The latest news on the Justice League film is that the script has been scrapped and the producers are going back to the drawing board. This is not a bad thing to me, as it seemed that the film was being rushed into production to capitalize on the success of The Avengers. The script had the JLA facing off against Darkseid, which sounded a little too close to the alien invasion and plot from Marvel's film, not to mention the visual similarities to Thanos. The JLA needs to stake out its own territory, so what could be cooler than an all out JLA vs. The Secret Society movie? Yeah it would be a lot of characters, but the writers on the Justice League animated series did it more than once and made it work. It might even be cool to see an adaptation of Justice, the great mini-series by Alex Ross, Jim Krueger and Doug Braithwaite. It would also remind older viewers of the Challenge of the Super-Friends cartoons from their youth, which would add in a nostalgia factor. I would still prefer solo films for Flash and Wonder Woman at least before a JLA movie, but if they just want to dive right in, it might be fun to see them go crazy with a big concept like a battle with the Society.
