Thankfully and unfortunately, Fantastic Four happened and due to studio sabotage/paranoia it flopped badly. GL '11 is no longer the poster child for how not to make a CBM. So in the spirit of avoiding what happened the first time around this thread is for good ideas and how not to repeat those mistakes. For a GLC movie let's keep all the fluff and exposition to a minimum. Hal Jordan is the protagonist and we're watching things unfold from mostly his pov. The prologue starts on Oa and Hal's finishing up a briefing with the Guardians. He gets introduced to John Stewart who is supposed to be the audience surrogate. He's just finished his training and according to Kilowog he's a badass one of the best he's trained. John knows the basics and repeats this often to Hal who he's been partnered up with. You can probably sneak in a Cherkov's gun in here somewhere. This keeps the exposition dumps organic as John'll comment on or ask about the weirder stuff in the setting as story moves along. That's all I got for now. And hire a director who's a fan or at the very least is willing to understand the source material. If there isn't any passion behind the camera then there's no point to making this.
