Fun Fact. It was Superhero theme day at work and I found a MARVEL T shirt for 3 in a charity shop. Better than wearing my uniform for a day!

But one guy arrived in the full batman outfit. And he had NO IDEA who Bruce Wayne was and has never seen a batman film or TV episode in his life.

:lolpalm: How do you never see at least one Batman film? Or not know who Bruce Wayne is ?!

Are you sure he wasn't just pretending to be Batman so hard that he denied he was Bruce Wayne?  :lol

Batman v. Superman > Iron Man 2
I mean, I guess someone had to feel that way.

Growing up, I definitely liked the characters of Batman and Superman better than Iron Man.  But I thought Batman v Superman was complete trash.  I cannot fathom liking any Marvel film less than that.

Have you had a chance to see the Snyder cut of Justice League?

Not yet. 


It's weird; I was absolutely a DC kid growing up.  I subscribed to Green Lantern, Flash and Brave And The Bold.  I generally don't care for the presentation of the DC characters in the movies; they always seemed to be too rooted in the '30s (naive), or the '60s (camp) which isn't the period I really liked (I liked that '70s/'80's vibe).    I much prefer the MCU in total even though Dr. Strange (in retrospect) and Fantastic Four (to which I subscribed as well) are the only ones I paid attention to in real time.

But having said that, I liked Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill as Batman/Superman, and while the movie had problems (I still don't get that whole desert scene) I thought there were high points that made it a very enjoyable film for me.   I LIKE that sort of "miserable" Batman, that sort of almost-on-the-spectrum dedication of Batman to his obsession.   And it's specifically against IM2; I'm not a Gwyneth Paltrow fan, so when she's on screen, I yawn, and while I like Mickey Rourke a LOT, he was an odd one and done in this film.

Maybe he was just a fan of Only Fools and Horses.

I also liked the 70s/80s era of DC.  I loved Brave & The Bold!  Recently at a con here in Raleigh, I tracked down a couple of DC Blue Ribbon Digests.  Do you remember those?

I also like Affleck as Batman and Cavill as Supes.  Probably my favorite actors in those roles.  But I still hated that movie.  Snyder treated all of those characters and ideas with very little respect.  However, I admit that the Snyder Cut of JL is better than the theatrical release (although still not as good a film as, say, Wonder Woman).
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I do remember!  I might even have a couple downstairs (though sadly most of my comics are not in good condition).

I always loved the Blue Ribbon Digest - Year's Best Comic Stories editions, which would collect the 10 most acclaimed single issue DC stories of the year.  They did that from I guess the mid 70s to the early 80s.  Great stuff.

What, what's going on?  Sorry, I fell asleep when someone said "DC."

Sorry, boss.

Until J. Jonah Jameson proclaims the virtues of Spider-Man, MAKE MINE MARVEL!  'Nuff Said.

It's ok, the DC conversation will go away by tomorrow when we have some new stuff to talk about.

Growing up in the 90s, I did enjoyed DC stuff more than Marvel back then. At least comics and cartoons.

I read a quote recently from Kevin Feige where he basically said they're going to slowly build up again to the big "New Avengers" movie...

Which is great. I was worried they'd try to do a DC and introduce maybe one or two new characters then do the ensemble immediately.

Plus they probably saw that didn't work at all for DC.

Well, even if they tried that, they would make it work better than DC.

Four new dates for MCU films in 2024 have been announced, leaving us with 7 untitled MCU films from the rest of 2023 and all of 2024.

July 28th, 2023
October 6th, 2023
November 10th, 2023
February 16th, 2024
May 3rd, 2024
July 26th, 2024
November 8th, 2024

So far, there are 5 films without release dates yet - Blade, Fantastic Four, Deadpool 3, Captain America 4, and a Mutant-centric film. I suspect 2024 will see a Shang-Chi sequel, and the seventh film will be a team-uo/crossover film, probably the May 2024 release date.

The film on November 8th 2024 will be the 40th MCU film, in under 17 years.

-Marc.

Oh this looks GOOD. And Hailee Steinfeld is going to be fantastic! I'm enjoying their dynamic in just this trailer alone! The part that has me most curious is ROGERS the Musical. :lol

I really dig the tone. Has kind of an 80's/90's buddy cop vibe.
