On the Marvel side, there's a gritty lookin' Daredevil season 3 trailer in which Kingpin gets out of jail & hires Bullseye to destroy Daredevil's reputation:

And some older news about MCU supporting characters getting their own personal miniseries projects going forward (starting with Loki & Wanda):

Looking forward to this. I've been cautiously optimistic about capeshit since Powers came out. That show crashed and burned way harder than it should have. It had many things going for it and it came out as lukewarm schlock.

Oh shit! I didn't even realize he was in this. Between him and Karl Urban, I'm definitely in. Also... Simon Pegg will be playing Wee Hughie's father. I kinda hope they go balls to the wall with Wee Hughie's accent. Reading it in the comic took a little getting used to but I ended up loving it.

I'm curious how close to the source material Amazon is willing to get. There's tons of dark or sardonic stuff in this. Starlight especially... from her blowbang initiation to join The Seven to the marketing company trying to brand her as a rape victim superhero (and the subsequent follow-up almost rape). Really hope they keep the Tek Knight storyline. It's hilariously tragic.

Not much other than it being unhealthy. It's of key importance for the test, though. Simply loving fast food isn't enough, the pedo needs to also enjoy pro wrestling in addition to loving fast food to such an extent that they spend upwards of $30 on their own fast food meal per serving. Anything less is just a pedo that is not welcomed on here, so it's important to establish this.

So I hate using RT as a metric of quality, but if it gets more people watching a quality product then I'm all for it. Stan Lee is known for his "every issue is someone's first" mentality. Opposite company, but it's a valid explanation of how this show is playing out. So far it's been heavy on the action and light on the backstory.

2nd episode of Titans is out and wew lad am I having fun. For comic readers it's a modern TV-take on Chuck Dixon's Nightwing run. For non-comic readers it's "Fuck you, dad! I don't wanna be a child soldier anymore!" It's like the first season of a CW DC capeshit show with a production budget and talented crew. As of now there isn't much filler. Sure there's the occasional love triangle bullshit, but it's such a small part of the show. It also handles the notion of secret identities a lot looser. Shit happens when it happens. My only gripe is Raven's actress. It's not even her fault. 99.98% of child actors are trash and she's no exception.

If Titan's is setting the bar for DCU's shows, I can't wait for Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing.

Actually it seems like the shows Netflix has been canceling recently are ones that are not solely produced by Netflix. A&E did the same thing when they canceled Longmire despite getting around 3 million viewers each episode because Warner Horizon produced it, which ironically Netflix picked up for another 3 seasons.

I do think it's important for people to be able to contest his legacy if they think he did some shitty things. Even if he had to die in order for that to happen. It's not like we're showing up to his funeral with picket signs.


Apparently he was QUITE DISLIKED by his co-workers and the industry in general, not just Kirby. There are lots of comics that parody him under a negative light. They seem to really blame him for purposely taking credit for things he didn't do and being egotistical. Whether or not it's actually Lee's fault or not I don't know, but it's definitely not a case of just one bitter person spreading rumors.

The Mouse is making big moves. Daredevil is cancelled.

While I still think Disney+ or Disney Play (or whatever they decide to call it) is going to be firm about having no mature content on their service, I also think that they're going to create a Marvel equivalent. Streaming Wars are starting to get interesting.

This week's episode was good. Seems like we're getting into the end of the season stretch. I am unabashedly a fan of this show. Unlike the MCU, most easter eggs are name drops or come up in dialogue.

Stan Lee shot cameos in advance of many of these productions even shooting their first scenes knowing his age was catching up to him but wanting to still be a part of his creation. The guy was a tasteless, irreverent showman in life and would most likely love that his twitter was still promoting after his death. I wouldn't even be surprised if it turned out he specifically asked for it. As far as people churning up the pretend outrage, Lee wasn't a saint. He screwed over fellow creators for top billing and burned bridges to ensure Marvel Comics, his life's work, would above all profit. In a way Stan IS the reason Marvel is successful even in an age where people wear his trademarked merchandise and call themselves Marvel fans having never even bought a single issue of Marvel's library. It's fitting that his twitter is still posting.

As much as I dislike the conservatard troll crowd, I take a perverse pleasure in seeing any disruption to the marketing campaigns of large, wealthy corporations who think they can unquestioningly pass off mediocrity as excellence just because minority groups are desperate for representation (which is a valid complaint, but disney is no one's friend and should not be lauded as anything but a company that crunched some numbers and figured out that they needed another bland white woman for their team lineup).

It's probably a fine movie, but at best it'll still be a safe-ass, riskless money maker for disney. But they want it to be praised like it's taking risks as if it were art instead of a advertisement for Halloween costumes and action figures. It's product, not art. They can market it the way they market other popcorn movies, if they want to market it as a proxy war for social issues then be prepared for combat casualties against the opposition

nb, because my position is ludicrously petty

I get where you're coming from. My biggest issue is how movies, comics, and videogames are somehow the battlefield that the culture war has to take place on. Some people say to keep the politics out of our escapism and people on the other side of the invisible line in the sand shout them down and call them facists or racists or misogynists, or homophobes. It's the same thing that happened to Ghostbusters 2016. Rather than admit that they may have made a subpar film (not even just in comparison to the originals) in an already established and beloved franchise, they doubled down on this narrative by going on talk shows and press junkets claiming that anyone who dared say a word against the film was a basement dweller or incel.

The idea that someone can't dislike something without being its arch-nemesis is retarded. Go on any corner or twitter and you'll find plenty of examples of this in every fandom.

Rotten Tomatoes certainly didn't do itself any favors by deleting fan reviews (trolls or otherwise), it makes them look bad. Also makes them look like they've sold their morals to the highest bidder. Granted, they do shit like this for every large studio, but that hasn't been how society at large has seen them. Not so much anymore.

Like Tyrion Lannister said, "When you tear out a man's tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you're only telling the world that you fear what he might say."

Also, diversity and representation for the sake of good PR and potential new fans (sometimes at the risk of alienating older, established fans) isn't progress. It's tokenism.

One of my favorite shows in the past few years has been The Expanse. It has a crazy diverse cast of characters and actors, but it doesn't use it as a selling point or even call attention to it. It just is. As a POC myself I think it's neat but not the reason I watch the show. I'm glued to the screen when it's on because of the story.

