I'm a script doctor, and WB recently hired me and three others who coordinate the scripts for their upcoming superhero movies, working with the assigned scriptwriters to create a cohesive tone and order of events, because one of their aspirations to differentiate themselves from Marvel Studios is to, rather than doing "Phases", have one ovearching storyline that spills into multiple movies, with the events of one reflecting on the other.

If you have any questions, I'll be here for a while.

BTW, I have also done gigs for Marvel and they're totally getting Spider-Man back. They even have an actor in mind.
>>
Do the scripts suck?

>>66505298

I think you're lying, grandpa.
>>
>>66505317
They're alright. Some are better than others. But overall, the stories are good. Let's hope the directors and cast don't fuck it up.
>>
are they origin stories or do they go right into the fun parts?
>>
>>66505395
No origin stories. That's actually one of the mandates. Their origins are referred or shown in brief flashbacks.

Jack O'Connell. They're really impressed with his work.

Not Topher Grace? :-/

>>66505540
I think it's that Batman v Superman deals with Superman damaging metropolis greatly, the following movie will probably deal with events that happened in Batman v Superman and so on.
>>
Do they know who their GL will be?
>>
>>66505597
That's what makes it funny, he snaps Joker's neck but he isn't able to kill him like everyone else so he has to make a team of professional neck-snappers.
>>
OP, please get professional help. You might think this is just harmless "fun", but sudden narcisistic behavior can actually be one of the first signs of an aggressive brain tumor.

I am mainly interested in the wonder woman movie.

Will we be getting a movie based on her exploits as a peacekeeper between the gods and man or a bridge between the gods and mortals?
>>
>>66505616
Topher Grace only wants to play Eddie. It's why Raimi couldn't get him for Spider-Man.

Which is tragic, because Topher can't do Eddie Brock, but he would have been an awesome choice for Peter.

Have you seen the rumors posted about the JL movie featuring Braniac and GL coming to Earth warning about Darkseid, amongst others? Can you confirm, deny or elaborate on any of them?

Will DC use post-credits stingers?

Has Hardy or Smith finalized their deals for Suicide Squad? Who are they looking to play?

Is there any word on who WB is eyeing for Braniac, Shazam or Green Lantern?

Will Harley be in Suicide Squad?

>>66505540
For example, the events of "Dawn of Justice" and "Justice League" lead to the world finding out about Atlantis and its advanced military weaponry. This leads directly to "Aquaman", which is pretty much a political thriller about Aquaman trying to prevent a looming war between Atlantis and the surface and a plot to overthrow him.

Speaking of which, Black Manta is in the script, and he's fucking spot-on.

Brainiac in "Justice League".

Darkseid in "Justice League 2".

>>66505640
Hal Jordan will be in the "Justice League" movies, but John Stewart will be his partner in the solo-movie, and might appear in further "Justice League" sequels down the line.

>>66505700
Her role as an ambassador is not very prominent so far. They want to sinergize with the New 52 as much as possible, and are drawing inspiration from Brian Azzarello's work for the movie.

>>66505924
I can confirm. I'll elaborate later.

No.

Not finalized, but very likely. Smith was offered Deadshot, but he's now in talks for Rick Flagg, who is one of the three male leads. Hardy has offered Boomerang, and that's the role he's nearly signing for.

Benedict Cumberbatch interests them for Brainiac. Popular, interesting features and voice, and already has ties with the studio from his work on "The Hobbit". But they're still scouting.

For Green Lantern, I've heard a bunch of names ranging from Chris Pine, Zac Effron, Jake Gyllenhall, Jared Leto, Jack Huston... They're still figuring out quite how young they want Jordan to be. I hear Gyllenhall is at the top of their list now that he's getting Oscar buzz for "Nightcrawler".

>>66506062
No backstory or name given. He's just presented as a professional assassin hired to sabotage a peace treaty between Atlantis and the surface. As the movie progresses, he becomes more and more obsessed with killing Aquaman.

