Justice League of America Movie  

This weekend, Young Hollywood stepped into the superhero hall of justice to see who will get the parts in the big-budgeted Warner Bros. tentpole movie "Justice League of America."

Director George Miller flew in Saturday from his native Australia for a marathon casting session that started Sunday and continues Monday, seeing 35-40 actors test for roles in the comic book movie.

Miller is seeing about four or five actors for the parts of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash, Aquaman, Green Lantern and the Martian Manhunter, with a few overlaps. A few nonhero parts might be testing as well.

On the roll call are Adam Brody (Fox's "The O.C."), Joseph Cross ("Running With Scissors"), D.J. Cotrona ("Windfall"), Mary Elizabeth Winstead ("Grindhouse"), Michael Angarano ("Sky High"), Teresa Palmer ("Wolf Creek"), Max Thieriot ("Jumper") and rapper Common.

The cast of NBC's "Friday Night Lights" is well-represented as well, with Minka Kelly, Adrianne Palicki and Scott Porter also among those testing for parts. No costumes are involved in the tests, which are being taped as actors read script pages.

If the names feel young, it's because Miller is looking for actors to grow into their roles over the course of several movies. Sources say Miller, known to be a methodical director, is testing not only for the roles themselves but how the actors interact with one another while keeping an eye on the look of the whole group. The director is due to present his findings to the studio midweek.

LOL...well, it could be incredible or it could be a disaster! I guess it depends on whatthey do and who they cast, y'know?

I like the idea of them growing into their roles over several movies.

I love you!

Rumor has been that the Superman sequel may wait for this one. Lots of things are in the air apparently (no pun).

There was an article about this in "Entertainment Weekly" a couple weeks ago.

I was sitting up in my bed squealing like a little girl when I read it. I just hope that they do it justice (pun intended).

The article briefly mentioned about 3 plot scenarios that are currently being bandied about the studios.

Boy would I love to work on the scripts for these movies.

Yep...saw that! I've been following all the latest on www.comics2film.com and the info has been pretty scarce! At first they were saying 'no Aquaman' and I was pissed! LOL! I gotta have my King of the Sea!

If you and I can't writethe script, I hope they have people involved who are true fans, y'know?!

Yeah I know.

I hope the Joss Whedon version of "Wonder Woman" goes back into development soon. I've read a few blurbs recently that said the film had been de-railed.

Last I read, Joss had been replaced and theyu were going in a whole different direction. I'm beginning to wonder if this film will ever make it to the screen!

Can't wait for BoyWonderMark to have a chance to wear his tighty whiteys AND be a superhero at the same time. :-)

Make sure to leave your window open so I can fly in, Dale! :)

This should prove to be interesting.

Dare I ponder what part Adam Brody tried out for?

A young Batman maybe...or Green Lantern? Unless he was going for a non-hero part.
