Today was one of those days when I just wanted to take my family out for a long drive without a specific destination and just wing it. Fill up the gas tank, lower the door windows, open the sun roof, turn the volume and just enjoy the ride; so that's what we did! We drove for a while and my wife spotted a dance studio (she's a professional dancer) and asked me if we could stop real quick, to which I replied: "Sure". Of course, I immediately spotted a book store right next to the dance studio and I told her I wanted to check it out afterwards. The books store was independently owned and it looked inviting.
There were tow male clerks who immediately acknowledge me and my family and were very courteous, something that employees from every field are missing more and more these days! I looked around for a few minutes and they asked me if I needed help, but before I could ask them, I noticed that one of the clerks had a pile of at least 50 comics in front of him! All I could say was "Yes you do!" He looked at me funny and I said "Comics, do you guys carry comic books?" And he said "Yes we do!" He showed me three aisles full of comics ranging from Batman to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to The Mighty Thor to Wildcats! It was a beautiful thing!!!
As soon as I turned that corner where the clerk told me to, I was suddenly in front of what can only be described as a comic book hidden treasure! Even more so when it's located in Virginia Beach, so to me it felt like I was a pirate, and I discovered an abandoned treasure chest full of comic book gold! I'm talking about hundreds, if not thousands of comic books, and at great prices too! It's too bad that I had just went to my local comic shop and spent a pretty penny there, because I only had so much extra cash to spare. But rest assure, I'll be stopping by this book store on a more regular basis and I'll be getting a bunch of those comics they had in their store.
So, next time you're in Virginia Beach and get the mood to buy some comic books, visit AFK Books, Music and Movies.

We are joined by Cory Gaitan and Manuel Carmona wherein we are tasked with the hypothetical job of producing and creating a Justice League movie by Christopher Nolan.
There are a lot of rumors flying around about the now-back-in-development Justice League movie from Warner Brothers, and we take a crack at what we’d like to see, and what we’d like to do with this superhero franchise that seems to be teetering on the edge of a knife, one step away from being amazing, and one step away from falling into colossal failure.

//About the Justice League
The Justice League, also called the Justice League of America or JLA, is a fictional superhero team that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. First appearing in The Brave and the Bold #28 (February/March 1960), the Justice League originally featured Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash (Barry Allen), Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Aquaman and the Martian Manhunter. The team roster has been rotated throughout the years with characters such as Green Arrow, Captain Marvel, Black Canary, the Atom, Hawkman, Elongated Man, Red Tornado, Firestorm, Zatanna, Hawkgirl, Cyborg and dozens of others. The team received its own comic book title in October 1960, when the first issue was published. It would continue to #261 in April 1987, which was the final issue. Throughout the years, various incarnations or subsections of the team have operated as Justice League America, Justice League Europe, Justice League International, Justice League Task Force, Justice League Elite and Extreme Justice.//
Ok, with all this excitement about the upcoming Justice League movie, I decided to give you all my casting version of the Justice League. This are mostly based on movies I've seen these actors in, popular demand or by how I see a resemblance of the character in them. they're probably not the actors who'll play the characters in the real movie. If you agree or disagree, leave your comments below.
Batman- Armie Hammer
Now, I'll be the first to admit I've never seen Armie Hammer on film, and if I've seen him, I don't remember. With that said, the resemblance to a young Bruce Wayne is clearly there. He has that slick rich douchebag look to him and he also has a kindness in his look that would work perfectly to portray the Dark Knight Detective. He also has the built to play Batman and most importantly, he's the fan favorite to play the part.
I would be happy seeing him portray Batman in the Justice League movie, especially since it
s the first meeting between these iconic characters. I think the people in charge of casting can't go wrong with signing him not only for the Justice League movie, but sign a multi film deal to have him portraying the character in the new Batman movies.
Superman- Henry Cavill
I don't think i have to explain why I feel Henry Cavill should be the one who plays Superman in the Justice League movie but if you think I do, here it goes. The guy is portraying the character in the upcoming Man of Steel movie and he looks EXACTLY like Superman, down to his boyscout look, his physique, I don't think there's anybody else out there who could come close to being Superman better then Cavill.
Wonder Woman- Jaimie Alexander
From the moment I saw Jaimie Alexander play Lady Sif in the Thor movie I immediately thought of three things: 1. This woman is Gorgeous! 2. This woman is a badass! and 3. This woman should play either Lady Sif in her own spin off movie or Wonder Woman. Why? Because she kicks all sorts of tail in the movie! She's a real female role model that embodies all the feminine qualities we as men want in a woman and all the qualities women want to see in female role models; just like Wonder Woman. Jaimie was recently aproached about playing the part of WW and she said that the character needed to be written more in the vein of Lady Sif, as in a female warrior who's not in the movie for the sole purpose of having sexual tension or being only eye candy. She wants to portray female characters who are beautiful, but also have relevance in the story. Good for Jaimie!!!
Green Lantern- Ryan Reynolds
I may be in the minority here but I really enjoyed Ryan Reynolds' performance as Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern movie. Even if the movie wasn't what we all expected, he did a good job, and I for one wouldn't mind seeing him portray the character once more. he already knows what they're going for, he has a movie under his belt and on this film, he won't be alone to carry the movie which will take some of the pressure off him. Another plus will be that WB and DC Comics are going all out on this film so, they're going to do an epic story and we'll see some crazy special effects as well as "real" villains, rather than a cloud of smoke; which was one of the reasons the Green Lantern film failed in my opinion. I say let Ryan Reynolds play the part again and this time around, I know we'll all be pleased with the results!
The Flash- Bradley Cooper
I think Bradley Cooper would be the perfect choice to play Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash. As we all know Barry Allen is known to be a serious character most of the time but once he puts on The Flash outfit, he's been known to be a bit on the lighter side. Imagine Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds bringing in the funny aspects of the Justice League and bouncing off the seriousness of Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman; it'd be great! Of course we've seen Bradley Cooper play very serious roles so we know he can pull of the serious side of Barry Allen and we've seen his subtle comedic side in The Hangover so this is a match made in heaven in my opinion.
And last but not least...
Aquaman- Alan Ritchson
We've seen Alan portray the role of Arthur Curry before in the Smallville TV series so we know what we're dealing with. This guy IS Arthur Curry! His looks, his body structure and posture, he was born to play Aquaman in my opinion. He has the "traditional hero look" and he also has an edge to him that exemplifies what Aquaman is all about, a hero who is not to be messed with! I think this guy deserves his chance in the spotlight and I feel that the Justice League movie is just the place for him to be in. So... make this happen DC Comics!
