Since the DC Universe is expanding very quickly, we wanted to throw our own suggestions into the ring. DC has so many characters and story lines in their comic vault that we would love to see as many as we can on the big screen.
Let’s dive in, shall we?
5. Blue & Gold
For those that do not know who these two guys are; they are Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) and Booster Gold. I mention Ted Kord’s Blue Beetle because the first guy (who no one knows or cares about) later dies and Ted Kord goes by that name as he takes up the beetle mantle.
Ted Kord is a billionaire that has done research into making gadgets and completely designed his own suit. He is similar to Batman a.k.a. Bruce Wayne in that he is a self-made superhero, but his personality is the complete opposite. He is easy going and funny which makes him a likable character..
Booster Gold is a janitor from the future that goes back in time with tech that he stole to become a well known, showboating superhero. Most people that know them are aware that they are good friends, so that leaves the possibility to do an awesome buddy-cop movie. This isn’t the first time it’s popped up though, many sites are saying that a Blue and Gold movie is in DC’s future plans. That is why it gets Number Five.
The Greatest story never told…
4. Man of Steel 3
I know, Man of Steel wasn’t that great for most people, but I think if they tried to make a strong sequel to BvS featuring Superman down the road it would succeed massively. I have to admit, I did sort of enjoy Man of Steel. It’s actually a movie that gets better the more you watch it in my opinion.
The movie did an accurate representation of the New 52 version of the hero. It was a bit bland because they had to introduce his origin and all that right away. We all know that Jor-El was the star of the movie, Russel Crowe was perfect, so it would be great if they made Superman this hardcore character that can fight instead of crying and hitting stuff.
Zack Snyder always maintained that Batman v Superman was the sequel to Man of Steel. We never really bought that until we saw Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition and only then did we see more of Clark Kent.
We suggest ‘War World‘ for the story line. It’s basically the premise of Gladiator, but with Superman. It’s a fun, battle royale, story set in space which we personally would love to see Superman in action on a different planet.
Look, if you’re not giving us a Green Lantern movie anytime soon, we want to see Superman in space…just forgo the Kryptonian space suit.
3. Green Lantern: Blackest Night
“In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. For those who worship evil’s might, beware my power, Green Lantern’s light.”
They did announce that a Green Lantern Corps movie is scheduled for a 2020 or whatever release, but that is preposterous. He is one of DC’s powerhouses. Most people know who Green Lantern is and we don’t need another origin movie.
We want this particular story because it has to do with the emotional spectrum of the legendary rings of the Corps. and it leads to an amazing story arc. You could even have the Justice League make an appearance as the Black Lanterns. Plus it would be great to have most of the Earth Green Lanterns working together throughout the movie as planned. You could even lead away from the Brightest Day event if they wanted to.
Just to have Hal, John, and maybe even Kyle working together would be amazing to see.
2. Justice League Dark
This may be a surprise to most of you, but we are rooting for a Justice League Dark movie. The best way to describe them is that they are a version of the Justice League that are all magic wielding characters.
With John Constantine as your leader, nothing can go wrong, because he is their equivalent to Batman. John is a British exorcist that uses his abilities in the dark arts to save people from the demons lurking around. Deadman, AKA Boston Brand, is an acrobat that died after some shady dealings in his life. He basically has to repent for what he did as a ghostly form so that no one can see and knows he’s there. Funny side note, Batman always senses when he is around. Deadman uses a form of possession to take over people’s subconscious to make them do the right thing. Enchantress (who we will see in Suicide Squad) is a hero some of the time and Zatanna is the daughter of the great magician Zatara, who was a founding member to the Justice League. Swamp Thing is the monster of the swamp that uses his host to get vengeance on those that try to destroy it.
It is such a different premise and we would love to see the use of more magic wielding characters in both universes.
This is why it makes our number two and it has nothing to do with the fact that John Constantine is one of Seppin’s favorite DC characters.
1. Batman: Under The Red Hood
Yes! I am a huge Jason Todd/Red Hood fan, as I keep saying, so it is only natural that I put this as number one. I freaked out after I saw Jason’s robin suit featured in Batman V Superman. The fact that they added him into the movie means that they are willing to use him as a future character. I’m still betting that our first or second Batman film by Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns will be Batman Under the Red Hood. I have a feeling the first one is going to be Hush, but this would be the most amazing Batman film ever made in my opinion!!!
Jason is the second Robin who is savagely beaten by the Joker and comes back to life, and tries to force Bruce to kill the Joker. In the end, Bruce doesn’t, and this makes Jason depressed and sad, but this one movie could help lead up to a whole Bat family in the future.
If only they got Jensen Ackles to play Jason. He is in Supernatural, owned by the CW, which is owned by Warner Bros, who own the DC movie rights.
Connections to a perfect film.
I know that Jensen Ackles being cast may never happen, but until someone else has been placed in that role, I’m rooting for him.
The Flashpoint Paradox
Thomas Wayne as the gun toting, murderous Batman.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who had a cameo as Thomas Wayne in BvS, has already expressed interest in playing that role and we are fully on board with that!
