Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

I'm a little disappointed to hear no Aquaman or Martian Manhunter as part of the team. I am, however, relieved to hear Green Lantern. I was very afraid he might get left out after the debacle of the solo film. The question now is, will it be Hal Jordan, or will they decide to distance themselves from the Reynolds crap and use John Stewart (which would serve the dual purpose of diversifying the cast)

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

Ha! Can you imagine the fanboy butthurt if they used Baz? Being the new main Green Lantern aside, there's no way they would ever consider using him. Heck, I wouldn't think they would even use John if it weren't for the Justice League cartoon. I remember hearing plenty of non-comic fans asking before the Green Lantern movie came out "Wait, isn't Green Lantern black?"

I didn't think Green Lantern was that bad.

Sure it could have used a little less Tim Robbins, but that's true for every movie he's been in.

Tim Robbins is in Green Lantern? Might check it out after all.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

As much as I liked GL, I get the impression Reynolds has moved on from the experience (other than marrying his co-star of course) and wouldn't want to be in a Justice League movie anyway.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

El Mayimbe from Latino Review gave this Tweet.

He knows WB has a director for JL that 'they're happy with' and that he has the inside track.

I'd hate to think what would happen if Man of Steel was a GL level flop.

A MASSIVE set back for DC. It would be their "John Carter"

Batman would be brought back in 3 to 5 years. WB would be permanently scared of trying any other hero

-Superman Returns? Strike One

-Green Lantern? Strike two

-Man of Steel? Strike Three

Latino Review reports these as the confirmed members in the movie...
Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash, with possible cameos for Martian Manhunter and maybe one other.
Let the gnashing of teeth begin.
I do wish they'd keep Batman and Superman to their own, seperate realities. Head up the JLA with a Supergirl, not Kara, but Kal-El if he'd happened to have been conceived and born female.

Re: They are going ahead with a Justice League movie

I still dont quite believe this movie is actually going to happen, there maybe alot of "will" for this movie to happen from fans and DC/WB looking at the much greener grass on Marvel / Disneys lawn, but despite reports, I just dont see it happening. Having a film in development is obviously not the same as filming.

Meanwhile if Man of Steel flops, that would kill this, they cant launch a Justice League movie on the back of a Superman flop, and the studio will need to wait a couple of years, before they can revive Superman.

As bad as the Green Lantern movie was, that is not a problem for this movie.

Assuming Superman is a hit, I think the biggest problem is making a new Batman work after the highly successful trilogy.

At this point, I think the cast should be the new 52 line up. Cyborg could be pretty cool looking in a movie.

Batman should hardly be in it. He should tell them all to piss off at the start but then turn up at the end.

I enjoyed it a lot, and Warners made their money on it - but not nearly enough to make it a success justifying a sequel. One can see in retrospect that Green Lantern is a problematic movie concept without a lot of retooling to the story, but there's no reason the character can't work well in Justice League.

The whole movie should take place while he's in the pit.

They could lift the Wolverine cameo in First Class and literally have Batman in it for one line.

They could have the Justice League hand over the bill for whatever damages they cause to Bruce at the end of the movie.
