Darkseid's up to some shit. Here's what shit he's up to...

I would presume Batman and... maybe Green Arrow (?) are going to spend the entire movie going, "WHY IN THE FUCK IS THIS HAPPENING TO US??"

A full-on COSMIC ODYSSEY adaptation would've been the way to go. Goddamn is that series epic.

I gotta say I don't buy into the school of thought that WB can just go jumping straight into this because "Marvel have done all the groundwork for them".  Marvel did all the groundwork for themselves by building up that group dynamic over individual films and gave you a team that you cared about or at least knew before even walking into the cinema.  The same way that Avengers 2 will have a tonne of goodwill behind it and an already existing set-up for an intergalactic Big Bad.

 

Justice League will make money simply for having Superman and (more importantly) Batman in it together, so the investment should be fine.  But I really don't think it's going to resonate with the general populace anywhere near as much The Avengers did when - outside Bats and Supes - you've got a bunch of characters no one's heard of, a character that already had an abysmally terrible solo outing and two characters everyone knows on sight, but haven't had any kind of introduction whatsoever to film so might as well be unknown entities.

 

Make money?  Probably.  Have Avengers' universal appeal?  Not fucking likely.

At last Aquaman will make his Big Screen Debut! That's a prospect worth staving off Death for!

Also, it has to be said that "Apokolips", with that spelling, just looks like the ill-advised stage name of a porn star.

...and said porn star would no doubt use a rubber phallus named "Big Barda" on a submissive bottom named "Mister Miracle". 

 

This thread took a weird turn, didn't it?

"Apokolips" is just fucking embarrassing. If they do make it Darkseid, let's just hope they never put that name in print onscreen. Unless it's BoBo the Wonder Chimp's attempt to spell "Apocalypse."
