    JJ ABRAMS HUGE DC DEAL - Superman? Green Lantern? yes or no?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hZUQ-pJZjE

    i hope for a MOS 2, poor Henry, he needs a GOOD script and Director. i like Abrams and would like to see him direct MOS 2. I want DC back so bad.

    I was not a fan of the Aqua-man movie and don't mind if they re-boot and replace Jason Momoa. i like Gal as WW though

    Not a fan of his Star Wars or Star Trek movies. After what Snyder did to DC Abrams' movies could be better...but hopefully he is only directing because he is a terrible writer.

    Jason Mamoa should stay in the DCEU he'd be PERFECT as Lobo..that's who he thought the Aquaman part was....

    Keep : Gal/Henry

    Replace : Ezra Miller/Affleck (Even though he wasn't bad at times)

    Cast: Green Lantern/Martian Manhunter then we can get a TRUE JLA

    AND why is it DC TV gets it more than their movie division does?

    3.Flash
    4.Wonder Woman
    5.Green Lantern
    6.Martian Manhunter

    That's the only thing about the JLU cartoon that I didn't like they changed up the 7 members..

    I hope they don't recast really.

    Gal is great as Wonder Woman
    Henry Cavill can be great if they wrote the character right.
    Momoa, I don't think it was just him I think they were trying to make Aquaman more edgy because of the last few decades.

    Ezra Miller was NOT Flash he wasn't even close and he thought he did a good job....

    He not Barry Allen and never will be besides he wanted more control of this character and hopefully DC/Warner says no...Grant Gustin IS Barry Allen....

    I haven't seen the justice league films just the stand alones. So I can't comment on his being Flash.

    No need to recast... Just a good story and execution.

    Gal Gadot is PERFECT. Cavill is great, Mamoa is the Aquaman...Ezra Miller can pull a fun Flash with a heart... Work on that Green Lantern casting and it will be perfect. I know I'm in a minority but Affleck Batman is intimidating as what Batman should be.

    It'll be interesting to see where he takes things. Personally, I don't think a recast is as needed. Better writing will help because the actors were never the issue, as far as I'm concerned. As for Gal Gadot, she is today's Wonder Woman much like Linda Carter was the Wonder Woman of the 70's.

    This could be interesting. I actually quite liked Affleck as a version of Batman, the one they were actually aiming for. Miller I would like to see given a chance to come into his own as Barry; I do agree that GG is a better Flash overall. Gal and Jason are all sorts of fun, even if Aquaman is quite different from most portrayals. Henry needs his tie to soar; I hope he gets it.

    How about a Jon Stewart Greeyn Lantern?
    I grew up with Hal as Lantern, but Jon is more interesting. It would make a better movie.


    These movies don't have to be 100% special effects and interconnected. Hopefully what ever gets put on the screen wont feel like it's cranked out and disposable.
    I don't go to movies often, so it would be nice to watch one that doesn't think you've seen all the other ones.

    =====
    Like already mentioned . . .good scripts would definitely be needed. Maybe some cinimatic flair to. . . imagine if Alfred Hitchcock made a super hero movie.

    A full Green Lantern Corps movie would be pretty cool instead of just focussing one main character.

    Green Lantern Corps . . . I never found them interesting, but I can understand it would be a more original than the typical approach.

    Speaking of the typical approach . . . hero movies often do an origin story. Honestly I don't think it's always a good place to start. A good example is Spider-Man (2002). I know that story I don't need to see it again.
    I like the brief flashback style origin story in Batman (1989).

    Yup,glimpse of hero origin works as fine and as well as showing it as significant portion of the film.

    Personally, as long as it is told well, cinematic and well paced, I'm cool with that.

    I'm not sure the JJ Abrams deal is confirmed. I checked a few sites, but it sounds like it is just in the discussion phase right now or perhaps just a rumor. Anyway, WB seems to be doing pretty well without him. Aquaman made a ton of money and people responded favorably to Wonder Woman and Shazam. Joker has Oscar buzz and Birds of Prey looks quirky in a good way. Suicide Squad 2 with James Gunn is instant money. Wonder Woman 2 (1984) is another sure-win. Why waste money on Abrams? After making the correct call on dumping Zach Snyder, the DC films are doing great without having to be connected like the MCU.

    They could always use supplemental materials for the origins: Comics, Novels, and/or web series. Doesn't need to be in a film unless the hero is maybe C-Lister or lower. Batman, Superman, Spidey, and the Hulk everyone already knows. Adam Strange, Detective Chimp, Etrigan The Demon, The Swordsman, and Sunfire are lesser knowns and do need origins.

    Nice points.
    As long as it is told and executed well, origins or flash backs or whatever.

    They would definitely need to recast Ezra Miller. How the heck can you cast someone who can’t even run to be Flash of all characters? Have you seen that clip of Ezra Miller as Flash running through the streets? What kind of running was that? I face palmed in the theatre when I saw it. He looked like he was about to trip over his own feet at any moment? How the heck could that have been the best take? Imagine how bad the running was that was left on the cutting room floor.....

    i just want MOS 2 . Henry deserves another movie.. ALONE. its been 6 yrs now and henry is not getting any younger. we should of had a MOS trilogy by now. lets get it moving DC .. ugh

    and for crying out loud. make him use a cape for most of the film if possible. the cgi cape in MOS looked ridiculous fake. i loved what nolan did with his batman films

    the Superman franchise needs a reboot. The entire DCEU is going after a soft reboot. Things that worked are still there what not? well... put to pasture (Batfleck, Leto, Lex Esinberg, Steppenwolf)
    I see no Justice League 2 plans anytime soon, Cavill is the face of the Snyder-verse era, I mean he's ben too much associated to that poorly received trilogy just like Ben Affleck and sincerely he's already moving on with other projects.
    Not sure also Ezra Miller as the right choice for the Flash too, I have my concerns because that's a DC character so important that needs to be done right and if success, will launch another cinematic universe just like with Momoa's Aquaman.
    Not sure for a WW3 also after 84, I mean Gadot after that already has been part of a trilogy with WW 2017 being first, then 84 leading to the facts of Justice League. I think Tim Burton did great stopping after 2 movies, so Patty Jenkins maybe will feel complete.

    I predict a new Justice League with millenials, lead by Battinson, with recast for all the major roles.

    Cavill, Affleck, Mamoa, Miller and especially Gal Gadot brings these characters to life and as I can observed their worked hard to ensure to bring something to the characters they played.

    Casting is not the problem, they are awesome actors.... the problem is the story itself and storytelling execution.. plus maybe the unnecessary intervention of WBs higher up.

    Just learn to WW, Aquaman and Shazam movies, which should be the foundations DC should build on moving forward.
