So Warner Brothers is trying to match the output of Marvel Studios, Sony, and Fox?  I guess the one good thing is Zack Snyder can't possibly direct them all... can he?

Every time I click on AICN, my IQ drops a point.  When they talk about the cesspool of internet commentary,
they should put up a picture of their logo as Example #1.

For anyone who thinks there are too many comic book movies and they need to go away, DC Entertainment is going to do their best to make sure people are sick of comic book movies and will no longer go to see any them,

So just wait a little while longer. DC will make sure the comic book movie trend dies within the next five years.

Why isn't Green Arrow listed for Justice League?  Put Stephen Amell in it.

serial_crusher: Why isn't Green Arrow listed for Justice League?  Put Stephen Amell in it.


I'd prefer separate TV/Movie universes, as much as I'd like to see GG and SA in the movies.  Thus far Arrow has been able to pretty much access anyone they want aside from the big JL members/villains, and I don't know if that will continue if they tie together.

Also, if they are combining and do the Suicide Squad movie, I would love to see Manu Bennett again.

InterruptingQuirk: Xmas 2016 - SANDMAN Don't screw it up


They will.  There's no possible way they can make a good film of Sandman.  Unless they're not using Gaiman's Sandman and making a movie about the 70s Sandman.  But we all know that's not happening.
 
2014-06-13 03:29:22 PM  
Oh lord - they are still thinking of doing Sandman.  That will be an unmitigated clusterfark, and will give me a mighty sads.
 
2014-06-13 03:29:36 PM  
Sandman will not do well with a big mainstream audience because it's not about action and adventure. It's about storytelling, the nature of forgiveness and vengence, and family bonds.   Sure, there's some action sequences therein, but it won't do well in movie format. Split it into miniseries, or even episodic TV, and it would do better.

Facetious_Speciest: Are they going to call their Captain Marvel movie...SHAZAM? That seems...eh...


Marvel owns the rights to the name Captain Marvel due to Captain Mar-vel.  DC cannot use the name Captain Marvel in the title of any of their media.  I think Captain Marvel's main series has been called The Power of Shazam! or some such nonsense for quite some time.  If It's even still an ongoing series.  I have no farking clue

He's been officially renamed as Shazam now, and no longer goes by Captain Marvel.

So are we getting a dark and gritty version of an orphan who magically turns into an amalgam of the pantheon?  And why him before Wonder Woman, Manhunter, Flash, Lantern, Aquaman, Hawkgirl, or even The Question
 
2014-06-13 03:39:22 PM  
He'll always be Captain Marvel to me!

Seriously, though...Shazam...eh. It just seems really hokey, for a movie. I mean, the premise is kinda silly to begin with, but I don't get the impression they're into making "fun" movies so much as trying to get their serious on.

Because Wonder Woman is in BvS and probably can't film both movies at once?

All the Sandmen are connected, so the best movie possibility is clearly original Sandman and the sandman after him. Wesley Dodds is a reasonably important character because Dream gives him dreams, right? It might be kind of cool - a straight forward action passing-the-torch movie with a universe bending supernatural element behind it.

Ryan Reynolds is "100% done" as Green Lantern?

Nice move, DC. Blame the actor rather than the shiatshow of overly simple script/story and sorta-crappy CGI. Unless it was his choice; though I think he's said he'd play whoever Marvel/DC/Sony/Fox asked him to (*AHEM*Deadpool*AHEM*).

shiat can the entire existing development and creative teams and start over with a new continuity , with Bruce Timm as head of creative and Paul Dini in charge or the writing teams and stop hiring flashy big name directors who couldn't plot their way out of a wet paper bag with a functioning chainsaw.

I understand practicality of it, but a Shazam movie will likely be a rehash of a Superman movie because he is aside from his backstory a similar power set.  Mostly that was a complaint about deserving the next and not just having another super strong flying guy punching people through buildings.  Flash or Lantern would at least introduce the possibility to do something different with their powers.

/Justice League introduces Aquaman as a villain threatening to destroy humanity for the trespasses against the ocean and then teams up to face a greater threat in Darkside.  Calling it.

Pretty sure if they are making a new continuity they can't have him play GL again. Which that statement is kinda officially saying.

I would personally love the shiat out of that, but it's the same problem as Marvel's Age of Apocalypse...lots of buildup (in character background, if nothing else) that you really kinda need to get the full impact.

I wonder if fundies would love it or hate it. Hrm.
 
2014-06-13 04:00:37 PM  
So in 18 months from May 2016 to X-mas 2017 they are releasing 6 movies.   They are trying to get to the Marvel levels without building up and just throwing money at it.   Any one of those titles fall down it brings down the entire house of cards.     I love super hero movies but they will burn out the genre by 2018.

I really hope they don't do a dark and gritty SHAZAM!. The whole Captain Marvel concept is based on the ultimate wish fulfillment fantasy and Billy Batson being an eternal optimist. He doesn't brood, mostly because he's a 10 year kid with the power of Superman.

TFA says the next Lantern movie is Lantern/Flash. They're either going to need to do TWO origin stories in the same film, or else borrow TV Flash's stuff (I suspect this is the case) and re-do GL's origin.

Which is stupid - what part of RR's GL needs to be jettisoned? Set it 5 years after the first, and everyone from the first has moved on. Or have RR start as GL, then pass the ring on to John Stewart (be funny if Jon Stewart actually played this role, but I think he's too short and old).

// I'd have liked to see Sinestro's fall, but I think that would have needed a second film (not well-read on paper comics)

Current Shazam isn't a super optimist anymore. He convinced the wizard to choose him because finding the perfect candidate would take forever, since everyone is screwed up in some way.
