Confirmed, Justice League Gets Fast-Tracked with George Miller to Helm!
It's official, folks, the fate of superheroes in "Justice League of America" now lies in the hands of George Miller. Variety has confirmed that Warner Bros. Pictures is fast-tracking the project with the "Mad Max" director to make it as the studio's tentpole in 2009.
A pre-strike priority for Warner Bros., the live-action movie is reported to currently be in the initial phases of casting, which appear to be a major hard task due to its presentation of a pantheon of superheroes. Among the pack, the likely choices will be Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Aquaman.
"They're working very hard to get it to happen," one party close to the project remarked. "But there are so many characters it's complicated."
Complicated indeed, since this undoubtedly will also affect a number of other superhero projects in the pipeline. As an example, the "Superman" franchise has already taken a backseat to "Justice League" with Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale both complaining to Warner in their hopes to have the company delayed "League" until after "The Dark Knight" wraps.
