    Both are decent movies, I don't get why some people are actively avoiding those.

    I went for Orm mostly because he felt the most identifiable.

    Went with Sivana, largely due to Strong’s performance. Ares wasn’t in WW enough to really have an impact. Zod probably would have won easily for me if Shannon (who is typically excellent) had been better. He had some good moments but overall I found him over the top, like he wasn’t taking the material seriously.

    Mark Strong is a superb villain - always an excellent casting choice. Loved his performances in Stardust and Kick Ass.

    Speaking of Strong, I just realised who's missing from the poll... Sinestro, not technically part of the DCEU but the only good thing about the GL movie, he oozed refined menace in that film, I doubt anyone could have done it better.

    Yeah, it’s truly a shame that we didn’t get to see Strong in full Sinestro mode... maybe if they had used him as the main villain in GL instead of Hector, the movie would have been good or at least a little better. Still, Reynolds just wasn’t the right choice for Hal, and the writing and special effects were pretty bad overall, so maybe it’s good that Strong only had a small role in that film.

    Thankfully it seems Strong can and probably will come back as Sivanna, even for just a cameo.

    I really liked Strong as Sivana. Not a deeply written villain, by any means, but he brought a real sense of pain and resentment that added to him, I felt.

    I agree on Strong as Sinestro. Had he ever gotten the chance to play the Sinestro Corps leader, I have no doubt that his performance would have been lauded as one of the greatest. However, he couldn't be classified as a villain in GL. He was an egotistical hero, which is a label that applies to most Green Lanterns.

    I think his character (Dr. Sivanna) has chance to be developed further in sequels.

    The poll is clearly kneeling before Zod!

    Definitely seems that way, an under rated villain overall for me.

    I don't think Zod was anything special in the grand sea of CBM villains. But among the DCEU ones he's a shark in a pond.

    I really enjoy Michael Shannon loved him in that Iceman movie for some reason didn't really like him as Zod probably down to never being a big Superman fan I don't know much about the character.

    I get chills every time that I watch MOS and he says, " I exist only to protect Krypton. That is the sole purpose for which I was born. And every action I take, no matter how violent, or how cruel, is for the greater good of my people. And now, I have no people."

    Yeah I think a lot of this stuff was probably wasted on me because id dint really know the character that well or his enemies.

    Supergirl's show has done a great job in getting me to warm to the house of El.

    Haven't seen all the films. Out of those I've seen I go with Zod by default.

    Me too man. I feel some of his lines are totally under rated or often less appealing because how little dialogue we got from him for the first 2 acts.

    Some of the lines are the only villain outside of the TDK and infinity war(thanos) quality execution and written lines of cbms. I always felt orms were much weaker for Aquaman.

    Speaking for myself, I wanna watch both of them a lot (especially Shazam). But I haven't gotten to watching them, AND I unfortunately just never go to the movies. :csad:

    You can watch Aquaman (which is a good movie in my opinion.) on streaming service or rent/buy some Bluray/DVD. I'm sure Shazam will be available for streaming in few months too.

    Perhaps because I'm not interested in them? Wild concept, I know. That's not me "actively avoiding" them, it's me not interested enough to watch them. :hehe:

    What I wanted to say is that you watched CM and quality can be subjective too, so maybe what you think is not interesting might turn out as interesting (or maybe not), but you can always give it a chance, but ultimately whether to watch it or not is your choice.

    Why I'm saying this ? Because I see many posters on SHH that think that Aquaman and Shazam look uninteresting, I just want people to give it some chance.
