Justice League Movie

by Laurance

Warner Bros. is looking to bring the worlds greatest crime fighting team to the silver screen. If you remember correctly, this isn’t the first time a DC crossover was attempted with the failed Superman vs. Batman movie that never saw the light of day. The JLA film will be written by Kiernan and Michele Mulroney. Here is some info Variety has to share:

Feature film is bound to include some combination of DC’s most iconic superheroes, although the studio wouldn’t confirm which ones they might be. It’s unlikely that the studio and DC Comics, a division of Warner, would opt to feature second-tier characters.

Since its inception in 1960, JLA has featured almost every major hero in the DC Comics universe, although the core team has largely remained the same: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter.

The heroes typically band together to fight alien menaces or groups of supervillains.

“The Justice League of America has been a perennial favorite for generations of fans, and we believe their appeal to film audiences will be as strong and diverse as the characters themselves,” Warner prexy of production Jeff Robinov said in announcing the hiring of the Mulroneys.

In the meantime, if you are looking for a good graphic novel involving the greatest heroes of the DC universe, check out Kingdom Come by Mark Waid and Alex Ross. It is a fantastic book!
