I can't stop laughing at how awful this process has been.
What if a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society had intended? What if a child aspired to something greater?
Costumes can be tweaked, they would look fine in a movie. Plus there's that whole suspension of disbelief thing.
Of course a poorly written script will undoubtedly contribute to a bad movie but much of it is determined on the look of the characters in daylight and the suspension of belief working enough for the world to be taken with some sort of seriousness. Avengers worked because it drew from the Ultimate universe created specifically to be a "real world" power group which presentation panders to the cinematic...JLU has ways to go. The watchmen costumes were decent but they were mostly shot in the dark and shadow, the JLU exists many time in daylight which presents a cos-play atmosphere no matter how well you cg it.

You're jumping to unfounded conclusions based on how things work in the comics. Movies aren't comics and they don't work by the same rules.

In response to Kalorama :
-Of course its speculation the majority of this TV/ Film thread is speculation "with a hint of fortune telling thrown in". Why even respond to these threads if your objection to my "speculations" of why the JLU would be visually problematic in a live action movie is that my words are "pure speculation"...That is pretty obvious...in fact this whole thread might be pure nonsense due to the fact that the script being discarded is based on a "rumor".
- Of course I am basing the JLU on the comics and animated series in which the JLU primarily operates in day light because you would like to think WB would stay somewhat loyal to vibe of the team and other then batman it isn't a nocturnal crime fighting group.
- Once again Avengers was based on an ultimate universe and when that universe was created the editors/artists redesigned their costumes purposely to become cinematic ally appealing, where as DC has yet to do that with its heroes so it is hard to compare the two as having the same results...JLU costumes even streamlined and mainstreamed are "too flamboyant".
The point is you obviously believe WB can come up with solutions to the visual problems I have proposed and I do not think those solutions will compromise the look of the world, thus changing it to an XMen or Avengers...though my opinions are purely "speculative"...just to be clear.

His wanting to kill the Joker was in line with the Burton/Schumacher films and wanting to keep Superman from stopping him doesn't make Batman a villain in that. Just the aggressor. Recall that he killed in the first three films in that series, often deliberately. Wanting to kill the man who killed his parents and now his bride to be, is in keeping with that modus operandi.Originally Posted by kalorama
