Some pretty credible rumors about the casting of the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE movie have leaked out and FirstShowing.net has all the details:
Adam Brody (In the Land of Women, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, “The O.C.”) will play The Flash / Wally West.
Rapper Common (Smokin’ Aces, American Gangster, Wa
nted) will play Green Lantern / John Stewart.
Scott Porter (Music & Lyrics, Speed Racer, TV’s “Friday Night Lights”) will play Superman / Clark Kent.
Teresa Palmer (The Grudge 2, December Boys) will play Talia Al Ghul, the daughter of Ra’s Al Ghul.
That’s Porter pictured above. Looks promising, but let’s see how he fills out those tights!
UPDATED: Porter was at Wizard Wold Texas and he is NOT playing Supes, although this quote does seem to bolster the Brody-as-Flash rumor.
Porter: I haven’t been contacted. When I tested, I tested for the role of The Flash, which I lost to Adam Brody. At this point, Superman is purely rumor and speculation as far as I’m concerned, although I do want to buy a Superman shirt today and wear it to mess with people.
Also, the movie is now in limbo due to the ongoing Writers Guild strike. The script wasn’t finished in time.
