9 Reasons Martian Manhunter Needs His Own DC Extended Universe Film
For more than 60 years, the character of Martian Manhunter has been a mainstay of the Justice League team and the DC Comics brand. Early readers loved his dynamic image when put against the likes of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. The green skin with the bold, red “X” across his chest, and even the stoic yet incredibly powerful character behind the image was certainly enough to keep him around.
But to modern fans of DC Comics, J’onn J’onzz is not seen as a truly beloved character akin to the Trinity, the Flash, Green Lantern or most of the other members of the Justice League. This is unfair. The Martian Manhunter is a classic DC character, and the fact that there haven’t been talks about introducing him on the big screen (as far as we know) is a crime. The character deserves, arguably, more than any other League member to be part of the DC Extended Universe moving forward.
