Superman + Batman + um, the other guys = ?
There have been rumors swirling around for a while now about a Justice League of America movie, but they seem to be gaining steam lately. Firstshowing.net reports that the Warner Bros. film, possibly directed by George Miller (Happy Feet, Babe), will probably “feature Superman, Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and the Green Lantern” and may even be released before the next Superman installment.
Here’s what the potential stars say about this thrilling, or not so thrilling, news:
Christian Bale (Batman Begins) says he hasn’t been approached about doing the movie and continues:
It’d be better if it doesn’t tread on the toes of what we’re doing, though I feel that it would be better if it comes out after Batman 3.
Ryan Reynolds (rumored to be staring as The Flash) comments, according to MTV:
I’d love to see a full on Justice League movie done, the scope of which is just enormous. I think it’s something they can pull off.
Reynolds was originally rumored to be starring in a movie just about The Flash, but that movie seems to be on hold for now.
My thoughts? Thank god, finally! My boyfriend has been pestering me for years with complaints about the non-existance of a Green Lantern movie, and hopefully this will mollify him, at least for a little while. And if the JLA movie succeeds, maybe a Green Lantern: Revenge of Hal Jordan in the future? Maybe?
Note: Apparently, in 2003, Greg’s Previews (from Yahoo! Movies) did a survey asking fans to vote on which actor should play Green Lantern, if a movie is made about the character. Out of 17,821 responses, Orlando Bloom came out the winner with 22% of votes.
