Rumour – The JUSTICE LEAGUE movie is a go, Christopher Nolan, Zack Snyder signed on

Apparently, Man of Steel is a bloody good movie, thanks to several peeps (not us) getting a chance to go see it before the June release. But more of that in today’s Extras. The thing is, when it comes to superhero movies based on DC Comics characters, Warner Bros has had a very hit and miss approach so far. And by hit, I mean Batman, and by miss, I mean everything else.

So where does that leave Justice League then, the big team up film that contrasts Marvel and Disney’s Avengers? Well thanks to that early Superman buzz, in a  good position actually, as Warner Bros is preparing to throw a ton of cash, and a few Goyers and Nolans as well, at the upcoming film.

The ever reliable Latino Review scooped this one up. According to their report, Warner Bros has decided to chuck Will Beael out of the writing room, due to the big failure of Gangster Squad so far, and because his scripts for a JL film smell like Green Lantern.

Instead, they’re going with a one-two combination of Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan, to once again pull a directing and producing gig on a Justice League film. According to the video report about the pull that Nolan now has at Warner Bros, it’s that “Christopher Nolan has completely taken over the DCU at Warner Bros.  Anything having to do with these super heroes, goes through him now.”

The thing is though, Latino Review isn’t exactly sure if this is 100% for a Justice League movie, or a Worlds Finest team-up of Batman and Superman. What they do know however, is that WB wants Christian Bale back. Of course, doing so would ruin several aspects of The Dark knight Rises, but seeing as how not too many folks were enamored with the ending of that film, it shouldn’t be too much of a stretch to bring back the Bat-Bale.

It would probably make Alfred cry, swear, toss his table at the cafe in France and storm off though.

There’s also talk of Batman and Man of Steel writer David Goyer returning for this proposed project

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
