As Warner Bros. still looks for a director to take on their Justice League movie, more details about the film are leaking out. Thanks to our friends at Latino-Review we've learned what Justice League comic book story arc served as inspiration for the script that Will Beale is writing.
Gerry Conway’s 1980 Justice League Of America 183-185 is the story that we'll see brought to life on the big screen. Basically the three issue arc features the superhero team coming together to stop Darkseid from destroying Earth by blasting it with a death ray that’ll move Apokolips into the Earth’s place.
Here's the description from the comic:
im Starlin cover cover. (story line runs through #183-185) The annual team-up for the Justice League of America and the Justice Society of America begins in this issue. This year the two teams, even with an assist from the New Gods, have their work cut out for them as they take on none other than Darkseid himself! Written by Gerry Conway with art by Dick Dillin and inks by Frank McLaughlin. This issue features Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Doctor Fate, Powergirl, Mister Miracle, Geoforce, and the the Huntress.
It's no surprise that they are going to go epically big with this one. It's going to be exciting to see all of these character up on the big screen together battling Darkseid. I just hope they can turn it into a great film, because it could easily end up being a mess. Let's hope they hire a solid talented director. What do you think of this story arc being the inspiration for the film?
