If GL and Superman both bomb the chances of this JLA movie even happening will be slim to none.

I really think the JLA movie will flop if they have two actors playing Batman in the same year, or even a year later.

Well it's going to be weird having two Superman, Batman, GL, Flash and WW since these are the ones right now aiming for their own individual franchises. I can deal with it, as a comic book fan, it's easier to accept two alternate realities if you will. The non-comic book fan is the one that may be going "WTF?" since what happens within the JLA film won't have any affect on the individual character film and vice versa with their individual films. Superman may be dating Lois in one and not the other for example, not to mention different actors on the same roles

It seems DC may be trying too hard to differentiate themselves from Marvel as opposed to doing what works and what fans want. Like Mossy suggested, maybe they're embarrassed of being accused of copying Marvel

Anyway, at the end of the day I'll be front and center for all of it.

Marvel isn't going to load it's Post-Avengers with multiple heroes but it's still the same universe.  RDJ is playing Tony in both films.  What DC is doing here is lame and, yes, confusing for anybody who doesn't read news like this on a regular basis.  (I'm getting a headache already imagining this likely conversation with my father...)

Besides, wouldn't it be cheaper in the long run hiring one actor for both franchises? We're talking not only Superman, Batman and Green Lantern but Flash and Wonder Woman as well.  OK , maybe a Martian Manhunter solo film won't happen but...

Another question, how do you think they'll handle the "sausage party" issue?  Lois? Oh look, another duplicated character...

You know, having three different women play Catwoman in the 1960s Batman series wasn't what spelled its doom.  I don't think that having different actors as Supes and Bats is that big a deal.  Ever watch a soap opera?

But, yes, if they could tie-in the story lines at least, that would be a big boon.  Or, leave Superman and Batman out of it altogether.  They weren't in Brave and Bold #28 or JLA #1.  It was Flash, GL, WW, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter.

BTW, I happen to have the never-aired JLA TV pilot (with David Ogden Stiers as J'onn J'onzz).  They can't do worse than that.

I don't think this is such a bad idea.  However, I have serious doubts it will ever happen.  I never believe a movie is going to happen until I see a trailer....

I waited twenty years for a Green Hornet movie.  And I liked it!  I'm still waiting for another Doc Savage flick...

You know what, as much as I think continuity would be cool, I think I'd be happy so long as they make a damn good movie & if it wasn't set in the same universe as the other characters if it was a great movie I'd be able to look past that personally.  No matter what movie is made somebody is going to be pissed about it, so it'll be interesting to see how it takes shape.  Personally I don't think this movie is going to take off, but we'll see.  I think they're waiting to see how the Avengers will do.

millean 3/31/2011 7:46:05 AM

This movie is going to be so huge and be such a big hit that the studio will change it's mind and spinn off each character into it's own individual flick, in continuity.  (If I repeat that enough, then it will come true, right?)

But like some of you have said, just make a good movie, and none of us will really care.

Another thing lost in all of this, is what about the rights to Superman?  I don't think the character will ever leave DC, but the courts could really screw up movie rights and such,

AmbyWarhol 3/31/2011 7:47:28 AM

I don't understand why this is a problem. They already have multiple versions of the characters in comic form and in the various animations.  Specifically, each animation by WB/DC has depicted a different version of their heroes and nobody minds that.  Why should the film medium be any different in execution than the others?  

Tevii 3/31/2011 7:49:53 AM

Warner Bros. should really stop trying to stand so far apart from Marvel.
It doesnt make them a ripoff of of a company to do the movies correctly like Marvel has been doing.

With Disney now owning Marvel, that just means more money to make movies 'the marvel way" and if Warner doesnt get their head out of the ir butts, they will never catch up.

The stand alone idea is fine with me, but the average viewer will just get confused and turned off. 

Keep doing this and you'll need a Crisis on Infininte Earths movie to clean up the mess
