Warner Bros. is considering creating its much anticipated ‘Justice League’ film, which has seen numerous delays recently while trying to start production, in its own universe, Comic Book Movie is reporting. The studio may cast entirely new actors in the film adaptation, meaning they wouldn’t be the same actors from the characters’ respective solo movies.
If Warner Bros. follows through with its plan, it won’t cast Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in director Zack Snyder’s upcoming ‘Man of Steel,’ in the ‘Justice League’ movie. The studio also won’t feature the actor who will portray Batman in the franchise’s reboot in the superhero team film.
This isn’t the first time Warner Bros. considered setting a ‘Justice League’ film in its own universe. George Miller, the director of the upcoming action adventure film ‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ considered making a ‘Justice League’ movie several years ago. The filmmaker’s proposed movie didn’t include ‘Superman Returns’ actor Brandon Routh or ‘Batman Begins’ star Christian Bale.
