How is this not going to be a horrible movie of epic proportions?

My favorite comment yet about this film

"How is Batman's new suit not wrapped in kryptonite to make this more than a five minute movie?"

Oh how original. "OMG, Superman vs Batman makes no sense cause superman would just punch him once! amirite? lol, how stupid"

Well...that IS how Batman generally attempts to defeat Superman in the comics. with Kryptonite. So...if they do fight at all that is likely what will happen. It's not like Batman ever just walked up to Superman and tried to fight it out without a plan. I mean you know, the major Superman villain is Lex Luthor..who...doesn't have superpowers.

But anyway the v is just for show. They'll probably "fight" for like a few minutes and then team up.

Also technically in this movie universe there is no kryptonite. In man of steel he is exposed to matter from krypton and gets weak and sick which is pretty much what kryptonite does, but strictly speaking that it not kryptonite (the greens hit that glows), just a piece of krypton. semantics but you know

As for GL, I liked how Parallax could be defeated by flying him into the sun. wow. A being of pure energy which devours worlds is defeated by flying into a star. Which there is billions of in the universe. Weak.

DC Comics doesn't have a good track record with their films. Superman Returns and Green Lantern were terrible. The Superman films from the 70s and 80s were awful too. The early Batman films were absurdist and then later campy. The only thing they got right were the Nolan Batman films and Man of Steel.

I have to say I was totally expecting them to come out and say this was actually Justice League. It is stupid, feels rushed. Like ok we want to get JLA off the ground but we don't want to have to make 4 or 5 movies before that happens. Shoehorn a new Batman , Cyborg and Wonder Woman into the next Superman movie, done.

What's worse i learned today because i haven't been following this that closely, that Luthor will be played by Jesse Einsenberg. WHAT. THE. FUCK. I hate this guy no matter what he does but casting him as Luthor? And I mean it's established Batman has been doing this a while in this universe so why is Luthor fresh from college? Jeremy irons apparently is gonna be Alfred. I like Jeremy Irons and feel he's a total whore who wastes his talent in movies that are beneath him (I guess that's one more to his resume), but I don't know that I think of Alfred when I look at him. I mean I DO think this will suck, just not because Superman v Batman is a stupid idea though. Whatever.

05-23-2014, 07:59 PM
well supes in this universe is still pretty young. like mid 20s or something so i guess a younger luthor wouldn't be a stretch. and eisenberg is like in his 30s now despite his appearance.. but yeah that casting decision caught me off guard

05-23-2014, 08:11 PM
They should have done one more Superman movie. Lex vs. Superman but then they team up because Braniac shows up to destroy Earth and only a combination of Luthor's brains and Superman's might can stop him.

Then go balls to the wall with a "Superman 3: The Justice League" because the third in a trilogu always sucks anyway.

.

In MOS what weakened him was a Krypton like atmosphere, like in their ship (when Lois had to wear the mask) and when the World Engine was terraforming earth into Krypton. Yeah it was kinda stupid but it at least got them to avoid Kryptonite which I still hope wont be introduced into this flick. Id rather they just say he took damage and was permanently weakened by what happened or something.

Im hoping the B vs S angle is Bruce Wayne is at first fearful of him like Luthor and decides to try and take him out or something, maybe even partner up with Luthor. IDK. Eisenbergs casting made me happy that we got Batfleck and not something worse. Luthor and Kent are supposed to be about the same age, early 30's, with Batman in his early 40s.

I dont think anyone besides Supes Bats and WW will play any significant part. At least I hope they dont.

Yeah at this point it's like they're trying to alienate every last comic nerd.


I'm gonna go and assume they will reinvent Luthor as some sort of Mark Zuckerbergy nerdy rich douche kid who wants it all. I mean Einsenberg can only act one single way so it's not like they could have him be the comics Luthor. They'll tailor Luthor to him, not the opposite. I dont care if Superman is fairly new to earth, Luthor shouldn't ever be anything under late 30's at most.

And Wonder Woman is some girl called Gal Gadot.

I still can't get over Affleck. "Oh people like him now, he's been rehabilitated". Yeah no...as a director he's ok. In front of the camera? He's still the same guy. He's not the main reason Daredevil sucked (the script is, of all the shit they need to reboot, PLEASE get around to DD) but i really don't see how 12 years have transformed him into a decent enough actor to tackle the same kind of dark conflicted superhero he couldn't do all those years back. Just his voice and his "serious face" is all wrong.

Marvel has made some questionable choices casting wise (both Ruffalo AND Norton, Renner and, though i'm the only one who feels this way, Johansson) but nothing that even comes close. In general they've hit the mark. DC seems intent on missing it entirely with this new film.

Well i dont like him either way but the main thing is he's not a good Banner. They never cast anyone right as Banner. They don't even bother giving him glasses most of the time.

And Robert Downey jr annoys me a little in the sense that....that's not Tony Stark. That's Robert Downey Jr. They made the character fit him. Stark isn't the light hearted jokester he is in the films. I mean i like movie Iron man enough i guess but it sometimes bugs me how its not how Stark should be. Because i'm a nerd.

