57569-avengers_400
We all know that there’s a lot of Superhero Super Teams formed in the whole comic universe, but ever wonder which one is arguably the strongest? Better? The answer to that is no, no one is better than the rest of them, there all doing the same thing over and over again, they are just simply saving the world from terror , but it is up to you to rank them as your own.

Superhero Teams have been an incredibly large part of the superhero genre. Since of the inception of the first superhero team, The Justice League of America, comic fans have loved the interaction of their favorite heroes fighting evil. The following list based on fans pick for the top ten superhero teams. Each of the groups below takes into account the different incarnations and variations of those said teams, such as the Ultimate line of comics.

Here is a list of the TOP 10 superhero teams that was voted by fans in my opinion
1 – X-MEN
simone-bianchi-astonishing-x-men-28-jan-21-2009
The X-Men came about at a time of great strife and have long mirrored many of society’s issues about fearing those that are different then the rest of us. The X-Men take the top of the list due to many reasons. They have long been one of the most popular comics in history and have spawned a mountain of, “X-Titles.” Multiple cartoons, TV series, and now movies have made The X-Men a juggernaut in the world of comics.
2 –Justice League of America (JLA)
Justice_League_(Earth-16)
The Justice League of America is comprised of the top superheroes of the DC universe. With a roster full of A-list powerhouses, the JLA is arguably the toughest superhero team in existence. The JLA has been a huge part of the DC universe and has been widely popular since its inception.
3 – Fantastic Four
Fantastic_Four_Vol_1_525_Textless
The Fantastic Four is the first of the superhero teams to bring about a real humanness to the genre. With real world problems surfacing in the comic, this first, “family” of superheroes has been an incredible force in comics. Movies, cartoons, and more make the FF not number four, but three.
4 – Avengers
the-avengers
The Avengers assemble in position number four. There have been many different incarnations of the Avengers, such as the West Coast and Great Lakes avengers. With the latest comics The Ultimates and the New Avengers, The Avengers have rocketed to new heights. A movie is in the works based on The Ultimates and when it does, The Avengers will be knocking on the doors of numbers one through three.
5 – Teen Titans

The Teen Titans have had a rocky past, but presently, they are enjoying great success. A hugely popular cartoon has made the Teen Titans a smash hit with younger audiences and the comic has had an impressive run on the charts and with comic book fans.

6 – Guardians of The Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy has gone through a number of changes and is one of the most amazing teams of dysfunctional characters in comics. The current series lead by Star Lord is an amazing team with foul mouthed Rocket Raccoon, kind Groot, feared assasin Gamora and deadly Drax. Guardians of the galaxy has been part of some of the most popular cosmic adventures and has a cult following among Marvel fans.

7 – Justice Society of America (JSA)

The Justice Society of America has recently seen a rebirth into the world of comics. With a group of superheroes thought of as has beens and second stringers, the JSA have quickly shown that it has what it takes in the world of comics. We can also thank the JSA for being the first superhero team comic book. The success that JSA had early on spurred on the other comic companies to follow suit. Thanks JSA.
8 –  League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
the_league_of_extraordinary_gentlemen_fox
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen broke the boundaries of what is a “superhero team.” Comprised of some of the most popular characters in literature. The series was brought to us by superstar writer Alan Moore. Although they haven’t been around a long time and the book has been plagued with issues between Moore and DC, it is still a great comic book team.
9 –  The Defenders
Defenders_(Earth-12131)_001
The power cosmic, magic, brute strength and more make up this team equivalent to the superhero odd couple. The Defenders have a great history behind them and the latest incarnation of this superhero team has been widely accepted by fans. The Defenders are a rising star in the world of superhero teams.
10 – The Authority
79048-53964-the-new-authority
The Authority are one of the few superhero teams not from the big two, (Marvel and DC) but Wildstorm Publishing company, to make it onto the list. Although their might may have waned in recent years, The Authority is still ranked high on the list for how it has pushed the boundaries of comic books. The Authority is ultra violent, politically charged, and boasted the first openly gay couple. These items make The Authority controversial, talked about, and one of the top superhero teams of all time.
 

