Wright, Nielsen Confirmed For “Justice League”

A report popped up at Forbes yesterday which indicated that, aside from the currently in production “Aquaman” film, Warners is holding off on further announcements regarding its DCEU films until “Justice League” launches.

Said report hasn’t been confirmed yet and claims: “The studio wants to see how Wonder Woman performs (so far so good on that front) and how Justice League turns out before they barrel ahead with multiple more films every year. More films will get made, don’t worry, but it makes sense to ease off the gas a little and be certain about the best route ahead.”

Additional filming on “Justice League” gets underway in the UK this month with actor Henry Cavill posting a photo of himself in his Superman boots and tights this week in tribute to the 79th anniversary of the character.

Additionally, both Robin Wright’s General Antiope and Connie Nielsen’s Queen Hippolyta characters from “Wonder Woman” are confirmed to be making appearances in ‘League’. Speaking with The L.A. Times, both actresses and Gal Gadot were asked if we’ll see more of the relationships between the three women in future films. They responded:

Gadot: Of course; the mother and daughter relationship is always a beautiful but complex relationship. I think that there’s a lot more to explore.

Nielsen: And [Wright and I] got to do more in “Justice League” as well. As sisters as well. Kind of badass as well. We can’t say much, but …

Wright: And more of the story, you get some of the history.

The film is said to feature flashbacks to a time when Atlanteans, Amazonians and early humans united to fight off an alien threat. “Justice League” opens in November.

Hi Everyone! I've been doing some Super Ruminations because this month is the 79th anniversary of Superman in Action Comics and thought it fitting to pass on this little fact. Who knew eh?? In January 1933, Jerry Siegel wrote a short story titled "The Reign of the Superman", which was illustrated by his friend Joe Shuster and self-published in a science fiction magazine. It told the story of a bald villain with telepathic powers. Trying to create a character they could sell to newspaper syndicates,Siegel re-conceived the "superman" character as a powerful hero, sent to our world from a more advanced society. He and Shuster developed the idea into a comic strip, which they pitched unsuccessfully. National Publications was looking for a hit to accompany their success with Detective Comics, and did not have time to solicit new material. Because of the tight deadline, editor Vin Sullivan was forced to make it out of inventory and stockpile pages. Sullivan asked former coworker Sheldon Mayer if he could help. Mayer found the rejected Superman comic strips, and Sullivan told Siegel and Shuster that if they could paste them into 13 comic book pages, he would buy them. #SuperRuminations #Superman #ActionComics
