More Doom & Gloom For JL?

According to an Aussie news outlet, things aren't looking all that good for JUSTICE LEAGUE. Here's an excerpt from the report:

The George Miller mega-movie has reportedly been hit with delays as a result of the Hollywood writer's strike, which also led to the cancellation of the Golden Globes. Confidential hears the script still needs tweaking, but there is no chance of that happening until the writer's go back to work.

While the comic book superhero flick is currently in pre-production at Moore Park's Fox Studios, many of those involved in making the movie have not yet returned to work for the year after their summer [in Austraila] holiday break.

BOF has heard from various insiders that there are some at Warner Bros. who are leery of this film for a variety of reasons, such as: negative fan reaction, mediocre cast, skyrocketing budget, and the affect this film would have on the current solo BATMAN movie series.

The scuttlebutt is that the team behind the BATMAN films are none to thrilled with the JL project. Actor Christian Bale, who plays Batman in both BATMAN BEGINS and THE DARK KNIGHT, is on the record saying that he wish that JL would be delayed until they were done with their Batman.

(POSSIBLE SPOILER: Allegedly, the JL film focuses heavily on Batman and kinda sorta backdoors its way into the continuity of BATMAN BEGINS, despite claims that the JL Batman is not the BEGINS/TDK Batman. How? Talia Al Ghul (Teresa Palmer) is seeking revenge on Batman for killing her father Ra's Al Ghul.)

Nonetheless, production seems to be continuing on JL and most of the cast is in Australia ready to go in front of the camera once they get the green light.

Whether or not that happens or JL ends up doing a SUPERMAN LIVES remains to be seen.
