When will DC promote obscure characters like Marvel?

Currently Marvel is planning to give Characters like Ant-man and the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Do you think that DC will promote obscure characters after the JL movie like Marvel? or will it just stick to the Justice League characters?

JLA all the way. They'll play it safe unless GotG or AntMan are hits.

Just by having the JL movie they may be having characters equally obscure as Ant-Man to most people (that is, if they use Martian Manhunter and Cyborg.)

@eternal19: Marvel didn't do a thing till Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and the Avengers all had very successful movies

I know, thats why I said after DC makes the JL movie. I know Warner Bros wont risk putting an Obscure character on screen before They've had successes with its top characters

Instead of taking risks with less popular properties, dc can just play it safe and just do more batman movies more frequently.

@eternal19: You know they are making a Justice League Dark movie and I heard a Booster Gold tv show.

I think that the reason why Marvel's going to GotG is because all of their other well-known properties are owned by companies or already in development.

In defense of DC, they have put out some 'obscure' movies like Jonah Hex, Watchmen, and the Veritgo/Wildstorm stuff, but they most-likely won't go to more obscure properties until their more well-known characters are already out there. When the JL movies and maybe Teen Titans are in place, then only will they move on.
