Legion of Superheroes Moving Forward?

A few months ago came a report that Warner Bros. Pictures was working on a “Legion of Superheroes” movie, trying to turn the DC Comics outer space adventure title into their own “Guardians of the Galaxy”.

Today, Bleeding Cool reports that the project is being “pushed through” with an “Avengers-Meets-Guardians” tag. Although the studio has yet to give the project a green light, the site claims it is in “serious development”.

The 30th century-set original comics follows a team of super-powered young adults. The film’s story will reportedly be set in the distant future with a “massive cast of superheroes spread out across the galaxy.”

The studio is also aiming for a lighter tone than their other DC Comics movies, but no screenwriter or director has been attached at this time.