Is this even really happening? I mean, how come there wasn't this kind of supposed outrage over Wonder Woman? I have a really hard time believing anyone outside of the tiniest minority in the darkest, lonliest parts of the internet are harbouring some kind of bizarre misogynistic anger over Captain Marvel. Just seems like this is fabricated basically from nothing as part of their marketing campaign for the movie. This wouldn't be the first feature film with a campaign like that either. Given the current political climate, it was only a matter of time before some sleazy marketing type realised you can pretend bigotry exists where it actually doesn't and people will eat that shit up for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everyone's hooked on that self righteous, masturbatory outrage after all, and where's a better place to get it than here? At least this way they're not actually getting outraged over the various horrible things happening in the world that actually deserve outrage. They can stay safe inside that little escapist bubble they're living in.

Basically this. That was part and parcel of their marketing campaign too. Deflect any and all criticism of the movie by implying misogyny on the part of the critics.

The weirdest part of that whole thing was when all the twitter outrage junkies were shitting on the AVGN guy and calling him a sexist after he made a video saying he wasn't going to watch the movie. I mean, he's quite possibly the nicest and most harmless person on youtube and never even talks about political shit in his videos. The reason he wasn't going to see the movie is because he didn't like the idea of them remaking the originals without the original cast (regardless of gender). And yet these people still allowed themselves to be riled up by the marketing bullshit and attacked him without knowing who he is or even watching the video he made. It was enough for them to see that he was the 'Angry Video Game Nerd' (angry over WOMEN'S RIGHTS probably, fucking sexist!) and that he didn't want to watch a movie with an all female main cast (presumably because he's a bitter fucking incel and he HATES WOMEN!).

Oh there was plenty of outrage over Wonder Woman. It's just that the MCU is bigger than the DCCU, and as a consequence you will get less exposure to the 4chan hate parade when it comes to the DCCU.

Because of the goddamn outrage all of the actual lukewarm opinions that the majority of people who went to see these lukewarm shits of comic book movies had little to say about ALL you'll see is a bunch of spineless cretins white-knighting this movie, a bunch of softcore fair-weather feminists whose cynicism-detectors are congenitally deficient, and a bunch of shitlords who hate the movie they haven't seen because of some shit Brie Larson said at an event they didn't watch, and were absolutely never going to watch.

Who do you think is carrying the outrage to the masses? It's not people who have nothing to gain, that's who. It's a gigantic symbiotic circlejerk of cynicism. The haters have a big outrage wank and signal-boost the movie to the white knights, the white knights have a big outrage wank over the previous outrage wank, signal boost the movie to the mainstream press who signal-boost the movie to the lukewarm softcore feminists who look disdainfully upon the white-knights and the shitlords alike while having a giant self-righteousness wank. Some lowlife youtuber looking for clickbait quotemines the softcore feminist's self-righteousness and the entire thing fucking spirals down in a giant double-helix of degeneracy.

No. It was a bad-faith smear campaign by partisan troll hack Weird Mike Cernovich, who has built a "career" of trying to getting people he disagrees with fired by accusing them of being pedophiles.

He's also a hypocritical sex creep who defends pedophiles when it suits him, e.g. Roy Moore.

Doom Patrol has been straight up amazing. It's so much fun. Grant Morrison has been having a great year or two with adaptations based on his works.

I almost wish I could have entered this show blind due to how perfectly it normalizes the weird. Brendan Fraser absolutely kills it as Robot Man. Even though we only hear his voice instead of seeing him 85% of the time, he carries so much emotion when voice acting. The same goes for Matt Bomer. Actually, the whole cast has been great.

I'd say give it a chance. It might be best to wait until the season ends. If you're not feeling it, that's fine. If it isn't your cuppa then it isn't your cuppa. It might be that it's more of a binge show than a weekly show. I've shared it with a few friends (some with zero comic knowledge) and they enjoyed it only because we watched episode after episode after episode.

The only difference so far between the comic and the show is Elasti-Girl is added to the Grant Morrison run. She's way more fleshed out than she was in the original Doom Patrol run where her character arc was being the girl. She has a full-blown character arc which we've gotten hints of so far. The most recent episode introduced Tempest as a custodian for the original Doom Patrol and how fucked they've become. Also the showrunner has included a character he's been trying to push on every show he's worked on in the past. Said character is a cockroach with delusions of grandeur. It's not so big of a deal since the character is cursory and has only appeared twice in 6 episodes. Cyborg is also involved which is kind of a given since DC has been trying to make him mainstream since the New 52. He works though. He's not as serious as his Justice League adaptation and he has a great relationship with Robotman while still having a tenuous relationship with his father. It all seems rather dark and ominous.

Diane Guerrero has been stealing the show as Crazy Jane. We've only seen a handful of personalities but producers and showrunners have stated that we will see The Underground this season.

Oh and if you want to read the comics I would read Grant Morrison's run, Rachel Pollacks run, Keith Giffens run, and Gerard Ways run, as well as Flex Mentallo, Man of Muscle Mystery, also by Morrison. If you really, really want to you can go back and read the original silver age My Greatest Adventure stories, but they are really not necessary and the show takes pretty much everything from Morrison, Giffen and Way.

I'm watching Doom Patrol but not enthralled.
It's better in every way than Umbrella Academy but I think they've tried to be too faithful to the source material and expect the viewer to be familiar with it because there's so much stuff that's poorly explained or not at all. Plotholes appear thanks to them not having enough screentime to show how it happened. For example Jane goes sort of flame-headed and Robot Man reacts like that's normal but the viewer hasn't been introduced to it and it doesn't seem like they've known each other offscreen long enough for that to make sense.

Plus updating it to be set now rather than when the comics were set doesn't entirely work -
The most obvious example of this being It shows Robot Man being in the house for 25 years then Jane walks in and he has no idea who she is although the other characters are just like "she's always coming and going like she owns the place". Did he not leave that one room at all in that time? It's not clear. If he didn't then he managed to build that entire RC set without any tools. Then he says his handwriting's bad because robot hands but he also built the whole thing like what?

If they go with the way the comics went, one of the twists is that the Chief has been fucking with their memories and manipulating them towards his own ends the entire time. The Chief in the comics is kind of a sick fuck who puts on an act of being this nice heroic guy in order to achieve his own goals. I feel like Cyborgs subplot about his own memories being fucked with by hid father is supposed to point towards the Chiefs manipulation of everyone else.

'Joker' trailer looks good, or at least Phoenix looks great, even if the dialogue is kind of... expected. The song got a chuckle out of me.
Drawing comparisons to Taxi Driver, but IIRC Travis Bickle was never really victimized, he just took all the city's shit personally - maybe they thought that someone wouldn't go full supervillain without more ass-kickings, I dunno.
I think the timing's a little poor - with First Reformed coming out just last year, I'm still a little full of "spiritual lmao pun unintended successor to Taxi Driver." Maybe by October I'll be ready for another, or maybe Phoenix will just be so goddamn good that I completely forget the first two movies exist until it's over.

