There were THREE magician related films released in 2006 - two of them had Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johansson - what are the odds?

Please make those kinds of posts in the coronavirus thread, and not any other thread, thank you

All I want is a damn Superman movie. One that isn’t depressing and illogical like Man Of Steel was.

 

I’d love to see Brandon Routh repeat his Kingdom Come interpretation, that was spot on. He has such a core of strength, calm, innocence that no Superman has had since Christopher Reeve.

 

But of course, “Znyder” has a hard on for Batman and couldn’t care less about the legacy of ol’ Supes. He even admitted during the making of MoS that he wanted to do a Batman movie but DC said no. And then he found a way to, not only work him into the sequel, but actually make the story about him.

 

And stuck to his guns regarding his treatment of Superman.

 

That’s one of the reasons I like Whedon’s JL - Superman actually acts like he is supposed to.

 

But now it seems that Znyder’s wagon is attached to Warner once more, and I guess we’ll never have another glimpse of Routh in the titanal role.

 

Especially not, now that we have “millennial-Superman“ TV-show coming up on CW, with all the implications and baggage that that means.


*sigh*
 

All want is just a damn Superman movie.
 

With Routh.

 

Directed by someone who gives a damn.

 

Is that too much to ask?

She does look like she could be related to Cavill or Russell Crowe, if the shirt Muschietti showed is any indication.

 

I like her so far.

Snyder is too progressive for JWFan that still wants to hang on to the Superman of the '40s. They don't understand that this naive version of Supes was the very reason why they let him die in the comic books. His ratings were getting lower and lower.

Lol. I don't need the Superman of the 40s, but I'd love a Superman that is written with some character. Only one that I felt really captured his character's true struggle is the Smallville version.

Oh great, now that he found a new home at DC, Guardians Vol. 3 will take even longer to be release.

 

Pretty sure he's 100% committed to filming that later this year no matter what happens with DC

Gunn is going to start work on GOTG V3 (and a holiday special) after he locks picture on The Suicide Squad and finish directing his episodes of "The Peacemaker."

 

That DC project is going to be after GOTG V3.

Wow. I can't wait for the next one.

It's worse, just for the fact Pfeiffer isn't in it. She was fantastic in BR, even though I hated the movie overall.

 Abrams is one of the worst directors ever. Not only a bad director in every way (The Rise Of Skywalker is easily the worst Star Wars movie in history and his clumsy direction and filming has got a lot to do with that), but he has no artistic personality none whatsoever.

I dunno, his directing might be fine. I mean it's mostly telling actors where to stand, what to emote and deciding where the camera goes.

 

And that was exactly what was so terrible in The Rise Of Skywalker. Everything looked clumsy and classless, at least in the first hour, which was all I could stomach. Yes, the writing is terrible but that can be compensated for with strong imagery/storytelling, it is the art of 'moving images' after all, but there was none of that either. It's completely bereft of art.

Sure, but there's only so much poor scripting a well directed movie can hide. Take War of the Worlds '05 for example, nicely directed, great visuals, bland mediocre scripting. The directing and visuals are nice, but the glaring script red flags are still annoying as fuck.

 

Films need to be a well-rounded, holistic experience, where all the pieces fit together with a level of balance.

 

I'm sure there are also examples of good scripts with uninspired direction too.

To be honest, I didn't like any aspect of that movie. Yes, it's professionally made and there's lots of money behind it, but Spielberg's approach, the way he and Kaminski told the story had no effect on me (save for a few shots here and there) and even rubbed me the wrong way. A 'similar' movie that worked much, much better, IMO, is Cloverfield. It doesn't have good dialogue, nor interesting characters, but the visual storytelling pulled me in and nicely compensated for all the film's weaknesses.

If Abrams have signed up with Warner and DC for a movie I would prefer him to make a Supergirl movie than  another Superman movie. We already have 6 with him and other TV shows.

Plus I have to admit that I secretly hope JJ baby to make a Supergirl movie starring Daisy baby. It would be the perfect combination to lure somebody....... ;)
