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.
This is the way.

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?

The "social media review embargo" was lifted at noon today.  From what I can gather, it sounds like the plot is a mess, the bad guy is weak, but the main heroes are decent (except Cyborg) and there's some good wow moments.  Lots of them are saying "It's fun!  But..."

I'm really not surprised.  This whole DC attempt to catch up with Marvel has been a mess.  Half the team is getting origin story/solo movies after the team movie.

To me, that fourth spot should be Green Lantern. Cyborg would be like putting Machine Man as the fourth Avenger. Sure to comic nerds he’s beloved,  but he’s just not a heavy hitter like the others.

I'm still hopeful this will be good.  I'm curious to know if the Flash is any good - I'm biased towards the TV version.  I think their biggest mistake was not just adding the Flash and Green Arrow characters from the show.  I'm not a big Cyborg guy either, but I can see where a "DC Iron Man" on the team is more appealing than Green Lantern.  I think that character is just tough to translate onto the big screen (though they didn't exactly knock it out of the park with Cyborg either).

Damn.  Vanity Fair's review was not kind at all to Justice League.

I've also been seeing a significant degree of criticism over costume design for the Amazons.  And it's notable because the Amazon costumes in Justice League are being compared to the costumes for those characters in Wonder Woman.

Personally?  I'm going to skip this one, too.  I've given up on the DCEU.  If it turns up on cable I might watch it, but I am not going to actively try to see this movie in a theater.
