Damon Lindelof has explained the “problem” he believes Warner Bros. have in developing a Justice League movie.
The Star Trek, Prometheus and Lost writer was talking to The Hollywood Reporter about the long-mooted project, claiming that an issue could be finding the appropriate tone for the film.
“The Justice League problem? I think a lot of that depends on Man of Steel.
The Justice League problem is not a problem of who is the bad guy [for] Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, Superman, whoever you decide to pit them against. The problem is – what’s the tone of that movie?
They’ve been struggling with launching their own tone. The tone of Green Lantern is very different from the tone of The Dark Knight. They clearly inhabit two entirely different worlds.
You want to feel like someone is establishing a world where the Justice League can exist, maybe Man of Steel is that movie. If Man of Steel works, and it’s great, I think it starts to make sense where Paradise Island is in that world. Because that’s an entirely different world than the one Christopher Nolan introduced.”
It has been previously claimed that Warner are holding off on proceeding with a JLA film until Man of Steel is released and the reception to that is discovered.
Man of Steel will be released on June 14.