Pardon my /tv/, but they want a big guy to measure up to Jason Momoa. Two names that are pretty popular with the writers, but I have no idea if the studio is acknowledging or interested in, are Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Djimon Hounsou.

>>66506174
Robin is in it, but Jena Malone isn't playing that role. She's Oracle.

Either you've done your research, OP, or you're telling the truth.

A few more questions, then.

Is WB sdlf-aware, or is this talk of dark and gritty what the execs believe actually sell tickets?

What's their take on the Flash? I've heard deep and personal, which is probably what they're going for, right?

>>66505897
Batman is a veteran vigilante, who's been active for five years when Superman appears. He's much more brutal than other versions, particularly because of Robin's death. He believes Superman represents a threat and that's the driving force of their conflict.

Wonder Woman is an ambassador of Themyscira in Men's World. Not much is revealed about her in "Dawn of Justice", other than she has come to find Superman and her mission is to protect the humans.

Aquaman is the ruler of Atlantis. Not much is revealed about in "Dawn of Justice" either. He's half-human, half-Atlantean, and is sworn to protect the surface despite the objections of his subjects.

The Flash is Barry Allen, and the accident that created him is connected to the World Engine, which is the source of several problems and abilities throughout the movies. He has elements of Wally West's personality, he's the resident jokester, comic relief and the youngest member of the team, the guy that's really breaking into the superhero business.

Cyborg is created by LexCorp as part of a robotics program that also includes Lex Luthor and Metallo, which has more sinister purposes than it appears. He becomes a pivotal character for the team-up because of a certain ability he has. As expect, he'll be the dramatic crux, because of "MUH HUMANITY".

Jordan is stil in an earlier stage of development, but they want him to be charming. That's a word that's thrown around a lot. They want him to a fun, witty guy.

>>66505758

>>66506259
Both. The Trench is also involved.

>>66506387
He's the Flash.

>>66506395
Marvel wants Spider-Man for a while, but they don't need him. They offered Sony a deal for a joint venture, but Sony refused, because they had a lot riding on "The Amazing Spider-Man 2". The movie wasn't a flop, but it wasn't critically well-received either, and it didn't make enough money for its costs, especially in light the studio's dwindling resources. So they went back on the deal.

Basically, Spider-Man will join the MCU, in a clean slate, a reboot. But Sony will get a cut of the profits of the movies he's in, including certain distribution rights.

>>66506452
They want to be different from Marvel, so they're going for a grittier feel. It's a mandate these movies should take itself seriously. They can have humor, that "no jokes" policy rumor is bullshit, but it'll never be like, say, "The Avengers" or "Guardians of the Galaxy".

Yep, deep and personal, exploring a lot of what superspeed does to your body and mind.

Robin is dead. They never say who he was, though. So he could've been Dick, Jason or even Tim. But he's the only Robin that Batman has had so far.

>>66506630
Yeah.

>>66506662
I really liked what Johns did to Green Lantern, and the Flash had a solid run with Johns and then Manapul. So I'm pretty excited to be part of the project.
>>
>>66506727
Not him but it would make sense if they want the films to align with the New 52?

can you give us any information about Shazam?

From what I remember they passed him over for Spidey 1 in favour of Maguire, but he was considered, then they called him back to be the mirror-type Eddie because they saw him as similar to the Pete they wrote.
Also when Spidey 1 was made That 70s show was pretty big. When Spidey 3 came by, it was already stale and he jumped ship.

The emotional buiildup really isn't the same for the spectator if he's just mentionned off-hand before being a villain instead of being actually seen as Robin.
>>
>>66506787
Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Cyborg all have their codenames one way or another. Arthur doesn't want one, he believes them to be dismissive. Barry keeps trying to make Aquaman happen throughout "Justice League", as a running gag.

Arthur warms up to it by the end.

