Warner Bros. Doing the Justice League Hustle

Variety sheds a little light on the production.

It looks as though some of the many questions surrounding Warner Bros.’ Justice League of America adaptation may have been answered.

An article posted at Variety yesterday outlined JLA‘s development, more or less definitively divulging several details in the process. According to the article, George Miller is aboard to direct, the studio is aiming for a pre-strike wrap, and it looks like Justice League really is getting priority over the next Superman movie, “in part because Warners is so keen on the…script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney.”

Justice League also impacts Warners’ Batman franchise, something the article admits has led to behind-the-scenes complications:

Helmer Christopher Nolan, current steward of the “Batman” franchise for the studio, would prefer that Warners delay “Justice League” until after he finishes “Batman” projects in development; Christian Bale has also let his uneasiness about “Justice League” be known.

Some recent reports have suggested that Warners might get around any casting difficulties by opting for an animated or motion-capture approach, but the article says “all indications are that the pic will be an f/x-driven live-actioner.”

Justice League of America is in the early stages of casting, and is to be expected in 2009.