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE GREATEST SUPERHERO EVER!!


Captain america quotes


The greatest and the most popular heroes in comics and pop culture who represent the average humans with burden and responsibility are Superman, Batman, Spider-man and Captain America. They all are iconic and have a sense of responsibility to protect the innocent and help the weak at all cost. But of all of them I always believed that Captain America is the greatest and purest of all three and in this write up I’ll try to prove it. Because even if you don’t like the character, Captain America has to be admired and respected for being the person that he is and doing what only he can do.

Big time props should go out to Joe Simon and Jack Kirby for creating a truly inspiring hero for all kids to see in December of 1940 with Captain America #1 from Timely Comics (which would later become Marvel). In that era a character in comic books actually punched Hitler was a big deal. He was most popular and enduring in those days as a pop culture icon.

Captain America is one of the few who rose from this disabled kid who lived for patriotism of his country. He read the propaganda and he bought into it all the way. So much that he agreed to be part of an experiment that would allow him to “serve” his country as a supersoldier and help win the war and then realized the lies within the propaganda. But that didn’t stop him from loving his country and trying to live up to the values of what got him there, even if his own country didn’t stand behind them.

Captain America is again better than Superman who was the first true comic-book superstar risen from the pages of Action Comics #1 in 1938. Superman started the trend that followed later and put him up high in the pantheon of our modern-day heroes.

Superman’s biggest flaw is that he represent everything good. No one can beat him and he’ll always win over the wrong. This is what gives the character the biggest flaws compared to Captain America. Cap despite being a Super Soldier he is still a man. Despite being a weak kid from Boston who became a Super Soldier and a symbol of peace and freedom still has to train everyday to stay this way. His suit makes him a target of all enemies. He is the most respected and recognizable hero in the Marvel Universe who inspires a nation and even other super-powered beings as well as powerful Gods from far off fabled lands.

He can’t fly at super speeds, survive direct hits from atomic missiles and lift buildings over his head with ease. He is a human being who shows the common man that each of us possesses all the superpowers we need to be heroes ourselves. For this reason I shall always believe that Cap is a better “pure” hero than Superman.

Captain-America-The-Winter-Soldier-Speech

Another comparison is Batman who is just perfect. But he represents the darkness that Captain America can never embrace. Steve Rogers is not a rich kid like Bruce Wayne and whatever he has today is a result of his hard work and losses he suffered in the path. The two are very comparable when it comes to overall abilities, grit, determination and willpower. It’s anyone’s guess who really is the better (even though Cap is physically Batman’s superior). Both put their lives on the line against all comers and are usually the last ones left standing in battle. But that is where the comparison’s end. Batman uses fear, stealth, gadgets and his own plan regardless of what his teammates want also Batman is egoistic. Even Batman in the JLA/Avengers limited-series (2003-2004) steps back and is lead by, who else…Captain America!! Why? Because even he knew the Cap would do a better job than him. When it comes to pure RESPECT by his peers even Batman takes a back seat to Cap. This is why Cap is a much greater “pure” hero than even Batman.

Spidey is a true hero because the superhero life has never been easy for him. People always loved Cap (most of the time) and Superman. They’re recognized as heroes, supported by the government, and their battles are usually straight up right vs. wrong. Spider-man’s life, on the other hand, would be much better if he stopped being a hero. Being Spider-man has made his life hell and he sees no reward from it and is even recognized as a criminal, but he keeps doing it because it’s the right thing to do. Spider-man is a symbol for overcoming adversity, not giving up, and doing the right thing even when it hurts you. And this is everything needed to be a truly great “pure” hero. But truth be told, Spidey is this way because of Captain America. He looks up to Cap as the living, breathing and fighting symbol of freedom and wants to be just like him. That’s the big difference between the two; Cap is doing what he will always do in the face of adversity because he has too and everyone around him knows it and is inspired by it! And Spider-man is one of those many faces in the crowd looking at Cap for that inspiration. Even though Spidey is a “pure” hero in every sense of the word, Captain America IS the hero he’s trying to be.

