Warner Bros. is currently on the hunt for a director to take the helm on Justice League of America, after we reported yesterday that Ben Affleck is not involved in the project. Today, we have word that the studio is now considering Cloud Atlas directors Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski for this superhero ensemble.

The studio is reportedly very high on Cloud Atlas' immense scope and its ensemble cast, two things the Justice League of America movie will certainly have. It isn't clear if a formal offer has been made to the siblings. They also have projects such as Cobalt Neutral 9 and Jupiter Ascending in the works, although it isn't known if either of those will be their next picture.

Will Beall (Gangster Squad) wrote the screenplay, which will likely bring together DC Comics luminaries such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern.

Justice League comes to theaters in 2018 and stars Gal Gadot.

    Thanks, @bawnian-dexeus. I managed to see it before it was taken down. I must say, I laughed quite a bit, though I wish it was longer and featured some of the more obvious puns, like Joker's sexuality and origins, perhaps the entire Flashpoint piece? Lol. Still good, though.

    On one hand, they did The Matrix and V for Vendetta... on the other, they did The Matrix 2&3 and Speed Racer.... It could go either way.

    @SherlockHolmes2009@mcleve02 -- Not to go all @dan1 on you guys, but I'd let it be. You know what they say about trolls; don't feed them, they crave attention. Instead, I'd flag his posts, and report him to the admins and Movieweb. I don't mind telling him to take a hike once and a while, but that's the most time I'm willing to waste.

    Don't take offense, as that's only a suggestion. Regardless, I respect your future actions.

    @mcleve02 -- Oh, I know. I saw his history, and he's a blatant hypocrite. I love how I get threatened, but people like him roam this place, and don't even get a slap on the wrist.
