It's not a proper Justice League without Martian Manhunter.

Or Oreos.

Gary Farber

I feel a need to point out that we had many years of the best DC movies ever made produced by Bruce Timm and company, and we've had several years of great Justice League, particularly Unlimited, movies/episodes. We know what works and doesn't. We've seen hundreds of hours of them, after all.

Are you familiar with the Timmverse, Lance? Because at this point it seems weird to write as if it hasn't existed for decades and until Nolan been about the only DC movies/shows to ever get DC right, never mind wonderful.

I'm with Gary re: John Jones. Or, as he was reimagined, a well-hung Billy Crudup.

Haven't seen the film yet, but Greg Cox's novelization was very clear that the JG-L character's actual first name is "Robin." So Nightwing makes perfect sense.


The problem with JLA was always that Batman & Flash were the only two characters with any personality. Starfire & Raven would add some havoc.


Anyone who think Gordon-Levitt was going to be Batman obviously doesn't know the mythology of Batman. Wayne has trained many sidekicks and partners, none of whom permanently replaced him as Batman. They all took new names.

This rumor also misses the significance of the symbol which Gordon-Levitt chalked all over Gotham. It was his sigil, not Batman's. He just didn't know yet that he was going to put on a mask.
