Justice League - DC and Warner Bros' superpowered team-up movie


We’ll agree to disagree there. Arrow just had its best season, and The Flash and Supergirl were very good. I haven’t had a chance to watch Legends yet but that also looked great.

And for Jason, I think it’s fine that they don’t linger on what happens in the films. These heroes/villains exist in their own day to day lives same as they did in the books. Daredevil wasn’t globe hopping. He was dealing with the Kingpin in Hell’s Kitchen. The Punisher was street level justice dealing. Luke Cage and Iron Fist also stayed confined to their turf. It’s like I have said about Spider-Man… he always had his own problems but occasionally he’d be caught up in something bigger, and that was ok! That’s what they got right in Homecoming and it actually makes it easier for Sony to do their thing. Comics have always been a big of a walled garden all to themselves in each book.


Legends MASSIVELY improved, about the same amount that Arrow did from the season before.


I’m also chronically behind because I only watch these things on Netflix. So Arrow and Flash may in fact have improved. Legends I made it I think ten minutes into before lol nope.


Yeah, I have it all on the DVR still. I’ve been waiting til my kids are back from summer break for us to binge it. Reverse Flash alone makes it a must watch for us. I like the team, though. Looking forward to it!!

I’ve really enjoyed Supergirl Season 2 because they always go no-holds barred on the Super mayhem and anytime there’s Martian Manhunter action, I’m all for it. The guy they cast as Superman is perfect, too.


Season 1 wasn’t very good. It got somewhat better about halfway through but really took off with Season 2; they went with a much more tongue-in-cheek feel, and the actors/characters/writers really meshed well with that approach. Probably wound up being my favorite show of the last cycle of WB/DC series despite it being my least favorite from the season before.


Season one of Legends is the worst single season of any of the CW superhero shows. Season two of legends is probably somewhere in the top 1/3 for all CW superhero seasons. It was by far the biggest year to year improvement any of their shows have ever had, although Arrow and Flash have both had ups and downs, so year to year I don’t have any idea how to predict what trends will continue.


Yeah, S2 of Legends is good enough to slog through S1. Well, that and Rory.


Good God.


Yep; he’s not wrong. But as Armando says, it’s worth the payoff.


Joe Morton, who plays Cyborg’s dad in the movie, confirmed that the reshoots “lighten up” the mood of the film.

Well, the stuff that I had to do were just really small little bits and pieces, nothing necessarily having to do with tone. I know that with Ray [Fisher], the young man who plays Victor, there were some adjustments that they made in terms of the tone of that character. I think what I heard was that there was a need from the studio to lighten up the film in a way, that the film felt too dark.


Wait, isn’t Joe Morton a bit, well, old to be playing Cyborg? Or is there some other Joe Morton out there?


Sorry. He plays Cyborg’s father.


In a new profile by Vulture’s Abraham Riesman, executives confirmed what The Hollywood Reporter previously reported, that there will both be a new label focusing on standalone movies (such as the Joker) that are completely unconnected from its larger universe. And other films that are part of the shared universe won’t focus as heavily on the continuity as past movies like Batman v Superman.

“Our intention, certainly, moving forward is using the continuity to help make sure nothing is diverging in a way that doesn’t make sense, but there’s no insistence upon an overall story line or interconnectivity in that universe,” said DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson. She added: "Moving forward, you’ll see the DC movie universe being a universe, but one that comes from the heart of the filmmaker who’s creating them.”

The article offers no speculation about Affleck/Batman, but for anyone in the camp who believes he’s never suiting up again, this certainly paves the way for that kind of announcement.


“This shit is too hard and Disney/Marvel is kicking our asses at it, so we’re just going to shit out whatever comes to mind and hope we turn a profit.”

“Remember Wonder Woman? Wonder Woman was good, right?”


“Hey, let’s make it like comic books.”


I’d kill for a Superman: Red Son movie.

Ah, who am I kidding, they’d fuck it up anyway.


If they did Red Son now they’d set it in China and make it sympathetic somehow to get Chinese audiences. Alibaba pictures would finance.


What a mess.



Looks pretty good. The Flash’s quips are amusing.
