Now that Man of Steel is a financial success, chances for a JLA movie down the line just got a little bit stronger, after a few years of doubt and false starts. Everyone is expecting the big 5 - Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern - to show up, but who will fill out the roster? Can Aquaman work? Will they go for Cyborg to reflect the newest comics? The most important question to me is whether they will include The Martian Manhunter - a founding member who nevertheless has never achieved the high profile of his teammates. I think he is a must for a JLA film, as he is the heart and soul of the team for me. I even have the perfect actor to play him in mind. Henry Simmons was great on NYPD Blue, and I always thought that he had the physique and intellect to bring J'onn J'onzz to life.
