Makes a ton of sense since (of the original JLA), Supes is the only one to know Batman's identity.

I'd be happy if Welling played Supes, I'm in the "Tom Welling should have been Superman" camp over Brendan Routhe. But I wish that Nolan would direct and have Bale as Batman.

This is quite untrue.

Superman and Batman have known each ids since SUPERMAN #76.
Which came out in the early 50's.
Before that they knew each other on the Adventures of Superman Radio show clear back in 1945.
JLA didn't start as a team until 1960 or 1961.

I am looking forward to a JL movie and I am dreading it.
If it gets made, PLEASE BE GOOD.

George Miller to lead 'Justice League'
WB moves ahead with bigscreen adaptation
By DIANE GARRETT

Warner Bros. is moving aggressively ahead with the bigscreen adaptation of DC Comics' "Justice League of America," with George Miller aboard to direct.
Project, which is in the initial phases of casting, is a pre-strike priority for the studio, which needs a superhero tentpole for 2009.


Still, making all the pieces fit has been complicated by overlapping superhero projects in the pipeline, since "Justice League" features a pantheon of superheroes including Superman and Batman.

Batman and Superman are active properties for the studio, though the next installment in the "Superman" franchise has taken a backseat to "Justice League" in part because Warners is so keen on the "Justice League" script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney.

Beyond the Caped Crusader and Man of Steel, "Justice League" will likely feature Wonder Woman, the Flash and Aquaman. The Green Lantern is also featured in the comicbook.

Several sources close to the project said that Christian Bale, star of the revived "Batman" film franchise, and Brandon Routh, star of Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns," would probably not appear in the movie.

Helmer Christopher Nolan, current steward of the "Batman" franchise for the studio, would prefer that Warners delay "Justice League" until after he finishes "Batman" projects in development; Bale has also let his uneasiness about "Justice League" be known.

To work around these issues, the studio explored making "Justice League" as an animated film or with motion capture, but all indications are that the pic will be an f/x-driven live-actioner.


Project is so complicated -- and casting-dependent -- that even those deeply involved are holding their breath until production begins.

"They're working very hard to get it to happen," said one party close to the project. "But there are so many characters, it's complicated."

It was for this very reason that many believed Warners would move ahead first with a follow-up to Singer's "Superman Returns." Singer, however, is busy with Tom Cruise starrer "Valkyrie."

Miller has a warm relationship with Warners. He last helmed "Happy Feet," which generated $379 million in worldwide box office for the studio.

This project could give the studio a launching pad for future Wonder Woman and the Flash pics. The studio has been developing bigscreen adaptations of both DC properties.

I'd rather seen them try and fail at a Live Action attempt than another Animated Feature, so I'm glad they're sticking with the Live Action route.

I can see Bale being uninterested, but Routh? What does he have on his schedule?

Personally, I'd rather see a Justice League spin-off from Smallville with that group of guys.

I agree this would be the way to go if they can't get the current Batman and Superman actors to be in the JLA movie but I realize it's a fan dream and would never be a studio option.

I still think that I could actually stomach watching Superman Returns a second time if only Welling had been cast in the role. As it stands I will probably not watch the first one ever again and will wait to rent any/all sequels.

Looks like theyre already casting for the movie, well atleast for Wonder Woman. Taken from Superherohype.com

The starlet, currently seen in the Village Roadshow release "December Boys," has tested for the role of Wonder Woman.
Now that doesn't mean she's in the running or a contender you'd have to be a fly on the wall in the casting director's office to get wind of how she went, obviously but she did read for the Amazonian princess.


She may not be cast, but its still interesting to see what theyre going for.

Jessica Biel in talks for 'Justice'
Actress may take on Wonder Woman role
by TATIANA SIEGEL

Jessica Biel is in talks to lasso up as Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.' all-star superhero film "Justice League of America."

Potential deal marks the first piece of casting to emerge from the DC Comics-based ensemble project, which is expected to feature Superman, Batman, the Flash and Aquaman in addition to Wonder Woman.

George Miller boarded the bigscreen adaptation last week as helmer.

Biel is filming the indie drama "Powder Blue," which wraps in October, opposite Forest Whitaker. She will then segue to "A Woman of No Importance," based on the play by Oscar Wilde. That leaves room on the actress' schedule for "Justice," which Warner is fast-tracking as a project before any potential strikes. However, the film's likelihood hinges on the studio's ability to assemble a cast of superheroes in a small window of time. Christian Bale and Brandon Routh -- Warner's reigning Batman and Superman, respectively -- are not expected to join the production.

The studio declined comment, saying that it prefers to announce an entire cast rather than piecemeal deals.

"Justice League," which is penned by Kieran and Michele Mulroney, could help ramp up a Wonder Woman spinoff, which has long been in development at the studio, with Joel Silver producing.

Biel's recent credits include "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" and "The Illusionist.

Different strokes for different folks I suppose. Yuck is the furthest thing from my mind when I think of Biel as Wonder Woman:

Why do people dislike Blade Trinity? I found it enjoyable. The stinker in that film was Snipes because he was being pissy about his role and he looked like he slept walked thru the film. Biel's character was pretty one dimensional so no real acting was required.

I think Kal was commenting more on her acting range/abilities than her looks.

The body's fine, but the face is fuuugly. And not at all Amazonian/Otherworldly-like which I think how WW should look like.

From that description, it seems Kal-El would rather cast Chyna than Biel.
