Warner Bros. Justice League Movie In 2013

picThe LA Times has an in-depth and interesting article up on the current state of Warner Bros., with Jeff Robinov to take over as studio president beginning next week.

Among change in consumer behavior as DVD sales and movie ticket sales decline, Robinov is faced with replacing the billion dollar franchise, Harry Potter, that comes to a conclusion this summer.

The LA Times notes that Robinov is banking not only on the upcoming Green Lantern, Batman and the 2012 Superman films - but the 2013 Justice League.

"Robinov is betting on DC Comics characters to take center stage starting in June with the $200-million-plus production 'Green Lantern.'"

"He's then aiming to release new 'Batman' and "'Superman' films in 2012 and 'Justice League,' a teaming of DC's top heroes, in 2013."

The article mentions how Robinov had a hand in Christopher Nolan's Inception and Batman, and the movies Sucker Punch and Sherlock Holmes.

Robinov previously held the title of president of production since 2002 with the predecessor on his current post, Alan Horn, "grooming" Robinov for the role, according to the Times.

Before that Robinov worked as an agent and signed The Wachowskis and the Hughes Brothers.

Update: The LA Times Hero Complex shares with us that a script is in the works for Justice League and that Robinov is also planning movies for Flash and Wonder Woman, possibly after Justice League.