Captain-America-10-Essential-Comic-Book-Runs

Captain America is the symbol of hope in despair, light in darkness and yet everything wrong in the world that he stands against for. His morals, values make him what he is. He stood for vigilantes and masked superheroes in Civil War and ultimately took a bullet because he believed in his principles and his values didn’t allow him to take Tony Star’s side.
Steve Rogers truly deserves respect and is the purest and greatest Superheroes ever.

Why Man of Steel Could Be One of the Best Superhero Movies of All Time


Superman is for sure the greatest superhero ever so in the age of Comic Book Movies dominating the box office Man of Steel needs to prove that and here is why Man of Steel will be one of the best superhero movies ever.

Henry Cavill As Superman

CavillSupesvault

A lot criticism was carried on about Zack Snyder casting a British actor as the very all American character of Superman. But with time it turned out that Cavill was born to play Superman. Concerns American accent and all doesn’t matter to me. He has dedicated him self to the role working out tirelessly, and it really shows when he puts on the suit.

Bow to Zod

Another reason why Man of Steel will be successful is because of the villain, Zod. Last time we saw Zod on the big screen was in 1980’s Superman 2. Zod is a great villain because he has the same powers as Superman. Anything Superman can do Zod can plus Zod has more experience in the battlefield. It will be interesting to see a conflict where Superman will have to use his brains over powers.

Superman will ‘kick ass’ in this film.

SupesZodfight

As critically acclaimed the first two Superman films are, however they are light on action. same is problem with Superman Returns. However, Snyder has expressed interest in showing Superman’s true power, and confirms that he will indeed ‘kick some ass’. From trailers only it sounds interesting.

The Supporting Cast

SupportingMOS

Snyder has managed to assemble a perfect set of supporting cast members for the almost other wise unknown Cavill. From Russell Crowe to Amy Adams there is no lack of talent in the movie. We were shown just how good Crowe, Clark’s biological father Jor-El, and Kevin Costner, his adoptive father Jonathan Kent, are going to be when the first trailer was released. When the second trailer was released we got to see how sweet and loving Diane Lane will be as his adoptive mother Martha. And while we haven’t really got to see much of Adams as Lois Lane I have high hopes for her. This makes the movie worth speculating.

Open up possibilities for future villains to finally make the big screen.

we’d all love to see other well-known villains of Superman hit the big screen (Brainiac, Darkseid, Doomsday, etc). Also, considering the interest in putting out a film adaptation of ‘The Death Of Superman’ (one of which, Superman Lives, was very close to pre-production and even had a teaser poster when it was canceled), I can see Warner Bros. wanting to bring Doomsday in a sequel (especially after the success of the Superman: Doomsday animated film released back in 2007), and the story would be an incredible live action film.

15 Characters To watch in 2013


Superior Spider-Man: My top fav in the list for a reason because Doc-Ock his ultimate nemesis switched bodies with Peter Parker who died in Doc’s body. Now Doc-Ock is operating as spider-man while Peter is out somewhere trying to get back in his body. It is most exciting to see how it ends up finally.Image

Cyclops: Charles Xavier’s biggest achievement turned into greatest failure and now mutantkind’s greatest hope is someone who is hated and loved for the same reason.There is a cyclops from the past trying to fix things and there is a cyclops who is here because of whatever he went through as young Scott. Lets see how this ends up. Also did I said Cyclops was right?

