'Justice League' movie endorsed by Mark Millar

By
Mark Millar has pledged his support to the Warner Bros Justice League movie adaptation.

The studio recently hired Gangster Squad screenwriter Will Beall to produce a script for the project, an appointment that the Kick-Ass creator has applauded.

He said: "A pal of mine is good friends with the new Justice League screenwriter and said his take on the team is incredible. Very real-world and not at all what you might expect. WB has a chequered history with their superhero characters. They're great with their boy wizards, but less consistent with their DC stable.

"But my chum said that this could be a thing of beauty and has been in the works for a little while now, not just an Avengers knock-off. Best of luck to them. The tidbits I heard sound quite dark and mature, which isn't what I expected. But word on Gangster Squad is great too so I feel this is in really good hands."

Warner is yet to confirm whether Justice League will tie into any of its other superhero projects, such as The Dark Knight Rises or the Henry Cavill-starring Man of Steel.
