    Pretend you have an 800 million dollar budget. How would you do a JUSTICE LEAGUE live action film? What would the plot be? Which characters would be included? Heroes? Villains? Locales? Heavy on the action and special effects, or more of a drama/character movie? What kind of approach would you take? Who would star?

    Superman/Ka-El/Clark Kent: Victor Webster
    Batman/Bruce Wayne: Christain Bale
    Wonder Woman/Princess Diana: Lucy Lawless
    Aquaman/King Arthur: Kifer Sutherland
    Green Lantern/Hal Jordan: Greg Kinnear
    Flash/Barry Allen: Eric Roberts
    Steel/John Henry Irons(I'll explain later): Laurence Fishburne

    Villains
    Lex Luthor: Kevin Spacey
    Despero(CGI): Keith David(voice)

    And cameos by Lois Lane, Perry White, Jimmy Olsen, Alfred, Iris West, the Guardians, and other supporting charcters in their solo movie. Now about Steel, well I wanted Hal Jordan, but that means no African Americans, so I decided to but him in, and even give him the Aegis armor.

    The 800 million goes fast. Green Lantern and Sinestro's special effects suck up a lot of it. Superman's, Wonder Woman's, and J'onns effects suck up even more. Let's not forget the magical characters.

    I mean just cast extras as all the lesser known heroes, and save the big names for the main characters, or not so much big names as recognizable people for Kingdom Come

    like

    Superman---Lee Majors

    Batman---If he were still alive, I'd say Jack Lemmon, but now I'll say Bryan Cox

    Wonder Woman---Sophia Loren

    Flash---Paul Newman

    Green Lantern---Robert Redford who I would also use for the Spectre

    Robin---Charlie Sheen

    Hawkman---stuck with this one too...

    Gog---Tom Berenger.

    just kidding, no way those people are right for the Kingdom Come movie, except, maybe Robert Redford as Spectre and Charlie Sheen as the Kingdom Come Robin.

    For $800-million , I'd shoot a Superfriends movie on camcorder with Martin and Wendy as the main characters, played by people I find on the street.

    The remaining $799,999,910 would mysteriously disappear, as I take my gold bars and tradeable bond certificates to Switzerland.

    Superman* - George Clooney or Rob Lowe
    Batman - Guy Pearce
    Wonder Woman - Liv Tyler
    Flash - Jay Mohr
    Green Lantern - Rob Livingston (Kyle), Keith David (John)
    Firestorm - Edward Burns
    Major Disaster - Lieb Schieber
    Faith - Rachel Leigh Cook
    Plastic Man - Jim Carrey
    The Atom - Noah Wyle
    MM - Taye Diggs

    *Both of these choices would have to buff themselves up, and Clooney in particular would have to do away with his smarmy accent (which I deemed to be what killed him in Batman & Robin.)

    Wonder Woman/Diana Prince - Catherine Zeta-Jones (Traffic)
    Flash/Wally West - Heath Ledger (A Knight's Tale)
    Green Lantern/John Stewart - Lawrence Fishburne (The Matrix)
    Aquaman/Arthur Curry - Anthony Michael Hall (The Dead Zone)
    The Manhunter from Mars/John Jones - John Malkovich (uh...Being John Malkovich)

    The Joker - Jason Lee (Dogma)
    Circe - Jessica Alba (Dark Angel)
    Mirror Master - Philip Seymour Hoffman (Magnolia)

    Ocean Master - Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings)

    Other Players of Interest
    Vandal Savage - Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek The Next Generation)
    The Phantom Stranger (voice only) - Christopher Lambert (Highlander)

    With the Phantom Stranger as our narrator, we are introduced to the many heroes of the DC universe. Our plot begins when the immortal Vandal Savage attempts an assault on Washington DC, causing the heroes we were introduced to in their own vignettes to band together as the Justice League. Their greatest foes, not to be outdone, form an Injustice League. The main plot revolves around a series of skirmishes between the JLA and the Injustice League, who are secretly working with Vandal Savage; the immortal has promised Luthor a foolproof way to kill Superman. However, Savage's plan is to duplicate the experiment that brought the Martian Manhunter through space and time to Earth, and summon himself an army of super-strong, shapeshifting telepaths to conquer the world. Luthor stumbles onto Savage's true intent and breaks rank, breaking into the League's headquarters to inform them of the true threat. In the end, the JLA and the Injustice League team up to fight Savage and his fledgling Martian army, but Luthor and the Joker doublecross their allies and nearly succeed in wresting control of the Martians.

    I like the idea of Vandal Savage, but I'd rather see The Spectre narrarate.

    I dunno...I've always liked the Phantom Stranger for his tendency to show up and say "JLA. Go do that." Whenever anyone gets pissed at him for coming out of nowhere, he responds "I AM a member of the league, am I not?"

    I think it would be really cool to see a CGI Solomon Grundy and Cheetah. Halle Barry for Cheetah. And I think Angelina Jolie would be best for Wonder Woman.
