 With this decision what DC/WB needs is what Marvel at Disney and also Marvel at Fox have: a knowledgeable overseer to coordinate this film and the DC movieverse. I nominate writer/producer/director David S. Goyer. He knows comics and is already involved with the movies, having written the stories for the Nolan Batman's and Man of Steel.

This is a dumb idea. While I agree with not needing another orign movie for Batman, here are the problems that come from rolling out a Justice League movie ahead of individual films.

  1. WB is betting that Man of Steel will be a hit, and while I hope it is. That's not a given. What if it flops?
  2. WB flopped with Green Lantern, but they are content to let Reyonlds come back for a JL movie?
  3. In 2015 you are going to cram a JL film that will feature Wonder Woman, Flash, a new Batman (Bale aint coming back for this) and along with Superman, and GL and try to have 1) WW, Flash, New Batman try to establish themselves a bit, while having to reestablish GL to fit him more inline with whatever Cavil is going to bring to Superman. The reason why 'Avengers' worked is because with the exception of Mark Ruffalo's Hulk; Evans, RDJ, Sam Jackson, Scarllet Johanson, Liam Helmsworth had already established their characters in the previous films (hell even Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye cameo established what was coming in the Avengers). In Avengers it was all about blending their characters into the fabric of that world. Even at 3 hours you are going to have to have to spend sometime establishing 4 Characters (including whoever the villian will be) and I don't mean in the context of origin, but rather allowing these actors to get bring something new/interesting/fresh to their roles. Doing the model this way almost garauntee's that Wonder Woman is going to be done poorly, whoever is udner the Cowl for Batman is going to just do a bad Bale impression, and we will probably get a Flash that's going to be comic relief (like in the God AWFUL JL script that was floating around.

If WB wants to win the war, instead of a ticket battle, thety would scrap this and adapt the Marvel Model. Give Wonder Woman, and Flash a movie so the actors playing them could create something in the roles to build on. Give GL a reboot (perferably without Ryan Reynolds), and use Batman like the Hulk and save him for the movie, or better yet maybe make Batman the Nick Fury that cameos in enough of the other films so that by the time JL the actor playing him can set himself apart for Keaton/Bale.

The only way this works is to tie what is already out there together and keep it simple. MOS is Superman/HC in JL and Hal Jordan/RR is GL. Nolan's Batman can exist in the JL universe. Use the events of Nolan's trilogy as a dream, flashback or something then it doesn't matter what actor portrays Bats. Or maybe it was Superman who saved Batman at the end of TDKR; Supes has had his secret watch on Batman all along and chose to intervene in this situation. That way it's the same Batman/Bruce Wayne just being portrayed by a different actor. It works with James Bond and can work here too if you get the right actor.

No Hawkman, Aquaman (he's lame and talking to fish isn't going to help you defeat Darkseid or Doomsday), Flash, Martian Manhunter (he's just an amalgam of Superman and Batman and seriously - your weakness is fire?). Bring in Wonder Woman and focus on her back story and the reason why they're assembling as a team. Start with Supes, Bats, GL and Wonder Woman; keep it simple and leaving fans wanting more.

Sequels bring in Hawkman (Hawkgirl would work too - I mean WW can't make sandwiches for everyone, JK), Flash, Martian Manhunter if you must, Cyborg, Aquaman if you must, etc. I'd like to see Doomsday as the villain for the sequel which could give it an Empire Strikes Back kind of feel.

I hope they figure it out and do it well. If they do, then studios might want to forgo releasing any movies during the summer of 2015 because it will be ruled by The Avengers 2 and JL.

 While I am happy to see a JL movie, like everyone else, I'm wary as how they will make it work. All this feels like, it could go the X-movies route with bad continuity and plot holes galore. They don't necessarily have to go the Marvel route but with MOS coming out soon, how will they explain a different guy in the suit? They need to maybe shoot a few new scenes in Man of Steel,  establishing the possibility of a Justice League or at least that there are other heroes out there and then build it up from there. 

Man of Steel should be DC's start off point.

Actually, Aquaman could be an incredibly awesome character on the big screen.  Most underapreciated superhero ever.  He rules 3 / 4 of the planet!  Lots of cool aquatic effects could be just as spectaular as anything you can imagine for a Green Lantern.  Maybe the water scenes in the upcoming Avatar sequel will get everyone thinking this was.  :)

So what is the status of the WW movie?  I thought there was one in development, but they just haven't announced anything about it yet.  Guess it is one of those coming after the JL movie.  Of all the characters that need establishing, this one is the most important, and the one I'm worried about.

As for releasing the movie the same year as Avengers 2, to quote the great Darth Vader... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not because of a possible box office hit (shouldn't be the case), but because all of the Avengers 2 vs JL fanboy arguing will be unbearable.  It was bad enough for TDKR vs Avengers 1!  :)



Finally, this is directed to the Mania webmaster.

No Nolan Batman in this JL continuity. Nolan said this wasn't a DC universe Batman. If it was DCU, then Supes could have come in at the end and chucked the bomb into space. The End.

Not only that but Bane held Pittsburgh....uh...I mean Gotham, hostage for what? 6 months? If Nolan's universe was a shared DCU, you think the other superheroes would have sat around and let this happen?

Do us a favor and erase all of the Nolan crap and start a new fresh Batman that doesn't scream like he has something up his ass and is actually a good detective.
