Of course my dream cross over casting would be Caity Lotz for Black Canary as I feel strongly Arrow screwed up with the Canary Situation and she's proven IMO she's very strong with the action scenes probably go with a more famous actress though.

I don't think I could ever agree with something more than this! Lol

But seriously, she's good for the CW show, maybe not so much a movie. But man, she is light years more likeable than Katie Cassidey's Laurel. LIGHT YEARS!

Jason Momoa should either play Vandal Savage or Lobo, not Aquaman. WB is very hit or miss with their casting IMO.

A few tidbits...

Warners wants a female director for WW. Bold and welcome move.

Vanity fair has a suggestion, which should please the Breaking Bad fans.

Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor to be in Suicide Squad?

Superman vs. Batman? DC's Real Battle Is How to Create Its Superhero Universe
Warner Bros. is employing a different strategy than Marvel as it hires five writers for 'Wonder Woman,' has no clear leader and deals with new frustrations in its struggles to craft a compelling 10-movie world.

Vertigo DC Movies Like Sandman Going To New Line; Warner Bros Keeps Batman, Superman, Justice League, Other DC Titles


Warner Bros. Moves 'Sandman' to New Line as Part of DC Comics Shuffle
There are some exceptions. Shazam, which has been in development at New Line with Dwayne Johnson attached to star, remains at New Line.

Motion Captured AUG 26, 2014:
Why DC's serious 'Superman v. Batman' may give Marvel the big-screen edge
It's all going to come down to people falling in love with these icons

Okay, this is so out of date it's not funny. WB's new, new strategy is....drop everything Snyder related like a red hot poker, while still keeping some of it intact. Shazam's over at New Line, while there's no sign of any Vertigo titles hitting there soon. Aquaman hit big, and along with Wonder Woman seems to be the only sequels in store for the initial line-up.

After the Batman v Superman and Justice League fiascos, Affleck and Caville are out, Ezra Miller's Flash probably is, and Cyborg....just disappeared.

Strangely there are a bunch of Joker and Harley Quinn movies, though I don't recall anyone asking for them. BOP isn't BOP, but rather a Margot Robbie star vehicle.

Meanwhile, their TV line-up is going great guns. We have Fox's Gotham serving out its final year and promising a Batman before it's over. The Arrowverse shows are all doing fairly well, Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Legends, (which has quietly morphed into the best of the bunch, and the new kid, Black Lightning. And over on DC's new streaming service, we've got Titans, Doom Patrol, and Stargirl, plus more Harley stuff. Seriously, I could do with less Harley all around. Of those, only Titans has run a season so far, (with very mixed reviews). Syfy has Krypton, set for it's second season run and an introduction to live-action Lobo.

Which leaves....very few DC characters of any note who haven't had any live action appearances. Captain Atom, Power Girl off the top of my head, (though Ted Kord hasn't had a live action appearance YET, he's been name-dropped in the Arrowverse, and Reyes has appeared...sort of, in Smallville.

Don't forget Batwoman getting greenlit for a TV pilot and proposed series!

But to your point, the DC properties seem to be doing much better on TV than the big screen. I'm hopeful Shazam will be a big hit, because it looks like a lot of fun!
