In the latest episode of Los Fanboys, Jammer and David go all in on Justice League. The pair discuss the box office for the film, where it went wrong, and what led to the disappointing take. From there, they delve into a full-on review and discussion, where they talk about what worked for them, what didn’t, and how the film came together. Finally, they discuss the $10,000 question: where does DC go from here? Sadly, Justice League has left them in a less-than optimal situation, and we discuss what steps they can take.

    Well according to the next article Nightwing is where it goes from here.

    Too many good aspects to burn it all down…I think Snyder doesn’t work for critics & average moviegoers, but his casting is stellar.

    Start fresh with individual movies & recast Batman for the long haul. I really do like Ben’s take, but he’s killed the BO twice in a row now. WB won’t ignore that.

    Flash, WW, Cavill, Aquaman are all perfect. No need to cut them…Let talented directors do their thing & watch the magic happen (dammit). How did they not realize this firsthand after TDK trilogy?

    I think DC/WB should have started with All-Star Superman instead of the lame Death of Superman attempt in BvS. Next should have been Superman: Braniac. Going forward they should do a Kingdom Come adaptation next…DC/WB needs to start working in classic storylines.

      just reminded Kevin Smith’s Death of Superman script had Kevin Spacey as Brainiac with Coco.
      But yeah, all star is the best superman.

    BVS should have ended with the warehouse fight, then on top of the warehouse, Lex Luthor appears in Kryptonian power armour, a souped up version that he’s armed with kryptonite. He’s able to take down Superman and Batman individually (thanks to the kryptonite). Once they team up they beat him. The movie ends, with a single fist thrusting up through the ground in some tiny unknown country in the middle of Europe somewhere, covered in green cloth.

    Then, Justice League should’ve happened, with that figure making its way slowly across the country towards Metropolis. Superman goes to fight it and gets his *arse kicked*. He’s out of action for a short while, leading to Batman tracking down the other metahumans to try to stop this being on its rampage towards Metropolis. Superman heals in short order, the others have tried, but failed to halt the (comic-accurate) juggernaut. Superman comes back, the League is ‘formed’, they beat the crap out of Doomsday, now revealed, Doomsday and Superman slug it out for the rest of the movie, while the team keeps everyone safe.

    THEN the movie culminates in the classic ‘death of Superman’. You know, earning the actual death, rather than the trivial death and shitty looking Doomsday we got in BVS.

    That’s just how I would’ve done it…

    And I never would’ve explained where Doomsday came from, or what his motive was… until Flash forces Luthor back into the ship, hooks him up to the computer and we get a scene showing the whole scientist backstory of jettisoning the babies into the planet, watching them die, harvesting the DNA… then realises basically there’s no absolute way to kill the bastard.

    Jesus I have way too much time…

    great podcast, what should they do next….. Brave and the Bold, the actors work why not just make each of them pair up on each film and have their character interactions bounce off one another. We keep joking buddy cop, but it was easy to just make Tango and Cash, Last Boy Scout, Stake out….. Scared Straight, Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines as cops, It’s not as difficult as it sounds to make one
    Maybe renew Cavil’s contract to not be one more film and have him be a character who needs more interaction with other heroes so he can grow as a character. If he inspires everyone then let him show that.
