DC & Warner Bros. Green Light JLA Movie But With NO Batman or Superman

According to Comic Book Movie, the Justice League Movie Is a Go. Warner Bros and DC Entertainment are already planning a Justice League movie; but with a twist.

Several weeks ago, Warner Bros announced they are planning on fill the gap left by the culmination of the Harry Potter franchise with DC superhero films. With Green Lantern due out in theaters next summer, along with the third installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy and a rebooted Superman film the following year, fans were beginning to wonder how soon it would be before these heroes came together into one ensemble movie. Now we're a few steps closer.
A Justice League of America film has been given the tentative green light by Warner Bros. Though the film is still in it's very, very early stages (no script has been officially worked on, but the basic plot is outlined), actors are quietly being pursued to test for the roles. The big surprise is the current team roster: Green Lantern, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter. That's right, folks, no Superman or Batman; at least not yet. The film will be used to introduce Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter to general audiences. Both Green Lantern and The Flash movies would have already been released in theaters, so there would be no need to delve into their origins. Either Superman or Batman, or both, could eventually make their way into the script; though at this time the studio is slowly moving forward without their inclusion. Several comics series, including the team's first outing in The Brave and the Bold, have worked quite well without Batman and Superman as a part of the initial team.
What do you think of a JLA movie?  Can it work without Batman and Superman?  The JLA comic book is pathetic right now without Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman or Green Lantern.   That makes me a little skeptical about the team-up described here, but any step closer to a live action JLA movie is a good thing.  Right?
