Damon Lindelof On Solving WB's "JUSTICE LEAGUE Problem"
In a massive, in-depth interview with writer Damon Lindelof, THR ask him about everything from Lost to Star Wars -- but most interesting is the response he gives when asked about the problems WB are having getting a Justice League movie off the ground..
Love or hate his stuff, Damon Lindelof gets a LOT of work. Coming off Star Trek Into Darkness with J.J. Abrams once again, many fans wondered if he'd be involved in the new Star Wars movie in some capacity, and in his interview with The Hollywood Reporter they do ask him about that -- but they also quiz him about the planned Justice League film at Warner Bros. Although he is asked outright if he'd like to take a crack at the script, Lindelof plays coy, instead detailing what he feels the major issue with getting the movie together in the first place is.
THR: If Warner Bros called and asked you to help solve their Justice League problem, would you take that call?
Lindelof: The Justice League problem? I think a lot of that depends on Man of Steel. The Justice League problem is not a problem of, who is the bad guy that Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, Superman, whoever you decide to pit them against. The problem is: What’s the tone of that movie? They’ve been struggling with launching their own tone. The tone of Green Lantern is very different from the tone of The Dark Knight. They clearly inhabit two entirely different worlds. You want to feel like someone is establishing a world where the Justice League can exist, maybe Man of Steel is that movie. If Man of Steel works, and it’s great, I think it starts to make sense where Paradise Island is in that world. Because that’s an entirely different world than the one Christopher Nolan introduced.
