Following reports last month of Warner Bros. reportedly holding off on “Justice League” barring successful box-office numbers from Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”, it seems the DC Comics team film may be in more danger. According to Badass Digest, “multiple sources” have confirmed that Will Beall’s “Justice League” script has been scrapped. Beall’s script was rumored to center around Darkseid and a “heavy cosmic threat.”
Rumors about the script’s central story have run rampant, making it difficult to figure out exactly which characters would be involved in the film — but Badass Digest reports characters beyond the “core five” of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and The Flash were “cut and added from the proceedings seemingly at studio executive will.”
Recently, Fox Creative Consultant Mark Millar spoke candidly about his opinion on the “Justice League” film, calling it “an excellent way of losing $200 million.”
“You can get away with stuff in comics that in live action’s just a bit sucky — the best one is definitely Aquaman,” Millar told SciFi Now Magazine. “Aquaman can’t even talk under water. If you think about it in comics it’s fine, you just have a speech balloon, but how do you have Atlantis and people talking under water? Are they gonna talk telepathically? Is it going to be body forms? The actual logistics of each member of the Justice League is disastrous, and you put them all together and I think you get an excellent way of losing $200 million.”
