Warner Bros. has put the Justice League movie on indefinite hold, Variety reported Wednesday night.

Cast members were informed late Tuesday their options would not be exercised, but, according to the trade, Warner Bros. still intends on making the film happen with them.

Director George Miller was not available for comment.

Reasons for the delay included not being able to polish the script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney because of the writers' strike and not getting an official response on tax breaks from shooting in Australia.

Warner Bros. has never publically released any cast members. According to Variety, the cast included the much-rumored Adam Brody as the Flash, Armie Hammer Jr. as Batman and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman.

Warner Bros. does have three comics-based movies lined up: The Dark Knight for July 18, Whiteout for third quarter 2008 and Watchmen for March 6, 2009.

It is highly unlikely that Justice League or a Superman Returns follow-up will reach theaters before 2010.

Sci Fi Channel has released two images from "Blame," this Friday's new episode of Flash Gordon.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"The water that Terek (Craig Stanghetta) provides to the Cantons proves to be contaminated, and Flash (Eric Johnson) and Aura (Anna Van Hooft) must find the antidote before countless lives are lost."

"Blame" was written by Melody Fox and directed by Rachel Talalay. Fox previously wrote two final-season episodes of Cartoon Network's Teen Titans. Talalay was the director of the Tank Girl movie.