It's so strange to have Jared Leto play the Joker then Jaoquin Phoenix. The contrast is intense. I always thought Jared Leto had talent until my girlfriend dragged me to a 30 seconds to mars concert. As I saw him up there strutting around like a peacock while he belted out horribly tonedeaf bullshit, I came to realize that this explains how he could fuck up so hard in Suicide Squad. He's a retard. And he went full retard. It's gotta feel terrible to go full on method acting and just bomb that hard.

Anyways, enough about my hate boner for him, Phoenix is the fucking man and I trust him. I don't even care about the batman movies n shit but I'm gonna see this just because I'll watch anything that he is in. I recently watched The Master and it made me want to cry seeing such a fucking awesome duo in him and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. I also recently watched Don't Worry He Won't Get Far On Foot, where Phoenix plays a drunk who gets into an accident and becomes a quadriplegic and has to cope with that while overcoming alcoholism. Jack Black plays the hilarious drinking buddy and Jonah Hill plays his gay sponsor. It's a kinda strange movie but that's why I watched it, and it turned out really good. Just because Jaoquin Phoenix can do fucking anything. He's a god damn acting superhero. It'll be cool to see him play a super villain.

This was a beautiful episode of Doom Patrol. Even if you're not about the message this ep conveyed it executed perfectly. That Negative Man musical number fakeout still worked.

Honestly Jane's half of the episode was the best to me. Especially Robotman getting caught up in a dance-off. The preview for next week's episode looks like it'll be fucking nuts. Can't wait for The Underground!!!!

I ain't mad at this. From what I've seen... it's not connected, but Rita and Mento would have to get married and adopt Gar if that was the case. Can't really comment on that as we're only 2/5 into DCU's announced lineup (so far). Swamp Thing comes out at the end of May so keep your eyes open. I like the idea of everything being only tangentially related. Everything is Elseworlds. Prove me wrong.

I honestly cannot recommend Shazam! enough: it's pure fun. Not the formulaic "insert snarky quip, we're so fun and cool and chill" bullshit that has plagued every Marvel or DC movie until now - it just has fun doing its own thing and is absolutely joyous as a result. Every joke lands, from the nut-punching, to the beer and multiple stripclub visits, to the secretary listening to a boardroom get torn apart by demons, because the movie has so much fun with every punchline. It has it's fair share of flaws - critically I'd say it's barely above average - but I walked out of the theater wanting to rewatch it immediately.

Seriously, I know Endgame's right around the corner, but if you're only going to see one superhero movie this year, make it Shazam!

Doom Patrol this week was pretty good, we got some great Brendan Frasier moments and a very good adaptation of the Underground. I liked all of the different actresses they got to play Jane's different personalities, and the way they all interacted was done very well. Definitely a more character focused episode but it really helped flesh Jane out and really expanded on her relationship with Cliff and the Chief.

Next week should be good, we are getting the Beard Hunter and possibly Dorothy, which should be fun and hilarious. Every week we also get closer to Flex Mentallo, who I feel like will play a big part in the finale. This show keeps getting better and is the best thing DC has done in a while, and I hope they can keep this quality up for both the next season and the Swamp Thing show.

I also recently saw Shazaam. I thought it was pretty funny and it's a very different tone than the rest of the DC superhero movies (which are all serious and gritty). There were some parts that I felt dragged on just a little bit too long, but overall I liked most of the jokes and the feeling of the movie as a whole was consistently positive and easygoing for me. I haven't seen the RLM review, but I do agree that this movie was "a breath of fresh air" compared to the rest of the DC movies.

Black Annis was dope. I'm actually really glad that every Jane personality isn't played by Diane Guerrero. Another great episode. My only gripe is that this episode was only 40 minutes long. I will say though Kay's backstory was handled masterfully. It never went full creepy but it conveyed it's message well.

Brendan Fraser killed it this episode.

DC minus Zack Snyder is a license to print money.

Doom Patrol keeps delivering the goods. Beard Hunter was introduced and pulled off masterfully in this latest episode. Along with him and a decent representation of his powers in the ep, we got a lot of backstory for Niles and the immortality question that has been plaguing non-comic readers. Also... was it just me or is that Dorothy Spinner in the Niles ragdoll at the end of the episode? Next episode looks like it'll be fun. The only thing that could make Doom Patrol even more weird is Florida!!

In Swamp Thing news: the show has cut production early as it will now end at 10 episodes instead of 13. But DCU released a teaser trailer for it's release on May 31st. I've gotta say... so glad they went with practical effects.

I think they are going to change up Dorothy's backstory to make her the love child of the Chief and the cave woman. The Wendigo thing was made from the cave womans imagination the same way Dorothy makes her imaginary friends.

There is absolutely no way they will have spent all this time setting Flex up and not have him show up, it just doesn't happen that way. I am pretty sure he is going to play a huge part in the finale. Who better to fight a reality warper like Mr Nobody than a superheroic reality warper like Flex?

I watched First Class, Days of Future Past and Apocalypse this past week before Dark Phoenix comes out. I had seen The Last Stand when it came out in theatres but it looks like DoFP retcons it, which is a good thing since that movie wasn't that good. Still need to watch the first two films since those chronologically take place after Dark Phoenix as well as the Wolverine trilogy.

I think it was fine in Days of Future Past because Mystique is an important part of the plot. She's still a lousy actress though, just make here a "pretty" side character with a handful of lines.

If it was just that it'd be excusable. But there's been this semi-incestuous undertone going on between Xavier and Mystique(sometimes Magneto and/or Beast love quadrangle thing) since she started staring in movies.

Speaking of DoFP why did Kitty suddenly manifest the power to send people(or their consciousness) through time? It's never explained in the movie... she just puts her hands by Wolvie's head and *poof* he's in the 70s because phasing = time travel! Dafuq???

I guess? I never really saw it that way, probably because they're not actually blood relatives. And having the hots for James McAvoy is unavoidable.

And regarding the time travel IIRC it was a different character who actually sent back Kitty in the original comic story. So it's sort of a homage/lazy writing.
And it doesn't "just" happen, the introduction makes it pretty clear this is their modus operandi for some time.

