Megan Gale certainly looks the goods, I think if they got the lady that does the voice for WW in the JLU cartoons to do a voice over for Miss Gale they would have a winner. Her only 'acting' experience is just commercials so I really hope they dont crap on this movie.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

A new pic from Iron Man is available at SuperHeroHype, and it looks pretty sweet.

Also, The L.A. Times is reporting that Adam Brody has landed the role of Flash in the upcoming JLA flick (which apparently isn't greenlit, according to this article as well).

And finally, here's the teaser poster for the Dark Knight, which is looking great so far.

Oh, and there's also this rumor at AICN hinting at a possible crossover between the Iron Man and Hulk films next year.

So we've got a rumored cast of...

POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD

- actor Adam Brody (OC's Seth Cohen) as Flash / Wally West
- rapper Common as Green Lantern / John Stewart
- model Megan Gale as Wonder Woman
- actor Armie Hammer as Batman / Bruce Wayne
- actor Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights) as Superman / Clark Kent
- actress Zoe Kazan as Iris Allen
- actress Teresa Palmer as Talia Al-Ghul

I've been reading some interesting things that say the movie starts off with Barry Allen's funeral.  Now that would be a strange way to start, but probably give the JLA (and Wally) reason to go after who ever did it. 

How Talia, daughter of Ra's al Ghul, fits into the whole thing is a bit strange though...  ???

Those are the rumors I've been reading as well.  It will be interesting to see where things end up with this one.  I can see the cast raising some questions already though.  Other than what's been shown online, I'm not overly familiar with many of them aside from Brody and Porter (and I guess I know who Common is as well).  I have read that both of them (Porter/Brody) are big comic fans though, so there's that at least :).

I am so impressed with what Marvel is doing if these rumors are true.  What a great way to set up team based movies versus what we're seeing with DC.

Well it could have a TON to do with...even indicates the whole possible storyline to me...

MORE POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD

one of the few JLA books I've read cover to cover..Tower of Babel, where Bats had developed files on how to defeat all the JLA'ers just in case one of them ever went rogue.  Talia Al-Ghul broke into his cave and stole the files...mayhem ensues....

I saw the trailer last night and the movie looks really lame...kinda like the Herbie remake with Lindsey Lohan IMO, but with "snazzy" special effects and lots of kicking.
