IESB has an interesting article about the state of the Justice League movie. It appears as though the first draft of the script has been turned in – something we’ve already reported here – and Warner Bros. is hoping the film will be a launching point for The Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and The Flash, all of which have been floundering in production hell as stand alone movies.
When do the powers-that-be want to start production on Justice League? Apparently, as soon as the first quarter of 2008, that’s right, WB sources have informed the IESB that execs behind the Justice League of America want it to be in production as early as February/March 2008 to be ready for a summer of 2009 release.
This is also around the time the second Routh Superman installment is set to begin, which brings into question if Brandon will return in the blue and red tights. According to the article, Christian Bale (Batman) and Brandon Routh (Superman) are both signed for three picture deals, and one of them could be an esemble piece.
