Default Jla

Ok, can we talk seriously here for a minute?

Step back for a minute. Think about your favorite JLA books.
Got them in mind?
Good.
Take a good look at this:



I'm sorry, this is friggin' pathetic.

Really, it's half a step above this, from 1997:


You've got second-stringers (sorry, Cyborg is NOT in the JLA. He's a Teen Titan. Sadly, he's one of the only two in this picture who actually look right).

You've got familiar characters so transformed (and ridiculous) as to be completely unrecognizable.

And you've got glaring holes, as most of the heavy hitters are AWOL.

This movie might be fun (though that would be a first for recent DC). But it sure as hell isn't the Justice League.

What ever happened to the A in JLA, anyway?
What the hell does "League Up" even mean?
Hey, teenage Asian Flash!! Which way to the roller derby?


Dictated on my iPad. My iPad can't spell for sh!t.

I think DC is realizing the giant Clusterf#[ they've created. That's why we are hearing talk about DC movies that will be stand alone stories and how Afleck is in/out as Bats in the next solo Batman movie. The "Flash" movie will be called Flashpoint, I believe. Probably to retroactively abort the current crap that is out now. The sad thing about this, is that Batman and WW have been pretty decent IMO. Cavill could be a decent Supes if some things were handled differently. Flash and Aquaman on the other hand.....

I just can't get over how bad the Flash looks. Normally I can get past these things, but Good Lord the costume and the casting is so freaking bad...

I look at Flash and I see that weird intern on Trainwreck. His suit hasn't grown on me, either. Not liking the look of Cyborg, personally...Aquaman isn't Aquaman. This looks bad...can't see it any other way.

I never thought I'd consider the WB Flash as any kind of a huge improvement, but he really is compared to this joke of a JLA Flash.
And Cyborg? Really? Even Rick and Morty thinks that's stupid.



I think Aquaman is the only one with any potential and that's only because I like Jason Mamoa in the role.
I'm going to reserve judgement on him until the Aquaman movie arrives.
This JLA mess basically looks like one big fight scene, but if they actually do a good back story on Aquaman and have some time to develop the character in his own flick it might be better than expected.

Not me. I'd totally buy him as Namor. But Aquaman? Nope.

I am hoping that with the look that Aquaman has in this movie that DC DOES NOT adapt that to the comic. I do not mind Aquaman with a beard or scruff but I am not a fan of the costume at all. It just reminds me of the 90's Peter David run where even though his stories were very good, I just hated that look and costume and was very glad that it got changed back.


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

  • Moondragon
  • Mantis
  • Wonder Man (in the Perez Designed costume)
  • Havok (need a new one in his classic costume because the existing one is too expensive on Ebay)
  • The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
  • and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum pose

Nothing can top that JLA Flash costume. It's the worst "movie" costume they've come up with yet. Even the 1997 costumes look better than that abomination.
