If they made a JLA movie do you think it would be any good. Why or why not. I am just curious on what your guys thoughts are. What directors would you think would do a good job? Also casting?

This has been done innumerable times.

Anyways, on-topic, it's a tossup. Even moreso than Avengers was. Marvel at least had a relatively stable setup of good and/or halfway decent movies backing Avengers up. DC has a lot of catch-up to do. Hopefully by the end of the 3-year hiatus, they've got a plan in motion.

Give it 10 years. We will either have enough time for a good build up or have the hype die and not get a JLA movie at all.

I'm betting we'll get it a little bit before then. If all the signs are right, DC's setting up for it. Given about.. 3-4 years to get solo movies done after the 3-year hiatus, that's about 6 years. So I want to say around 7 or 8 years, we'll get a JLA film.

I'm not sure DC is very hit and miss with movies. Man of Steel will probably be my deciding factor. If Superman's movie is sucessful than yes, if not than I can't say yes, because with Green Lantern sucking pretty hard I'm not confident they can make characters other than Batman sucessful on screen.

I hope they try to tie in Man of Steel to the Justice league movie,so it can be the beginning of a Shared Dc universe.Maybe around 2014 we shall see a trailer.

They're supposed to 'drop hints of a shared universe' or something in Man of Steel.

@ZombieBigfoot: I got to read more news.... What's this 3-year hiatus you talk about? Has Warner announced they'll be on hiatus?

#12 Posted by ogarza (124 posts) - - Show Bio

If this is gonna happen then there has to be a Batman rebooot right?

#13 Edited by _Zombie_ (10383 posts) - - Show Bio

@ssejllenrad: I think it was a news story awhile back on here. They're supposedly taking a 3-year break from making films after Man of Steel, if I remember reading right.

Edit: Ah, no, it was an SDCC announcement.

@BlueLantern1995: thats what people said about the avengers and look how it turned out. you cant say a movie sucks 3 years before it comes out

#20 Posted by jeanroygrant (20191 posts) - - Show Bio

They should make a Wonder Woman, Flash or Aquaman movie first.

#21 Posted by ratman19 (525 posts) - - Show Bio

@BlueLantern1995: just because DC has some powerful charecters doesnt mean that the movie will be bad. and didnt marvel have thor in the movie and hulk and there extremely powerful to.just because some previous movies were bad doesnt mean that this one isnt gonna be good. and you must not read justice league because the villians they fight require all there help.

#22 Posted by BradBrains (91 posts) - - Show Bio

sadly I doubt well ever see a JLA movie..

before we need to set up characters we care about. we need man of steel to be good, a good wonder woman women (which I know will never happen), and maybe the flash though im not sure how to coudl be done.

once all complete have them all fight dethstroke.

maybe make dick grayson the new batman for the new movies?

@BlueLantern1995: thanos is a retarded villian and a bunch of people are going to see avengers 2. and there are different ways you can do an invasion plot without it being just like the avengers.and when it comes out and it doesnt flop ill say i told you so. DC seems like its making there movies to be epics not just action-comedys.

#24 Posted by Jorgevy (5114 posts) - - Show Bio

I fear it may flop even if it's as awesome as the Avengers due to the whole nolanverse intelectual batman bandwagon fans not liking the different approach. Or it could actually be as sucessful, since it will probably be aimed at general movie goer who likes good action movies/super heroes

Can DC/WB make a good JL movie? Yes. Will they? I have my doubts. I think the bad films outnumber the good when it comes to DC, but lets make sure.

Good/Great

Superman (1978), Superman II (1980), Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Not so Good

Superman Returns (2006) and Watchmen (2009)

DC/WB Imprints: Constantine (2005)

Trash

Superman III (1983), Supergirl (1984), Superman IV (1987), Batman Forever (1995), Batman & Robin (1997), Steel (1997), Catwoman (2004), Jonah Hex (2010) and Green Lantern (2011)

DC/WB Imprints: The Losers (2010)

I enjoyed 7 out of 20 DC/WB films... Man of Steel is looking impressive, so maybe WB is getting their $h!t together. This is just my opinion.
