dccomics1 Justice League, Flash & Wonder Woman Movies Confirmed; Batman Being Rebooted?

Jeff Robinov, president of the Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group, is opening up and letting movie fans know that his company has some far-reaching plans for their DC superhero properties. Plans that include taking another shot at the long-stalled Justice League movie.

In addition to having a DC superhero team-up film to rival Marvel’s The Avengers, Robinov has also stated that the team-up film will launch other cinematic properties like The Flash and Wonder Woman.

Of course a Justice League movie wouldn’t be complete without Batman – but Chris Nolan has been very clear that his Batman trilogy (which ends next year with The Dark Knight Rises) is a self-contained universe. That’s OK, says Robinov: they can just create a new version of the character for the Justice League continuity.

Speaking with Hero Complex, Robinov dropped the following tidbits:

  • DC/WB wants to have a Justice League movie in theaters by 2013.
  • A Justice League script is already in the works.
  • Wonder Woman and Flash scripts are already in the works.
  • A Wonder Woman movie WON’T conflict with the TV show (see: Smallville and Superman Returns).
  • Batman will still be a franchise “centerpiece” after Nolan departs.
  • Batman will be “rebooted” or “reinvented” after The Dark Knight Rises, likely for the Justice League continuity.

For the full story head over to Hero Complex.

We’ve known for a while now that Wonder Woman and The Flash, were being developed as films (particularly The Flash); however, I think it was widely assumed that the Wonder Woman TV Show was coming at us in lieu of the movie. It’s interesting that the character will be breaking into not one but two lanes of media.

As for Justice League - it was always assumed that DC/WB would follow close on the heels of Marvel Studios and release a superhero team-up flick – but will it be George Miller’s stalled Justice League movie from a few years ago that goes into development, or that new vision from the Nolan brothers that was rumored a while back? Maybe something else entirely?

Finally, we all knew that the Batman franchise wouldn’t be allowed to lapse after Dark Knight Rises ended Nolan’s run, but there has always been this question of how WB/DC would fit a shared continuity universe for Justice League around Nolan’s self-contained universe. Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man has already crossed the line of rebooting a character’s continuity so soon after their latest cinematic outing, and from what Robinov says, Nolan could even have a hand in reinventing the Dark Knight for this new continuity. We’ll see about that…

That’s a brief but important slew of announcements from the DC/WB camp – what do you make of all this?

We’ll keep you updated on the development of Justice League, the Wonder Woman and Flash movies as more info surfaces. We’ll also keep you updated on any future Batman news.

  1. Gina Carano would make an AMAZING Wonder Woman…..I honestly cant see anyone else playing WW, she captures the muscular Amazonian straight out of a comic book look, while also being drop dead gorgeous and she possesses an amazing physicality and would be totally believable beating up male superheros and/or male villains.

    • She could look the part…but could she ACT the part? No.

    • Gina carano has it all except for the height and acting skills

    • Listen, she might look the very part but looks are not everything. she needs to poses real acting skill. someone who can make the character believeable who can bring her to life. someone like Sandra Bullock. Gina is Great and all but not so much as an actor maybe she can be a stunt double.

  2. being one of DC’s most notorious fan, I think Evangeline Lilly should definitely be the leading role in the upcoming Wonder Woman Movie. I’ve never seen or ever even heard of the woman before doing some research on the casting, but In my opinion, she definitely looks the part. – DC’s biggest Fan hopefully she can act the part

  3. I honestly don’t think a Wonder Woman movie would even compare or survive in the slightest to the batman and now, the superman series. I hate to say it (and this is coming from a female) but superwomen just aren’t as amazing to watch and I’m not sure that will ever change. The closest thing to a success that I can think of when it comes to a crime fighting female is Lara Croft, and let’s face it, the movie was no Christopher Nolan flick. Other superwomen flicks like Electra, catwoman spin offs (are they any others?) just are plain boring to watch. Movies with the central character being a female fighting in a tight body suit start to focus more on sexy appearances. And I am not in the slightest interested in watching a female hero fight a female villain in a cat fight, and I’m not interested in watching a female hero put to shame a male villain. I think wonder woman has a place in the justice league, but not in her own series. It just doesn’t make for a great movie.

    • You may be right. Female heroes seem to do a better job as a support role…. Looking back at black widow, electra… I personally think its time for woman actors to prove that they can hold their own in their own movie. And wonder woman could be that movie. Chris nolan should definitely grasp the wonder woman movie. He makes sure these heroes are taken seriously. He can do the same with wonder woman.

    • You obviously aren’t a Resident Evil fan. smdh Women are hot heroes. These lame ass directors and producers are the problem.

    • i agree with you WW suckssss..that is prob why 2x the script was cancel.Now they are pairing WW with Superman when actually Lois is Supes soulmate. I guess the stupid writers just wants WW to be on big screen with the help of little push up on the comics but it doesnt work at all.Pls Clois has been a couple for 75years ..WW can be in JLA as a team but not as u said in her own movie..LAME!!!

      • Uhhh! Wonder woman does not suck. The character is very unique and more interesting than your willing to give credit to. I agree that past heroine films have flopped but that was due to producers and directors sucking, not the characters or their stories. Also she has played a major role in the justice league for decades and deserves her own movie. It’s not lame that wonder woman gets her own movie, its lame that people only want to put women in stereotypical supporting damsel in distress roles. Come on people its 2013 not 1950.

    • Have you ever watched resident evil? Just asking.

  4. T

  5. Wonder Women should be the women to did all the stunt moves in the avengers, Heidi Moneymaker. She highly skilled and very beautiful.

  6. Honestly if that is the wounder woman the movie will be a flop…..they need tp find striking yet strong female beauty and braun this one not so much.

  7. Megan Fox would make a good Wonder Woman….she’s got the look anyway.

    • I agree about Megan Fox. At first I was sure that Katy Perry should play WW , until I saw this post. Megan Fox can definitely act an action part. And she DEFINITELY fits the WW profile. She is gorgeous. Great idea.

  8. I think Erin Cummings from Spartacus tv series would make a very good Wonder Woman. For the reasons she works out, she is beautiful and is trained to handle a sword. All of these traits an amazon warrior would have.

  9. I think Olivia Wilde would make a terrific wonder woman. She is beautiful and talented.

  10. could u pls tell me when is justice league non animated film is gonna release

  11. i vote erica durance will be wonder woman..because she is more worthy of that..
