You guys all remember the [Man of Steel](movie:15593) items like the Codex and the key. I think by putting some items in a movie and letting them have small cameos, it would give more fans faith in the DC movies.
Helmet of Fate/Doctor Fate
Doctor Fate, an agent of the Lords of Order sent to protect the world. Whom ever puts on the Helmet becomes Doctor Fate and has the abilities and wisdom of Nabu. Alright, since we get that out of the way, let's talk about DC movies.
If I were in WB, I'd probably suggest making a movie that would include references to Nabu and the Helmet, of course the Amulet of Anubis and the Cloak of Destiny is a given. I might even go as far to say he is qualified for an origin movie. It would be good to even have a reference to the Tower of Fate. I know the one thing having Fate there would give certain magic users a great image, like this guy...
To show or even reference Doctor Fate, Nabu, or the Helmet can really give a lot of the magic users in DC a connection with each other. Even the Wizard Shazam can speak about Nabu when he talks to Billy Batson. I would love to see them show the helmet in a scene in [Batman vs Superman](movie:711870) or [Justice League](movie:401267).
The Nth Metal is found in Thanagar. It negates gravity, can allow the wielder to fly, protects them from elements, makes healing processes faster, increases strength, protects them from extreme temperatures, and other factors as well.
This ties in with the Dr. Fate angle. If anyone watched Justice League Unlimited, Nth Metal was shown to have anti-magical properties like when Hawkgirl used her Mace to defect the spells of Dr. Fate, put down Solomon Grundy, or damage the Annihilator. How do we incorporate it in movies... show it being used in S.T.A.R Labs. Well, one villain in particular wears this type of metal on his suit.
Yup, Deathstroke! There's a lot of good that can come out of using Nth Metal. It could also give light to other alloys like Promethium; the metal that made Victor Stone Cyborg. Promethium can be used for a metagene story since the alloy can trigger it and it also absorbs an enormous amount of energy.
Not to confuse it with the Mother Box from New Genesis, the Father Box is technology used in Apokolips. It has many functions like Danger Sense, Life Sense, Gravity Control, Telepathy, can transfer energy, has life support, imitates magics and more. It can notably use what is called "Boom Tubes" to get the user from one place to another. It would be good to see the Father Box in a movie, but only a cameo of it being displayed somewhere like LexCorp maybe. Since the Father Box can transfer intelligence to other forms of technology, it gives us more possibilities like altering certain characters origins (the Grid, Brainiac relation probably.)
So many items and materials that can be used in the DCCU. I would suggest giving all these items references and cameos. I known I didn't reference the Lasso of Truth or any other WW item, but the magical part was already said. WB/DC needs to use items like these.
