Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

Possibly. I can see Geoff Johns pushing an adaption of his Aquaman ongoing, just disappointed though that Arthur isn't included. It makes no sense to include Shazam in the story.

About as much sense at it makes to call him "Shazam" instead of Captain Marvel. How the heck can he introduce himself without changing back to Billy? (Although Captain Marvel, Jr. has long had the same problem, since he transforms when he says "Captain Marvel.")

Captain Marvel is one of my favorite heroes, but DC has just ruined him. Its weird, because I should want to see my favorite DC hero get attention, but I don't like Shazam at all. I like Capain Marvel, and he's not really around anymore, just an imposter with a slightly similar costume.

Also, they got around the CM jr name thing in the old DCU by having him call himself CM3 and in the New 52 they just call him King Marvel.

People have been saying that since 1972.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

Since we're on the subject of movie adaptations, I would like to see an adaptation of Injustice: Gods Among Us (video game). This is a really cool game that I have played on my PS3 countless times featuring DC heroes and villains. I love the single player modes and have downloaded numerous DLC characters. I completed the story mode, which was just as good as an animated movie would have been. Considering they have added various characters like Lobo, Zod, J'onn J'onzz, etc. as extras, I would love to see an updated film with voices by Kevin Conroy, Carl Lumbly, and lots of other notable DCAU voice actors.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

Looks like we're getting costume alterations in "Justice League: War". I would have thought for sure we'd be getting Jim Lee's designs in this since the look of the art is a criteria of theirs. Unless they decided that art wasn't working very well heh. Bruce doesn't seem to have his Tron outfit on either

Depends on the project. Some of the DCU movies have echoed the art style of their source comics, while others have used new designs. There's never been an absolute uniform policy about it.

Unless they decided that art wasn't working very well heh.
Lee's sense of costume design is rather... overcomplicated, isn't it? All sorts of seams and details and such. That wouldn't translate well to animation. Animated character designs tend not to use more lines than they need to, so that they can be animated more fluidly.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

I just watched the preview of Justice League: War that I assume was attached with "Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox" on Youtube and I still think it is bizarre that they've swapped Arthur with Billy. This in my opinion, changes the entire dynamic of the team during this particular arc. I realize that it is only an adaption and not exact, but still that is a very significant change. Also they talked about using Jim Lee's art, so perhaps most of it will still be included in the film.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

But if they are using Jim Lee's art, then why did they change the costume designs?

^Like I said, Lee's New 52 costumes are really, really detailed in a way that's ill-suited for animation. 2D animation works best with clean, simple lines.

Plus, Lee's New 52 costumes are mostly pretty awful-looking, so maybe that's a reason too...

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

Jay Oliva did talk about some of the art work being highly detailed and dynamic to be totally translatable to animation. I thought for sure though that they would get his costume designs in there. Batman's Tron suit would have been interesting to see lol.

Also the writer talked about Geoff Johns making sure various moments were included in the film, so it looks like we can look forward to ass hole Hal and the single most stupid moment in the first arc to me when Bruce reveals his identity to Hal in the middle of their battle with Darkseid.

The cast though I will say looks impressive as usual.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

They didn't change Flash's costume much at the end of "Flashpoint Paradox," either.

Looking forward to this one.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

^ It was still basically his New 52 costume though that appeared at the end, and same with Bruce as well. There were the slight tweaks. Probably the segmented lines were gone from Bruce's suit.

Re: Justice League: War (animated movie)

"Justice League: War" panel. Andrea's comments regarding "Batman Beyond" are somewhat noteworthy.
