Why a Justice League film won't work

Why a Justice League film won't work

Follow IronMan13:
By IronMan13 - 9/27/2012
This is my second article.

Characters: These characters are not realistic enough to be put on film. Superman could take on anyone without help. The same applies to Batman. Everyone else on the league is lame.

Continuity issues: People would get confused if Christian Bale is not Batman, Henry Cavil is not Superman, or Ryan Reynolds is not Green Lantern.
Too much confusion for the general audience!

Reboot: People are sick and tired of Reboots!!!

Warner Brothers: Let's face it. WB is too stupid to make a film on this scale. Don't forget this is the same studio that brought you Green Lantern.

These are good points, and I say that as a primarily DC fan.... But maybe u should beef it up a little, not much of an article
blueorangeny - 9/27/2012, 5:52 PM
1. By the look of your name I see why.
2. You seem as if your girl pissed on your toys
3. You speaking as if WB/DC has announced confirmed information about their plans

@ ImaNerd - Yes...I'm sorry but I disagree with you. Marvels formula worked for them. The way JL is being set up works for DC. You have MOS and it leads into JL. Reason it works this way because you have Superman and Batman in one flick, it doesn't make a difference who else is in, those 2 draw. It will draw the regular movie-goer. Anyway this same topic has been spoken about for so long, it's a broken record.

Second to Marvel fans....I continue saying Avengers was tad above average. First half of the movie was a bored.

@ CaptainCool - LMAO well said. Yea. My neighbor turns green every time a dog shits on his yawn.
blueorangeny - 9/27/2012, 5:55 PM
The whole realistic and grounded subject is over-rated.
armagedom - 9/27/2012, 5:55 PM
this is the worst and the stupidest editorial ever
CharlesLord - 9/27/2012, 5:55 PM
lets try this again

What.....
Ancar - 9/27/2012, 5:55 PM
Man, honestly, try to write something good and not take attention by such a ridiculous artcle - if we can call it that way.
blueorangeny - 9/27/2012, 6:01 PM
avengerfan2012....dude at least put effort into your writing. ridiculous
nerdman81 - 9/27/2012, 6:11 PM
Short, weet and to the point lol While I don't NECESSARILY agree, I CAN see it turning out like crap! We must remember that WB is still behind this, and the ever overrated Nolan is having very little to do with anything! He has already stated numerous times that he is going to be nearly completely hands off!

By the looks of Man of Steel, they are going for a much more realistic take on the DC cinematic universe.

Saying The Incredible Hulk is more realistic than Batman is just blind fanboy bias.
KalEl26 - 9/27/2012, 6:55 PM
This article just seemed to be completely biased before reading it due to the users name. After I read it though...it still seems biased lol
ComicFan523 - 9/27/2012, 7:03 PM
I'm gonna have to disagree with pretty much everything that you just said. Judging by your comments I also assume that you're either trolling or just an obsessive Avengers fan, which is fine, The Avengers is awesome. Don't hate on a Justice League film just yet, to be completely honest, two years ago I though that The Avengers wouldn't work as a film, and it was one of the best films of the year.
DrStampe17 - 9/27/2012, 7:06 PM
First off, this article isn't even considered "News". It belongs in the Editorials. Unless some fanboy griping about a film he hasn't even seen yet counts as news (shrugs).
REDSTORM - 9/27/2012, 7:11 PM
The Superman argument applies to Hulk as well.
Bandido - 9/27/2012, 7:33 PM
...this is...an...article?....O...Kay?

Dude I know this is your second article but come on! Put more effort if you want them to be taken seriously...

Just a suggestion..take it or leave it
Viltrumite - 9/27/2012, 7:51 PM
This might actually be the worst article I've ever read in my entire life.
If you absolutely, positively -had to- write this very quickly, and lacked the time/care to actually write a half-decent editorial that maybe contributed an original idea or two, as opposed to posting a list of idiotic, half-assed fanboy complaints, then -why post it at all-

bluedude - 9/27/2012, 9:01 PM
This is article is just stupid. Its just a statement
the incredible HULK is realistic?
THOR the GOD of thumder is realistic?
A man who created a suit that endowes super human strength can shoot heat beams is realistic?
A super soldier is realistic? Hhhmmmm ya the last one maybe kinda
and all the other league members are lame? Wonder woman? The flash? The green lantern? Funny these characters have been aroumd for decades they sell comics every week have excellent story arcs
FINAL POINT by the way not very many people were familiar with iron man before the movie im sure he sounded pretty lame to some people too but look at him now
bluedude - 9/27/2012, 9:25 PM
avengers are awesome justice league is awesome you should really open your mind to other things by not doing that youre screwing yourself out of a lot of things you might really enjoy
mkilban2 - 9/27/2012, 9:36 PM
lol @AvengerFan2012 cannot be older than 13 years old hahahaha.

