There have been rumors flying around since ComiCon this yeat that a Justice League movie was underway and looking to a 2009 release. 2009? Isn’t that when the sequel to SUPERMAN RETURNS is supposed to be released? Yes. So there was that head scratching going on. Then, Christian Bale was asked if he would be involved. His answer? No. Hmmmm…..this wasn’t looking good.
The Justice League movie is rumored to focus on Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Aquaman. How could they do this. How could they take from us a Superman sequel, leave Christian Bale out of the mix, and have a movie that will be well recieved? A new rumor that has surfaced over at Super Hero Hype that reports the new Justice League movie will be a digital/motion capture/animation thingie. You know, like Polar Express, or the new Beowulf movie that’s coming out.
I don’t know how I feel about this. It will be great if the script and story is good. I have no doubt about that, but it feels like Warner Brothers is taking a cheap way out. It seems like instead of really putting some effort forward to get a movie or two with these other characters out there to all come together in an incredible spectacle of a Super Hero movie, they are doing what studios do so often…there giving the fans something while they think that they know what we want better than we do.
Now, I’m not bashing this idea. It could be very cool. It could be one of the most awesome things we’ve ever seen. Right now, if this is true, it just seems like we’re being somewhat cheated.
