My current random thoughts
Today I will finish up my trilogy of complaints against Warner/DC. Today I will give some explanation to my reasoning on my choices. I hope for the few who reads this that it is interesting to you. So now begins the exciting and climatic ending to this story!
The first thing I will touch on is my villain choices. For those in the know you may have noticed the pattern. With out much variation I picked the Legion of Doom membership for my jumping point. These are all classic and easily recognized evil doers. The reason I picked two villains for Flash was that I felt the Flash movie should have a fast pace to match the character and as such two villains wouldn’t hurt. Also even though I love the Flash rogue gallery, it is all rather weak characters. Power wise that is. I felt Captain Cold and the Trickster could play off each other well.
For Wonder Woman I felt Cheetah should be more like the recent comics and be a human-animal hybrid. Not a gal in a suit. I figure they could turn her origin into something Greek myth related and have some good ol’ Gods and Goddesses make some cameos like the Thor movie.
Aquaman has few villains and I always liked Black Manta anyways. I think Aquaman’s brother Orm should have a cameo that could lead to Ocean Master in a possible sequel.
When it came to Green Lantern I felt since most average people are some what familiar with his origin I felt we can just skip it to the turning evil of Sinestro. Really I think only Wonder Woman could use an origin story in her movie. Maybe flash too, but only as a flash back (ha ha).
For the Flash/Green Lantern team up I feel Grodd is the best choice. I always see him as more of a team villain. Much like Solomon Grundy he is better with big threats. The kind of threats that need more then one hero. This movie I feel could also bring in Martian Manhunter. As Grodd is a physic villain why not bring him in from hiding to help stop him. Then he can warn everyone about Starro and begin the events for the next film.
For the League of course you need Starro. No other villain will do for the origin of the Justice League! This film can deal with the back story of Martian Manhunter and maybe have some other heroic cameos! I see no reason why Green Arrow can’t show up to be the first auxiliary member, with Black Canary no less.
One more idea I have is to have Martian Manhunter have a cameo in every film to link them. He knows what is coming and is seeing who would be best to stop Starro. Basically I am ripping off Nick Fury from Marvel but I feel it could work. Universe building never hurt no one.
Of course this is all wishful thinking on my part. I am curious to see what everyone thinks would be the best course of action for a Justice League film. Let me know. Do you think more characters are needed? Maybe a different villain? Less lead in films? Please share your thoughts!
