From Mark Hughes via Forbes, check it out:
I still strongly believe they should’ve called it the DC Filmic Universe, or… DCFU! In other news, Dan Didio is the Burger King this week.
I think the DC movies are back on track, not that they were ever off. I think it’s a nice change that Aquaman and Wonder Woman are now the MVPs instead of Batty and Supey, but does it rub anyone else the wrong way that we can’t seem to get a Flash movie off the ground, or Green Lantern? If only they had waited or not jumped the gun with that Ryan Reynolds monstrosity, we’d have a GL succeeding with Flash in succession. They couldn’t even have put John Stewart in Justice League? I mean, wouldn’t have hurt. The one I’m looking forward to most, with no footage seen yet, is Joker, and Birds of Prey looks interesting. Here’s the short tease if you missed it, but they seriously better not call it “The Emancipation of Harley Quinn” like everyone seems to want to report. Like seriously, that title is a nightmare. Percy Jackson Price of Persia: Rise of the Sands of the Age of the Crimes of Grindelwald never gets a movie off to the right start. Keep it short and simple, no need to have a subtitle in hopes of getting a sequel out of it. And Margot is truly not really 28, is she? She subtracted a few years in real life to freshen up a bit, surely.
And also, this can’t be true… Robbie as Batman?? Why must we always alternate between a stiff pale Brit (Bale) and a loudmouth American goon (Ben) as Batman? Someone normal would be nice for a change.
Anyway, happy belated Valentine’s Day! To mark the occasion, here’s the stupidest panel ever from Jeph Loeb in Spider-Man: Blue:
If I knew Peter Parker was Spider-Man and wanted to find him on Valentine’s Day, seriously, the FIRST and ONLY place I’d look would be on the top of that damn bridge! Remember when J. Michael and Mark Millar had two stories where Mary Jane was thrown off the bridge (and he “did it right” this time) that came out within months of each other? No bridges! They should throw Aunt May off a bridge, maybe this time Peter could sell his virginity to the devil to save her? Sounds like a Slotto story.
