Fans of the Justice League have been waiting a long time to see the famous superhero team in action on the big screen—and we're still waiting. Warner Bros. has delayed the live-action film so many times that fans are losing hope of ever seeing it.

But fear not! The Avengers director Joss Whedon has an idea about what DC Comics and Warner Bros. are doing wrong, and how to fix it.

While Marvel's The Avengers is finally hitting the big screen in just a few weeks—with Warner Bros.' "rival" film The Dark Knight Rises following later in the summer—everyone may be asking themselves why on Earth DC Comics and Warner Bros. can't get their act together and finally make the darn movie!

So here comes Joss Whedon to the rescue, and he has some sage advice on how to proceed with a future Justice League movie:

It's enormously difficult to take very disparate characters and make them work. And DC has a harder time with it than Marvel because their characters are from a bygone era. Their characters were bigger than we were. They've amended that but Marvel really cracked the code in terms of 'Oh, they're just like us.' A dose of that sort of veracity that Marvel really started with Iron Man, I think you need to use that as a base.

Do you believe Joss Whedon has a point about the DC characters being from a bygone era and being bigger in scope than Marvel's? Some of them are, for certain—Superman, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter—but others are much more relatable, like Batman, Green Lantern, the Flash and Black Canary, just to name a few.

What do you guys think?
