Shortly after trashing it’s first script, Justice League has been given new life as rumor has it Christian Bale is in talks to reprise his role as The Dark Knight in a JLA film.

While both news stories are rumors and should be taken lightly, Justice League is looking a lot better than it was a couple weeks ago.
Meanwhile, a source claiming to have seen an early screening of Man of Steel is claiming that it is “the best movie of the year”.

Artisans seem to treasure having someone there to keep score, dot the I’s and check the T’s: while the Guardians like having someone with talent to go out there and be aggressive, kickstart enterprises and court and charm potential partners and customers.
