I agree with a lot of these. Barry Allen, Wonder Woman, Black Panther, Deadpool and Doctor Strange are the movies I'm pushing for at the moment.

@Lvenger: Thank you.

I'm pushing for those guys too, plus Hawkman, Green Arrow, Luke Cage, and War Machine. With Barry Allen, after his movie, I think they should add Wally West.

Here's a question: Do you think Nathan Fillion would've done a better job as Hal Jordan than Ryan Reynolds? I do. They should recast Hal with Nathan Fillion in the sequel, and add John Stewart.

@CaptainLantern76: What does he look like? He did sound like a good Hal Jordan but Kevin Conroy wouldn't make for a good live action Batman if you catch my drift. Admittedly Ryan Reynolds was playing a role he couldn't successfully portray. The guy has range, he can do comedy roles as well as hard hitting roles. But he couldn't play Hal Jordan at all. So he does need to be replaced as does Carol Danvers IMO. I don't want to see Gossip Girl in a GL film anytime soon.

@CaptainLantern76: I see. I don't see a sense of cockiness or arrogance about him but given his past performances, he could make for a good Hal Jordan. I'm not totally sure though.

@Lvenger: Hello, I'm back. Sorry it's been so long. I've been busy.

Anyone, here's another question: Who do you think should be the main villain in the Justice League movie?

Posted by Lvenger

@CaptainLantern76: I've heard that they're taking a New 52 approach with the movie and might be making Darkseid the villain. But if it were up to me, to steer clear of DC being seen as copying Marvel's Avengers film, I'd make the threat that brings the League together more Earth based. Like say Vandal Savage or someone like that. But the thing is DC do cosmic alien threats really well. There are countless alien races that would suit a Justice League origin movie. However, doing an alien race thing might be seen as copying the Avengers. Have you heard all the latest news about a JL movie?

@Lvenger: I think I've heard some of the latest news. Well, alien invasion is out of the question, but so is the Legion of Doom. So....Brainiac should the main antagonist of the first film, and the founding members should be Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Hal Jordan, Barry Allen, Aquaman....and Cyborg. The only hero they should have to introduce in the movie is Cyborg. In the sequel, the White Martians are awakened from their sleep and invade Earth, so Martian Manhunter requests the help of the League. New members are Martian Manhunter, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Atom (Ray Palmer), Hawkman, and Captain Marvel.

Then, the 3rd film should be a two-parter and have Darkseid as the main antagonist. The end of part 1 shows him winning and the heroes badly injured. New members are John Stewart, Firestorm, Zatanna, and Hawkgirl. Part 2 begins with them recovering and preparing for a rematch, now with the new members. But Darkseid unleashes Doomsday, who battles Superman. In the end, Darkseid is defeated, but Superman dies from his wounds. It's a bittersweet ending.

@CaptainLantern76: Wow that's an ambitious pitch. But I see you haven't heard the other bit of news. DC is doing a reverse Marvel. If you're wondering what I'm going on about, basically DC are setting up a DC Cinematic universe with Man of Steel in 2013, then next apparently is a Lobo movie (which has been planned and produced for a while so they say) and then in 2015-2017, there will be a Justice League film. From that, DC will make individual films like a rebooted Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash etc. It's strange but DC don't want to be seen copying Marvel.

There's a thread on here that has a lot of info about it in case you don't take my word for it: http://www.comicvine.com/justice-league-of-america/65-31815/proof-that-the-justice-league-movie-will-be-based-on-the-new-52/92-682766/

@Lvenger: I read the thread and let me say this: Copying Marvel is a mistake, but just jumping into the film is a bigger mistake.

I'm making a blog about ideas for the universe soon, and one of them is: BUILD! UP! Phase one of the DC Movie Universe should be this - Man of Steel, Batman reboot, Green Lantern reboot, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Man of Steel 2, then Justice League. But Lobo seems like a good idea.

I think for the Batman reboot they just ditch the origin story and have it as a flashback. I want the Joker as the main antagonist, with Scarecrow and Riddler as secondary antagonists. That would nice. Scarecrow and Riddler as Joker's henchmen. It's a dream come true....

Posted by Lvenger

@CaptainLantern76: Interesting. I'll keep an eye out for it when you post it. And I completely agree with what you've said. Unfortunately Marvel came up with the build up approach first so if DC did it, it would seem like a cheap move on their part. It's sad but that's how it will happen. And if you've heard the news about the next Arkham game being a prequel, they're including the entire Justice League in that as well. Same as in the Injustice game. They're trying to promote awareness of the entire Justice League, not individual League members.

Also regarding Green Lantern, they might not be rebooting it. Ryan Reynolds might be back as Hal Jordan in the Justice League film. Apparently the events in the Green Lantern film will be referenced but Hal will be 'more serious' this time. If this turns out to be true, that won't be good news at all.

@Lvenger: Justice League? In Arkham City prequel? YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

And if they really want to be different, then have the Legion of Doom as the antagonists instead.

My lineup right now is: Lex Luthor, Joker, Sinestro, Captain Cold, Cheetah, Black Manta, Riddler, Scarecrow, Bizarro, Mirror Master, Captain Boomerang, and the leader in this incarnation: Brainiac.

Posted by Lvenger

@CaptainLantern76: Full of classics. I like that. But getting together 7 actors to play the Justice League is hard enough. Getting another 11 (going by your list) actors to play the villains would be a costly venture suffice to say. Not to mention there being too many screen presences.

I agree with Flash, Wonder Woman, Dr. Strange, Luke Cage, Aquaman, & possibly Green Arrow. I think guys like Panther and Captain Marvel should be in a movie, but not have their own. I like She-Hulk, but I don't think she could work in her own movie. Same with Iron Fist.

Posted by CaptainLantern76

@TheCannon: I forgot to mention this on the list, but here was the angle I was going for: She-Hulk debuts in the Incredible Hulk 2, and then she gets her own spinoff - let me add that.

Okay. I think she could be in a second Hulk movie, then Avengers 2, but just don't see her in her own film.

Posted by CaptainLantern76

@TheCannon: That's another way to go

Posted by joewell

The only one's i agree with are Aqauman, Deadpool, and Moonknight

Luke Cage should get a movie with Iron Fist if anything, but i don't know if they could really have they're own, not enough villains

She Hulk should just appaere in the next Hulk, and some after. I don't think she should have her own for the reason IF and LC shouldn't

Most of those Dc characters are probly gonna be in the Justice League movie

Aaaand i don't know enogh about the others to say anything

Deadpool is already being made,we'll probably have more news after The Wolverine.

Great list,Cap.

A lot of good choices of characters whom deserve their own feature movies.

Who that hell call Hawkman useless? I am missing something that i should know ?

Edited by CaptainLantern76

@vitalius: Srry for the late reply.

Once upon a time, Hawkman suffered from 'Superfrienditis' like Aquaman still does.

@captainlantern76:

What?

ok i get that he had million origins so make one of complicated character and his rogue gallery isnt that knowed as.

But he has wings

and a mace

Posted by CaptainLantern76

@vitalius: But people who didn't read comics yet watched Superfriends used to say that he sucked and was useless.
