With the writers’ strike finally coming to its protracted conclusion, Warner Bros. has reconsidered its earlier decision to shelve its Justice League project and has decided to push through with the project in time for a 2009 screen debut.
Warner decided to cancel the project a month ago mainly because of the writers’ strike. The studio has said that they do not want to go on with the project until the writers had another run through of the script. The writers for the Justice League project are Kieran and Michele Mulroney. The cancellation has also resulted in the cast options to end and expire. The writers are now expected to be back in the studio in the next couple of weeks to run through the script once again. The actors have now been advised to continue training for their respective roles. Adam Brody has been locked in for the Flash role with Common getting the Green Lantern part. Lesser known actors will inhabit the Batman (Armie Hammer Jr.) and Wonder Woman (Megan Gale) roles.
I hope that this new Justice League project will be a quality release from Warner especially since the company plans for this movie to be the launching pad for spin-off superhero projects.
