One day into his reign as the creative head of DC Films, and Geoff Johns has already garnered more trust from me than in all the dark, dark days of Snyder running the show combined. I mean, it may blow up in my face. But so far, dude is saying all the right things.
The good news: Warner Bros. realizes they need to shake things up in their DC Films division. The bad news: they’ve chosen Geoff Johns (and Jon Berg). The good news: it can’t be any worse. The bad news: I’m not sure how much better it can get under his (their) stewardship.
We all knew this was coming. Or hoping for, at least. Now it’s confirmed.
Warner Bros. has set the dates for two as-of-yet-hyphen-unannounced-hyphen-DC films. If one of these fucking films isn’t a Solo BatFleck movie…well, I suppose I shouldn’t be shocked. Since, you know, comma, DC, comma, hasn’t done anything that has made sense to me yet.
Upon hearing news about J.K. Simmons being cast as Gordon in the JL movie, I realized something. There is literally nothing that can get me excited for this movie, save footage that temporarily dazzles me. I mean, I dig Simmons. I dig Gordon. But I ain’t hype.
I’m pretty excited for Suicide Squad. The latest trailer hooked me, with an irreverence and playfulness that I wasn’t expecting, and didn’t realize I was silently wanting. That said, I enjoyed the Man of Steel trailer. So what the fuck do I know/what the fuck can you really gleam from a trailer? None the less, the film is getting a sequel. With the director and Fresh Prince returning.
How is this for an absurd rumor & confirmation that the script for Batman v Superman is garbage (not that you probably needed any)? Apparently the Bat-Fleck would spend time on the Batman v Superman set, in his Bat-Suit, rewriting his dialogue and shit the day-of.
Some actor I’ve never heard of has been cast as the main character in one of the most overrated books I’ve read in years.
