Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie
I think John Carter was a fantastic movie, aside from an overly cluttered plot and weakly paced opening. I don't agree at all that Stanton was a failure as a live-action director. I think the film's failure had more to do with the new Disney regime not supporting the project and giving it minimal promotion, and maybe with some editing problems in those opening scenes. Stanton did great work and I hope the film's reputation doesn't ruin his chances of doing more.
I haven't seen the film and wasn't intending to offer a view on its merits. My point was simply that I believe that Stanton's insistence on filming it in the same way as he would have done an animated movie proved to be expensive and problematic for the studio.
