Is Warners Developing A LEGION OF SUPERHEROES Film?


With Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy being one of the year’s top grossing hits, it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that that other studios would be looking at developing their own comic book-based, space operas. And fortunately for Warner Brothers, they have such a property in DC Comics’s Legion Of Super Heroes. And according to Latino Review, Warners is doing just that, going out to writers and agents, looking for the right pitch to develop into a film.

As we noted, this isn’t surprising news and pretty much a no-brainer, so whether Latino Review’s source is legit or whether the site is just taking a flier with an educated guess, this is probably actually happening. But with Warner staking out nine release dates over the next several years for superhero films, I a sure that they are looking at a number of different properties to fill those slots. It remains to be see if the Legion will pass the muster.

For the uninitiated, the Legion of Superheroes is a futuristic variation on DC’s Justice League. Set in the 30th century, it features a group of teenaged superheroes from various worlds who have come together to defend the galaxy from a variety of threats. It has been an ongoing franchise for the comics publisher since their introduction in 1958. While they are a well-known group within comics fan circles, even with a short-lived cartoon series, the group is a fairly unknown commodity amongst the general public.

Kind of like the Guardians Of The Galaxy, huhn?

I have no anticipation for this or any other WB-DC property, based on past disappointments…
