Justice League Might Be Awesome

IESB has recently been posting some interesting updates about the upcoming Justice League film. Their first interesting nugget on Friday:

Yes there will be motion capture used in the film but it will not be an all out “motion capture production.” Heavy motion capture will be used for the OMACs, the underwater sequences and such. So, all in all, this will be a traditionally made film with some motion capture characters, pretty much like every big fantasy movie these days.

And the second:
But, I am telling you, we have triple checked this out and all indications are that Tom Welling in fact is a go on the WB side. I rechecked with my sources and they are all still saying yes, yes Tom Welling, yes Justice League, yes production starts early next year and yes Smallville will have to work around it.

You know, there's been so many different incarnations of the Justice League that have appeared in comics, various animated series, and on "Smallville." The only way the feature film will break new ground is through casting. Tom Welling would be a good start. I say they take advantage of the CGI and make Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman look like Adam West, Christopher Reeves, and Linda Carter, respectively. Of course doing so would result in one of two things. Either the entire geek community would let out a collective simultaneous orgasm or the film would end up as a creepy zombie fest of lifeless looking characters. Given the track record of photo-realistic CGI, it would probably end up turning into the zombie fest.
