Wouldn't Cyborg be pretty much Arnold's Terminator on a superhero team?
More like Robocop.
So Cyborg will be flying around with a jetpack and fighting ninja robots?

How did you think Wayne survived the nuke?
I assumed he had time to prepare.
I think that's exactly right. What we were told was that the ejector seat or autopilot or whatever wasn't working and that he had to fly it out there manually with no means of escape. But just because he claimed that, that doesn't mean it was true. As I read it, he lied about that in order to fake his death -- he "prepared" for how to make it look like he died in the blast, when in fact he was able to jettison and fly the plane out on autopilot. After all, it's Chekov's Gun. We were told exactly how he could have flown the bomb out to sea and survived, so the logical conclusion is that that's what he did, and that his claim that he couldn't pull it off was simply a misdirect to set up his own apparent demise.

(Although that doesn't explain the epilogue in the cafe in Europe. Don't they have TV in Europe? Surely he'd still have one of the most recognizable faces in the world.)

As some have speculated, WB are looking at the success of Man of Steel before they commit to making the JL movie.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

Unless they've made another Green Lantern, I don't think the movie should have any trouble at the box office. Hint guys, there's a reason that The Dark Knight made so much money, and Green Lantern was a dud. It had lots to do with the quality of the film, generating good word of mouth and repeat business. If you're going to take pages from Marvel's book, just remember to take the page about making your movies good.

This just confirms the common sense, following GL, that many have had.

The good news is that unlike that first GL footage, MOS has not gotten any bad press right out of the gate. A problem GL never overcame followed by slow leaks that some suits were not happy with the delivered product. MOS is not following down that path so there is reason to be optimistic that not only will not be GL, but not be SR either. I remember being stoked by the SR trailers only to then see the film.

I'd guess that once Marvel stumbles GL level bad we may see a dialing back of the pace their films are rolling out. Until then though...onward to Phase 3.

So - on the back burner again? I'm not sure that this movie will ever be made.

I'd rather they scrap a bad script and delay a few months to get a new one than to have a crappy movie made from said script.

It never ends up being "a few months" with these guys.

I dunno, he could shrug it off as "It's just a coincidence, I get that all of the time."

Not really surprised, given the no name writer involved.

Although to be fair, making a JL movie work would probably be hard for even the best writers out there.

Mark Millar has made some interesting comments about the his opinion of a JL movie.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

Oh, please. Millar pursued the job of writing Superman movies quite aggressively, and now he didn't get the job, suddenly the character couldn't possibly work for a modern audience. Also, he's working for the competition.

I also had to laugh at this bit: "The Flash has door handles on the side of his mask ..."

So?! Captain America has wings on the side of his mask, they worked that into the movies.
