Yes, lots of potential for great story telling, especially in the current age.

If I were someone of relevance that's the film I'd be gunning for hard. So much untapped potential even if it's a "comic-faithful" adaptation.

I'm not sure Cyborg can carry a movie. I've liked him for a while but he doesn't really have a rogues gallery or supporting cast. That can be fixed by giving him a villain from another hero of course, but I dunno. He's always struck me as a team player. It'd be like doing a Beast Boy or Speedy movie, imo.

Still want Amy dropped, she is a bad Lois and can't do the role right. Her "*%&+ measuring" comment made no sense in context of that situation but I think if given more time and interaction it could have worked but at the same time I doubt Amy could play it right.

Now, If Ant-Man can carry a movie, Cyborg certainly can.

There are many ways they could go with a Cyborg movie. Team up, solo mission, continuation or fleshing out of a Justice League storyline...

They can use Titans villains, they can use another DC Universe villain, they could even create one.

And I know Ray Fisher can carry a movie. Man can act.

That could be interesting if it's a prequel. They could explore her transition from male (Jimmy) to female (Jenny).

Jimmy or Jenny: A Superman Story.

I think the real potential is with Vic's "technopath" abilities, especially in the modern information age. Here's someone who has the ability to hack everything, to know everything about everyone, and perhaps he can't even turn this ability off. I think Cyborg is the perfect character to shine a light on the issues of communication and life in the modern connected social media age, and how people are becoming more and more ingrained with machines.

They could also have it so Vic can travel inside computer networks and it could be like Doctor Strange in a sense, with imaginative digital worlds and whatnot.

Snyder needs to shoot Jenny in the head in Justice League. The job of killing the Olsen's is only half finished.

She's one of the most lauded actresses working in Hollywood today. If WB can't get a good performance out of her, I'd say whoever is directing her and writing her dialogue need to be dropped instead.

I liked Amy Adams as Lois, but much like everyone else she gets some lousy dialogue to deliver in these films.

Cuz Lois is past her capabilities? Amy can do Lois no problem. Blame the writing and direction.

Amy is wonderful and like cavill she's been undone by Snyder's s***y direction and his team's (Goyer and Terrio) s***y writing.

Still cracking me up "she can't do the role right" - "i doubt Amy could play it right". Lois isn't a rocket scientist character to crack for an actress.

Good point. If Margot Kidder, Teri Hatcher, and Erica Durance can play a decent Lois Lane, actors who have never even been nominated for any significant film awards,
then a five time Academy Award nominated actor like Amy Adams should be able to do a decent Lois Lane given a proper script.
Amy Adams has also won two Golden Globes and was nominated for five more. And also won and been nominated for dozens more awards.

Just scroll down each list

Adams can play a feisty character just fine. Just look at her character in The Fighter.

It's all due to the direction, the script.

The criticisms thrown her way aren't traits that can just be feigned by an actor of any talent.

Charisma is arguably innate.

Wasn't Goyer the one who put all the abysmall "funny" scenes in Begins and the force feeding need to explain everything that we can see on screen?

-He's flying on rooftops.
-It's gonna blow! (that silly microwave emitter...)
etc?

'cause apart from those scenes Begins is easily my favourite of the trilogy.

Amy is a great Lois Lane. Her characterization is one of the better ones, where she actually gets work done, and is smart and independent. She plays it perfectly.

Exactly. Because she's being getting the shaft in both of those areas there, she ends up being a weak forgettable Lois Lane.

After seeing the extended cut of Suicide Squad, it's clear to me that WB needs to rethink their editing process. Like BvS, SS was merely good in the theater, but it's EC fixed several narrative flaws and the dialogue was better. The DCEU is actually in fine shape on DVD and Blu-ray, but I'm still scratching my heads at some of the essential elements that WB deems unimportant for their theatrical runs.
