    According to clever movies on youtube, it's been confirmed that there will be a justice league movie after "batman vs. superman" film.  Apparently, "Batman vs. Superman" will lead into "Justice League", and both movies will be shot back to back.  Meaning Zack Snyder will be directing both movies.  Anyways, what are your thoughts on this?  Are you excited?  Or do you feel like they're rushing things?  Please share your thoughts with us.

      I am half excited and half disappointed because I feel like at this point they are only doing it to compete with Marvel because why do a JL movie when you haven't established the other founding members such as flash, GL, Aquaman etc.

        I can see what you're saying, but we have to look at this from a business perspective.  If you look at WB's track record of all the superhero movies that didn't feature batman or superman, then you'll notice they all flopped for various reasons.  Sure you can make up all the excuses you want on why films such as steel, green lantern, cat woman, and supergirl bombed, but the reality is they all still flopped.  Hence, it's kind of expected why wb is kind of gunshy about doing solo films first before justice league. 

        Also even if they do try to replicate what marvel did, i think they might also be scared that people will automatically say they're ripping off marvel; hence they're trying to do it in their own way that's different than how marvel did it.

        I personally think it's too early to tell.  I know one person i talked to about this brought up a great point about how not everyone who saw the avengers necessarily watched all the other solo movies leading up to it.  I think it's possible that they can get away with this, but at the same time, the justice league movie isn't going to have the hype going into it like the avengers did because they had years to build up hype for it.

    Not surprising...DC's hoping to kickstart an "Avengers" style mega franchise.

    I'm so excited about this!

    Has anyone been following the show Arrow? The show brings on a bunch of characters from the DC universe, and I'm hoping that they'll all be the same actors in the Justice League movie.

    Also! Flash has gone through his accident in Arrow. He's currently in a coma, but I've heard that he also is going to get his own series.

    So yeah, DC is doing a hard comeback, but unlike the Marvel universe, they're accomplishing a lot via tv series. smile

      that would be interesting if they went that route.  It's a shame that fox's gotham city won't be part of the dccu continuity.

        DC's Arrow is such a great show I can not wait for the Flash show. I am also looking forward to Gotham.

      I can't stomach some of the character alterations in "Arrow". I guess I'm an old-school purist, but that is not Roy Harper to me. Not at all. (Then again, DC did him a great injustice by deleting his history for New 52 and giving him a whole new personality. Forever their whipping boy...)

    I knew it was coming—and fast—after all the casting going into "Batman vs. Superman" so I'm not surprised. I'm not excited, since I never hold out much hope for comic book movies being solidly good. But I'm interested to see how it goes.

    It seems to me DC is wisely using their two box-office powerhouses (Superman and Batman) as the doorway to introduce other characters, and I can understand why they would immediately follow-up with a JLA movie instead of putting the funds, effort, and hopes into solo projects. After all, it's already a given those powerhouses (still Cavill and Affleck) will be founding the League.

    Which is, I'm hoping, what this first JLA movie will be about: the founding of the League. DC has been after a new generation of fans, so it wouldn't be unlike what they did with their DCAU: bridging the gap after "Flashpoint Paradox", they re-introduced us to the League in "War"—and using the updated New 52 characterizations (Superman's demeanor is now so "modernized" just like in "Man of Steel".)

    Then once the League is founded and they introduce the heavy hitters to the world, I'm sure we can expect some solo films to continue the legacy, with perhaps several character cross-overs as well as more JLA movies. It could work.

    I just want wish they would focus on story and characters first and foremost. These days Hollywood is more concerned with making CGI blockbusters, putting more effort into flying fight sequences and things blowing up, rather than quality dialogue and deep character moments. hmm

    I've always been more of a Marvel Buff personally, but it does make a lot of sense. Marvel has had sensational hit after hit with Iron man, Wolverine, Thor, Captain America, and the Avengers was simply awesome. DC needs a response team (in my Nick Fury voice) lol..... I think its a good idea, Hopefully the movie will be good.

    As a reader of DC Comics since 1965, their decision to ram through their DC New 52 reboot/restart totally soured me on the company and their characters. As science fiction author Robert A. Heinlein used to say about authors and readers: 'Authors compete for their readers' beer money. If a reader likes the author's stories, he or she will spend their beer money on those stories. If they don't like the author's stories, they'll go back to buying beer!"

    The only DC Comics I buy since September 2011 are their Showcase Presents black and white reprints of the 50s/60s/70s/80s and the occasional back issue. I have not and will not see any of their movies or television programs after that time.
