  1. Ryan says:

    Justice League Dark or Stormwatch

  2. Chuck says:

    I keep forgetting the Watchmen is DC because it’s so good.

  3. If DC is going to make a movie about a team of superheroes, then they’ve got to do the Teen Titans. Titans go!

  4. Jessica’s nail polish color changes throughout the segment

  5. Wil says:

    Well how about the L.E.G.I.O.N. break away group in R.E.B.E.L.S? 

    • John says:

      This was my first thought. Especially the version that DC was putting out shortly before new 52. 
      Or Go the magic route instead, Shadowpact. But more than anything I just want a light hearted Shazam movie.

  6. Suicide Squad is about the only one that could do it.  And what about Dark Horse?  Will somebody please make an Alien VS. Predator movie without any humans?  PLEASE!? I know the concept of a movie without any dialogue (that isn’t some Frence silent film) is very daunting but it would be awesome!

  7. Alex says:

    Mr. Miracle and the New gods. Old School and Batshit 

  8. Metal Men? How about just Detective Chimp?

    • luckymustard says:

      I was about ready to scream “Detective Chimp” to the guy above, John, that mentioned Shadowpact.

  9. Aaron says:

    Suicide Squad movie with Quentin Tarantino at the helm???!!! Yes, please, yes!!!

  10. Rosgakori says:

    Secret Six. And no Captain Boomerang on your Suicide Squad movie? Boo 😀

  11. The Outsiders, perhaps?

  12. how could you leave out LEGION OF SUPER HEROES?????? The BEST choice!!!!
