WB needs to stop announcing things unless they are already in production.

Awesome. More announcements. So exciting.

But at least there will be Aquaman trailer, it seems.

I doubt DC is worth any more than the 4 billion Disney paid for Marvel, and that isn't vast sums of money for this scale of corporate business. It'd really come down to a decision as to whether retaining DC was worth it for a company struggling after a failed merger or not. My gut says not.



Amazon have the cash to pay for DC once every day of the week, and twice on Sunday. And they are desperate for IP. I have no knowledge whatsoever about a specific interest in purchasing DC, but I can absolutely assure you that they are very, very keen on acquiring existing, popular IP to boost the content on the Amazon Video streaming platform.

If DC goes up for sale, Amazon are one of the most likely buyers, without a doubt.
Agreed, amazon has not only bought Lotr they have also bought the dark tower and Conan the barbarian and you can bet they will make very expensive tv shows out of these franchises. Amazon prime video in 2-3 years will be very different than the one today.

MCU & Disney rarely release a trailer 8 months in advance nowadays. DC released JL teaser and invited bloggers one year before the release of JL, this strategy fails to buildup hype and results in trailers that give away most of the scenes months in advance.

So, I doubt we will see Aquaman trailer.

At this point nothing would surprise me w Cavill's Superman. This Superman has clearly not been an audience favorite thus far and I don't think anyone outside of these circles is clamoring for another installment, but the character is an immensely valuable IP off iconography alone. It could go either way and I wouldn't be surprised.

I’d be more surprised if we got one.

We’re at the point now where everything that’s even somewhat in development is being reported on by legitimate sources, but all Superman has gotten are rumors. It almost feels like everyone BIT Superman has some momentum behind them.

And I’ll say it again... after Justice League, no-one outside that very small selection of fans cares about Cavill’s Superman. What financial sense does it make to pour millions into another Superman movie with the same guy who had been in - for one reason or another - three mediocre or poor Superman movies, that left people cold? I understand fully a rebooted Superman, away from Snyder’s version. I don’t understand the logic of keeping that version going at this stage. It doesn’t make financial sense.

That’s why I said I could see them treating it as a soft reset. Ignore the last few movies and possibly recast.

There's nothing wrong with Cavill; it was the way he was wrote. He's fine to play Superman.

After the flop that is Snyder's DCEU I doubt any DC movie (aside from WW) is a worthwhile investment but if Aquaman, Shazam and WW2 are all hits then people *might*, just might be more excited for another superman or batman movie.

I'd think people will always be excited at the prospect of another Batman or Superman movie, it's just if it doesn't conform to what they want out of it, then there's trouble.

There's only a very specific number of things I'd want to see out of those two characters moving forward; in a Batman film, Deathstroke would need to play the main villain as I can imagine fight scenes between them to be nothing short of epic - if done right. I'd also think a Batman film would be the perfect opportunity to introduce the likes of Green Arrow, Black Canary, Catwoman, Ivy, Huntress & Batgirl into the DCEU; further opening up the potentials for a Gotham City Sirens and/or Birds of Prey film.

As for Superman, again, very specifically, I'd either want them to introduce Supergirl to the DCEU with a story that involves Brainiac as the main villain, or I'd want Superman to find his enemy in Black Adam, ultimately bringing Superman and Shazam together in a film - further promoting the DCEU.

I would be completely okay with WB killing the shared universe idea. Only if they give a justice league still. It didn't have to involve actors from the solo movies, it can be like JL mortal where it's existence doesn't rely on anyone else. Or if they do keep the shared universe, you don't have to go through the hoops of telling us it's shared. Just bring them together for JL and we would know.

I would rather they keep the shared universe but just go about it in a different way similar to Marvel. Follow Marvel's model but do it in a way that you stay faithful to the DC comics source material.

It won't happen, but I'd pretty much give anything to see Cavill's Superman show up on a couple episodes of Krypton and face off against Brainiac. I don't even care if he ever shows up in a movie again. Just give me that and I'll be happy.
