JL sounds promising, but I hope it's not hammed up in a deliberate attempt to compensate for how pathetically dark BvS was. Much better for DC to just take a step back and correct course rather than swerving the wheel the complete opposite way.

No way it will swerve that far. It's still got Snyder at the wheel and he's the guy who worked on project that pushed forth the notion that the red in WW's costume is centuries worth of congealed blood from dead enemies. uhoh.gif

Snyder’s interest in hardcore-skewing comic-book violence has always been evident: His first three genre movies earned a hard R for mayhem, Man of Steel was criticized for its cavalier depiction of city-leveling apocalypse, and when Batman v Superman makes its way to home video with an extended director’s cut, that version will be R-rated, too. The question, then, is whether Snyder’s sensibility can truly be tweaked enough to suit a mainstream, four-quadrant audience turned off by Batman v Superman’s unrelenting grimness. The sets we saw were still dark and rubble-strewn, and most of the costumes on display treated their comic-book counterparts’ bright colors as only a faint suggestion. Wonder Woman’s suit was a rare exception to both the muted aesthetic and the visit’s positive-skewing message: At one point, costume designer Michael Wilkinson told us that the red in Wonder Woman’s costume had been enriched for this film because “We always talk about it as almost like centuries of congealed blood from her victims on her breastplate.” At that remark, a journalist next to me muttered, “Wow.”

My gut tells me this will be used as a transitional film. You will see a lighter tone then BvS or MoS, but it won't be so far removed from what we have seen before that it feels alien to the universe. After JL, we will start seeing more and more fresh takes as DC tries to find the right "tone" for them moving forward. Personally I hope they don't try and pigeon hold themselves into a house style as much as Marvel seems to want to.

I'd like them to get closer to the tv DC universe. Not as light and occasionally silly as The Flash, but more in line with Arrow, which balances humor and grimness pretty well.

Lolololol. Ok.

How much money did they toss his way? I know he's not the most in demand actor in Hollywood but this seems like a surprising choice.

When it comes to CBMs or almost any sci-fis films, Cranstons actually almost always wanted by fanboys.

From Jim Gordon to Lex Luthor, from Norman Osborne to Adrian Toomes, he's one of those guys that has just skyrocketed ever since Breaking Bad.

It was kind of a surprising choice but he actually has a history with Power Rangers, he used to do voiceovers for the monsters so it's probably one of those nostalgia things for him?

Spielberg Says Lucas Will Be Involved Creatively in New ‘Indiana Jones’ Film

Indiana Jones originally had two creative fathers in Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, and Spielberg says that’s “absolutely” not going to change with the forthcoming fifth Indy film.

“George is going to be an executive producer on it with me,” the filmmaking icon told reporters on Monday during a press roundtable for his upcoming film “The BFG,” when it was suggested that — following the 2012 sale of the Lucasfilm properties to The Walt Disney Company and Lucas’ reported retirement from producing films — that Spielberg would make the recently announced fifth Indiana Jones film without his longtime friend and collaborator.

“Of course — I would never make an ‘Indiana Jones’ film without George Lucas,” Spielberg said. “That would be insane.”

The two moviemaking legends first concocted the film that would eventually become “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” the 1981 film that kicked-off the retro-flavored action franchise, while vacationing together in Hawaii during the 1977 release of Lucas’ original “Star Wars.” At the apex of their early Hollywood careers, they built out Lucas’ notion of a movie serial-style adventurer into a boundary-pushing stunt-driven blockbuster under Spielberg’s direction.

They also collaborated on each of the subsequent three sequels, and Spielberg promised that for the fifth outing, “George will be inputted in it.”

The director also noted that, while Lucas was not directly involved in the production of last year’s revival of the “Star Wars” franchise, his creative vision clearly informed the new film.

“George Lucas’ fingerprints are on ‘The Force Awakens,'” Spielberg pointed out, “because that movie is an homage to Episode IV, V and VI - a complete homage. George Lucas is all over ‘The Force Awakens.’ Lest we ever forget that.”

The as-yet untitled fifth “Indiana Jones” film is scheduled for release on July 19, 2019.

and people still wonder why this film is being hated before release?

That song is garbage.
post #3281 of 3808
A shitty song does not necessarily make a shitty movie.

But that is fucking terrible. Like really, epically awful.

(and I'm confident that the movie will be shit, too)

As a person who played Pokemon generations 1-3, I'm pretty stoked for the newest game to come. Really don't want to buy the 3DS though, and there's no online emulator yet either

Pokemon needs to just come out on the Wii U already!

And not some fighting tourney type of game.

I wish you could just buy for the PC - don't care if the graphics are the same. I don't want to pay $175 for some crappy upgraded gameboy I'll never use for anything else