Image
Aquaman: The king of Atlantis. The ultimate badass Aquaman’s status is somewhat as of Cyclops. People love him and the old school fanboys still find him laughable. But whoever falls in the second category should check out their opinions because he is now in the center of JLA and not ready to take no for an answer, not even Batman

Image
Superman: The Trinity war begins this year Superman has always been the greatest character out there in comic world and with his return on Silver Screen he is definitely the character to look out for

Image
Arcade: Welcome to murderworld was all he said and a dangerous game begin with stakes as high as everyone’s life. Arcade is the center of Murderworld and he is hosting a dangerous game with bunch of young heroes fighting to survive. Image
Star-Lord: Guardians of The Galaxy are back and with their big screen adventure due for next year they are going to receive the top most attention by Marvel in coming days. You should be watching what cosmic threat is plunging around this time.Image

Jean Grey: This time a young Jean Gray is back in the present timeline from the past and what she saw here is very much disturbing for her. While it brings back old memories and wounds for both Cyclops and Wolverine the knowledge about the fact that she dies a tragic death in her future keeps haunting her. What happens next is something to look out for.

Image
Ultron: Three Words ” AGE OF ULTRON” screw Thanos, screw Loki and Screw Galactus. Ultron is the real danger here. In a continuity where he kills most of the heroes and accomplished his goal of fixing the ultimate error so now what. Ultron rules in an alternate universe and remaining heroes fight against him. If this is not the big thing then what else can be.

Image
Pandora: Just mentioning her here so that she could finally fix all the crapfest that is going in the name of DC new 52

Image
G.I Joe: Cobra’s one more mission failed last year and he has sworn revenge on GI Joes. He’ll be coming back with a vengeance. A major twist is already in rumors and a much delayed sequel to the disappointment called G.I Joe movie is finally coming out this year.

Image
Thor: Much successful 2011 movie Thor’s 2nd outing will hit theaters this year in november with is being directed by Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor. Thor’s much acclaimed comic series is already in news with The God Butcher running rampant. Three ages, Three Thor and one badass villains. What else do you want?

Image
Constantine: After bidding farewell from vertigo imprint and kid friendlier version of Constantine is here who is not foul mouth and probably doesn’t smoke. With a new era starting in history of this character it would be cool to see how DC follows the legacy.

Image
The original Star Wars crew: what Dark Horse has in store for us in 2013 hasn’t been seen since its brilliant Dark Empire series that premiered more than 20 years ago. And even though you might think Disney will take its time with its first new Star Wars project, we wouldn’t be surprised if we see some other Star Wars projects released from Disney by end of 2013.

Image
The Riddler: Few people can make Batman’s life hell as much as possible. He is not yet mentioned in new 52 but hints are being dropped around that he’ll be back in Batman’s life at some point in this year. Also another Arkham game will be dropping by the end of this year so it would be interesting to see if Riddler is still the mastermind or someone else takes his place.

ImageJustice League Dark: Dark Universe movie being planned by Del Toro is something I am waiting for and the team adventures taking places in darkest corners of DC Universe is treat with every issue. Image

Why a Justice League movie is destined to fail


Let’s compare the number of films Marvel has released in last year vs the number of films DC has released in last year? Is obvious that you can remember way more modern films based on Marvel comics than on DC. Marvel tried and they failed many times with a lot of their superheroes but they keep releasing films and finally manage to craft their art with this new wave of Marvel hero films starting with Iron Man (2008).

These new films that Marvel has released (Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk)  are actually good, decent films. I mean the characters are well-developed and also they are incredibly well adapted to the big screen, the films are entertaining and you can really relate to these heroes

And what about DC? well… Nolan’s overhyped Dark Knight Trilogy was enough to battle all these Marvel superheroes films alone, but now its over, The Man of Steel is the next in line, but , Superman can’t battle alone The Avengers as Batman did. Batman is gone now, Superman alone and DC is pretty much screwed.

But now let’s think this trough Ok? After all those films that Marvel has release, hero film after hero film for this last decade. I’m afraid that there’s no room for DC heroes anymore and from now on DC heroes are pretty screwed on screen.

And these are my reasons why DC heroes are destined to fail in film from now on:

1) Marvel already owns the superhero film genre which is something that they have been exploiting for the last ten years that I’m afraid that real soon people will start to get a little bit tired of superhero films, specially films that introduce a new hero right from the beginning; so right now is a little too late to start releasing films about all the super heroes that you have.

