I just watched the Justice League War animated film, why not just do that in live action to introduce all the characters and have a Justice League movie all at once, skipping this awful idea?

Started out well, but conspicuously missing "Fire Eisenberg and Batfleck," and #4 is a terribad idea.

That's the first DCA Movie that I've regretted.  I don't know what Andrea Romano shooting for , but if it was "good" she completely missed. Hal and Barry especially were like nails on a chalkboard.  And the writing.....

Clark as an arrogant demigod ;it's like he didn't grow up on a farm in Kansaas.  Diana is just annoying.  Bats was okay. Loved the end with Steve Trevor and Lois Lane standing next to each other while watching Clark and Diana eyefrak eachother.  Hal as the annoying moronic not-funny comic relief?

I'm not a fan of The New 52(although, thanks to the documentary on the disc, we know now that we can BLAME JIM LEE).  I LIKED Flashpoint animated(it needed one scene, where Lois's camera transmitts a live image of Barry being a superhero for his mom to see and be proud).  It looks like Son of Batman might not suck(Morena Baccharin? I'm in.)

And yeah, if not selling DC to Marvel, then at least they need to copy Marvel's approach.  Get the comic book crew to write the thing, have DC dictate the film, and tell the Warner people just to shut up with suggestions and follow orders.  And have Bruce Timm run the whole thing.

Here you go Mr. Article Writer and DC. Nice and easy.

#1. Tell any and all higher execs that have only read DC52 to leave the farking building and don't come back.

#2. No 20 minute origin story. If you don't know who Batman and Superman are, don't go to the farking movie or do some homework.
And here. "Who are you?"
"Diana Prince. I'm an amazon born on an island that cannot be found by man."
Annnnnnnnd... Scene. Next shot.

#3. Don't film it in that awful blue tint you used for Man of Steel to set a mood and make it look edgy. For farks sake, Avengers was filmed normal and made tons of money. Stop being DC long enough to show you can do something without gimmicks.

#4. Heroic moments. People need them. People want them. Green Lantern had almost none and when it did, your music was so horrendous and low, no one cared. Think helicopter rescue in Superman 1. Think final scene of Keaton's Batman as he stands on the rooftop, music blaring. Also, with this, think fun. Dark Knight was serious because it's Batman, but the Marvel movies are fun. Lighten the fark up.

Yeah I hate the NU52LOL for all the reasons you mentioned but they clearly want to move toward that so it would seem that that movie would be the way to go.

step 1: don't make a batman/superman movie
step 2: make a wonder woman movie with a cameo at the end with superman and the flash or aquaman
step 3: make a batman movie with a cameo at the end with lex luthor or some other villain
step 4: make a justice league movie.  now you have batman, superman, and wonder woman established, and the villain set up from the batman movie to provide a starting point.

Orgasmatron138: Step one: have a farking plan from the beginning.


Which they don't and everyone knows how desperately they want to "catch up" to Marvel and capitalize on the superhero craze before it dies, but the reason for Marvel's success has been years of decent movies and planning. Their approach is "we saw them do it, so therefore we already know how and can skipp all that crap and go right to BILLION DOLLAR ENSEMBLE MOVIE, while the internet an fans say "Give us more RDJ! Why did you cast Affleck?"

Step -1: Unmake Man of Steel.
Step 2: Mid-High level DC Universe Alien Baddy (equivalent to Apocalypse in Marvel, for example) attacks Earth unannounced, unheralded. Opening scene is Baddy coming in while looking at monitors showing "Who is this masked vigilante?" type news reports of DC Heroes... not all appearing in the film!
Step 3: Heroes appear from the woodwork to fight Baddy and each other. No secret identities revealed, no "Bruce Wayne". Only Batman, Green Arrow, etc.
Step 4: Heroes join up to defeat Baddy, declare a Justice League

NEXT MOVIES: 2 heroes have to deal with a situation, get to know one another. Superman and Green Lantern in outer space, Barman and Green Arrow in underworld/business dealings, Wonder Woman and Flash in horrible comedy, etc. Film concurrently if possible, like Lord of the Rings.

OR

One JL'er teams up with a hero who didn't appear in first movie. Get to know characters.