I actually like Cap. Well he's had some horrible runs like the shit around 9/11 was pretty bad sometimes but when he well written he's a good character and in my mind if we're gonna talk boy scouts, more interesting than Superman.

As for DD i honestly don't think they should have put Elektra in the films. the truth is the Miller run was novel at the time but it hasn't stood the test of time that well (then again i'm kinda biased against miller). And then they remove Stick, well the old mentor teaching martial art is a cliche at this point, that was the argument.. Yeah ok. So...instead Daredevil TRAINS HIMSELF as a like 12 year old kid. Oh yeah that's definitely less retarded.... While i thought this part was boring and unnecessary, Batman Begins DID do the whole trained by ninjas thing and the movie did just fine.

As for days of future past...well Marvel isn't handling this one, it's fox. Don't want to assume Marvel would have necessarily done it better but...well i think the odds are higher they would have. it's their property.

Darkest Night is one of the greatest comic series ever. And it stars The Lanterns.

Not all of Marvel. Because yeah there are some sick Marvel heroes but I mean if we go by anythinh they publish odds just dictate that some will be awesome.

Storm does fucking rock. But 90% of X-men blows. Like Wolverine? Fucking lame, man. And they're not even heroes they're mutants and there's a fuck ton of them which is lame.

i like cap also, i mean i just don't like some idiot kid showing up and telling us marvel is full of "boring boy scouts because captain america"

because you know DC is all about anti heroes and shit

here's an example of how DC is lame

most people acknowledge that the powersets of deathstroke and deadpool are exactly the same

however, deathstroke is one of those boring "mystery men" tropes where he just stands around brooding mysteriously
on the other hand, deadpool is a total goofball lunatic that never shuts up and breaks the fourth wall just because they let that one character do that, because he's completely mad why wouldn't he think he's a character in a comic book

that's pretty much the difference between marvel and dc.

sure, justice league is kind of cooler since it's the super team to end all super teams the most iconic and famous superheroes in american culture on one team

but the thing is it's boring, they are boring characters...marvel people fuckin fight all the time. that's what's makes it fun and that's what makes the movies work and why people want to see them. it's why the avengers went from b-league super hero team to the biggest movie ever and whedon captured that exact spirit of marvel, in that movie, to perfection

I was gonna say that but say Teen Titans instead.

Seriously when i played DCUO (for the record id have played a marvel mmorpg instead any day but marvel fucking sucks in that regard and won't bother doing anything good with their characters games wise. Marvel heroes is the lamest shit ever. Yeah a diablo clone in which i cant make my own character is EXACTLY what i wanted, fuck you marvel) i realised that most people like 22 and under had never read a comic and only liked this stuff because of the lame cartoons. It was pretty distressing.

I have to say though i cant back you on Deadpool. Never liked him. Deathstroke is kinda boring but i'd root for him in a Deadpool vs Deathstroke matchup. I find Deadpool obnoxious and not particularly funny. Of course probably the Liefeld connection doesn't help.

Marvel invented relatable characters. Spiderman being more or less the first.
In the 70s DC got their shit together and started to try a more Marvel approach to some of their characters and if they hadn't they'd have sunk. I mean like i said i dont buy too much into the DC vs Marvel thing, i can appreciate the more golden age elements of some of the DC stuff but i find in general most Marvel characters to be far more relatable (there's always exceptions of course like Thor)

And as for Hulk. the fact that he DOESN'T control his power in any way, and that it is in fact to him generally more a curse he wants to get rid of is what makes the character interesting (well i mean Banner). That's what the whole Peter David run in the 80's was all about. The psychological element of it. That was pretty novel, there's no other characters really like it. But sure if you want to narrow it down to Hulk Smash....

Also, Captain America is pretty much an alien really. I mean, he's displaced in time, in an era he doesn't belong to.

And of all the X-men characters to pick as "rocking" i wouldn't have went with Storm personally. They haven't known what to do with her in years. If you want to talk lame, maybe Cyclops before wolverine. (seriously has anyone ever liked Cyclops? )

Using this nerd thread to say that i just learned that Marvel is doing a netflix series with Daredevil:

http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2014/may/28/marvel-netflix-daredevil-charlie-cox


I'm both kinda excited and extremely wary because in general series in the genre suck . I hope the tone will be darker than other marvel stuff. And i don't want some lame Arrow/Agents of SHIELD type shit with vapid hateable actors either. Iron fist and Luke Cage are also supposed to be on the show.

Some years back they were tyring to have a DD film made set in the 70s. Thing is it would have been great for a series, Luke Cage is kinda Blaxploitation and Iron Fist, kung fu movies. And back then hell's kitchen hadn't been gentrified yet so it was still actually dangerous. It makes little sense for DD today to protect Hell's Kitchen.

I remember Charlie Cox as the guy who Margaret was having the affair with behind Nucky's back on Boardwalk Empire. He's a talented actor. Still kind of wish an American guy would play Matt Murdock / Daredevil. But he'll do I suppose.

Yeah I guess he did still do tv until recently (Luther was great). That would have been great.

