well, there's no real plans or works to do a MoS 2 or a Justice League 2 atm, even before this, no?

I wouldn't want to be stuck in a string of cameos for 5 years while WB decides what to do and be kicked as Superman in 2025 anyways, because I'm now over 40.

It'd be either "give me a Superman movie too" or "let me use some good vibes of MI, etc... to leave the DC shitshow and take a shot at being in Hollywood as something other than "another one of those actors only ever known to be in one super-franchise and every-after doing a small indie movie every 10 years".

It blows my mind that Dark Knight and Iron Man both came out in 2008. The difference in fortunes and good movies adapted is almost yin/yang in opposition.
Imagine travelling back in time and saying that in 10 years, Thor 3 was critically acclaimed enough to have people begging for Thor 4, which would be the character's 8th appearance in a movie.

Oh and Thor 3 came out in the same month as Justice League and beat it.

Thor 3 was a very pleasant surprise especially since Thor was a fairly bland and weak intro. This was the first series I thought of when I thought of a successful soft reboot for DC. Until The Avengers movie, all of the Marvel movies were solid but nothing exceptional. They built the foundation, followed the comics fairly well, and got some great talent. Now, these movies are huge events because of great planning and execution...in a short time span. They made movies for their fans.

I liked both BvS and JL even with their massive flaws. They didn't follow the comics very well and both were written poorly. Horrible Lex in BvS, Flash a bit too goofy...did I mention the terrible writing lol. Soft reboot could work if they decide these movies should be made for the fans, instead of beefing up their pockets or letting an exec fuck up their universe. You know...like casting Michael B Jordan as the next Superman. It's really their choice.

I get the feeling that Marvel put comic fans in charge while DC put typical hollywood people in charge.

Kevin Feige's filmography is really weird, he went to film school but has only ever been a producer on Marvel Films. In fact he is named as producer on ALL OF THEM, including things like Blade and Spiderman and X-Men. They must have put a lot of trust and creative control in his hands.

DC clearly has lots of studio interference by contrast.

i'd disagree and say Marvel had a lot of people involved including script doctors and comic guys reviewing stuff, whereas DC sorta put all their marbles into Zack Snyder's hands and he royally fucked them over

yeah JL was shit and had too many hands but superman and B v S were bad and seemed like it was all Zack. of course who knows whose idea it was going directly from Superman into B v S, that was really the thing that sunk the entire thing but I have a feeling that was Zack's idea

James Gunn Lobo please holy fuck I need that. I bet he could do a decent Arkham or Red Hood movie as well.

I bet they give him a lot of freedom, but I wonder how the lack of that huge Marvel support team will effect him.

Pretty great for Gunn - if he succeeds and SS2 is awesome then he will be the man who saved the DCverse, if it sucks nobody will care and its not like his career can get hurt any more

the social media wars when the movie comes out are gonna be great between people who don't care and people who REEEEEE about anyone paying to see a movie by him

Free advertising, but also would suck ass to encounter dickhead protesters when I just want to go see a movie.

Anything with James Gunn attached will not see my money. I will pirate or Netflix it but I don’t give a shit if everyone here swears it’s the best fucking movie ever made.

No.

However, do you. I am not telling anyone what to do, and I’m not going to start.
