The rumours surrounding the upcoming Justice League movie are really starting to get out of hand. I don’t even know if I’m coming or going with this thing anymore, there’s just been so much random talk and almost no official word on what the studio’s intentions are and who might be involved. Today, however, I think I may have heard the most ridiculous rumour yet (well, okay, that Ben Stiller/Owen Wilson rumour was pretty silly too).
According to an inside source for Movieweb, it seems that Maggie Gyllenhaal was approached to make a small appearance in the film, but only on one condition: that she bring along her brother Jake so that they could become The Wonder Twins! Now I don’t see how this makes any sense, especially when we know that Maggie Gyllenhaal is replacing Katie Holmes in the next Batman movie. They’ve already stated that they don’t want to bring over the same actors to play major characters like Superman and Batman… so wouldn’t this just add to the confusion? Not to mention the fact that The Wonder Twins would absolutely destroy the chances of keeping this movie even remotely serious. I do think it would be pretty fun to see a Wonder Twins movie one day, like they were talking about a couple of years ago, but I don’t see how this fits into the current JLA movie (even if it is just a short cameo). Thoughts?
