How did this get made?  Seriously, who were the brainwizards that green lighted this one?

Same dumb bastards that killed the MOTU line and are currently killing the Batman and Justice League lines.

It's no small irony that at the same time WB's studio execs had given up on the comic book movie genre due to Batman's demise, the movie that quietly started this comic book movie renaissance was Blade, a surprisingly popular film produced by WB's own New Line division based on a property owned by Marvel Comics. These execs have been blasted for not being able to do what Marvel (and other studios) have. Here WB is sitting on the rights to the characters that popularized the genre and they can't seem to get it right.

When I saw Kevin Costner FLYING through the ocean in Waterworld, I thought, "THAT'S how Aquaman should swim!" What worries me now is
that any Aquaman project would look too much like Namor, which is already in development.

Green Lantern is rumored to be in the works with Adam Sandler in the title role, but I can't help drawing immediate comparisons to The Mask.

Wonder Woman is taking longer to get to the screen than Spider-Man, but for completely different reasons. Last I heard they still didn't have a script everyone (IE - informal corporate focus groups) liked.

The Flash was going to get the Smallville treatment this fall as a college student with the power of superspeed (including the ability to time travel), but the pilot was canned.

Captain Marvel is in development at New Line, though. I've got high hopes for the studio that brought us that fantasy trilogy the last couple years. But again, I'm worried a kickass SHAZAM! will only be perceived as a Superman knockoff.

(And don't get me going on the Superman franchise.
There's not enough web space...)

I want to be the Avi Arad of DC Comics, dammit!

This just in:

Halle Berry's career going down the tubes!

Review: 'Catwoman' a muddled bore

If Laurel and Catwoman started making out at the top of the Hedare beauty headquarters, instead of trying to throw each other off it, even that wouldn't make the movie any more interesting.

If the "Spider-Man" movies represent all that can be wondrous and inspiring in a comic book adaptation, "Catwoman" is the absolute opposite.

ZING!

Funny story: People booed the preview before Spider Man 2.  ;D

I would NEVER see this movie. It's just so stupid and wrong. I'm predicting this will be the biggest bomb this year (Or since the superhero movie craze started).

The reviews are out in the papers, really bad reviews. This should be out of the theaters real soon & on DVD within a couple of months!  :D

I'm surprised it came in at #3.

"Catwoman," in which Berry plays the feline superheroine from the DC Comics series, opened at No. 3 with a disappointing $17.2 million".
