DC plans Justice League movie...again

It almost seemed like they were planning to start something similar in Green Lantern by having Amanda Waller show up but then the movie flat out killed her off.

The movie also being terrible and one of the biggest cinematic bombs of the decade didn't exactly help any future plans either.

That's kind of been the problem more than anything with DC trying to give other super heroes beyond Batman and Superman movies. A combination of bad luck, incompetence, or cold feet by those controlling the money has halted any attempts to get more than those two names out into the general public or, in Green Lantern's case especially, attached very negative stigmata to them.

While I don't think they should copy Marvel's integrated universe idea whole cloth they SHOULD try to go with the idea of starting with something smaller scale first to deal with the perception issues for their characters before unleashing the giant mega cross-over madness.

The problem is, this movie will be compared to The Avengers. And it will most likely not be as good.

Hopefuly this'll be based on the New 52 Justice League so we get Cyborg. And we better get at least some Nightwing in this!!!

I wish they would use john stewart I don’t like hal

I hope there isn’t one female like there was in avengers if it is please let it be huntress or black canary I’m not really a fan of wonder woman so please let the be more than on female

Agreed.. I would actually prefer John Stewart here. Also.. I REALLY would have preferred they did a World's Finest movie before they went all out with Justice League. With the power level on those characters, this will not be an easy movie to write or shoot without gimping everyone.

It really doesn't matter which version of which hero they use unless they can do justice by them. No pun intended.

Me and my friend were just talking about this. He thinks that if they're going to add another female it should be hawk girl because she was an original member in the JLA animated series, which a lot of people watched.

I really don't see Hawkwoman without Hawkman.

Sadly, Wonder Woman will be the extent of the female characters we get. But, Wonder Woman is A LOT more well known then Black Widow.

I think John Stewart would be a lot better also, there needs to be more black super-heroes

I've been meaning to respond to this thread and now I will. The problem with DC is that they pretty much put Superman and Batman (and perhaps Wonder Woman) on the pedestal compared to every other hero in that universe. They're gonna need to hire some writers who really know the character's history and that will be able to make them look good and standout with Batman and Superman. I'm sure Geoff Johns is the perfect guy for that. Hell, even Jeph Loeb can too. Wonder Woman might be tricky but hey, that was what I thought about Thor but Marvel Studios made it work with the Nine Realms. I can still see some of the other members of the JLA working in real life. Flash, a rebooted Green Lantern, and even Cyborg. Smallville created a nice origin for him. This project of DC is going to take a long time to happen.

Other than the batman and certain superman movies, has there been a GOOD DC movie?

There's also Watchmen, I think. And Supergirl.

I won't really call either Watchmen nor Supergirl good DC movies. Watchmen...maybe, but if you are a fan of the GN you'll be sorely disappointed on several areas. Personally, I don't think there's any superhero movie I would call good aside from Superman and Batman.

As for a Justice League movie, even though WB has hired someone to write the script, I think the enormous success of The Avengers is the real reason why they're pushing this project ahead. If TA had bombed or failed to meet its expectations, you can bet that WB would've quietly shelf the JL movie, because they are so risk-aversive and if they don't think the audience wants a superhero team-up movie, they won't have bothered. It's the same reason why they keep making Superman and Batman movies, and avoided WW and other DC superheroes. And when they do make other movies, we get Green Lantern, Catwoman, and Steel.

I actually think that would be a much more inventive and effective approach than trying to directly compete with the style and format of The Avengers, but it's Hollywood we're talking about, so if a Justice League movie ever does come to fruition you know it's going to be just that--an easy way to cash in on marketable trends.

That's a good point.

Someone got bored and made a fan trailer to the Justice League movie. Most of the clips are from Smallville too. I did liked this trailer and thought the selection of scenes from the Nolan Batman movies were cool as well.
