Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

So, since Morrison is now staying on Action Comics until #18, is tomorrow's issue still a large sized $4.99 issue?

And do you really think Batman and Superman now movies to introduce and explain them to an audience? Wonder Woman doesn't require a two hour introduction to for an audience to get her.
No, we don't need another Batman or Superman movie. Everyone knows all about those characters, but while everyone knows of Wonder Woman, what they actually know about her amounts to: Linda Carter, invisible airplane. She needs it.

So far as DC goes, Ill take a movie about any character other than Superman or Batman for the sake of variety. Green Lantern was a great move (whatever it might deserve in criticism) as it was an attempt to give the general audience something new so far as DC products go. Wonder Woman, Flash, even Ambush Bug would be of more interest to me than yet another Supes/Bats movie.

Action Comics 17 is still extra sized at 48 pages, next month's issue is 40 pages I believe.

^Yes but the Avengers had everything laid out in the previous movies so all that back story was taken care of. For the JLA we are jumping into the pot while the fire is roaring. I'm not saying it couldnt be done but it would be a whole lot to squeeze into a single picture.
It would take less than five minutes for J'onn to explain the backstory clearly and simply--no problem.

Exactly. And the same reason why Aquaman needs it.

This is completely fanboy wishful thinking--no character needs a movie to be introduced. Aquaman can be shown to be a badass in two minutes, Wonder Woman even less. No movie needs pre-movies to introduce the characters. If JL is successful, all these characters can get their own movies later.

You can say that you WANT them to have movies, but not that they NEED it. That isn't even something to debate.

Wonder Woman I'd argue would need a movie to erase the 80s TV series version of her to bring audiences "up to date" on what her character is. And as mentioned before Aquaman certainly needs to reprogram people about him. Hell his OWN COMIC in the New 52 needed to do that!
You brought up that argument in the Justice League movie thread. So, to save time, I'll quote you wrote I wrote there:

If anything Aquaman would need the "hardest" movie to overcome the damage Super Friends did to him.
Who the hell remembers the Super Friends? That was 30 years ago. In the meantime, the Justice League cartoon has come out, Justice League Unlimited, Batman: Brave and the Bold, Young Justice, Smallville.

Why does the Super Friends matter, except to a bunch of aging people? Who aren't the target audience?
And actually, Wonder Woman ended in 1979. So, that's 34 years ago. 34. Seriously, who, besides aging fanboys have ever SEEN or remember Linda Carter as Wonder Woman?

Not only add Wonder Woman to the list of cartoons above, but to video games.

People in their 20s don't know this Linda Carter that you are talking about. Not the general audience that is going to see this movie.

And I think it's also curious you never responded to The Incredibles example. Why doesn't that move require, NAY, DEMAND four movies to set it up? Where was the mass confusion?
