Illustration for article titled Which DC Comics character could save DCs non-Batman/Superman movies?

So it's pretty official: Green Lantern is not rolling in green. What happens next for DC Comics? The next Batman movie is nearly a sure-fire hit, and there's still Superman... at least, for now. But what about other DC characters?

What DC needs now is a solid, out-of-the-park hit with a second-tier character: an Iron Man. A big movie featuring a character who's neither Super or pteropine would give DC a feeling of depth to their universe, and reinforce the idea that they're more than just a two-trick pony. Or maybe a team-up movie. But which DC Comics character or team is A) as well known as Tony Stark, and B) capable of crossing over to the big leagues?
