Justice League film [2015]

Discuss anything vaguely M&M related here, such as comics, movies, and action figures.

I agree, but I'm curious: what makes it a worse idea than an Avengers film or is that an equally bad idea?


I think the mahor difference is that Marvel is setting up the characters involved in the Avengers with movies that establish and develop them. And it helps that they're casting the same actors to play the same characters from movie to movie.

In short, the difference is coordination. Organization. The idea that one hand knows what the other is doing...and actually cares what the other hand is doing.

The same cannot be said of this JLA film.

I personally believe this is a bad move from Marvel. While it is true that Iron Man was a big hit the same probably won't be true for all the other lead in movies. Already the Hulk has failed to impress and i wouldn't be surprised if Thor and Captain America follow suit.

What this potentially means is that you will loose a large chunk of the general public as they realise that this new movie is based on a movie they either didn't really enjoy or didn't even bother to see.


As for balancing new characters i think New Frontier proved that it is entirely possible to create a Justice League movie which introduces lesser known heroes while weaving an interesting story.

I thought the new Hulk was received much better than the previous one.

But regardless, I'm gonna stick with the idea that building all your movies and characters around an actual, consistent plan is generally a better idea than not.

I agree, the new Hulk movie was a lot of fun, I do think it only did OK Box Office wise, probably do to how bad the last one was. But on it's own merits the new Hulk film ranked up their for me, easily better than FF movies and Spider-man 3.

The newer Hulk flick is in the top twenty, just above Wanted and Superman (1978), which edged the previous Hulk movie out of the bunch. It grossed slightly more in domestic and worldwide than the previous Hulk flick, and movies that have made less (much less) have scored sequels.

So, while it's certainly modest compared to Spider-Man and Batman, Marvel's likely to be satsified with how it did.

ahuh. I'll believe that they are actually going to make a JLA movie, when i see it. Frankly the JLA movie sounds like its going to be our version of this: http://badassdigest.com/2012/10/18/aww- ... xt-summer/
