Superman - If the new movie is a success, stick with Calville.
Flash - Everyone thinks this is dumb, but Neil Patrick Harris. Wait for it guys, its gonna be legen..... DAAAAAAAIRY!
Green Lantern - Nathan Fillion, why? Because he looks the part and even voices GL in the cartoons regularly.
Martian Manhunter - Either Larry Fishburne or Lance Henricksen, very defined voices. The character would be mostly cgi like Doc Manhattan.
Batman - We need someone that is pretty much a friendlier Bale, someone that's more like Michael Keaton. Not a social jovial Batman, but one that would be cooperative in a team.
Wonder Woman - You need someone eye level with Superman, a woman that's intimidating, but also pretty in that statuesque way. I can't think of anyone that I'd really cast for this role that's in the right age range. Maybe Gina Carano, she's not super tall, but she's definitely physically strong and looks it.

Avengers worked not because the heroes are great, but because you could buy those guys all existing in the same universe. A world that allows a man to make a suit of ultra flying armor could easily allow a super soldier to exist, which would make a giant hulking monster from radiation reasonable, and further wouldn't require much of a stretch for an other worldly dimensional being with a mystic hammer to exist.
Its elevated whimsy. Superman is super strong, super fast, flies, heat vision, etc. Everything he does is so outrageous that it makes the other heroes more plausible. Start with him and then move to the Flash, a movie about a fast guy in the same world seems reasonable as all get out. You end that movie with him being approached by an off screen figure wearing while gloves with a green glow, BAM! Wonder Woman movie takes place with your basic plot that a pilot crash lands on Themeskera, she takes him back to the good'ol USA, what happens there? Oh, I dunno, he was GL's co-pilot aaaaaaand you can have newspapers in the back ground of mysterious super heroes that fly and go really fast. Wonder Woman would basically be Thor, fish our of water with a love story, then have her fight a big bad. At this point we've sat out long enough that we can reboot Batman for Justice League.
SKIP THE INTRO TO BATMAN! I think we can all assume that 90% of America and the WORLD know who Batman is. You're allowed some Flash Backs, but just build him up, make him more whimsical, show him take in a young monkey Grayson. Show the "softer" side of Batman that while capable, knows he can't save the world alone. You've now established Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Superman. What happens next?
After credits scene, Dark Knight lurking, Superman lowers behind him on the rooftop, "Batman... " "Hmmm?" "We're assembling a team." *cue dramatic music* Justice League movies main plot will be Martian Manhunter contacting them about an impending evil, we get some cool grunge band to do the main theme, rake in millions.