2) And most importantly. With the exception of Batman, DC heroes do not work as well in the big screen as Marvel heroes, and this is the reason why: DC heroes are not as relatable to the audience as Marvel heroes are. Contrary to DC heroes, Marvel heroes are charismatic but the most important thing about them is that, it’s really easy to relate to them (Spider Man, Hulk, Iron Man, Wolverine, even villains like Magneto) everybody can relate with at least one of them in some kind of way.  Almost any teenager can relate to Spider-Man specially nerdy boys, I’m sure that you know someone who behaves like Tony Stark and really relates to him. Anyone who considers himself as a social recluse can relate to any of the X-Men or to Hulk. And this happens because Marvel heroes are imperfect, that’s what makes them relatable and that’s what audiences want.

DC heroes on the other hand, they’re not really that relatable and some of them are just too perfect that you can even consider them they are considered as gods in their universe, Hardly anyone can relate to Superman or Green Latern or Aquaman or Martian Manhunter. But my point is that those heroes just don’t have that same effect and they will not be that interesting in the big screen to watch. And that’s why I think that in an enviroment where Marvel’s imperfect and charismatic heroes rule, there’s no room for DC superheroes and they are basically destined to fail.


And the reasons behind it are

THE PLOT

I can see the plot of Justice League playing out in one of two ways. The first, and most probable, is that WB will stick to a safe formula instead of innovation. The film will focus on Batman and Superman and… not much else. Batman and Superman are DC’s most well known and loved characters, so they will put them at the forefront of the film and push everybody else to the side. Sure, Flash may have a badass moment or two, and Green Lantern’s comments will be funny, but other than that, they will be cardboard cutouts there only to enhance to scale of the film. The bulk of the character development will focus on Superman and Batman’s differing views of how to lead the team, attack the enemy, the importance of Earth, self sacrifice, ect, ect, ect. The rest of the crew (save maybe Wonder Woman becoming a romantic interest) will have almost no sway in the events that are going on and will only be there to increase the CGI fireworks show at the end. Which begs the question: Wouldn’t a Superman/Batman team-up be a much better option at this point? At least until they get the universe up and running properly.

Option B is that they try to include everything. Every character’s background (in some way or another), their personal development, the villain’s development, their team relationship, the people they care for, and more. And this will obviously be a disaster. To pull this off, they’d need a genius/madman to write it and a time window of 4-5 hours. It just can’t be done.

6. LACK OF CONVICTION

When Marvel decided to commit to its vision of an onscreen shared universe, they knew there would be no stopping that train. And yet, they went full steam ahead setting the first major plot points in Iron Man 2, even with their two riskiest films (Thor and Cap) on the horizon. If any of these movies flopped, the universe could come crumbling down. But they stuck by their guns. Hell, when Joss and pals first started filming Avengers, Captain America’s first movie wasn’t even released yet and here he was competing for the most screen time of all the characters. The point is: Marvel took a gamble and stuck by it, and all their hard work paid off big time.

The folks over at Warner don’t seem so confident in themselves. They hope to recreate the success of The Avengers without putting in any on the risks or work. One of the reasons we haven’t gotten any major news about the film is because they’re waiting to see how Man of Steel plays out. They want to know how interested people are with Superman so they can decide how much of the film he should take up. The hesitation about the fate of Green Lantern (To retcon, or not to retcon…) proves this fact more. One of the reasons they’re holding off on the solo movies is to see who people like more in JLA. Warner Brothers can’t just change the plays as they happen and hope for the best, they need to construct a plan with a solid base and buildup and then stick to it. Otherwise the universe becomes a jumbled mess of retconed events and dead plot threads.


