I saw WW on sunday...I liked it better when it was called Captain America the First Avenger

I can't tell if I just know Marvel characters a lot better, but I can't even begin to describe the stuff WW can do once you get past her strength and agility. It also felt a LOT like the Captain America movie, just using a hot chick in place of the captain.  I really liked that movie though, so no harm done.

Right on. Although WW and the Amazons are little easier on the eyes than Cap and the Howling Commandos.  I wonder if the sequel will have Antiope come back as a brainwashed Russian spy with a metal arm?  I'd watch it.

Recent announcements:

They're developing a stand-alone Joker origin movie that's not connected to the DCEU
They're developing a Joker/Harley movie that IS connected to the DCEU
They're beginning production of a Shazam movie that isn't connected to the DCEU

and the big one...

The upcoming The Batman movie WILL NOT be connected to the DCEU

That last one's a shocker... and probably means Justice League will be the last of the Batfleck.

Can't wait to see which Marvel movies DC rips off for these!

None of these ideas - with the exception of maybe Joker/Harley, but I'd rather see Harley and Ivy - are good. The talent involved is always amazing, but Batman that's not connected? Why? A Joker origin story? Why? Shazam - I just don't care on that one, so YMMV. Seems odd for DC to be this disjointed with the brand, when unlike Marvel, they control all the characters.

Now they are clarifying that the Batman movie is connected, but will not feature cameos and etc from the rest of the DCEU.  It's just a Batman story. No peanut butter in the choco-bats.

This is just poor planning.  They're finally getting some traction on connected movies, but decide that their next endeavors will be disconnected?  Why?  It's so easy to just throw a little connecting point in these movies to make them all build into one larger story.  This is one of the things people love about the Marvel movies.  The Hulk movie wasn't very good, but having Stark show up in a tiny scene made it so much better.  So much wasted opportunity here.  They could have tied the movies to the TV shows and easily brought in a Flash, Black Canary, Green Arrow that people were familiar with.  If for no other reason than getting movie goers to go check out the TV stuff.  It's like each of these projects is run as a competitor to other DC projects, so they can't possibly work to help each other out.  If they're going after stand alone movies, then give us something new like Teen Titans. 

Whoever's making these decisions does not have a clue about what their fans actually want.

The DC studio execs must sit around a large conference table, try to figure out the absolute worst course of action they could do....and then decide to do that.

I have visions of a board meeting where they agree to these ideas, then the top brass goes around the corner and takes off their masks to reveal that they're actually the Marvel Execs.  OR maybe its the Skrulls...

New rumor is that DC was hell bent on starting filming on Suicide Squad 2 before a script is even finished, but Will Smith has 2 upcoming projects to film so they have to wait.

Wasn't Batman: Assault on Arkham basically Suicide Squad 2?
