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.

Yeah, it was funny.  I thought it was weird at first, that they would play him as a timid/scared version of the Flash, but it makes sense once you think about it.  That's all he really does; run, push/punch/make a joke, then run away.

Anyone else seen Justice League yet?

 

I saw it Thursday and actually enjoyed it.  It definitely has it's flaws and I think it was really hurt by WB's 2 hour mandate, but overall I thought it was pretty good.  Not a GREAT movie, but it's miles ahead of BvS.  I'm surprised by all of the negative press surrounding its 'bad weekend'.  Justice League 'only' made $96 million this weekend.  How is that a failure when Wonder Woman only made $7 million more it's opening weekend and it has been considered a huge success from day one?  JL made over 3 times more than the 2nd biggest movie this weekend, it has no real competition until Star Wars comes out more than a month from now but articles are already saying things like "DC stumbles again" and "Where do they go from here?"

How much did it cost compared to WW?

Wonder Woman cost $150M and earned a gross of $822M.

Justice League cost $300M.....and so far according to wiki they've hit $281.5M gross.    Probably need to at least get to Wonder Woman's number to be considered a success.

Thanks for the numbers.  Something to remember about JL's cost is that they had extensive reshoots.  From what I understand, almost half of that cost is from the reshoots.  Not that it matters in the long run, but it explains why JL's cost is so much higher than Wonder Woman's.  What I don't understand is how WB lets Snyder (and eventually, Whedon) spend $300 mil., basically shoot enough film to make two movies ... and then tell them to cut out most of it to keep the film under two hours.  What is the point of that?

I thought about this, but most of the articles I read were calling JL a disappointment because it didn't reach it's $110 million 'expectation' this weekend.  That seems a little ridiculous considering it was only off by $14 million.  Now, if it actually makes Wonder Woman's $822 mil. number is something else entirely.  The only competition it has for the next month is Disney's Coco and Star Wars, so who knows.

 

Also, I love that poster. lol China absolutely does not care about trademarks and copyrights.

Looks like Warner Bros. will be restructuring DC Films

 

Brazil's Comic-Con was this past weekend and DC showed off a reworked list of upcoming films.

 

Wonder Woman II

Aquaman

Flashpoint

Justice League Dark

Suicide Squad 2

Shazam

Batgirl

Green Lantern Corps

The Batman

 

Noticeably absent from that list: Man of Steel 2, Justice League 2, Black Adam (who was removed from the Shazam film and was supposed to get his own standalone) and Cyborg (who previously had a film slated for 2020).  Justice League was originally supposed to be two films, much like the original plans for Avengers: Infinity War.  If both the 2nd JL and Man of Steel films have been shelved, it may be awhile before we see Henry Cavill's Superman again.  Beyond Flashpoint (and maybe, Shazam?), I don't think he really fits into any of these other movies.

Rumors and News

    • 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?
