DC Entertainment To Make Big Announcement!

What are my best guesses? Well, you'll have to read to find out.


dc
ComingSoon announced that the CEO of Time Warner, Jeff Bewkes, announced that DC Entertainment will be making a big announcement soon. (Announcing an announcement?) 

 "We are going to have a fairly interesting set of announcements and presentations pretty soon like in a matter of weeks... there have been a huge number of franchised films that have been part of the Warner [tent pole] strategy that's been the reason for Warner's unparallel high and consistent earnings advantage over the other studios and DC has already been a part of that and we are now going to outline an even more expansive plan for that in the coming months... [you'll]  hear more about our plans to mine more aggressively the deep catalogue of DC Comics characters across Warner Brothers' theatrical, home video, TV and games divisions and across our other divisions as well."

So, it seems as though they'll be putting out more films, tv shows, video games, etc, probably with some characters that don't get as much credit. I'm sure in the next two weeks, we'll get into more specifics... But for now....Let the speculation begin! 
 
Here's what I'm looking for:
JSA Animated Television Show
Green Lantern Sequel Animated Film
Batman Sequel Video Game
Batman 3 Film
Superman Reboot
Carter Hall is the Red Hulk
 
Phew, I'm spent! Anyway, we'll hear more in the upcoming weeks... But for now, what do you guys think this announcement will entail?

I'll be glad to see some more DC franchises. I just hope they are good. I wonder if Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison and Marv Wolfman are still involved.

The fact that I'm still waiting for the day to hear official and serious announcements of plans using Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman or the Justice League (among so many others....) when studios have approved movies for characters like Punisher and Elektra is just sad

equities more power to them.

My real world experience came into question a few times, and I had to explain that I have 3 other jobs from this one, and that I really do know what I'm talking about... most of the time.

seconded
 
ooh and a DC/Marvel ultimate alliance while we are at that
Posted by MysterioMaximus

Whatever they're announcing, I'm hoping something dealing with Batman 3 is there. I heard Nolan was to finally announce if he's doing it...for that matter if there will even be one...around this time.

Flash movie  
Something JSA-related
 
And would love to see more Non-Superman/Batman-centric animated films. Maybe something for Flash or Aquaman?
Posted by Archetype

Sounds like good news to me.DC does good animation, the films of late have been great, and I can't wait to see what DC Universe Online will play like.
 
More news is good news in this case.

Posted by burr787

Suicide Squad movie would be cool.

My money is on Carter Hall being the 'Rulk'. Now that would be the announcement of the decade (at least). 

Edited by Harlekin

They announce the selling of the rights of Hawkman.

I'm hoping for either : 
Batman 3 
Superman Reboot 
Wonder Woman movie 
Flash movie  
Etrigan movie 
Richard Dragon movie 
Sgt Rock movie 
Lobo movie
 
or a JLA movie

Posted by harleyquinn12

I really, really, really want a Green Lantern tv show and Jsa and Teen Titans video games. And maybe Secret Six and Outsiders movies. 
 
Posted by dan1509

Defo a yes to the Batman but seriously, they should just give up with Superman please, now superman prime......
Posted by N15PCA

Here's my top five. 
 
1.I would like Sequel  Wonder Women  Animated  movie. 
 
2.A new season of Justice League Unlimited cartoon show. 
  
3.Live action Wonder Women movie. 
 
4.Live Action Watchmen prequel  movie. 
  
5. A release date to the day on when DC online is coming out. 

Edited by Emerald Warrior

Mine: 
 
1) A BATMAN TV show (yeah, long shot but NOT impossible IMO) 
2) Green Lantern (hal Jordan) Animated series 
3) Superman REBOOT (with villains this time fer gawdsakes!) 
4)  Aquaman animated (an even longer shot, and next to impossible... i know.)
5) and, of course... A  G#DD@MN JLA FILM!!!! 
 
...but, as long as they ACTUALLY do something with DC, other than just let the franchises sit around, it's fine with me!  
 
PS. Now that people saw the JSA on Smallville they're all asking for 'em! lol

DUDE!!! Reboot for Bats?!?!?!?!?!?!?!   I mean Nolan's Batman ain't perfect, but Reboot material? I'm not sure about that myself!  
You don't like?
Posted by ninjasquirrel01
@Emerald Warrior: 
Nolan's batman was great but rebooting it would make sense for several reasons:
1. Christopher Nolan wants to do another movie between the Dark Knight and Batman 3 so Warner Bros. might not want to wait that long.
2. The Dark Knight ended in such a way that it doesn't really need a sequel.
3. Marvel is building up to an Avengers live action movie. DC needs to step up and make a Justice League movie. Nolan's realistic Batman doesn't really fit in with the rest of the Justice League. Having a Batman 3 at the same time as the Justice League movie would be a bit confusing for the casual audience if there are two different Batman's. 
4. This way there is no need for an origin story outside of just the opening credits. It would just be the first meeting of Batman and Superman.
5. Also this:  
 
 
The only conceivable problem in this is who would play the Joker and have to live up to Heath Ledger's outstanding performance.   
 
As an extension to my previous predictions I would also like to add a Justice Society Cartoon (Which I doubt will happen but sounds really cool.)
