This past summer’s Man of Steel marked a big step forward for Warner Bros. with regards to its DC Comics properties. Following Marvel’s massive success with interconnected superhero movies, WB has been trying to find a way to take a similar approach to its DC characters. Green Lantern was a swing and a miss, and Christopher Nolan made it very clear that his Dark Knight Trilogy was a standalone set of films not set within a larger universe. But with Man of Steel, WB finally has a hit with a rebooted DC character, and the studio is moving forward with a follow-up that brings Batman into the fold.
Obviously the endgame is a Justice League movie, but WB has been toying with that idea for years. Director George Miller came extremely close to getting his iteration of Justice League in front of cameras in 2007, but the plug was prematurely pulled. However, a leaked version of the script for Miller’s film has now landed online. Hit the jump for much more.
