In my previous idea i had the sequal to Justice league featuring a secet society that is essentially an evil counterpart to the avengers. i'll expand on that in detail
Lex Luthor: He abviously serves as the iron man counterpart. he uses his immeanse intelligence to control the world, an extreme version of tony's "I'm the only one who deserves the suit" atitude. He feels he is the only one capable of deciding what is right and what is wrong .
Hercules: In the wonder woman comics he is a villain. He fits the "battle hungry god's son" thing that thor had before his character developement. Hercules not only never gets that developement and in fact becomes a worse, more vindictive man as a result of what happens to him.
Blockbuster: a scientist who turns into a muscle bound monster. The difference between him and hulk is that, in this version, he keeps his intelligence and uses his new power to kill those he feels have wronged him
Prometheus: In this, he is an evil counter part to captain america, although only in the barest sense of him being a peak human through non-natural means
Deadshot: Mster marks men assasin. basic alignment flip on hawkeye
Poison Ivy: Seductive vamp with a tragic-ish past. counter part to widow
As for the plot, Luther creates counters to the league a la tower of babel. The leaguers help each other overcome their weaknesses and grow into a true team rather than allies of convenience
That's an interesting idea, but I have to say hell no to Hercules. It's bad enough that the Wonder Woman comics gives us Hercules as a strawman to the Amazons's righteous "feminism." The general audience is familiar with the old television series and the Disney movie, and it would be jarring to give us evil Hercules. But yeah I do like the idea of an evil Avengers. I would make them more like The Light from Young Justice. You have Lex scheming and uniting dangerous villains and people with the intentions of trying to improve the world.
Of course, this is provided that he doesn't just get one movie and then a JL movie and that's it.
There's no way in hell anyone will take an evil genius gorilla seriously.
As for starting out with a Justice League movie outright, if you want to spawn solo movies after that you have to meticulously plan the casting so that it goes off so well that the actors can actually carry their solo films when it comes time to do it. If you have say a weak Batman actor in Justice League then that's not going to go well for future Batman films so I do think that really good initial casting is key.
But I do think that DC should open up their films more for more potential characters, I understand that they want to develop the characters as solo ventures and that's fine but at least lay in some ground work like with Cadmus, John Henry Irons, mention Gotham....anything to make it seem more expansive. Nolan's Batman kind of suffers from this by not leaving any room for Robin or other more fantastic characters/elements, especially if his trilogy is going to be closed off rather than carried on later by other directors/actors.
By the time JL gets released, there will probably already be an Avengers 2 and the general public will be tired of superhero teamups by then.
There is zero chance the public would react well to a JL movie. Everything will be"Oh, I've seen this already with the Avengers." It will be panned critically. It will bomb (relatively speaking) at the box office.
Seriously, it was a race. DC lost.
"Everybody's Waiting," Six Feet Under finale episode
It can't really be a race if the opponent wasn't participating.
Here's the films I'd do, though the order is undecided:
And then eventually a Nightwing spinoff of batman
