Whenever anyone talks about something more than two years away — be it a wedding, a vacation, or a comic book movie — it’s best to take the “wait and see” approach. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, a 2013 Justice League feature film is described as the “first priority” of Jeff Robinov, president of Warner Bros. motion pictures.
There isn’t much more details in the article, other than that a script is currently being worked on, as are scripts for The Flash and Wonder Woman — and the Wonder Woman TV project, currently in the pilot stage at NBC, shouldn’t affect the prospect of a movie getting made whether it gets picked up or not. Robinov also comments that the Batman franchise will need to be “reinvented” following director Christopher Nolan’s departure from the films after 2012′s The Dark Knight Rises, but that Nolan will be a producer on whatever’s coming next. Whether or not that means a total reboot or something less severe remains to be seen.
2013 sounds pretty soon for a film as seemingly multifaceted as Justice League — Marvel’s analogous Avengers film, out next year, has been in the works in one form or another since 2005. But as the LA Times points out, this isn’t the first time Justice League has been early in development. So yeah. “Wait and see.” In the meantime, hey, feel free to speculate.
