  1. I agree with Frank (and Marc Bernardin from Kevin Smith’s FatMan on Batman) that the DCEU needs to do something BIG to get the public’s attention and a Crisis on Multiple Earths would be a great way to do that. However, I’m torn in that I think they need to work on their “small ball” game a bit and get some one-shot hits first. I think the Shazam! movie might be their next crack at that. (Although it galls me to no end that the character is called Shazam! now. WTF is he gonna do when someone asks him his name mid-fight? Change back to Billy Fuckin’ Batson is what he’s gonna do. Shazam is the goddamned wizard’s name!!!)

    Anyway, I think a happy medium would be a Brave & the Bold series. You could do the post-Batfleck Batman and another lesser-known DC character in each movie. However, until the whole “will he/won’t he” rose ceremony with Affleck continuing as Bats is resolved, they would need to do team-ups without Batman. If I were Keith G! Warner, what would I do given this line of thought? Well, I’m a gambler, so I’d knock everyone’s dicks off and give Ryan Reynolds a metric shitton of cash (and a big fuckin apology) and get him back as Hal Jordan (Same with Mark Strong). I’d team him up with a recast Barry Allen Flash and do a good old fashioned buddy cop movie w/super powers. If you can’t get Sinestro back, just pick 2 other villains from the GL & Flash Rogues and go the fuck at it. After this, hopefully you can get the B&B movies started w/a new Batman or even do a World’s Finest series with Superman as the anchor. Then comes your Crisis.
