There are some plot details for the Justice League movie that have been making their way around the internet that originated at Live for Films. I have to say that I think the details are complete bullshit. The thing reads like silly fan fiction that packs everything from the DC universe into one movie. If this are real, there's no way they are going to be able to effectively pull it off. I seriously doubt this is the real deal so I wouldn't worry.
The last we heard about Justice League was that Warner Bros. wasn't going to use the script written by Will Beall and that if Man of Steel does well, the studio will green light the project and bring on Zack Snyder to direct. The source of the plot details, who goes by the named of “Good Samaritan”, says that the script is »

Chalk this one up to the rumor mill, but if true, could be pretty damn awesome. An unconfirmed source has hit the interwebs with news of Warner Bros. new Justice League script (by two unannounced up-and-coming screenwriters) that has replaced the tossed Will Beall version. The description below goes into great detail about how WB plans to implement Henry Cavill's Superman and an "established" Batman, as well as utilizing elements established in Green Lantern (namely »

After Marvel set the world on fire with The Avengers last summer, many movie fans assumed that Warner Bros. would soon follow suit and finally get Justice League into production. That seemed to be the case in May 2012 when it was announced that Will Beall had signed on to pen the script for the ultimate DC superhero team-up with the intention of getting it in theaters by 2015.
Almost a year later, absolutely no progress has been made on Justice League. It was recently revealed that the studio had trashed Beall’s screenplay and Warner Bros. was content to move forward on developing a solo Man of Steel trilogy before working on a Batman reboot or thinking about Justice League again. Comic book fans all over the Internet immediately flocked to their keyboards to criticize WB for not having a plan and endlessly bitching about what the studio should do to »

Chicago – Ruben Fleischer’s “Gangster Squad” is a steak devoid of juice. It has all the trappings of an effortlessly enjoyable genre exercise, but it doesn’t bring a single fresh idea to the table. It goes through the usual motions of a standard gangster picture while giving each overqualified member of its ensemble exactly one note to play. And they’re all exceedingly familiar notes, conveying a tune so familiar even Sam would refuse to play it again.
Josh Brolin plays a square-jawed officer with a perpetually concerned wife. Ryan Gosling plays a suave ladykiller (god what a stretch) who falls for a femme fatale (Emma Stone, looking like a kid playing dress-up). Nick Nolte wheezes and grunts. Giovanni Ribisi wears nerdy glasses, signaling that his character’s fade-out will arrive long before the final one. Anthony Mackie and Michael Peña supply different shades of skin color and little else. »

Although it has the glamour of classic Hollywood and the gritty violence of the genre, Gangster Squad feels a tad too formulaic to ever fully stand on its own. The film features solid performances from its incredible ensemble cast, but seems to borrow a tad too much from past gangster films . most notably Brian De Palma's The Untouchables. Loosely based on true events, Gangster Squad was directed by Ruben Fleischer with a screenplay by Will Beall, the film features a top notch cast of Hollywood talent including Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Sullivan Stapleton, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Anthony Mackie, Robert Patrick, Michael Peña, and Giovanni Ribisi. Set in 1949.s Los Angeles, the film opens with »

Gangster Squad, the period cop drama, has just hit store shelves on DVD and Blu-Ray. We here at Cinelinx got our hands on the latest release in order to help you guys decide whether or not this film is worth adding to your home entertainment collection.
I caught Gangster Squad when it was in the theaters, and I have to say...I wasn’t a fan. It’s an attempt to bring back the mobster laden crime dramas of old, but despite some great talent behind it, the film comes up short with a generic, cliche driven story. Even so, when Warner Bros asked me to check out the film on blu-ray, I felt like I should give it another chance. Did my opinion of the film change? Not so much.

Ah, we've not had a Justice League rumour for a little while, not least one about a potential director for the film. So grab yourself your favourite type of biscuit, and see what you make of this.
Warner Bros is banking heavily on Zack Snyder this summer, given that he's directed the incoming Superman reboot, Man Of Steel. When he does the interview circuit for the film, which he's presumably started on, he can expect to be asked lots of times too whether he's going to direct Man Of Steel 2. But there might be another film to throw into the mix too, and that might just be Justice League.
The source of the current rumour? Gangster Squad director Ruben Flesicher. He himself is doing interviews to promote the »
According to Screen Crush, director Ruben Fleischer may have let the cat out of the bag by revealing that Zack Snyder is directing the Justice League film. Rumours surrounding the Man of Steel helmer and whether he would direct Warner Bros.’ troubled project or not have been floating around for a while but this one seems to have some legitimacy to it, and here’s why.
Firstly, Fleischer was actually in the running to direct at one point. In fact, he was the frontrunner for a while. When asked while doing press for the Blu-Ray release of his latest film, Gangster Squad, if he was still hoping to direct, Fleischer replied with “Well that’s something that Zack Snyder is going to wind up doing.” Of course, this isn’t official confirmation and he may just be speculating or basing his reply off rumours he’s heard, but it could »

Ryan Reynolds has revealed that he hasn't been asked to reprise his role as Green Lantern for Justice League, while also talking about the difficulties they had with the story on 2011's Green Lantern.
"Not yet. I don't know. If you're gonna do comic book movies in that vein, you really have to get them right. I believe that Joss Whedon is the guy that just nails it and Christopher Nolan obviously nails it. So if they were gonna do it like that, it would be an interesting thing to do. It's just that... working on Green Lantern, I saw how »

