I’m definitely in favor of not conforming to this bullshit notion of being jacked to be a superhero.

Batman is frequently depicted as being about as physically strong as a human could possibly be without superpowers or any sort of artificial enhancements like steroids or whatever the hell Bane uses. I would fully expect the actor who plays him to be jacked as shit. Not cartoonishly muscular like a bodybuilder, but he should definitely have some mass to him.

Bale's physique in Batman Begins was on-point as far as what I picture Batman's physicality being in live action.

Mazuchelli Batman is what I envision Batman as.

Superman is another character who should just be fit but not jacked

Basically, if you think any of these MCU or DC guys ain’t juicing you’re fooling yourself.

Small amounts in a controlled cycles can have a insane effect. Did any of you guys see how hugh Jackman looked for days of future past or his later wolverine appearances? Fucking ripped for a 50 something year old.
yep, and even then he said it was very hard and all he did was work upper body, he didn't even touch his legs and it took its toll on him.

Am I the only one who was not blown away by Endgame? Don't get me wrong it was good, but I actually prefer Shazam to it lmao.
I mean, it was cool. I definitely felt those three hours, though. Paul Rudd put the first hour+ on his back and God bless him for it.

In terms of recent Marvel films, I still greatly prefer Black Panther and Thor Ragnarok. Thinking on it, the whole "Avengers" series has actually been pretty "whatever" for me. The only one I really like is the original Avengers.

WW: well received, made bank.
JL: ... we don't talk about that one.
Aquaman: well received, currently the highest grossing debut solo film of all time
Shazam: well received, at worst WB has to wait until the home release to make a profit

IDK guys. DC should reboot everything. Clearly nothing they are doing is working.
But you see Rvaan, I personally didn't like/see those movies. That means they need to reboot and start over. To appease me specifically.

Anyone who has seen the Apes movies, how is the action? The current rumor is the studio wants more action in The Batman.

Dawn has some excellent set pieces, and even though War is low on action scenes, they're still incredible

I'm not worried at all about this project, I JUST DON'T WANT TO WAIT THREE YEARS

War is pedestrian and doesn't make any sense at all. Not sure about the critical reception of that one and I suppose the audience didn't buy it either.

War of the Planet of the Apes is the big reason why I'm skeptical of Matt Reeves writing the Batman. I'm fine with his directing, and his work on Dawn was phenomenal, but War had slow pacing, obvious tropes and confusing plot developments that kept me from loving it as much as the prior two Apes films. That being said, I understand the kind of pressure Matt must be feeling from both the studio and the fans in creating a well-received Batman film, and if the delays necessitate the eventual delivery, then I'll be happy to wait.

Dawn and War were both great, and I appreciated the slower pace of War even though the titles should have been flipped for each movie

Y'all depressing as fuck.
How can we be calm when Marvu and Feigu are beating DC to the punch. How can we not feel depressed when WB announces New Gods only for Feigu to announce Eternals shortly after. Now this entire multiverse thing effectively making it impossible for the DCEU to pursue it. Feigu knows exactly what he's doing and that is making sure that the DCEU cant grow.

The DCU was fucked when BvS was a critical flop and provided endless memes like Martha and Sadfleck.

I can appreciate one off movies being good like Wonder Woman and Aquaman, but that overall excitement about the universe is non-existent.

Man of Steel - Fire
Batman v Superman - controversial
Suicide Squad - Bad but entertaining
Wonder Woman - Great
Justice League - Everyone Knows
Aquaman - Outrageous
Shazam - Amazing

DCEU is 5/7.

.....Why?

Marvel and DC have been reading each others' notes for decades. Are folks really expecting their movies to never cover some of the same ground? They're practically the same damn company.

I mean Feige has literally cited the Donner Superman films as being a source of inspiration for the MCU. Quality is quality, doesn’t matter if it’s your competitor you have to have to take a look at what’s worked in the past and what’s working right now.

Nah I'm fine with the status of the DCEU as it is rather than the times we keep hearing about films and characters in development from blogging sites and rumor mills that get us all into a frenzied panic. If there's anything that Walter Hamada's been doing right as of now, it's been keeping those leaks and rumors in line. We just gotta wait till SDCC and we'll forget all about how well the MCU is doing. WB knows they have one of the hugest blockbuster properties in the wake of the MCU'S success and it's going to take some time.

And personally the DCEU has been 7/7 for me. Love all the films to varying degrees and I can't wait to see what comes next.

Frankly I believe that Feigu is stepping on DCs figurative toes on purpose while acting like he doesn't have any animosity toward them. The movie industry like any other capitalist industry is a seriously savage business where the ones at the top can get away with anything, whether that is stealing ideas or laundering money.

I'm not too worried for the DC storylines if they want to do something like Endgame. I mean look at all the great storylines that are absolutely epic in the comics, and those are just the first one that cames in my mind :

Crisis on infinite earths
Identity Crisis
Final Crisis
Flashpoint Paradox
Justice
Darkseid War
Injustice League
Blackest Night

It's only a question of if WB is really willing to build something like that or if they only want to create characters that are in the same universe but don't interact with each others.

I mean people clearly dig the connected universe concept but you actually have to have a game plan well ahead of time. How many of them have failed at this point?

You can still have a shared universe even if you don’t connect every movie. The DC heroes exist in Aquaman and WW even if they don’t show up there in any way. Shazam flat out mention them in the movie. You can’t expect them to be at the same point Marvel is right now, DC/WB have pretty much started over since JL so if Aquaman, WW and Shazam is the soft reboot we’re only three movies in.

Also they’re not new to connected universes, they’ve been pretty successful with their CW and Animated universe. Snyder probably never even had plans for a big Marvel like shared universe when he did Man of Steel and WB should never have let him be the head of it. But we’re past that now and they’re actually building the universe now with their solo movies, like Marvel did in Phase 1.

Well Aquaman 2 is an interesting release date now. Disney moved a SW movie to December of that year.

Behold the scorching of my coming hot take :
Aquaman was sorta like an underwater star-wars .

That is a compliment .
