I'd say Batman the year before the first Justice League movie. Maybe 2016.

and Green Lantern after the year immediately after the first Justice League movie. Around 2018.

It would basically be a spin off with John Stewart.

Yes, Batman in 2016.

 

Green Lantern in the 30's, maybe.


While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a naysayer and hatchet-man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I'll gladly take another because I choose to live my life in the company of Gandhi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method... is love.

Have Batman show up in some way in the next Superman film, then you go right to the JLA film, no solo Batman film until after JLA, too close to Nolan's take on the character.

Problem with rebooting GL is that the 2011 version is still fresh in people's mines-remember that Hulk's reboot didn't do exactly as well as people thought it would because of the 2003 version.
Batman-hopefully not for a while.

Who were Henry the VIII and the Duke of Earl? Unsure-but they must of been great to have songs about them.

GL can be done after JLA as well, it`s really the only way to go with that character, more so if they use RR again.

That takes the anticipation away from Batman appearing with the Justice League.

If people enjoy the Batman reboot they'll go bananas when they find out that version of Batman will team up with Superman in a Justice League movie.

But if he just pops up in the Justice League movie there's no more build up than X-men had. Warner Bros can't emulate Avengers' success without building up anticipation with solo projects.

They should start fresh IMO.

That means no Hal Jordan and definitely no Ryan Reynolds.

You want to distance the reboot from the first GL movie.

They didn't use Brandon Routh for MOS, did they?

Why?

Casino Royale came out 4 years after Die Another Day and remains one of the most successful reboots.

Too soon after TDKR. Bond gets a pass since there is always a bond movie every 3-4 years.

How do you do a Batman reboot so close to the Nolan trilogy?  $2.4 Billion in WW B.O., many people have that set in their mind's for who this character is, I say just let it be for now.  What's the right number of years before you do it, 3, 4, 5,6? 

 

JLA makes the most sense to bring in Batman, they gave a quick nod that Bruce Wayne does exist in this MOS world, so why not have Batman be seen in the MOS sequel and then show up full-time in JLA and spin him off after that?  That makes more sense to me rather than re-telling his origin again and going forward after the 3 great films we just got about this character.

 

GL I can agree with you about as the take in 2011 was a failure in many, many, many ways, if you change who the GL character is (No Hal Jordan) you can easily get that going with a new cast.

 

No Routh was not used for the MOS film, but it also took 7 years to get back to the big screen (2006-2013) so going by what you are saying, we won't see a Batman or GL solo flim for 7 years  ;)

To put it simply..

 

The Marvel formula works.

 

If you introduced the Avenger characters in the first Avengers movie the movie would've been lucky to make half what it did.

 

The solo movies would've been redundant spin offs and would've also made much less.

 

Watching a Batman reboot after a Justice League movie he starred in has no build up for either film. It's just a waste of box office potential and cultural impact that ends up ruining the prospects of an ever-expanding cinematic DC universe.

Interesting proposition.

 

You give the reboot more time to develop and you get the essential build up leading to Justice League 2.

 

I think that solution satisfies everyone.

If they want a Justice League film by Summer 2017 I don't think they can fit in a Batman reboot because it'd be so soon.

 

Earliest date for a Batman reboot should be July 2017 (the five-year gap).
