No discussion of WB doing the most DECU thing ever and making Superman black to check a box?
He won't be "Superman" will he? I was under the impression it was not Kal'El/Clark Kent, but some other guy with a similar powerset, ala Miles Morales.
Every report I've seen has specifically said black Superman. There are a number of alternatives for actual black characters they could have used but so far it seems like they're taking the lazy way out.
There have been a couple. Superman of Earth 2 is Calvin Ellis. There is also Val-Zod, another Kryptonian with a similar back story, but it sounds like they are going the traditional route, which is dumb.
It seems that they basically feel like they can't afford to not use Kal'el's namesake to get viewers in theaters. Every time they've made a positive step, they fuck it up with 2 missteps, and as a result, have no trust from their fans to do a movie featuring a lesser-known character.
I'll gladly take the L on this discussion if something changes but right now, it seems like DC is up to the same shitty takes.
You are correct. They are so stupid.
Some alternatives that are already builtin but would require DC to have a shred of creativity:
Shaq had a go at it but maybe it's time for a newer version.
It really is amazing to consider how frequently WB fucks the chicken in comparison to Disney.
Disney and WB are Hollywood's greatest studio rivalry but WB's terrible management is ruining it.
Disney/Marvel's 3-minute trailer previewing their upcoming releases, released earlier this week, had more emotion in it than the entirety of the DCEU to this point. How poorly WB has failed at managing to tell stories about their characters that anyone gives a shit about, outside of "it's cool to see ____ on the big screen," is absolutely mind-blowing.
The sports equivalent of Disney/WB is Bama/UT. I mean sure it’s a traditional rivalry, but it’s so one sided right now it hardly feels like it.
I almost mentioned Ohio St./Michigan, but yeah that works too
This guy was great in AHS
who fucking cares?
You want a better Batman Forever? Best I can give you is Batman Forever with that one "giant bat dream" cutscene put back in. It's on the DVD extra features. There. Saved you an HBO Max sub.
Apparently it was about 40 minutes of cut footage.
we're seeing shark dick
Who hangs dong? Let’s take a vote. I’m going with cena
Apparently he has an infamously small penis.
My money's on Elba.
It will be one of the generals/soldiers who have Harley.
Also a new Superman too
Ah I see. Interesting.
So will mark hamill be in this?
Think he said he's done playing Joker (too hard on his voice). But he's said that a time or two before and has come back for a project or two.
And a new TLH trailer dropped
How do you make a single movie based on a game based on a comic that ran for years?
An actual movie based on just the first Injustice game would be so awesome.
2 was great as well. Both of those have great story modes to use for a movie.
This your king?
Snyder disputed the assertion that his movies have a right-wing agenda: “People see what they want to see.” Their gripe is legitimate, particularly given the fascistic lens of 300 and Snyder’s own professed admiration for Ayn Rand. But this is also the same guy who explained that he wants to adapt Rand’s The Fountainhead because he thinks it’d be “super fun and crazy” to do.
He also said in that article he’s a voting Dem. Is his slants appeal to chuds then he should get it instead of the rest of those grifters.
JJ Abrams is involved so that’s a hard pass from me. God damn go the fuck away
Let's hope Reeves and Timm have more control.
Hopefully, but man this guy has ruined so much shit I enjoy. It’s like the universe is laughing at me. DCAU has been perfect, why involve Abrams at all?
Oh I like that
I didn't mind the first one but I like this a lot
Chuck Bartowski is a hunk
That is soooo much better. The fakeness of the muscles under the old one was terrible.
