Is it a literal crossover or are the Supergirl and Superboy books tie-ins to the main story?
One story.

I skipped over the H'ell arc. Not really interested in it.
It hasn't been too bad, really. I like the interaction between Superman and Superboy (the first time the two have met, and the first awareness Superman has over Superboy. Some conflict between SB and Supergirl -as well as H'El- since clones are abominations in Kryptonian culture.) I just hope when the storyline is over Supergirl comes to her senses and realizes how good Superman/Kal is and the errors of her ways during this arc.

In reading the Justice League book to get more on the Throne of Atlantis story line, I've got to say I quite like it, good artwork in it and I liked the beginning of the story seeing Clark and Diana on a date. ()

I believe that "Throne of Atlantis" concludes with next week's Justice League #17? It really has been great.

The villain in Avengers 2 is Thanos. Granted, Darkseid was created first and Thanos is a copy, but the general audience doesn't know that. It would look like Justice League is ripping off A2.

I am probably in the minority that I really liked the opening arc of Justice League. Yes, it was poorly paced and really should have been a three or four issue story--but in many ways it recalled the classic Justice League stories of a group of individual heroes coming together to fight a common foe.

I would have liked to have seen more stories set in the past to really get an idea of how the team grew over the next five years. A new Justice League Task Force series could handle this nicely.

For movie purposes though, a Darkseid invasion story could work, but there would need to be a lot more backstory into Apokalypse and Darkseid. In fact, a variation on the Final Crisis story could work quite nicely as a film--maybe with Cyborg developing a wish machine of some sort.

If I were developing a Justice League movie with Darkseid as the villain, I'd plunder Jim Starlin and Mike Mignola's Cosmic Odyssey for the source material. It's not, technically, a Justice League story, but I think it could easily be made into one -- and at the end, the heroes decide to stay together as a team.

Hell, adapt Cosmic Odyssey into a trilogy. There's enough incredible material. Never happen, but, MAN, that would be great.

I'd personally do an adaptation of Grant Morrison's opening JLA arc with the White Martians.

Good idea, except that it has already been done in Justice League TAS.

That doesn't mean it can't be done in a live action film as well.

Which maybe a few thousand people saw. While it's true more people have probably seen the JL cartoons, they are still a smaller number than go to movies like The Avengers, Superman, etc. If the WB wanted to do this story, they wouldn't be discouraged because it was done as a cartoon once.

It's a great idea. It's a great way to introduce J'onn, who is probably the least familiar to the general audience.

But, the question is, is an invasion story like this to much like the Avengers?

Maybe. But then I don't see that being too much of a problem. Aren't all invasion stories pretty similar to each other? It's how you tell them that separates them from each other right? I would use the Martian Civil War as a backdrop for the film. J'onn would probably be the audience POV and be the linchpin that brings the League together.
