It may finally be here, the Justice League of America movie! Just today it was announced via Variety that Kiernan and Michele Mulroney have been hired to write the script. Although Warner Brothers didn't announce any other details, including just which superheroes may be included, president of production Jeff Robinov did make a statement about taking on the prolific endeavor:
"The Justice League of America has been a perennial favorite for generations of fans, and we believe their appeal to film audiences will be as strong and diverse as the characters themselves."
I'm not sure where they pull these random first-time writers, but I guess if they're confident in them maybe we'll see a good script. Especially given that the Justice League of America is one of the comic world's biggest and most well known groups of superheroes, and fans and geeks alike have been wondering when the day will come when we'll see Superman and Batman team up in live action on the big screen.
The DC Comics JLA universe consists of the likes of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter and all the rest of DC Comics' biggest names. There are a few out there who are skeptical on whether this may actually even happen, or whether this is just an early marketing gimmick to get people a bit more interested in DC and WB's latest offerings. Only time will tell, but I will tell you I'm damn excited! Just the idea of these groups coming together and what may be capable in a movie is mind-boggling. Hopefully it all comes together, hopefully!
