earz, at least he's better suited in the Aquaman role than Batman.
TheManFromMars - 4/4/2013, 10:39 PM
mrHJK - 4/4/2013, 10:40 PM
Alright, fine WB. I'll make the JL movie.
