Justice League, Where the Wild Things Are set for 2009

Even as some news sites were just posting the speculation that Justice League was pulling out of Australia, Variety broke that the film was going on all cylinders, aiming for a not-very-specific 2009 release. (The source of the "news" was the Sydney Morning Herald, which was also under the presumption that the title of the movie was Justice League Mortal. It sounds more like a conflation of the real title and the film’s Blue Harvest/Rory’s First Kiss-style shooting title than a real title, but AICN seems to be running with it. They also break the exclusive news that some guy I don’t remember from Mad Max is playing Martian Manhunter.)

The Variety piece editorialized that Warner Brothers needed another major release to prop up their 2009 year; their only tentpole releases are Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins for May 22; the rumor-mill whipping post Where the Wild Things Are for Oct. 16; and Watchmen, on track for March 6.

Now that the strike is over, Kieran and Michele Mulroney are working on polishing their script. The (verified) cast I’m already bored of reading fanboys bitch about consists, so far, of Adam Brody as the Flash; Common as Green Lantern; Armie Hammer Jr. as Batman; and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet) is directing.

    Megan Gale is one hell of a reason to watch this movie.

    I have high hopes for “Watchmen”. Graphic Novel was amazing.
