gb23: (JL: Don't Touch!)

This film was friggin' awesome. And it had all the voice cast from the JL cartoon, plus Nathan Fillion as GL! It was a little weird hearing Michael Rosenbaum as Barry instead of Wally, but he made it work. Ahh, I wasn't expecting it to be this good and now I'm feeling like finishing my JL rewatch. I stopped halfway through season 2 to watch Batman of the Future. Which I also stopped halfway through season 2. XD

So apparently (cos The Avengers got all the money), a Justice League movie is in the works.

I feel very eh about it to be honest. It feels very rushed to me. Marvel took their time developing the characters and a new universe for them, so that comic book fans and non-comic book fans could enjoy them. Plus The Avengers roster was a lot more grounded that the JL would be. Thor was the most "out there" of the characters.

It'll have the new Superman (his film is out next year I think?), a rebooted Batman and then whoever's left over. Probably the current Green Lantern (which is a shame cos I love me some John Stewart) and Wonder Woman. The Flash will probably feature as well, and be Barry Allen instead of Wally West. I don't have much faith in them doing justice (no pun intended) to Wonder Woman though. She has all the potential to be so amazing! It's kind of a shame, DC actually has some amazing female characters!

I'm probably being too pessimistic, but I think the old Justice League cartoon, and to be honest the new Young Justice cartoon, has set the bar so high for how DC teams should work in non-print media that the film's going to fall short. I really hope they get some of the people who have worked on the cartoons and comics to help with the film. Cos that Gail Simone Wonder Woman animated movie that came out a while back? Amaaaaazing!

Day 22 – Favorite fight/battle sequence.

Flash vs Luthor/Braniac. The whole season had a running theme of how important Wally was, but this was not the way everyone expected!

Day 20 – Cartoon character you would most want to date, if they were real.

Ohh, there were waaaaaay too many options for this one! XD I felt I would be a bit of a creeper if I put Terry McGinnis or Sokka. I went with...

DCAU Wally West/The Flash. He was very sweet, the most good-hearted character in the entire series. I liked that he seemed like a big goofball, but was actually very responsible and smart (Flash and Substance was a good episode to show this).

He's pretty funny too, most of the best one-liners came from him! Even though he was always trying (and failing) to mack on Wondy and Hawkgirl, he had a few admirers on the show (Talia, Giganta and Fire).

I know the show's been over for about 5 years now, but still, SPOILER ALERT if you haven't watched Batman Beyond (Batman of the Future) or Justice League. It really ruins BB if you know this before watching it.

I believe my reaction when watching this the first time was this:

I don't know how they got that pass the censors! XD I'm about 35% done with my Batman Beyond rewatch. Man, I forgot how good this show was. And knowing what we know now, it makes you watch the whole thing in a different light. I really hope Young Justice gets to run for as long as they want it too, and even have spin-offs/continuations. What I miss most about the original DCAU cartoons is the long history the show got to establish. (The cartoons went on for about 13/14 years so it's not surprising) As a Nightwing fangirl since youth, I was sad we never got to find out what happened to him and that we never saw him interact with Terry.

Old man Bruce is such a sassmouth though, I love it. XD


I really hope this comes out here, especially since I now have a Bluray player. XD Important bits for those who don't want to click the link.

Castle star Nathan Fillion will reprise the role of Green Lantern, which he first played in Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. He'll be joined by Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy, the longtime voices for Superman and Batman, respectively. Rounding out the cast are several of Conroy's old costars from Cartoon Network's 2001-06 Justice League series (known as Justice League Unlimited in later seasons): Smallville's Michael Rosenbaum as the Flash, Alias alum Carl Lumbly as Martian Manhunter and veteran voice actress Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman.

The movie, due to be released in early 2012 on DVD, Blu-ray, digital download and on-demand, is based on the popular DC storyline JLA: Tower of Babel, written by Mark Waid.

Lauren Montgomery, a veteran of several animated movies in this series, including the upcoming Batman: Year One, is the director. The script was written by acclaimed animation/comic book writer Dwayne McDuffie, who passed away earlier this year.

Ah DC. Even though it's based on a comic, your cartoons are so much more enjoyable than the comics. XD

Although reading that I just realised that it's been 10 years since Justice League first started! :O

Movies! :D

And I'm not complaining about them this time. XD

I saw It's A Wonderful Afterlife on Saturday, it was good! Maybe not the best film ever, but I enjoyed it. There were some pretty funny moments, as well as gross moments.

Some spoilers! )

I also watched Green Lantern: First Flight and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths. Brilliant! :D I'm loving these DC direct to DVD movies. The JL movie was great, I did enjoy seeing animated Flash again (voiced by Josh Keaton as well! :D). Superwoman was a friggin' nut! Mob boss-like Ultraman was fun to watch as well. I was completely dense though, and didn't catch who the president was supposed to be in the alternate universe. XD The GL movie was a lot better than I was expecting, probably because I'm not really familiar with Hal Jordan. But if he's as cool in the comics as he was in this movie, I can understand why he has a big fanbase. It'd be interesting to see a GL series.

Anyways, that's all!

Seriously, Green Arrow was one of the things that made JLU so awesome, and almost made me forget that Flash wasn't in the first season. Almost, hehe. And this is one of the reasons why.

Ollie, ILUSM2U. XD

Also, wtf?! I leave the internet for a day and a half and SMAP's Tsuyoshi is arrested for running around nekkid?! And it's on MSN and BBC?! :O

EDIT: Oh, and also, the latest episode of Bones was so damn funny, I cracked up!
