Justice League Of America: The Movie?

Just in time for New York Comic Con, there's been a major leap forward in bringing the "Ooh, wouldn't it be good if we could afford to make that" DC Comics story The Justice League Of America to the big screen. Warner Brothers, who own DC, have long made rumblings about a film of the little colourful books, which bring together the characters of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, Green Lantern and more, but you can imagine how prohibitive the budget for something like that would be.

Not any more though, apparently, as Warners have set husband and wife (we presume) writing team Kieran and Michele Mulroney the task of pulling a script together. It's quite a risky proposal, given that their highest profile gig so far is a re-write on Mr & Mrs Smith, but apparently their work of that project impressed the suits enough to secure them the gig.

Justice League has accrued a massive fan base since its inception in 1960, and the film would mark Warners' first major steps into the ensemble superhero movie arena, against 20th Century Fox's X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises. But of course, major questions surround this project, which has the potential to be bigger than both of those. Will they go after Christian Bale, Brandon Routh, Bryan Singer and / or Christopher Nolan etc.? Will they incorporate Gotham and Metropolis into a 'real' America? Will fanboys receive counselling if it sucks? Only time will tell. Tune in for the next exciting episode...
