Warner Bros. is planning the long-awaited Justice League feature film and Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall has been brought aboard to provide the screenplay.
The enormous success of Marvel’s The Avengers must largely be responsible for this decision.
Will DC create a cohesive cinematic universe the way that Marvel has and if so will they rely on past DC films or start fresh?
It’s been hinted that Christopher Nolan’s upcoming The Dark Knight Rises will feature a definitive ending for the current version of the big screen Batman character, though Christian Bale has recently suggested that he’s not entirely against the notion of further adventures in the cape and cowl.
Next summer’s Man of Steel, however, marks a more likely contender to launch an ongoing big screen universe and it’s entirely possible that, despite a disappointing box office, last summer’s take on Green Lantern couldn’t be brought back.
