You know it's funny how people always enter social embargo threads to say "it doesn't matter/they're always positive" etc pp. Just because it didn't seem to fit their wished outcome.

It's so transparent. Especially because it's not even true. We get negative impressions all the time.

The worst are the ones that suggest the critics posting impressions are just marks being swayed by getting to see the movie early. There was a lot of that going on with Aquaman.

And not to forget the part that critics fear fanboys and that‘s why they only post the positive stuff, wait for the negatives until the review embargo lifts.

Patty Jenkins on No Man's Land scene

https://editorial.rottentomatoes.com/article/most-memorable-movie-moments-no-mans-land-wonder-woman/

“We had finished the whole movie and we had scored it, and I got on the phone with everybody at the studio and all of the producers and said, ‘I need you to give me one more crack at No Man’s Land please.’ And I literally got them to bring all the musicians back into the studio – which is a very expensive and laborious thing to do – and I had our great composer, Rupert Gregson-Williams, write an entirely new piece for it based on a sort of hunch that I had that there was one step further [we could go]. And he actually ended up composing a whole new piece of music that we scored after we had locked everything, which is the score that went in right at the last minute. Everything in my gut told me that song was the right song, but then it was over, it was done, it was out of my hands and the movie was complete – so I really never got a chance to see [the No Man’s Land scene] and know it with an audience until very close to the premiere, when finally it was like, ‘Oh, that’s it. That is the scene. That’s as far as we got it. We can’t do better. We tried everything that we could to do better and there it is.’ And it was pretty incredible, honestly, the night of the premiere when people reacted the way that we did.”

Ok, but first let me explain the etymology of the word “fun” and go back months and years to see when this random critic has used it before and this is a totally normal thing to do and not at all creepshow behavior.

People are gonna say I’m crazy but a Superman from Lois’ POV would be great. Superman 1, MOS, and BvS had moments. But I mean, she’d ostensibly be the main character.

There’s still the idea of “Woman of Kleenex,” despite her more active role in MOS/BvS, but the comics have at times leaned into her being a reason why Superman can be Superman.
One of the many problems with the Snyder films was the focus on Lois when Goyer and Terrio couldn’t write a decent romantic relationship to save their lives. TDK trilogy romances sucked too so I don’t know why they decided to focus on them with Superman too. The next Superman film needs to focus on Superman.
Yes, and when they're gonna announce a new Superman movie that will mean that they know what they'll want to achieve. I can definitly see a Superman in this 'new universe'. I can be patient.
You’ll be waiting a while but at least continuing means we won’t have to suffer through Zod and Lex again. Maybe they’ll even recast Lex.

Yeah, I can see AMC as well as Regal now. Can't buy them yet, they're all grayed out. But the AMC literally a mile from me has 2 showings on the 23rd, a 4 and 7. Dunno if I should wait for the real date so I can go with all my co-workers to a LIEMAX screen.
Why not both?

There’s no Superman without Lois. Once you focus less or take her out then you really don’t “get” Superman
Not true. There have been many great stories where she doesn’t even appear at all or plays a very small role at best. Besides he’s the main character. He needs to have a greater focus on him than anyone else. Lois is his most important supporting character, but she is not his co-star. I think Supes has something like 43 lines of dialogue in MoS. That’s fucking terrible.

Pretty sure that was for bvs and theatrical version

And I disagree

Fair enough. Mera was an integral part of Arthur’s journey in the Aquaman movie and I think you couldn’t cut her out without drastically changing his story, so there are cases where the LI is just as important as the titular hero. But I don’t believe that’s the case for everyone.

Part of the problem with Superman on the big screen is a lack of ambition. There is always Lois as the love interest and one of two villains. Rince and repeat.

If they really want to reach a new generation of fans they need to think bigger. Lois and Clark hasn't been an interesting dynamic since the 1990s. Try something else, at least temporarily. Breathe some new life into a tired franchise.

I love the idea of Hawkman v Black Adam in Egypt and in modern times. That’ll be cool. And I love the idea of Atom Smasher on the big screen. This needs to be true!

I agree. Instead of Lex or Zod why not Metallo or Brainiac? Instead of Lois why not Lana? Instead of Metropolis why not set it on Warworld? Most directors don’t even seem that interested in a status quo Supes, might as well switch things up like Ragnarok did for Thor.

Kind of crazy to think we could get Hawkman and Black Adam on the big screen together, but I’m all for it.

Anyone seen Cap Marvel yet? Watched it earlier today... I did not think much of it at all. Wasn't bad, wasn't good either. It was just there, something seemed off about it.

Friends didn't rate the movie, coupled with my go to reviewers being cold on it I've decided to give it a miss.

Affleck to direct Deathstroke - you heard it here first.

Maybe you just hate women.
Not really. That's the first MCU movie i watched at the cinemas since Infinity War. I will personally always support female superhero movies... expect a mystique movie though. Fuck that character.

Also is that a thing? If you dont like Cap M you don't like women?

Nope. I'm still damaged from Ant-Man and the Wasp.
I watched Antman and Wasp on Netflix and I actually loved it. Enjoyed it a lot more than the first.

i thought the writing was really bad. The tone too. Carol is this cool jokester but she didn't pull it off at all. Everything in the movie felt unearned.

I realized something the other day while watching. One huge advantage marvel movies have is that the universe is so we'll made at this point that new movies don't need to take time to setup much background info. They can just put something out there in the movie and move on without holding your hand. It allows the movie to feel more natural and just keep moving along.

If a villain is in SS that means they have that bomb and can't really be bad anymore right? How would KF or King Shark be a villain for a Flash trilogy after being in SS

Does Waller typically remove the bombs? I thought they stay in jail in between missions
I think that she only removes the bomb when they finish their sentence, by completing missions they reduce their sentence and I'm sure some in the comics have found ways to escape
