For better or worse, the Justice League of America movie is back on track and in pre-production.
Apparently, it was the writers' strike that caused the plug to be pulled months back and not the fact that this sounds like a really, really bad idea for a film.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a Justice League movie, but to include Batman and Superman as characters and have them be played not by Christian Bale and Brandon Routh (respectively), but by new, relatively unknown actors seems a little too Catwoman with Halle Berry to me.
I mean, if you piss off the fanboys, exactly who do you expect to pay money to see your film?
That, added to the weight of introducing all of the other major characters on the team - - Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, etc. - - and whatever villains are going to fight them and it sounds like a recipe for disaster. Superhero films weighed down by too many characters never really work (i.e. Batman & Robin, Spider-Man 3, etc.)
Maybe if they went this way with the script: A little Flash / Green Lantern sex scene.
Having sex with the Flash - - a man who can vibrate all of his molecules. Yum.
In the film, Flash is going to be played by Adrian Brody and the Green Lantern will be played by the rapper Common.
What do you think? Do y'all want to see Adrian and Common going at it?
I'd much rather see Brandon Routh and Christian Bale flip fucking.
Insert DC tagline / comic book title here...
"The Dynamic Duo."
"The Brave & the Bold."
I said "insert."
P.S. Sure, this pic looks less like Kal-El and Bruce Wayne are going at it and more like Superman is being bound by Wonder Woman's magic lasso while Black Adam gives him a tongue bath, but do you really care?
Yeah, neither do I.
