You might be waiting a while. WB are s*** at announcing things.
Oh but they released a statement saying they respect Cavill and have a good relationship with him. Didn't say a word about him staying on as Superman though. In other words they said a whole lot of nothing.
...you wait until all the Snyderites realise that Cavill quitting means they’re absolutely certain to never see their Snyder cut of JL....
*WB Release Statement*
Maybe I should have been clear: I'm saying I don't believe that he doesn't see any similarity between Guardians and SS. It was blatantly clear well before SS premiered that's what they were going for.
I have zero faith in WB.
It would take a nolan, spielburg, or abrams type of director to get me excited again.
The kind of director that we know wouldn't screw things up but would have the power to tell WB to leave him alone.
I don't see there being a political agenda. Then again women's empowerment or "girl power" has never been an issue for me. Perhaps it's due to being secure in my masculinity or living in a country where equal rights for men and women is the norm. I'm just pleased to see a comic book tv show respecting the comic origins and style so much. Arrow went so overboard with "gritty" that it became tiresome/dull. Supergirl is refreshing in that sense. Plus a Jay & Silent Bob cameo never hurts.
Goodbye DCCU, we hardly knew ye.
Kill it, restart it with Nolan and Bale. Yes, I'm saying it. Fight me.
I laughed when I read the news. Stick to the cartoons guys. Justice League: The New Frontier is on Hulu!
Your condescension didn't go unnoticed, dawg. The rest I agree with.
I read it more as throwing shade than condescension.
If you can't see the political agenda pushed by Supergirl and now Batwoman, then you need some glasses
EDIT: I don't appreciate the implication that my apprehension of the liberal agenda pushed by Supergirl (and now Batwoman) can easily be explained by an insecurity in my own masculinity. I generally have a liberal outlook, but I think Supergirl handles certain topics aggressively sometimes, and it can feel jarring and out of place when I'm just trying to watch a superhero show. Even if I agree with the ideas. But considering the current state of the internet and society at large, I'm sure everyone would love to make me out to be some alt-right a*****e, when that couldn't be farther from the truth. This very argument represents my issue with modern society. If you don't agree with 100% of the liberal agenda, you're insecure in your masculinity or worse, an alt right fascist. What happened to balanced opinions? It's really a shame, and thankfully this mindset hasn't really pervaded this side of the internet too badly yet.
Keep Gal Gadot & her solo films as canon Keep Miller, Fisher & Momoa as their characters (and the Aquaman film in canon) Start fresh with Superman, Batman & the League coming together
If they are getting rid of Cavill I would hope they get rid of Miller who sucked
Cavill's exit, and the response to it , reminds me very much of what happened with Andrew Garfield 's ouster as Spiderman. You basically had an actor who was for the most part , favored by fans, but was saddled with polarizing films , due to studio interference, which really didn't appeal that much to general audiences.
Both films series tried to take a darker reboot approach to lighter toned characters only in the end to try to shoehorn shared universes and multiple characters. While Garfield got a direct sequel he had to share the screen with multiple characters, subplots, and clunky set ups for a shared universe. Cavill didn't get a direct sequel but ended up having to share the screen with multiple characters, subplots, and clunky set ups for a shared universe.
Then , in order to move forward from those films, and they mistakes they made, the studio decides to ditch the actor much to the backlash of fans.
I don't know if that means the next Superman actor will be as praised and embraced by general audiences, fans, and critics, as Tom Holland's Spiderman has been, but there certainly seem to be more than a few parallels between Andrew Garfield and Henry Cavill.
I think there is a difference. On Garfield’s case, Spider-Man was going to join the MCU which made everyone overwhelmingly excited. Here we don’t know what WB’a future plans really are and what we hear doesn’t sound very promising
Incidentally the the story WB should have look for the overall tone of their movie universe.
Given this is the most talked about Supes has been in a while, WB needs to take this time to announce that Henry is staying and that a sequel is underway with a 2020 release date.
I don't watch those shows.
So vague. It's either in tribute to his time in the role, saying he's sticking around or is actually part of his negotiating to get a better deal from WB to stay?
I officially have no idea who or what to believe
Well now the entire thing stinks of a negotiating tactic.
Still think it's a whole bunch of noise for nothing.
Yup, that’s the gut feeling I get as well
Henry and his manager got the reaction they were looking for, we’ll see if WB softens their stance after this
Definite negotiation ploy. Drum up support online. Side note, we can post Instagram posts too now? I clearly missed that announcement.
