    How the fuck did that trash fire get a sequel?

    Are standards no longer a thing?

    I'm finally interested in watching the original.
    What a curve ball.

    I think DC is just desperate for a hit, and what options do they have?
    Gunn has a successful and even somewhat spectacular track record for the genre, with the two GotG's and an exec prod of Avengers 4.

    I assume Aquaman will do okay coming up. James Wan will bring in solid money for them, even if it's just fast and furious under the sea.


    The thing is, I just thought I saw something about the SS2 screenplay being finished a month ago... but that was before the director bailed and before Gunn was involved. Maybe the script is being ditched too if they are getting Gunn on board.

    Its sad because I really like DCs television shows, they do long arcs much better than movies...

    DC has a really cool roster of heroes and villains, IMO better, more interesting, more colorful than Marvel's, so it's kind of depressing to see the powers-that-be just trying to copy and paste the MCU formula. Such wasted potential.

    They just don't seem to have anyone who knows what to do with the properties anymore.

    I've been pretty hard on Snyder. I guess at least he had a vision even if it was too dark in some ways and not deep enough, since most of the other stuff they do ends up being total shite. I didn't like the final Nolan Batman film but at least he had his own take on things + consistent tone.

    Studios just seem to be terrified to take chances and end up helicoptering the whole affair halfway through, leading to a real mess of story and tone. This has been happening with Disney properties too, sometimes it works out and sometimes it ruins whatever good there was in the film.

    Their new Shazam movie looks like a more light-hearted spin. When I saw Zach Levi at Baltimore Comic*Con at end of Sept, he said he actually passed on the movie lead tryout (he figured they were going for big buff guys, even though he was approached cold on it)... then went back a few months later to audition for a supporting role that opened up and they were like, "uh, do you want the lead? you're exactly what we're looking for." I've heard the film described as a cross between Tom Hanks' "Big" and a superhero film probably more in tone with light-hearted Iron Man and from the promos that seems to be true.

    What would be pretty cool for high-end TV would be a "Legion of Superheroes" involving either Darkseid returning (something the movies have kinda screwed the pooch with) or something involving the Time Trapper /Glorith arcs. But taken more seriously, over the long term, rather than crammed into a 100-minute film that is poorly written.

    Also DC needs to invest more in John Constantine...

    The new director might be able to save it.
