Justice League film gets script

Will superteam eclipse 'Superman' sequel?

One of the more ambitious projects around town — the bigscreen adaptation of DC Comics’ “Justice League” — cleared a major hurdle last week.

Husband-wife writing duo Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney turned in a first draft that had Warner Bros. suits actually smiling — no small feat, considering “Justice” follows a half-dozen of the best-known superheroes working together, including Batman and Superman.

But the accomplish-ment raises a tricky question for Warners: Should it release “Justice” before its “Superman Returns” sequel?

Christopher Nolan’s next Batman pic “The Dark Knight” bows in July 2008. Bryan Singer’s “Superman” follow-up had been expected to play in 2009. But there’s no script yet for that pic, while Singer is busy getting ready to shot Tom Cruise starrer “Valkyrie” for UA.

The question now: Will a souped-up “Justice League” prove to be Kryptonite to Superman?
