So everyone would speak in the same clever, sarcastic voice and Batgirl would kick everyone's ass? I'm in.

Batman the most Maevel of all of DC characters?

Nah, Batman doesn't give a fark about anyone's opinion. He's rich. Has no problem getting laid.

He uses his parents death as rage fuel, doesn't mope about it. And he's competent. And if a sidekick dies, he puts their uniform in a trophy case then gets another one.

And that's why they gave it to Nolan last time? Or Marvel trusted Whedon with the Avengers?

What a farking stupid headline.

Or why they ignored Whedon's desire to do Wonder Woman to make a bomb of a pilot? Or screwed up getting Fables onscreen so badly that ABC eventually said "fark you" and developed their own Fables rip-off? Or made Jonah Hex and Green Lantern?

Whedon admitted he couldn't crack Wonder woman and left the project.

Avenger was good, because the lack of whedonisms. Except the death if Coulson...which was not.

And Fables was an ABC decision, not WB. And WB animations have had far superior products than marvel!

WB also had great adaptations of Watchmen, 300, Reds, string of great Batman an a few Superman films.

People forget about Marvels suck age with Punisher movies, Ghost Rider, Daredevil, 1 Hulk,

Even during their 'suck age' you could see there was light at the end of the tunnel though. The final assault in Punisher was solid, but offset by the major suck that was Travolta and the whole villain setup and surviving being shot in the freaking chest point blank. War Zone was more true to the comics, but suffered from poor plot pacing. Ghost Rider had to deal with the suck that was Eva Mendes/Nicolas Cage and the emo villain, but Peter Fonda as the devil was awesome and they got the CGI pretty close to being right. The second GR I thought had a great look for Ghost Rider, but again sucked for the villains. Daredevil had one of the most inspired awesome castings of Fisk with MCD, but failed because Elektra ruined every scene she was in on top of other things. 1 Hulk, ok yes, was horrible pretty much all around. If I have to say it did something right it'd be... maybe Sam Elliot because I love most of whatever he's in?

I think a Paul Verhoeven Batman would pretty much rock.
 
2013-05-31 11:18:57 AM
Yes because Nolan is more like Uwe Boll than Whedon.
 
2013-05-31 11:21:26 AM
Or, to recycle a joke I've used before, Whedon fanboys would biatch when the film ends, assuming it was canceled too early, and if those network bozos had put it on a better night, everybody would have watched it.

MichiganFTL: War Zone was more true to the comics, but suffered from poor plot pacing.


That's such an odd movie. Pretty much everything in it is from Punisher MAX which is rightly held up as one of the best written comics of the last decade, the acting is uniformly good and the direction is solid... yet it's terrible. And I can't pinpoint WHY it's terrible.

I'll tell why. Jigsaw was a direct rip off of Nicholson's Joker. The actor was in a way different movie. They should have hired some parkur people to do the jumping around gang, and in the end it was directed very, very, badly.

If Whedon made a Batman movie the following characters would die (In no particular order of course):

-Commissioner Gordon
-Robin
-Alfred
-Batgirl (Barbara Gordon)
-Harley Quinn

Because none of those movies were done by the Marvel Production company, they were done by independent studios and co-financed with Marvel (Punisher = Lions Gate, Ghost Rider = Fox, Hulk = Universal).

/Am I the only one who liked Tom Jane's Punisher?

i thought it was ok.  i liked the fight with the big russian guy.  i didn't like the dyed black hair.  and, the punisher is not a very interesting character.  but, i could sit through it.

/ can't say the same for the more recent punisher movie with that guy who played pullo (or whatever) from rome.

The only good Punisher movie ever made was that Tom Jane short with Ron Perlman in it.

I thought Ghost Rider, Daredevil, the first Hulk (Ang Lee), and the Punisher movies were made by someone else and not Marvel. Iron Man kicked off Marvel actually owning their properties and being able to create them.
 
2013-05-31 11:59:45 AM
Yeah, that that guy who wrote Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and The Avengers really makes some highbrow stuff.   I'm not sure people are ready for these kinds of Tolstoyan-esque insights into the human condition.

Actually, yeah... Fox and Universal, IIRC, were the ones who released them. But it's not like Marvel wasn't involved.

Nope. I'm with you there, buddy. I thought it was an OK movie and Tom Jane was great. But Travolta's hairpiece was bad casting.
/Thought it was funny that Travolta's lieutenant was the closeted gay man. Oh irony!

They didn't let women have belly buttons until the 1970s.

theofficialbellybuttonforum.com

Nipples weren't allowed until June of 1986.

The existence of the clitoris is still highly contested.
 
2013-05-31 12:06:43 PM
A Whedon Batman movie would probably resemble a Schumacher Batman movie. Only even more gay.

There's more than one version of Batman that showcase's Alfred's dry wit so that would actually play into Whedon's hands pretty well

I'd be ok with a Whedon Batman. We can't going any lower than Batman & Robin!!

And you know Whedon would write a great Harley!

I'd compare DC to Marvel movies and say which were better, but there aren't enough DC movies for a fair fight.
Yet, for every Lundgren/Punisher or X-Men 3, there's a Green Lantern and Superman 4.
 
2013-05-31 12:35:04 PM
I will say this on every thread talking about WB/DC until it happens:

Give Bruce Timm the reins and let him do whatever he wants.  Don't question him.  He has proven time and time again throughout the DC animated features and series that he how to do DC right.  For example, I just watched "Superman/Shazam: the return of black Adam" on Netflix.  It was really three 4 DC shorts (all produced by Timm): Superman/Shazam, The Spectre, Green Arrow and Jonah Hex.  All were as good as the Nolan stuff.  The Spectre made me want a feature of that character (which I had never heard of...) and Jonah Hex mad me wish for what could have been with the live action adaptation.

Well GR1 kindof sucked because he never actually *did* anything.  Watch it again.  Blaze hulks out and the bad guys just 'end'.  No fight, so cool, powers, nothing,

GR2 was slightly better, but still low quality in many ways.  But what it *did* do right, was show a furtherance of Blaze's story as well as actual super heroey things.  The final Mad Max road scene at the end was really well done and actually *gasp* shot in daylight!

Also, Lord Greystoke, Raiden Macleod was in it:

2013-05-31 01:09:43 PM
A Whedon Bat-film could be great.  I like the first two Nolan films, and the 1st to Burton films are okay. I used to think that the Schumacher films were abominations, and I still do, but compared to Darren Aronofsky's once planned Year One, they come off as gold. Dude wanted Bruce to be a homeless guy who teams up with a blackl mechanic named Big Al. The Batmobile woulda been a Lincoln towncar, and he calls himself Batman cause he punches dudes in the face and leaves an imprint of the ring he wears that bears a raised TW(thomas wayne) that somehow looks like a Bat.

Or simply, Aronofsky smokes a lot of crack.

Pretty much that subby.  Then again, after they disastrously said "no" to his proposed WW movie, I'm guessing (given a 2nd chance) the WB execs would promise him a seat on the board if they could pry Whedon away from Marvel at this point.

The Black Widow escape scene was all Whedon, the dialogue dripped "Whedonisms" - Point Break, that guy is playing Galaga, Flying Monkeys,Half-Brother, etc,etc. I hate to break it to you but that movie had Whedon stink all over it and that's why it was good.

I'll be the first to admit:  I would love to see a Black Widow movie with Whedon directing it.  Maybe Scarlett doesn't have the chops to actually pull off a leading role; I'd rather see it first and critique it later.
