Justice League of America Rumors: A Director and Which Heroes
I'll state right off the bat that this is a rumor far from being confirmed, but it's so exciting that I'm running it. From two different sources, Collider and Latino Review, the same rumor has appeared: the Justice League of America movie might be directed by George Miller. Back in late February we brought you the news that Warner Brothers had announced that a JLA movie was in the works, just no further details. Well the rumor mill is running at full speed and it's saying that the man who directed Mad Max and Happy Feet will be taking on the JLA.
Collider also adds more, stating that the same source says that the movie will feature Superman, Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and the Green Lantern. Aren't they a little bit late on announcing major comic book movie news given that the San Diego Comic-Con just ended? The same source states that Warner Brothers is focusing heavily on the JLA movie and that it might (don't forget this is still a rumor) come before we even see the next Superman Returns sequel from Bryan Singer.
Also part of the report is that one of the characters, which will not yet be named, may be killed in the movie. That's right, Warner Brothers is planning continued spin-offs and sequels for almost all of the JLA characters except for one. However, this film is so far away from actually starting even pre-production, that it won't be for many years until we have solid story information.
The director of Happy Feet taking on a project featuring some of the best superheroes ever to grace the pages of comic books? Is this right? I'm a bit skeptical and a bit worried. We really need someone a lot stronger, like Bryan Singer, to take on a movie as epic as this. However for now we'll continue riding high on the excitement and the world of rumors.
