I understand, but Wonder Woman 2 is nowhere near actual production. Either way, it's not really worth mincing words over.


I actually liked Zach's DC universe better than Marvels. Granted it could have used a little humor, a little. Could have been less dark. But seeing the arc he was following, I can understand the darkness. Each hero would bring their own light or dark to the movies. With different directors on board, Zach could have given a little direction to keep things together without actually having them interconnected together in every movie.

Hard to judge. DC Universe became stillborn in the cradle. Zack's movies always look great. Justice League looked garish and cheap - the finale was a blur of cgi fuchsia green-screen vomit.

Marvel has had soo many films and diff directors at this point - there is no singular look to their movies. Many of their directors are capable studio everymen like Favreau, who can deliver on time and on budget. Waititi's hiring for Ragnarok signals that Marvel may be giving more control to auteurs in the future.

I doubt we will ever see it, but I hope there is a Synder's cut to the movie. A lot of things felt out of place in the movie, probably due to different directors. My understanding that fx were done on Synder's film, and Joss redid most everything. The ending, looked rushed and cheap.

Justice League wasn't anything. We got a film that only existed because of studio execs using the film's release date as personal financial fodder. I bet Snyder distanced himself permanatly from Justice League once he stepped away. I bet he tried to convince them to push the date back so he can finish and they refused, which set the stage for Snyder to wipe his hands and pass it to Whedon. All speculation of course but reading between the lines, Snyder was forced out by intangibles he didn't want to partake in anyway. The end result is jarringly embarrassing. Aquaman needs to get here pronto and erase the stench of JL. Nobody will notice anyway. This Walter dude has overseen some successful film franchises and directors under the realm of who he worked with (like Wan and Sandberg) are on the surface. From a sheer creative standpoint, at least he understands that process. All he got to do is keep the studio execs off his director's ass.

Flashpoint seems to have secured a director (or directors). Too bad it wasn't Zemeckis or Raimi as rumored.

They haven't secured them (yet).

Cameras will roll on Wonder Woman 2 and Suicide Squad 2 this year.

Last night was the first episode of Black Lightning.

Overall, very good. I dug it. Easily the grittiest CW hero show yet. Cress Williams, who plays Jefferson Pierce aka BL, was Antwon Babcock on Nash Bridges years ago. The show actually features the "return" of BL to the scene, as Pierce had retired his alter ego nine years earlier.

The surprise casting choice was James Remar as Peter Gambi, Pierce's buddy. Gambi is a tailor who designs the BL suit. You can never have enough Remar.
