All this movie needs to do is be the opposite of Avengers, and it'll be my 2nd favorite film (nothing beats LOTR). I second J'onn over Cyborg. MM is infitely cooler than Cyborg. I'm kind of hoping that they don't do Darkseid too. This movie just seems doomed to fail, in my opinion. Critically and financially, it'll do well, but I don't think I could ever love a Justice League movie. I hated Avengers, and WB is going to try to copy off that success, for sure. I just can't see them going grim and gritty, instead we're going to have all these heroes disagree, fight, and then come back together, tell a few jokes, and battle the bad guy for an hour in a CGI orgy.
I like Cyborg and J'onn about equally.
but J'onn would be a harder sell in a movie considering how Disney feels about Mars right now.
and most of his powers are redundant and would make the budget more expensive where Cyborg would probably be less expensive to pull off.

I want a JL movie to do something different - and most of all, I want the Heroes to assemble themselves if they don't already know each other. I don't want any kind of DC-SHIELD or DC-Fury involved at all. And if they can avoid an army on alien monsters descending on a city from the sky, that would be great as well.
Cyborg's the redundant one. If you have him as the computer guy, then you leave Batman with nothing to do. Compare the defeats of the invaders on both Prime Earth and Earth-2. Batman creating a virus to shut down everything is going to be a much bigger "F Yeah!" moment for the audience than "The magic computer told me to say Ping." And no doubt the movie will want to glorify Batman as much as possible.
Meanwhile Shapeshifting, Phasing, Mind reading? You can easily fit those iconic powers into the story without stepping on anyone else's toes. Unless it's a tuna whose mind they need to read.
Martian Manhunter is awesome but I want Cyborg in the movie. At least show his creation so he can be in the sequel.
I wouldn't mind if they took a more political direction without being too heavy handed, like in New Frontier or Dark Knight Returns.
If they went with something resembling the New 52 Cyborg, then he'd have all this Apokoliptian tech, that he doesn't know how to use yet, so Batman could still do techy things... on top of being the team's tactician, detective, sneaky ninja guy, etc...
