I love Watchmen and didn't care for the film so I hope it's good. But mainly, I want it to be successful so that HBO becomes more open to other DC/Vertigo adaptations. It would be nice if WB's go-to destination for DC TV properties wasn't The CW.

I haven't seen Watchmen in a minute but I recall really enjoying it. This is making me want to revisit it.

I would be flabbergasted if there is any evil Superman for the simple fact that at every opportunity Johns has been chanting "HOPE OPTIMISM FUN! HOPE OPTIMISM FUN! HOPE OPTIMISM FUN!" An evil Superman literally is the opposite of what Johns has been preaching.

Also, more importantly, even from a basic story perspective, it doesn't make sense. At the end of BvS, the world finally came to accept Superman and everyone, Batman included, realized he's a good guy trying to do good things....only to come back in a black costume shooting lasers at the innocent bystanders all over Metropolis in a movie about "coming together?" That just puts everything back at square one. People would hate Superman again and it would prove Batman's 1% speech right. I don't buy it. Not at all.

You may not like or agree with his execution but it's pretty clear the 3 act story Snyder is crafting for Superman here (Life/Death/Rebirth) and it'll obviously end in him returning with people embracing him not being terrorized by him. I am 99.9% sure evil superman is BS.

Oh....I have a GREAT idea. Zod comes back to life and creates Bizarro Superman for most of the movie, but then.....

Oh never mind. I hope to wake up in the morning and find myself in the final scene of Inception.

He could only be mind-controlled evil Superman if the public didn't see it. If only the JL members saw him like that in some far off place.

Marvel on Netflix, DC on HBO. Sounds great to me

I mean I'm all for a director sticking to his vision, for good or bad, and not reacting to fans and pandering...

But after the criticism of the DCEU, specifically this Superman, making him a brainwashed bad guy for the majority of the film would be like film making seppuku.
You would think, but we will all probably show up anyway.

So how bad do you think the DC vs Marvel fan war will get come November? Both MCU and DCEU are releasing movies that month, 2 weeks apart no less! Should make for a fun time on social media that's for sure!

If the movies are both good we can join hands and be happy together.

Whedon going to work for DC can be kind of like how royal families in Europe used to have their offspring marry one another in order to form closer ties between countries.

Ummmmmm, sort of ;-)

Super excited for Thor and 3 months ago I could care less about JL but now I am intrigued by what's going on. Should be an interesting month.

Nobody posted here for 24 hours. Started to wonder where all the sane people went. This is the one thread I enjoy reading.

Only short sighted people who have nothing better to be happy about worry about "their" movie.

Idiots will be idiots. I want good movies and if a studio consistently puts out trash, I won't support them.

Prolly not going to watch $#!tFormers and didn't watch Frelltastic 4 because I want to see a good FF movie. I think it's silly to support hack jobs.

If Marvel and DC don't put aside their enmities and band together, then the genre will die. And then it won't matter whose skeleton sits atop the box office.
