JLA starring Jessicas Biel?

Postby kidnicky » Thu Sep 27, 2007 12:21 pm

I don't know if you guys have heard about this,but apparently Warners is in talks with Jessica Biel for the role of Wonder Woman in a new Justice League film. I don't know,I just can't see her as WW,I don't think she has the prescence. Furthermore,the movie will feature Batman and Superman,but NOT Christian Bale or Brandon Routh,even though they will continue the roles in further Batman or Superman films. That makes no sense to me. I know a lot of you don't like Routh,but how much sense does it make to replace him for ONE film,then he's back again? How will the general public,who don't read sci fi message boards,react to Superman being a different actor this year,then back to the guy from the year prior in "Superman Returns Again"?

I heard they were making the Justice League movie with motion-capture all-CGI, ala The Polar Express and Happy Feet. In fact, I think the director of Happy Feet is actually helming it.

If this is true, and with it being all of the superheroes together, I don't think the general public will have a a tough time discerning the film from being in the same "timelines" as the current Batman and Superman films, so I don't think having different actors would be a problem. Also, if the CGI thing is true, I move they bring in Kevin Conroy as Batman. Would that rule or what?

Kevin Conroy should be THE ONLY voice of Batman, ever. they should dub his bat voice in over Bale's squeak.

the cg capture thing isn't true, though, it's supposed to be "live action" with heaping amounts of cg. i'd still be very surprised if it was made, though. everyone knows what Wonder Woman should look like, and it's not some wisp thin 20 year old stick girl.

A rumor I heard, so take with a grain of salt wither way you want it to be, that Tom Welling (Smallville's Clark Kent) is in the running for the role of Superman.

And I can't remeber if it was supposed to be all CG or mostly CG like Sky Captain.

1. Welling IS NOT Superman

2. The CG thing keeps going back and forth... one day its true, the next day its not

3. George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet) IS directing

4. Apparently Nolan and Bale are pissed that they are making JLA with their own version of Batman and with a different actor

5. They want Ryan Gosling for Batman

That's all I know.

From what I've read, Bale is just ticked because he doesn't think it makes much sense to carry on another Batman character during the same time that the current Batman films are going. He said e he doesn't care if they make it or not, but would prefere it to be after the Batman "reboot" series.

As for Biel-- Isn't she 5'6"? Doesn't that sound a bit short for Wonder Woman?

the whole ditching Bale and Routh is f*n retarded. Supes was kinda likewarm, but nevertheless Singer has a sequel outline and he and the girls..I mean boys were going to work on it. With an impending strike its financially silly to me to spend moola devoloping this baby. Bats was successful so why stick your middle finger in that franchise? I swear most of hollywood is dumb as a rock so I shouldn't be surprised.
Biel would be perfectly cast in "Nude on a trampoline for The Master-The movie" but for wonder woman it reeks of trying to get the teeny bopper crowd. She does not reek "amazonian" to me. You guys should look up supermanhomepage.com and see the actress named Victoria something who auditioned-she actually looks just like an Alex Ross painting as WW!

The only hope I have for this is George Miller. Otherwise, just finish bats and give us a non-wussy superman sequel.

Them making this in general is retarded. They should wait until they finish the Batman and Superman series' and make movies for at least Green Lantern and Wonder Woman... and what does this mean for the Wonder Woman movie that was in development? This is the only time I'd ever say this, but perhaps DC should do what Marvel is doing and make the heroes' films FIRST, then the team movie (as they are doing with the Avengers).

It also doesn't help that the WB described this as being like "Transformers in tights"- Kill me. As the guy above me stated, George Miller is the only hope I have for this thing because it is surely an abomination in the making.

And as far as Biel goes, yeah, she's hot and all, but she's a TERRIBLE actress. She does have the fit, muscular look, but I also think WW should be a bit older... I'd rather have Jennifer Connelly or Lauren Graham for Wonder Woman. Having Biel is also a sure fire note that they WON'T get Ryan Reynolds for the Flash (due to the Blade III connection)... I never cared for RR as Flash, but I know a lot of fans did.

