With the release of Man of Steel next week, it's hard not to think of the much-rumored and much-maligned Justice League of America movie.
If you don't know what Justice League is, it's basically The Avengers only with DC Comics characters like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. It's crazy, by the way, that we live in a world where The Avengers are more popular than Justice League. Until recently that was never the case (think of all of the iterations of Super Friends there have been, which is a watered down version of Justice League). With Man of Steel, however, the framework is certainly being set for an entire world of DC Comics movies. But if we're looking at Marvel's blueprint, something seems missing. And what's missing has everything to do with The Flash.
