Before the Avengers Assembled in theatres in 2012, each hero had their own movie to establish their backstory. As 2013's Superman: The Man Of Steel will reboot the Superman mythology the film should mark the beginning of a new continuity for the DC Universe. A Superman movie would create a great jumping on point for the franchise, however, let's not have a similar bunch of solo movies based on other League members! We all know Batman is billionaire Bruce Wayne, and we really don't need to know the origins of Green Lantern (gets magic ring), Flash (gets struck by lightning) or Wonder Woman (has nice boobs?). So for Justice League to work - and not seem like an Avengers retread - let's have a JL movie without all the unecessary build up.
Let's face it, the Green Lantern film sucked big time so the sooner we forget about it the better. What I really don't want to see in a Justice League movie is any connection to Reynolds' GL!!!!
No offence Ryan I don't blame you, but the GL movie was a disappointing experience for everyone concerned. It's time to move on.
One of the elements that worked really well in Avengers Assemble was the inclusion of background characters - such as Pepper Potts - who really helped to establish the bigger world of the Marvel Universe. What I don't want to see is DC ignore their background characters in favour of spending all of the screen time on the big guns.
Superman needs Lois Lane in his life and Batman needs Alfred, so they need to show up!!! Amy Adams will appear in Superman: The Man of Steel as Lois Lane, so don't ditch her DC in favour of more time spent with Aquaman! To date the best on screen version of the Justice League is the animated TV show from the early '00s. Season one ignored most of the background characters (a situation rectified in season two) and that's why the episodes in the first season weren't quite as good as the later shows.
A Justice League movie needs a big-ass villain (not just a team-up between Lex Luthor and Joker). The movie needs Darkseid!!!
However... the last time Darkseid appeared on screen it was during the tenth season of Smallville where he was depicted as a crappy CGI mess. This can not happen in a JL movie!!! We need to see an actual person playing the villain! Any wishy-washy computer generated villainy and I'm walking.
The Justice League movie must include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter. Outside of these core members I'm not that bothered about who else shows up... as long as it's not Aquaman!!!
Yes it's fair to say there's not a lot of love for Aquaman on The Comics Code, but there's a reason for that. He's a crap superhero!!!!
Jeez, unless the JL movie sees the League team up with Free Willy there is no place for Aquaman on the team!
