You never watched Justice League Unlimited? There were dozens of DC superheroes on their roster:
Except if they'd made a movie they'd concentrate on WM, Bat and Supes.
Because seriously, who want to watch movie about Zatanna, Plastic Man and Aquaman saving the world. Everyone would be like "Where's my fucking Batman?!"
Of course I did. May my pony sig/icon not fool you, it's one of my favorite cartoons.
But tell me, how would you put all these superheroes into a movie? X-Men movies tried hard, and usually all they got was lot of plot-unprecedented cameos, and everybody cared only about Wolverine anyway.
JL movie would have the same problem, but harder. "Booster Gold? Ambush Bug? Hawkgirl? Who are these guys?"
How would you create movie narrative incorporating lot and lot of characters? Both comics and cartoons are serial media, and are fit for this. Watchmen movie had only six heroes, and was very long and felt kinda bloated with all the backstories. Avengers has less focus on some characters, and most of them already had their own movies - so you can concentrate on telling a story, rather than talking about characters. JL movie would have to concentrate on known characters - Batman, Superman, Green Lantern.
