The new Justice League of America débuts with a whoppingly ridiculous 54 covers, with Geoff Johns on script and David Finch handling art. Will Justice League of America #1 have you declaring “America, F yeah!” or just mumbling “America… ehh… whatever…”? Stoke your patriotic pride as Major Spoilers reviews Justice League of America #1 (this reviewer got the Indiana cover).
It was only a matter of time before Amanda Waller made her presence known in Smallville, and thanks to some creative thinking at the CW, they’ve cast Pam Grier as the tough as nails agent villain.Â Grier will make her debut during the second hour of the Justice Society episode penned by Geoff Johns, when the two-parter airs in January.
While I think Grier will do a cracking good job, one can’t help but wonder what CCH Pounder would bring to the table – oh, right, we’ve already seen her live action Amanda Waller on the SyFy Channel’s Warehouse 13.
Seems all those meetings Warner Bros. held all those months ago have finally pumped the company into taking its properties more seriously, as it is diving into the DC vaults to pull out properties to exploit into films.Â Green Lantern, Jonah Hex, Justice League, Flash, Super Max, Wonder Woman are all in production — okay, probably not Wonder Woman, but there will be another Superman and Batman film for sure, because, well, that last Superman film did so well in the theaters…Â The latest series to get the movie treatment is the government sponsored Suicide Squad.
“Suicide Squad” will feature a mix of well-known and unknown villains recruited by the government to accomplish a task deemed too dangerous for superheroes. The historically independent operators must bury their own interpersonal conflicts and agendas to form a cohesive unit to take on a singular task.
If Warner Bros. uses the Amanda Waller era Task Force X, does that mean we’ll get to see at least some of the people on this list in the film?
- Amanda Waller
- Black Orchid
- Bronze Tiger
- Captain Boomerang (Digger Harkness)
- Captain Cold
- Count Vertigo
- Doctor Light (Arthur Light)
- Duchess (Lashina)
- Karin Grace
- Major Victory (William Vickers)
- Nemesis (Tom Tresser)
- Poison Ivy
- Punch and Jewelee
- Rick Flag, Jr.
- Shade, the Changing Man
The Variety report has producer Dan Lin working this up into a franchise, so if all goes well, we could see everyone on this list eventually.
Okay Major Spoilers Legion, who do you want to see in the Suicide Squad movie, and who do you want to play those roles?Â I know, it’s a topic that ends up being a lot of fan masturbation, but don’t you all want to see Whoopie Goldberg playing Amanda Waller on the big screen?Â Come’on you know you do…
Wow!Â Just saw this come up on the Mattel Matty Collector website.Â Amanda Waller gets her own figure in 2009!.
We already revealed quite a lot at SDCC 2008 of our 2009 line up, but wanted to give everyone a little holiday treat before the New Year. Take a gander at the image below! We are not revealing where this figure fits into the line-up quite yet, but you will see her in the first half of 2009!
