Who do you think should have their own movie,if anyone, before the Justice League movie? I would guess the Flash. Even though his comic is awesome and Geoff Johns is making him a BA, I don't think the general population will be able to shake the current image of Aquaman that they have in mind. Wonder Woman would be good, but lady super movies don't generally do as well. Thoughts?

#2 Posted by Redberry (797 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't see how a Flash movie would work out. He can run pretty fast, but how much actions can be put into it? Most superheroes movies required a lot of fighting, but it's hard to see an opponent exchanging blows with someone like the Flash, unless his opponent is someone like Zoom, and they slow down their fight. Aquaman's movie wouldn't work out either. Filming in an aquatic location is more expensive than on land, and movies took place in the sea don't often appeal to the masses. I just don't see them willing to take that risk. Cyborg is a possibility, but I don't think Hollywood would be willing to invest 100 mil dollars movie to a black superhero. It's possible but very unlikely. That would leave Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Hawkman, and Martian Manhunter. Outside of comic fans, Martian Manhunter and Hawkman are not that well known, regardless of what anyone says. Green Arrow would work, but a superhero movie on a guy without any superpower is very unlikely. That would leave Wonder Woman. I feel like she's the most well-known female in DC. She's the only one in the trinity to not have her own movie in recent years, so I think and hope for a Wonder Woman movie.

John Stewart!

Hardly any of DC's characters are interesting enough for a theatrical film. Why do you think we keep getting Batman, and Superman?

A John Stewart movie would be cool. He is the best guy for a GL movie anyway.

As a matter of fact, DC shouldn't go the rout Marvel did for that very reason. How the hell would a MMH movie turn out? He is a boring character. Aquaman is lame, no matter how good his comic is right now. And adapting Flash would be hard.

They should just Make a JL movie without building anything up with prior movies.

Characters that do deserve their own movie are:

Wonder Woman

Batwoman

John Stewart

Swamp Thing horror movie.

Outside of those characters, DC characters are lame for theaters. And this is coming from a fan of DC comics.

With the recent box office failure, I don't think they would touch the Green Lantern franchise for a while though. I could see a reboot 5 years down the line like The Hulk.

In all seriousness though, Batman is a household name, so he's more like an exception. I just don't see a Blockbuster movie on an archer-type character, maybe they can prove me wrong.

Could happen. It's not likely though. I have heard many rumors but most of them are not true. Unless there is a confirmation, I wouldn't put too much weight into it. Even if the people involved in the project wanted to, they still need financial backing from a studio. I don't know if WB owns the right to the GL franchise, but they usually don't continue an underperformed series that often. 20th Century Fox is more willing to take more risks. I could see them pick up the reboot. With so many superheroes movies to choose from, rather than a reboot, it's more likely that studios just choose some other superheroes to make movies out of.

I would like in this order:

  • Wonder Woman
  • Flash
  • Batman (Both Nolan's trilogy and Man of Steel are confirmed to not be in a Justice League movie's continuity.)
  • Superman
  • John Stewart (if possible? I mean, we just got Hal a year ago, But I'd much rather have Jon then Hal.)
  • Green Arrow (As long as non-comic books fans stop saying he is a copy of Hawkeye)
  • Aquaman
  • Cyborg (Although I'd prefer Martian Manhunter be a Leaguer and not him, he just feels really out of place)
  • Black Canary?

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

maybe pull a Feige and go a la Avengers - We had Hulk, IronMan, IronMan 2, Thor and Captain.

They could do something like, Green Lantern, do a sequel for it and introduce either Flash or Wondie, which seem to be the harder ones to pull right now, and then do like they did with Hawkeye and Black Widow (seems to work with female characters) and expand on the JLA movie. Then go ahead with Man of Steel, an Aquaman movie and maybe a Batman reboot right before the JLA, and since everyone already knows the character, just set him apart from Nolan's and make it a ladder for the JLA movie and also to introduce MM or Cyborg (whichever goes into the team).

