Mark Millar (of Millarworld and half a dozen movie deals fame) has commented on Will Beall’s Justice League script. Or at least on what he’s heard through a mutual friend…
A pal of mine is good friends with the new Justice League screenwriter [Will Beall] and said his take on the team is incredible. Very real-world and not at all what you might expect. WB has a chequered history with their superhero characters. They’re great with their boy wizards, but less consistent with their DC stable. But my chum said that this could be a thing of beauty and has been in the works for a little while now, not just an Avengers knock-off. Best of luck to them. The tidbits I heard sound quite dark and mature, which isn’t what I expected. But word on Gangster Squad is great too so I feel this is in really good hands.
The “in the works for a while” quotes jibes with a comment that Jeff Sneider, the Variety reporter who wrote the first article about Beall, made on Twitter immediately before the article appeared. He tweeted that he was:
About to reveal a secret that has been kept for nearly a year!
The “dark and mature” part also sounds like the tone of the last script with was said to have been partly based on the OMAC Project.