Set in 1949 Los Angeles, the drama film is based on true events. Penn plays Brooklyn-born Mob king Mickey Cohen, who rules the City of Angels, reaping his ill-gotten gains from drugs, guns, prostitutes and, if he has his way, every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it with the protection of his paid goons, as well as the police and politicians under his thumb.
In his latest 'State of the Genre' column, Martin Deer reacts to the reports that Christopher Nolan will oversee Warner Bros.' DC movie universe....
I am, I can tell you, still in absolute shock at yesterday's news. For anyone who has read my previous articles regarding Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy and the upcoming Man of Steel you will know that I am very much a fan. Despite being a lifelong fan of both characters however I have never been interested in a team up, and past articles have been vehemently against seeing a Justice League film as in my opinion the characters would be better suited to solo films, especially Batman given his more realistic nature.
So, I can tell you that my reaction yesterday morning when reading the reports that Chris Nolan would be returning, in a producer role, to help bring a World's Finest film to life with his trilogy's Batman, »

As DC and their owners, Warner Bros, try and try again to launch franchises off DC’s extensive comic book line up, they’ve failed to generate anything beyond Batman and Superman. Part of the problem lays in their inability to line-up the right talent. Poor scripts, lackluster direction and miscasting of the leads –which seemed designed to favor of flavor-of-the-month actor versus someone capable of holding an audience, even ones made up of Adhd teenagers.
And with upstart Marvel having stolen the superhero franchises out from older DC’s noses, the people who run both the comic studio and Warners, are struggling to find where they fit in –and whether the audience will tolerate two studios offering multiple, dueling superhero franchises.
Every report we get makes it seem more and more like Warner Bros. has no idea what to do with their DC properties. There have been rumours ranging from Justice League happening only if Man Of Steel is a success, to the project being postponed due to the scrapping of Will Beall’s terrible script, all the way to today’s news of Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale re-teaming for the Jla. The latest news is that there’s already a sequel being planned for Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel.
This isn’t the first word of a Man Of Steel sequel, as rumours have been circulating that there would actually be a full trilogy of Henry Cavill Superman films, but it seemed like a no-brainer that Warner was going to wait to see how the first film fared in theaters, especially with the news of Justice League being contingent on those results. »

There have been a number of intriguing rumors circling Warner Bros. and DC Comics long-gestating superhero ensemble Justice League in the last few months. Now a new story has surfaced that puts Christopher Nolan in the producer's seat with Christian Bale returning as Batman and Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman.
The project has long seemed in trouble, with DC Comics trying to catch up with Marvel Studios and their success with the Marvel's The Avengers franchise. Last month, it was widely rumored that Justice League's fate rested solely on the success or failure of Warner Bros.' Superman reboot Man of Steel. Then, it leaked that the studio was very unhappy with Will Beall's script, and that they are currently seeking out a new writer.
Now, it is being reported that Warner Bros. is bringing Christopher Nolan on to not only produce, but also shepherd the project, »
Apparently, the Justice League film is in trouble. Last we heard, Will Beall’s script was trashed by Warner Bros. and the studio was looking to head in a new direction. Though they haven’t announced anything officially just yet, Latino Review has the latest scoop on the project and they claim that Christopher Nolan is developing the film and plans to bring back Christian Bale to reprise his role as Batman. Man of Steel star Henry Cavill will also appear alongside Bale in the film and if that isn’t enough to get you excited, Zack Snyder is also rumored to be directing.
Now, this all seems like a case of ‘too good to be true’, but Latino Review is usually pretty accurate when it comes to this stuff and involving Bale and Nolan, as well as Cavill and Snyder in the Justice League film seems like a safe bet, »

Rumors have been swirling about what Warner Bros. is going to do with their mountain of DC superheroes in the wake of Marvel's dazzling success with "The Avengers," but the studio has backtracked on Will Beall's script and may be unable to reach their 2015 release date for "Justice League."
Or can they? The (frequently correct) rumor mongers over at Latino Review have just posted a video claiming to have inside info that the masterminds behind this summer's "Man of Steel" (Christopher Nolan, Zack Snyder, David Goyer) will be taking the reigns of the entire DC Universe, with Snyder directing Justice League and… *drumroll* Christian Bale returning as Batman!
Back in November, we ran a hot story that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was going to pick up where "The Dark Knight Rises" left off by donning the cape and cowl, but if recent reports of the Henry Cavill-starring "Man of Steel »

In every interview he did last year -- including our interview with him from December -- Christopher Nolan maintained that his take on Bruce Wayne and Batman was over with “The Dark Knight Rises.” Now, however, Latino Review (via Forbes) is reporting that Warner Bros. -- after possibly scrapping Will Beall’s draft -- is in talks to get the secretive director on board for the future of their superhero slate with a little help from his friends. “Well, I’m producing Superman now and I’m enjoying time off and taking a break” is what Nolan said last year when we asked him if he was done with superheroes for good. However, if these reports are to be believed, it seems the studio has spent the past few months wooing Nolan into taking on the same "godfather" role that Joss Whedon has taken on at Marvel, in an effort »
