Hello everybody. I'm new here. I've written a Justice League screenplay and I would like to hear some opinions on it. The Villain-BRAINIAC I was watching a sneak peek of Justice League: Doom a couple days ago. In that Bruce Timm said With all Justice League stories you always kind of have to think of the villain first. You have to kind of think ok you got these 7 super powered characters. You need a villain who can stand up against them and run for their money.. I have been thinking of who the right villain should be. Ive heard Darkseid, Amazo, Ocean Master, Zod, Lex, Vandel Savage and many more that should be the villain. Ive watched X-Men, Avengers, & Fantastic Four for help in a way. The thing with the villains in those films is even if the villain wasnt portrayed right; they are villains that are just as epic as the group. Magneto is just as epic as a villain as the X-Men are as a group, Dr. Doom is just as epic as a villain as the Fantastic Four are as a group, and Loki is just as epic as a villain as the Avengers are as a group. You need the villain of the Justice League to be just as epic as the League. I dont think Darkseid should be used yet. Save him for a future film. I strongly dont think Lex should be really in the film. The thing with Lex is he is Supermans archenemy. Introducing Lex in the Justice League when he hasnt even been introduced in Man of Steel or if there is another Superman film before that would just seem odd. Vandel is a good villain but he wouldnt feel right as the first villain. Zod is in Man of Steel so no. Others like Amazo and Ocean Master may look great to comic fans but you need someone bigger and better. Thats why I picked Brainiac and here are many more reasons why he should be the villain. The First To Reveal Supermans Weakness Of Kryptonite To The World If you really think about it, it is highly doubtful Kryptonite will even be used in Man of Steel. The reason I say this is because of the fact Zod is the villain. Since both Superman and Zod are from Krypton. We know if Superman has Kryptonite near him, he will grow weak because he is from Krypton. Since Zod is from Krypton the same thing should happen to him if he has Kryptonite so it doesnt make sense really for it to be in the film. Brainiac traveled around the universe in search of knowledge. Since he has Kandor, he would have known about the knowledge of people from there. Brainiac would know that because of the yellow sun, Kryptonite would affect Superman and use it on him. A Villain Big Enough That Superman Cant Handle But The League Together Can I have said this before and Ill say it again, the villain of the Justice League film needs to be able to take down Superman but cant take down the League. Too many people would be wondering, Why would you need a team with Superman? Hes Superman he can take down anyone. We need to show that even Superman needs help and one can show that with Brainiac. A Villain We Can See Both Sides Of Batman People love Batman, otherwise have of DC wouldnt focus on Batman with half of the stuff they do. We need Batmans brains and brawn shown in the film. One small problem I have with The Avengers is that Tony Stark never used his intelligence to defend Loki, just his suit. You cant do that with Batman. Batman is without a doubt the smartest Justice League member. Batman can be shown using his brain and brawn, dissecting and fighting Brainiacs Probes to learn how to stop them and Brainiac. A Villain To Get Wonder Woman Off That Damn Island The biggest problem of a Justice League film is Wonder Woman. Batman, Superman, & Flash protect cities. Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern are from space. Aquaman could just come out like he did in New 52 but Wonder Woman is hard. My plan is very early in the film; Brainiac invades Themyscira and takes it. My reasoning behind this is Brainiac is smart. He discovers unknown worlds on Earth that could expand his vast knowledge. Themyscira is one of those unknown worlds that Brainiac takes and it make sense. After Brainiac takes Themyscira, this causes Wonder Woman to go out into the world for help. He is aided by an ally to go out and find someone who the Amazons know that can help. A Villain We Can See Both Sides Of The Flash If you really think about it, taking out Martian Manhunter, the Flash is the second smartest member of the Justice League behind Batman. I am planning on using the Barry Allen Flash for this film. I will have Flash help out with Batman in stopping Brainiac and also we will see Flash fight which we all know would look cool and we want to see. A Villain That Could Have Green Lantern Be The Hulk Of The Film Green Lantern needs redemptions from that pitiful film Green Lantern. Because of the film and its failure, Im not using Green Lantern as much as Im using Martian Manhunter, Batman, and Flash. Yes Green Lantern will be a major help in the film. We will more remember Green Lantern for the epic battle scene in the end which we all want to see. During the plot, we will see Green Lantern contribute but its best if we remember him for smashing and it would be cool seeing Green Lantern smash Brainiacs Probes. A Villain That Can Get Aquaman Out Of The Water I really think Aquaman can work and I have many ideas of how. Very early in the film, we hear that Brainiac has taken Atlantis. My reason for this is basically the same reason for why Brainiac took Themyscira. You wont see this scene, but you will see Aquaman landing on a certain civilization. I dont want to give much away about Aquaman but you read later on in my sneak peek. A Villain Who Has A Past With Martian Manhunter Im a big Martian Manhunter fan. I want him in this film without a doubt. I have sort of rewritten Martian Manhunters background. He has a history and a vendetta with Brainiac and he wont rest until he is defeated. You will find out what