Future Of DC Comics Movies Includes Batman Reboot, Justice League In 2013, Flash, Wonder Woman
The Movie God   |  @   |  

The LA Times’ Hero Complex was able to chat with Warner Brothers president Jeff Robinov recently, and he was able to share the future of their collaboration with DC Comics and what adaptations of their comic book properties are currently on the way.

The most exciting thing for fans, perhaps, is the reaffirmation of a Justice League movie being in the works. The project, which would see DC’s top heroes joining forces on the big screen (to compete with Marvel’s Avengers, which is set to arrive in 2012) has been talked about for a while, but Robinov says they want it to be ready to go for 2013. If all goes well, we would see Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman, and others fighting side-by-side.

Speaking of these many legendary characters, Robinoz shared that there are plenty of individual projects in the works as well. Interestingly enough, the one that stands out is none other than Batman. Yes, Christopher Nolan is setting up in preparation to direct his third and final chapter, The Dark Knight Rises, but it appears we won’t be dealing with the same wait we had between the Batman movies of the ’80s and ’90s to Batman Begins. Much like Spider-Man and their own Superman, which is currently putting together a cast for director Zack Snyder’s take, it sounds like WB plans to reboot the Caped Crusader immediately with a new director, new stars, and a brand new vision.

Whether this is smart (we all love Batman movies!), or very, very stupid (who’s going to want to try and follow Nolan’s act? That’s reaching for a bar you can’t see, let alone touch) remains to be seen.

Also in the works are movies based on The Flash and even Wonder Woman, who was thought to be a lost cause. After many attempts to make a Wonder Woman movie failed, a TV show was developed and is on its way to NBC.


  1. Justice League sounds pretty cool and Superman appears to have a pretty stellar cast so far but the one that excites me the most? The Flash! He seems the most accessible and his problems seem the most realistic. The Flash has always been one of my favorites and I grew up with Wally West and his immaturity issues. Barry Allen always seemed kinda…I don’t know…righteous to me? That might not be the right word but it’s the best I have so far. Maybe just a little too grown up, if that makes any sense. On the other hand, I *really* liked Barry Allen after his recent (“Reborn”) return! Cool stuff. I even enjoyed the television series on CBS back in the ’90s. Kinda cheesy by today’s standards but I always thought it was a pretty faithful translation. I only hope they give cast the role responsibly. Ryan Reynolds always seemed like the perfect actor for the role but after appearing as comic book characters in Blade, Wolverine and now Green Lantern, I’d hate to see him appear as the Flash too. Who could fill the Flash’s boots?

  2. If they want to do Batman again, they should go Batman Beyond.

  5. Considering Warner Bros. have trouble with their standalone movies featuring just one supehero, what are the odds they can pull something in the scope of a JLA off convincingly?

  6. Can’t wait to see the Wonder Women movie. Who is sexy and strong enough to play that role.

    Should be a swimsuit model :)

  7. What would it take to get a Tom Selleck as Bruce Wayne movie adaptation of Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns”?
