I mean... he just doesn't have his full armor on. Still looks like Darkseid. Also, when he showed up in that scene, it was thousands of years ago, a younger Darkseid before he got his new look?

WB can barely get a flash movie off the ground while Marvel’s gonna make the fucking Eternals a household name

Who knows. Maybe his pitch wasnt good? Maybe the budget would be too large and with Hamada now in charge they weren't interested.

Probably didn't want to step on Johns' toes at the time because he was given GLC. Johns hasn't really proven anything when it comes to movies, I would've went with McQuarrie, but that's me.

...

WB bailed on McQuarrie? That's dumb.

Guess they consider that Earth salted.
My initial take is that they just don’t want to put in the effort to rehabilitate the Cavill Superman, but maybe they want a clean break with Snyder for when they reboot the character. Another take in the same vein as Snyder probably isn’t going to get that far at WB.

Has WB shown any sign of valuing Johns at all? They made him the scapegoat for JL, and over on the comics side have gone out of their way to mess with his plans. I don’t think they really think that highly of him.

He's still doing Stargirl so they valued him enough to let him keep that... for now.

Seems obvious now that WB wants to follow the Marvel formula and make all their first solo movies safe and familiar affairs to get audiences on board. Honestly, it's kind of what they should've done anyway to start this whole thing off. After the audience settles in, that's when you can subvert their expectations and go BvS on them. People want to see the characters on screen as they've pictured them in their minds growing up. Superman the big blue boy scout, Flash the fun one, Batman the broody one that doesn't kill, Wonder Woman the compassionate one, etc. After you give them those movies you can go anywhere because the audience will trust you and your vision (as long as those solo movies perform like WW and Aquaman did).

EDIT - I should clarify that this should've been applied only if they felt like they wanted to really give the big extended universe 10+ year 20+ movie in mind. MoS, BvS, JL1 and 2 self contained would've been fine as is if they hadn't interfered.

I personally feel like Warners had probably already moved on from Cavill and weren't prepared to entertain the idea of a MOS sequel even with McQuarrie writing and directing. And given that his GLC pitch would have followed on from that proposed film that was probably a non-stater too.

I kinda want them to continue doing else world type movies, like Joker. And then what ever they are doing with that shared universe. They can do alot of stories that way with the else world side.

Ehhh I don’t know, I don’t think Aquabro is how most people envisioned Aquaman but that worked out fine lol.

Aquaman is a weird case. The average person either had no real idea of what he should be, or got most of their knowledge from parodies and jokes that made fun of him. They obviously weren't going to treat the character like a joke, but they couldn't exactly make him the "Heavy is the head" sadsack he often is in the comic. Seems like, whether they talked about it or not, both Synder and Wan agreed that Arthur would be best suited to being a swashbuckling meathead. Kind of like a PG13 version of his Brave and the Bold self, only played a little straighter.

God I hope Joker is great.

Feels like there's already a section of people wanting it to be a bad film even with the great trailer.