Then the JLA movie comes and you expand a lot on Flash and Wondie, give them their own movies right afterwards, and then bam. I think

Reboot Superman (after Man of Steel, bring back Cavill if he's decent, if not, find someone else) or at least tie in the sequel as it's developed alongside the other movies. Have him fight Brainiac to begin tying into enemies from outer space. After Brainiac's defeat, have Supes gain a log of some sort that informs him Brainiac's visited another planet before Earth: Mars. Cut to credits.

I'm actually going to say that rebooting Batman isn't an absolute necessity. Gotham has always been the darkest, grittiest, city in the DC universe. It's villains, always the closest to real, since they're the most human. All the other guys are fighting aliens, people who have morphed into real monsters, mythological creatures, etc. Flash is the only other guy who fights normal people on a regular basis. And that's because when he's NOT fighting normal guys, he's fighting talking Gorillas. So if you just have Christian Bale as Batman come back, it really could work fine.

Flash COULD work. But it depends on how he's portrayed. If they just portray him as running at superspeed, fine. That COULD work. If you really want to make a decent movie, have him gaining his powers and then showing him noticing by people falling into slow motion around him. Have him deal with the fact he's suddenly living a lot faster than everyone around him. Bring in Gorilla Grodd. Get him out of the way. After his defeat, imply Grodd's reasons to attack Flash's city was because Grodd's was destroyed by some kind of green alien. Don't show alien, just silhouette. Credits.

Wonder Woman could be a tough sell, but have her get off the island as soon as possible and arrive first in Gotham. Have her attacked by thugs, she dispatches them, and have one sneak up behind her, only for said thug to vanish into the shadows before he can attack. Show silhouette of Batman, move on. Have her tracking some kind of criminal from Themyscira. Don't know a lot about her villains, so I can't say who. Have her movie be the one that REALLY ties them together. Track through Gotham, to Metropolis, say hi to Superman, to Keystone City, etc. Don't have any of the other heroes on screen for more than a moment. Don't even give them dialogue if possible.

Aquaman is another tough sell. Don't really know what you could do with him.

Green Lantern: Don't give Ryan Reynolds another shot. He's Deadpool, leave him alone. Bring in someone else to play Hal Jordan in a reboot, or move onto any other Earth Lantern EXCEPT Guy Gardner. Hate that guy. Have it placed more in space, and have a part of the movie where he's sent to investigate a problem on Mars, only to find a completely destroyed city in the middle of a crater. Have him locate some residue and imply that it's from a teleportation.

Finally, bring in the Justice League. Have Martian Manhunter make his debut, explain that Gorilla Grodd's city was destroyed by his teleportation tech, which was damaged in Brainiac's attack. Have Brainiac come back, stronger than ever, from upgrades, along with a horde of robots. Cue the explosions. Credits.

Wonder Woman needs a movie pretty badly. Although she is an iconic character, the general public knows remarkably little about her. People will no doubt have heard of Wonder Women, and many would be able to pick out a picture of her, but mention Amazons or the Olympian gods and you are met with blank stares. I mentioned the she is in Superman's league of strength and speed to a non-comic reading friend, and he didn't believe me.

She needs a movie so people can be educated on Wonder Women. It's sad such a classic character is so obscure.

#33 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

That NEED a movie:

  1. Flash. If possible, give him two like Iron Man got.
  2. Wonder Woman. It's been on ice for way too long.
  3. Green Lantern. It doesn't necessarily have to be a reboot, but if they're doing a continuation from the last movie, introduce a new Earth-based GL (John Stewert or Kyle Rayner, specifically). A) to introduce more variety, and B) to have one used on the GLC and the other on the JLA.

That wouldn't hurt to have one:

  1. Superman. We all know who he is, so an introduction wouldn't be entirely necessary. He can easily be mentioned/have cameos in the other spin-offs.
  2. Batman. We all know who he is, and would be an awesome "surprise" in the JLA film.
  3. Aquaman. He can easily be introduced in the JLA film itself. A spin-off with him to start out with would be a tad risky, so it's best that they test the waters with him in the JLA (pun totally intended).
  4. Martian Manhunter. Again, he can be easily introduced in the JLA film so long as the threat is alien in origin (Bruce Timm's JL anyone?). I'd love to see him in a solo-film, but I doubt that he'd ever get one, unfortunately. If JLA's the only shot of him to be in the movies, they need to abuse the hell out of that.