Its pretty depraved R Rated version of SuperHeros like Watchmen or Bratpack. Its a group of people that keep super heros in line by blackmailing them. They are shitty heros like Bratpack, they want power fame ... and all sorts of dirrrty thangs. Things obviously escepatte.

I honestly didnt love the comic like everyone else cause it was so dialouge heavy and the changing or narrorators only made it worse. This may sound like a ADD thing to say but comics are a visual medium. I think it will work better as a show.

Just dropped yesterday morning. One episode per week though. I used to think it was a bummer, but I've come around on the release schedule because it seems to stimulate more discussion and speculation.

No, the show is rather well lit, this was just a scene in a dark house. There are a few scenes in the swamp at night but it's lit well so you can easily make things out. The rest of the show takes place indoors or during the day.

its portrayal of batman/bruce wayne and his effect on those he mentors was pretty cool thing you rarely see in live action or animation. the real brutality of what the bat family does has always been understated outside of the comics.

the rest of titans i ended up fast skipping to parts that looked worth watching and ended up just not caring for the show or any of the characters save for hawk&dove.

Tax credits and breaks for television productions can be huge dealbreaker.

I saw Dark Phoenix yesterday and what a shitty disappointment it was. The fact that Simon Kinberg wrote and directed it after co-writing The Last Stand showed that he couldn't get it right with adapting the Dark Phoenix storyline again. Literally the only cool things I liked about it were seeing Quicksilver get the astronauts out of the shuttle and the train sequence. It's gonna be a long time till we see another X-Men film on screen whenever they're finally incorporated into the MCU. Out of the prequel series, Days of Future Past was by far the best one of the four. Gonna try to watch the first two films (already saw The Last Stand that got retconned by DOFP) since they chronologically take place after Dark Phoenix though how does Mystique come back to life?

Also there were a lot of issues with the production and marketing behind it - https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/we-were-wrong-behind-dark-phoenix-foxs-dismal-x-men-franchise-finale-plans-1216859

Whenever Swamp Thaaaang uses his powers it's fucking brutal. The jump scares are also increasing but they work well. These episodes also start introducing The Rot. In episode 3 it revives a dead person and animates the body through the use of swarms of bugs. It looks gruesome.

Rumor is that the final episode was changed a bit to make it feel more like a finale of a limited series. It sucks that we won't get more but we'll at least get a full season.

The 3 trimmed episodes contained stuff that would lead into the second season, specifically The Parliament of Trees.

>Jessica Jones s3

About 2/3 of the way through the season and not sure how to feel about it. It's better than season 2, that's a given, but the big bad feels weak. Foolkiller would've been an interesting choice as an antagonist if they didn't strip him of everything that makes him a supervillain and reduce him to being Dexter with multiple PhDs. The addition of Mind-Wave as an ally is a neat idea, even if they changed his power to Bruce Willis' from Unbreakable (that evil empathy sense one). At least they didn't make him wear that stupid helmet to read people's minds. He's a good charismatic foil for Jessica to banter with. Hogarth becoming the subtle legal villain doesn't feel earned. Basically feels like she lost her shit because Jessica wouldn't honor her request to kill her cause of "muh ALS"

Trish is somehow even more annoying than last season. Not only is she still making bad decisions but now she's making bad decisions... with powers! The writers did give her character better things to make terrible decisions and react to though, especially in episode 8. That being said, the episode felt like the most Dexter-ish plotline/reveal.

Hope it ends well as it's the last gasp of the Marvel Netflix era.

X-Men is good, but is a product of its time so it probably doesn't hold up well these days for anyone that didn't see it back when it first came out. X2 is great, and holds up better, but still has that early 2000's nu-metal kind of feel to it. The only problem with the original movies is that Halle Berry was basically the biggest star they had so much like how Mystique was stupidly pushed as the center of everything in the prequel movies once she got famous so did Storm in the original movies. And it wasn't even like they adapted some cool Storm beats from the comics to justify Halle Berry getting more screen time, they basically just went "Fuck Cyclops, you can have all his parts, Ms. Berry".

Fuck The Last Stand, Brett Ratner, and Simon Kinsberg forever and ever, though. Fucking hack bastards.

I don't know about Adventure Time, but OG Teen Titans wasn't aimed specifically at adults. It was one of, what I consider, to be one of the last DC/Cartoon Network shows that respected the young demographic enough to grasp the material being presented at them. I was in elementary school during the time it aired.

We're on a board that has active discussions about superhero movies, cartoons, and other shit that can be considered "for little kids." I always find it amusing when you guys try to draw the line between what's for adults and what's for children, when it's all made from the same cloth.

Whoever makes TTG is only trying to make a kids show.

I'm not disagreeing with you there. I was going to include that in my previous post, but chose not to. When you wrote, "clearly not meant for adults fans like the OG Teen Titans" it led me to believe you feel that show was only meant for adults.

For some bizarre reason the masters for 11 episodes got damaged so not every episode was able to be remastered from the original 35mm film. I bought the TAS set last year but I'm on the fence on this one because of those 11 gimped episodes. Batman Beyond is only 20 years old so it's pretty incredible that the masters got damaged for any episodes. I'm wondering if someone has some original reels in storage somewhere or in an attic that might be discovered like how old Doctor Who episodes have been discovered.

I recently finished RLM's Best of the Worst and stumbled into their Half in the Bag episodes.
They reviewed Avengers: Infinity War and said it was good so I decided to watch it.

I haven't seen a single super hero movie since the first Iron Man like 10? years ago. I'm a bit into comics so I know Dr. Strange.
Haven't seen the Guardians of the Galaxy movies either, and Anfinity is really entertaining.
I'm 1hr in right now and it's definitely worth the watch. Cool beans.
I mean it's not kino, but it's entertaining and funny. Josh Brolin as Thanos was a superb choice.

Jane Foster was revealed in the comics to be FemThor so at least it's faithful to the comics. Kind of weird that Portman came back after she spurned Marvel Studios before with her "I'm a dignified actress" bullshit. Oh well, money talks and bullshit walks. Also, I guess her wielding Mjolnir means Thor's keeping Stormbreaker, I guess, and perhaps Hemworth's making his exit from the series and is going to slide into the Guardians of the Galaxy series after all.

