DC Catch-All [Spoiler Zone]

I've always been a fan of Miller's Dark Knight Returns version of Batman and Year One. Supposedly the new movie is referencing Year One so far i think it's looking good.

Looks like a 1960s muscle car crossed with a 2010s super car.

My wife and I really enjoyed Birds of Prey. I'm a bit bummed that it didn't do well in the theaters.

I am a little surprised that there wasn't more misogynistic backlash over it. Like Brie Larson's Nissan commercial, it is very much about female empowerment and how women don't need men propping them up.

My wife's favorite word is now jizznozzle.

Oh there was misogynistic backlash. Comicgators really went after the movie and Gail Simone who wasn't even involved. She was just excited about it.

Yup, they also like to take credit for it not doing very well. I tend to think the marketing wasn't very good. I'm a few posts upstream talking about how awful the trailer looked.

The marketing could have been better, but I wouldn't blame marketing entirely for this bomb. I think the key issue was that Harley Quinn simply isn't the big name draw that comic fans think she is to a general audience. Wonder Woman will get butts in seats, but Harley Quinn? Clearly not. The Harley Quinn cartoon is also absolutely incredible and I don't see anyone talking about that show either.

The Harley Quinn animated show is so great! Do not watch with your kids though.

I'd include that in the flawed marketing.

Doom Patrol Season 2 starts June 25th.

Batwoman Season 1 finale:

DC takes on CTE in football. Kate still honors her promise to Kara. Mary deserves her own comic series. And the Hush storyline went exactly where comic fans and Arkham series players thought it would...

Spoiler:

... And congratulations to actor Warren Christie for landing the roles of Tommy Elliott, Hush, Bruce Wayne, and Batman going forward.

That is to bad, I was digger her as batwoman. To bad they can't retool it as a batgirl show and make it like the batgirl from Harley Quinn cartoon.

Huh, wild. Not too often a lead just up and leaves after 1 season.

I watched Stargirl. At the very least, its tone seems better suited for having her fight against a guy called "Sportsmaster" than when the super serious black ops sidekick cartoon team did.

Sportsmaster may actually be a dumber name Matter Eater Lad.
And yes he was interesting in Young Justice.

They're actually going to release the Snyder cut of Justice League.

Good. Now everyone can see how terrible it is and finally stop talking about it move on.

I'm actually excited to see the Snyder cut. He's always tried to be faithful to the source material in the work he's done. Hopefully this is what we'll see.

About the Snyder cut, if I remember correctly, he had to leave the movie due to a horrible family tragedy and that's why Joss Whedon was brought in. So, wasn't Snyder's version of the movie then unfinished? If so, are they shooting new scenes to finish it? If so, why? Then again, maybe the whole movie was completed and he just had to finish editing it?

All that said, I'm sure his cut will get lots of criticism (mostly from the rabid "fans" who have been demanding the release of said cut for years), but that's the Internet, I guess.

Edit: a quick Google search told me that Snyder left the movie when it was in post-production, so I guess he was done shooting.

My understanding was that principal filming was largely done, but when Snyder had to step back due to a loss in the family, Whedon took over. He rewrote a large chunk of the film, and re-shot a whoooooole bunch of stuff (maybe that was directly related to Henry Cavill's Bad Stache FX? I forget. I know Cavill had to go back for reshoots after he'd grown the Mission Impossible mustache, though). Rumors at the time (I mean, Hollywood rumor mill stuff, not "rabid fan wishful thinking" stuff) were that Snyder had a near-finished cut of the film for dailies before he stepped away (usually at that point, the VFX isn't totally polished but most everything else is). I'd imagine that he could re-use a bunch of the finalized Whedon footage plus whatever added VFX Warner Bros. are willing to throw at it for cheap to fill in the gaps.

I'm morbidly curious how this is going to turn out, but otherwise... do not want.

This is a pretty good summation. As for this news... bewilderingly hilarious. I'd also be morbidly curious, but I highly doubt I'll be three hours of morbidly curious.

Yes, Cavill's Bad Stache was directly caused by the reshoots, because he grew it after principle photography on Justice League had wrapped.

Whedon took over the film because Snyder left production, but he also changed the direction of the film at Warner Bros.' behest. Remember this was back when Suicide Squad had over-performed, Batman v Superman had under-performed, and WB had decided that everything needed to be funnier and less serious than what Snyder was making. Allegedly, Whedon pulled the whole production in a more (for lack of a better term) Marvel-like direction, and Snyder's original version was buried.

But yeah, VFX work was never completed on Snyder's version and it didn't exist in some viewable form. Which is why they're not releasing it until next year when they've had time to actually finish it.

How much did Whedon and the studio know about all the crazy stunts Cavil did with Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible?

Very interesting! Thanks, everyone .

Edit: And very informative video. Thanks, SpacePPoliceman!

Aw yeaaah.

Actual summary: She was seriously hurt doing stunt work, and that's after one of the show's production assistants was paralyzed on set.

I'd quit that show too.

Okay so F that stunt coordinator because she's an awesome Batwoman.

Jesus! That makes me angry! Is there anywhere I can read more info on this?

You can try Deadline article

How did a production assistant got paralysed on set?

It's a bit corny, I suspect on purpose, but having watched 3 episodes I'm liking Stargirl.
