JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie To Shoot Next Year, Set For 2015 Release
It seems that Warner Bros'. win against the heirs of Superman co-creator Joe Shuster means that the studio can now focus on bringing the various DC heroes together for their planned Justice League movie. Although we knew this was already in the works, apparently a loss yesterday would have meant serious problems for any further use of Superman's key mythology on-screen, thus hidering production. But now, according to The LA Times - citing "a knowledgeable person not authorized to discuss the matter publicly" - it's full speed ahead..
After Warner Bros'. win in the Superman case, the studio is now expected to "accelerate development" of their planned Justice League movie, shooting as early as next year with a 2015 release date in mind - putting it head-to-head with The Avengers 2!..
"Warner hopes to shoot the film next year and release it in the summer of 2015. The studio already has a "Justice League" script in the works. Next it needs to attach a director and then cast the lead roles."
Yes, we may very well be looking at the ultimate DC/Marvel war when both Justice League and the sequel to The Avengers come our way in 2015. The site also confirm that WB are taking a reverse approach to Marvel when bringing the various characters to the big screen, as apparently the "plan is to spin out other superheroes into their own movies following "Justice League.". Is that a smart move? Guess we'll find out. Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall is currently working on the Justice League script, so hopefully we will begin hearing some (solid) news on potential directors soon.