Both: minor cameos for rest of JL, even it is only "Flash to Green Arrow - we just intercepted a ship full of smuggled weapons heading for Gotham." "Understood, Flash. Thanks for the heads up." JL is a team, working together - show that. Heck, you could have some interesting teasers this way - "Is that Wonder Woman on TV... in an evening dress, on a red carpet? With... Lex Luthor!?!?? WTF??"

Also for both: less Spectacle/CGI, more character and story focus. Batman and Green Arrow in suits or more noir type movies,for example.

Endgame: Darkseid type enemy attacks Earth. Three movies to defeat him.

You could get dozens of movies out of this kind of formula and be different from Marvel.

Predictably follow in Marvel's footsteps? It would work better than their current plan, that's for sure. The biggest change they should make - use Lex Luthor to tie the universe together, just like Marvel used Nick Fury/SHIELD. Man Of Steel, for its myriad faults, set up a perfect universe for "legitimate businessman" Lex Luthor to seize all kinds of power and influence, and have a reason to think of Superman as a legitimate threat to humanity.

1. Start with Wonder Woman. The planet killer's effects on the Indian Ocean broke down the supernatural barriers separating Themyscira from the rest of the world. Steve Trevor is flying a post-Zod research mission for LexCorp when he discovers the island. Diana follows him back to America. Meanwhile, from somewhere else in the world, another barrier breaks down and Ares leads an attack on Washington DC. Diana reveals herself fighting Ares, and both are initially believed to be Kryptonians. Eventually she is accepted as Wonder Woman. Superman meets with her post-credits, saying they should stay in contact to keep an eye on the world.
2. Move onto Batman. Thanks to the philanthropy (really, smart investing) of Lex Luthor, Metropolis has completely recovered from Zod's invasion. But in the process, hundreds of thousands of jobs shifted to Metropolis from Gotham. Bruce Wayne, Luthor's corporate rival, seems completely helpless to do anything about it. Gotham is taken over by organized criminals (primarily the Black Mask), and the police rely heavily on a consulting detective called Oracle to hold back the tide. Oracle is revealed to be Bruce (probably working with Alfred and Barbara Gordon), who eventually decides to don a mask and cape and fight Black Mask directly. In the end, Black Mask is revealed to have a major financial connection to LexCorp. Post-credits, Lois Lane approaches Bruce for a private interview. She has discovered he is Batman, and tells Bruce that Superman and Wonder Woman want his help. He asks how a mortal can possibly help the two of them, and Lois explains that his skills, financial resources, and business relationship with Luthor are the weapons they will need more than anything.
3. Do Batman/Superman without Wonder Woman. Set up Vandal Savage as the villain, systematically attacking research facilities in Metropolis, Gotham, and Central City. In Central City, a freak lab accident happens while crime scene techs are present, sending Barry Allen to the hospital.  The research facilities are all revealed to be shadow Lexcorp operations, researching an artificial way to create eternal life (trying to re-create what happened to Savage eons ago). At the end of the movie, Allen wakes up with the powers of The Flash.
4. Justice League. Lexcorp has effectively taken control of NASA, SETI, and most of the world's military surveillance and scientific research satellites. He accidentally makes contact with Apokolips, causing Darkseid to turn his interest to Earth. When he arrives, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and Flash meet Martian Manhunter, who is part of an organization that has been trying to keep Darkseid away from civilized planets. At the end, Manhunter's organization is revealed to be connected to the Green Lanterns, who decide they need an agent of their own on Earth.

Oh dear lord, what is with this constant assertion that DC should be aping Marvel?

Look, I get the significant trouble Hollywood has with interpreting DC characters for the screen.  I get that Marvel has a better track record overall with movies, particularly in the run-up to The Avengers.  I get that the world is itching for DC's answer to The Avengers, and it's going to happen, no matter what cranky old nerds like me have to say.

But really?  Do we want so much more of the same so that comic book movies are a monolithic wall of suck that only exist to market other projects?

I don't agree we need a Justice League movie.  I don't agree that if such a thing were to happen, it shouldn't be animated.  But this idea that Marvel leads the way is just...crap.  If it means that the Justice League movie turns into a script penned by someone with a six-year-old mentality for action figures in a sandbox, I'd just as soon tell DC to send a message to Marvel that says "You know what?  You do that.  We'll just focus on comics because we'd rather deliver quality plot than marketing."

