It sounds just like the cartoon JL. Batman clearly will job everyone, while they all will look incompetent. And I don't buy we will get Martian Manhunter. I say it will be Cyborg.
If they are going against Darkseid, I hope they have the kind of mass destruction we see in films like Emmerich's 2012. Every past film has already put mass destruction to a new level. G.I. Joe: Retaliation even promises to show entire cities destroyed. So I think this film needs to up their game by having the heroes fight while an entire American coastline collapses around them.

Batman as the group's strategist sounds fine to me, kind of like how he is in the current book, but "easily the most complex written" kind of makes me wary. It's like there's a default writing mode that dictates that Batman can't do anything physically on par with his teammates, so he has to be the guy who has to do the thinking, and in the wrong writer's hands that means Batman does all the thinking whereas everyone stands and waits for his direction. Really, at best that makes the other characters boring from a narrative perspective, and at worst look like morons. There has to be a better medium in which Batman can be a key player on the Justice League, but without nerfing the other heroes' abilities and critical thinking skills.
I highly doubt all of that is going to happen. Well, maybe the Superman bit.

Sounds good! I guess they're going with The Flash personality from the Justice League cartoon. Hope they also have a Cyborg cameo. Maybe show Victor get injured in one of Darkseid's attacks.
Well I have no idea how valid any of this is, but it sure sounds good, that's all I can say.