Brainiac did to Martian Manhunter and you will find out what happened when Martian Manhunter tried to face Brainiac alone. A Great Villain For The Day And Age We Live In With the whole idea of realism in the world Man of Steel is, having Brainiac would work very well. Think of the type of world we live, we are so depended on technology. We watch TV, use computers, use phones, play games, and use robots to build cars and other products, use technology a lot. Hell I'm not surprised if in 20 years we have robots. Since Brainiac is living technology it shows the world of the evils with technology. You get where I'm going with this. This will be a theme throughout my screenplay. An Original Justice League Origin Story Instead of using the White Martian from the cartoons or Darkseid from the New 52, I wanted this to be more original. A while back I was doing a screenplay called Batman: Arkham Asylum. It was basically a combination of the game and the book. I havent worked on it in months and dont plan on it. The reason I havent worked on it is because it no longer became fun. I was too busy using the game and the book for ideas and I wasnt able to explore my creativity because I was too focusing on making a perfect adaption. The Justice League Superman The Superman in my story is basically the classic Superman we all know and love: the big blue boy scout. There are many examples of this Superman being used in Man of Steel. Clark exposed his powers to save the children on the bus instead of keeping his powers a secret and letting them die. Batman My Batman is largely influenced by the Batman Arkham games and the animated series. My Batman is in a very dark place in his career. He has been Batman for 3 years. Dick left the cave and moved on to Blüdhaven as Nightwing. Barbara is in college and helps Dick out as Batgirl. Jason has been killed. Tim hasnt joined yet. Batman is as alone as he was when he first started until an unlikely ally comes to Gotham. Wonder Woman Most of Wonder Womans background is canon and the same as the comics. We will see Wonder Woman as a warrior, hard headed, and compassionate. Themyscira is gone. Wonder Woman will be a little more emotional than weve seen her because she is out to get Themyscira back and must search for the one person who the Amazons said she could trust to get Themyscira back. I wont be going to deep into Wonder Womans background. Wonder Woman will be a mystery kind of. Her past and origin will be revealed in a solo movie. I will say I do have an easter egg that shows the direction Im looking for in a Wonder Woman film. My main source for Wonder Woman will be Wonder Woman: The Animated Movie. The Flash (Barry Allen) My Barry Allen Flash knowledge is low but I have an idea for Barry and watching him and reading. The way I am going for the Flash is very much like Peter Parker. Barry Allen is very similar to Peter in many ways and the Flash will be to the Justice League like Spider-Man is to the Avengers. Barry will be the youngest member only 23 years old. Barrys mother died is canon and his job is a forensic scientist. Barry will also tell jokes. Barry is currently dating Iris West in this. When a Brainiac probe hits Central City, the Flash will meet it and learn that the Probe can go supersonic fast and when Flash finally stops it he will land in an unlikely city teaming up with an unlikelier ally. Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) I am making Green Lantern film canon. He did defeat Parallax and he is mentored by Sinestro, and the ending of him going into space. Thats really all Im taking from it but Im making the Green Lantern look different. Here is what I mean by semi-canon: look at Batman Returns and Batman Forever. Batman Forever is a direct sequel to Batman Returns but do they look the same? Do they look like they take place in the same universe? No but they are. Also look at Hulk and The Incredible Hulk. Is The Incredible Hulk a sequel to Hulk? No. Does it look like it can be a sequel? Yes it does. Thats what Im going for with Green Lantern. Im approaching Hal in a very serious tone. He was a little too jokey and comedic in the Green Lantern film. Hal will have been a Lantern for 2 years. He will tell some jokes but he will be more serious. I do have some ideas and plans with how to include his Air Force background in the final battle. Also yes, Hal and Barry are friends and have met. I will be watching all the episodes in Green Lantern: The Animated Series to get a feel and get familiar to Hal. I could read the comics but the great thing about these animated series is that they take notes and characteristics of every writer who has written Green Lantern and combine them. Thats one reason why I prefer the animated series. Aquaman Aquaman is in the same predicament as Wonder Woman. The difference between Wonder Woman and Aquaman is you will see Aquaman more brash and arrogant wanting to get Atlantis back. Wonder Woman is a more calm and you will see her warrior instincts while Aquaman just got that lets attack pissed off look. Martian Manhunter As a Martian Manhunter fan, I really wanted him to take center stage and show people why he is such a great character. First off Martian Manhunter has a background with Brainiac as I mentioned. You will see later on why. If I had to compare my Martian Manhunter to anyone it would be Spock from the Star Trek reboot. Superman: Brainiac This is perhaps my biggest influence on my screenplay. I love this book. There is really nothing more that needs to be said. Its my favorite Superman book its just so great. Johns did a great job on this. A Preview To My Screenplay If your wondering why Manhunter is in the hospital, it is explained later on. The Dark Knight isn't canon to my screenplay but Green Lantern, Arrow, and Man of Steel is. I appreciate your thought and opinions. Thank you for your time. Peace.
