Would a Mr Terrific movie be a success?

It should be better than Steels

Probably not since people don't really know him.

He is kinda unknown. I could see him in a TV show maybe.

Not if they cast Shaq as Mr Terrific.

It could make sense if they make JSA TV Series with Mr. Terrific as one of the main characters.

I don't think he's popular enough for a movie to be feasible. 

Not to mention America isn't ready for an atheist super hero.

No: Warner messes up everything but Batman, and their track record with him isn't really the best either.

Chiwetel Ejiofor  for Mr. Terrific or Aldis Hodge from the show Leverage. sam and dean from supernatural are atheist and they're hunters. so i think that an atheist  could work.

HELLS NO. his character sucks.

It could work but I don't see people giving it a chance. Even if he was well known he's not a frontline character and when non-frontline characters get more than a TV show......well see the movie Constantine.

@younggunna: Hollywood doesn't have a lot of faith in movies with a black lead so I doubt he would ever get a movie, but I don't think that would be the only thing holding him back from the big screen. As much as I dislike Hollywood's formulaic approach to superhero movies, the fact that Mr. Terrific doesn't have a notable villain like Superman or Batman is another thing working against him. I do feel that him being an Atheist shouldn't be viewed as a negative, especially when you take into account that it's a important part of his origin.

Don't get me wrong I would love to see Mr. Terrific receive some time to shine, so I feel a DC animated movie would be the perfect vehicle to introduce him (and many others for that matter) to more people and show what he is capable of.

A JSA movie or show with him as one of the main characters wouldn't be a bad idea.
