Ben Affleck may not be directing Justice League, but Warner Bros. wants to eventually get this movie made so they need to choose someone. How about Matrix directors Lana and Andy Wachowski, because that's what the latest rumor is! There's no confirmation of this news, but for conversation sake let's roll with it.
The news comes from Moviehole, and here's what they said an inside source told them...
What I’m told is Warner Bros are apparently jazzed with “Cloud Atlas”, and love that it’s as much a spectacle as it is a showcase for the immense ensemble involved, so it makes sense the W’s are under consideration. “Justice League” needs to be as big on character, as it does bells & whistles, and the Wachowski’s could probably offer that.
Cloud Atlas looks amazing, and I think the Wachowski's could do a great job pulling off a Justice League film! The directing duo were actually rumored to be directing the Superman reboot at one point, but that rumor ended up being shot down as being false and nothing ever came of it. Plastic Man was another movie there were rumored to be involved with. This latest JL rumor could end up being nothing either, but I'd love to see them brought in to adapt the DC Universe for the big screen. With films like The Matrix, V for Vendetta, Speed Racer and Cloud Altas under their belt, Justice League seems like a project they wouldn't turn down if they were offered it. And they would make one hell of a visually stunning movie!
What do you think about the possibility of the Wachowski's directing the Justice League movie for the WB?
