EDITORIAL: Why Some Reasons Why The JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie Will Suck Are Invalid And They Are Debunked
LEVITIKUZ returns to the editorials. I looked at some reasons why people say the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie will suck and prove those points wrong. Hit the jump to check it out.
Man I missed the editorials. I have written 7 news articles, 1 scoop article, and 3 feature articles since my last editorial. Now I’m back. Have been busy and now let’s get down to business. There has been a lot of news about the Justice League film. With news there are complaints about how the movie will suck. These complaints are juvenile. I’m going to defend every negative reason people think why the Justice League film will suck.
1. IT IS BEING RUSHED!!!
Dude it's coming out in 3 years. They are focusing on one film for 3 years. Three years is plenty of time to make it good.
2. THEY ARE TRYING TO COMPETE WITH THE AVENGERS!!!
So? Is Marvel scared of a little competition? Let’s not forget they already were well into production for Justice League: Mortal back in 08 but it got canned. One of the reasons it got canceled is because they didn't want 2 Batman’s since Nolan was already working on his series. Now that Nolan's series is done they can do a Justice League movie. It just so happens that when Nolan finished Batman, Marvel released Avengers.
3. YOU NEED SOLO MOVIES OF THE CHARACTERS!!!!
Yea because everyone saw Thor, or Captain America: The First Avenger, or The Incredible Hulk. Just because you make solo movies of the characters beforehand does not mean people have to see them in order to watch The Avengers.
4. BUT LEVITIKUZ YOU NEED TO EXPLAIN THE ORIGINS OF THE CHARACTERS AND YOU CAN'T DO THAT IN ONE MOVIE!!!
You don't need to tell everyone's origin. You don't need Batman’s, or Superman’s, or Flash’s, or Green Lantern’s origin. You don't need to really tell Aquaman’s. Just bring him in like how he came in the New 52 Justice League story. The only origins that need to be told really are Wonder Woman's, Martian Manhunter’s and Cyborg’s. It isn't important to have solo movies. If each character has their own moment in the film then people will love the character.
5. BUT LEVITIKUZ MARVEL HAD SOLO MOVIES!!!
Everyone on the Avengers except the Hulk was B-List superheroes. The characters everyone knows from Marvel are Spider-Man, Hulk, X-Men, and Fantastic Four not Hawkeye, Black Widow, Nick Fury, Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. Marvel took their B-List heroes and brought them into the A-List. Everyone in the Justice League is well known.
6. THE MAIN FOCUS WILL BE ON BATMAN & SUPERMAN!!!
No crap. They are the 2 leaders on the team. Was the main focus not on Captain America and Iron Man in The Avengers? It has been confirmed that the main characters in the script are Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.
7. THE MARVEL WAY IS THE ONLY WAY!!!
Read my article I have already written about this. The Marvel Way is not the only way.
“EDITORIAL: The Pros And Cons of WB's Making The DC Movie Universe The Marvel Way and The Pros And Cons of Making The DC Movie Universe Starting With JUSTICE LEAGUE”
8. WHAT DOES WILL BEALL KNOW ABOUT WRITING A JUSTICE LEAGUE SCRIPT!!!
He had Mark Millar look it over and Mark said the following about it:
His take on the team is incredible. Very real-world and not at all what you might expect. WB has a chequered history with their superhero characters. They're great with their boy wizards, but less consistent with their DC stable. But my chum said that this could be a thing of beauty and has been in the works for a little while now, not just an Avengers knock-off. Best of luck to them. The tidbits I heard sound quite dark and mature, which isn't what I expected. But word on Gangster Squad is great too so I feel this is in really good hands.
I trust Mark’s work and his opinion. If you don’t that’s your problem.
9. NO ONE HAS BEEN CAST AND THERE IS NO DIRECTOR!!!
What type of a point is that? THEY HAVE 3 YEARS TO MAKE THE MOVIE!!! Casting and a director will be confirmed in my mind within the next 6 months.
10. AN ENSEMBLE MOVIE WITH NO BACKGROUND!!! IT CAN'T WORK!!!
GoodFellas, Ghostbusters, Watchmen, Fantastic Four, X-Men, The Expendables, Tropic Thunder, Red, A-Team, Wanted, Star Wars IV, Kick-Ass, and the Ocean movies are all films that had ensemble casts that have been successful and haven't had a film led to the movie.
11. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO INTRODUCE BATMAN, SUPERMAN, FLASH AND THE REST OF THEM?! THIS MOVIE WILL BE WAY TOO LONG!!!
They aren’t going to introduce them and explain their origins. Look at how the characters in The Avengers were introduced. Thor came out of nowhere, Iron Man was working on his building, Cap was boxing and Hulk was in some South American country I want to say. The thing about the Justice League is they didn’t have a group bring them together like how SHIELD brought The Avengers together. Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean it can’t be done well.
12. LOBO MAY BE IN THE MOVIE!!!
So? He won’t be the main villain because this news came after the script was written. Also this was a rumor that this site found. This site posted rumors about Spidey being in The Avengers and Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Azrael.
13. WB'S SUCKS AT SUPERHERO MOVIES!!!
Lets look at DC movies since 05. Batman Begins was great, Superman Returns was good, The Dark Knight was great, Watchmen was great, Johan Hex sucked, Green Lantern was let’s say average, The Dark Knight Rises was great. 4 movies were great, 1 was good, 1 was average, and 1 sucked. WB’s is 5/7 for movies that have been good and up. No one wants to put out a bad movie. Just because it’s a response to something doesn’t make it a bad movie.
14. ANYTHING OUTSIDE IF BATMAN & SUPERMAN HAS SUCKED!!!
The only Justice League member to be on the big screen outside of the big 2 was Green Lantern. How can you say everyone else will suck? Other characters they did were Johan Hex and Catwoman and they sucked. The only movie that wasn’t Batman or Superman and that WB’s took seriously and didn’t rush was Watchmen and that movie was great. If they take a similar approach that Watchmen had to Justice League, it could be great.
15. THIS MAY NOT BE IN THE SAME UNIVERSE AS THE MAN OF STEEL AND BATMAN REBOOTS!!!
This is the only real point I can’t defend. I hope this doesn’t happen. I believe if Man of Steel is great then the Justice League movie will be in the same universe as Man of Steel
16. HAVE YOU SEEN THE LIST OF DIRECTORS WB’S HAS FOR THE FILM!!!
Let’s look at this rumored list:
Ben Affleck-how is he bad? He directed The Town, Argo, and Gone Baby Gone. These are great movies. How is he a bad choice?
Brett Ratner-Ok I see why this maybe a bad choice.
Zack Snyder-He directed 300, , and Man of Steel. He is passionate about comic books and loves them. He is perfect for this movie.
McG-I see your point why he may be bad.
Wachowski’s-They have a love for comics. They’re movies are also visually amazing. They aren’t a bad pick.
I issue a challenge. Anyone who has any other reason that the Justice League movie will suck, post it. I will debunk that reason. What are your thoughts? Do you think the Justice League movie will soar or fall? Comment below. Peace.
