‘Justice League’ Script Being Scrapped? Is the Big Superhero Movie in Big Trouble?

Justice League Lineup

The ‘Justice League‘ movie seemed to be going full steam ahead at Warner Bros. until a few weeks ago when rumblings of trouble in superhero paradise began. First, we heard that the movie might not even happen if ‘Man of Steel‘ isn’t a huge hit. Now, we have word that Warner Bros. hates the current ‘Justice League’ script and may be rethinking their plans for the movie.

Badass Digest is reporting that writer Will Beall (‘Gangster Squad‘) submitted his ‘Justice League’ script to Warner Bros. and the studio executives thought it was “terrible.” (It likely does not help his cause that ‘Gangster Squad’ was a costly misfire for the same studio.) As you’ve heard, the film was set to follow Superman, Batman, Flash, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman as they battled Darkseid, one of the most powerful villains in the DC universe (and a similar foe to Thanos, who will be the centerpiece of Phase 2 of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe).

Warner Bros. has reportedly scrapped the existing ‘Justice League’ script but what does that mean to the future of the project?

The Badass sources were mixed. Some insiders were inclined to believe the studio would not be willing to cede victory to Marvel and would continue to develop a ‘Justice League’ movie come hell or high water. Other sources seemed to think that Warner Bros. wanted to cut their losses and that ‘Justice League’ would fall apart and not happen anywhere in the near future.

Where do you stand on this issue? Obviously, we’re happy that a sub-par ‘Justice League’ script didn’t get rushed into production to meet a pre-existing release date. Now should they continue to work on this movie to match up against ‘The Avengers 2‘ in 2015? Should they ditch this version of the project and wait until they can successfully launch standalone films for each of their starring superheroes?
