    I predict this being delayed by 6 months to a year and them filming both parts back to back? Both Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman were delayed. I would say it depends on the dates of the next Star Wars film considering that has already been put back.

    Also a bit disappointed that there is no talk of a Green Arrow being cast or a Martian Manhunter. If they are bringing the Green Lantern corp into this then I don't see why he cant play a part.

    Not overly inspiring that The Flash's emblem backwards in the promo pic....

    Another image of The Flash costume in the background, as well as concept art for Mira.

    I know Darkseid has been thrown around to be the movie's villain, but I find it interesting that the films working title is Caveman.. What if Darkseid is a smoke screen and they actually decide to go with Vandal Savage as the main villain..

    He wouldn't have been allowed to be used in the DC Legends of tomorrow TV show if that was the case.

    I don't see why not, they aren't related at all. If anything it's providing folks who wouldn't be in the know an introduction to the character.

    Given that characters haven't been allowed to be used in Arrow or the Flash or have been killed off because of upcoming involvement in movies I wouldn't be surprised. DC's policy with this seems to be 'people are stupid and won't understand how there can be two different versions of a character' with the notable exception of the Flash.

    Plus people have already been complaining he is a weak villain to base the whole series on. I would prefer Brainiac myself for the first film.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,100 ✭✭✭✭RobbingBandit


    Darkseid is the reason the Justice League is formed in most origin stories, I think Doomsday is the smoke screen in Batman vs Superman.

    IMO Darkseid or Parademons will show up in BvS at some stage may even be an attack on Atlantis involved which is why Aquaman is written in already.

    I'm disappointed that Snyder is still involved.

    I would have any director instead of him (within reason, not Bay or Schumacher).

    I see this film being delayed too, depending on the reaction to BvS, there could be a lot of rewriting.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,721 ✭✭✭Otacon


    Personally I like Snyder so long as someone else is writing.

    Exactly and I think Terrio will be brought back for this. Affleck will probably have a lot of creative involvement also.

    EDIT: I believe Terrio has already completed the script.

    Saw on a wonder woman announcement that there are two untitled DC movies penned for 05.10.2018 and 01.11.2019. Got to think one of those will be batman.


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,357 ✭✭✭✭Penn


    They'd be crazy not to. I think I read that they'd only signed Ben up for BvS & both Justice League films. Given the overwhelmingly positive feedback Affleck has gotten, they're no doubt proceeding with a solo film and probably signing him up for cameos in other films.

    A Batman solo film written by Affleck & Geoff Johns (don't really care if Affleck directs or not) could be spectacular.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,115 ✭✭✭✭Nervous Wreck


    I pretty much hate Geoff Johns but if Affleck was directing, I'd be more open to it.

    Really? The movie's pretty much been universally slated has it not?

    The movie, maybe yes. Affleck himself has been generally seen as one of the few plus points in terms of performance and a very good batman.

    I can't comment on him as batman because I didn't go to see the movie after the reviews. I really didn't enjoy him as daredevil though. I think he's a great director but I've actually rarely enjoyed his acting since he did the Kevin Smith movies.

    I despised BvS but Affleck's performance as Batman was easily the best of his career and, imo, elevated him to the best Batman so far.

    I think he was a good Daredevil in a bad Daredevil film.

    He has always had the acting chops, he's just picked a hell of a lot of bad roles. But even still, over the past 10 years between directing and taking much better roles, he's become a terrific actor. For me, he's the best Batman yet. He completely nailed the role and character. Although I had strong issues with BvS, he wasn't one of them.

    With Warner Bros. & DC snatching up J.K Simmons, they've now gone and added another Spider-Man alumni in Willem Dafoe to the cast of Justice League Part 1.

    Playing a "good guy" as well which is interesting, though could be a swerve.

    Booster Gold... What a fcuking weird choice. I thought they'd previously announced a Green Lanterns film and a Captain Marvel Shazam film...?

    Anyone else feel only a fraction of these films will actually see the light? Maybe Suicide Squad will give the dc films a shot in the arm, ditto Wonder Woman too I guess, but just don't feel theres the same sense of cohesive purpose from DC / Warner franchises that I do with the MCU. And that it'll only take one flop to set the plans unravelling.
