Batman V Superman is out in theaters, officially kicking off the DCEU!(Man of Steel doesn't really count) Now, I'm not here to review BvS (personally, I liked it) and although it didn't do so well among the critics, it was a hit to most DC fans (I still find it hard to believe some people blamed Marvel for it lol). It hauled in a ton of money, just what the DCEU needs to jumpstart its cinematic universe. Now they have movie planned out until 2020 (see below) but other heroes could DC bring to the DCEU?
1. Blue Beetle/Booster Gold
It's actually going to happen- a Blue Beetle and Booster Gold Movie! The characters, who appeared on the small screen in Smallville, are heading to the big screen together, in a "buddy cop" type movie. It will be more of a comedy movie (gasp!) and will be different than the dark, brooding movies DC has produced. I don't know when this movie is set to release, but I'm guessing 2019 or 2020.
2. Martian Manhunter
Now the next ones on my list are heroes that should join the Justice League by at least the 3rd movie. One of these heroes that should be in the Justice League is Martian Manhunter. Now, how would the Martian Manhunter be introduced? I have no idea (if you have any theories make sure to leave a comment!) but he is a classic Justice League character, earning a spot on this list. Now I know he is already in the Supergirl tv show, but hey, we are going to have 2 flashes, so why not 2 Martian Manhunters!
3. Nightwing/Robin Movie
Now when the Dark Knight Rises came out, there were many questions if John Blake, that cop who also went by the name Robin, would continue the Dark Knight series. Now this was a theory I came up with, and it could easily continue into the DCEU. Now imagine this: Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing, already had been Robin, but like in the comics, moved on and became Nightwing. The next Robin was Jason Todd, and well we still have yet to know what happened with him as we saw the costume in Batman V Superman. But, what if they brought in Damian Wayne, another Robin, and teamed up! It was just an idea, and obviously the two wouldn't get along at first, but they eventually work as a team to take down the baddie (Red Hood? I know he might be in the Batman solo movie but still).
4. Plastic Man
Now I know what some of you regular people are thinking: Plastic Man?!?! Are you serious?!?! But yeah, Plastic Man is a superhero, and he could totally work in the DCEU! I mean look at Ant-Man, a B-list superhero, the MCU took him and made a great movie for him, turning him into one of my personal favorite superheroes! And what worked so well for Ant-Man was the ability to joke around at his name: the ANT. MAN. Given the right direction, a Plastic Man movie can turn out pretty good. You just need to know the heroes limits!
5. Teen Titans
Now there was supposed to be a live action television series on TNT labeled "Titans" after the Teen Titans. Sadly, TNT passed on the show, so yeah, the live action Teen Titans dream is still a little bit farther away now. Well, we still have Teen Titans Go! (Yes, I know, most people hate it: I'm ok with it personally) but that's not the point. We need to see a live action Teen Titans: It would be great with villains such as Deathstroke and the H.I.V.E., and it could set up a whole new format: kid superhero movies (if your wondering why I'm saying that, its because I has an idea for Avengers Academy- check it out here: https://moviepilot.com/posts/3603315).
What do YOU guys think? Did I miss any? Leave it in the comments! Speak now or forever hold your peace! (I know I probably missed big characters but this is just a list I came up with)
