It's like when 8 years after the Space Shuttle flew for the first time, the USSR launched their "totally-not-the-shuttle" Buran, an exact copy, and it flew a total of once before getting shut down and forgotten.
Thoughts on what little we can see of Flash and Cyborg? I
Except it's more like Sputnik and Explorer 1.
Sputnik travelled into space on a death trap R7 rocket and carried only one radio transmitter.
Explorer 1 travelled into space in a Von Braun-based Juno rocket, was 30 pounds lighter than Sputnik, carried five scientific instruments, and managed to transmit for a longer amount of time.
The superior product receives less recognition simply because it wasn't first. That is a far more accurate parallel to the current cape movie situation.
>DC film universe
Man of Steel made more money than all but four of the MCU films, and it's got an A- on Cinemascore, which, unlike RT and metacritic, polls audience members, rather than compiling critical reviews, which are almost universally worthless.
Clearly, somebody thought they were doing something right.
>Remember when Iron Man killed all those people
Nope, must be a comic thing ;)
Transformers 3 made over $100million more than MoS though, so that means somebody thought they were doing something even right-er.
I don't get why anyone here even tries to discuss DC movies anymore.
It's a massive choir of shitposting drowning out any legitimate opinion.
It's not even the shitposting making this thread bad. It's the people who didn't know that there's a fucking movie special on tonight after Flash but still feel the need to post and show their ignorance.
I hope the special shows individual concept art for each character, for a better look at the details.
Green Lantern comes in later, probably after his solo.
No idea what Cyborg is doing there though. He shows up as Victor Stone in BvS, but I never heard that he's anything other than human in that movie.
The one from the movie 5 years ago is hated and reviled for being shit. They can't sell any Hal Jordan toys, nobody bought them the last two times. John or Kyle have to be the Lantern.
Why does DC seem to hate this design? It's way more modern looking than they grey shit they keep pushing for Cyborg?
Well yes, but he's not white enough for the role.
>They tried the movie and it and it;s merch bombed.
That's because Ryan Reynolds bombs every movie he's a part of.
Good luck, Deadpool.
>They tried the tv show and it and it's merch bombed.
Green Lantern Animated had no merch because of above Ryan Reynolds. Hence why it was canceled.
They showed concept art for Flash and the Green Lantern Corps movie at SDCC 15, so I'm sure they could show something here. Doesn't mean they will though, so we'll see what happens tonight.
Batman v Superman
Justice League Part 1
Justice League Part 2
Cyborg (rumored to be replaced by Titans)
Green Lantern Corps
Throw in "Blue Beetle and Booster Gold" in there as well somewhere
Other than suicide squad, the only ones that are actually set in stone are Wonder Woman (which is coming next year), Shazam, Justice Leage, Flash, a new GL movie, a new Batman movie, and POSSIBLY a Cyborg movie
I'm normally against racebending (except when there is a legit reason ie Mamoa) but I think Dwayne Johnson would have made an excellent Shazam- he is really charismatic and just seems like an all round nice guy. Since he is BA, which I think he'll pull of well, you need someone who is as big and charismatic as the Rock and who can actually act. That's gonna be pretty hard to pull off.
Well you get what I mean. It isn't too far fetched to think they could potentially have visuals to show after SDCC, but it would probably just be of the characters themselves. Like you said the films are still pretty far away, we probably won't see much of anything on GLC for some time.
Around 2017. Nothing confirmed yet tho. Also, Affleck hasn't officially confirmed that he's directing/writing anything DC yet like the rumor suggested...keep your fingers crossed.
I don't think we're getting MoS2. Not because we can't, but (according to rumor) it looks like the plan is to release a solo for each League member (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash) then team based movies to help expand the world. The Cyborg movie is rumored to be changing to a Titans one instead. A Green Lantern Corps movie featuring a Hal and John Lethal Weapon buddy cop vibe. The Shazam movie with both Captain Marvel and Black Adam and possibly the rest of the Marvel and Black Marvel families.
It's all rumors, but I really like this approach if true.
