I would add to it the fact that WB has been utterly unwilling to build a "universe" of highly successful films to serve as "lead ins" to JL as opposed to Marvel who has made hit after hit movie with solo characters first.
Fixed that for ya.
They don't want to make Wonder Woman. They made a Green Lantern movie that doesn't particularly lend itself to a shared universe. (Though to be fair, it doesn't rule it out, either-- but the point is they could have tried.) And they made three Batman movies whose nature utterly divorces the character from other superheroes.
The best we've gotten from ANY live-action DC property in the last thirty years was one line in the George Clooney movie.
They've chosen to dig their own hole.
