A “Justice League” film has been floating around in Hollywood for a few years already, but the success of “The Avengers” seems to give emphasis for the studio to finally make the film. Greed is such a wonderful thing.
I look forward to a JL movie but I’m against the idea of rebooting. Rumors on the internet says that Warner Bros intend to go the Marvel route having the Justice League members in their own films and then build them toward a team-up movie like “The Avengers”.
Now given the success of “The Avengers”, I can understand why you will want to attempt to take a page out of their playbook. What I don’t agree (if the rumors are true) is the need to reboot every character in the JL movie. Case in point is Green Lantern. The character was in his first last year in "Green Lantern," and now you want to reboot him?
Okay, the Ryan Reynolds vehicle wasn’t all that good but you can’t reboot a film franchise after just 1 year. No one will buy it! Marvel tried to do the same with "The Incredible Hulk," a reboot of the character 5 years after the first film and that was a flop. I don’t see why "Green Lantern" would prove to be any different.
The way I see it, it would be better if they have another of the Green Lantern in the “Justice League”. There’re 4 of them, not counting Alan Scott, so there’s no reason why it has to be Hal Jordan. Forget about rebooting the Green Lantern franchise; just get on with making the “Justice League” movie.