I know its not the best angle but Im sadly not feeling this flash costume
>Backwards logo with no white circle
>No ear wings/lightning bolts
I mean that could change later right? The ears are really killing it for me
The logo is flipped because he was flipped to fit the image better. Wonder Woman is also flipped (eagle head poiting to the right)
The rest also bugs me, though. It seems he doesn't even have the wings slapped on the cowl like Caps in the MCU.
with all the debate about costumes, is now a bad time to realise that the BvS Robin suit has no pants? Are we going back to the 60s?
Yeah I considered that about the logo. Theres a shadow on the side of his head, maybe we cant see them?
This. Notice the arms dont connect with the gloves. So I just assume its the exterior armor and he didnt display the burned cloth/suit underneath
Fair points, yes, but the Arkham City suit followed a similar design with just a red shirt of armour and separate gloves. In all honesty we probably will get pants, there's no way in hell we get Robin wearing panties again, especially in Snyderverse. Maybe the props department just couldn't suspend them in that weird case correctly or something.
There doesn't need to be a division. The company is DC Entertainment now. They just change the bottom depending on the medium being used - Comics, Films, Television, Animation, etc. It's not hard to understand.
>katana will be a Batman spy
>end of movie
"Mr Malone, This is Birdwatcher..."
>"Mr Malone, This is Birdwatcher..."
I'd jizz on the spot.
Ayy Avatar is a legit 10/10 film
Now I like Man of Steel despite its faults, but if you legit don't think Marvel changed the nature of action films you can suck my nuts.
Or did you miss how TV shows and movies are now clamouring to create shared universes? Was it capitalising on the growing trend of box sets where you watch a series not on the odd episode, but in episode order to follow an over arching story? Perhaps. Would someone else have eventually done it if not for Marvel? Maybe but at the end of the day Marvel did it first.
In 50 years time film critics, buffs and historians will be talking about how Marvel helped shape the film industry. Does this mean all Marvel films are 10/10 great? No? Are they all good films? No, but at least they are all in some way enjoyable unless you're an autist who demands absolute purity to the comics, or someone hell bent on disliking them because "normies like them" and they want to be a special snowflake? Absolutely.
Ultimately, I don't think you can call the DC films superior when they only have one film out, and that film, whilst enjoyable is far from perfect. And what flaws it does have aren't overlooked (at least initially) by how enjoyable they are like some Marvel films.
Flash's costume is already built for Batman v Superman apparently. He has some kind of cameo in it.
I imagine this movie did what a lot of CGI movies do. Made costumes and props for the smaller movies to offset their budget a bit. So Flash, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman's movies don't need to worry about their expensive costumes now and can use their budgets on other things.
And yet regular comic-related merch sells really well.
The movie is probably going to be a corp-style movie with John, Hal, Kyle, and Guy because that just has the most potential for success this time around.
I think the TV show bombed somewhat because of the whole superhero block thing they were doing. Superheroes appeal primarily to boys, and I don't mean that in a SJW "isn't it awful sort of way" they absolutely do. Which already eliminates a chunk of your market. And then there's the kids who don't care much for superheroes. another chunk. If you lump that together and say "this is superhero o'clock" you're going to put off some kids who just don't give a shit.
That and I think that Green Lantern at it's best is a bit too high concept for an animated show. Which isn't to say kids won't get it, I mean that executives don't think kids will get it so they palm it off.
They don't think kids want to watch sequential shows, but rather one off episodes that they can dip in and out of. And to some degree they are probably right, but that didn't stop me loving Dragon Ball Z when I was a kid.
TV Executives don't know shit and aren't willing to wait to see what's popular. Either its instantly popular and therefore marketable, or its not. Green Lantern wasn't instantly marketable so it died.
Funny thing is DC Nation was doing great in the ratings corporate bullshit just fucked it over. They once randomly stopped airing the DCNation block and used it to prop up failing shows and the Beware the Batman was cancelled before it even aired.
No. You wrote all that and it's completely wrong.
Green Lantern the Animated Series died because it had no toys to sell. There were no toys to sell because Ryan Reynolds did what he does best and bombed a movie he's the lead in, causing nobody to buy toys from it and causing retailers to be wary of purchasing new Green Lantern toys to sell.
This was all explained by Giancarlo Volpe, who was the producer for the show.
Do you really think the reason why Green Lantern bombed was because of Ryan Reynolds?
I'm not saying he's not a factor by any means, he certainly was, but the script was awful and the villain piss poor