The only way they can do this and have it make sense is for it to be all-CG/ motion capture. That way it will be clear it's seperate from the current Batman and Supes films. It'll be an animated universe, and if it's successfull it could be a bit of a backdoor pilot for individual Flash, Wonder Woman, ect. movies

...but making it live action (even Sky Captain style) would be really stupid.

if there are people who can't track more than one franchise at a time in their minds... that's just sad. if i want a cartoon JLA, i'll watch the great one that was on tv- a motion capture would look weird.

i'd rather they didn't even bother with this, since dimes to dollars they will change all the suits around so they barely resemble the ones in the comics. no one would pay to see a movie with heroes wearing all black leather outfits, would they...?

oh, drat.

Is Ryan Renolds one of the "two guys" in "Two Guys,a Girl,and A Pizza Place"? He would be an awesome Flash.

And David,Superman's suit was recognisable in his recent film,and Batman's was at least suggestive of his comic costume,so I don't think we'll get black leather team uniforms. I'm pretty sure they learned that lesson from Catwoman.

Yeah, I know, but its the truth... honestly, I've met SO many people that thought Batman Begins was a prequel to Burton's movie, its ridiculous... even thought its clear just by the PLOT of BB (Joe Chill killing Bat's parents instead of the Joker) that its not. People are helpless, man.

Jessica Biel Passes on Justice League
Source: Lobo
September 28, 2007


Entertainment Weekly has learned that Jessica Biel has decided to pass on playing Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.' live-action Justice League. The former "7th Heaven" star had been in early talks to play the Amazonian princess.

George Miller (Happy Feet) will direct the big screen adaptation. Kieran and Michele Mulroney wrote the script.

Last I heard he was going to be the Flash in the Flash movie. But news on that movie has been pretty silent.

I don't see the problem with Biel for Wonder Woman.

Truth told, I really can't think of an actress that seems "right" for the part.

As far as Miller goes, I would rather he got on with Mad Max IV: Fury Road.

When he does get 'round to it, it'll be interesting to see who he'll cast in the title role since Gibson has made it clear he no longer wants anything to do with the role that made him.


Anyone else find it ironic that the filming of the fourth installment of the series was postponed by a war over Oil?? :roll:

Actually, I thought Jessica's physique was the one thing she had going for her for that role, but I still wouldn't want her for WW.

The REAL outrage is that they will not be using Hal Jordan for GL. :x

This movie is going into production with a summer 2009 release date according to variety. The article mentions several cast members. Superman was not mentioned. A few weeks ago super hero flix posted a story about a second JLA script.
The film is about Green Lantern, Green Arrow and others of the Justice League of America, an organisation made up of the world's greatest superheroes. They must deal with the expulsion of Batman and the death of Superman at the hands of the monstrous Doomsday".

Maybe we will be getting this version of the movie.

The movie is called Justice League: Mortal according to AICN.

That sounds like the middle of a three part act. If they want to go with that kind of story, save it for the second movie. Kick the franchise off with the Justice League v Doomsday in the first film.

Regardless though, I'm gonna keep to my word: no Bale, no sale.

From : IESB
Regarding the status of the rewrites, we've been told the biggest problem with the current script was the lackluster third act. Apparently, the story has already been 100% reworked.

Also, the only department currently working on the film is the "art department" and apparently they are responsible for the major beats of the newly rewritten third act.

A few more new tidbits on the production…we are told some of the designs originally being considered for the look of the film have been described as "ultra-stylized".

And regarding the rumors that Batman and Superman had been removed from the story, "total bull@#$%" is the exact response we received this afternoon from Australia.



From : super hero flix
George Miller, director of the upcoming Justice League of America, considers Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the other members of the league to be directly tied to the ancient Greek gods, according to a report in Neos Kosmos.

"The Justice League superheroes are in fact related to ancient Greek gods and that will be my reference point," Miller says.

Miller wouldn't be the first person to make this connection. When comic-book legend Grant Morrison took over writing duties on the Justice League of America comic, he explicitly drew parallels between the Justice League and the Olympian gods. Superman, Batman and Aquaman were connected to the three brothers who ruled the Greek gods, Zeus, Hades and Poseidon, with other members of the league being linked to the remaining gods in the pantheon.
