    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    As I understood it at the time, Robbie blew a few execs away with her Birds of Prey pitch, which was before or around [iirc] the same time SS hit the theaters. Though it improved marginally after the extended trailer, I'm still not holding out hope for Aquaman. And Shazam looks like complete ass lol

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    Agreed. I had my angsty phase when Marvel really appealed, and I was an X-men and Captain America fan more or less as long as I was into the medium, but DC always resonated more with me. I watched Justice League again just last night, and it's difficult to reconcile how fucking bad it is. And it's not just plot/storytelling. The characterization was more than a little off key, abysmal in some cases [Bruce and Barry in particular, and to some extent Arthur. Diana was the only exception] and, the sheer volume of the CGI nearly negated the point of having CGI FX At. ALL. There was so much of it, that clearly the budget was blown and/or it had to be farmed out to meet deadline, so continuity and quality both bottomed out. I mean, fuck, Marvel is much better at mixing CGI and live action even, which is ridiculous given it's pretty much movie making 101 and with the budgets these movies are playing with. I know I'm getting sour grapes here, but it's just unbelievable that DC/WB are cocking this up so badly. They tried to play catch up on the double and face planted so hard their eyes burst and eardrums collapsed or some shit.

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    Well, holy shit. Welcome back, Hauby! I'm trying to get over my comic purism -I mean, I even came around on the whole Iron Fist as missed opportunity to cast an Asian- and, while Arthur may be gruff and mercurial, dude isn't dumb. I'll get over it. Gunn is a good grab for W/DC. If they're smart, they'll give him a wing to oversee. The comic business practice of having an overarching 'editor' translated into success for Marvel. Too bad Nolan passed. Anyway. I know W/DC is trying to be different but if it works? It's a damn shame W/DC has had so many issues getting this shit off the ground. DC has some very strong properties.

    Looks like they might be pulling some of the Trench storyline into the movie. So, color me somewhat more inclined to see it-- but Momoa ain't no Arthur.

    Graham's hitting on the only real play here at this point, but he's doing it all wrong.

    What's happening right now is Kavanaugh ensuring Trump won't pull the nom. If he doesn't, the mind reels imagining how this will all play out. Specifically. Generally though, no way it's good for the GOP. Am I wrong here?

    Kavanaugh doth protest too much.

    Maybe. I mean, it's hard to believe even an intellectual feather weight like Trump would use leverage as hostile trade negotiation without understanding reciprocity. Perhaps he was speaking to his base-- because I cannot imagine a declaration of martial law working out for him or the GOP, *long term. *talking anything more than a few days here

    It seems like Trump is side-eye alleging a Chinese plot to interfere in the midterms because of their targeted tariffs?
