Lately, I’ve been posting in articles a Justice League trilogy idea I have. I feel that I should make this an article and explain why. Not there is a major difference between what could happen in a DC Universe happen and what could happen in the Marvel Univere (the Marvel Universe I’m talking about is the Disney one. Sorry Fox but you can’t win this.). DC has all their heroes and villains, Marvel doesn’t. DC has all their major villains, while Marvel is missing some big guns. Marvel is without Dr. Doom, Magneto, Apocalypse, Doc Ock, and Galactus. Those are some big guns. DC you have all their villains so use them wisely. Here is my idea for not only a Justice League trilogy but ideas beyond a trilogy.

JUSTICE LEAGUE



Heroes: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash (don’t care if its Wally or Bart), John Stewart Green Lantern, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter

Villain: Darkseid


I don’t want to say “let’s make it like The Avengers” but at the same time, because the Justice League and the Avengers is so similar it’s impossible for them not to be influenced by one another. The story idea is mostly based off the New 52 Justice League story. The main difference is instead of Cyborg we have Martian Manhunter. I chose John Stewart over Hal Jordan because John is by favorite Lantern and also to show people that the 2011 Green Lantern film isn’t involved with this. Some fans are already saying that people will get Darkseid and Thanos mixed up, so if people are going to get them mixed up then if there is a new Hal Jordan then why people would mix the Hal in JL and the Hal in GL? Let’s be honest, no matter how much we defend Green Lantern in the end we were all disappointed in the film. I rather the Justice League not be a part of that film. Darkseid is a great villain to use. He is known to the public. Darkseid is also a threat where one can say “Not even Superman can stop him alone.” It’s important for the first villain to get the Justice League to come together be stronger and more powerful than Superman because people will just say “Why does Superman need help? He’s Superman.” Have Darkseid invade the Earth but explain why of course. Also keep the story simple. This should introduce people to these heroes. Save the mind binding, Chris Nolanesqe, story ideas for future films. It’s not smart to start that way for the first film. Also have Aquaman introduced like Wolverine in the X-Men. Like in the New 52 Justice League, have Aqauman come up from the water and have him say “They attacked down below. So who’s in charge? I say me.” Have Flash make some jokes and then include THAT Aquaman scene. We all know what scene I’m talking about.

After Credits Scene: Bruce Wayne invites Clark Kent to Wayne Tower. He tells Clark that he is Batman and he knows Clark is Superman. He shows Clark some plans for the Watchtower.

Justice League: Tower of Babel



Heroes: Heroes: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash (still don’t care if its Wally or Bart), John Stewart Green Lantern, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg

Villain: Ra’s al Ghul


First off, many people wonder “how do you top Darkseid in a sequel?” YOU DUMMIES YOU DON’T!!!! You can’t find a villain more powerful than Darkseid and you shouldn’t be worried about finding a villain you can top him. You just have to find a villain who is as deadly as Darkseid. Ra’s al Ghul comes to mind. A sequel should be smaller but darker. More personal. We have the Justice League together, now let’s cause friction between this lead. Ra’s might not be more powerful but he’s as deadly.

My idea for a second is based off the graphic novel Tower of Babel. Some parts also come from the animated movie Justice League: Doom. I like the idea of maybe the Royal Flash Gang or some type of super villain team foe that keeps the Justice League busy to began and also they use high tech so that call Cyborg in for help. While the JL is busy with that, Ra’s sends Talia to the Batcave to steal Batman’s plans on how to defeat the League. Ra’s goes through with Batman’s plans and goes after the members of the Justice League. Batman is unable to save them because, like in the comics, Ra’s steals his parent’s graves and Batman’s attention is more focused to that. As Batman goes to save the Justice League, he calls Cyborg for backup. He tells them he needs help to save the Justice League. Now I don’t want to tell the whole book by here is my idea for an ending. After Bruce gets his parents bodies back, before he puts them back in, he talks to Alfred. Alfred tells him that he should be worried. There is no way they can trust him again. Batman calls Superman to the Batcave. They talk and Batman says that because he broke everyone’s truth that there is only one way he can earn it back and Superman must do it too. He must reveal his identity. As I said in the first film, Batman and Superman are the only ones who know each other’s identity. The Justice League calls Cyborg to the Watchtower and tells them that because of their help through this crisis, they are now members of the Justice League. When bringing up what to do with Batman, Superman says Batman is in the next room. Batman is in the next room. He states why he may those plans and reveals his identity to them. Superman does the same which prompts Green Lantern and Flash to reveal them. Batman stays in the League.

After Credits Scene: Bruce Wayne returns to rebury his parent’s graves with Alfred’s help. After they are finished, Bruce wonders “why did Ra’s only take my parents graves and not Jason’s grave?” Bruce digs up Jason graves, opens the casket, and finds out that Jason’s body is gone

Justice League 3



Heroes: Heroes: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash (asd I said before, don’t care if its Wally or Bart), John Stewart Green Lantern, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Static Shock

Villain: Brainiac


As I was thinking of who to use for the third film, I wondered who would be perfect. I don’t like the idea of the Legion of Doom or any super villain themed team up yet. I don’t like the idea of Vandal Savage just yet. The best idea I have is Brainiac. In the world we live in, we are so depended on technology. I would like an idea that has Brainiac have an invasion like Darkseid. I thought about including Lex Luthor but took him out. We will have three new members of the Justice League. Green Arrow and Black Canary will join as like a two-for-one deal. Also joining will be Static Shock. Before anyone says anything about Static, I’m a big fan of his animated series and he’s one of my favorite characters and I just want him to get some respect.


