Justice League might be the perfect way to finally get Flash, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman films. And another Green Lantern and maybe even Martian Manhunter. And fingers would be crossed to see if we could get a Black Lightning or Vixen film out of the deal too. A JL film might be a good set up for Blue Beetle and a host of other DC characters that could be in their own movies or TV shows.
As for minor or 'cheap' character cameos in films like Man of Steel, I'm not opposed to them at all. I did like Amanda Waller showing up in Green Lantern and was hoping she would be like a Sam L. Jackson Nick Fury for the DCU that would show up in other films. Heck I even liked the mention of Metropolis in Batman Forever back in the day.
agreed. dont see a need for lead in films. like i said dc solo heroes all have a bigger history, supporting cast, stories, rogue gallery and all. So if the justice league can give renewed interest in the members im all for it. Who knows we could see ironman like success for each of them instead of just captain america like success.
So I hope that theres no lead in film.