I also would like him as Black Panther though I guess i'd prefer Chiwetel Ejiofor.... I mean it's bound to happen soon enough. a Black Panther film. Also with Elba, there could be a problem if they ever go so far as mixing Thor stuff with Black panther stuff (he WAS an avengers at some point) because of Heimdall. I hated the first Thor film (seriously one of the worst recent superhero film) but thought he was by far the only redeeming thing in it. The second one was an improvement and they gave him more to do too.

I'm only vaguely aware of him. All I know is doctor strange is not jared leto. That's what happens when you give Oscars to fucks like these. Then they get considered for parts they'd have never been before because they're now a "hot" actor. Leto got an Oscar because played a trans in a serious film. He had a bunch of makeup and acted like any other actor ever did playing that kind of character. Omg it's so brave he's acting like...all gay and shit. Gay men do that everyday and don't get shit for it.

Actually Jared fuckface was a "hot" actor long before this Oscar. For teenage tv shit.
Then he was the "formerly" who made shitty music, so basically a joke in film business.

and now he is still a joke, with an Oscar. And shitty music. And an ugly haircut.

Wow. I feel like I wrote this post.


Thing is ive been hating him since his days as Jordan Catalano and had to in horror watch him have a career. And then the "music" shit. I don't care for Fight Club but i'll watch it for the scene where he gets his stupid face beat into a pulp. And I think one of the greatest missed opportunity in American Psycho was not showing him getting axe murdered. How could they deny us that pleasure.

Oh yeah and his amputation scene in Requiem for a dream, that's the only satisfaction I got out of that film.

There is very few celebrities out there in this world I hate more than Jared Leto. Nobody should like this guy. No one.

Ok i'm not following here...if they cast a black guy as human torch and yet they're talking about Kate Mara as Sue Storm (wtf please god no that would be even worse than Jessica Alba and that was already as bad as it could get) ...I mean...she should be black too, they're brothers and sisters. I don't care as long as both are black. Otherwise that's implying this is a reboot where they're not siblings and that's where I put my foot down.

I even read a rumor that a woman might be Doom.... Seriously if they fuck so much with what is already established in comics why bother (not talking about the race thing again, just the siblings thing and Doom sorry but doom should definitely be a guy)

seriously who fucking cares what color they are, how is that relevant in any way to the character

what if it's a reboot where wallace is her half brother or her adopted brother or who fucking cares WALLACE IS PLAYING THE HUMAN TORCH

besides jessica alba is latino and iirc the human torch was played by captain america who is a white guy who is pretty much the only character i think should be white because it's relevant to the character

i'm the guy who thinks danny trejo should be hawkeye

I said I don't. But I DO care if they're siblings and according to the shit ive been reading with rumors regarding Sue Storm casting.... I have my doubts. Well ok so i guess one could be adopted I suppose. But otherwise this would make no goddam sense. And if they're not siblings, that's VERY relevant. I also think gender is very relevant. Well or fairly, it depends what character.

full disclosure i decided i would never see X-Men Days of Future Past because of how they made Kitty Pryde be able to send someone's consciousness back in time or some such ludicrous nonsense for plot device reasons

even after they nail the casting they just piss all over continuity for no damn reason

i think that's what upsets me the most, is when they take a good plot that's already been established and piss all over it for absolutely no reason. like the wolverine origins movie how they made the story even more complicated and came up with that ridiculous deadpool thing that just made zero goddamn sense

why? what's the point of that? so you can squeeze a deadpool cameo in there and then piss all over the character anyway? i just don't get it

Weird...just found out an ex of mine is going to appear in a very small role in the upcoming DC graphic novel Wonder Woman: Earth one by Grant Morrison and Yanick Paquette. The character will have her likeness AND name. I guess she knows Paquette. This is unfinished panels she posted on her instagram (the doctor in the first is actually Paquette's likeness):

http://s25.postimg.org/sp57d2c8f/wwal1.jpg

http://s25.postimg.org/o4nmbvhwv/wwal2.jpg

it looks like he gave her the role of a nurse or something. I'm fucking jealous of course. I'd like to be "immortalized" in the pages of a major comic (though if I had to pick, Marvel please). Last I knew she never even read comics.... fucking bullshit.

And yeah I know no one care but me. But come on it's just fucking weird man.

If I had to appear as a cameo in a WW book though I'd like to be some creepy guy behind checking out her ass or something. Like basically this above panel is having us do. Then she'd be like yo creep, stop checking my ass out, then she'd punch me in the face. Cause if you have to share a panel with a major superhero, I think the best thing one can hope for is get punched by them.

in more DC horrible casting news, Jason Momoa is gonna be Aquaman in the Batman v Superman film. I don't know him from Game of thrones but he was goddam horrible as Conan (of course the problem with this film wasn't just him). Not to mention when I think auquaman I think pale blonde guy.


Also seriously just fucking call this shit justice league. Why are they cramming so many characters in a movie mainly supposed to be about batman and superman? That's not bound to feel awkward at all. I have a feeling they know it'll be bad but they just want an excuse to introduce all their characters fast and then work from there. It REALLY feels like they're playing catch-up with marvel.
