Warner Bros hire screenwriter for ‘Justice League’

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern are one step closer to starring together

Warner Bros have finally hired a writer for a Justice League movie.

A big-screen version of DC Comics’ superhero ensemble team has long been rumoured, and has become an inevitability since the success of Marvel’s The Avengers.

Now, according to Variety, Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall has been recriuted to work on a script for the project.

Justice League brings together Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern as leaders of the crime-fighting supersquad. With The Dark Knight Rises spelling the end of Christopher Nolan‘s version of the Gotham mythology, it is likely that Justice League would serve to reboot the Batman character for a new series of movies. Henry Cavill could also reprise his role as Superman after he debuts in next year’s Man Of Steel.

A Justice League project was last put into production in 2007 with director George Miller attached to helm. However, it was later scrapped. Beall is currently working on remakes of Lethal Weapon and Logan’s Run. He is yet to turn in a first draft of Justice League.
