A justice league can be good, as long as we have people who actually care for the source material.

2013: superman (which they are)
2014: flash
swamp-thing
2015: JLA
GL2
2016: Hawkman
2017: Wonder Woman
2018: Aquaman
flash 2 or GL3
I hope WB put some type of plan in motion for a Justice League movie. I'm sure there's alot of pressure on Zack Synder to deliver a great Superman movie. If it bombs, it could set things back like Superman Returns.

I've been reading opinions about that as well, and most of it suggest that Christopher Nolan take the helm of a Justice League movie. If Nolan did do a Justice League film, I imagine it would be in stark contrast to The Avengers as Nolan's Batman films have a darker tint and less comical tone than most other super hero movies.

Cool poster. (Of course there's no WAY a Justice League Movie poster would hide Batman way in the back like that. They should swap Batman and Martian Manhunter's positions. )

Totally. I'm glad they put a shirt on Martian Manhunter as I don't think shirtless, suspenders and booty shorts are a good look.

Cool poster.

I don't think I'm familiar with Bridget Regan's work.

I've seen that before! I've also made a JLA film poster, i'll try and show it to you guys! Also, I think the trinity in the JLA film would be batman, superman, and green lantern insted of wonder woman.

If they made a Justice League film Reynolds, Bale and Cavill will not be part of it.

They shouldn't bother with a Justice League movie. It's not like it has any chance of being nearly as good as The Avengers.

I think it is POSSIBLE to do so. I just don't think those that are making the decisions have any idea HOW to do so.

You're probably right about Bale since he's not interested in a Batman not being overseen by Nolan, however since Nolan is one of the people on Superman it wouldn't be far fetched to think he'd be a part of it if Nolan was attached. With Reynolds it all just depends, I think it would be a waste to not cast him again as Hal.

As far as Cavill, has he stated somewhere he's not interested in the Justice League, or that there's not any nods to other superheroes in the Man of Steel movie? I'd say until Man of Steel hits theaters or the actor states it himself, it's entirely possible he could lead a JL cast.

Sure it has a chance, and if TPTB worried less about special affects and more about the story and characters [they should've learned this by now with the mediocre showings of Spawn and GL] then it could completely blow Avengers out of the water.

The things that would make or break a JL film for me would be the interactions between the Flash and GL as well as Superman and Batman and later on including WW into the Trinity. Of course they'd have to show just how badass Aquaman really is and maybe Geoff could talk them into using the talking shit about Aquaman gimmick he's using in the monthly series.

As far as connecting movies and who they'd face, I've always thought the Starros would be the best. Make an Aquaman film and at the end have him find a Starro and get it off of some random beach bum only to be found by GL flying overhead. Then maybe in a Flash film have something on the news or a newspaper in the background about "mysterious starfish with eye found" as the headline.

Considering the fact that GL was an horrible failure, I don't think WB wants to have any remaining part of it back on their hands.

Even after Spawn failed there was talks about a sequel, Todd McFarland just invested in too many baseballs tied to juiced pro-athletes. And even the Fantastic Four wasn't quite as good as people had hoped and it got a sequel. WB should just learn not to invest as much money on promoting a movie as they do making it. That was just stupid every way you looked at it. Given more time and a better villain choice, GL could've been the movie they wanted it to be.

And WB still went ahead with a GL animated series, so I doubt GL is viewed as untouchable like some may think.

They had plenty of time if they would have been smarter about it all. Deciding to make the costume entirely CG was expensive and unnecessary. It also needed a better script and direction.

Studio's will always talk about sequels, most of the time their just making up excuses.

Also the GL Animated Series only happened because of the movie being in pre-production.If they went into the future and discovered that GL was destined to be a disaster, then I'm sure they would have pulled the plug immediately.

I think they could've saved a ton of money using a cloth style suit with green screen lines in certain areas to pull off the effect they were going for. It was certainly too much work just for a costume. But I thought it was cool with the lines and all.

And I'm not saying I'd give GL a sequel before a JL movie, just a guest appearance at the end of another movie leading toward the JL, with maybe a GL sequel happening after.

I thought the script had it's moments, but it could've been tweaked in areas. I would've picked somebody more in tune with the comics and the characters to direct the film. It seemed the original premise for the film was better IMHO with Legion as the villain and cameos by Clark Kent and Guy Gardner. But that's just me....

Still think a JLA movie would suck for the same reasons I thought the Avengers sucked. They could make it successful but it would be a real task to make it good.

I didn't see the Avengers. Mainly because an Ant Man movie was supposed to be out before the Avengers and Pym and the Wasp were supposed to be among the cast instead of the powerless Hawkeye and Black Widow. But after Disney bought Marvel Ant Man was put back and now I'll probably never see an Ant Man movie. Bastards. That would have made the Avengers so much more badass in my eyes, and moreso like the comics. I don't like Hawkeye being a SHIELD agent before becoming an Avenger. He was a criminal first damnit!

The only way a JL movie would suck is if they used too many 2nd and 3rd stringers. You would need at least two out of the Trinity, and then at least characters people would want to see in a film. I would try my best to not use characters too similar to the Avengers cast, so no Green Arrow or Steel. Or they could throw in about ten Leaguers or so and just have a few of them be background characters with only a few lines.... IDK.

Well it took Marvel 6 movies (including The Avengers) Iron Man 1 and 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and Captain America.
Lets start with Green Lantern, then Man of Steel, Flash (GL cameo, Superman mentioned, Jon Jonnz cameo- he is a detective), Wonder Woman (Aquaman cameo Amazons and Atlantis could work together in a film), reboot Batman (horrible idea so close after the Nolan movies), and then the Justice League movie. It is possible, highly unlikely that WB would bank that much money on it seeing as it would not be ready till about 2015/6.

GL flopping, pretty much closed the door for future non-Batman Superman superheroes to get their movies.

Doesn't help that every adaption outside of those two has also flopped.

Well, you might think that and we GL fans might like to play along, but the Trinity of the DC is an established concept/term. They even did a series on them.



Those 3 were traditionally the corps of the JLA that picked the others. GL is about even with Flash for the 4th or 5th spot.

Also, even when spawn failed, they made an animated series, and that was a massive success, and with ghost rider, the first film was a falioure, but that got a sequal and GR2 is proberbly one of my favourate films of all time! Annother example is the punisher, the 1989 version was a massive falioure, but about 15 years later that got a well recived reboot, even though warzone didn't go down as well (I loved warzone myself, but that's just me) and they're talking about yet annother reboot! Same with daredevil, that got bad reviews (even though that' on of my favourate films ever) but about 10 years later, they're talking about a reboot!

I know that, but it just seems like they'd have GL as a replacement for WW in the trinity seeing he got a film first. Plus I can't realy imagine a film where batman, superman, and wonder woman are the main character, and GL in second place.

Nope. Me too. Jigsaw was a bit overdone, but the story was good and Punisher himself was cool.

Yeah, popularity-wise he has unseated Diana anyway.
