Remember how we were all super-excited that Will Beall (“Gangster Squad”) was writing a script for the Justice League movie?
Get ready to have your anticipation slashed to ribbons. Devin Faraci of Badass Digest reports that Beall’s draft did not, uh, pass muster.
Faraci is far less diplomatic than I.
I’ve now heard from multiple sources that the Will Beall script for “Justice League” has been scrapped. The story from each source is the same: it’s terrible. Some sources seem to think the whole movie is going to fall apart and never happen, while some believe that Warner Bros will keep moving forward, unwilling to lose the superhero arms race.
Terrific, I’ve been dying to see a worse super-hero movie than “The Punisher.” Dreams do come true.
And, according to Faraci, there’s this:
…The script has been half-baked from the beginning, with reports saying that heroes (beyond the core five of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern) have been cut and added from the proceedings seemingly at studio executive will. The latest word was that Warner Bros., experiencing real cold feet, had decided to wait until “The Man of Steel” to really move forward, but it’s possible that moving forward now will mean a whole new script.
You know who should write the new script? J.J. Abrams. He doesn’t have much going on these days.
Strap in, folks. I have a feeling this story is going to get messsier.
