Warner Bros. is moving aggressively ahead with the bigscreen adaptation of DC Comics’ “Justice League of America,” with George Miller aboard to direct.
Project, which is in the initial phases of casting, is a pre-strike priority for the studio, which needs a superhero tentpole for 2009.
Still, making all the pieces fit has been complicated by overlapping superhero projects in the pipeline, since “Justice League” features a pantheon of superheroes including Superman and Batman.
According to the article Christian Bale and Brandon Routh are unlikely to reprise their roles as Batman and Superman, respectively. However, Warners is eager to use the movie as a yardapult to blast the Flash and Wonder Woman to movie prominence.
