4/28/14 - Zack Snyder has signed on to direct a movie about the Justice League. Warner Bros. president of worldwide production Greg Silverman said that the studio is moving forward with Justice League. Man of Steel's Henry Cavill is expected to reunite with the director to reprise his role as Superman. Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot, who play Batman and Wonder Woman, respectively, are expected to star in Justice League. A release date has not been set, but sources say it could release in 2017.

6/8/12 – According to Variety, Warner Bros. hired Will Beall to write its Justice League movie. But Beall and Warner have something of an uphill battle. Whereas Marvel was able to set the table with Captain America, Thor and the Iron Man movies, Warner has only found success with Batman. Green Lantern was a bit of an air ball, and the 2013's Man of Steel is a big question mark.
12/3/08 - The Dark Horizons Web site retracted its story, based on an anonymous source, that Australian director George Miller has dropped off the proposed Justice League movie. Miller's representatives denied to the site that Miler appeared on the Australian Sunrise Morning Show or that he discussed anything to do with Justice League or Mad Max, as previously reported. The representative added that League and Max are "being seriously worked on."
12/1/08 - Director George Miller confirmed to the Sydney-based morning talk show Sunrise that he's no longer involved in the proposed Justice League movie in any capacity. Miller indicated that if the project does get going again, he expects that it'll be recast as "the studios seem to want bigger stars in their superhero movies now." Miller also admitted that he'd like to work with Mel Gibson on something again, and while Gibson doesn't want to do the Mad Max script he wrote, he hasn't given up on that possibility just yet.
12/31/06 - There's a lot of crazy stuff going on with this film. Warner Brothers has hired writers Kiernan and Michele Mulroney to pen the script for its hoped-for Justice League of America movie. The franchise features the superhero team of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, the Green Lantern and the Martian Manhunter, among other heroes. The studio isn't saying which ones may be included in the film.
