That's the weird thing. This was a movie designed from the get go for HBO Max! I keep hearing that the new management doesn't want to spend this kind of money on streaming movies. Which I think is fair. But in this situation, they already spent it! I don't know why they need a bunch of reshoots either. Like, the movie had advance screenings and the scuttlebutt was that they were actually pretty good. And the last time a DC movie 'needed a bunch of reshoots' it destroyed their 'cinematic universe' before it started. Maybe they should just like, I dunno, trust the talent they hire and just let them make movies. 🤷♂️Genuinely surprised they aren't just throwing it on max like "here you go fuck off".
It is extremely funny to me that they're probably going to have to start over to recast The Flash.Fun fact: The Flash movie has been in development during the entire 9 year run of The Flash CW show.
This feels like the most likely situation to me.Also they're ass deep in reshoots already. Everything about this decision seems tailored around the Discovery execs who are now at the helm deciding they don't want it and deciding a 90 million dollar write down is something they'll eat to assert their control over the future of the content being put out.
Sounds like a bad plan, so its probably true.
I’m quite happy with paramount plus so far, but mostly because of the back catalog.Yeah HBO Max is currently like the one good streaming service, so it makes sense that it's likely to be ruined.
Not that I don't believe you, but are there any good articles that summarizes this?So now that Discovery looks like it's burning HBO Max to the ground for literally no reason, the internet is digging through the receipts and discovering that Discovery's CEO is a racist MAGA nut. Going through the series of cancellations at WB over the last few weeks shows a pattern of almost all of them are PoC led shows that are getting cancelled regardless of how well they've been doing, critically or commercially. And when cleaning house at WB, all the minorities in charge got fired and the new board that replaced them was made of exclusively straight white males. So yeah, this is looking to be a disaster of monumental proportions, as a fascist nazi is taking over the second biggest media conglomerate in the world. Yayyyyyy.
This is a good start on Discovery's CEO - David Zaslav - and his racism: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...discovery-leadership-draws-ire-over-diversityNot that I don't believe you, but are there any good articles that summarizes this?
I can’t imagine Harley Quinn will survive. I’m just glad they got the season out under the wire. And it’s really great so far! My only complaint is that “Harley and the Gang trapped with the Bat Family in a murderous escape room” is such a compelling premise that it really should’ve been a whole episode instead of just 1/3 of one.The Joker being a good father and husband is the funniest joke that the Joker has ever played.
I swear that if David Zaslav takes this show from me, there will be hell to pay.
I don't know how he can promise us that. All the cancellations up to this point, including Batgirl, have been sprung as a surprise, even to the people making them. You get the feeling that the creative team and the talent behind Batgirl had to learn their movie was getting canned through the media which is an incredibly bad and unprofessional look for WBD. If anything can get unceremoniously killed like that with no notice, unless Gunn has personal assurances from Zaslav himself, I don't know how he can make that kind of promise to the public.James Gunn is assuring us that Peacemaker survived at least.
I can't either and it pisses me off. Especially when they've been syndicating the show on cable and it's been doing really well there too. The show is legitimately good and there's an audience for it. But Zaslav seems too myopic and stupid and bigoted to realize the value of continuing a show like this.I can’t imagine Harley Quinn will survive.
Looking forward to the Guy Fieri Extended UniverseNo surprise but it gets worse, because apparently HBO Max and Discovery + are "the two genders" to this awful new regime.
And kids and animation is getting fucked up.
This is far from the worst thing in this new but that's like, haha, really?
