1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Casting is basically giving us the middle finger at this point

    They're going for a younger John Shea Luthor from Lois & Clark.

    Why not? Zuckerberg and Luthor are both evil, no? And if you picture Lex in todays world, wouldn't you imagine Zuckerberg minus the suits? He is Lex in a hoody. :lol:

    All jokes aside; Diane Lane as Ma Kent is the most convincing, best part of the DC film universe. And judging from the casting announcements thus far, it will stay that way. Seriously, rewatch MoS and tell me that scene with Martha consoling young Clark at school wasn't the best part of that movie.

    Actually, if I were picturing the most evil man in modern society, I think he'd look a lot more like Sergey Brin.

    I'd think he would look more like Steve Jobs.

    I've seen a lot of complaints online about him being "too young" to play Lex. Thing is Henry Cavill and Jesse Eisenberg are exactly the same age. 30.

    Eisenberg just looks young in the eyes of a lot of people. That could change with a shaved head.

    I thought this movie was a dumb idea to begin with because it reeks of desperation to have a blockbuster. What I can't get past is the "why" make this movie?

    Superman would never need Batman's help. I just can't imagine a scenario where Batman could add real assistance to the film. Then you make another critical error by bringing in Wonder Woman (which has to be an effort to either grab female viewers or pervs). Is Wonder Woman going to fly in on her invisible plane? An Amazon warrior who happens to be tech savvy enough to know how to fly a plane, and even more so an invisible one.

    Affeck as Batman...ehhh. The only thing I hate about the idea is seeing Batman wearing Affleck's half smile...where he smiles with one half of his mouth. Affleck takes Batman from dark and troubled to cocky and brash. But then again who though Michael Keaton would have pulled it off (one my my favorite actors).

    This was a terrible idea to begin with. I am guessing they pushed back the release because they are conflicted with how in the hades are they going to write scenes for Batman when Superman can do everything Batman can do plus fly, dodge bullets, withstand the heat of the sun, move at near light speed, reverse time, bend steel, lift a city into space, hear things from miles away, see through objects, use heat vision...and the list seemingly goes on forever.

    Which by the way is the reason it's so hard to write a good Superman movie...he's too powerful and other than a green rock you got nothing on him.

    The one thing Batman has on Superman is his superior intellect. Maybe they'll use that to help figure some plot that Lex hatched up.

    Agreed, but I want to give Affleck/Eisenberg a chance.

    It's clear that WB/DC is desperately trying to play catch up with Marvel. The only problem is that, unlike Marvel, WB/DC wants to create essentially a huge blockbuster (which they will get with this film, no doubt), but also to establish all of the characters in one film rather than Marvel's carefully planned standalone films (e.g. Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, etc.).

    The most jarring thing really is the combo of Snyder/Goyer. Goyer still hasn't proven to be a strong writer. Marvel won when they snatched up almost every major actor and Whedon/team. Again, this goes back to their well-executed plan. I'm looking forward to the Dr. Strange film as well as GoTG.
