Rumor of the Day: Terrible Justice League script supposedly scrapped

Hope you weren't in a big rush to see that Justice League movie get made.

Man of Steel isn't even out yet, but because of the crazy success of Marvel's Avengers, everyone is clamoring for a Justice League flick.  There was a maybe 2015 general release year, but people were already arguing over who would direct, who would be the villain, what the plot would be, and on and on.  The only thing we did know was that there was a script out there by Will Beall.

But now it looks like we may not even know that.  Rumor has it that whoever is in charge of putting together the would-be DC hero picture has decided that the script just isn't going to cut it.  That's the word, folks.  The script's been scrapped.  And not because it wasn't the right fit, either, apparently.  Here's what Devin Faraci from Bad Ass Digest had to say:

The story from each source is the same: it's terrible. Some sources seem to think the whole movie is going to fall apart and never happen, while some believe that Warner Bros will keep moving forward, unwilling to lose the superhero arms race.

Could we make a humble suggestion?  Keep with that other plan we heard, where you wait until Man of Steel succeeds or fails.  Then try and build up some other solo franchises before you fly blindly into something as big as a Justice League movie.

But maybe that's just us.  What do you think?