5. Lack of foundation

If marijuana is a gateway drug, then Marvel Studios must have been higher than Tony Stark after he first tested the altitude limits of the Iron Man suit off the response of the film. Iron Man earned a 94% Rotten Tomatoes score – identical to that of The Dark Knight – and also went on to earn over $585 million worldwide. Iron Man’s success proved that Marvel Studios could flourish with characters not named Peter Parker, and laid the groundwork for the films that would ultimately comprise the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That universe was the foundation that would generate the audience buy-in that was necessary for The Avengers to be the box office behemoth that it was.

By comparison, a Justice League of America film would have no such foundation. Assuming the screenplay for the film includes the original seven members of the Justice League, only three members have had recent films: Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern. Unfortunately, none of those films are likely to factor in a JLA movie at all. Superman last appeared on screens in 2006′s Superman Returns. Although it was financially successful, Warner Bros. did not feel it warranted an investment in a sequel with President of Production Jeff Robinov stating in 2008, “Superman Returns didn’t quite work as a film in the way we wanted it to.” Being that Batman retired at the end of The Dark Knight Trilogy, Christopher Nolan’s interpretation of Batman will not be part of a JLA film either. Finally, Green Lantern was such a critical and commercial flop that Warner Bros. will probably cut ties with Ryan Reynolds’ take on Hal Jordan also.

4. No Star Power

With no audience familiarity with the characters as they would appear in a JLA film or the actors who portray them, audience buy-in becomes extremely difficult and will rely heavily on marketing. This lack of any real star power makes marketing the film difficult

3. Who is the Leader

Superman is clearly the leader of the Justice League, but for marketing purposes that may not work. Unless Henry Cavill can do what Robert Downey, Jr. did with his take on Iron Man, Warner Bros. will need an actor with whom they can market the film. The director of the Justice League film will have immense pressure to wisely cast the League member roles. Since there will be no test solo runs like there were for Eric Bana and Edward Norton who were ultimately replaced in The Avengers, the casting will be a one shot attempt. The results of miscasting have been seen in flops like Fantastic Four and Green Lantern. If the marketing department ultimately determines that having Cavill as the face of the film won’t work,  the next logical character to use to sell the film will be Batman which is practically impossible to find an actor who could be hyped and prepared to step into Batman’s shoes

2. The Batman Dilemma

The issue with finding an actor to portray Batman is only the start of the problems. As the Joker told Batman himself: “You’ve changed things, forever. There’s no going back.” The Dark Knight Trilogy pushed the Batman character ahead light years from where Joel Schumacher had him. There is no denying that any future take on Batman will be inferior to Nolan’s vision. Batman’s role in the Justice League is pivotal, and so he cannot be written out or minimized in the script. Because a recent take on the Caped Crusader was so groundbreaking, even a decent take on the character in a Justice League film may leave fans underwhelmed.

1. NO SOLO MOVIES

Other than next year’s Man of Steel, WB/DC will have no solo movies to introduce the characters and lead into the JL movie. This raises two major problems right off the bat. The first is that we will have no previous introduction to any character in this version of the DCU other than Superman. While some, like Batman, have had enough time in the spotlight for the general public to know the character; the likes of Wonder Woman and The Flash have never been in any movie to date. And while The Flash’s back-story could be lazily explained in exposition, (“I got struck by lightning, I have superpowers.”) A character like Wonder Woman can’t strive off her name alone and needs a proper, and carefully handled, introduction; as opposed to: “Hey, I’m Wonder Woman. By the way, the Greek gods exist, Zeus is my father, I come from an ancient island of warrior women that have developed super strength over time and my whip is magic! What’s your story, Batman?” The same applies to Aquaman, and his Atlantian history, if WB chooses to bring him in.

So I don’t know what the hell is DC going to do now, a rushed Justice League film is destined to fail and we all know that.

