Will Joseph Gordon-Levitt Be A Part Of The ‘Justice League’ Movie?
It can hardly be argued that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of the hottest commodities around, as far as Hollywood is concerned. Therefore, any rumors to do with him receive a lot of attention. It is now being rumored that Levitt might be a part of the Justice League movie, not only that it’s also being rumored that he might play the role of Batman in the film. Of course, nothing has officially been announced about the film beyond Gangster Squad’s Will Beall writing at least a few drafts of the script. It has to be admitted though that, the rumor is a tantalizing one.
For the uninitiated, the Justice League, also called the Justice League of America or JLA, is a fictional superhero team that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. The Justice League originally appeared with the line-up of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash (Barry Allen), Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Aquaman, and the Martian Manhunter. The team roster has been rotated throughout the years with characters such as Green Arrow, Captain Marvel, Black Canary, the Atom, Hawkman, Elongated Man, Red Tornado, Firestorm, Zatanna Hawk Girl, other Green Lanterns, and dozens of others.

Various comic book series featuring the Justice League have remained generally popular with fans since inception and in most incarnations, its roster includes DC’s most popular characters. The Justice League concept has also been adapted into various other entertainment media, including the classic Saturday morning Super Friends animated series (1973–1986), an unproduced Justice League of America live-action series, and most recently the animated series Justice League (2001–2004) and Justice League Unlimited (2004–2006).
A live-action film was in the works in 2008 before being shelved. Then on June 6, 2012 Warner Bros. announced a new live action Justice League film was in development with Will Beall hired as screenwriter. Interestingly, an Internet rumor was being spread that Ben Affleck was one of the first choices to direct and star in the movie, but he turned it down. This has been proven to be false. Warner Bros. hopes to shoot the film in 2013 and release it in the summer of 2015.
