DC Films The DC Studios News and Discussion Thread

Nope. Can't say I agree with that at all. Whether Superman 1978, Man of Steel, or Superman and Lois, I enjoy them all, with Man of Steel being my favorite Superman film, though I think Hoechlin might have the best portrayal of both Clark and Superman, with that show nailing a lot about Clark and his family dynamic. But I'll leave it at that since I know many a-person here detest Man of Steel with a passion. But I love it and make no apologies for it no more than I would apologize for liking Superman 1978 or Superman and Lois.
To be clear, there are some elements of MoS that I like quite a bit. But there are many elements of it that I think miss the mark of what makes the character who he is. But I by no means fault anyone who likes the film and that was not my intention.
To me, MoS is a different take on the characters. And it doesn’t line up enormously well with how he and other characters are routinely portrayed in the comics. That’s all right, some people may like that better. But I personally am invested in how Superman is portrayed in the comics and the deviations didn’t land very well with me. But I accept that they might land better with someone else.

Yeah, that never happened.

Side note I wish that Ben Wyatt line was a gif.
 
I’m not a huge Aronofsky fan and this rumour is straight up lies but this is the kind of thing I actually want from a James Gunn DCU. **** the Trinity, gimme Plastic Man! Animal Man! The Question! Etrigan!
 
Plastic Man does seem like a fun property to adapt though. Wouldn’t have thought it, but I ended up really liking the character during the JLA run with Morrison & Waid

I do think DCU will find somewhere else to put Wonder Woman instead of a solo franchise (though I don’t necessarily agree). Maybe in another period piece with the JSA or maybe something in the magic realm—we already have Swamp Thing in development.

Been waiting for a Question movie for a long time. I guess it could be a series in today’s world
 
I’m sure Gunn will give us some great off the wall properties in his universe. I imagine it would all be too boring for him otherwise. At the same time he has to get the staple characters including the Trinity right, and he surely knows that given that he’s taken on the responsibility of Supes himself.
 
I still think there’s opportunity in properties like Blackhawks and Challengers of the Unknown. Gunn and Safran could even slap an Elseworlds label on either and attract some big name talent. We know Spielberg was interested at one point

It’s funny, but while I love the concept of the character, the execution really leaves him unlikable. It’s one of the few characters that I hated in Mark Waid’s stellar run.

If we could get a Question adaptation that is a mix between Denny O’Neil’s original run and the way that Greg Rucka wrote him in Huntress: Cry for Blood, I’d be a very happy man. One thing is for certain: I need Richard Dragon to be in it.
