It's great that these movies feel like parts of a greater universe, that they affect each other and feed into each other. I think there's a nice progression in the past four films -- Fury fills in Tony on the Avengers Initiative, then Coulson splits off to deal with the Asgardian incursion, which brings in Selvig, who gets introduced to the Tesseract; and then we flash back to the story of how the Tesseract came into play, which is also the backstory of Captain America; and then all those threads come together when Loki invades. It's very deftly done.
Right. A JLA movie out of nowhere is absurdly reactionary.

They need a plan as opposed to retroactively sticking their existing movie characters into a movie.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

I'm not familiar with Cosmic Book News, so I don't know what their track record on claiming insider scoops is, but they're really going to town in claims of what they've supposedly learned from a WB insider. Obviously this should be taken with copious amounts of salt, but here's what they're saying:

• Our source tells us that the major developments are underway at DC Entertainment — and the Man of Steel will spearhead it all.
• The Man of Steel will be chapter #1 of a shared universe, it will all bend around that film.
• In chronological terms, the Man of Steel is the first.
• Henry Cavill will be given a new contract after Man of Steel that would probably include a pay raise along with his new terms that feature the Justice League film and subsequent sequels.
• Lobo will be the second movie after Man of Steel, and is said to take place off Earth and won't affect any of the other films.
• The Flash and Wonder Woman (Nicolas Winding Refn is expected to be directing) scripts will be spin-offs from the Justice League film that should be released summer 2014/2015, and The Flash will be rewritten to fit around events that will transpire in Justice League.
• Ryan Reynolds will be expected to reprise his role as Green Lantern, and the events that transpired in his film - although they won't be ignored in the Justice League Movie, they won't be acknowledged either. It will sort of be hints to his backstory, and the character will be more serious than in the solo film (more like how he was towards the end of the film).
• The Green Lantern sequel has a treatment but the situation is unclear. It most likely will be brought to a stage where it is near getting the green light, and will be held there until things become clearer where that franchise is headed.
• The rebooted Batman film (won't be an origin story, but will focus on a Batman who is entering his second year as a hero) will be apart of the same universe.
• The details plot wise for the Justice League Movie are unknown, but a couple comic book writers have penned the treatment that Will Beall will be scripting.
• Christopher Nolan won't be directing the Justice League Movie.
• There aren't any directors set for the Justice League Movie yet, although a shortlist has been drawn up (Matt Reeves, Jonathan Liebsman, David Yates are rumoured within WB) by the execs.
• The budget for the Justice League Movie will be around $270 million.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

^^^
I'm not familiar with Cosmic Book News either.
I would say looking at that list, with salt in hand, that at least one discrepancy occurs to me.
Man of Steel can't be a chapter one if you are also going to have Reynolds GL back AND not flatly ignore events in that film. That would make GL defacto chapter one to a viewer regardless of what is on a "master plan".

Another issue I'd address is why would Lobo be part of the JLA master plan if the film doesn't affect anything else. It's a pointless "chapter two" is it not?

Just those things alone make me think this bullet list sounds like someone throwing all DC comic news into one pile and running with it. A fangasam list if you will.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

(Responding to two posts up) Okay, now, except for the mentions of specific names like Winding Refn and Beall, all of those are things that any random fan could've guessed or imagined seeing. So color me skeptical that it's all true.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

Cosmic Movie News is like Comic Book Movies IMO. The site last year claimed they had script information from "Man of Steel". No other site managed to pick on that...to me they're both the same type of site.

Those specific names are available to random fans. Beall has been officially announced as the writer on Justice League, while Winding Refn has stated that he wants to direct Wonder Woman and that WB has said they might give him a shot at it if Logan's Run turns out well.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

That's what these type of sites do IMO. They take rumors they see off legit reports from other sites and then they compile up "reports" of their own and sort "sources" (never revealing them) and 99.1 percent of the time they're wrong. Basically they make stuff up.

The bullet point about the Green Lantern sequel makes me laugh. We've known that a treatment was written for a couple of years now. "The situation is unclear". No it isn't. LOL. The first movie bombed, and now DC Ent is trying to figure out what to do (if anything) (yes I've given up on a GL sequel now myself).

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

The good thing about a JL movie is that you'll have a character like Batman that people will pay to see supporting the more unknown DC characters.
Is a JL film greed? More like common sense. I'm glad they waited until Nolan was finished to get started on this. I wonder if they'll use any of the costumes made for Miller's planned JL film.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

All that would be cool if true (would love to see a separate Flash and WW movie, and as one of the few fans of the GL movie, it'd be cool to see Reynolds return as well). But I'm not going to hold my breath.

I really don't understand the Lobo thing though. He's such a ridiculous character, and I don't know why Warners would even want to waste their time with him.

^Well, Lobo's a parody of characters like Wolverine, isn't he? (His name is even the Spanish word for "wolf.") And Wolverine's very popular with moviegoers. I can see how, by Hollywood logic, that would lead to a Lobo movie being developed.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

The Lobo movie has a thread of its own in the BBS and seems to have snagged a director.

http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.ph...highlight=Lobo

Edit - Haven't seen this anywhere else but moviehole, which is usually reasonably reliable, suggests that WB may be considering relaunching Supergirl - but possibly as a direct to DVD series of movies. Not a lot to back this claim up though.
