    You know... In a very weird and twisted way, it actually makes sense.

    Well... it's definitely NOT going to be boring, that's for sure.

    Mel Gibson to helm Suicide Squad 2? OK, I'm in. Just as long as he doesn't cast Vince Vaughn in a role. That guy sucks.

    So did anyone see The Lego Batman Movie?

    I thought it was great, but as funny as some were making out to be. But when it hits its jokes, I was laughing.

    Funny, I find it funny that some "fans" pretty much missed the point and feel of the movie and are being a bit over dramatic about the movie.

    Also, I love how they acknowledge Batman's entire history from comics and movies, they even mention that he is 90 years old or something like that. Fun movie. Check it out.

    Yeah at this point I'd be happy if they outright scrapped the live action movies and went ahead with an entire Legoverse series.

    I wish I was kidding.

    Mel Gibson is such a delightfully awesome/weird choice for Suicide Squad. He confirmed he's been talking with DC (!!)

    Even if he doesn't do it, I'm really tickled by the fact that he's in talks at all.

    Anyone else see Hacksaw Ridge? It really moved me. Grateful I was able to see it in theaters because the sound was incredible and it wasn't even an IMAX film really hoping it takes home the Sound Mixing oscar. A lot of the movie can be melodramatic (especially the hometown pre-Boot Camp/pre-War stuff), but fuck... when the characters arrive in Japan it is unrelenting. Visceral, visceral stuff that hits you like a tidal wave. So, if nothing else, I think Mel could bring his outstanding action sensibility to Squad... especially if they make the sequel R-rated (doubtful).

    Matt Reeves backed out today.

    I just read, this movie isn't getting made. I guess I'm happy that we at least got a justice league movie.

    Well negotiations are at a halt right now, apparently he never said he was doing it. So it could be a tactic on his end or he just doesn't want to do it. I don't care anymore at this point. I'm looking forward to the heroes that never had a movie before so I'm good. Just gotta get flash off the ground.

    I also read Ben Affleck doesn't even want to play Batman anymore.

    Can we just screw it to the current DC universe iteration of Batman and throw insane amount of money at Nolan to continue his Batman-verse? I would much prefer to see that to be completely honest. I think Nolan could bring us something great that could incorporate The Penguin and The Riddler.

    FFS.

    Here's an idea: maybe we've seen enough of Batman and of Superman already. We've been seeing them for freaking decades now. No wonder they don't know what to do with them anymore.

    Just give us Wonder Woman, Aquaman and The Flash already!

    Agreed. (Although I do have a bias towards Batman; I'm always OK with more of him. There are so many villains and stories we haven't seen done right yet. Anyway..)

    These new characters (new to modern film) are what DC needs right now. Fresh blood and new characters on screen. Let's just hope they're executed better than Suicide Squad..

    Would love that in a way, but we all know there's zero chance of that happening. DC/Warner already feels like they're sticking their neck out with the WW movie. If that flops you can forget anything bolder coming from them.

    As much as I want a man of steel sequel and another batman movie, I have to agree with this.

    Aquaman is moving production along and Wonder Woman has still yet to release. Again I think WB should say fuck a cinematic universe marvel style and just give us one offs. Maybe another justice league movie to throw darkseid in the mix but that's it. I really think there is no need for a batman movie anymore.

    Talk about a turnaround. Matt Reeves has officially signed on to direct, and Affleck is still onboard.

    Yup, was about to post that. Good. Now can the media just step back away from affleck and reeves about batman? No?

    WB should have kept this secret till Reeves was done with press for war of the planet of the apes.

    It's going to be better than good. It's going to be AWESOME! Give it to me now, damn it.

    Naysayers and Debbie Downers, I am not listening to you. Wonder Woman will slay all of you.

    Looks good. Still not sold on the casting choice, highly unsure if my opinion will change about that.

    The sand in that thumbnail must be freakishly hard since neither her metal booted legs nor her sword are sinking into it at all

    Eh, I'm not really saying anything about the movie itself, just the graphic design choices for that poster. That said I don't think this'll be amazing but I also think it'll be the first "average" movie in this franchise and will get a warmer reception than Man of Steel did. I'd love to be proven wrong and to see it kick ass, though.

    lol, I know.

    Something from the latest trailer that has been bugging me since the first one: When his plane crashes, she's looking out over the cliff, right? The plane tracks to the left of her, but she continues to stare straight ahead. It's a weird thing that bugs me for some reason. Maybe because it gotta be easy to fix, maybe because it's such a small niggle that a multi-million dollar film should just have it right in the first place?

    What happens if any of the actors smile in these movies? Does the studio kill their firstborn?

    At least Batfleck got his classic Animated Series smirk once.

    It says a lot about their concern around the image of this movie and universe that they're trying so hard to generate excitement with all of these utterly lame posters and teasers all of a sudden. They still haven't convinced me Wonder Woman won't suck so they have a long way to go before selling me on Justice League. They cut a great trailer, but that doesn't mean anything anymore about the movie itself when it comes to this franchise.

    If I had to gamble on it, I'd bet WW will be at least decent. I really want it to be, at least.
