"Study Hall" of Justice?

Warner’s big-budget Justice League of America (JLA) may be populated by younger actors in the hopes they will grow into their roles.
Director George Miller (Happy Feet) arrived in LA from his native Australia on Saturday and began screening actors on Sunday. Miller is reportedly seeing upwards of 40 young actors during the two-day casting session, including Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Grindhouse), Adam Brody (The OC), DJ Cotrona (Windfall), Michael Angarano (Sky High), Joseph Cross (Running with Scissors), Max Thieriot (Jumper), Teresa Palmer (Wolf Creek), and rapper Common, as well as Minka Kelly, Scott Porter, and Adrianne Palicki of NBC’s teen drama Friday Night Lights.

Despite previous rumors that Tyrese Gibson was locked in as Green Lantern and Ryan Reynolds had nabbed the Flash role, actors are reportedly testing for those roles, as well as for other major character roles such as Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter. Super-hero costumes were apparently not part of the casting session.

Why such young actors? It has been reported that Miller intends JLA to be a launch-pad film for future JLA sequels as well as spin-off films featuring individual characters from the team. It has not been reported what connection, if any, JLA will have to other Warner Bros. super-hero films being developed by the studio.

Miller will be making casting decisions by as early as mid-week, so stay tuned for further developments!

Justice League of America is tentatively slated for a 2010 release date.
