As of now Marvel is whooping DC's ass in terms of live action movies. I'm going to focus slow moving DC movies and their future. Right now the future DC movies that they claim to be developing is The Flash, Green Lantern 2, Justice League, and Lobo. Those will be the ones I focus on.

The Flash



Now, we occasionally are reassured that this movie is still happening when we are about to give up all hope. This movie is in what fans like to call "production hell," and they are right this movie has been talked about for years. Not very recently it has been confirmed that a script is finished. I may not be the smartest person in the world but I'd say that this means it is just about ready to go into production I would suggest, if I am right, that DC would move for ward with this highly anticipated movie before we give up hope, again.

Green Lantern 2



We have just about stopped hearing news about this one. With the flop that was Green Lantern this movie seems unlikely. Fans seem to be split in the middle of this some are happy that they won't see another Green Lantern, others are sad because Mark Strong, the best part of the movie IMO, will not be filling his villainous shoes in a sequel, I agree these people as I said before Mark Strong's performance was the best part of the movie and though major changes would have to be made his performance would be worth it. Sadly, this will likely be rebooted in the next few years.

Justice League



Another film that seems unlikely. Though, I would love to see a movie that pitches my favorite heroes together, at the pace they're going we should forget about it. For the planned 2015 release date, they would have to: make a Flash movie (not going to happen), make a Wonder Woman movie (there have been offers from directors that were all declined),and reboot Batman (probably going to happen but it is a stupid decision)all in 3 years. If somehow they could fit all this in it would feel like an overrushed cluster fuck only made to compete with a rival company. Yeah, might as well give up.

Lobo



This one I am actually interested in. There hasn't really been any put offs on this movie, they seem to be moving forward. Now my theory on this movie on the casting is that The Rock will be cast as "The Main Man," because Dwayne Johnson recently retweeted someone who was saying that they could see him in a DC film saying "funny you should say that," this came out maybe a week after the Lobo film was even announced. It would also make sense because Brad Peyton is directing the film, and he cast him in the decent movie Journey 2 the mysterious island. Now, would be good in the role, maybe. I wish Randy Savage was still with us he'd be my choice.



It's uncanny.

Well that being said atleast we still have the animated films.

@marvel72:
I see nothing wrong with that list. They should hold off on Batman and GL until right before the JL film.

They should also put the secondary/weaker/not-as-important superheroes together in some of the films
For exampple-Nick Fury and Black Widow in Iron Man 2

But none of this will happen if CBM fans don't stop arguing and start supporting both companies

Does DC really deserve a cinematic universe? It may seem like an odd question, but seriously, DC's track record is pretty bad. There have been what 12 Batman and Superman movies to this point? 4 of those 12 are really any good? 1/3? That's pathetic.

A JL is inevitable, after the Avengers success it just will be. In fact I wouldn't be surprised to start seeing companies that own 2 or more heroes suddenly bringing them together.

Example?

What I don't understand is how hopeful DC films like the Flash and Wonder Women have been in developmental hell forever but when Marvel has the same type of issues, they buck up and get the job done so that their movie(s) will be made. Also when one of DC's movies finally gets the green light and filming begins, they end up falling short because the script stinks. Idk about you but i feel that if it took you forever to develop a movie and you finally have an opportunity to begin filming this movie that the script should be at least a good one. Really how did DC get the WB to green light Jonah Hex and Green Lantern when their scripts were terrible??!! I liked the idea of a Jonah Hex a lot and the casting decisions were to my liking but the script was so so bad. I felt bad for Josh Brolin and John Malkovich. Green Lantern took way to long to materialize and Ryan Reynolds to me would have been a better Flash than Green Lantern. Point is that if DC wants to compete with Marvel in the film department they need to show some initiative and have better people at the top to really look at the scripts before okaying them.

@grayfox117 because WB is working on other films (a lot of other films) as well as the DC ones. Harry Potter finished last year so they were going to set up DC characters as their next focus, then they got a poor response to Green Lantern (meaning we probably won't even see a reboot let alone a sequel). WB now have the Hobbit to tide them over for another couple of years. Who knows, if Man of Steel is a success (and they're bound to reboot Batman) then we may get other characters come to the screen.

Supes - "They should also put the secondary/weaker/not-as-important superheroes together in some of the films

- Exactly. Couldn't agree more mate. Would anyone really go to see an Aquaman movie? Would a Hawkman film be a success? Probably 'No' on both counts. Introducing the supporting cast in movies which revolve around bigger and more famous characters is definitely the way to go. A small cameo from Martian Manhunter in Man Of Steel would be awesome, as would a reference to the Green Lantern Corps, just to get the ball rolling... It's just a shame none of these things are actually gonna happen!!! Caedus out.

@marvel72 Keep GL. The sequel will have time for improvement.

I feel like I won't see a JL film before I die. I've always hoped for one, but now it seems like DC doesn't want to make one. Seriously, DC needs to stop screwing around and start focusing on making (better) movies if they want money for themselves and pleasing the fans.
Devastator335 - 6/3/2012, 3:44 PM
@Brainiac3000: Nice ideas man, I totally agree with you. I like Marvel and DC, but DC is better in my opinion (in terms of comics sadly, but Nolan's Batman series and the upcoming Man of Steel film have and will change that).
