This story sounds familiar


Now THIS is interesting.

Remember this little story we ran? Remember how we stated that the powers-at-be at Warner Bros were considering doing “Justice League” before the “Superman” sequel? Remember how our report was debunked by a couple of other sites – one of them being Variety who, funnily enough, are the ones running THIS story – and their sources?

Well, all I can say is…. Um, actually, I don’t know what to say, besides… I told you something was cooking and here’s the pot to prove it.

Here’s what Variety reported today :

One of the more ambitious projects around town — the bigscreen adaptation of DC Comics’ “Justice League” — cleared a major hurdle last week.
Husband-wife writing duo Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney turned in a first draft that had Warner Bros. suits actually smiling — no small feat, considering “Justice” follows a half-dozen of the best-known superheroes working together, including Batman and Superman.
But the accomplish-ment raises a tricky question for Warners: Should it release “Justice” before its “Superman Returns” sequel?
Christopher Nolan’s next Batman pic “The Dark Knight” bows in July 2008. Bryan Singer’s “Superman” follow-up had been expected to play in 2009. But there’s no script yet for that pic, while Singer is busy getting ready to shot Tom Cruise starrer “Valkyrie” for UA.
The question now: Will a souped-up “Justice League” prove to be Kryptonite to Superman?

I’d say it’s a definite possibility. My contact at the Burbank water tower insists that it’s always been a consideration to release “Justice League” before “Superman Returns II”. I don’t have a crystal ball though, and neither do the WB, so it’s hard to say what will go first.
