Well it looks like we have some good news and some bad news regarding Justice League this morning. We get the following scoop from the movieweb:
Stuff is reporting that Weta Workshops will be producing the costumes for the upcoming Warner Brothers film Justice League of America. They will be designing suits for Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and The Flash.
Barrie Osborne also went on to mention that Weta Digital might be involved in the film’s visual effects. At this point, their involvement depends on Warner Brothers’ commitment to the project. Barrie went on to say, “George Miller has a great take on the material, so it elevates it to something that’s not a comic-book movie. At the heart of it is a love story, but with a lot of action. It is an exciting film and a different kind of film.”
The good news obviously is that Weta will be making the costumes and may be involved in the special effects. The costuming on LOTR was total porno and I pray that one day I will have them craft me a suit of armor to wear at weddings and funerals. The Weta dudes are master smiths and it is always a good decision when you hire them to work on your film.
The bad news is that this film is going to be a love story. We have a gaggle of super heroes and they are going to focus on romance? International friends what the fuck! Do we need to see another super hero film with romantic interests? Does anyone want this? For the love of all that is good and decent – I hope this film goes straight to DVD. This project continues to shoot itself in the face like Kurt Cobain.
Osborne calls this film “different and exciting” that is a nice way to say that it will suck ass and disappoint. I am not holding out any hope for this one – at least the costumes will look good.