If you think that compares to anything in Preacher or The Boys or Crossed you're mistaken. Ennis' characters are defined by their vices and display them often for the reader. You take away TC's habit of fucking animals to death and make him a sex slave for Jesse's grandmother the way they did for tv and he's less repugnant and even likeable. I'm wondering how much Odin Quincannon's habits will be shown. How would Jesus DeSade be changed for tv considering he's a hedonist, child pornographer and zoophiliac? In The Boys many of the young heroes have been molested or outright raped by the older heroes, they jerk each other off watching movies or use massive amounts of drugs and fuck hookers. Garth Ennis sold The Boys saying he would "out-Preacher" Preacher. Then there's Crossed which is just pointless violence.
What does Transmet have? A human/alien hybrid cult leader (Fred Christ) that seduces his followers? Two corrupt politicians? The core of the story isn't horror or cheap shock through graphic sexual deviancy and violence. It's a noir, transhumanist/cyberpunk detective story which ends up linking all these seemingly unrelated stories into a larger conspiracy that really doesn't need to be gutted to make it palatable for the squeamish.

I would also add that I actually liked The Boys comic but I found it to be just more cynical anti-cape stuff that I feel like Garth has already covered before in more humorous ways. Preacher's best moments aren't it's most disturbing ones but it's "friends on an impossible quest" and it could easily stand on it's own just with Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy's past and obviously Herr Starr.

Preacher's series has been lame though. It's not the show's fault that it's too blasphemous to shoot/reenact. 4 seasons to get to the good stuff isn't a good sign.

So glad that Tek Knight was at least name-dropped this season. He's hoping that he ends up raping and dirty talking a meteor next season.

Are any of the B-list DC live action shows actually any good? I've only really seen Gotham, and I need something to fill that void, but the Arrowverse shit looks crappy and cheap. I guess there's also a Pennyworth show for some fucking reason, but that looks awful too. I thought the same thing about Gotham too before I got into it though, so I'm happy to get proven wrong.

Also, apparently Kevin Conroy is set to play a real life old Bruce Wayne in some show I don't remember, and that sounds amazing.

The Flash season 1 and 2 are alright, after that it just repeats itself. Keep in mind that it largely follows a 'monster of the week' format.
Same goes for Green Arrow really.
I tried to watch Supergirl but it's just an amalgation of the worst aspects of the other two.

Legends of Tomorrow is super fun, the first season kinda drags but it really picks up in S2 and it's still good. Doesn't take itself too serious and the concept of the show keeps it fresh and entertaining.

The 4 shows I mentioned above do a crossover "event" almost every season. Batman is supposed to show up in the next one.

Titans is a bit meh, but I personally never cared for the characters.

I heard Constatine was also a show but I never watched it. He shows up in Legends though (same actor and everything) and he's pretty fun so I guess it's worth checking out.

Heard good things about Doom Patrol, haven't seen it myself.

Krypton was a thing for some reason, recently got canceled. Probably because it's a show about Krypton.

There's probably more shows, these things are an infestation.

So Lindelof has been saying that this series will be a "remix" instead of a reboot and takes the landscape of the comic and predicts what it'll be like 30 years later in present day.

But there's a glaring plothole: Everything happened that happened in the movie (with the addition of the squid thing from the comic) but it seems like Rorschach's notebook was never leaked to the public. So it doesn't really make sense why there would be a white supremacist group worshipping him or why the public would think Ozymandias is dead.

This is actually addressed, just not on the show, probably in an attempt to avoid having too much exposition. Long and short would be that the journal was released, it was just largely dismissed in the mainstream due to the paper it was printed in (which seems a pretty reasonable outcome considering how The New Frontiersman is portrayed in the novel). Seems fair to assume this leads directly to the formation of the white supremacist group portrayed in the show.

The better question would be why is a gaggle of racist nuts using fucking Rorshach as their messiah? I'd figure Ozymandias being the literal definition of "aryan perfection" (good looking, alleged genius, willing and able to commit genocide) he'd be the shoe-in, while Rorshach, while definitely a nut in theory, in practice is the one guy that wasn't about to compromise his values for a peace that wasn't going to last long anyway.

Maybe off topic, but it just bugs me. nb

No to defend this shitshow, but it's not totally out of left (right?) field. Rorschach was definitely of a conservative bent, in spite of his love for Harry Truman (which he only did because it was a way to worship his absent father). He was a strong social conservative, his opening monologue literally bashes "liberals and intellectuals" in a way Tucker Carlson wishes he could sound. He hates female promiscuity and uses the word whore like he's written by Frank Miller. Alan Moore has said in interviews that while the character was adapted from "The Question", Steve Ditko's Randian "Mr. A" was also part of his fedoracore influence. And then when he dies he mails his journal to Watchmen's equivalent of The Blaze newsletter. Ted Cruz has said that Rorschach is his favorite superhero. It's part of the way conservatives like to think of themselves, as people who will draw some arbitrary line in the sand that can never be crossed (although I suppose that's true of a lot of modern liberal factions too, it's not the default stereotype, at least in U.S.). I don't find it a stretch to think a bunch of racist cosplayers could think this would be what he wanted, they take the seed of anti government, anti elitism, conspiracy bullshit and just kind of breed their innate racism into it.

Ozymandias is a (possible) homosexual liberal elite, literally a self described "world's smartest man" who thinks he's entitled to make the most dramatic decision in human history without consulting any of the little people. No way what would be Trump country in our timeline would love him.

I guess if you put it that way it makes sense. God knows the showrunner wouldn't be able to.

I always saw it as Rorschach sending it to them not because they were "right-wing" but more like they were the only nuts that would not mind publishing it, as everyone else would claim their "credibility" would take the hit (whether or not said credibility was long already in the shitter.)

Rorschach was written explicitly to be a far-right xeonphobic incel, are you people kidding with this?

Just look at the shit Rorschach was obsessed with reading OYVEY!, it's pretty clear what kind of person this is supposed to appeal to.

Also, "refusal to compromise one's 'values' (where 'values' means sadistic retributive vigilantee violence without due process for its own sake) out of a puritanical certainty in one's own moral superiority" is abolutely the kind of thinking that proto-fascists and conservative fundamentalists go for.

This. Rorshach was a moral extremist seeing everything in black and white terms and incapable of any kind of compromise. Alan Moore was actually really confused as to why so many people latched on to the character since he had made him to be morally reprehensible.

Ozymandias is sort of the other extreme. His moral relativism, utilitarianism and intellectual elitism were too pronounced and lead him to become the typical evil actions for noble cause ''For the greater good'' arch villain. Even at the end of the comic he has this moment of admitting that while he himself has become evil, the actions he took were none the less necessary in his view.*

The thing is, none of the watchmen are supposed to be admirable heroe's you worship. they're all pretty terrible in their own way (Comedian's cynicism, Manhattan's detachment, Nite Owl's meekness, Silk Spectre's... something? been a while since I read it so no clue what her flaws were any more but hopefully someone will weigh in.)

