Which DC Hero Deserves a Movie?

With the upcoming Man of Steel sequel featuring Batman, should other DC heroes get their time on the big screen?

It’s no secret that Man of Steel’s sequel will feature Ben Affleck as Batman. And who doesn’t want a Batman vs. Superman movie? Some of my favorite moments from Justice League and Justice League: Unlimited involved their interactions. Nothing’s better than watching Batman snark at Superman. Nothing.

But this upcoming movie opens a lot of doors for the DC universe. Superheroes have been getting a lot of press lately, and they’ve been doing really well both in theaters and in video games. From games like Injustice: Gods Among Us, Batman: Arkham Origins, and LEGO Marvel Superheroes to movies such as The Dark Knight trilogy and Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, superheroes are very popular at the moment.

With Batman vs. Superman, we’re getting a movie featuring two of DC’s most well-known heroes. Companies like Turtle Beach are taking advantage of this superhero boon with their Marvel Seven headset. Why shouldn’t DC? If this movie is successful, what other heroes might we see on the big screen? The Flash? Hawk Girl? Nightwing? Wonder Woman? Or how about the Justice League movie we’ve all been waiting for?

Which DC hero do you think deserves a movie? Personally, I’m hoping for a Nightwing movie because, come on, Nightwing is awesome. Comment below with your answer, then head on over to IGN to vote in their poll. Currently, Wonder Woman seems to be in the lead.
