The DC Movies Thread v JUSTICE
« on: March 25, 2015, 05:53:16 PM »
Did anyone see the photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor?!?!



 :tup


I know this for the movies, but we don't have a general movie thread anymore (should I start a DC Cinematic Universe thread?). However, damn does he look the part. I hope they'll get him in the war suit for either Justice League part 1 or 2

I love they picked him for Lex. 

Rich,  I guess I need to be careful what I say.

Yes you should, and in fact I did it for you. :D While DC is starting to merge its films and starting to merge its TV shows, it seems they're keeping both media completely separate, so separate threads makes sense.

Sweet!

I love all sorts of comic book characters, but i guess I *love* DC characters more than I do Marvel characters. Batman is my favorite character ever - in comic books, tv, or film. So that all being said, I'm very excited that DC is finally ramping up their own cinematic universe where we will finally have Batman and Superman together.  As Marvel has turned their superheroes into an ever-growing Cinematic Universe, DC and Warner Bros. have played a much slower game and had to wait until Christopher Nolan to finish his fantastic Batman trilogy to start making plans.

I also like that DC is not copying the Marvel formula, and I feel like I'm one of the few that feel like DC doesn't need to rush to "catch up" with the Marvel Universe. I love DC and I love Marvel, they offer slightly different approach’s but that is only a good thing.
The thing I'm more concerned about are the end results of the movies, which is why I danced for joy when I heard production for Batman V Superman was being pushed back. It gives Warner Bros more time to make a quality film. So far, I like everything that has happened for this movie.


So far, here's the official schedule for the DC Universe

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice - March 25th, 2016
Suicide Squad - August 5th, 2016
Wonder Woman - June 23, 2017,
Justice League: Part 1 - November 17, 2017
The Flash - March 23rd, 2018
Aquaman - August 12, 2018
Shazam - April 5, 2019
Justice League: Part 2 - June 14, 2019
Cyborg - April 3, 2020
Green Lantern - June 19, 2020

I don't feel that they need to rush, but it kind of feels like they are with having so many characters appear in BvS.

I hope for the best, but I remain cautious.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

You are only one of many with that opinion, believe me.

I did like Man of Steel, and am looking forward to BvS. Not as much as I do Age of Ultron, but now that I think about it, more than the first Avengers movie.

Bummer. Michelle MacLaren is dropping out from directing Wonder Woman. She's a crazy talented director, and she directed some of the best episodes of Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones.

But a few articles I've read on this have mentioned that Joss Whedon is a HUGE Wonder Woman fan, and he tried to get something off the ground right around the time Batman Begins hit theaters. Whedon said he's done making Marvel movies, soooo.....

I think Whedon is done with doing superhero films for a while. He's been talking over and over about how he wants to make something original, and Avengers 2 almost crushed him with all the hard work involved.

This. He loves creating his own characters and settings, and hasn't been able to do that while working on Avengers movies.

No he didn't.  He said he is tired and exhausted from making films as big as the Avengers films, and can't direct another one like that.

He also said he wouldn't be surprised if he winds up contributing something to the next two Avengers films, just not in a directing capacity.

I would imagine that the next film or two that he makes will be something original (he said he misses that terribly), but I wouldn't be shocked to see him eventually direct for Marvel again.

My bad. I interpreted it wrong. It would be great to see him do original stuff again!

I really like what I'm seeing with this trailer. The whole "False God" graffiti on the Superman statue really perked me up! This looks to have resulted from the mass destruction Kal-El was unwittingly complicit with, the VERY THING the Man of Steel haters hated most, and looks to have pulled off a story of overcoming adversity - putting the most powerful superhero through the gauntlet of public disdain, new and potent enemies.

Thoughts?

I for one LOVE it!  Definitely an original take, not derivative of any others (namely Ledger or Nicholson), but definitely outwardly expresses the crazy.

Hell, this film looks like it will be better than Batman v. Superman.

Yeah I like it too. The tats are really cool, and he does look appropriately crazy.

I am trying my best not to compare it to Ledger's Joker, but it's difficult. But as a completely new take on the character, I'm happy with how it looks, and I hope Leto's portrayal of him will be great.

I'm torn. I really hate the face tattoos but am alright with the rest of the tattoos, although the Joker doesn't seem like one to sit still long enough for tattoos, nor does he seem like the type of guy to go get tattoos from somebody. Would have been cooler in my opinion if the tattoos looked like they were self done, messier, etc.

Other than that, I like it, but the grills puzzle me as well, I'm okay with them now but they're kinda weird for the Joker.

This. He loves creating his own characters and settings, and hasn't been able to do that while working on Avengers movies.

Well if Avengers 2 is as big as the first one ( 3rd highest grossing film of all time ) - he should get carte blanche from studios and might finally do something original that isn't a flop or cancelled by the network !  :biggrin:

But yeah -just put " FROM THE DIRECTOR OF THE AVENGERS " on the poster and you're good to go.

Stories going around about the slipshod way that DC is apparently formulating their shared universe.  Can't say I'm shocked.

Of course, it's unsubstantiated rumor, too.  So we'll see.

Well, the fact that they had to fire their Wonder Woman director just a few months after appointing her sends warning signals. It's like they didn't have a meeting with her before, and went over what they wanted with Wonder Woman, what she wanted and if their visions would be possible to fuse together. In just a few months it went from "this is our director, she is the right choice" to "we couldn't agree on anything" (which apparently was the case).

Had to google what 'slipshod' means, but yes, I agree. It's the feeling I've had since the very start.

I did too, but I was hoping I would be wrong.  And again, these are just rumors, but it's not a good sign.  They need their own Kevin Feige over there.

It kind of sucks.  When I was growing up, I read and loved the DC comics just as much as the Marvel comics.  I want both to succeed in film.

Agreed. After speaking to a few comic readers I have some insight into the potential DC have in their stuff, it would sadden me greatly to see them rush this just because Marvel got a head start.

So true.


Now DC has an opportunity to take lessons from past failures/success and even Marvel, not to copy, but create a unique DC Universe.  I'm hoping it all comes together well.
