DC Cinematic Universe Thread

There are many competent woman directors who never get a chance to direct a studio movie, let alone a big budget movie. While I'm sure DC is specifically seeking a woman director for PR reasons, I'm happy for any doors it may open.

Hollywood is a male-dominated workplace. It's irritating to see promising female directors get passed over for new, less experienced guys. And while getting a female director for a WW movie is definitely a PR move, it just makes sense at least for the first movie.

McLaren is a fantastic choice, as her roster of TV episodes shows, and I think she can get a good performance from Gal Gadot if Zack Snyder can't. McLaren would be perfect for any of WB's upcoming DC movies, not just Wonder Woman. I'll be happy to see her name on the film if she's given room creatively to make a good movie.

I don't think Leto will play. He passed on Doctor Strange and he doesn't seem interested in comic-book movies. It'll probably be someone else.

That's funny, all I've read about Strange was that he was actively campaigning for the role, but didn't get it.

Source or it didn't happen!

Don't worry: I'm sure there'll be at least 5 rewrites before the film is released.

So Jared Leto is indeed the new Joker in Suicide Squad. The rest of cast announced here.

Hmmmm... That's a very... intriguing cast there...

Jaden Smith is bound to be weaved in somehow.

I heard Will Smith was instrumental in getting Viola Davis (The Help, "How to Get Away With Murder") on board as Amanda Waller in Suicide Squad. Nepotism involving his kids aside, if you have Will Smith in your corner campaigning for you, that's a good thing.

She's a fantastic actress and perfect for the role.

Am I alone in thinking that a theoretical (or otherwise, depending on the latest news) Justice League movie is gonna bomb in the box office?

I sure hope not.

As for Suicide Squad, who the heck are they gonna cast to go up against Heath Ledger's Joker? I mean, how do you climb higher than Everest?

They're not going to try and out-do Heath. (For one, Leto doesn't look like him.) They're going for a completely different direction... due to Harley's involvement. I don't think Nolan even thought about using her at all.

On the other hand, Margot Robbie's casting as Harley Quinn is spot-on. She LOOKS the part (watch the animated series, she even looks the part without the clown makeup) and the acting to back it up. She can nail the funny and crazy side of the character too.

So can we expect her to refer to her boss as "Mr. J" in the film? (I ask because I haven't gotten a sneak peak at the script yet).

Are we going by her performance in The Wolf Of Wall Street? Cause I haven't seen her in anything else. Big fan of Pan Am, Pilgrim? ;)

Wow. You know what though? Gyllenhaal could really rock that role.

I fully expect Robbie's Harley to refer to the Joker as both "Puddin'" and "Mr. J." That's part of her character.

I wonder if this Harley will have her two 'babies' aka pet hyenas along for the ride.

What's Google? What's Yahoo? What's Bing?

Glee is an American television series about high school students with a lot of singing. It's how a lot of young stars and starlets you've never seen or known their names got their start.

And Geocities! Those were the days!

That could've been an idea for an Indy film:

Indiana Jones and the Lost Geocities

Oh, and let's not forget Netscape!

Imagine if regular everyday conversations went like this. "Oh don't bother telling me what you're talking about, I'll just make an awkward pause in our conversation and Google it".

But that's the twist. Anyone who posts a comment or question on this forum is sitting at a computer or holding a smartphone or tablet with the jewels of the Internet available through a search engine. There's no need to ask simple questions, yet if someone does, there's nothing stopping us from teasing.

Imagine Facebook political arguments taking place in real life. "You're wrong! And here's why... wait, let me Google this topic so I can clearly articulate my point".
