Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are reportedly moving forward with their plan to release their own superhero ensemble movie Justice League, against Marvel's The Avengers 2.
According to the L.A. Times, the movie is being targeted for a summer 2015 release in order to go head-to-head with the already established Marvel ensemble flick.
In the opinion of The Daily SuperHero this news can be best explained with two words. Bad. Idea.
There is no director attached, no where close to a completed script (there is only a screenplay written by Will Beall), no word on which superheroes will make up the team and even The Dark Knight Trilogy mastermind, Christopher Nolan, turned down the chance to produce the Justice League. Not to mention this film will go up against an already strong and well-established Marvel cinematic universe that has brought in billions of dollars in box office sales since 2008.
Warner and DC would be smart to take a step back and rethink the release of Justice League. Even if they pushed it back six months to one year—a December 2015 release would be a good time to release a film like this. It could make a world of difference in the amount of cash it could make. But in the end, they would rather go toe-to-toe with their decades-long competitor with their first attempt of an ensemble movie.
This sounds like another feather in the cap of bad ideas by Warner and DC when it comes to movie franchises outside of Batman.
