The Outsiders

One of the problems with the superhero genre, in both television and film, is that everything is starting to seem very similar. Sometimes it seems like the only difference between franchises are the costumes, powers, and level of grittiness. Once the action gets going, there doesn't seem to be that much of a difference between Batman and Captain America—they beat up the bad guys and move on to the next one. That's part of the reason why both Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool both did so well, since they provided a different style than these stories usually have. Suicide Squad might fill the void for DC at the movies, but a better option could The Outsiders.

They're similar to the Suicide Squad, except that the Outsiders are heroes, just ones that don't fit the mainstream norms set by the Justice League. It's a good chance to show off some of DC's more obscure heroes in a setting where they'll really get to shine. The team is related to Batman, so it fits with DC's apparent fear of not doing anything that doesn't have some sort of tie-in to the Caped Crusader.