Flash and Aquaman in this are what Flash and Green Lantern were in the cartoons.
>>
>>66507003
He said something positive about islam, so he's a terrorist XD

That way they'll have robin in a movie without having robin in a movie. Also they can reuse under the red hood. This move would be far to sensible, WB will never go for it.

We're in the Spitballing Stage, where he just throw names around, and the studio considers whether they're interested or not. For Mera, I've heard Emily Blunt, Olga Kurylenko, Gemma Arterton and Jessica Chastain.

>>66506773
Drawns inspiration from "The Curse of Shazam". Dr. Sivana is in it, and Black Adam, despite being the antagonist, has shades of grey as he is often portrayed to be. Given it is produced by New Line, ir sort of exists outside of the more grittier world that's being built by WB. It's a more cheery movie.

He's a warrior. Atlantis is a much more barbaric society than other versions, they deal with underwater monsters on a daily basis.

They want to make Aquaman a badass. The kidn that takes a shot point blank in the forehead, gets a minor cut and shrugs it off.

That'd be really cool for the one's who've been all over in movies and TVs. A lot of Marvel's couldn't afford to do that, but DC can. Except Cyborg. He probably needs an origin movie.

Here they're not even giving Robin a real identity, he's just "dead sidekick".
>>
>>66507243
They maintained their expectations reasonably down in terms of costs, which is why there was such a marketing push, but yeah, they were aiming a little higher.

Goyer was approached to be the Kevin Feige of this new cinematic universe at first, but "Man of Steel" got WB re-evaluating their plans. His first draft for "Batman v Superman" felt too constricting, it didn't allow for broader, more fantastical elements that the studio did want to tackle. So they brought in Terrio at Ben Affleck's behest, and reworked their plan to maintain the grit, without losing the wit.

This is how I know you're full of shit.

If you're in ANY MCU film then you're under contract not to appear in any DC movies. So to say they're pursuing someone who can't even be in their movies is stupid.

>>66507641
He's referenced.

>>66507658
They're polar opposites, and, although they begin as rivals, they grow to respect each other and eventually become friends.

It ends in a stalemate, as expected.

Luthor is the master manipulator. And I do mean that, he's brilliant. Even when it looks like he's been had, he pulls out on top.

The Olympians are inferred to be the "Old Gods" of the Third World. They're dying, and will soon be replaced by the New Gods of the Fourth World. That's an overarching storyline of the higher-budget movies.

That only applies if you have a multiple picture contract. Djimon doesn't, his character already died. Plus, we're spitballing anyway. WB might not even register him for the role.

>>66507742
Brainiac is an Artificial Intelligence that evolved beyond his creators' abilities. His directive is to collect knowledge of the entire Universe, and Krypton is one of the few planets that he couldn't do that. He is lured to Earth by the distress signal from the scout ship in "Man of Steel", and he joins forces with Luthor to capture Superman to his collection, due to Codex embedded in his DNA. In the process, he finds out about ther genetic birthright of the human race and is put at odds against the Justice League while attempting to seize it.

Darkseid is part of the New Gods who have emerged, and he is searching for Universal subjugation. The birthright is what attracts him to Earth and to battle with the Justice League. It's a fairly different interpretation of Darkseid.

Does Superman have some big ideological confrontation with someone in BvS? One of the things that bothered me about MoS was how passive he seemed, he never really articulated why he wanted to save humanity. I'd like it if he and Luthor had a conversation where they pretty much laid out their worldviews.

They're quite different in their motivations, and WB wants to emphasize their distinctive visuals by giving Brainiac the green-skinned look, with some minor additions to make him appear more artificial.

>>66507905
TV show. No connection to "Man of Steel", though, from what I hear.

>>66507916
They don't feel the need for him yet. But they have the "Escape from SuperMax" script in their vault and it still interests them.

The Meta-Gene. Which will tie with the human race's potential to become gods of the Fifth World, as Jor-El had predicted with the whole "guide them into the Sun" speech. Darkseid wants to harvest that for his own benefit, and to ensure his own immortality. All gods are fated to perish and give way to their replacements, but he is unwilling to die.

