JLA Movie casting rumours!

Posted by gnn1 on Saturday, 1 September 2007

Got some casting rumours today from StarPulse. They are sourced to, and I checked out IESB. These are only rumours!!

As any movie fan knows, rumours start flying at a project’s announcement, and don’t conclude til its premiere. So here is a batch for JLA:

  • Martian Manhunter will be part of JLA. Sources indicate Laurence Fishburne is an early favourite.
  • Mel Gibson and Bruce Willis are being looked at for Max Lord and Lex Luthor, respectively (I could easily see Bruce playing Lex…).
  • Ryan Reynolds is listed as playing Flash (this rumour is pretty consistent).
  • Tom Welling’s name was tossed around for the role of Superman but one source says he is a no-go.  Rumour has it Brandon Routh who has been playing Superman will not be in the film.
  • Other names being mentioned include Leonardo DiCaprio, Jake Gyllenhaal, Scarlett Johansson, and either Jessica Alba or Jessica Biel (I’ve seen both names).
  • George Miller is on as director (confirmed from what I’ve seen).

Someone sent IESB a plot summary (very spoiler-heavy from their warning). They claim to have a friend working on the film. Here is the link, in case you want it. I haven’t read it, in case it IS legit (I HATE spoilers!).
