Brad Bird could be a good choice, my second choice could be David Yates.

I'd be fine with David Yates, the rumored favorite to direct.

Brad Bird would be cool, too, if he can pull off the tone Warner wants the movie.

And, for some reason, I wouldn't be surprised if Reuben Flescher from The Gangster Squad was offered it, either.

I'd be fine with David Yates as well, though I doubt that story had any merit.

All the Coulson talk on the last page..i have to agree with how unimportant he was.

I liked him. But when he died, even though i went "ah damnit!", i remember facepalming during most of what came right after. The fact that they were all so emotional was baffling to me. I turned to my friend and went....."why are they making such a big deal about this??"..

I hated how dumb they made him sound.

"I have this gun. I've seen the thing it's made out of shoot energy blasts out of it's face at cars. But I have no idea what this gun does! ... Oh, it shoots energy blasts just like the thing it's made out of. Time to be dying now."

He was funny but he had very little screen time all together and didn't form any meaningful relationships with anybody so i dont see why they were all so emotionally devestated about it. Stark was acting like he lost Rhodey lol.

It felt like they had to have some dramatic death. At least one. And didn't want to mess with any of the main guys from the team, or kill off Loki cuz he's needed in the next Thor. So they killed Coulson off, but it was too dramatic.

You guys don't freaking get it. Coulson was a fan favorite, that's why his death was impactful. He's basically the Dos Equis guy of the Marvel Universe. Coulson was a better written and more interesting character than anyone in Green Lantern, not that the characters aren't interesting, but the way they were written in that movie was uninteresting.

getting back to the directing subject, what do you think of someone like Stuart Baird? He was the editor on Superman the Movie, and Casino Royale and many other films. He has strong relationships at Warner.

He has not been very successful as a director, but this might be a good opportunity for him. The three titles under his belt have been Star Trek Nemesis, U.S. Marshalls and Executive Decision.

I agree about GL, but we're not comparing it to anything. And how impactful he might be to the audience cuz hes a fan favourite has nothing to do with it. It's about the world of the film, he wasn't that important to each member in the story.

I agree that if Carol Ferris died in Avengers, it wouldn't be as meaningful as Coulson's death....

I really don't get what's so confusing.

Try and put yourself in that situation.

You're a hero, but you're feeling kind of unsure and reluctant about what you're being asked to do.

And because of that... Because the villain managed to get the upper hand on your entire group, a good man has died.

A man who believed in what he was doing. A man who believed whole heartedly in YOU.

It doesn't matter how well you knew him. It doesn't matter whether you even liked him. It's enough to knock some sense into you. It's enough to wanna live up to that faith he had.

And the trading cards were just a brilliant way of reminding them all of that innocent faith.

I think it's sad that so many people are like 'why would they care'

I understand why they are supposed to care, but to me, they should basically care because the world is threatened....

No, I was making fun of the poster who bashed Green Lantern to prove that Coulson's death was meaningful.

Well yeah But that's all part of the 'Marvel's heroes are just like you and me' mentality.

They end up portraying them as people who make a lot of mistakes, are sometimes short sighted, or a bit selfish and reluctant, and need something tangible like Coulson's death to make them step up and see the reality of what's happening around them.

Justice League needs to avoid that like the plague.

Their heroes are NOT just like you and me. They are much better than you and me.

You already know we're on the same page

I really liked Avengers. I will probably buy the bluray when it's released. But I really hope that JLA's story will deeper and deal with the concepts of truth, justice and inspiration.

Same. I did enjoy the movie a lot . It had a heck of a let of merits. But it's just a different creature all together, and I really hope the script reflects that.

They need to get a guy who knows how to make a good comicbook movie. If you put a director who has never done one before, you more than likely will get a disappointing film.
