    DC must be getting desperate. Notice the key quote here.

    A Man of Steel sequel is going into active development at Warner Bros., a source close to the production has informed The Wrap. While the studio did not return calls for clarification, The Wrap is reporting that a solo Superman movie is a "top priority" for Warner, and that restoring the character's reputation -- and getting him right this time -- is of "tantamount importance" to the DCEU, as a whole.


    Its not that hard to get the character right but these bozos tried to make him complex and dark and hired a shitty actor to play him. Get the character right and have him smiling and happy and saving cats from trees like hes supposed to.

    They can roll with it that his being brought back to life can give him a different attitude.

    "Man of Steel" was exactly the movie everyone claimed they wanted. I heard them talking for years, you know, all those faggots who thought that the Christopher Reeve movies were "too corny". They wanted a darker Superman with better action scenes and villains with teeth. Well, that's what they got. Now, they want to get the character right, again. What do these fucking assholes want? Maybe Supes is just an antiquated character that doesn't play well on the big screen to today's audiences?

    I watched Batman Vs Superman on blu ray the other night. I wasn't bored at all for the 3 hour cut. Maybe lowered expectations from what others had said about it. I'd rather they speed up a solo Batman film.

    The Krypton opening of Man of Steel was good but the rest was hokey and standard comic fair (45 minute fight in the city is way overdone).

    I like Henry Cavill as an actor. He was fantastic in last year's Man from UNCLE.

    I watched the 3 hour cut last night. Jesus H. Christ was that boring. I don't have a problem with Affleck, he pulled it off. Wonder Woman was decent. But Superman and Lois have to go. Shit casting.

    It's not really shit casting for Supes. They just need to make him very heroic, inspirational and positive. Cavill has a nice smile, let him use it. (no homo)

    Maybe play up his farmboy charm more. Get rid of the fucking dark costume for starters. Which costume conveys a more positive, less gritty Superman?

    Nerds versus normal people
    I watched superman and it was pretty good in my book especially the Russell Crowe stuff
    And Batman versus Superman wasn't bad either, slow in parts a little too big but pretty good

    I love guys who go
    They fucked up on his cape
    They messed the whole look of Wonder Woman up she has shorter hair
    The bat mobile has five wheels they shit the bed on that

    Who cares they are pretty good movies and for the most part all these comic book movies are all the same and starting to suck so who cares

    I didn't care when superman died because NONE of these fucking guys die so you k ow he isn't dead.

    The people at DC must hate America or something. Leave us alone already, we don't need any more comic movies. Marvel has it covered. It's fine, we're good.

    no, the latest Marvel-Disney are the best ones - Antman, Guardians, last Captain, Deadpool......those movies are clever. This DC stuff looks terrible to me. Everything outside of the Disney-Marvel thing is pretty much terrible besides Bale Batman. There's no comparison.

    Once again DC is taking the wrong approach. Instead of trying to "catch" Marvel, they need to slow the fuck down, take a deep breath and spend some time developing these things. Suicide Squad was rushed to make its release date. Christopher Nolan was never rushed into a sequel. He did entire films in between Batman movies. DC is like the gang that can't shoot straight.

    Pretty much. DC looks like the kid brother trying to imitate their big brother, but failing badly.

    It's funny how important the directing of a trailer is these days. More important than the actual movie. Everyone fell in love with Suicide Squad from that girl's hypnotic ass, a Will Smith role and "this movie has The Joker!".


    Now the cat's out of the bag, everyone knows this DC thing is shaky. The trailers for Wonder Woman and Justice League look awful to me. If you can't polish a turd enough to make a good trailer then it must be REALLY bad. Every appearance of Aquaman is cringe-worthy. Seriously WTF with this crap.

    I and II were great....they practically killed him with III, though, and IV I don't even acknowledge IV.
