'Justice League' Movie Hits A Snag?

It looks like fans may have to wait a little longer for the Justice League movie (it was originally slated for Summer 2015.) According to reports, Warner Bros. has scrapped the Will Beall-penned script and plans to order up a complete re-write. The script raised many issues, making it notably difficult for the studio to attract credible directors and producers to the potential blockbuster franchise.

The delay doesn't come as a complete surprise. Troubles have plagued the franchise from the start. Also, the lack of a plot in Beall's last flick, Gangster Squad, did little to comfort Warner Bros. executives—especially since it appeared to overpower solid performances from an A-list ensemble cast.

Another issue concerns which Justice League members will be included in the super hero flick. Plus, Warner Bros. reportedly wants to wait and see how Zack Snyder's Man of Steel film fares before they dump an estimated $200 million into the making of Justice League. If the Superman flick is a box office hit, it will presumably give them the confidence to move forward.

Will the delay give a new screenwriter enough time to come up with a solid effort that can be filmed and produced in time to compete with The Avengers in the summer of 2015? Or will frustration with the movie lead the big wigs to scrap the idea altogether? Stay tuned.
