Justice League talk
Just because the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie was shelved a while ago, that doesn’t mean it died completely. With THE AVENGERS on the horizon, DC is rethinking their strategy as to how to get their own superhero team film moving. Producer Dan Lin gives us a peak into their thought process.
"[They're] unveiling their DC strategy in January so you'll hear more about that and they'll speak about that in the new year," Lin said of the WB's plans. "[It] seems like they're building to Justice League instead of going with the team movie first and doing individual movies after that."
Part of the build-up to "Justice League" presumably involves "Green Lantern," though there are obviously several other important properties that could benefit from solo films, such as "Wonder Woman." On that particular front, Lin said that Warner Bros. is approaching DC's most prominent heroine with caution.
"Just as an outside observer I know they talk about it as a movie and also a TV show," said the producer. "I don't know if they've figured out which way to go or is it better to put her in a team movie first and then have her come off that."
Wonder Woman as a TV show? Again? Ehh. As hot as Linda Carter was, I don’t think the concept itself is something that could really translate effectively into a series these days unless the character underwent some MAJOR overhauls.
DC also has the additional hardship of figuring out how to integrate Batman into this movie, as if he was absent, that would be a pretty large hole in the traditional crew. But with Nolan’s Batman in his own dark little universe that in no way resembles SUPERMAN RETURNS or whatever the hell they're planning on doing with GREEN LANTERN, I don’t exactly see that being a smooth fit.
What do you think is the best way for them to handle all this?
