  1. Nobody knew or cared about the Guardians and Ant...

    Nobody knew or cared about the Guardians and Ant Man specifically before their films, and the films did a good job of making the general audience care about them. They don't care about faithfulness...

    I gave it a 2 overall, mostly for STAS. And even there, he's more middle of the road with some good moments and I like Daly's voice. But he's never "great," and really the stand outs from that series...
  3. I think BvS is a big disappointment for me...

    I think BvS is a big disappointment for me because I was incredibly hyped to finally see my three favorite superheroes on the big screen together, and I really liked MoS at the time and defended it...

    Agreed. It's not like the writing was that good outside of a handful of books (Swamp Thing, NTT, Legion), but that proves the mythos wasn't the problem, just the writers.

    Even reading those, it's...

    I think he has a clear love for comics and is making the movies he wants to make. It's just that the comics he prefers and the interpretations he puts out there don't land with everyone and are not...

    Did he actually though? I don't know if non-whites were showcased that much, and if they were they weren't presented favorably (there is the infamous WWII propaganda "Slap a J**!" piece). BUT, that's...

    It would seem odd for Byrne to have a grudge against Kirby but insist on using his creations a lot (like using the Demon to a ridiculous degree in Wonder Woman). And using an expy of Kirby's real...

    It's a shame WB likely wouldn't go for it, because it actually is a great reconstructive take that celebrate all that Superman stands for. I can understand them being extra cautious and going back to...
  9. Johns can be very hit and miss, but I think it...

    Johns can be very hit and miss, but I think it ends up being more miss (or just "ok") the further into his career we go. His original Flash run with Wally is still my favorite thing by him, and his...

    When I saw the Lighthouse, the questions on human-mermaid...relations is pretty graphically answered.

    And my mind immediately went to Clark and Lori during the scene in question lol.

    That one goes back to her creator though, at least in one form.

    Agree about the beheading bit.

    IDK, stories by authors like Perez, Jimenez and Rucka at least seem to touch upon the bigger reasons why wars happen, while largely avoiding Diana using a sword (or using it very sparingly). She also...

    Wonder Woman is not just a character though, she is a walking symbol/archetype, so the symbolism should at least be considered. Man's world weapons and war are associated in WW strips with Mars, the...

    This is all more than fair and my first statement was pretty insensitive, so I will retract it.

    It was important for a few stories I guess, but I wasn't even aware that the bolded was a thing. But that kind of just proves that him being Perry's peer isn't that important or stood the test of...

    It's not important for Lex to be 20 years older. For all intents and purposes, it's not a tidbit that has stood the test of time anyway, they mostly treat them as around the same age even in...

    Even Lex moving into that role could have been done in the pre-COIE continuity without much tweaking.

    Our country could really use a well done Golden Age/New 52 style, unapologetic Anti-establishment Superman movie right now. He's more relevant than ever.

    And some "Batman protecting Gotham...

    It's a couple throw away lines that is mainly to reveal Diana's power, and not put much focus on Zeus himself. He's a posthumous plot device, not a character. Meanwhile, the Amazons actually receive...

    In fairness to the movie, Zeus being her father doesn't get too much focus and more time is spent showing the Amazons raising and training her. And while we are getting at least another flashback to...

    Oh yeah, they would definitely screw it up.

    I would love writers to not write Bruce that way and keep going forward, but I also know fans and certain writers would pick at the scab and refuse to...

    Yep, so far two of the named Amazons are obscure ones from Perez's first annual. It wouldn't surprise me if we many more from Perez at least, if not some of the later ones.

    So far we have:...

    We wouldn't need a Year One retread. We all know the origins by now, they could take a BTAS approach and just set it somewhat early on in Batman's career and go forward. No origins necessary.

    I don't think the attempt at a stable relationship with a normal woman is going to offer much for the woman in question. Beyond the obvious (he's rich and hot, and the mystery man crime fighter thing...

    It's not even just recent events; there isn't much in post-COIE-to-present canon for Bruce that I would lose much sleep over being tossed out and getting a fresh start. I don't want to be miserable...