I know Disney & the rest of pop culture has built the image of disney of being Scrooge Mcfuck rich, but the problem isn't so much with Disney as much as it is that Sony will never sell Spiderman unless it's at a retarded high price to where Disney says fuck all to the deal.

Sony is not going to sell more ammo to Disney to blow them the fuck out in the summer blockbuster biz.

Either way deal or not, Marvel always gets it's cut.

Some fear Superman, some believe he's a hero. Same for our heroes, some really don't trust Superman, others do. In the end, Superman proves his worth and is embraced as a true hero and the leader of the Justice League.

We do. It's cool. It's a massive structure, with several different levels.

No.

Lois is Superman's girlfriend, confident and biggest supporter. She has her own backstory about conducting investigation on Luthor's robotics program and proves to be important to defeat Brainiac.

Batrangs, smoke bombs, a nifty sonar-like device built into his cowl, a heartbeat-concealer, sonic bombs, the armored suit he fights Batman with, and a cool directive he's built into every cellphone and computer in Gotham that instantly blurries pictures of him that some average joe might take.

The thing OP mentionned about them keeping some rights and also getting part of the benefit from MCU movies featuring Spidey doesn't seem like such a bad deal. They barely made money with ASM2, and I don't think they're the ones who get most of the toy sales money anyway.

Luthor says Superman seeing him through the glass is how he'll always see humans. There'll always be barrier. Like looking at an animal at the zoo.

Superman says that's how Luthor sees people. As tools that he would manipulate, but never face eye-to-eye, without a barrier to separate them, to elevate himself. He wants to be more than all the others, and that's what makes him the lesser of them all.

Depends what. I recalled Sony throwing in some Dosh at AMC's direction regarding Breaking Bad because AMC was & still is having trouble managing money because the TV original programming business is new to them because that was network of just rerunning old movies. So they get some cut of that I guess??

Back to Spiderman, they wanted to try to fit MCU into it but someone shot it down last minute. It's only now after their 2 billion losses that they now want to discuss a deal because everyone was just wanting all the pie to themselves.

I'm not sure how well ASM2 does in comparison to other films but I could argue that Spiderman and Xmen flicks are their bread winners, afterall, Marvel was able to build their film division on those 2.

I can't just not watch them. I actually read about and give a shit about some of those characters. Those films are going to have a tangible effect on the comics one way or another.

X-Men is not Sony.
That kinda invalidates everything else you're saying.
And again, when considering marketing costs, ASM2 barely broke even (but then Hollywood accounting). Spider-Man cartoons are mostly not done by Sony (and they could keep those rights anyway).
>>
How much has Terrio changed the script from what Goyer originally had? Just some scenes added removed? Or a huge overhaul with just some bits of dialogue kept and tone maintained?

Also, how much is the neck snap from MoS dealt with? Are they approaching it as still being something referenced as a big weight Supes is carrying and do any other characters discuss it?

No.

But there is a lower-budget series being planned, which is sort of kickstarted by "Suicide Squad".

Read some fucking history, kid. Shit, read a fucking wikipedia article.

>>
>>66509195
He changed it quite a bit. All world-building such as Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Brainiac, Robin's death, it was all added by Terrio. But the overall plot, Luthor's scheme, were still mostly the same as they were with Goyer, though with different dialogue.

Zod's death is a driving force. Superman carries the burden of that on his shoulders, but he's not mopey about it. He had to do it, and he'll always fight to not have to do it again. Luthor uses the argument against him, which Superman quite cleverly fires back at him.

What this Anon said.
Mainly because WB insists on retreating as far as humanly possible from the "Superfriends" level of good-natured heroism as they possibly can. Or even the Timm-verse nobility and purpose.
And for an enormous number of people who casually know of these characters, that's the interpretation they like.

