Oh, and what happened to discussions about a JL movie?
Is there anything more to discuss at the moment? I read that the Affleck rumors didn't pan out, that he turned them down. I haven't heard any other news since.
I had a thought the other day that a good way to make a JL movie distinct from The Avengers
is to do just the opposite of an origin story -- treat it more like an office drama with the team already in place and let the audience get to know them through their interactions and their work. Maybe use the common formula of having a character who's new to the team and serves as the audience surrogate for exposition -- Cyborg, maybe? I can see it having a West Wing
flavor -- a story about coworkers dealing with their clashing personalities and outlooks and engaging in witty interplay, yet also having to deal on a daily basis with crises of worldshaking importance and deep ethical dilemmas.
