Confirmed: SUPERMAN Sequel Will Be A Reboot, JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie Likely Kaput

SUPERMAN Will Get A Reboot And The Once Planned JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie Is LIkely Kaput

A movie referred to internally as “Justice League of America,” originally said to be for next summer, was planned as one of the studio’s major releases. With that film, starring a superhero team, Warner hoped to spark interest in DC characters like Green Lantern who haven’t yet attained the level of popularity of Batman. But script problems, among other things, have delayed the movie.

Warner Bros. also put on hold plans for another movie starring multiple superheroes — known as “Batman vs. Superman” — after the $215 million “Superman Returns,” which had disappointing box-office returns, didn’t please executives. “‘Superman’ didn’t quite work as a film in the way that we wanted it to,” says Mr. Robinov. “It didn’t position the character the way he needed to be positioned.” “Had ‘Superman’ worked in 2006, we would have had a movie for Christmas of this year or 2009,” he adds. “But now the plan is just to reintroduce Superman without regard to a Batman and Superman movie at all.”

Short term bad news. May pay off long term with better movies.
