He's got a point.  Last I read, Batman is the most lucrative monetized fictional character of all time including Micky Mouse and Spider-Man.

No need to worry guys.  I'm sure that WB would NEVER sell the rights to any other stuff, especially now that there is TV and Movies.  Plus all the merchandising!  At the very least (and in desperate need of money), they would still keep BATS, SUPES, WONDY, FLASH, AQUAMAN, The LANTERNS, and probably MARTIAN MANHUNTER, plus all of their Families. 

Basically, it ain't gonna happen.  Not in our lifetimes, and probably never.

That said, I truly wish there was a dedicated BATMAN line covering all eras.  WB hates the word CLASSICS, so MATTEL could call it BATMAN UNLIMITED or INFINITE BATMAN.

Throw in Green Arrow, Hawkman, and the Atom along with Captain Marvel.

DC ain't selling the Star Hunters, Claw, or Space Cabbie.  After seeing the Marvel movie nightmare, I can't blame them.  Best I can tell, there won't ever be a MCU Hulk movie because of a dispute with Universal over distribution.  And this has nothing to do with Ike being a douche.

Well said, GARD.  That's the huuuuge advantage that DC has over MARVEL: WARNER BROS owns everything, rather than having it spread out over different Movie studios.  If DC wants to make a movie with the JUSTICE LEAGUE, the TEEN TITANS, the JSA, and SGT. ROCK, they can do it.

When you start to look at everything DC owns outright, it's amazing.  Camelot 3000 would make a great movie.  Authority based on the Warren Ellis run would make an great TV series (on HBO).  Sliding Albion in particular would make a great season.  Planetary would also make a great TV show.  So would a 100% CGI Kamandi series.  Like Avatar. 

Warlord should be the replacement for Game of Thrones.  You want a monster space epic like Star Wars?  Do some New Gods movies.  The possibilities are stunning.

Very well said.  There's tons of stuff to choose from.

I would literally die if anybody ever did CAMELOT 3000 or WARLORD, and did them justice!  I cannot even imagine that.  It would be like being 12, and winning a $100,000 shopping spree at a toy and comic book store.

KAMANDI would be very awesome, too.

Ya know what I think would be a great movie?  GRAVEDIGGER.  Sure, it would be a war movie, and they aren't really 'in style' now.  Plus, it would touch heavily on racism and segregation, and those aren't exactly uplifting.  But, it would be more of an action movie than a realistic take on history.  Ulysses Hazzard would be sort of like a combination of James Bond and a One Man Army. 

But I'd probably be the only person who'd want to see it.

Scroll down for Cassie.  If she doesn't make you smile, your face is broken.

I don't see a solo Gravedigger movie ever happening.  But in the context of DC's other oddball WWII series in a big team up movie, it could work.  Haunted Tank + G.I. Robot + Creature Commandoes + Dinosaur Island + Losers + G. I. Zombie.  Throw in Gravedigger as a sort of Everyman.  Mix well.   Grin

Cool idea, GARD!  Back in the day, I remember a few folks mentioning GI ROBOT in Wish Lists.  Good memories!

Also, it's great to see that WONDER GIRL.  Keep 'em coming MATTEL.

Found Batman, Batwing, and Atom at a very rural Wallys today.  Saw Another Atom and Batman at another rural Wal-Mart.  Rookie will look great.
