As far as different is concerned, 2016 has Flash and 2017 has Justice League.


They want to push for Aquaman, Metal Men, Sandman (alternative to Harry Potter), and Flash as well.

If the deal with Dune finalizes, I can see them making these other properties.

I dont know, it just seems like Batman and Superman is all they can do. Give me something different already.


Therein lies two problems:

One, that you think MOS was bad. Some people might agree, and some won't. I don't agree. More importantly though, WB doesn't agree. They liked Man of Steel. A lot of people did. It's a movie about Superman, one of the biggest characters in the world. That movie doing well meant a sequel was bound to happen.

Second, the assumption that DC can "only" do Superman and Batman is incredibly premature and, imo, misses the point entirely. When Iron Man came out in 2008, Hulk was the only other "world builder" that came out that same year. So that's two characters. It was THREE YEARS before Thor and Cap came out.

WB/DC isn't at the same point that Marvel is, so acting like they are is a logical problem. They're only starting to build their world, and compared to Marvel's world building, they might be behind, but their schedule is really no different considering they have a full three years to bring out a character other than Superman or Batman, which they've said they're going to do.

Putting Batman in a Superman movie (and it is a Superman movie) basically gives DC/WB two movies for the price of one. That frees up millions of dollars to put towards other movies. DC isn't going to farm out their characters to other studious because of WB, and it would be pointless at this juncture to do so, as they're trying to build a world.

They're behind, but as far as progression goes, they're not nearly as bad as people make them out to be.

If, in 2016 we've still only had Superman and Batman in movies, then you might have an argument.

Well they've had Watchmen which was a great movie. And even though Green Lantern was done badly, it was still done. They even have a live action Green Arrow right now. So lets not pretend Superman and Batman are all WB has ever attempted outside of animation.

And if anything putting Batman in Superman's sequel is only a strong indication that WB has serious plans to do a JL film. After all that's exactly how the JL animated show started coming together.

Not to mention stuff like V for Vendetta, RED, The Losers, LXG, The Spirit, and Constantine. Yes, they're imprints, but they're still technically under that banner.

With this world building, we should start to see more of the "main" universe characters, especially with how encouraging Snyder has been when talking about the DCU.

Rumor is they want to cast an older Batman. Why? If that's the case, get Christian Bale back. If he won't come back, get a young guy around Cavill's age to play Batman.

I don't care how long they take, I just want them to take their time and make sure they have an actual plan rather than just jumping into it because they want that Justice League money.

I'd rather see a really good Justice League movie later than mediocre one sooner.

Yeah. If they mess up, it'll be years before they reboot.

I really hope that the buzz about them using Miller's Dark Knight Returns isn't true. The Dark Knight Returns was cool for its time, but I don't want DC/WB to shit all over the world's finest for the cheap thrill of seeing Batman fighting Superman on the bigscreen.

thats just one of many rumors to come.. As for myself I can't/don't see how a 40 year old actor can do the role...

i think with that rumor therein lies a true lie, I think Miller was just simply brought in so Snyder and Co. can get a simple feeling on how that version of Batman fought Superman

They need Miller for that? They could have gotten an average KMC member--it would have been cheaper and likely more accurate.

If they mess up I would be willing to bet that.....

A) they kind of just toss out the idea of a Justice League movie.

or

B) If they happen to try again they wont learn from their mistakes.

EDIT: here is a yahoo news story on people they want for batman http://movies.yahoo.com/photos/batm...5724563047.html

If they screw it up, they'll wait 6 to 10 years and bring out another reboot of Batman or Superman. That is my bet.

I hope this movie doesn't suck. A lot is riding on this.
