A Justice League Movie cant be done Justice
Why a Justice League movie cant be done properly...
As a life long comic fan (Geek and Proud) I have waited to see all my heroes on the big screen. I, like most of you loved The Avengers. It's a toss up between The Dark Knight and The Avengers as my favorite superhero movie. And as a person who prefers DC over Marvel imagine my excitement when I heard a Justice League movie was in the works..
But as I thought about it... It can't possibly be done justice! It just can't. Here are the reasons...
In my eyes, a proper Justice League movie needs to be The Avengers times 10! Justice League will be harder to pull off because with the exception of Batman all of them have superpowers. With The Avengers you only have The Hulk, Thor and Iron Man (and I say that cause of the suit) to worry about effects-wise.
Think about this...
- Superman (Freeze breath, Heat vision, Super strength, flight, superspeed. When you really think about it, why does he need the justice league)
- Wonder Wonder (Basically superman with no speed, heat vision or freeze breath)
- Flash (the guy can reverse time and change history)
- Green Lantern (depending on the lantern..the guy has the most powerful weapon in the universe and it took damn near 300 mil to do the solo movie)
- Martian Manhunter (alien shape-shifter with Superman like abilities)
- Then Batsy and all his gadgets and goodies
That's not even counting the villain which has to be Darksied and an Apokolips invasion. Because that's the only reason why heroes of this magnitude would have to come together. As much as I loved the Avengers, I never felt the world was in danger, just New York.
To do this movie the right way which is a universe extinction level event, it would be the most expensive movie ever made! Up to 400-500 million dollars. I have no doubt it would make it back because if the Avengers can do a billion then Justice League would double.
But who would want to invest that much money, and who would want to helm that behemoth of a movie? And as much as I love Nolan, I don't want him anywhere near this.
Another reason why this movie can't be done is because DC doesn't have the stones to go all out on the Justice League like Marvel did with The Avengers. I'm a DC guy but Marvel beat them to the punch on this thing. A world's finest would be just as good but as long as Nolan has DC's balls in his hand well never see that either or a shared universe.
Last reason... Paul Dini and Andrea Romano are not in charge! I have no faith in Johns! Dini gave us all the great animated films and Romano gave the actors behind them. DC won't give them a chance to do for the movies what they the for the animation.
In conclusion as much I want to see this, it will never be, because it won't be done justice as long as WB/DC won't let it be what it needs to be.