*Unlike the rorshach part above where Alan Moore straight up admitted that as fact, I do not actually know Alan Moore's intentions with ozymandias outside of what's in the comic itself. This is merely my own interpretation.

The show gets a lot of hate but it's not bad. There have only been an episode or two (out of six so far) that really stand out though. The episode with Harley vs Robin (Damien) has been the best so far. It's so over the top it feels like a TV-MA episode of Batman: Brave and the Bold.

To me it feels really close to The Looney Tunes sitcom Cartoon Network did years ago with the cartoon mentality being a bit more grounded.

Anyone looking forward to Bloodshot? I hope Valiant’s first film of their new cinematic universe is a good one but it’s gonna be hard competing with the likes of DC and Marvel but maybe they can etch out their own niche in comic book film adaptations.

Yeah I think the marketing and the film's title didn't do it any favors because it was a really good film having just watched it this week. The action was fun and Margot Robbie does a good job embodying Harley Quinn's persona. Much better than Suicide Squad, which I watched after Birds of Prey. Hopefully James Gunn can salvage it in the next film.

News coming out of Comic-Con @ Home:

>Marvel's Helstorm will debut on October 16 on Hulu.

>The 11th season of The Walking Dead is unsurprisingly not coming this October, but there will be more of Season 10 next year, says showrunner Angela Kang. Having revealed that the coronavirus delayed Season 10 finale will air on October 4 earlier today at Comic-Con@Home during the prerecorded TWD panel, Kang just told fans that an extra six episodes of the AMC zombie apocalypse series are coming in 2021.

>The sixth season of Fear The Walking Dead will debut on October 11, a week after TWD’s so-called Season 10 ender.

>The Boys are coming back for a third season at Amazon and the streamer has added an aftershow series ahead of the launch of season two. The news was revealed during The Boys panel at Comic-Con@Home. The superhero satire series will launch its second season on September 4. Friends star and former co-host of CBS’ The Talk Aisha Tyler will host and exec produce The Boys aftershow Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys, featuring members of the cast, creative team and other special guests.

>Disney is keeping 20th Century Studios/Marvel’s The New Mutants on the theatrical release calendar. Disney indicated that New Mutants would stick to its current Aug 28 release date.

Season 1 of Stargirl is over and... it was pretty good. The show was def better than it had any right to be. It turned out to be more of a JSA/Seven Soldiers of Victory show than a Stargirl/legacy superhero show but that helped the show more than it should have. Season 2 is probably going to be worse since it's now a CW property instead of a DCU property (goodbye budget).

Season 2 of Doom Patrol also ended this week. The season was cut short by an episode because of the pandemic but even ending on a cliffhanger, it ended quite well. It feels like DCU is over though and HBOMax will absorb most of its properties.

Ruby Rose finally revealed to Entertainment Weekly why she left Batwoman:

>"Being the lead of a superhero show is tough. [Laughs] Being the lead in anything is tough," Rose, who didn't discover the full extent of her injuries until shooting the film The Doorman, tells EW. "But I think, in that particular instance, it was a lot more difficult because I was still recovering from my surgery. I had my surgery and then 10 days later I went to work, which maybe wasn't the best idea. Most people take about a month or three off before they return to work, so it was definitely made more difficult by that. But as far as being a lead of a show or a film — regardless if it's action or if it's emotional — in whichever ways it's taxing."

>"The challenge is sort of outweighed," she adds. "The accomplishment and the trust that people put in you to do that role and then there's also the vibrancy of being able to come on set and set the mood and the tone and the trust being put into it is something that's been such an honor. And I love my experience in [Batwoman]. I'm so grateful that we got to achieve everything that we did and I'm proud of everyone that worked on it. I'm proud of myself for working under sort of interesting circumstances, you know, with the recovery and all. I would definitely do [TV] again. I just think that it was also time for me to take a break to fully heal and then return."

>Rose elaborates that her decision to leave the superhero series wasn't just due to her injuries.

>"It wasn't so much [the injury], especially because after we wrapped up we didn't get to finish the real finale because of COVID," she says. "You know, you have time in quarantine and sort of isolation to just think about a lot of different things and what you want to achieve in life and what you want to do. I think for both [me and the producers], it was a great opportunity to have a dialogue about a lot of things. I respect them so much and they've been so respectful to me."

>"I think it was actually a beautiful way to do something, especially since that was the first time it's ever been done — the first time Batwoman has ever been played in live-action and that she was LGBTQ. I'm very honored to have been able to play her."

Bad idea to not take enough time off to recover from back surgery especially given that this was her first major leading role though I don't think recasting Batwoman will affect the show that much though I'm sure fans of Rose won't come back for season 2.

>Sony Pictures is not only growing its slate of its Universe of Marvel Characters but is building on the female characters at the center of it, and looks to have landed one of the sought female directors in Hollywood. Sources tell Deadline that Olivia Wilde has closed a deal to direct and develop a secret Marvel film project revolving around a female character in the universe. While not confirmed, it is expected that the story will be centered on Spider-Woman.

>The project has been a high priority since the top of the year and Wilde came close to passing on it as her dance card has begun to fill up quite quickly. At the end of the day, the idea of having a chance to launch her own female superhero was too hard to pass up, and she eventually came around to fully committing to the project.

That's a good move by Sony if true. Wilde really hit it out of the park with her directorial debut Booksmart and hopefully Spider-Woman will too.

Bunch of Marvel news coming out of Disney's Investors Day:

>Secret Invasion will see Samuel L. Jackson return as Nick Fury, while Ben Mendelsohn will reprise his role as Talos from Captain Marvel. While plot details have yet to be announced, it is assumedly based on the “Secret Invasion” event from 2008 that revealed that Skrulls had invaded Earth for years and were impersonating several superheroes along with regular everyday people.

>Ironheart will star Dominque Thorne (If Beale Street Could Talk) as Riri Williams, the genius teen inventor who adapts Tony Stark’s Iron Man armor into her own suit in the comics after Stark was put into a coma after the events of the Civil War II event.

>And finally, Armor Wars will star Don Cheadle as James Rhodes aka War Machine. Based on the 1987 to 1988 event in Iron Man written by Bob Layton and David Michelinie, the series will see Stark’s tech “fall into the wrong hands.”

>Disney Plus will also host Marvel’s “first live-action Christmas special,” The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, written and directed by James Gunn, which will be shot during the production of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and will hit Disney Plus during the 2022 holiday season. Finally, I Am Groot will be a series of shorts featuring new characters from around the Marvel Universe.

