Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

They can set-up a JL movie without doing the IM2 thing, for one thing the JL was brought together more by the heroes themselves than any [government] organization. Give the characters their own movie and then do a JL movie and spend the opening 15-20 minutes with bringing them together. It can be done without completely going the Marvel route.

The hitch point is that the events in The Avengers meant something as up to that point the events in the other movies were small and isolated (or buried in a way in the past), other than Thor but that took place in a small town where what happened could easily be contained. But it was a BIG DEAL these aliens were coming to take over Earth in the Avengers and a big deal they all got together to save Earth.

Right now in the DC-CU a major American city has been largely leveled by an alien force. Where to go from here to build things UP?

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I'd like to see a Justice League movie, while I'm still able to get around without a walker!

I don't need an Aquaman film and then a Wonder Woman film first. Let's go, already!

I dunno, I think they deserve their own movies. If not for the very least to wash away the stigma they're still carrying from Super Friends and the WW TV series.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

They might establish one or two other characters in solo movies before Justice League, while introducing some characters in Justice League itself. I think they might try out a DC superhero movie at Christmas 2015, the first Christmas after they're done with the Hobbit trilogy.

My guess is that the next time we see Green Lantern on screen will be in Justice League, and I think it'll be John Stewart rather than Hal Jordan.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Goyer has suggested that the events in the MOS movie - specifically including the destruction of a major American city by this Kryptonian invasion and Superman's emergence - may be what motivates a number of other up-until-now anonymous superheroes to reveal their existence publicly.

At this point Nolan, Snyder and Goyer are beholden to nothing in comic book continuity, which is awesome.

If the characters track as popular in a JL movie, they can always spin off. If they don't, why jeopardize the bottom line?

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

It'll be interesting to see if and how much they use Superman and Batman to juice up the box office of other solo films. For instance, if Cavill was willing, they could have a prominent appearance by Superman in a Wonder Woman film, potentially meeting her prior to the formation of the Justice League.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I really don't think Warner Bros will be making any business decisions based on whether some cartoon characters "deserve to be redeemed from their association with Superfriends."

They should be kicking themselves now for letting a Whedon-created Wonder Woman movie get away from them.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Robinov mentioned a month or so ago that they were going to reveal their "plans" for their DC Cinematic universe. There have been reports that they would announce something after the opening weekend. So tomorrow could be very interesting, or they will just wait until SDCC.

Yeah they should have gave Joss the time he needed to come back and finish "Wonder Woman". I believe that was a big mistake by Joel Silver.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

It looks like the actuals might go up for the weekend box office due to gangbusters business on Father's Day. A theatre source on the BoxOffice.com forum is saying he thinks the Sunday number might be $35.5-37.5 million rather than the estimate of $32.7 million.

Fathers are an important factor in the film. Makes for a good Father's Day film.

I agree with the latter point whole-heartedly (and I say this as a very long-time comics fan and reader). That said, Goyer's suggestion does echo one of the "explanations" for the emergence of heroes--inspiration by Superman--found in some version of continuity I recall.

In any case, I'm looking forward to catching MOS soon and look forward to whatever else Goyer et al. have in store.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I think I want a Bale/Cavill movie more than a strait up JLA thing, at least for now.

I know it's probably wishful thinking since the would-be Batman is probably going to get re-cast with a soft reboot, but I think the two would be fun together. You could leave the other JLAers to the periphery to set up a true JLA film.

I hope you're wrong. There's no reason just yet to dump Ryan Reynolds/Hal Jordan.

I'd love to see him in a Justice League movie too (to me GL was just as ridiculously underrated as MOS is now), but considering the huge stink that movie's got on it, there's no way Warners would want him anywhere near it unfortunately.
