WB Still Not Sure About ‘Justice League’ Film


C’mon already! We’ve been talking about Justice League ever since Marvel dropped The Avengers on us and yet Warner Bros. have failed to actually confirm a Justice League movie… until Man of Steel comes out and actually makes them money.

It sounds like a dumb idea if you ask me, because people could turn away another Superman film and still be up for a Justice League film. Perhaps Synder’s film doesn’t click with all audiences because they’ve already seen the character’s origins story?

This whole thing sounds like WB being typical ass-hats that just can’t seem to get anything right in this whole DC vs. Marvel film showdown. Marvel will continue to win because they’ve shown that they’re not afraid to go all-in on some of their more risky productions. It’s mostly paid off, with a few of their films not making as much money as hoped, but still not coming off as complete bombs.

Perhaps WB is playing this one safe because of recent comic-book movies like Green Lantern or even to some extent Jonah Hex?

Watchmen wasn’t the cash-cow they were hoping for either. Just saying.

Expect to hear confirmation on a Justice League film sometime this summer.

    As ambivalent as I am toward the bulk of the Marvel movies, I have to give them an insane amount of credit for how masterfully they built their universe and brand. They entirely deserved the success of Avengers. I suppose WB just doesn’t have deep enough pockets to shell out the 2 billion plus it would take to establish a slew of characters across several films with the monumental marketing push the whole enterprise would require. Or perhaps they just don’t have the creative will to make it happen

    A shame, because I would love to see these crazy characters together on the big screen, hopefully in something a little different tonally than the Marvel films. I fully believe there’s plenty of box office dough to go around, regardless of Man of Steel’s performance.

    Speaking of which:even if I wasn’t a die hard Snyder fan (which I am) I’d still be getting a strong sense from marketing and the gorgeous trailers that his take on Superman is going to do for the character what Nolan did for Bats. It’s my most anticipated film of the year and I can not wait for Snyder to clamp shut the mouths of all his exceedingly vocal detractors with a film that blows everyone away and makes a mint at the box office. A fella can dream can’t he?

    • Synder is doing something that no one has ever done before: he’s making me actually care (and get excited for) a Superman movie. I’ve always dug the character, but thought he was a little too straight-forward or plain for my tastes.

      Watchmen is my all-time favorite comic-book movie and I believe in Synder a lot more than Nolan when it comes to taking on such big projects. He’ll deliver, because he has to! I just don’t see much coming from a Justice League film, if it ever happens.

    I never enjoyed the Reeves Supes flicks even though I grew up watching them. I have thoroughly enjoyed every Snyder film (even the owl flick which I own on bluray to round out the collection of his work) and have no idea how him teaming with Nolan and given an enormous budget couldn’t produce a masterpiece.
