Therein lies the irony: DC/WB wants to emulate the Marvel movies' success, but they fail to realize that a major part of their success is that they DON'T just keep using the same few characters. We're getting a Guardians of the Galaxy movie, so when will Warners counter with L.E.G.I.O.N. or something (as opposed to Geoff's bestest pals, some color of Lantern)? Answer: NEVER.
They just don't get it.
Precisely. And remember what I said awhile back about DC has so many venues they could use apart from the super-hero angle, Herald? They could do other genres like action, drama, horror, comedy or so on. You have stuff that has come out like the Losers, Red, Road To Perdition, A History Of Violence, Sgt. Bilko, Constantine, etc-but did DC or WB ever acknowledge their significance? Also, there are books like Warlord, Amethyst, Madame Xanadu, Fables, Rush City( Which is basically Fast & Furious in comicbook form), Green Team, Richard Dragon, Reign Of The Zodiac, Night Force, The Sandman, Xombi and many others they could use. Overall the sky is the limit with the source material DC has but as stated before WB believes that DC's relevance began and will end with Batman and Superman-which is sad. If WB/DC really got their shit together then Marvel would be in serious trouble movie-wise.
