Yeah they never had a huge fight with Doomsday. That was disappointing. But it wasn't all bad, Clark vs other Kryptonians throughout the series were usually exciting. Impulse, Martian Manhunter, even Dr. Fate and Hawkman were also displayed relatively well.

But yeah it's really the animations that will show full superhero action(where DC also has the edge).

Having said that Arrow's done really well with the action sequences. Most people agree Arrow's action is far far ahead of Nolan's Batman, despite the latter being on the big screen.

Remember Christopher Nolan saying he wouldn't be part of a Justice League movie, and thinking such a movie would rob both Batman and Superman of their uniqueness? That's the same kind of thinking that's sidelined DC for the longest time - building up their big three so much, at the expense of the rest of their universe. Why else did they do a weekly series - 52 - that was all about the hero community in trouble by not having Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman for a full year? It's only because Marvel is forcing their hand, that they have no choice but to go ahead with a shared universe. Bats and Supes will just have to be important members of the community now, instead of these super icons.



Yeah WB has been really really slow and lazy on the big screen.

But surprisingly they were the first to put them all together on tv with JL and JLU in animation(Heck they had Super friends like decades ago), as well as putting together a JL roster in live action via Smallville.

Believe it or not they actually did a crappy JL tv movie back in the 90's. So they have at been doing that long before Marvel on the small screen.


Edit- Mistakenly double posted.

I feel your pain. It still pisses me off that we could've had World's Finest in 2002 and Justice League between 2006-2011.

What infuriated me even more was that WB was considering doing a Motion Capture version of Justice League. It would've starred Brandon Routh as Superman, someone else as Batman (because Nolan didn't want his Batman touched), and I don't know for the rest. While they were considering that, Marvel made plans for a Live Action Avengers movie. The rest is history. Nolan hampered the start of the DCCU along with Singer's lack of imagination and knowledge of Superman.

I would feel better right now if they announced they were working on a Wonder Woman movie, Aquaman movie, Green Lantern reboot/sequel, and a shared universe with the tv shows on right now.

Eh I hope Constantine is done right but I have low expectations. There are so many ways to get it wrong.

For one thing, if it's not in London that would be a terrible start. Will have to wait for more details I guess.

Not hating on it, just low expectations because Hellblazer was one my favourite comic series ever written (and John is my favourite character).

It could be brilliantly done and I could be massively surprised. But I'm pessimistic because John is a character that isn't easy to write well.

That being said, looking forward to the Gotham PD thing, that could be a really cool Gotham Central style show.

Nope, but is a pilot ordered for it yet?

The more pilots ordered the better, because not all pilots result in a series. So I know The Flash, and Constantine have been ordered.

Funny. I saw Donal on the Conan O'Brien show when I visited New York. He's pretty cool.