>These shows joins a packed slate of films and TV series waiting in the Marvel Studios wings. The rollout begins on January 15, 2021 with WandaVision, the Disney Plus exclusive series about the Vision and the Scarlet Witch and their darkly surreal home life. Marvel will return to major movie releases on with Black Widow on May 7, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on July 9, and The Eternals on Nov. 5. Sony’s untitled Spider-Man sequel will continue its corner of the MCU on Dec. 17.

>Marvel’s Disney Plus series’ Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be released on March 19, Loki will be released in May 2021, and Hawkeye will also bow in on the Disney Plus service later in the year, with Thor: Love and Thunder, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and sequels for Black Panther and Captain Marvel set for 2022. Marvel is also still in preproduction on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, a Blade movie, and Disney Plus shows for Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight.

They also confirmed Tatiana Maslany will star as She-Hulk with Mark Ruffalo and Tim Roth reprising their roles as Hulk and Abomination. Also Hailee Steinfeld is confirmed to star as Kate Bishop in Hawkeye. Disney is really going all out with Marvel and Star Wars.

>When She-Hulk arrives on Disney+, it won’t be the hour-long action-dramas that we’ve traditionally been used to seeing from superhero shows. Speaking with Emmy Magazine, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has revealed (per JoBlo) that the Tatiana Maslany-starring series will take a very different format — namely, a half-hour legal comedy.

>Feige also said that the series will stay true to the She-Hulk series from John Byrne. That’s an interesting tone to take, as Byrne’s run on Sensational She-Hulk in 1989 was a satirical series and was one of the first books to have a character be aware that she was a comic book character, allowing her to break the fourth wall.

>The series will star Maslany as the titular character, aka Jennifer Walters who is Bruce Banner’s cousin and gets She-Hulk powers by receiving an emergency blood transfusion from him. Unlike Bruce, she is able to retain her personality in her transformed form. Mark Ruffalo will appear as Bruce Banner/Hulk, while Tim Roth will reprise his role as The Abomination/Emil Blonsky.

This could be interesting if it's taking a much different tone than the other Marvel shows especially being adapted from Byrne's run.

Especially with the DCEU, it's harder to enjoy these dumb superhero movies when you don't have a theater full of clapping sweaty manchildren around you socially guiding you into thinking it's good.

Also, not having 3 or 4 of them come out in a year has given audiences a T-break, meaning the forumlaic plots and dialogue have become less normalized.

Also the fact that this one is some weird boomer Reaganite/Likud propaganda probably doesn't help.

I mean I guess there’s a message in there about just knowing your place and being happy with how thing are which to me is liberal ideology. But the villain is literally a business man whose out of control corporate climbing is going to end the world. The guy who I guess is suppose to be Reagan even makes things way worse for no other reason than he has bad politics.

Don’t get me wrong, the whole universe is built on 2 and half films made by an undeniable fascist. And cut a liberal and a fascist bleeds and all that. But I don’t think this movie was as direct propaganda especially Reagan propaganda.

One of the arguments I've heard is that "Batman doesn't joke". Which just isn't true if you read the comics. He certainly has a dry and sometimes dark sense of humor but it's there. It's a bit played up in the movies but it's still within character imo.

What I really like about the Affleck interpretation is that it's a much older Batman who doesn't hold back. He's tired of the same old shit and he's gonna fuck you up real bad if you stand in his way. He doesn't explicitly kill but if some people die in the crossfire then so be it.

Batman flat out murders a ton of Lex's cronies during the car chase in BvS. I mean, he literally slams into a car full of criminals then uses it as a gian flail to crush another car full of criminals, that goes way beyond the "crossfire" excuse.

On the other hand, almost all modern live action depictions of Batman have killed, so that really isnt' a problem.

To be fair, even in the comics where there had been precedents of Wanda having immense bursts of power,it was a bit jarring whenever the writers had her going full reality warper for plot convenience. Movie Wanda was basically throwing around stuff and doing some mind-fuckery, so it is kinda out of left field that she is pulling something like this.

Exactly. There's more than meets the eye with these first two episodes parodying 1950s and 1960s sitcoms, which I thought have been pretty faithful and humorous parodies of those decades' sitcoms like the classic misunderstanding plot with Wanda thinking its their anniversary when it's actually dinner with Vision's boss and boss' wife and then Wanda and Vision trying to do the talent show without making it seem like they're actually using their powers to the audience.

The show also does serve as an introduction to S.W.O.R.D. given the logo on the toy helicopter Wanda picked up and on the beekeeper's outfit. I can't tell if they're hiding within these television show universes or something. Like the scenes where Vision's boss was choking and when they saw the beekeeper before time got rewinded certainly indicated that to me.

and I just watched episode 3. Definitely getting Truman Show vibes with Wandavision. I mean Monica/Geraldine basically asked Wanda about her brother being killed by Ultron and Agnes and Randall trying not to tell Vision whats really happening. Not to mention that random cut and redo they did.

It’s starting to unravel and get more interesting though and the 1970s parody was alright but not as humorous as the previous two but this episode was gonna be more drama than comedy.

Agreed and they actually pulled back the curtain this last episode so now people can stop complaining about the slow burn. At least we're starting to see that this isn't some Truman Show type thing but rather Wanda using this sitcom reality she had created to deal with the grief she feels for losing her brother and Vision. The part where she saw Vision's dead body before she restored the illusion gave my friend a jump scare but it was a dark moment. It was cool to see Jimmy Woo back and that he can do the card trick that Ant-Man taught him. Thought the bonding between him and Darcy over watching the sitcom reality was cute.

As people have said, the show's storyline is a lot similar to House of M though without the X-Men and all that but I can see where they're going with this and the role she'll end up playing in the next Doctor Strange film.

The cat is out of the bag but at some point, they were going to have to given this is on Disney+ and it's part of Phase 4 tying into a future film. I was pleasantly surprised about how they handled it because while they revealed some of their hand to give the audience a good idea of Wanda's state of mind and the aftermath of the Blip, from a dramatic perspective contrasting with Spider-Man: Far From Home's comedic perspective, as we saw with Monica in the hospital, it also leaves viewers wanting to see where it goes going into the 2nd half of the season now that we know what we know from the previous episode.

I'm not, but only because I'm used to her at this point since she was the same in the Thor movies. I'm assuming your issue is that you don't buy her as a physicist and just slapping glasses on her to make her the ''smart'' character is lazy? Because that was my issue.

