I just saw a Dr. Strange movie on Netflix that was fucking awesome. Batman has always been my favorite. Far as bad guys go I really like Magneto a lot because he's not evil per se, but just kind of awesome.

I've read that Wesley Snipes has been trying to do a live action Black Panther film since the early 90s. I honestly think it could work really well with the right script and actor. If you connect if to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which it obviously would, people would go see it. I'd like to see both Black Panther and Ant-Man get their own movies and appear in Avengers 2. But we're lucky if we even get one.


http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/06/05/is-a-black-panther-movie-happening





Black Panther, oft-discussed as a possible Marvel movie, now appears to be on track to make his big-screen debut.

Latino Review, who are in the Marvel scoop business these days (and claim they have four different "trusted" sources in the know), says that a film about the Wakandan prince (or king, depending on the story) T'Challa is in the pipeline and is apparently intended to be released after Captain America 2 (which hits in April of 2014).

That would certainly line Black Panther up for inclusion in The Avengers 2. And don't forget, Marvel did hire a writer named Mark Bailey to pen the script back in January of 2011. LR says word has it that script is "fantastic." And we did see Wakanda on a map in Iron Man 2

Wesley Snipes was attached to a Black Panther film at Columbia and Artisan way back in the 1990s, before Marvel had, ahem, assembled the movie rights to most of their characters.

That is amazing news if true. I'd be pumped to see a Black Panther movie. I hope Ant-Man is coming too.

Supposedly DC/Warner Bros. has someone writing a Justice League script.....

While Disney and Marvel were busy shooting "The Avengers" last year, Warner Brothers quietly began getting its own all-star superhero pic back on track, tapping "Gangster Squad" scribe Will Beall to write "Justice League," based on the WB-controlled stable of DC Comics superheroes.
Warner Bros. had no comment on the top-secret hire, which, due to its timing, was more in anticipation of -- rather than a reaction to -- the box office success of "The Avengers."

Beall has yet to turn in his "Justice League" script, though he has become a favorite scribe of Warners. He's writing the studio's "Lethal Weapon" reboot and its remake of "Logan's Run," which is expected to reteam "Gangster Squad" thesp Ryan Gosling with his "Drive" director Nicolas Winding Refn. Warners will release "Gangster Squad" on Sept. 7.

Warners originally tried to mount a "Justice League" movie several years ago, with George Miller directing from a script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney. That iteration was set to star Adam Brody as the Flash, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman and then-newcomer Armie Hammer as Batman. Back in January 2008, the studio cited a lack of tax breaks as the main reason it pulled the plug on the project, which also needed a rewrite that wasn't possible because of the writers' strike.

DC Comics is a vital component of Warner Bros.' intellectual property, as "Green Lantern" scribes Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green were tapped to write "The Flash" for director Greg Berlanti, while another "Green Lantern" scribe, Michael Goldenberg, was hired to write "Wonder Woman." Additionally, Brad Peyton is working on a new draft of "Lobo," while John Kamps and David Koepp are developing "Spy vs. Spy" as a potential directing vehicle for Ron Howard. WB also developed the "Aquaman" property several years ago.

Let's hope that Hal Jordan (come on John Stewart!) is re-cast. Justice League: The Movie, now featuring Ryan Reynolds!!!! As Wally West.

Yes, keep Ryan Reynolds as far away from this as possible. He shouldn't even be allowed on set to deliver coffee and donuts.

We'll see if this gets greenlit, but it is interesting that DC is looking to push ahead with Justice League sooner than later.

Here is a little bit of an update with what DC/WB is planning. They have several movies lined up potentially, so it looks like Justice League won't be released without any followup films...

Warner Bros. zeroes in on heroes.
Studio preps 'Justice League,' eyes other DC faves for bigscreen. By Marc Graser, Dave McNary.

With the Batman trilogy winding down and Superman returning to theaters next summer, plans to put more of DC Comics' superheroes on the bigscreen are coming together nearly 3 years after Warner Bros. took back control of characters. This week, the studio revealed it tapped Gangster Squad scribe Will Beall to revive Justice League which WB unplugged in 2008 and hired Michael Goldenberg (one of the many writers of Green Lantern) to pen Wonder Woman.

Those projects now join in development films based on the Flash, Aquaman, Green Arrow, Lobo, the Suicide Squad and Shazam. DC and WB are also facing a decision on how to reboot Batman once The Dark Knight Rises completes Christopher Nolan's take on the caped crusader, featuring Christian Bale in the cowl.

Studio is figuring out whether to bring back Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern in a sequel to last year's actioner or relaunch the character in a completely new way. Goldenberg (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) was brought on board in 2010 to write the screenplay for the sequel, a year before the first film bowed.

Of course, those are nice problems to have. As Marvel Studios has proved, successful superhero pics can boost the bottomline of every division at a studio through homevideo releases, videogames, consumer products and licensed merchandise, TV and online shows and theme park attractions.

To better exploit DC's characters, Warner Bros. relaunched the comicbook company as DC Entertainment in 2009 and put Harry Potter franchise steward Diane Nelson at the helm. She reports directly to studio chief Jeff Robinov. At the time, Robinov and Nelson halted development of all films tied to DC characters, taking them back from producers like Charles Roven, Joel Silver and Dan Lin and aimed to start from scratch.

