Whoa! Didn’t see this one coming. Warner Bros. has hired Kiernan and Michele Mulroney to write the script for the bigscreen team up of the Justice League of America. While I would expect the big guns to be in the movie, Warner did not disclose to Variety who would be the core team members. Please, oh please, oh please don’t do Justice League Detroit!
Now that the Batman and Superman film franchises have been revived, does the studio go after Christian Bale (“Batman Begins”) and Brandon Routh (“Superman Returns”) to star in a Justice League pic? Studio is also trying hard to bring Wonder Woman to the bigscreen.
To a large degree, casting will depend upon the story arc for the JLA feature and at what point in the superheroes’ lives the plot takes place.
Let me repeat: Please, oh please, oh please don’t do Justice League Detroit!
While I would be okay with movie based on the Giffen/Dematteis Justice League International (especially one that included Batman punching out Guy Gardner), the chances of getting Bale or Brandon Routh to sign on, or even getting Batman and Superman being central figures, seems rather slim. If you also couple the fact DC has killed off Blue Beetle, changed Booster Gold’s role in the DCU, plus the dramatic change of Captain Marvel (among others), having a great Justice League movie seems totally out of reach.
Perhaps it is just me, but while the Smallville “Justice” episode was good, I fear that is the blueprint for this movie.
Please, oh please, oh please don’t do Justice League Detroit!

So the BIG question is, “Who would you cast in a Justice League of America movie?” I’m sure there will be those who simply want The Big Seven, but if you could go Unlimited who would make that list?
