Justice League is supposedly coming, but here's the problem.

The Avengers worked because they successfully introduced the individuals characters first. Bringing them together then amplified into the largest collective geekgasm of all time.

DC is going to go the 'en masse first' route. I've got my doubts it'll work. For one, how do you provide satisfactory introductions for all those characters without the movie being four hours long? Marvel's pre-movies did that job for them ahead of time.

Id be interested to see Gambit get his own movie...

DC characters are really cool when youre younger, but lack any real awesomeness as you get older. There just aint enough to compete with the Marvael heros, short of Batman. The Dark Knight is badass regardless of Adam West, Val Kilmer & George Clooney... Ive heard of a JLA movie for years, thought it was supposed to be out to contend with Avengers. Going back to my previous statement, I think the only way most DC heros could make a movie is by collaboration, none are cool enough to be the centerpoint, IMO. Im not a big fan of the Superman movies, any of them. I saw the preview in the theater & all that went through my head was Adam Sandle from Billy Madison -Well WOOPADEEDOO! Although I hear Smallville is cool...

Second on the Deapool film. If ever there was a comic book character born to be in the movies, it would be Deadpool (also my favorite character). I was also livid with what they did to him in X-Men Origins. I really hope word of that abortion never is uttered again.

The most exciting thing in a Deadpool movie for me, is seeing a character who is self-aware that he is in an action movie. Ferris Beuller + Blood and Guts? How can it miss? Oh, right... Marvel Studios.

DC heroes are gods... as such they act as archetypes rather than actual characters...

if DC wants to make movies, this is what they should make... IMO one of the best comic stories ever put to paper... and I don't really like DC books.

That's one of the things I've always disliked about DC.

Their heroes are rarely 'down to earth' which makes them less relatable.

it's also a good thing when used correctly though, because DC heroes are symbols and myths in their own right... when used properly (as in kingdom come,) it can be very effective.

I think Marvel has a good mix of "earthy" characters and legendary ones.

I'm not sure DC is as good at that balance.

Might I suggest you take a brief moment to review the following images...



Having done that, let me now ask you, are there any reasons you can think of why guys - more specifically, comic book geeks - might desire to see this particular character featured in a live action movie?


See, that's something I'll never get about people. If you want to watch a shitty movie starring a girl with big tits just watch a porn movie.

The CW is looking into making a TV about Wonder woman. I wouldnt mind seeing some solo X-men movies if the story is good.
