DC Catch-All [Spoiler Zone]

Suck it Spiderman, she swings on lightning bolts.

Edit- I saw someone mention Ride the Lightning was also released in 1984.

I don't think Steve is really back. I think it is an illusion either created by the bad guy or some other way. He never seems to really interact with anyone but him...well there are two shots where he punches someone but that could be her imagining him doing that.

That is about the most "logical" explanation I can think of.

I think he's back physically, but yeah effectively magic or "SCIENCE!!" and he'll be gone again at the end.

Forgot to come here and just say Shazam was one of the best surprises I've watched. That was hilarious.

So, that Harley Quinn series is enjoyable. It's pretty messed up.

I canceled my DC Universe subscription after completing Season 2 of Titans, which ended up being a pretty big disappointment. A bit too dark, a bit too much of a bummer. The first season was also dark, but there was a fun energy to it that was really lacking in the second season. I also checked out the first episode of Harley Quinn but it just wasn't for me. I'm sure I will resubscribe at some point, probably after Doom Patrol returns.

It's probably the least interesting episode, to be honest.

Yeah I am really enjoying the Harley Quinn cartoon. It's a lot of fun.

That looks awful, right? Why are they highlighting Margot Robbie's inability to hold a single accent steady, much less two?

CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths:

Spoiler:

In the words of the late Ted Knight, "Meanwhile, at the Hall of Justice..."

I liked the crossover but the break hurt it. I was shocked in a good way about a few things in the last couple of episodes. I don't think the story holds up but it was fun.

Saw some big time spoilers on google news thingy and reddit. Might want to put up a word block on twitter if you don't plan on watching it soon.

I also hated the break, but overall I enjoyed the cross over. So much great stuff!

Batwoman (whatever episode we're currently up to):

Spoiler:

So, not only do we find out that the Marvel Cinematic Universe exists as an entertainment franchise on Earth-Prime, but there's also a second Beth from one of the other Earths, possibly Earth-38 if I had to make a guess.

I finally watched the most recent Batwoman. The changes since the crisis event should be pretty fun to watch. As long as they use it the right way.

Holy cow... Birds of Prey has 86% on RT.

DC needs to continue keeping Zack Snyder the hell away from their movies. (He is unfortunately a producer on Wonder Woman 1984).

A friend got into an early screening tonight (yesterday?) and she really liked it. I trust her judgement.

I'm supposed to see it Sat with the SO.

Just saw it - it was a perfect movie

Saw it last night

It was equal parts Tarantino, Deadpool and Saturday morning cartoon. It occasionally stumbles, but you soon forget as the story rips along and folds back in on itself.

I. Loved. It.

I think my biggest problem was the lull in the middle, but otherwise it was everything I wanted and more. Huntress stole my heart, and I need more of this from DC in the future. Please.

Really looking forward to this. I'm pretty sure I'm going to love it, because IMNSHO Margot Robbie can do no wrong. She's also awesome in Bombshell. Totally deserving of her supporting actress Oscar nom.

My SO and I enjoyed it! It is a lot of fun.

Meh. Better than Suicide Squad, but not as good as an 86% RT rating would normally make believe. My wife was the same. Step daughter liked it more than we did.

That's fine. Maybe I'm not the audience. I feel like sometimes DC is graded on the curve. Wonder Woman was a good movie, but kind of didn't stick the landing for me. I think it got a bit of a bump because other DC stuff was so off the mark.

I did like some of the action scenes in Birds of Prey. It seemed well acted. It just didn't make me love it.

Strangely, my wife that didn't think this was that great really likes Suicide Squad and watches it fairly regularly. So you can't account for taste

If I were a 13 year old girl, it would have been the most incredible thing I'd ever seen. If I were a 13 year old boy it also would have been the most incredible thing I'd ever seen, but I'd struggle to explain how and might try to play down how much I liked it. As me, I really enjoyed it. It's a modern Tank Girl, which is awesome.

Mad props to the Back to the Future meets Mad Max: Fury Road climax.

Rob Pattinson screentests in a very Arkham Knight-esque Batsuit. You may or may not see references to Daredevil wherever trending topics show up on your screen, but all I'm picturing is Charlie Cox letting out one long, aggravated sigh.

Can barely make it out, but I quite like what I can see.

I like Pattinson's comments about wearing the suit "Yeah, I feel strong, I feel tough, even though I had to have someone squeezing my butt cheeks into the legs.'”

Here's a brighter black and white version:

Scrolling through that thread... hoo boy the Batfleck boys are angry!

The problem was never the suit. It was the story.
