"A 6ft5 athletic guy in a Weta made Batman costume?
I don't know if it would have been so laughable."
*Yawn* A shitty movie with a strong guy in a cool Batman costume is still a shitty movie. Nothing about the Justice League film impressed me and I'm glad it's shelved for the time being.
I don't think they missed the train. I think it's a good idea to wait on this one. It's more important to get a good film out than to beat Marvel to the punch. Justice League is a step up from Avengers anyway. So what if it comes out later? Infact DC should follow in Marvel's footsteps for a while and crank out some more individual superhero films before trying to introduce them all at once in Justice League. Shelving JL and starting up GL is a good idea. Marvel's kicking ass on screen. They've paved a decent trail for comic films. No shame in following suit. At least for a while.
One place where DC has a good chance at being original, they should put out the very first female superhero film that doesn't absolutely suck. They messed up with Catwoman and Marvel also messed up with Elektra. If DC could introduce Wonder Woman in a film and make it good, it would be, at least a good time, at most revolutionary. I think Wonder Woman deserves to be in a film with the scope of the new Superman or Batman films.