DC's more focused approach to manage its heroes already has been felt across Warner Bros.

On TV, the company launched programming block DC Nation on Cartoon Network with new Green Lantern and Young Justice animated series. CW is bringing a
live-action take on Green Arrow to primetime in the fall with Arrow, which is notably darker than the net's previous DC staple, Smallville.

Direct-to-homevid titles have sold well, with Superman vs. The Elite and Flashpoint" forthcoming.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has scored with its dark and gritty Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City games, as well as its lighter, funnier Lego: Batman titles. WBIE used this week's Electronic Entertainment Expo videogame confab to unveil fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us, featuring DC's heroes and villains and a Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition for the new Nintendo Wii U console, out this fall.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. Consumer Products shelled out considerable coin to expand its rights to the classic 1960s Batman TV series to launch new lines of merchandise featuring the show's characters, while brokering deals to unleash a slew of products around next summer's Superman actioner, Man of Steel, which the studio hopes will launch a new franchise.

And its comicbook division relaunched all of its 52 books last year, with new storylines and art, to boost sales and attract a new readership, especially through digital platforms.

With Harry Potter having ended its run, WB is clearly turning to DC to help launch new franchises.

But the studio is being especially careful with the characters now after the disappointing perf of Green Lantern, which earned nearly $220 million at the worldwide box office last year.

According to sources close to the development process, the studio learned that when making a superhero pic, it needs to tap creatives that genuinely understand the characters the way Joss Whedon was comfortable with The Avengers.
DC execs are excitedly discussing all of the projects in motion with the major exception of its films.

The main reason: Christopher Nolan. With the filmmaker having relaunched Batman (last installment, The Dark Knight, hauled in $1 billion globally, now surpassed by The Avengers) and producing Superman pic Man of Steel, directed by Zack Snyder, WB has increasingly put more control of its DC films in Nolan's hands.

That's similar to how WB entrusted producer David Heyman with all eight "Harry Potter" films.

Nolan has long preferred not to talk about his projects until their release, preserving some of that movie magic for the bigscreen.

It's why only one image of Henry Cavill as Superman has been released so far, with the first official footage of Man of Steel likely to play at Comic-Con in San Diego next month.

Warner Bros. isn't expected to make any concrete moves on the DC film front until after the third Batpic opens on July 20. Putting so much power in Nolan's hands is an interesting move, especially as the filmmaker does not have a
first-look deal at the studio. Still, WB is showing signs of veering into adventurous creative territory.

In a departure from normal comicbook-based fare, Suicide Squad, for example, concentrates on a group of incarcerated supervillains, well known and unknown, rather than the usual focus on superheroes.


So who would you guys think would be the best actors to play Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman and I guess Batman since Bale probably won't be on board for any of this?

Why would they redo Batman so soon? Yuck.

Also, I'll probably get some heat for this, but Michael Goldenberg is fucking terrible. I read the Harry Potter books growing up and he slaughtered the fifth movie's adaption of the book.

Christian Bale has already said he is done with Batman when Nolan is, and that is with the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises. I don't think the Bale Batman would fit in with the Justice League anyways. A new Batman is coming, but I don't think they need to do a new movie before JLA, we all know who Batman is and what his story is, we don't need the character fleshed out in another movie. But, it would be a moneymaker, so I expect there to be a rebooted Batman within the next few years.

Agreed and it almost makes the idea of a Justice League move unappealing.

They're not going to put Martian Man Hunter in it? FUCKIN GAY.

There's even an actor who would be perfect in that role...Lance Reddick. He plays the serious-type very well, has the build for it(6'4 and trim), and his face even looks pretty similar(well, to the animated version).

There isn't anything official on Martian Manhunter being in the movie or not, since it is just in the early stages of development. I expect to see Wonder Woman and Flash movies within the next 2-4 years before Justice League. I also don't see MMM getting his own movie, so he'd likely be introduced in JLA if if happens.

Now that Warner Bros. and DC's Justice League movie is back on track, lots of little details are emerging about the rest of their superhero slate. That includes Green Lantern, which could be facing a reboot already.

Variety has the inside track on the DC projects, with the latest word being that the studio is "figuring out whether to bring back Ryan Reynolds as the Green Lantern in a sequel to last year's actioner or relaunch the character in a completely new way." Michael Goldenberg, who co-wrote the first film, was commissioned to write Green Lantern 2 back in 2010, a year before the first film debuted. It would seem, however, that script may never see the light of day. (Don't cry for Goldenberg. He's now on the newly re-energized Wonder Woman script, as reported earlier this week.)

Ryan Reynolds should never be allowed to reprise the Green Lantern role. I'd honestly prefer the John Stewart GL for the movie anyways.

Also, if they are going to let Green Lantern writers work on Wonder Woman, I have little faith they can make that a quality movie. I'm kind of excited that DC will be putting their other chatacters into movies, but I just get the feeling they will screw it up. They've pretty much screwed up anything they've gotten their hands in Hollywood lately that Chris Nolan hasn't been involved with.
