Weren't there rumblings that it would only be those five several months ago?

Given we haven't seen a Wonder Woman movie, I doubt we'll see a MMH movie any time soon.

He's always been one of those weird characters who is fairly famous yet can't carry his own mag. That doesn't bode well for his solo film potential.

To me MM is all about the Justice League.

He shouldn't be without it, and it shouldn't be without him.

Agreed. Some characters are just about their teams. Leave them at that.

Look for MM to be introduced/revealed in a twist type of way ahead of Aquaman and most certainly Hawkman in the 1st JL film though. The less core JL characters the better, so the story can be tighter. Superman, Batman, WW, GL and Flash should be the main ones for this 1st film at least

Having Aquaman in the first film in a main role would be too pricey on top of all the SVX/CGI work needed.

I think a good way to include Aquaman would be having the plot revolve around an Atlantean Invasion, and Aquaman plays a pseudo-antagonist turned protagonist role.

(I still think this would be the best route, especially if the Atlantean Army was accompanied by a gigantic 'star' shaped sea-monster, as a nod to Starro, the first JL villain)

But if it's going to be Darkseid, then no Aquaman is probably a safer bet. Or at least no Atlantis, especially if they're going to show Themyscira. Seeing two mythical lands might be too repetitive in one movie I think, especially with possibly Mars and Apokolips to show.

If he does make an entrance, have it be him saving the rest of the League's asses mid-movie, emerging from the water out of the blue with a gigantic army of sharks ripping apart and smothering the enemy army.

Like so


Instant cred

I think putting Aquaman in the JL movie and establishing his badassery (even if he isn't developed much at all, and is kept mysterious) would be good for the Aquaman movie (if they ever make it).

I think hawkman will only be some flashback of Darkseids past planets hes conquered. Might make good for an opening credit with MM voiceover.

So basically, have Aquaman shamelessly rip off Namor.

Im really happy about this lineup. Happy that we're not getting Aquaman and Martian Manhunter but also content that they might be hinted at towards the end of the movie.

It's the lineup i definately wanted.

I think having the ending of first JL film do something like this as a tease to Arthur/Aquaman leading up to the sequel would be a great ending.

Hinting at and teasing us toward the end or at the end of the first JL film that Arthur/Aquaman and Jonn'z/MM are coming would be the way to go as well.

How do you guys think the line-up should evolve throughout the movies?

I think with GL and Flash, where we have multiple prominent characters in the roles, I think the movies should do the best to give several of them their due.

I think Hal Jordan should die at the end/climax of the first JL movie (or in the next GL movie) to make room for another Lantern (probably Stewart, for diversities sake).

I don't know if the comics/show has ever used this, but I think it would be an interesting dynamic if there was some tension/guilt surrounding the fact that Hal Jordan (the guardian of the sector) wasn't there to save MM's race.

Perhaps have Hal swallow his pride by the end, accept a responsibility he wasn't even necessarily ignoring, and make a sacrifice at the end to save J'onn, thus redeeming himself; the ring flies away for the recruitment process. (perhaps this would create a bit of...mystery/suspense/curiosity for the audience after they leave the theater to see who the ring picks next, thus creating more hype around the first GL Stewart film.)

In the same vain, perhaps have Barry Allen make some universe/reality-saving sacrifice in the second JL movie (a nod to Crisis on Infinite Earths) and Wally West, the Kid-Flash has to step up to the plate.

Also, if the movies are going to be in the Nolanverse, I wouldn't mind if Bruce Wayne's successor Blake takes over in the second JL movie (especially if Bruce only suited-up in the first one to put the team together),

The original 7 is the way to go. For 3 films at least.

The big five are enough. This is an origin movie and WW and flash don't have solo movies yet. Five members will give WW and flash some screen time.

In the avengers, you had six members and both hawkeye and thor got less screen time than a shield member. That cant be allowed to happen in JL.

3 films with the original 7 is a horrible idea. You have to spread it out. Im not even a fan of the idea of 3 JL films. 2 is enough, but if it goes to 3...you have to leave Aquaman/Martian Manhunter for the sequels.

What if they turn out to be really good, enjoyable movies? Three isn't overbearing if they play their cards intelligently. Plus, the hero, villain, amd story arsenal rivals the Avengers. Any length the Avengers goes, JL can go probided it's done well.

But realistically, it'll be three movies regardless of whether they're good.

If we were to only get three movies, I'd want other heroes to get their shot in the league. (Stewart, West, etc)

I'm totally on board with them using the big 5. Think that's the way to go. But if they did add extra characters I'd rather- instead of Aquaman or MM - that they go with someone like Dr. Fate or the Huntress or even Metamorpho or Black Lightning or Red Tornado. Something out of left field and to differentiate themselves from Marvel. I loved the Avengers, but I'd love to see a great and different JL film

How would Aquaman or Martian Manhunter make them like Marvel more than Huntress, who is a non-powered action girl that shoots arrows?
