Somewhere, Mark Millar is smirking. After bluntly saying that a "Justice League" movie is an "excellent way of losing $200 million" it seems that Warner Bros. are already more than aware of the risks. This rumor has been one we've been hearing here and there recently, but if these whispers are true, it means that the geekgasm superhero dream-team movie is going to see a new script.

Take this with the biggest grain of salt you can find (we suggest the Salt District of your local urban center), but Comic Book Movie is exclusively reporting that Warner Bros. is "kicking around" the idea of using Lobo in their forthcoming "Justice League" movie. We can't help but zero in on the intentionally vague phrasing of the report. "Kicking around" could amount to one executive saying "Hey, what about putting Lobo in 'Justice League'?" only to have the rest of the room ask "Who is Lobo?" And then whip him with towels or something.

Will Warner Bros. 'Justice League' Be "Dark & Mature"? Pathological Exaggerator Mark Millar Says Yes

If J.J Abrams, Christopher Nolan, Damon Lindelof and Ridley Scott are viewed as being on the secretive side about revealing plot details and information regarding their unreleased, often still-in-development movies, one then must consider comic book writer Mark Millar to be on the exact opposite end of the spectrum. While not exactly in the movie business like the four aforementioned artists, several of Millar's comics  (such as "Supercrooks" and "Nemesis") are in development at various studios and production companies. Seemingly very enthusiastic to be a part of the Hollywood process, Millar is very amenable to telling you pretty much whatever you want to know about any of his projects in development, going as far as to make wild casting announcements (like when we said Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt were being approached for "Nemesis") and generally claiming unrealistic start dates to any project under the sun (all of them).

With "Green Lantern" tanking and disappointing last summer, "The Dark Knight Rises" putting Batman to bed (for now), and the verdict still out on "Man Of Steel" next year, Warner Bros. is looking pretty short on comic book heroes to exploit. But they've got an ace up their sleeve in "Justice League." A movie they've been trying to get off the ground for years (more on that in a moment), the studio is undoubtedly looking at Marvel's $1.3 billion worldwide haul for "The Avengers" and drooling. You call that a team up movie? How about one with Superman and Batman in the same damn movie? So no surprise they are giving it another go.

'Tales From The Gangster Squad' Writer Will Beall May Rewrite 'Logan's Run' For Nicolas Winding Refn

Considering the spate of remakes and reboots, it takes a real feat to rouse our interest in one. Even with a promising creative team involved, a new version can sometimes just end up feeling redundant with many projects -- some simply don't need to be remade. But at the same time, we're not against the idea in principle -- something like "Ocean's Eleven," "Let Me In" or "The Thing" prove that, with a distinct enough spin, or with source material that left room for improvement, it's not necessarily an evil.

Well, that was fast. Just last night, it was reported that Warner Bros. had just put a whole bunch of buried remakes back into development, including the Mel Gibson/Danny Glover buddy cop movie “Lethal Weapon.” Deadline now reveals that the studio has hired Black List-approved screenwriter Will Beall, who wrote the red-hot “Tales from the Gangster Squad,” to pen the script for the “Lethal Weapon” remake. The studio is hoping to re-launch the franchise with a couple of fresh new actors. While the studio toyed with the idea of filming yet another sequel with Gibson and Glover, schedules didn’t match up and of course, Gibson has totally gone off the reservation recently.
