Justice League solves casting issues
The Justice League of America film may have just taken an interesting turn. While we heard the rumour that Brandon Routh and Christian Bale wouldn't be taking up their respective superhero roles in the JLA film, we were still wondering how they could fit in all those big name superheroes and actors, and now that might be answered, CGI.
According to rumour, which has come from several seemingly important sources, the Justice League of America is going to be a CGI film. Now that would fix any problems with actors and budgets.
“...take this with a grain of salt, Imageworks are apparently in the running to provide services on the JLA film...the contract is for an all-cgi "photo-real" motion capture movie, much like the upcoming Beowulf.”
The rumour comes through various inside sources from IESB.
The JLA film is showing a 2010 release on IMDB which I think is far more likely if they are looking at motion capture, and it would also explain why the casting sessions seem to be right round the corner.
Any JLA fans upset that it could be CGI over real? I think perhaps it's better this way, after all getting new actors for the Superman and Batman roles would be tough enough to accept when we're seeing the other actors in their own films.
