Green Lantern was intended to launch the DC Movieverse.  So really they're only a couple box office failures from scrapping the whole idea and starting fresh one more time. 

Man of Steel was a box office success despite being a critical failure (and really, REALLY stupid).  I expect a huge opening weekend for Dawn no matter how awful it is.  I think it's a big mistake bringing out Suicide Squad second - that property has almost zero recognition, and unless it's spectacular doesn't have a chance to build an audience like Guardians of the Galaxy did.  If it fails like GL, then who knows what'll happen with their slate.  WW would be filmed and getting effects done.  So it'll be released.  JL would probably be in production and safe.  But everything after that - certainly at risk.

I couldn't gather whether Rick & Co. came back on purpose, and lured the Termites in on purpose, or if they just happened back for some reason?  They didn't seem to explain that.  I like to think Rick did that on purpose, and basically used everyone in Gabriel's office as bait, more or less.

They came back on purpose.  Leave in a big display, knowing they're being watched.  Hide out while the hunters go into the church.  Then go back.

The main reason it was confusing was because they filmed it to be confusing... they omitted the part about coming back from the planning scene so it'd be a surprise.  You were led to believe that they were actually going to the school.  Worked well in creating an amazing sense of tension, but not particularly honest.

Damn.  A Serpent Society movie would have been all kinds of badass.

Here's a quick Photoshop attempt.

Benedict Cumberbatch cast as Dr. Strange

They'd be fools now not to pit him against Loki at some point.  The line of women on opening night would stretch for miles.

Yeah - the group split makes no sense.  Abraham wanted to leave because he perceived a threat to Eugene.  That threat was eliminated.  Now there's no reason to leave immediately.  I suspect it's for story-telling.  It's a lot easier to plot an episode with 6 mains than it is 12.

Hard to know if cooking will sterilize tainted meat.  If it's a venom-based toxin (mainly delivered through saliva), hard to know if it'd present in the meat, or if cooking it would make it inert.  Cooking spoiled meat, in general, doesn't make it palatable.  It's pretty clear tainted blood has no effect when splattered all over the body, open wounds, eyes or mouth.

With SHIELD's limited FX budget, I'm guessing we won't see Skye's dad turn into a monster.  It seems pretty obvious he's what killed everyone in that village.  I was thinking he could be Wendigo.  Not a 1-to-1 match to the comics, but a fair adaptation.

No explanation yet of Whitehall.

And I agree - so far this season has been aces.

What's to say Bob wasn't bitten?

Lack of symptoms.  The fact that the cannibals ate him.  Pretty sure they'd inspect their food before chomping down.

WTF was going on with Bob before he got nabbed? I was absolutely sure he had been bitten or scratched at the Food Bank and was sneaking off to run away or kill himself. He seemed pretty distraught outside the church there. Weird.

I think he was overcome with joy.

I don't think we're going to get any further exploration of the topic via the show.  Either the wardrobe dept took a lot of liberties, or it was intentional.  With as detail-oriented as the showrunners seem to be, and given that this was a highlighted kill, I doubt this is something that'd slip past.

Yeah, in a world without secret identities, the focus of Civil War would need to change quite a bit.  Not just registration, but submission to government monitoring or something.

In the comics, the government required people with superpowers to register.  Half the heroes were in favor.  Half were opposed.  And they battled across various books.  This was the arc where Spidey took off his mask.

Wonder Woman origin to follow New 52

So apparently the Greek gods of Olympus exist in the Snyderverse.