All of this overly self-important, angsty, dark and muted melodrama works for the Batman stand-alones, it does not work for the rest of the Superfriends, and it doesn't particularly work for Batman when he's hanging about with them.

No one wanted the character of Superman that they shat onto the silver screen. Had they not pre-sold the tickets months in advance of critical review or real peeks at the film, it would have made sub-Batman Begins money, and in any case audiences cooled on it really quickly.

This smacks of a desperate attempt to jump onto the Marvel train of enthusiasm before the genre dries up. Man of Steel was a best-forgotten film with some nice CGI work that hardly serves as a good launching point for anything.

With so many of the culprits from that film involved in this one, my hype minimal.
>>
>>66506331
no it won't everyone knows the origins of the core JL, and the ones that people dont know are pretty fucking simple

people are stupid, but not that stupid

I never paid for a cape movie personally, but that hasn't stopped Marvel.
>>
>>66509623
>implying DC gives a shit about Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, Aquaman, or Cyborg
You're a delusional moron.
>>
OP, so there will be a overarching story about the rise and fall of the Gods of the Fourth World throughout the movies? I'm so naive that I believe there's a chance for a Orion film if that's true

Also, what is the general plan for the Batman movies?
>>
>>66508240
>The Meta-Gene. Which will tie with the human race's potential to become gods of the Fifth World, as Jor-El had predicted with the whole "guide them into the Sun" speech. Darkseid wants to harvest that for his own benefit, and to ensure his own immortality. All gods are fated to perish and give way to their replacements, but he is unwilling to die.

I'm a pretty big Marvelfag and I hated Man of Steel but this would be a really cool overarching plot for the DCCU. Really nice way to tie everything together and make it feel epic.

It sounds at the moment like WB want to keep Batman very solitary, but are they open at all to expanding things beyond just him and Oracle in future movies?

Way too early to tell, but WB is interested in the Court of Owls for their first villains, which will allow them to revise some elements of the franchise without having to do an origin movie.

>>66509636
Obviously a lot of people disagree with you, so declaring your own opinions as fact isn't going to mean much to anyone.
>>
>>66509744
OP said Robin is already dead so Nightwing is pretty fucking unlikely.
>>
>>66509744
I believe so. Part of Batman's story is that he's graduating from vigilante to superhero.

I hope they're not against introducing those characters, they'd be robbing the fans of some great stories

In short, WB wants to have Avengers with no Iron Man/Robert Downey Jr. Which is going to work as well as Pirates without Johnny Depp, or Raiders without Harrison Ford.

They are building this expensive, gilded coach and they have no horse to pull. And please don't even attempt to tell me that Affleck is that sort of hollywood star, because we both know better.
>>
>>66509803
As much as I'd rather that wasn't the case, it seems it is for Robin. But they can still introduce Nightwing in a future film without him ever having been Robin.
>>
>>66506361
>Robin is in it, but Jena Malone isn't playing that role.

You done fucked up. Now we know you're lying.
>>
>>66509769
That's not true.
Also there's 2/10 acceptable movies in the MCU, 0/1 in the DCCU.
>>
There can't be that many script doctors working on this. Wouldn't it be pretty easy for WB to find out who you are?
>>
>>66509850
Or you could look at it like they don't want their entire franchise to have to be carried by one single person.
>>
>>66509841
brand recognition=quick and easy money

These movies are nothing but cash grabs, simple curiosity designed to make a quick buck. They aren't going to be any good. They'll make millions off the names alone, no matter how badly tarnished those names end up being.

Alright, a last one.

Alfred is awesome. Sharp, quick-witted, kicks ass, and he's Bruce's voice of reason. He seems much more like a father to Bruce than Michael Caine was to Christian Bale.

Wonder Woman is on her own. In her public identity, she's a filthy rich humanitarian, and she does have a secretary called Etta.

