Seriously, why does everyone think they know what's best for the DCU? Clearly only I know what's best! I'm not including the one obvious thing they need to do: make it amazing!
The other obvious thing that needs to happen is keep it in the MoS universe! And here's my list of other things DC should be doing!
1: GIVE WONDER WOMAN HER OWN MOVIE
Oh here's the right picture, sorry about that:
Wonder Woman is the most bada** of all female superheroes. When people are thinking to themselves who the most famous superheroes are, (which I'm sure is a very common thought that crosses everyone's mind), they think: "Hmmmm Superman, Batman, Spiderman, and hmmmmmm Wonder Woman..? Yes that's definitely it."
They don't call it the Trinity for no reason.
Here's one more for ya:
2: MAKE AQUAMAN A MURDERING PSYCHOPATH
He had his hand cut off and put a hook on the end of it! Take notes Jaime Lannister!
What I like most about the JL is their diversity. Almost all of them are completely against killing, (especially after MoS...) except one: Aquaman. He'll straight up murder your ass. The JL have a great time trying to hold him back. This depth in character's would add a new dynamic: one of them suggests to literally murder Lex Luthor (let's assume he's a villain in the JL movie) and they struggle to keep hold their image as a force for good. Let's compare that to what the Avengers would do: all agree not to kill Loki... boy that's fun to watch, it was so intense too, really had me on the edge of my seat.
The Avengers don't even have a black superhero (Nick Fury aint no superhero) or African American superhero? what ever is least offensive. Sorry.
Which brings me to my next point...
3: JOHN STEWART MUST BE THE GREEN LANTERN
I don't care who it is. (I'd like to see "The Rock" or Idris Elba)
The Rock has the physique and would bring in a huge fan base that might not go if he weren't in it.
But it's not about the money.
Yes it is. Especially when it's the bloodiest competition known to man: DC vs Marvel and us DC guys have to win every aspect of these films (bada**ness, critical acclaims, and especially box office).
However I see a Idris Elba when I think back to the good ol' days of the JL TV show.
This isn't a race thing (by the way, did you know the word "race" is politically incorrect? The term we should be using is ethnicity). I actually prefer John over Hal. Hal is a cocky smarta** while John is more serious. With The Flash on the squad, they've got enough cocky smartas*es to deal with.
4: MAKE THE VILLAINS TOTAL BADASSES*!
*So bada** I didn't even censor it.
This is what Marvel seriously lacked in The Avengers.
Let's compare two villains; one went down as the best, the other was in a big movie that had explosions and other things:
Just look at that makeup! That's insane. I wouldn't even attempt to say "hi" to this guy if my life depended on it. The reason the Joker is such a great villain is 1: he's bat-shit (pun intended) crazy. 2: He wins. 3: He was portrayed beyond perfect. No one saw it coming.
Now let's look at The Avengers main villain:
Come on! That's not threatening in the least bit. And I'm a fan of Tom Hiddleston!
You know what I'd like to see in a superhero movie?
Woah! A superhero movie where the hero dies? Hell yeah! Let this muthaf*cka:
Kill this dude:
This happens in the comics so fanboys will be most pleased.
Or how about this:
Darkseid kills Batman! (Which also happens in the comics).
Batman with holes from Darkseid's omega beams through his face? Now that'd be a good movie!
That's all I got.
Wait- no it's not.
5: DON'T RUSH THESE FILMS
Which they're not. MoS 2 is premiering 5/6/16. Damn that's a long time away!
