I gotta confess. When I read that it made me laugh out loud.

I think Aquaman could make a really cool movie but yeah, not sure about this idea at al.

Well their strategy of developing two Aquaman scripts simultaneously is basically what Sony did when they developed The Amazing Spider-Man alongside Spider-Man 4.

Wonder what indie romcom director they'll go with.

Maybe Edgar Wright is free. That would interest me enough to pay attention to this mess.

Edgar Wright should start working on an Atom movie.

re: Future DC Extended Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

1. Bats VS Supes - Check
2. Wonder Woman – Check
3. JL - Check
4. GL/Flash or Arrow – Maybe Check
5. Metal Men (Rumors have it in the works)
-Humor
-CGI would be awesome
-Action
6. JL Dark – Status is still not a 100% go, but close (It will not be a part of the DC World)
7. Legion of Super Heroes (My Favorite Comic in the 70s, DC has to take risks like Marvel did with Guardians and “Maybe” Inhumans)
-Future
-Saturn Girl, Cosmic Boy and Lightning Lad
-SO MANY story lines to go with (Even the Time Trapper and have a team up with the JL or a Teen age Supes)
-Space Battles
-So MANY different kinds of characters
8. WarLord (Another of my favs from the 70s, wish I never would have sold my entire collection of this one)
-Dinosaurs, Bad Wizards, Jungle, Brave man uniting against an un-stoppable foe
9. Young Justice (in about 8 years, after JL has been setup and matured)
10. Younger Batman
-Can be done with a different actor than Ben Affleck
-who then can take over the older Batman in the later JL movies
11. Earth 2 Justice Society of America (Different Earth, they can do any story line they want…taking down the big 3 “Supes, Bats and WW)
12. Kamandi: Last Boy on Earth
-Future, kind of like the Planet of the Ape, but with all animals
13. New Gods
14. Doom Patrol
15. The Outsiders (Last on my list, just thought I would throw this in. Not really a fav of mine.)

DC/WB has so much to pull from, and with the current state of the Comic Hero Geek World, I think most of these would be successful.

My problem with any of it is that WB has Goyer as their comic book nerd. Anything he is involved in gives me worry. Especially if he goes solo in his gig.

If DC wanted to take a chance and get some teen girls in the seats:

re: Future DC Extended Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

A Batgirl movie would be awesome but they would have to secure Affleck as a major supporting character for at least her origins. A Batgirl movie simply can't work unless Batman shows up for several scenes.

Metal Men would be awesome, that is actually the best suggestion I've heard in years. The entire concept would be right at home in a Hollywood movie.

I fear for the Legion on film. I know Warner Bros. would butcher them, the most comic booky of all their properties. That is one property I simply don't trust Hollywood hacks to handle with any finesse.

She's one of the lead characters in the new animated movie Batman: Assault On Arkham. DC is clearly trying to position her away from being a character dependent on the Joker. I have a feeling she will show up sooner or later in a movie.

The Shazam film with Johns writing was way back in 07. And Rock has been rumored as Black Adam since around 09.

Johns has a screenwriting background anyway, how come he hasn't been involved in any of the scripts?

He was a "consultant"on Green Lantern. Just like Bob Kane was a "consultant" on all four Batman movies.

re: Future DC Extended Universe projects discussion thread - News, rumors, etc.

Catalog this under "No shit, Sherlock", but Warner has registered some domain names.

http://www.techtimes.com/articles/14...nt-inbound.htm


Quote:

It appears Warner is slowly preparing to announce the names of the DC comic-book films planned for the future. The studio recently registered four new domains for possible future DC movies, and fans are extremely excited.


We've known for quite some time that Warner is hell-bent on making the DC Cinematic Universe a reality, and it all began with the Man of Steel. This plan is continuation with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is currently being filmed in Detroit.


Furthermore, not too long ago Warner announced that it has nine DC movies planned from the year 2016 to 2020, so that's proof enough the DC Cinematic Universe is happening, but it is going to take years for everything to come full circle.


Now, the registered domains are that of possible movies such as Wonder Woman, Shazam, Aquaman, and Justice League. The registered domains are as follows:


JusticeLeagueFilm.com
ShazamMovie.com
WonderWomanTheMovie.com
AquamanMovie.com


One thing to keep in mind, these links will redirect to Warner Bros. official website, so if you're looking to get the first sighting of Aquaman speaking to a school of fish, luck will not be your side fellow comic-book movie lover.


For those who have been following what Warner and DC has been up to for the last couple of years, these registered domains should come as no surprise. Warner has long wanted to mimic Marvel's success at the box office, and these films could be the ones to make that a possibility,
However, one should bear in mind that not because Warner went ahead and took ownership of these domain names, it doesn't mean the studio is planning to work on any of these movies in the future. Sometimes companies register domains in order to fend off those who enjoy sitting on domain names for a possible future profit.


At the end of the day, however, we feel quite confident that these movies, while not yet in production, will be a part of the nine DC films planned for the future ending in 2020. We've heard so many rumors about Shazam and Aquaman for this not to be real, and the fact that Wonder Woman is a main character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of justice, should be a sure sign she'll get her own film.


On the matter of Justice League, come on guys, the next movie is called Dawn of Justice, which should be enough proof that a Justice League film will come eventually. Still, these movies may never come to pass if Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice turns out to be a terrible film.
