Following the massive success of The Avengers, it appears Warner Bros. wants to get in on the ensemble superhero action. Variety reports that the studio is finally moving forward with its long-in-development live-action Justice League movie, which will unite Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, and more DC heroes on the big screen for the first time. There’s no word if the actors who currently play those characters will be back, or if Warner Bros. and DC will hit the reset button and bring in new faces.
The Justice League movie will be penned by screenwriter Will Beall, who recently wrote the film noir throwback Gangster Squad. There’s no word yet on when it might save the day in theatres.
In the meantime, Batman will return to the big screen in The Dark Knight Rises on July 20, and audiences will be introduced to a new Superman when Zack Snyder’s The Man of Steel soars into cinemas in June 2013. Over on the small screen, Green Arrow is getting his own live-action TV series, which will premiere this fall.
