    You thought he was the best thing in Justice League? I thought he and Batman in general were horrible in that movie.

    He was good in BvS, although I thought WW's part in that movie was by far the most entertaining. It just wasn't a big role.

    What made you feel like he was a better Batman in BvS? Granted, I blame a lot of the issues with the script and its portrayal of Batman, but, while the course correct was jarring, I think it presented a better Batman than BvS.

    As for Affleck, I’ve enjoyed him in the role in general.

    I thought Affleck just didn't care in JL, whereas I thought he really tried in BvS.

    Also, from a story standpoint, he actually did shit in BvS that made you see him as a super hero. In JL that character looked really out of place compared to the others. Maybe that was a Whedon thing, and Whedon had similar problems in the first two Avengers movies with Cap.

    I’m just genuinely flummoxed by people thinking MOS, BvS, and JL are good. I prefer the Russos to Whedon but I bet that if he had the reigns from the start, the DC universe wouldn’t be a dumpster fire. Snyder is terrible.

    If you’re asking me to judge it by that picture alone (that was created in some 3D illustration program) then I may agree and say it doesn’t look too great.

    However, I haven’t seen the live-action film yet, so it’s difficult to denounce the vehicle.

    It's essentially a 3D model, not the actual design.

    But yes, it looks like a souped up car with pointed fins in the back, very evocative of the old Batmobile. It only needs a big bat-head on the front. I love the idea

    Looks better than Nolan's souped up Polaris Razr, IMO.

    The MoS trailer is one of the all time greats. I was so excited. Then Superman killed someone.

    Finished it the other day. Loved it. Can't wait for S2 to start.

    Watching Titans right now. Also Fantastic. Will likely start Swamp Thing or Star Girl next.

    Schumacher is a better director than what Batman & Robin would indicate. In fact, if anything he showed how good a director he was at executing a studio's very bad idea/vision for the movie. His Batman Forever could have been really great had he been allowed to make it what he wanted.

    Makes sense if it's Flashpoint-esque or if they use the movie to explore alternate realities.

    He wanted Batman Forever to be a lot less silly. He wanted Chase Meridian to dig into Bruce/Batman's psyche and understand why someone would do what Bruce does. It was going to be a lot more psychological thriller when he first signed on to the movie. Overtime, 90% of that got lost in development, and all that remains is some deleted scenes that don't even scratch the surface of all he wanted to do.

    Not saying Joel was the right guy for Batman, not at all, but the guy who made The Lost Boys could have made a really moody, heady film with the character. He just never really cared about the source material enough to fight for it. When WB said "make it a cartoon" he basically said "yeah okay" and went with it.

    Yeah I saw that just after I posted it. I think the Flash movie has gone through more re-writes than anything else in the DCEU. Probably because they know it's their one chance to create an in-universe solution to all the problems caused by the failure of the Snyder movies.

    Maybe but he was a class-three prick and a half during the shoot.

    Then again, Tommy Lee Jones walked up to Jim Carrey on their first day together and said "I do not abide your brand of comedy." so there was a lot of friction to go around.