IDEAS FOR FUTURE FILMS


JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS

VANDEL SAVAGE AS A VILLAIN

JOKER AS A VILLAIN

LEGION OF DOOM

INJUSTICE SOCEITY

RETURN OF DARKSEID

THE ONCE AND FUTURE THING

STARCROSSED

I also think Darkseid should be the first villain and Ra's the second. Not sure for the third movie, i would go with that A epic JL trilogy:

Prelude: World's Finest

1. Justice League loosely based on the New 52 with some element of New Frontier with Darkseid and his army.

2. Justice League loosely based on Tower of Babel and Doom.

Prelude to the epic final: World's Finest 2, loosely based on Kingdom Come and The Dark Knight Returns focusing on both Superman and Batman coming out of retirement.

3.The Epic final of Justice League loosely based on Kingdom Come opposing Superman Justice League to Batman's Outsider and President Luthor Justice League of America.

Great write up! I agree that they should have John Stewart instead of Hal Jordan. People may get confused or just plain annoyed after the 2011 movie.
Also, I think that the trilogy should include Starro in the first movie and at the end of the movie we discover that Darkseid was the cause of the invasion and in the second have Darkseid as the main villain and by the end of that we discover that Darkseid was in fact working with Darkseid. at the beginning of the third one we find out that Brainiac betrays Darkseid and carries on the invasion and attempts to destroy all of humanity.
The Heroes of the Justice League and the Legion of Doom (which will be introduced between solo and minor team-ups between the movies) will have to work together and defeat Brainiac.

It don't matter if they use Darkseid for movie one or not cause to the general audience, he will be considered a Thanos rip off. I still say that Darkseid needs saved for a sequel and that the roster for the first movie should be: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Green Lantern. I find it hard to come up with a way Aquaman could be useful (I have done homework and still confused on how he is usual to the team). I would like to see Martian Manhunter in the movie but I would save him for also a sequel.

I'm mostly Marvel but not strictly and I like seeing DC movies succeed and I want to see Justice League do well. But, it's kinda hard to make a Justice League movie that is totally different. There would and probably will be similarities. Personally, I'm wanting a Flash trilogy more than a Justice League movie and I will admit, I get caught up in the "war" between Marvel and DC and I enjoy the debates. I really have never felt that DC was as good but, I do want to see them succeed. I feel Lobo is the best villain to go with for a first movie.

As far as a Justice League film series goes. I don't know much about them, so I decided what would be best for a trilogy. I say base them mostly on the New 52. Give Lobo a villain role in the first movie, have movie two be Identity Crisis and then have Darkseid be the villain in the third movie.

I don't think darkseid should be a starter villain he's much bigger than that, he should be saved for a sequel for 2 reasons 1) justice league is going to be released in 2015, the same year as avengers 2 which is using thanos, and thanos is being introduced in GOTG, the general public are going to think justice league are copying avengers. And 2) darkseid is the biggest and most powerful villain in the DCU, using him to start off is really blowing the deck because any villain after him is going to be much weaker in comparison. This isn't saying anything bad about the justice league villains, that's a compliment to darkseid. It's the same as say the first avenger movie villain was galactus, Any other villain after that won't match him.

In my eyes the only villain that would be perfect for the justice league movie would be Despero, then the sequel would be vandal savage hiring villains like the royal flush and amazo, and in the end he would join the legion of doom. In third movie use Darkseid and have anti monnitor in the fourth to introduce the crime syndicate.

About time you did another Justice League article.
DioFoRio - 12/8/2012, 12:51 AM
JL will be like the Avengers the way the Avengers is like JL the cartoon. They share the same DNA it should be fun ,funny, thrilling and action packed.
gmoney0505 - 12/8/2012, 7:33 AM
Only people that would say Darkseid is a Thanos ripoff would be people who have heard from they comic friends say that. No prior history with either of those characters, and the general audience will have no reason to even mix the two up. Plus alot of general people watched Darkseid in JL and Superman than people think. Why people think general audience is not aware of different characters?

Its a great Article to read but still there isnt any Release date for Justice League. even Fox surprised us all yesterday with Fantastic 4 Reboot release date..Marvel is making films like Juggernaut. but in WB/DC case still there isnt any clue of any sort. this is what Fan dont like..but we only can hope for the best.
Happy11 - 12/9/2012, 3:11 PM
From speaking to non cb fans they know who darkseid is from cartoons but haven't a clue who thanos is. Also they had heard of the JL but thought the avengers was a 60s British tv show.
blackster - 12/9/2012, 11:02 PM
warner bros sucks, and justice league will fail.
we should all just accept that and move on.

it's a shame really, I actually like DC better.
