Jason Sudekis, Kristen Bell, Uma Thurman and More Are Making a 'Justice League' Movie?

Nov 28, 2011

Well, not quite. However, they will be playing DC superheroes for a new short film that's part of the comedic anthology Peter and Bobby Farrelly directed called Movie 43. The film will be broken up into several short films (most -- or all -- of which are dirty and over-the-top silly) starring all sorts of familiar names (like Emma Stone, Gerard Butler and Hugh Jackman, among others). Speaking to Leslie Bibb on the set of her new horror movie, Collider learned that her segment in the Farrelly film will follow a bunch of dysfunctional superheroes (most of whom also happen to be members of the Justice League) and was inspired by the short Robin's Big Date, which starred Sam Rockwell as Batman and Justin Long as Robin (watch it below).

Long will be reprising his role as Robin, though this time Jason Sudekis will fill in as Batman, with Bobby Cannavale playing Superman. Here's what Bibb had to say about the short, which sounds fun:

"The Farrelly Brothers did this compilation of these shorts and there’s a whole slew of us. Hugh Jackman did one, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet. Mine is, me and Jason Sudeikis and Justin Long and Bobby Cannavale and um…John Hodgman is the Penguin. And Bobby Cannavale is a jacked up Superman who smokes. And we all are like these fucked up superheroes. Like, I’m sleeping with Batman [Sudeikis]. He won’t call me back. I’m kind of crazy. And we’re at this dating mixer. Uma Thurman is, I think is Supergirl and Kristen Bell is Supergirl and Uma Thurman is Lois Lane or something. And we’re all just dysfunctional superheroes, like superheroes who just can’t get a date. So we’re all at this speed dating thing. So, I’m Wonder Woman and I have on this amazing wig and the whole getup, which was pretty fantastic. And I’m crazier than bat shit. Like, she is really crazy, so it was really fun because I know Jason and he won’t call me back and I love him and he just doesn’t care about me. And so it proved to be a good time."

Movie 43 is set for an April 13th release. And here's the original short, in case you've never seen it.
