Justice Society of America and The Avengers

Both The Avengers and Man of Steel have had city destroying alien invasion final acts, and with Pacific Rim around the corner, I'm betting we haven't seen the last of those during this summer movie season.  I hope that going forward there will be different types of action featured because even these giant battles can get a little boring if movie makers keep going to the same well.  The inclusion of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in the Avengers sequel will provide the opportunity to present a wider array of powers on screen, and that ought to give audiences some new types of spectacle to gawk at.  It's all in the choreography of the fights, and that's something that Joss Whedon handled well the first time around, so I am confident that he will give us some great moments again.

Now that's just a very cool cover!

Here's what I would like to see: I'd like to see Justice League: Liberty and Justice by Paul Dini and Alex Ross adapted as the live action Justice League film. It's an alternative to the mass destruction now showing at the googleplex. Yeah, fans will be screaming for JLA fight scenes like in The Avengers. That's what sequels and breakout solo films are for. Yeah, Liberty and Justice is very "Andromeda Strain", but it's the classic League, including J'onn J'onzz instead of Vic Stone. All the Leaguers get to shine. It's drama. Sure I'd take a punchfest any day, but that's already been done. Warner Bros./DC needs to do something different to be unique from Disney/Marvel.

I wouldn't want to mute the powers of my favorite characters, just show that they can do just as much thinking as they can punching. Barry Allen is just as much a forensic scientist as he is the fastest man alive.

I love your site, but could you warn us about spoilers for a movie that all of us might not have been able to see yet?

Nice cover BTW

An alien attacking is a Spoiler? Zod is on every commercial!

I would love to see a Justice Society movie, but I'm afraid Hollywood would screw it up.
