Th Confused Not a word about Martian Manhunter... is it off the table as a possibility?

I was hoping for a cameo of MM. To me he is equal to GL and Flash, and above Cyborg in importance for the JL. I'm hoping this is still a possibility!

Yeah with the inclusion of Cyborg, it looks like MM is out.

It's going to be the New 52 lineup .

Agreed.I'm thinking (hoping) he'll be undercover in someway and will reveal himself in the JL movie. (And for the record,no I don't think he was the general in MOS)

He wont be a member that's for sure. Cyborg is confirmed so he's either not in this universe at all or he has a very minor role.

I dont think he's as important as Flash or GL, to the Justice League.

I grew up with MM on my league but I'm not surprised more and more writers are pushing him to the sideline when it comes to main stream jla books. It's been long discussed that the character is somewhat redundant and over powered. I loved the way kelly used him but when it comes to these movies, they really should try and put the 'best' option forward and the martian has always been a mixed bag in this regard(again overpowered). Unless they depower him and give us that JLU creature...

I agree to an extent.

Some times you include a character out of respect.He's like what Pym is to the Avengers.He's a founding member that deserves a spot,but if you must do without him,it'll hardly ruin the film in any way.

Agreed. Flash and GL are important pillars that are basically always in the league. While I like MM he is not a central pillar so to speak. There have been many Justice Leagues without MM. MM actually kind of reminds me of Green Arrow. DC ripping off one of their own popular characters. But now I'm just rambling.

The New 52 is the only lineup i can think of without MM

Unfortunately, there probably won't be Martian Manhunter, which is really a shame.

After watching MOS I thought that inclusion of alien characters such is Martian and Green Lanterns could be done easily if there was ever to be Justice League movie set in that universe. And I find a last surviving member of his species with telepathy and ability to shapeshift much more interesting than another generic half-man half-machine like every other movie cyborg we've been seeing since the 80's

But it seems that Goyer doesn't have fondness for the character, so there it goes... I really hope that inclusion of Terrio will finally get Goyer removed from these movies. For multiple reasons, with better writing being the first and most important one.

Yeah, I agree actually. It would be great to see that he has been closely involved with events over the years. And Harry Lennix's voice is perfect for the character - he's a pretty good actor too IMO.

Goyer said that it was stupid how J'onn J'onzz only chose to be a detective , he said he should be reading the president's mind to see if he's telling the truth, Swanwick could do just that...

they're going all nu52. I know MM has many fans, but if I have to pick, I'm supportive of Cyborg, who adds diversity to the group, not just racial diversity, but different power sets.

maybe MM will show up in future JL films. that'd be cool.

There's little chance that MM'll be included with Goyer dissing the character.

Martian Manhunter is my third favorite DC character have Batman and Superman.

I really, really hope he shows up. **** Goyer, Martian Manhunter is awesome.

I think Goyer's being pushed out now. He may not show up here, but by JL, perhaps he will.

I guess I over exaggerated a little bit, but, I still don't think he is as important as GL or flash.

That retarded diatribe about She Hulk and MMH really made Goyer's stock drop hard in my book.

It's like he's somehow racist against green skinned characters. Maybe Kermit the frog took his lunch money as a kid or something.

Yeah, it looks like they're doing the New 52 lineup for the first Justice League movie. I hope Manhunter is a member in the second film though. Great character.

In the meantime, how about having him appear in a film in between Jl1 and JL2? For example, perhaps he could be a supporting character in Man of Steel 2. He ends up working with Supetman, who later offers him a spot in the League, and bam.

If the JL franchise succeeds (and that's a big IF) then it would be a crime for Marty to be omitted in 3 or more JL movies. Surely they could find a place for such a noteworthy character.

Also, while I was only a moderate fan of the JL 'toon, I hear Carl Lumbly's voice in my head every time I read a CB with MM or see a MM figure. Even when I try to imagine Marty's voice without Lumbly, I can't do it.

Martian Manhunter is one of my favorites, but I don't see him getting recognition any time soon. He's being sidelined in the comics and with Goyer being part of building the DCCU, I just think we're gonna hafta wait a while for J'onn.

I very much expect Martian Manhunter to be in Justice League.

That said, I don't expect him to really be a core member until future films. But I do think he'll play an important, if not very lengthy, role in JLA.
