Five superheroes to ruin one mediocre movie



Tbdgeorgemiller092507 It’s geek time at The Juice*. Variety reports that Warner Bros. has signed George Miller to direct an upcoming  live-action version of Justice League of America.

You probably have seen a film by the 62-year-old Aussie, who not only helmed the Mad Max trilogy, but also Babe: Pig in the City and the penguin yarn Happy Feet.

The film, which will likely feature Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and the Flash battling an as-yet-unnamed villain, is slated for a 2009 release.

Unfortunately (since it would likely cost the GDP of Luxembourg to make the movie if they were hired), neither Christian Bale nor Brandon Routh are expected to reprise their roles as Batman and Superman, respectively.

The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has gone so far as to petition Warner Bros. to not make JLA until his Batman projects are done. Because a campy JLA flick would totally shatter the illusion.
