    *yawns* Well golly gee I think they show a bit too much of the good scenes for my tastes!
    I was legitimately asking a question and not being sarcastic.

    Well, if Joaquin Phoenix is maintaining the same quality of work we see in this trailer into the whole movie, he may pull a Heath Ledger. And I am not saying this lightly.

    I am definitely entertained.

    Looks awesome. I haven't seen any of the DC movies, which looked shitty, but I really want to see this.

    the reviews calling him an incel have me worried, but there are almost as many saying it's brilliant. I guess it'll turn out to be whatever your personal lens is.

    Perhaps check out this article.

    tl;dr: it's a movie that perhaps reflects the era it's being released in, and that's nothing new...and if incel losers want to attach themselves to it, it's not the movie's fault (see: people that still whine about video games causing violence in the year 2019).

    I watched the first two episodes of Swamp Thing and I love it. It's really a pity it has been cancelled for some stupid money reasons.

    I also watched the first episode of Pennyworth. I rolled my eyes at having Thomas Wayne introduced in the first 10 minutes of the episode and the mention that Alfred could become a butler before he is 40. Guys, we know who Alfred Pennyworth is, duh. But it's still interesting to see what he did before becoming the man who would raised Bruce. I like the PTSD like signs from his time during the war. I like that he's trying to do things for himself. Lets see where this goes.

    I can't wait for Batwoman though. Ruby Rose is going to kill it in the role.

    I am not a fan of shows the revolve main heroís universe but doesnít involve them. Someone told me if you pretend that the show is not about Alfred, itís a pretty decent James Bond knock off.

    Titans season 2 premiers, with season 1ís season finale lol. I donít understand the decision to start it off that way, and the episode for me personally had less impact to conclude the whole trigon storyline, but the last 15 minutes of that episode were glorious. Looking forward to season 2 actually starting.

    And how they ended Swamp Thing, with a cliff hanger, gives them an opening to make a second season if they choose to. There was a point where Doom Patrol( the best show on the app on the service in my opinion) wasnít getting a season renew announcement. But eventually that was revealed.

    It's funny it's called "The Suicide Squad" is prefixing "The" proper sequelling now?

    Also I do think James Gunn has a reasonable chance of making a good movie here but the first one is one of the worst movies ever made, like studiable for decades bad

    Also, because Guardians of the Galaxy is already a movie, it seems like striking too close to that is pointless and boring?

    I didnít like the movie neither, but I think that is a bit extreme.

    Suicide Squad debuted in 1959, Guardians of the Galaxy in 1969. While Marvel does have a track record of copying DC's material, I don't think they're all that similar in this case, aside from the fact that they're both comedic team-based stories. Suicide Squad has always been about a rotating roster of Z-list baddies being forced at gunpoint to do good things (and most of them die in the process), whereas GOG has a few core team members who generally stay alive despite the odds.

    It's such a pity that DC's film record is so bad. They have good IP, it's just that they don't seem to care who translates it to the silver screen. Hopefully this new wave of movies will change that.

    You can find many examples of me using hyperbole and superlative on ETS, but I wasn't really exaggerating here..

    That movie is a disaster, to a fascinating degree and maybe in that sense it isn't all that bad. But somehow it's fascinating badness eventually gives way to the worst thing any movie can be, which is boring.

    Combining a corner case of so-bad-its-good but only forensically with too-boring-to-watch is a unique thing

    It sucks for sure. But it was another movie butchered by studio heads. Ayer has come out and said whAt was on screen was not his original vision.

    Yes. I am going to go a bit further and say DC keeps telling the same few stories over and over again and, while I love Superman, Batman etc...I am kind of bored of seeing the same stories being told in different ways instead of telling new stories on the big screen. I hate that DC abandoned (did they really abandon it?) the Justice League stuff and basically all these characters and movies being in the same universe.

    While I don't think every Marvel movie has been good (sure a few just average, perhaps meh ones) what I have grown to love about Marvel are the many different stories that have been and are being and will be told. I wish that would not deter DC from telling new stories in the film world but... ugh.
