Heard this a little bit ago and was very excited. Please let this be the thing that opens up DC's movie vault.

Warner Bros. has confirmed that George Miller will direct the big-screen adaptation of Justice League of America.
Variety reports the movie is a priority for the studio, which is rushing the project into production before a potential talent strike effectively shuts down Hollywood next summer. To make matters more complicated, Warner Bros. has to juggle its other superhero projects.
According to the trade paper, the next installment of the Superman franchise "has taken a backseat to Justice League in part because Warners is so keen on the Justice League script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney." That would seem to answer the question that's been dogging the planned sequel to last year's Superman Returns.
Despite earlier rumors that Justice League would be made primarily with motion capture, it looks as if it'll be a special effects-driven live-action film.
In addition to the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel, Variety says Justice League likely will feature at least Aquaman, Wonder Woman and The Flash. It's being viewed as a launch pad for movies starring the latter two.
Miller, who most recently helmed the hit Happy Feet, also directed the Mad Max franchise.
