Missy Posted August 23, 2007 Report Share Posted August 23, 2007 From IGN: JLA Casting Update And is it going to be a motion-capture film?! by Stax August 22, 2007 - It appears that Warner Bros. is moving ahead with their planned live-action Justice League of America movie, with casting reportedly set to commence shortly for an early 2008 start date. According to Moviehole.net, "Brandon Routh and Christian Bale won't be starring as Superman and Batman, respectively, in the Justice League movie -- but they will both still be starring in the stand-alone Superman and Batman sequels. So don't fret fans, there will only be a new Bats and Supes for the team-up movie." Bale informed IESB.net that he hasn't been approached about playing Batman in JLA, adding, "It'd be better if (JLA) doesn't tread on the toes of what we're doing, though I feel that it would be better if it comes out after Batman 3." Moviehole also reported that a "casting director for the movie will be onboard next week and it's then that they'll be going after their tighted strongmen." UPDATED: IESB.net reports a rumor that JLA could very well be a motion-capture film a la Beowulf, Avatar and The Polar Express. This could explain the recasting of major characters such as Batman and Superman, as well as the reported early '08 production start. As the site points out, however, mo-cap films take a long time so a 2009 release seems highly unlikely now. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
