Justice League of America has been getting a lot of attention lately, and I’m hoping it will be better than the campy ’90s movie that was made. So far, all we really have are confirmations that the movie will be made, who the director will be, and who might play whom in the movie.
Well, UGO has received a leaked script:
Ever since the JLA movie was announced people have been wondering what the storyline for the film will be about. What unites these diverse heroes to join together? Are there any villains from the Superman or Batman movies that will make their appearances? Finally we have some answers to give you today thanks to a deep cover source that’s read the script for Justice League of America and provided us with answers to some of our questions.
That is better than anything else and I don’t know why this hasn’t received a lot of attention yet. You better believe there are spoilers after the jump.
According to the website, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and Martian Manhunter make up the League. John Stewart is going to be GL, and The Flash is the youngest member — and has a crush on Wonder Woman!
It looks like the story is heavily based off the “Tower of Babel” and “Brother Eye” arcs. Batman has developed a technology called “Redeye” that spies on League members and has collected information on everyone’s weaknesses. You’ll never guess what happens next: A villain gains control of said technology and uses it against the League.
There is a major plot twist that UGO calls an Empire:
It should also be said at this point that there is at least one major twist in the story that I’m not going to blow because I deem it an Empire spoiler. For those out there that don’t get my reference, imagine it’s 1979, the internet exists and you’re reading rumors about the new Star Wars sequel called The Empire Strikes Back. There’s some new guy called Lando, there’s a big battle on a snow planet, Luke meets up with another Jedi and Darth Vader says something to Luke near the end of the picture. Sure, those are all spoilers but if I came out and said what Vader told Luke? That’s an “Empire”. What’s in the box that Brad Pitt holds in the final ten minutes of Seven is an Empire. Kevin Spacey’s change of footwork at the end of The Usual Suspects is another Empire. Got it? Good.
IESB is also reporting about the ending:
The IESB can confirm that these details are 100% dead on and we can elaborate just a bit more. The last spoiler that we posted above will involve an incredible fight between three of the founding members of the Justice League. The scene has been described as one of the greatest superhero fights ever put on film. Can you guess which three Superheroes?
So, Superman goes bad and Batman defeats him with Wonder Woman and the internet spends forever debating if Batman could have done it on his own.
Of course, since this movie is scheduled for a 2010 release, this could all be crap. There is plenty of time for a rewrite and I’m sure a lot will be changed around. The size of the League has changed from other rumors, but it still sounds like something I’d enjoy watching.
