Do you think a Justice League movie could be made by 2015?

#1 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6253 posts) - - Show Bio

The current story for the Justice League movie is that if Man Of Steel is successful, one will be made by the year 2015. Instead of taking the Marvel approach, they would do the exact opposite, starting with a JL movie and then breaking off into separate films based on the members. Warner has stated that they scrapped the JL script written by Will Beall, news which may make a much better movie but will further delay the film. Do you think Warner could make one by 2015? Do you think that without the separate movies first it could turn out as a bad film?

Should be possible to have a JL movie by 2015. For 2015, have a Batman movie, Superman movie and JL movie in the same year.

Having a Man of Steel sequel, a Batman movie and a JL movie in the same year would be the best year ever.

To have more time, maybe plan the 3 movies for 2016. Batman fights Desaad and Kanto, Superman fights Kalibak and Steppenwolf, then the JL fights Darkseid's elite.

I personally think as long as a Batman reboot is made before the JL movie, it should turn out fine. I imagine Warner would try to make as many Batman films in between the other DC movies based on his popularity right now. If they are going to reboot the Green Lantern franchise for the JL films, they should do it as soon as possible to set it apart from the 2011 version.

Said it multiple times now, even if man of steel is a massive success (first superman movie i might actually enjoy) i highly doubt DC is gonna be able to pull off a JL movie. Face it all they got in terms of movies it batman and superman...and a green lantern movie that causes people to inject screwdrivers into their cerebral cortex in an effort to carve out the memory it actually existed.

MMH and flash are characters that would need to be crammed into the JL movie cause theres no way they could have movies of their own, cause i highly doubt other than comicbook readers anyone is gonna watch a movie about a speedster (knew i'd eventually see marvel fight another company for one of their characters...just never thought it would be quicksilver) i dont see people throwing money at a movie about a guy moving very fast. And then theres wonder woman the studio would have to work their ass off to get male viewers into that movie, cause unless she's wearing a string bikini and hacking **** to pieces its gonna be hard to market the movie towards the general audience about a movie about an amazon princess raised on an island of dead victemized women who hate men.

Should be easy to make solo movies of Supes, Bats, WW, Flash and Green Lantern.

I'd like to, at least, see a Wonder Woman movie before a JL movie.

If the Ant Man movie makes money, dc will probably become bolder in trying out more of their properties in the movies.

Of course Man of Steel and a Batman movie could be a massive successes. I think if they reboot Green Lantern correctly by making it more serious and an epic sci-fi story than a action-comedy, it could work. A Wonder Woman movie should be a mythological epic, sort of like the parts of Thor that took place on Asgard but with a more intricate storyline. It shouldn't try to aim directly for the male audience: I don't want her just to be the unimportant attractive character. I don't think audiences would buy a Flash or Aquaman movie, so they should introduce them in JL (if they use Aquaman) and Martian Manhunter's introduction should tie into the plot of the film or a sequel.

They should have

1- Man of Steel

2-Batman

3-Green Lantern (if they reboot, which they should)

4-Wonder Woman

5-JL

A Green Lantern movie can be done like star wars. The green lanterns are like Jedi and they fight the yellow lanterns who are like sith. Maybe let the lanterns learn some kung fu too to make the fights look better. Wonder Woman can be done like the percy jackson movies.

Why not just do a Superman trilogy. He needs it.

A superman-only trilogy would work really well, but I think Warner is going to try to make as much money as possible after Avengers made over 2,000,000,000. At least they scraped Will Beall's script- it shows that they actually care about the quality of the movie.

@moon_bat_87: Your movies need to be made as soon as possible.

#21 Posted by colonyofcells (2038 posts) - - Show Bio

A cyborg movie can be done like bionic man, plus armor, plus giant guns and other weapons.

#22 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6253 posts) - - Show Bio

Cyborg's backstory could make a really tragic and heartfelt movie, and then he's a giant robotic guy with missiles built into him blowing everything up.

The Nolan films are set in its own universe. That is why Batman needs its own reboot.

Am I the only one who really wants to see an Aquaman movie???

Anyway I think they should keep Ryan Reynolds as GL. He was the only good thing in the GL movie.. If they wanna add Green Arrow (who would be pretty awesome), Stephen Amell should get the role, he's a great actor IMO. Mila Jovovich can make a really decent WW, as for the rest... I don't really know. Superman would be the one from Man of Steel of course.

@the_red_viper: An Aquaman movie would be awesome and should be made! Also, I'm ok if they use Reynolds again because he wasn't what made that movie bad, it was the script and other various problems.

Warner brothers maybe is still waiting for the Namor movie to come out before deciding on an Aquaman movie.

#29 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6253 posts) - - Show Bio

They should make Aquaman first so if Marvel made a Namor movie it would seem like a ripoff to the general audience.

#30 Posted by The_Red_Viper (4167 posts) - - Show Bio

@rulerofthisuniverse: And also because an Aquaman movie has the potential of being goddamned awesome.

#31 Edited by colonyofcells (2038 posts) - - Show Bio

Warner Brothers is now more cautious bec they lost money on the flop Green Lantern movie. It could be years before we will ever see an Aquaman movie. Even Marvel don't seem to be in a hurry to do a Namor movie. Old tv pilot of Aquaman on cw also failed.

#32 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6253 posts) - - Show Bio

@the_red_viper: Now that I think about it, I really, really, really want to see an Aquaman movie right now.

#34 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6253 posts) - - Show Bio

@colonyofcells: I agree that they won't make one anytime soon, but it would be so cool if they did.

#35 Edited by JulieDC (893 posts) - - Show Bio

I think they should do a superman/batman movie first because it has never been done for live action and batman has been made to be so realistic that the general public may find it hard to see batman working alongside people with superpowers.

@juliedc: You have a really good point.

#37 Posted by MythiiC (52 posts) - - Show Bio

If they do a Justice League movie before any other JL members, I would want it to be the characters origin to how they got on earth, or how they became heroes - within that movie. I'm not talking about their powers, but how they got their actual identities e.g. The Flash.
It would be believable (to me) that Barry got his powers earlier, but he always helped around by being a blur, someone noone actually saw, up to a certain point which could be an invasion by darkseid. Similar to GL, he could have been off world, with his first public appearance to earth being helping the other heroes.
It'd be pretty cool if Man Of Steel left some seeds for Wonder Woman or Cyborg though, just by featuring Steve Trevor or Star Labs & Dr Stone...

It's possible, but they have to work really hard on it, really, really hard.

Can we do movies about other heroes that aren't Batman?

Flash is long overdue.
