Dr. Fate would be my choice. I think on the Big Screen Dr. Fate would look AWESOME!! Magic powers present alot easier in the silver screen than super powers.

i'd seen these before, and had been looking for them. i love every design. even gl. it kinda looks like he's got some chick boots on, but i like the idea of the green in his suit looking "lanternry" every single character is as it should be imo. just make gl's boots, or whatever the **** that is (leggings?) shorter.

that's how i think bats and how supes should look. bats a more angular facial structure and supes with that lantern jawed look. that's one of the reasons i wanted armie hammer for supes.

The Flash.
After Batman and Superman, it's the only one I give a damn.

Wonder Woman needs to happen. It should be DC's top priority and for godssakes give the film to a director who understands the character. Nolan may not have been familiar with the comic Bat-lore but he certainly understood the idea of a man driven by tragedy, devoted to an ideal, and bridging different aspects of "reality" for his cause. He knew how to make a detective/crime odyssey, and he did.

Wonder Woman needs someone like that, not the likes of Nicolas Refn or David Kelley.

I think that DC should refrain from making a Justice League movie. Marvel's characters have always been sort of designed to be in the same universe together and crossover, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby placed them in New York because their genres unite together.

But for heroes like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and even the Green Lantern you have each character embodying a different genre. The trick, on film, would be to explore that character and that genre to its extent and thereby make a movie that stands on its own and memorable on its own. And DC's characters are like that. The starting point for any Batman story is detective fiction, for Superman it's science fiction, and for Wonder Woman it's mythical fantasy. Three belonging to extremely different genres of fiction altogether, with their own set of archetypes. I'm glad that Nolan didn't direct Man of Steel, and is giving all the creative freedom to Zack Snyder in this regard.

The whole tired argument of Marvel Studios outdoing DC is erroneous and old-hat, and unfortunately it seems with the recent news of Ben Affleck being courted for a JLA film, it's something that the producers at WB believe as well. It isn't. DC has its own thing going for it: instead of making a cinematic continuity they're doing something more original and exploring each of the character on their own. Granted, they need to throw more money into the other heroes, but they shouldn't just imitate what Marvel Studios has done. THAT would be pathetic. They can still dish out rich cinematic franchises if they stick to what they do best: trilogies like the Dark Knight. Matured explorations of what it means to be a superhero.

The last thing I want to add is this:

I know that The Arrow just screams fail but I'm looking forward to it. DC's bringing a second-tier character to the small-screen and exploring the most successful superhero trend in Hollywood at the moment: the rich guy who fights crime in his free time. Yes, Ollie's just as much a Bruce Wayne figure as he is Tony Stark on the surface, I guess they all come from the same archetype in this regard, and if they'd put him in his own movie people would get tired of pointing out the similarities. By putting it on the small-screen that comparison is immediately removed, on TV it makes the show-developers look like that they are embracing the Bruce Wayne / Tony Stark tradition instead of shamelessly ripping it off.

DC/WB should continue this and produced seriously-made movies based on their more popular heroes. After Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman you do have The Flash. Remake Green Lantern -- it has enough lore and characters to survive one bad adaptation. I'd go with a John Stewart-centric GL film that sort of looks back at Hal Jordon's career as a "legend" and fill the blanks in. With him you could explore so much of the other aspects of GL lore that weren't touched upon in the first movie, and immediately move away from the bad rep of the first movie. Maybe even include Guy.

And. I know this sounds cheap, but I honestly want to see a Martian Manhunter movie. A Jon'n Jon'zz film steeped into the lore of mystery-men from outer-space and LGM, Area-51, X-Files esque intrigue. Someone should be making that. As a member of the JLA I think he's always been underrated.

Throw in Aquaman, Zatanna and the rest on TV or something. If DC really wants to make an answer to Marvel's Avengers, they could go with a one-off Kingdom Come adaptation, though I'd personally prefer a period piece centered around The Justice Society. It'd be different enough from the rest of the films to stand on its own.

Blue Beetle (Ted or Jaime, I'd be hyped for either), but I know it would never happen.

Other than that, I have no idea why they haven't done the Flash yet.

CAPTAIN MARVEL would be my first choice. Flash and Aquaman are pretty close seconds.

I thought the Man of Steel teaser was Aquaman for a few seconds in the beginning. I got excited over nothing.

Deadman or the Spectre for me. One of the darker characters and don't fall into the Ghost Rider trap.

Smaller budget, really gritty and more of a slick, smart film. Think of a cross between The Crow, Ghost and The Ring.

I'll take Guy Pearce for either character.

I know this will never happen, but Mr. Terrific. I don't care which version, though I prefer Holt.

A Deadman or Spectre film with Guy Pearce in the lead, in the lines of a true-blue Horror film would be ideal.

As for Mr. Miracle - I still say they should go for the first-ever comics-based supervillain movie starring Darkseid and the New Gods, put Terrific in there as one of the heroes but keep Superman out.

I like it. He is awesome enough and can handle that with his intelligence, cunning and sheer audacity.

Plus...he's an Olympian!