/not a comics fan, so I don't know if DC is actually capable of making good on that
//just sick of this idea that watching the movie is not the experience unto itself but having to deal with a franchise-worth of homework for appreciation
///I know, I know.  Lawn.  Off.  Blah blah.

So in essence... a group of WB studio executives are saying "Okay, Disney, you win. We won't try to get a piece of the multi-billion dollar cinematic pie that you are feasting upon. We're content to make a few hundred thousand bucks in the rapidly-dying comic book market, and that Timm guy seems to be turning a slight profit on his animated films. That's good enough for us."

Nope. Not gonna happen. They are going to try to imitate what they think Marvel Studios has done. The problem is that the executives in question don't understand why people are flocking to the Marvel films, and are imitating the wrong parts of Marvel's plan.

I hope not, but I can see that happening. I hope it's not another Pixar situation in which the studio produces movies that are good, but don't have the same heart and soul as the earlier works. All Star Superman. Under the Red Hood. Those are some of the best Superman and Batman movies ever made. The final scene in Red Hood still gets me, it's so perfectly heartbreaking.

I think they're just hit-or-miss, because Flashpoint Paradox was still pretty good. Never liked Gotham Knight, New Frontier, or Year One myself. Dark Knight Returns are faithful adaptations, but not as smooth to watch.  I think the book is just unfilmable. Apocalypse took a couple viewings to grow on me, but now I think it's one of the better ones.

Red Hood, All Star, Doomsday, and JL:Doom are the best of the bunch so far - any one of them could have been done as a live-action movie, scene for scene with no origin stories, and made a small fortune.

I'm not reading the new 52 because I'm old enough to have read Crisis On Infinite Earths when it first came out and I have an extreme aversion to retcons.
(See: teenage Tony Stark, who was already an alcoholic even though he never had a drink)
Anyway, the point that I'm getting at is that I started looking at the DCAU as all ElseWorlds stories, which makes them more enjoyable.
JLWAR was mildly entertaining, but this version of Darkseid was easily the worst version yet.
Thanks, Jim Lee.
Oh yeah, an end credit scene in animation?
Thanks Marvel.
As far as the SuperBat movie, I'll withhold judgment until all 17 screenwriters finish the script in 2020.

Marvel has a lot of decent to good storylines they can mine for plot in their movies. Avengers had heavy amounts of Ultimates part, Iron Man part 3 relied on Extremis, Thor used the small-town location/dropping of Donald Blake, and even the new Hulk movie took stuff from the seminal Bruce Jones run, and the new Captain America movie is drawing heavily from the Winter Soldier storyline.

Hell, Dark Knight rises took from Knightfall and No Man's Land.

Point being, DC has jackshiat for decent self-contained Wonder Woman stories. They did have a crapload of good GL stories, which is why they tried to make a movie, but it was still garbage.

Not to mention the fact that New 52 is also a garbage heap for mining in new content for story plots.

One JL'er teams up with a hero who didn't appear in first movie. Get to know characters.

Both: minor cameos for rest of JL, even it is only "Flash to Green Arrow - we just intercepted a ship full of smuggled weapons heading for Gotham." "Understood, Flash. Thanks for the heads up." JL is a team, working together - show that. Heck, you could have some interesting teasers this way - "Is that Wonder Woman on TV... in an evening dress, on a red carpet? With... Lex Luthor!?!?? WTF??"

Also for both: less Spectacle/CGI, more character and story focus. Batman and Green Arrow in suits or more noir type movies,for example.

Endgame: Darkseid type enemy attacks Earth. Three movies to defeat him.

You could get dozens of movies out of this kind of formula and be different from Marvel.

We SOOO need a "Barman" superhero!!! The possibilities are endless....


We just need to make sure he's named Norm as his secret identity.

So.
Why does DC keep putting out quality direct to video movies without actually turning them into feature films?
Let Marvel have the live action, DC focus on animated dominance.

Marvel's animation has been subpar for the most part, but The Next Avengers was pretty good.

Trocadero: EdgeRunner: Zombie DJ: "Who are you?"
"Diana Prince. I'm an amazon born on an island that cannot be found by man."

"Wait, you're telling me the G-spot is a goddamned island? And here I've been searching for it in vaginas my whole life!"

DC movies try too hard to be cool while Marvel movies just try to be fun.
Fun is more entertaining than cool.
