VARIETY:  Ben Affleck Will Not Direct ‘The Batman’ (EXCLUSIVE)

More turmoil in the DC cinematic universe?  I can't say that I'm shocked.

Flash and Arrow are still the best thing DC is putting out.  Yes, I wrote "DC is putting out."

Also Flash lost it's director and they're going with a page-one script rewrite.

http://variety.com/2017/film/news/joby-harold-the-flash-script-rewrite-1201969977/

The early rumors are that Wonder Woman is just as awful as the rest of the DC movies so far.  I really would love it if the movie would completely crash and burn and take this whole universe with it, but she's such a popular character I can't see that happening.  Same with Justice League, so I expect we fans will have no choice but to trudge through this garbage for the foreseeable future.   :P

It still boggles my mind that a movie featuring Batman vs. Superman only made $870 million WORLDWIDE

I watched Suicide Squad over the weekend... holy hell.

Yeah - SS was a hot mess.  I enjoyed it a bit more that BvS just because a few of the characters had actual charisma.

Joker was atrocious.

Scuttlebutt is that Affleck is done with the cowl, period.

Joker was atrocious.

Why was he even in the movie?  It seemed totally stupid and forced.

The studio knew that if the trailers only showed a bunch of C-List DC villains that it'd bomb at the box office.

Good God that was bad. DC literally ripped off the entire Tony Stark/Peter Parker scene with Batman and Flash. And their obsession with rock music continues in their attempt to one up Guardians of the Galaxy.

Well, the dialogue isn't very impressive and Cyborg/Aquaman look like carbon copies of Iron/Thor to me, but otherwise it doesn't look so bad to me.  Good visuals and lots of fight scenes, which is really all I expect out of most blockbusters.  I'll probably see it.

Who in the world says "I dig it" in 2017?   :P

I see a whole lot of trying too hard to be cool, and Momoa is the only one legit cool enough to pull it off.

True that, but it's still Batman, Wonder Woman, and Flash in some kick butt action.  Cyborg looks off to me for some reason, and while I like that Aquaman is more of a badass, he sure doesn't seem to be doing much in the water.  I would have much rather seen a Green Lantern on the team or Green Arrow given they already have some powerhouses with Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Armored Batman, eventual return of Superman...

Can Aquaman actually control water (ala Hydro-Man)?  I thought he could talk to fish, was strong, and can swim fast.

Cyborg looks off because the CGI is really sub-par... at least so far.  His real face is very floaty.  Seems like they're giving him a full mask to cover up the problem.
