Dark & Mature Justice League Script In The Works

Sure THE AVENGERS did fairly well at the box office- no big deal right? Surely there’d be no urgency for Warner Brothers to get a JUSTICE LEAGUE going right? It’s at this point I REALLY hope you’re picking up on my sarcasm, if not then you’ve probably skipped this whole sentence and have already written out some sort of threat and sent it my way. Of course a JUSTICE LEAGUE movie is an extremely attractive option over at Warner Brother’s due to the massive success of THE AVENGERS, what most people who don’t live, breath, sweat and bleed comic book news or news about movies being made from comic books is that the film has been brewing longer than you might think. To start of with, Will Beall has been working on the script for over a year- which is when he signed on to the project. This may not come as news to some, or the fact that there was ever interest in a JUSTICE LEAGUE movie, since I’m sure most knew about one that was very close to filming and the rug was pulled right from underneath the whole project.

What we know now is that Mark Millar has been quoted as saying that what he knows about the script is that it is “dark and mature.” Beall is the writer of the upcoming film, GANGSTER SQUAD and came from the TV show Castle as a writer. He also has other projects lined up such as a reboot of LOGAN’S RUN and a LETHAL WEAPON sequel. I’ve never seen Castle and none of his film credits have been released so far, so it’s hard for me to comment too much on rather or not Beall is the right man for the job, but according to Millar’s comments (that you can read here) there isn’t too much to worry about just yet.

I personally loved THE AVENGERS (REVIEW) despite not being a comic book reader, but I really love one of the JUSTICE LEAGUE’s primary members, Batman. I have loved Nolan’s Batman movies after previously loving Tim Burton’s vision of the character and I am all for just about anything that brings The Dark Knight to the big screen- though I’m trying to force BATMAN FOREVER and BATMAN & ROBIN out of my memory. I believe though that a JUSTICE LEAGUE movie might want to steer clear of THE AVENGER’s formula- mostly because I think some of the members of the DC hero squad already seem kind of goofy to me and could benefit from something a little more edgy than playful and comedic. We have yet to see how Zack Snyder’s Superman movie MAN OF STEEL will fair with audiences- if it fails it could very well make Warner Brother’s start to sweat and question if a team up could work. One this is for sure, I’ll be there- but my guess is Warner Brother’s isn’t holding their breathe waiting to see if they got my thumbs up.

     This is a good article, well written, unlike some I have seen that are mostly negative rants by people who don’t know what they are talking about. Yeah, I think the project shows A LOT of promise.
