Justice League & Other DC News

With Suicide Squad coming out in a few days, reviews are started to come in ... and they haven't exactly been kind. The film is currently sitting at 31% on Rotten Tomatoes. The reviewer for Forbes entitled his article, "Worse than Green Lantern; Worse than Fantastic Four". :(

Fanboys are freaking out at Rotten Tomatoes even though all they do is tabulate the reviews.

I don't know if this will suck....

lol Isn't it sad that's the first impression most people typically have from watching a DC movie trailer?

Just rewatched the trailer a couple of times.  I have to say, I'm liking it a lot less than I did on my first viewing.  Why does it feel like Zach Snyder always films his movies on an alternate Earth where we only get 30 minutes of sunlight per day?  Also, I agree with CoC.  What's the point of not showing, or at least hinting at, the main villain?  It's not like it's a surprise.  They announced Steppenwolf as the villain months ago.  He was even in one of the scenes that was cut from BvS.

Zach Snyder has stepped away from the Justice League movie due to the death of his daughter.  His daughter Autumn, 20, committed suicide back in March but news was kept private by the family.

In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the way through it.

 

The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I’ve come to the realization … I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time.

 

Joss Whedon will be replacing him to help finish Justice League.

Did you see the rumor that Ben was out as Batman after this movie?

Wow, like ... OUT-out?  I know he's not writing/directing the Batman film anymore but hadn't heard anything as major as him fully leaving the DCMU.  Is there a reason why?

It's in the rumor stage right now.

I don't know, first he didn't want to direct it then they came in and changed his script, I wouldn't be surprised.

Not like he needs the role.

Btw the Flash line about battle was amusing.

Rumors and News






  • Posts

    • You must admit we run the wide range of opinions here, some have me scratching my head as to what team they actually like.  
    • Other teams aren’t just dropping out of the market because it’s getting late. The crux of dumpster diving is that it’s the scraps no one wants. 
    • Let me amend my last statement a bit. Detroit and Cincy are definitely less appealing destinations then Baltimore. I'd argue the Phillies and White Sox are on the upswing so they'd probably be more appealing to most FAs. I think this discussion might merit it's own thread!
    • The Orioles do not want to sign any free agent pitchers to any deals longer than 3 years.  These 2 guys are simply going to be too expensive and demand too many years. I wish it wasn't so, but the fact that we just got out from under Ubaldo's abysmal 4 year deal is probably not going to help persuade them to rethink their policy.
    • I'd feel much better about signing Cain to a four year deal if he was 27. If they decide to go the route of a speedster, they might be better off signing someone Jarrod Dyson to a one year deal given the uncertainty of the direction in which this team is heading long term. Other than starting pitchers, I don't think they should be giving three or four year deals to any offensive players right now (aside from extending Schoop). This is a team in limbo even if they're too naive to admit it.  And to that point, I wonder how Duquette is able to even sell multi-year deals to respective free agents? Everyone knows that Machado is on his way out and that this team, as constructed, will probably not be able to contend. Why would anyone want to sign a multi-year deal wit the Orioles right now (over another team) unless it's strictly for the money? Short of Miami, I'm not sure there's a less appealing team in the majors right now. And yes, San Diego is bad too, but at least you get to live in San Diego.  
    • The question is, will the OHOF hold their PED use against them?    They’ve kept Raffy out.    We might need to wait until some of the 2012-17 core has retired.    I’d expect Markakis, Hardy, Wieters and Jones all to go in one day.    Manny and Schoop are further away but will get in later.   
    • Could DD simply be waiting for the asking prices to become reasonable and then strike to land two guys like a Cobb & Lynn? Next year there are some great position players who will be Free Agents, but not pitching. With teams trying to limit spending this year why not splurge for two such pitchers and then you could trade them after this year if you need to. The idea being that those teams willing to spend next year will not find much pitching on the market. Could this plan work?
