Where will it play? Most theaters won't show NC-17/XX movies.

Good. Zack Snyder is in no way entering M Night Shymalan kind of territory at all. Everyone I know basically thinks 'I hate good movies but I love slow motion and noiZe, give me more Zach Snyder and make sure he's directing from the EDGE!!!'

I blame Zac Snider for me liking 'Identity Thief'. It was a terrible movIe, but at least it wasn't 'artistically imagined from the mind of__________'

This could be very good news or it could be really, really bad news.

Me, I'ma reserve serious judgement until I see some actual footage.

Pencil me as "cautiously optimistic" at present.

How about just one decent DC comic adaptation without some douchebag coming in to destroy the source material with his "vision"? It's like they're looking at Marvel and saying 'Us too!' but not realizing that Marvel, for all the errors here and there, generally stay within the bounds of their comic counterparts.

The closest anyone has gotten is Burton and Keaton with Batman and Batman Returns, which isn't saying too much as they were a bit campy themselves. The Batman presented in Nolans universe cannot exist within the realm of an extended DC universe. Snyders Superman wasn't great, but it really isn't hard to look better than Superman Returns.

The worst part is they have the best source material for films right in front of them, but ignore it. You take Bruce Timm's universe and swap out animated characters with real people. There, that's your hit film series.

Pretty much, although all of the "Batman has plans in case Superman turns evil" ideas fail if Superman doesn't tell Batman "Now I'm evil" but instead demonstrates it by turning Wayne Manor and the Batcave into lava while hanging on the edge of space soaking in sunlight.

OR, start from scratch.

Lotta good reference material, why not just make a good movie?

My girlfriend doesn't have 30+ years of Marvel/DC history like I do buy she loved Justice League: Doom and Avengers on Netflix.

Just make a good goddamned movie and no one needs an origin movie or Ryan Reynolds.

I would go to a Red Tornado, Cyborg or X-Factor movie in a second if delt with the right people. Nothing involving Cable, cause why?!

Yeah, prolly, but the Batman Superman fight in Frank Miller's BTDKR was still epic.
 
2013-07-20 06:57:23 PM  
Hardly a surprise really. They saw the money The Avengers took and want the same.

But Marvel took years to set up the Avengers. Will DC have the patience to do the same or just throw together a batman?superman movie?

That's what they are doing, this is the Man of Steel sequel they are talking about.

Boojum2k: That's what they are doing, this is the Man of Steel sequel they are talking about.


No, I think they're making a Man of Steel sequel and THEN this.

What they should do (and I say it in EVERY Superman thread now) is film "Injustice"

It would logically for the Justice League without the need for each one to have their own movies, and it's a great story.

They WON'T make it because they won't make Superman the villain, but they SHOULD
 
2013-07-20 07:07:31 PM  
Can we get someone to direct this movie who doesn't think his job is to make a two-hour video game cut scene?

No, Snyder said Batman would be in the sequel.

I've only seen Flash as a sidekick in JL and there didn't seem to be much to him.  Worked great as a comic foil and moral boost but the only interesting thing about him is his greatest fear.  And his power was pretty inconsistent it varied  from "will trip if you put something in his path" to "can move his molecules around so fast he can walk through walls"

Bats and Sups I think would only be good if they fight each other.  Bats has never been a team player even on JL.

Yeah with the abilities they both have in the comics supes could rips the bats head off and skull fark his bloody severed head before the bat could so much as flench unless Kryptonite was somehow in play.

Of course the writers would make some full retard way for the bat to win without kryptonite because he's THE GODDAMN BATMAN.

If it's anything like that POS Justice League: Flashpoint, count me out.

Superman and Batman will team-up

brought actor Harry Lennix, who co-starred in the Superman film, out to read a section of Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns"


I wouldn't really call Batman kicking Supe's ass a "team-up".

Superman and the Hulk cancel each other out. After that, JL has Batman, Flash and Green Lantern. They'd totally own the shiat out of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America.

Well, Flash and Green Lantern have a fighting chance at least. Batman gets his ass kicked by Captain America. He tries Iron Man or Thor, he's toast that much faster.

My thoughts are along these lines, also Wonderwoman would PWN the shiat out of Black widow for your token chick fight

Batman takes out Captain America
Flash takes out Iron Man
Green Lantern takes out Thor

problem with JL v. Avengers is Iron Man would just kryptonite Superman right off the bat since he's smart and does technology and stuff.  None of the Marvel lineup really have any weakness they can exploit and Superman is really the only heavy hitter JL has.

Popcorn Johnny: Batman takes out Captain America


In his wet dreams, maybe. In a fight, never.

Flash can't hurt Iron Man at all. He's fast, not super strong, and the IM armor deflects tank shells without damage. Also, computer aided targeting evens the score a good bit.

Green Lantern might hold off Thor for a while. Then Thor stops holding back.

Wonder Woman is much more a deciding factor, she can take most of the Avengers, except the Hulk.

Or Thor thinks Superman looks tough and throws Mjolnir at him. And through him. And gets super-gibs on his hand when Mjolnir returns.
 
2013-07-20 07:45:43 PM  
And I didn't even include Martian Manhunter, He'd own the rest of the Avengers on his own while Supes and Hulk were wrecking shiat. The rest of the JLA could chill and watch from the sidelines.

Another movie based on comic books. Must be profitable.

I strongly agree with this statement. I absolutely love the Nolan films and was there at the midnight showings for all 3. That said, and as you said, and as Nolan himself has said, there's no room for any other super-powered heroes in that universe.

My concern is the "let's do what Marvel's done" attitude. Thor turned out to be pretty fun. Captain America was ok. Iron Man was fun. They laid a great foundation. And they played it safe. I can't stress that enough. Then Zack Snyder comes along and I just picture WB or DC going, "Yeah we could play it safe, but let's push the boundaries. Let's get edgy." And then you end up with Supes snapping Zod's neck to save a single family while countless thousands DIAF.

Also WTF was Snyder doing having Harry Lennix read out a part of Frank Miller's book and then immediately backtrack by saying, "We're not adapting this comic book." Uh, OK. Is that the ONLY passage you could think of that involved the two of them in one scene? It's a film - they're not going to get along. They never have. But unless you're going to have them at each other's throats, maybe that's not the best material to give a shout-out to.

A big factor would be whether Aquaman is comic book Aquaman (like superman strong and  indistructable just control of sea creatures instead of heat vision and flight) or is he Justice Friends Aquaman where out of the water you or me could kick his ass.
 
2013-07-20 07:51:51 PM  
It always amuses me that DC can hit the nail on the head with their cartoons but can't even find the damn ballpark with the movies.  On the other hand, Batman: TAS ran for how many years and still spews out how much merchandise?  I think DC won overall in that game.

/I love the DC cartoons so much

Flash can move at light speed, how does Iron Man or any of his weapons get close to touching him?

It's already been established that Batman and Captain America are basically equal.

Flash hits Iron Man, is electrocuted and immobile. Iron Man then puts his lights out.

Or just runs some microthin cables across the battlefield and lets Flash become Flashbits.

Don't Wonder Woman and Ms. Marvel basically cancel out as well (or are we only using movie Avengers?)

Of course they're going to be at each others throats.  That's the point of putting them in comics together.

And I think they read that line because it's cool.  Zak Snyder likes things that are cool if you didn't notice.
