The Justice League movie rumours have surfaced again. Variety is reporting that WB’s latest wunderkind, writer Will Beall, has been tapped to provide a treatment for a League movie. That’s the sum total of the news on this one: Will Beall, Justice League script, not yet written. The massive success of Marvel’s Avengers is obviously a driver for this, but the success of the New 52′s efforts may also play into it.
Back in 2011, Jeff Robinov (WB President) confirmed that WB were still interested in the property, but that they were starting from scratch with a new script. Their choice of Beall would seem to be a no brainer as he wrote the soon to be released Gangster Squad, a retelling of the 1940s battle between the LA police with their gangsters — a group of colour good-guys fighting crime sounds like a fit the League.
A few years ago there was a lot of talk about an earlier Justice League movie, but that vanished at the eleventh hour due to a writer’s strike and the loss of Australian tax breaks. That film even got as far as casting actors, getting their stunt training going, and getting them fitted with costumes. (I’ve got a load of notes on it I should write-up sometime.)
