Mad Max Director for Justice League of America
George Miller is up for the directing duties for Justice League of America, the film that combines Superheroes galore from Batman to Superman, and Flash to Aquaman, and so on.
For those of you who don't know, George Miller directed Mad Max and Happy Feet, so he's got one hell of a range of directing, but all this is secondary as the most important thing to fans is just who are the superheroes who will be in the film?
Well Latino Review through Rope of Silicon have the George Miller news, but according to a scooper over at AICN the script for the film has been completed and they know the storyline and the characters involved:
“I know that Superman, Batman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Jon Stewart all appear in the script.
Maxwell Lord, OMAC, and someone named Talia (Al Ghul?) all appear. One of the OMACs is referred to as "Beta", so the story may involve the start of the OMAC project.”
So Batman and Superman in the one film under the banner of Justice League of America? I'm really not sure about that one. I think they might find it a little hard to get Christian Bale on board for this, although word has been that he is contracted for an ensemble superhero film as Batman.
Could it really happen? There's plenty of time for Superman to appear before his sequel, and with George Miller directing it could mean that the film would go anyway, from camp to dark.
I'm not a big fan of these ensemble hero stories because if you have all the superheroes together then they need even bigger and more fantastical enemies to beat. After all a collection of near indestructible creatures means that they could easily stop about anything. Could that really work on screen?
