  1. I'm actually very curious about what direction...

    I'm actually very curious about what direction that film would have taken. As you say, Deathstroke pretty much only makes sense as an antagonist if you're going to focus heavily on action (although...
  2. I'm OK with the Nigma as his original name as...

    I'm OK with the Nigma as his original name as well, but changing to it fits with Riddler's character as I see it. It's a small, silly and petulant attempt to try to bend the world to his (insane)...

    I think Chuck Dixon introduced that retcon in the comics some time in the 90's. I quite like it.
  4. I agree about Future's End being terrible, but...

    I agree about Future's End being terrible, but surely Batman Eternal was always going to be 52 issues, covering a whole year? I remember that being a big USP and part of the marketing from the start.
  5. WB marketed the hell out of it, probably for way...

    WB marketed the hell out of it, probably for way more than $55 million, and it wouldn't surprise me if Phoenix has some kind of percentage on the box office take. Still impressive though.
  6. I don't know who any of those characters are,...

    I don't know who any of those characters are, although I'm guessing Mongal has something to do with Mongul?
  7. That's my point, genuinely believing that you're...

    That's my point, genuinely believing that you're a great enough guy to be the best option bar none to rule a country is something I associate with Doom rather than someone like Aquaman, even if he's...

    It's an easy way for writers to do palace intrigue in a while, but the "good monarch" trope has very much worn out its welcome for me. It's a great fit for guys like Doctor Doom, not so much a hero...

    It's one of few blockbuster mystery-type stories in recent memory that actually has a decent and satisfying conclusion, and it was fun following it week-to-week, but you could easily tear out a...
  10. ...or maybe people just didn't enjoy a film and...

    ...or maybe people just didn't enjoy a film and don't think adding more of the same to it would make them like it more? That's psychopathic?

    Anyway, re. test screenings, David F. Sandberg who...
  11. I just want to post this educated guess for...

    I just want to post this educated guess for posterity: Matt Reeves' Batman film is a loose adaptation of, or at least takes elements from, Broken City, and Jonah Hill is playing Arnold Wesker/The...

    It's the early 00's, so of course Bruce wears cool guy Oakley's while doing science...

    Yeah, I'm not impressed either. Tynion seems like a very decent and sweet guy, but his DC stuff just never seems to go above tepid for me. Which probably has a lot to do with him having to work under...

    Lex Luthor cooking up a plan with Owlman of the Crime Syndicate while he was a serving member of the Justice League in Geoff Johns' run.

    Whatever state Gotham City is situated in doesn't have the death penalty.
  16. It's not so much about Harley Quinn as it's about...

    It's not so much about Harley Quinn as it's about Margot Robbie. She could be playing any och the characters in this film, and they would be the main focus and have their name in the title.
  17. I don't think The Long Halloween holds up as well...

    I don't think The Long Halloween holds up as well as many of you remember it, and most of the strongest parts of it has already been shown on screen in The Dark Knight. I'm guessing this is just...

    FWIW, Telltale Batman requires very little experience with video games, there are very few gameplay related challenges and is more like an interactive film or comic book. If you enjoyed the companion...

    I think Nelson Jent and Roxie Hodder of China Miéville's Dial H fit the description. Both good characters in a good series, but just a bit too weird (while also being too normal, if that makes sense)...

    Would it have been as King's successor, or was this earlier?
  21. Excellent, thanks.

    Excellent, thanks.
  22. Riddler gets jacked by the Lazarus pit, and the...

    Riddler gets jacked by the Lazarus pit, and the one running around in Gotham during the movie is not him, just a mind-controlled Clayface masquerading as regular Riddler. So it kind of works.
  23. U KANT PLAY ---- and then the part with the...

    U KANT PLAY ---- and then the part with the cameras is of course ALDEN, but what's the middle part? I'm struggling to fit ROOK or KNIGHT in there.

    There was also, kind of stealthily, a lot of...
  24. Foxx is amazing as a villain in Baby Driver, but...

    Foxx is amazing as a villain in Baby Driver, but I'm not sure if that performance is close in tone to any major Batman villains I can think of. Esposito could probably play any evil mastermind type,...

    Editors haven't been keepers of continuity for a long time, that's a vestige from when new and old stories weren't readily available for a writer to look through when they wanted to check something....
