Is The Justice League Movie Script About To Be Scrapped?
Over the past few years rumors of a Justice League movie has been swarming around the internet but soon disappear faster than The Flashes erection. Warner Brothers studio’s have been playing dumb about the movie but it’s fairly obvious the success of the Avengers. Truth be told there’s a ton riding on a JLA movie and it’s questionable if Warner can even pull this off. Now we’re getting rumors that the studio willing to throw out the script and start again from scratch with just two-and-a-half years till the release date? Well the latest rumor, but is it true?
Badass Digest is reporting from its sources that initial reaction to Will Beall‘s script was surprise. Surprise that it was so terrible. Credit Beall’s inexperience (he has one season on Castle and the script for Gangster Squad as his sole credits), or the pounding studio pressure and what’s sure to be unhelpful develop process for a film this big, and you might be able to see how this project’s gone off track. Indeed, those same sources are saying that the nature of the script is what’s keeping the film from signing a director, and considering the movie in question is Justice League, that fact is doubling surprising.
At this point what can Warner do? The way I see it there’s two possible solutions. Warner can start from scratch immediately and try to keep the film on target for a 2015 release date with a possible miss; or option two: it can push ahead with the current script, hopefully get a good re-write in the next couple of months and stay the course for 2015. I guess they could always call the whole thing off until they get their ducks in a row (or more of a row), but that depends on how stubborn Warners wants to be in making sure Marvel doesn’t stay too far ahead of them. I doubt they’ll want to let The Avengers 2 come and go without having their own super-team in the bullpen. But all this may also be predicated on the success of Man of Steel. If that flick tanks, all bets are off.
