I guess you could argue since he's lesser known, there's less pressure to adhere to the source material, unlike the bigger names, but still.
Oh Jesus. Not this argument again.
The DC characters you listed are owned by a corporation who has little or no faith in them, after a string of highly unsuccessful films like 'Watchmen', "Jonnah Hex', and 'Green Lantern'. Batroc the Leaper is owned by a corporation that just had a $1,511,000,000 grossing film co-starring Batroc's arch-nemesis.
As long as Marvel films are successful, we'll continue to see new Marvel heroes and villains hit the big screen, and as long as DC films outside of Superman and Batman continue to bomb, the rest of their "Big 7" will not grace the silver screen. It's simple economics.