There’s only one thing that I know DC could do, to completely kick Marvel in the balls and reinvent the whole comic book film genre forever. I will summarize this in just one word … Vertigo…

My ideas for how to make a Justice League movie in future


I think everyone agrees about a Justice League movie is needed to be made. As we know, such a film came close to reality a few years ago in the form of Justice League: Mortal, but eventually the project never took off. As of right now, whether or not WB will go ahead with a new project has yet to be determined. A few months ago, it was reported that Warner Bros. would release a Justice League film in 2013, when Man Of Steel was still slated for late 2012. But with that film being pushed to summer of 2013, there’s no way a Justice League movie would be released at the same time. Also, with Green Lantern recently bombing at the box office (barely making its budget), it seemed unlikely that WB would put out a DC property other than Superman or Batman. Then we got the rumor that Warner Bros. would release a Justice League film in 2015/2016, after sequels to Green Lantern and Man Of Steel. That has not been confirmed or denied yet. Few things I want to see done in a possible JLA film.

Set the film in a shared universe.

One of the things that people want to see the most in a Justice League film Characters in previous films to be in the same continuity (similar to what Marvel’s doing with The Avengers). JL: Mortal didn’t had any such plans, they were going to make spinoffs starring Wonder Woman and The Flash. Hopefully that most recent rumor about a Superman cameo in Green Lantern movie and then them being in the future Justice league film, Granted, Nolan’s Batman will be too difficult to fit into a fantasy-filled film such as Justice League, so a Batman reboot a couple years later is just fine. Anyways, there’s no reason Cavill and Reynolds can’t come back. Cavill looks awesome as Superman, and he is really working hard for bringing him to life. And say what you will about the Green Lantern film, but I personally think Reynolds wasn’t a problem at all. He can play serious characters well (see Buried), and Hal Jordan was written as not being very serious one too many times. Reynolds was good with what he was given, and has potential to improve with a better script. With that said, he and Cavill should definitely reprise their respective roles should a JLA film be set in a shared universe.

Establish other characters in Separate movies

I don’t mind if they release films for Atom, Green Arrow or Hawkgirl after the first JLA, and fit Martian Manhunter’s origin in the film itself, but a couple characters need their origins to be told. The Flash has been a project that’s been off-and-on for a few years now, and it seems like WB is ready to release it (hopefully) in a couple years or so. (Then again, with Green Lantern bombing, it could’ve pushed The Flash back) Also, Wonder Woman is a character who should’ve been adapted into film a long time ago. It’s interesting to see Marvel release films for Punisher, Ghost Rider, Blade and Thor before DC can release something for one of its biggest characters (and the biggest female comic character ever). Hopefully DC will release a Wonder Woman film in a few years.

 Keep the original roster.

With Geoff Johns reportedly writing a Justice League treatment, I hope it doesn’t mean we can’t get the original lineup of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter. I don’t mind a few cameos in first JLA movie,What I’d imagine for a JL trilogy is first film, start out with the main lineup; second film/third film, bring in other characters aforementioned like Steel, Hawkgirl, Ray Palmer etc

 Attach a good director, good writers, etc.

As said before, in the recent rumor of Justice League arriving by 2015/2016, Geoff Johns was writing a treatment for the film. That’s what happened with Green Lantern, and we all know how mediocre the script was. But Johns didn’t write the script; the script has 3-4 different writers. Not only is that writing team been hired to pen a Green Lantern sequel, they were also hired to write The Flash. I would be worried of the team doing the Justice League film, but the rumor stated that David S. Goyer was being pursued to pen the screenplay. With his excellent work on Nolan’s Batman trilogy. his storytelling can be really interesting

I’m really enjoying his current work on Justice League (despite the occasional hit-and-miss dialogue), and with a seasoned writer like Goyer doing the screenplay, it should be good then.

As for directors, it’s kind of tough to choose one personally. Christopher Nolan’s out of the question, otherwise Christian Bale could possibly reprise his Batman. Zack Snyder probably won’t do it, and no way in hell should Martin Campbell do it. I’d love to see someone like JJ Abrams (Star Trek), Peter Jackson (Lord Of The Rings), Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) or Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy) directing a Justice League film. I’d add Joss Whedon to the list, but since he’s directing The Avengers…yeah, it would be awkward.

That’s it for now Just hope that a JLA movie comes up soon
