Warner Bros May Scrap 'Justice League' Script & Look for New Writer?
For anyone who was worried that Warner Bros. eyes might have gotten to big for their money hungry stomach with Justice League, your fears seem to have been confirmed. With the pressure of a 2015 release date on the table, it sounds like the studio is having a lot of trouble figuring out how to get the DC Comics superhero ensemble off the ground. Badass Digest has heard form multiple sources that Will Beall's script for Justice League is being scrapped, and it's not clear how the studio will move forward. This comes after rumors of the hero line-up and the cosmic villain Darkseid gave us a vague idea of what to expect.
Considering we recently heard that Warner Bros. was waiting to see how Man of Steel played out before deciding to make a move on Justice League, this isn't all that surprising. After all, The Avengers might not have happened if Iron Man was a disaster. However, the fact that the studio wasn't excited enough about the project to get started even before Man of Steel hits theaters shows a complete lack of confidence.
So what are the issues? Well, the script has been called "half-baked" with studio input on the cutting and adding of various heroes creating some problems. Word on the street is the studio is going to commission a new script, and likely a completely different writer will tackle the property. We're not sure if this is going to make the proposed 2015 release, but this news is worrisome and makes it very unlikely. Your thoughts?