THIS IS NOT NEWS AND THUS SHOULD NOT BE IN THE NEWS SECTION!
fwg22392 - 9/27/2012, 11:20 PM
Ok, I'm a Marvel fan too, but this is just ridiculous. It shows very low intelligence, poor rationalization, and overall senseless debate. Was The Avengers a success? Yes it was. Will a JL movie be a success? There's no way to tell until it's released.
Also, saying your in high-school doesn't help your case at all. If anything, its detrimental to it. Why don't you take your article, wrap it up nicely and shove it in your mouth so you can't spew such horrid waste anymore.
Meezy - 9/27/2012, 11:34 PM
They have already confirmed that Henry Cavill's MAN OF STEEL will be the precursor to the Justice League movie. I am assuming they will probably do a MAN OF STEEL sequel that directly introduces the idea. This makes your statement about Henry Cavill not playing Superman in the Justice League incorrect. It's obvious that Bale will not be Batman because Nolan's Batman has no place in a world or universe of superpowered heroes.
DioFoRio - 9/28/2012, 12:04 AM
I wish next to the thumbs up there was an icon of a limp dick and tiny balls that I could click....cause this article is Flaccid and disappointing this should be in Fanbitchtion.
DioFoRio - 9/28/2012, 12:06 AM
@Avengersfan...should have just went with thirteen. Get out man, put the bluray away and flap your dick all willey nilley. You're in high school man.

this is kinda more of a few comments. not really article-y. anyway...

"Characters: These characters are not realistic enough to be put on film."

you ever watch a movie before?

"Superman could take on anyone without help."

sure. usually. but this is where creative writing comes into play

"The same applies to Batman."

not really

"Everyone else on the league is lame."

i've read way more justice league comics than i ever have or will avengers comics. i think the justice league is the opposite of lame

"Continuity issues: People would get confused if Christian Bale is not Batman, Henry Cavil is not Superman, or Ryan Reynolds is not Green Lantern.
Too much confusion for the general audience!"

maybe for a few spastic mountain dew chuggers. but after the confusion, the a.d.d. will take over and it won't matter anymore :)

"Reboot: People are sick and tired of Reboots!!!"

hollywood has been rebooting since forever, in all genres of film. if it's done well, what's yer problem?

"Warner Brothers: Let's face it. WB is too stupid to make a film on this scale. Don't forget this is the same studio that brought you Green Lantern."

yes, wb is probably very stupid. i think you are onto something here :/

i'm entertained with so much talk/typing of will/can a justice league movie "work".

yeah, it can "work". you ever seen a movie before?

wasn't hard to make the avengers "work". it's not that difficult to take some people, stand them next to each other, and have them talk or interact or fight each other...
DCjohnny - 9/28/2012, 2:04 AM
are u kidding me ... people are dieing to see a justice league movie.....and as far as character issues as mentioned above... hulk , thor , iron man also can take out any one without anyone's help.... and for the warner bros.... dont forget thats the studio that brought us.. the dark knight , rises, lord of the rings, harry potter etc... its not about the studio... its about the director who is directing it....
DCjohnny - 9/28/2012, 2:08 AM
oh and i get it .... this guy is an avengers fan( u can make out by his usename itself)... may be he doesnt want justice league to come out ....which may kick the avengers out.....
Jolt17 - 9/28/2012, 2:43 AM
I was about to be respectful, but then I looked back at your writing, and I saw that there's nothing to be respected in it. So I was about to send out critics instead, but then I noticed your username. And so, I immediately understood that there's no point in trying to start a good debate here.

The fact that you...eh, wrote this in rush doesn't help - if you don't have time to...um, write an...gah, article, then wait until you do. The fact that you didn't even bother to send this...article to the Editorials section makes things worse.
DrStampe17 - 9/28/2012, 2:44 AM
Call it an opinion, but I'm way more excited to see this Justice League movie happen. I loved Avengers, but DC has legendary superheroes. These heroes have been alive way long before Marvel's (the 1930's).

Plus, Justice League doesn't need to introduce you to who these characters are. Each hero is so iconic in our pop culture, their very symbol alone people who don't read comics even know about. Plus, DC's stories tend to be darker (Green Lantern's city being destroyed anyone?) which I think will make for a perfect JLA film since you have such dynamic characters and will be a lot more mature.

Avengers was fun, but as a film, I view it as a popcorn flick with a great story. Yeah, Culson dies, but that's pretty much as tragic as it gets. Otherwise, it's filled with humor and great dialogue. Not comparing it to JLA because I loved this film too or saying that Avengers was bad.

All in all, we can't judge this JLA film until it's in theaters. Just like how most of us were judging every comic book film before it came out this summer, you don't know what to expect until the credits roll.
ProNoob - 9/28/2012, 2:47 AM
ok I'm a big Marvel fan but I still dont agree with your article. I mean Superman not realistic? A thunder god and someone who turns into a giant green destroying machine isnt exactly real. Yet that all worked. So mnaybe a JL could still work
loki668 - 9/28/2012, 4:16 AM
Too idiotic. Read and dismissed as the ramblings of a post-pubescent simpleton trying to be a troll.

Lord Loki has spoken

Y the [frick] is this under news?? -__-
MediaMan - 9/28/2012, 5:37 AM
I think a JLA film could work, and work well- emphasis being on the word "could." Don't agree with the original points too much, though. You could just as easily say no one accepts Christian Bale as Batman, since he's not Michael Keaton. Or Val Kilmer. Or George Clooney. Or even Adam West.

WB's biggest problem is that they're doing a JLA movie because someone else did The Avengers- and when you're second, you can never be first. They won't have the novelty effect of providing something no one's ever seen before. Plus, there's no way you can overestimate the value of Iron Man, Thor, Capt. America & the Hulk all having had their own movies to build up to Avengers. That was brilliant, huge, and obviously massively successful.

A movie just introducing Flash, GL, etc, in the film itself (despite their previous incarnations elsewhere) simply can't have the same impact.
