    Suicide squad? My God, that could be amazing! If DC knew how to make movies, that is.

    Hope, you say? Hum...

    I liked MoS, sure it was imperfect, and DC needs to relax their sphincter so they can then slowly extract the starch-encrusted stick they've got up there, but it was a good start - Supes may not have gone round saving everyone, but then when you've a bunch of equally powerful Kryptonians planning on kryptoforming the planet I guess you have to make difficult decisions on what to do. Plus it was filled with hope and faith in humanity from him.

    It was no Iron Man, but let us be grateful they're not just copying Marvel, they could've flung out a Booster Gold movie with much the same tone and gone from there.

    Be interesting to see who'll they'll line up for a Suicide Squad movie, in terms of characters, do they really want to re-do Bane so soon?

    Harley would be good, and in the comics she shacked up with Poison Ivy for a time, so have them two.

    I'm sure that would get people in seats, and me buying shares in tissue manufacturers!

    Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, Capt Boomerang are the stalwarts of the team, along with the Wall... Rick Flagg was a fixture, but I'm not really sure I see the need.

    And make Amanda Waller a stocky black woman with attitude, not a size 0 super model. Lord that's annoying.

    And start it out with Waller recruiting Deadshot from Arkham!

    The two 2020 slots are now filled in with a Cyborg solo movie, and a Green Lantern reboot.

    I edited my blog post to reflect this.

    Flash and Green Lantern team-up?

    One guy can do whatever he imagines, and the other is real fast?

    Um.

    (Yes, I am well aware of the excellent history of Green Lantern/Green Arrow team-ups, but they worked on character dynamics, had a much weaker Lantern than recently, basically ran off their own tradition to add plausibility, and still had this problem.)

    Depends on where the go with the series. In the comics, the Flash is one of the biggies - at times described as faster than the speed of thought. I point my ring at him and imagine a boxing gl - oh, why is the Flash holding my ring? :D

    Guy's too much of a jerk and lots of folks are familiar with John due to the Justice League cartoon.

    I'd like to see Deadman spun off out one the series on TV, it's the easiest pitch ever, imagine Quantum Leap, only without the time travel & it's dead guy. Scott Bakula acting jokes aside, I'll cast my usual off the wall, choice for Boston Brand, Russell Wong.

    Apparently,the actor who's currently playing Flash on tv will NOT be playing him in the film version which makes no sense to me.

    Smallville and Superman Returns co-existed.

    Batfleck and Gotham will co-exist.

    In both of those examples, however, the TV version of the hero is a kid. This would be like having Agent Colson from S. H. I. E. L. D. played by one actor in the TV series and a different actor in the films.

    I thought he was supposed to be in his early 20s. He is a trained forensic, after all.

    Warner/DC has decided that all their properties, save those on the same network, exist in separate universes. Thus, alegedly, to not hamper storytelling potential.

    DC is rather invested, in print, in the multiverse so... :shrug:

    Yeah, and as they've admitted over the years, they tend to overdo it.

    So, there's going to be three Wonder Woman movies, it seems. One set in the Golden Age of comics (which will be her origin story), one set in the Silver Age of comics, and the third set in the present day.
