Topic: The Justice League of America (20??)

It's going to happen sooner or later, and when it does I hope it's pulled off right and has the same epic scope as Avengers with all these superheroes colliding and whatnot. With Batman and Superman getting another reboot too I can only hope these are done right too so they can tie in with the proposed Justice League movie. Anyways discuss.

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

I wouldn't mind it, but I think Warner Bros has a lot of work to do first.  Like Marvel, they need to establish their heroes in solo films first.  The average movie-goer isn't going to watch a movie about a bunch of superheroes they don't know.  Batman, Superman and Green Lantern  may already have been established in film (well, maybe not GL -- not a lot of people saw that flick lol ) but what about Martian Manhunter, or Flash, or Hawkman, or Wonder Woman, or Aquaman?

No, they need to have their own solo films first, get people invested in these characters and want to see them all come together.  Otherwise a JL flick will be just another empty, big-budget bomb.

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

I'm hoping this will eventually be green lit, but not before (as stated) the other lesser known characters have a chance to be show cased.

Ohhhh...how I wanna see a Wonder Woman film! Not just because she's so hot looking in the comics,  I'm a fan of the character too.

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

I think an Aquaman film would be the least of my interest. Let's face it, he wears bright flashy colors and his powers aren't really interesting but unless they can pull off a well adapted Aquaman then I'm sold. Cary Elwes is also my first choice to play Aquaman, so I hope he gets the part.

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

^^^ Aquaman's a bit of a chump character, sure, but recently when DC rebooted fifty two old titles (calling them the "New 52") Aquaman got an injection of major coolness and is now one of the better DC titles going at the moment.  He's a lot more powerful physically (stronger, bullet-proof) and they're downplaying the whole "talks to fish" thing.  He's actually more of a heavy hitter now, along the lines of Namor the Submariner -- still strong as hell on land but his strength wanes the longer he's out of the water.

Anyhoo, personally I love Carey Elwes but I think he's a bit too old and paunchy now to pull this one off.  They'll do like they did with Superman and Green Lantern (and Thor and Captain America) and get a younger, 20- or 30-something actor to play him.  They were actually in the process of filming a new Wonder Woman TV pilot but the network decided they weren't going to pick it up before they'd even finished filming.  It starred an actress named Adrianne Palicki, and as you can see here...

...it left a lot to be desired. lol

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

You know Cary Elwes was supposed to star in the proposed Wonder Woman tv series too? I would have liked to see that pick up, but I'm fine with the Green Arrow tv series on CW because at least it's giving limelight to DC and the characters it has to offer.  Another thing I'd also like to see in the Justice League movie is how Batman/Bruce Wayne will fit in with the rest of the superheroes as he doesn't have any super-powers and what it will be like to be the only one with super-powers. I think that this movie has great potential, even though it leaves a few questions.

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

Won't superman kill everything? Just laser eye all the enemies lol

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

I dont know if they will be able to pull it off.  As much as I am a Batman and DCU guy, I just dont think they will be able to put the characters together good enough to make it work.  I dont think they'll be able to establish Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg, Captain Marvel (Or Shazam if you's like), etc.  Plus I dont think they will ever be able to establish Green Lantern or Wonder Woman even if they try and reboot either property.  I honestly think the best character they have lef that might be able to make a decent movie is The Flash, but that could really terrible if done the wrong way with his speed

Outside of Justice League characters, if they get the right Director, I'd love to see an Animal Man movie.  Could be dark & gritty as hell

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

So I figure I'd bump this thread to discuss everyones perfect cast for a Justice League movie. Feel free to post who you'd to take on the characters. I'd like to see:

Simon Baker as Aquaman
Glenn Howerton as The Flash
Matthew Fox as Green Lantern
Giancarlo Esposito as Martian Manhunter
Brad Dourif as Lex Luthor

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

Superman -- someone besides Henry Caville.  Very stiff and bland in the role.  Maybe David Giuntoli.

Batman -- I think they made a good call with Affleck. 

Aquaman -- Mike Vogel, who plays Barbie on Under the Dome.  If they don't get him for this role, then they should definitely get him to play Iron Fist in a Marvel flick.

Green Lantern -- Matt Bomer, from the show White Collar.  He's got the look, plus he's a solid actor.  He also has a knack for playing the underdog, which GL typically is.

Martian Manhunter -- my personal favorite DC character.  For a guy who could beat the snot out of the entire Justice League, Superman included, he doesn't get near enough love.  I think they'd need someone who can be intimidating but who also has a certain maturity to them.  Call me crazy, but I like Jon Bernthal (Shane from The Walking Dead) for this one.

Lex Luthor -- Dean Norris, from Breaking Bad and Under the Dome.  Great character actor and plays a really good heavy.

Wonder Woman -- Jaimie Alexander.  She could play Diana in between stints playing Sif in the Thor flicks.

The Flash -- Ryan Kwanten (True Blood).  The Flash is a light-hearted character and Kwanten has comedic ability.  And he's built like a runner, tall and lean, so he wouldn't have to do like most CBM actors and work on his physique.

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

Superman : Same dude
Batman : Christain Bale
John aka MMH : Vin Diesel even sounds like him
Hawk Man : Guy who was king in 300
Hawk Girl : Sara Michelle Giller
Green Lantern : Dude who played Twoface in darknight
Flash : Dude from H20 and 30 days of nights.
Wonder Woman : huh............as if there could be anyone but Kate Beckinsale

I wish I could post pics

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

I also think Chris Sarandon would make a good Jim Gordon if they reintroduce him.

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

Wow the Rock as John Stewart. I would be more exited if I actually liked the character. Imo John Stewart is the worst green lantern.

Edit : sorry he's rumored. I hope it doesn't happen I want to see Hal jorden not John Stewart in the justice league movie

Re: The Justice League of America (20??)

I'm convinced DC is making all the wrong moves in setting this movie up.  Bascially Superman v Batman is introducing tons of characters but I think that is a mistake.  Introducing too much means no characters will have depth and unless you read the comics wont care.  They should be building multiple individual character movies instead
