Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

I read the first issue of the arc, and I thought it was good, so I'll go ahead and check this one out.
I'm always impressed with how good the casts they get for these things are.

They can still adapt classic stories, but I think they'll all be adjusted to fit the New 52 (especially costumes).

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

God, I hate that arc. All the heroes acting out-of-character, a plot basically non-existent ...

I mean, the first issue alone, where Hal Jordan and Batman encounter a Parademon and say to themselves "That's an alien. You know, this Superman guy is rumored to be an alien to, maybe he's connected to this". Great, the DC world's greatest detective and the guy serving in an intergalactic police both think, all aliens are alike.

Well, the good thing about an adaptation is that they have a chance to change and improve aspects of the original work. For all my problems with the Superman/Batman: Public Enemies movie, the original comic was worse in a lot of ways, though better in a few ways (as I discussed here).

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

I hope the New 52 stuff doesn't get used too much. New 52 JL is just horrible, and the first arc was really boring also. Hopefully this sells/reviews poorly so they go back to adapting good stuff.

I actually love the Public Enemies movie (I never read the comic it was based on). I can't really pick a favorite with the DC animated movies, but S/B: Public Enemies was one I really enjoyed.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

Someone needs to explain why they have not done a Justice League: Kingdom Come. That story would make a perfect film adaptation and like TDKR they could do it in multiple parts.

But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. We have to have Flashpoint and Nu52

They've repeatedly explained it as they're often asked about it. It would take a much bigger budget than these movies have to do the art style justice.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

Yep Bruce Timm has explained plenty of occasions (basically every SDCC when it comes up) why they haven't done "Kingdom Come" yet, same with stuff like "Dark Victory" or "The Long Halloween".

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

Apparently the featurette for "Justice League: War" has cropped up on the internet now that Flashpoint: Paradox is out...and been pulled too by Warner Brothers. However, I did manage to read a few responses, and unfortunately it would appear that Aquaman won't be in this adaption and instead Shazam will be taking his place. Can anyone confirm this who has seen the featurette?

I found the featurette here

http://www.flickeringmyth.com/2013/0...r-justice.html

I don't like how the interviewees all have to pretend like the story they're adapting is awesome and basically not bring up the fact that the story arc had all the members acting like giant a-holes (which still continues to this day). I mean, i didn't expect them to bad mouth the story, but when they talk about "interpersonal dynamics" between the characters, all they can mean is that they all act like idiots and hate each other from the beginning. I will say that the samples of scenes actually have much better written dialog with the characters, and they don't seem to sound like such a-holes to each other. That could just be the stuff the showed, but I think this story will be better than the mediocre comic it was based on.



Also, they do mention Captain Marvel (I won't call him Shazam, even if the new 52 version is horribly written and nothing like the real version) but its only once and they didn't outright say he's in the story. Still, no one mentioned aquaman even once, even when they mentioned the names of the rest of the League, so its not looking good for aquaman.

They really do get some great casts together for these movies.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

Confirmation that Aquaman has been swapped for Shazam in "Justice League: War" and that at some point we will be getting an "Aquaman" movie.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

Cool. I'm glad to see them finally expanding their solo movies beyond just Batman & Superman again. I wonder if this means we might get a Flash DCAU movie too?
