Justice League Movie Greenlit: No Wonder Woman for Jessica Biel

A Justice League movie is under way at Warner Brothers. Helmed by Happy Feet's George Miller this could be a huge film. You've got Batman, Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and more all on one screen. Too bad it seems to already be off to a bad start.

Jessica Biel has turned down the part of Wonder Woman and the studio has arrogantly claimed that this film can co-exist with their other franchises The Dark Knight and Superman: Man of Steel without tying into them with any continuity. Meaning, Christian Bale won't be playing Batman and Routh likely won't be playing Superman (although he expressed interest). The Flash feature has been put on hold and the Wonder Woman flick seems dead in the water. The movie is also being rushed for a 2009 release according to Entertainment Weekly.

What this all says to me is that we'll end up seeing some over-produced, no-name cast, mess of a film hacked together by focus group results and glossed over with shitty special effects.

I wonder if they'll just make this Smallville: the Movie.

I do have some faith in Miller (he did make Mad Max afterall) but I'm getting the impression that this is going to be out of his control as it careens wildly into the Warner Bros brick wall.

I feel like we've just seen it so many times before - budgets will balloon, the script will change under the studio's insecurity to make a decent special effects heavy ensemble film, and there will never be enough screen time for any of the superheroes.
