EDITORIAL: The Pathway To A Justice League Film

Yeah I know some of you guys are getting sick of these. But I just had to put my 2 cents in too.

We all have heard the giant tease that a Justice League movie is in the works. Some here believe it doesn't need solo movies to be sucessful others think the opposite. Me I'm in between. I would like to see Warner Bros do something similar to Marvel Studios. Something like this.

Man of Steel:Establish Superman, and hint at Gotham City. Maybe show it on the news, and have Clark question wether he should move there. Then later in the movie have him see the news again and see there's already someone protecting Gotham.

World's Finest: For some this may seem outta nowhere, but to do another Batman movie just seems superfulous at this time. So I'd say just bring him in like Marvel did with the Hulk. We already know him lets explore different territory. In this movie Superman and Batman could face a threat that is Wonder Woman related. Maybe someone like Ares is indirectly causing havok. But bring in a familiar villain or at the most a villain with connections(who isn't Lexi Luthor).

Wonder Woman:Explore her origin, and have her creation be the result of the worlds finest movie. This is when Ares can get the spot light he needs. While during her origin Diana should come to know how Ares was stopped the first time. At least at the 3rd act of the movie. Which will lead to a Trinity movie.

Trinity: An intergalactic foe I would prefer Brainiac to come down to Earth. As in his character searches for the planets knowledge. But in the Trinity he sees something special.

Superman represents what mankind can become.
Batman represents what mankind truly is.
Wonder Woman represents the change that must take place for mankind to reach its potential. The middle ground. This to me would be a good reason why Brainiac would want to study the knowledge of the Trinity .

Green Lantern:While attempting to stop the Brainiac invasion Abin Sur dies. And his ring goes to the nearest planet to find the next recruit. The main villain of this movie I feel would be best is Atrocitous. It could show the connection between anger and will power. And see wether which is better for use. I find this idea cool since Hal got mad while fighting Paralax and gaining the will power to beat him in the original Green Lantern.

Flash:Sorry I don't know much about Flash. But he is still very essential to the original Justice League team. Mirror Master or Captain Cold maybe. But all of this would lead up to the grand finale.

Justice League: Where Warworld descends upon the Earth. Calling for its most powerful protectors to fight back. Mongul, Lobo(who is only there because he gets to kill for free and has gets whatever he wants.) Atrocitous I'd like to see come back. Using WarWorld as a means to use means to gain an answer from the universe. The question being about the inevitable Blackest Night prophecy.

[frick] you asshole, why dont you make the movie instead.

You know, you could always ignore these editorials?

Meh. I ain't too fond on your Justice League idea. I ain't too found of your World's Finest plot either. I doubt Trinity would be too necessary. Why use Brainiac there. He could easily be made into something much more.

Well, at least I can agree on your idea to reboot the [frick] out of Green Lantern and not this "oooh, the sequel can save it!" shit.

You really don't seem to know too much about the characters, or at least, that's what you're projecting into your ideas.

Brainiac comes to Earth for its knowledge? What kind of technology would we have to offer his database, exactly...?

Although I am a proponent of the Justice League debuting first, I'm not stuck on the idea of movies being centered around the characters OF the Justice League. I realize you have to start somewhere, and it makes sense to start with the big guys, but there is a whole universe of characters out there.

What I would suggest is to show team-ups like there's no tomorrow. The Flashes and Green Lanterns are like brothers. Booster Gold and Blue Beetle are best buds. Ollie and Hal were best friends as well. Flash and Booster Gold (well, less Booster Gold, I guess) are time-travelers. You can get the "cerebro" experience just with any of those two characters.

Show their friendships. We don't need isolated heroes. No more Batman with his movies taking place on some different plane of existence where there's no Superman to fly a nuke out.

Batman doesn't only work with Superman either. They have a unique dynamic, but someone like Batman who has mastered nearly every fighting style, adapted some of his own, and developed responses for threats that come out of nowhere... needs to have been around.

On a side note, why would you want Green Lantern rebooted? Do you want to sit through another origin story of Abin Sur crashing to Earth and giving Hal his ring? If there's anything good that came from the movie, it's that the whole plot can be discarded like a Bond movie, and given a new and completely different story. Why waste that?

I wouldn't mind seeing it again. It's not as if the origin was some big and important thing in the film. I mean [frick], Hal doesn't really seem to question the fact he's in some strange room wearing a green uniform that lights up, he's more like "Yeah, I don't give a [frick] why I am wearing this, but damn I look goooood".

The film got some things right, but I want a reboot to see the origin focused on more and done better.

Yeah, WB is too desperate to take its time like this.
