The DC Comics TV & Movie Thread - A Thread for Talking about Detective Comics Comics Television Shows and Movies

Frankly, I feel sorry for anyone saddled with that job solely because the people at the top seem intent on undermining everyone at the creative stage but if we are talking purely what will result in interesting films, I like Gunn. It's a good choice. I know little about the other dude.

I think Gunn is a good choice to head this up, but yeah, his success is really dependent on the head honchos at WB picking a path and sticking with it. Previous heads barely got time to try to clean up the mess from the previous direction and change course before being removed and the studio having to find a new direction again.

Its like if Marvel wanted to pull the plug after Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2 somewhat disappointed.

My hope is the approach will be a little like his The Suicide Squad; an implied pre-built world instead of having to make a big deal out of establishing that big things are coming. Be different from Marvel by being expressly more standalone yet with crossover in the way it and Birds of Prey did. I don't necessarily need more R-rated DC but those feel closer to the model I personally would want.

Honestly, I think DC has been doing a pretty great job the last 5 years, pretty much since Justice League. Nice variety of tones, from Shazam to The Suicide Squad to Aquaman, nice variety of sub-genres.

I am higher on that movie than most, but at the very least it is an ambitious, interesting mess. It tries to resolve its central villain conflict without a physical fight, which is not something I can think of another superhero movie doing off the top of my head.
 
Now that the first season is out of the paywall I started listening and, yes, this is the good stuff
Spread the good word, brother-man!

I think the movies they've released have all been good. I even like WW84. But the movies in development hell have belayed a very different picture of the studio's internal workings.

I think it's pretty interesting as well. My big complaint is not enough Kristen Wiig

The A plot of the latest episode of Titans S4 involves Nightwing seeking out an elf to help him save Starfire, who has been turned to stone by magic. Its everything I want out of this show.

Stargirl Season 3 is too good. This show did not deserve to be cancelled. I can't say enough good things about it.

My only problem with Titans is that I am unsure of how in on the joke they are in making it. I think they know they've pushed things to the absolute extreme so it is more than a bit silly, its a good tone and it works, but sometimes I think they want me to take Superboy shaving his head and deciding he is Luthor so he's going to act like a dick completely seriously and I just can't. I like how Dick is just like 'I get, you've got to process this buddy, but come on man.'

Also, the reveal in Stargirl was excellent. Like, I suspected, if not quite predicted, what was coming, but they set it up beautifully. It sucks that this show is getting cancelled.
