    That would certainly be a choice. I have my doubts on the validity of this one though. I don't think they can even officially do any casting right now.

    Ya could be bullshit. Maybe he’s just on a shortlist or plans to meet with Gunn for a part? Either way all the normal Twitter leakers are saying he’s the Batman. I think he’d do well.

    Terry McGinnis is half Asian. Prime Earth’s Batman, Wang Baixi, is Asian.

    Should I do a little background research on the comic character or should I go in fully blind

    I’d just go in not knowing. It’s an origin story so just roll with it because it’s probably not going to be 100% comic accurate. That’s what I plan on doing anyways.

    I'd say blind is fine. There are different versions of Blue Beetle though. Could be something they mention in the movie or you can look up later.

    Did you ever watch Young Justice?

    As far as intro movies go I’d say its up there with Ironman and Captain America. It does exactly what it needs to but stays pretty formulaic in format

    the mid credit scene is the only important one

    I will say the main actor is pretty much his Cobra Kai self like he’s not winning awards anytime soon

    But the actress they get to play his love interest is, how would you say it in her native language, FOGO

    like maldito amigos

    I did not realize she was Neymar’s ex tho

    like going from your little Cobra Kai kids to that is like going from single A to the MLBs

    Watched the Flash. Wasn't as bad as I expected but certainly wouldn't call it good.

    I really liked what Muschietti did with IT but slightly concerned with him directing Batman.

    Thought the characters, especially Batman were good. It lost me with the paradox stuff and the way the multiverse was done. I think with a straightforward Batman story he could do a decent one. Probably not Nolan or Reeves level but still good. Seemed like the flash movie got lost in the woods with the story more than the characters to me

    Just watched Man of Steel for the first time in 10 years. So frustrating how they fucked up the use of the character so badly because there's so much good stuff in there, especially Cavill and Adams. It's actually a tons better movie than I remembered and should have been a great launching pad for the franchise. :ohdear:

    Snyder's inability to create basic consistency in his storytelling doomed his universe to fail before it even got off the ground.

    DC really messed up by trying to race to the finish. Instead of taking time to set up everything they jumped right to Justice League and it caused everything to fail.

    Cavill never even got a second stand alone movie. Which is crazy when you think about it because Man of Steel was a successful.

    Not gonna lie I cut flash off as soon as it started dealing with two versions of Barry Allen. I really hate Ezra’s portrayal of the character and it annoys the absolute fuck out of me. Maybe I’ll dive back in another time but for now yeah no I wasn’t feeling it

    Don't. It was not good. The CGI is laughably bad. Like early 2000's bad. Story was convoluted at best at just a mess at worse.

    The thing that’s always amazed me is the DCU does such a better job at the TV aspect of the portrayals and sucks so hard at the movies, while the MCU is the exact opposite. They have solid movies and trash ass stuff they put out on D+

    While DC has made some stinkers I still think their best movies are better than Marvel best movies. I might be in the minority on that but Marvels stuff just all feels the same.

    Given that Nolan's Batman movies are a standalone franchise, I have zero idea how you could make this statement against the MCU's best.

    I just said DC. Not DCU. I think DC is stronger when they just make standalone stuff.

    Nolan's films, the Batman, The Joker, the Suicide Squad, the Watchmen (although this one is somewhat more controversial). All really good movies that I would take over most of Marvel's best films.

    I'm also a big cinematography fan and Marvel falls woefully short in that category most of the time.

    Ya it’s not a top priority must see first night kind of movie but I enjoyed the first one. The teaser caught my attention. Hope they figured out the story. Seems some of the test screenings didn’t go well so they had to make some major changes.

    Also I do love the pretty comic accurate suits. Black Manta is badass.