Luthor has a girlfriend that functions basically as arm candy, and Mercy, who is his assistant. She obeys his every demand, and is very cold and business-oriented. She's completelly aware of his less savory activities, but abides to them because it's her job.

They are going to lose the stupids and they are going to lose the critics. Critics will be able to see past it as a marketing decision to try and force you into seeing the other movies. The stupid people or people who don't care and just want to watch batman punch people like the old days will forget the story they saw 4-16 months ago and become highly irritated.

It's like the Captain America 2 thing or even Thor 2, they might make mention of what happened in those movies and why no one bothered to show up to help but they aren't going to become focuses of the main story.

in the nu52 at least aquaman was raised on the surface by his human father after his mermaid mother hit it and quit it. He was later tracked down by the Atlantians and revealed to be the rightful king of atlantis. It could make a decent movie.

>Pardon my /tv/, but they want a big guy to measure up to Jason Momoa. Two names that are pretty popular with the writers, but I have no idea if the studio is acknowledging or interested in, are Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Djimon Hounsou.

Now, make your case. How will these movies be any good?

I'm not talking about OP. I'm talking about "It's going to be hilarious when this shit flops" anon.

Why would a script doctor leak any of this? Seems unprofessional.

Given the sheer number of BS Q&As I've seen on here I'm inclined to say that I believe you wholeheartedly and will definitely take everything presented in this thread as fact

It's going to suck, and all the shitty changes are going to bleed over into the comics.

>>66510746
You literally said it doesn't matter if the film is good or bad. What the fuck?

Maybe he's unprofessional, then.

You just listed three mediocre movies and one good one

Got it.

I don't believe the OP. So I'll ask again, why don't you think the movie will be good?
>>
>>66510818

Winter Soldier is a highly overrated political thriller. I understand if people like it, but I'm amazed people like it more than the First Avenger.
>>
>>66510818
I was throwing him a bone
Anyway you want to look at it, the MCU has shown more proof they can make a decent movie than the DCCU has.

Damnit, I want a makeup trip code.

>I'm amazed people like it more than the First Avenger.
First Avenger started off very strongly, but the second half after he joins the war is incredibly weak. They really should have taken an extra movie to explore Cap's WWII exploits. Because that montage did not cut it. And Red Skull had zero character depth.

>why don't you think the movie will be good?
I already explained this. DC ONLY cares about Batman. None of those other movies are about Batman. They will not actual try when it comes to something that is not Batman. Anything DC makes that is not Batman will fail because there will be no effort put into it.

>>66510897
I frankly don't really have any interest in watching the movies. I don't want this movies interfering with the characters' reputation among the general audience who DC will proceed to pander to. Whatever the plebs say goes.

This is important because it really bugging me. I dont have much faith in twinkleflash but more than goy goydot

MCU has eten movies, DCCU only has one. It's not really comparable.

People seem to disagree.

>Whatever the plebs say goes.
But you *know* that's not true, don't you?
Casuals don't read, let alone buy comics. And as orhers have pointed out, istory says that movies have a minimal effect on comics, if any.
>>
>>66506105
it was Skins, mate, the entire series was half-arsed and rushed. everyone was awful in it. O'Connel has been stand-out in his post-Skins feature work. check out the prison movie, name escapes me. spot on.

having said that, i can't see him as Spider-Man. good actor going on great with each successive work, but Peter Parker he isn't.

That's not how that works.

You can't just go "MARVEL SHELLS OUT SO MUCH SHIT COMPARED TO DC!" when, yeah, they're the only ones shelling out anythig yet.
>>
>>66511199
Declaring that something is a fact doesn't make it one.
>>
>>66511167
Desperately trying to appeal to people who don't read comics is all they ever fucking do anymore! How can you honestly be this blind?
>>
>>66511276
Because they've factually not been doing it any more when there are movies (successful or not) than at other times.
Seriously, publishers pander all the time, this isn't going to change shit except if they're overwhelmingly fantastic films. Which... yeah...
