Many fans (myself included) consider Batman-On-Film to be the end all be all for Batman movie news. So as reported here earlier, BOF had this to say concerning Warner Brothers’ “plan” on when we can expect a new Batman movie franchise from one of their sources:
“Said [Batman] reboot will come after the JL film, not before. Therefore, the new cinematic Batman will be introduced in the JL film as opposed to a solo film. This would, according to my industry “FOBOF,” assure the new Batman film series will be part of a “DC Cinematic Universe.”
Speaking from past experience, if BOF is reporting it, then it’s as good as gold, but the site still warns to take this news with a grain of salt.
So Ben Affleck said no to the directing the Justice League movie, The Wachowskis were rumored to be in the running for it, and now Brett Ratner is linked to the project. Here’s this blurb from Superman Super Site citing a source “close to production.”
“The studio is very pleased with the work that Brett [Ratner] has done as a producer and director on past projects,” states our sources. “They are now very interested in seeing what he can do with helping finally bring this group of iconic superheroes to
the big screen!”
The story goes on to say, a script is currently being written by “Gangster Squad” scribe, Will Beale, Warner Bros. has yet to release any further information on the status of the Justice League film.
However, other very reliable sources are saying that Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) is still the top choice for the director’s chair. Hopefully, an official announcment will be made soon.
