The JUSTICE LEAGUE Cast Teases Final Details

The JUSTICE LEAGUE Cast Teases Final Details

Justice League hits theaters next month, and its stars have started opening up about the film. So on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back we discussed if they had anything interesting to say about the movie, along with determining which announced film sounds more reasonable: a Jared Leto/Brett Ratner/Hugh Hefner biopic, or a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog?

Jessica Chobot was joined today by Geek and Sundry‘s Amy Vorpahl, Nerdist associate editor Kyle Anderson, and director of development Brendon Schulze. They started with the latest JL news, including how Ezra Miller said Zack Snyder always intended for the movie to be lighter than BvS, Gal Gadot’s comments that Wonder Woman is the “glue of the team,” and the latest look at the Batfleck Suit.

Then everyone slipped into their nicest robes (metaphorically) to break down the possible Jared Leto-starring, Brett Ratner-directed Hugh Hefner biopic. Yes, really. Is this so crazy it could work, or is this just crazy? And is anything about this news weirder than the fact Ratner wants to bring back Hefner’s 1960s talk show Playboy After Dark?

But that wasn’t the only strange movie news of the day, so they tried to figure out why Paramount is planning on making a live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Raise your hand if you’re excited to see Sonic kiss a human! No? No One? Well either way, with Deadpool‘s Tim Miller producing, and relative newcomer Jeff Fowler directing, can this work? If not, who–if anyone–could pull this off?
