Plus the hack that Zack Snyder was which people thought was a good to have in charge.

To me Shazam! and its sequel along with Black Adam I'll treat as standalone films.

Do you have a thing against Zack Snyder??

Shazam was easily the weakest DCEU film next to SS, too comedic and kiddy and definitely not what the DCEU should thrive for.


OK, I can tolerate the usual "muh overly gritty and lifeless in the name "realism"" handjob most Synder defense is but that right there is a load of poop.

Shazam! is a fun and inspiring film that made me give a poop about characters in a superhero film in a LONG time, let alone one I have no prior connection with.

If anything, it's EXACTLY what the DCEU should be trying to achieve: characters that inspire people, not "messed up" assholes because I'm too cynical to actually consider the possibility that there's such a thing as good in the world.

In your opinion.

Don't treat like its a fact though and let people have their opinions. What made it fun is it was light-hearted fun and throwback to the golden age comics with a 90's feel to it and basically Guardians of the Galaxy in terms of tone and humor and Doctor Strange with magic. I don't think it was meant to be taken seriously.

You say too comedic yet give Thor: Ragnarok a pass. To me this is what Thor: Ragnarok should had been in terms of humor at least it lets serious moments happen or emotional moments sink in without being interrupted by a joke. It also had a heart to it.

At least IMO. To me Shazam! is the best DCEU let alone DC movie to date and much look forward to its sequel and Black Adam.


My dude, take it to the DC thread.

If the Wolverine vs. The Hulk rumors are correct, I’m beyond excited, what a cool way to incorporate the character into the MCU.

Wolverine first showed up in issue 181 of THE INCREDIBLE HULK to take on the Green Goliath. So it seems like an apropos flick introduce Weapon-X to the MCU.

Although I'd love to see it, I doubt we'd be getting this scene in the flick.

Also, if I was doing the publicity for the flick, the poster should be based on the Todd McFarlane drawn cover for issue 340 of INCREDIBLE HULK.

While I love the idea of Wolverine vs. Hulk being a movie, how would one make Hulk go back to the big green rage monster that he was before Smart Hulk became a thing?

I was wondering this myself, the best I can come up with on a seconds notice is either prequel story or alternate versions since Endgame opened that realm of possibilities

Also, while everyone is hyped up about X-Men and bummed about Spider-man, it seems a lot are forgetting about the Fantastic Four. So I just have to wonder, how would you cast the four, Silver Surfer and Doctor Doom...? I myself would LOVE to see Andrew Lincoln play Mr. Fantastic and Jeffrey Dean Morgan play Doctor Doom. Yes, I am basing this on their acts from The Walking Dead. They have such great chemistry together.

Smart Hulk is easy to break just like he was broken in the comics. Something happens to Bruce and he let's Hull takeover again.

I don't get why people see a couple bad movies (SM3 and ASM2 from what I've heard) and assume Sony is somehow going to ruin the character especially after how skreeonking great Spider-verse was.


Sony is headed by Tom Rothman, who, as the head of Fox, droveout Byran Singer from X-Men 3, gave us Wolerine: Origins which, according to the rumors, he pestered the director to the point where he quit halfway and the movie was made without one from then one ordered Deapool's mouht to be stiched shut, greenlit the Tim Story F4 movies as well as Fant4stic. To be fair, that one turned out to be 'whole team effort' in how bad it was.

Not only that, but Avi Arad is a sterotypical old man who doesn't have his touch anymore.


Not to mention Spiderverse only turned out as great as it did because Sony handed it off to their smaller Animation studio and were too busy ruining the Emoji Movie to get actively involved. Tom Rothman and Avi Arad had nothing to do with it for that exact same reason. Any future live-action Spidey films won't be so lucky, they'll be on those like white on rice. Just like they were Spider-Man 3, TASM 1 and 2, Venom and both Ghost Rider movies and look how those turned out, lol.

Rothman also hired BRETT RATNER (!) of all people to direct The Last Stand, another one of his idiot moves at Fox.

Avi Arad was actually a huge part of Spider-Verse. His background before Sony was in Spider-Man cartoons, which he excels at. He's very passionate in Spider-Man despite his skreeonk ups with Spider-Man 3 and the Garfield movies.

I'm very excited for Morbius, Venom 2, and Spiderman Homecoming 3.

In the leaked Sony emails, they had planned Spiderman 2099, The Last Hunt, and the Clone saga, which could be awesome if done right. Spiderman is going to be just fine. Maybe even better than he was at Marvel.

Spider-Man was banking billions with Marvel, I highly doubt that

Not saying Sony couldn't be successful with the IP, but what he made with the MCU is nothing to scoff at.