I marked out for Evan Peters reprising the X-Men version of Quicksilver. I hope we get more multiverse shit like that going forward if that's the direction they're heading in and if Wanda says she's not in control and someone like Mephisto supposedly is manipulating things that are out of her control.

It's been praised everywhere else so it shouldn't really be a surprise. I haven't seen a show with this much hype and discussion around it since Game of Thrones.

Well Agent Carter is part of the MCU and Peggy Carter plays an integral role in Captain America's story. Should be interesting to see how The Falcon and The Winter Soldier continues his story and bringing back Sharon Carter and telling her story after the events of Civil War.

Outside of Paul Bettany and Lizzie Olsen’s performances, the show really isn’t that good imo. It’s like Agents of Shield, but worse. I’m just curious to see how Marvel continues to use their newly bought property, though.

Eh, I'm split. Maybe I'm just too much of an optimist. I HATED Jared Leto's Joker, it was the most annoying, pathetic rendition of the Joker I'd ever seen. It was like a Hot Topic scene-emo Randy Stair tried to act like a rap video pimp, and just whined a lot. I also despised that he tried to stop Joaquin Phoenix's Joker, which was infinitely better and more respectable than that piece of shit Suicide Squad, and Phoenix is such a better actor. I also have a growing dislike of Leto because he runs a weird scammy pseudo-cult, and because his band sucks so fucking badly.
However, he has been a good actor before. I really liked him in Requiem for a Dream, Fight Club, Mr. Nobody, Blade Runner 2049, American Psycho, and Girl Interrupted. The trailer for Morbius honestly looks cool.
These DC movies are getting notorious for having great trailers and being shitty, as with Man of Steel. I didn't see the last Justice League because I heard it was shit. But I did really, really enjoy Wonder Woman and Aquaman.
If there's one way to salvage the horrible fucking abomination that is Leto's Joker, it's to fuck him up so he's deranged. And maybe a post-apocalyptic hellscape will do that.
The trailer looks like it could be okay. Or it could be another case of throwing obscene amounts of money at a piece of shit.

Okay, I'm about 97% sure this is gonna be a piece of shit, but I'm holding out for that 3%

I really liked last week's episode of Wandavision especially since it was a parody of Malcolm in the Middle and that's one of my favorite comedies of all time (the intro, the whip pans between scenes, and Billy and Tommy talking to the audience notwithstanding) and Halloween episodes in general. I also did like the scene with Vision seeing all of the residents frozen in place and then finding out from Agnes that he's dead. It makes you wonder what's gonna happen to the residents of Westview after this is all over, probably a memory wipe or something though Wanda expanding the Hex and sucking Darcy into it should be interesting to see.

Leto is a good actor but his portrayal of Joker in Suicide Squad was bad. I don't see his new portrayal being much better other than getting to see him interact with Batman. I'm sure the Snyder cut will be better than Joss' version but it's not gonna become like the GOAT superhero film or anything like that.

Yup. Sucks that they're clearly setting her up to be part of the MCU What with her undisclosed relation/issue to Captain Marvel, her mom having the nicname ''Photon'' (a black female marvel superhero) and that whole business in episode 6 about her dna being affectedby the hex and ''omg what will happen if you go back in?!'' Haven't seen episode 7 yet, I will probably just wait for episode 8 since I'm busy til next week then make a movie night out of it.

I thought the episode was disappointing though I think it's most cause I don't give a shit about Modern Family. Like I get it's supposed to pay homage to that show and other mockumentary type sitcoms but I felt like unlike the previous week's episode that paid homage to Malcolm in the Middle and the single camera sitcoms of the early 2000s, this one missed its mark.

The only things in the episode that I actually liked were Vision's talking head scenes and realizing "why the fuck am I doing these?" and of course Agnes' reveal as Agatha Harkness .

>does anyone else feel like Monica is a really uninteresting character?

I think it's hard, at least for me, to care about her character when it's an adult version of a character we haven't really spent much time getting to really know other than knowing that she got snapped and Maria had died during the time she was gone before she got blipped back to Earth and I feel like her role in the story doesn't feel earned you know? I'm more compelled by Jimmy than her just because I already know what he's like based on his appearances in the Ant-Man films (card trick learned notwithstanding) and his role as an FBI agent in all of this.

I think that Monica is doing a great job acting. Her character is just sort of bland. They need to develop her more and give her more personality. Right now she just has "bland super hero" as her character. Which was the entire problem with Captain Marvel too.

Yeah I'd agree with that. While Teyonah Paris is a great fit for playing Monica, the character itself just needs more development and they need to flesh her out as being more than just Maria's daughter working for S.W.O.R.D. trying to investigate what's going on in Westview and realizing her cells are changing after going through the Hex and gaining superpowers. I don't think that should have to wait till Captain Marvel 2 for them to do that but I guess we'll see.

At least, in the modern, real-time Hollywood scene it does.

I think Marvel has obviously set the bar so high for anything not just super heroes comp anymore, and DC is just giving people a generic live-action showing of their own while it's hot. They know there isn't any franchise competing against that Infinity War/EndGame record breaking sell. All they can do is put something out while it's relevant and see who bites.

Man of Steel was legit and I'd also like a dedicated Batfleck flick. The only thing I disliked about BvS was the 'Martha angle', I blame the mother worship subliminal messaging in Hollywood.

It's because DC has a bunch of separate universes with their DECU, their one-shot films like Joker, Arrowverse shows on The CW, the other shows connected to the Arrowverse via Crisis of Infinite Earths like Stargirl (which will be on The CW for season 2), Doom Patrol, Titans, etc, and finally the non-Arrowverse shows like Lucifer, Pennyworth, and Y: The Last Man. I believe Peacemaker is gonna be the first show that ties directly into the DCEU since it'll be a TV spinoff of The Suicide Squad but I could be wrong.

I actually liked the Snyder Cut, it's a WAY better movie than the Josstice League, and the best entry in his DCEU films. ZSJL>MoS>BvS. The movie gains a lot by developing Cyborg instead of sidelining him like Whedon did. Also, this time around Steppenwolf actually felt like an actual character. Barry ended with the short end of the plot stick, but hey, you can't win them all.

On the downside, there are a few scenes that go on and on and seem to never stop. Also, I severely disliked the plot twist at the end of the scene with Martha meeting Lois.

Also, fuck Whedon for what he did to Cyborg/Ray Fischer. Cyborg is literally the heart of this damn movie.

Also I highly suspect he got fleshed out because he was the actor most available for reshoots.
