Also The Flash makeup team is god like.

The show is taking a month long pause, when it returns Barry will have a new costume that will be a godsend IRL and will allow them to produce full costume Flash scenes with a third of the time, down to 2 hours from the original costume to half an hour and now just 15 minutes to put on.

For those alarmed at the Grodd scene thinking they were showing him too much and therefore looking a little CGI goofy it was mainly so the audience would have a clear understanding of his size as they have said before "we'll only ever see Grodd underground and/or at night" though apparently they haven't rule out and animatronic gorilla head for his dialogue scenes.

I understand that it is missing a lot of the grittiness of Hellblazer, and NBC is limited by the FCC nonsense, but I've greatly enjoyed Constantine. Perhaps part of the reason I do is that I wasn't familiar at all with Constantine except for the name and basic setup prior to seeing this show. (Well, I saw the Keanu Reeves movie, but I understand that also takes a lot of liberties from the source.)

Not really sure I like where they've gone with Ray, but I figure the further they move him away from Arrow the less Tony Stark he'll start to be.

Cuz right now he's WAAAAAAAAY too Tony Stark, like giving him flight is a little too much, but given Arrow's Universe they are kinda stuck, they really need to shift him over to The Flash soon.

The thing that costume says to me is "Much smaller budget than Flash & Arrow" though like Flash and Arrow they'll probably tweak it.

Things that would help:

Brighter colors less evocative of Superman returns and Man of Steel.
In trying to streamline and distinguish the symbol they accomplished neither and the result is bland, gold on a red background would have gone better with her hair.
Shortening her boots, the terrible Nu52 design uses the same boot height but has holes in the knees to prevent unflattering "wrinkly knees."
Shortening the sleeves to just below the elbow which serves the same purpose as the open neck and flatters females curves better (Super Best Friends Forever skits pointed this out and they're super right.)
Lastly a more "plastic" belt would again help make it less Halloween and more dynamic.

So basically Live Action Super Best Friends forever with the Calvin Ellis' "S" design, obviously the proportions don't need to apply.

THAT SAID, This is awesome considering how bad it coulda been, plus 90% of this show will be at night, it helps make SFX look less shit so at least they know what they're designing for.

(I hope she has shorts under that skirt because she's gonna be doing SO MUCH WIRE WORK.)

Overall we'll see how things pan out after they test the pilot. Which will be "leaked" just like the Flash was. It seems okay.

If we get some backstory that Jimmy was a massive geek but had it bullied out of him and he stars reconnecting with some of what he loved through Kara. That could help it.

Right, as if the current Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl aren't going to confuse enough people as it is? I honestly don't understand.

I think the biggest thing hampering Man of Steel was the staff. Snyder is a good cinematographer but a mediocre director and Goyer is just awful, so Batman v Superman's already off to a decent start by replacing Goyer.

DC doesn't need to achieve the success of the MCU and in all honesty they really shouldn't bother trying since most of that pie's already long eaten. As long DC keeps its expections reasonable and the films are just competent enough to gain a niche and hold on, they'll be in a stable position once Marvel's luster wears off, assuming that's not the result of a global loss of interest in hero movies.

>Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are working behind the scenes to develop a story for Warner Bros.’ big-screen version of the DC Comic-based superhero The Flash. They are currently working on a treatment for the studio about the superhero, whose super speed allows him to seemingly break the speed of light and time travel. The character, whose origins began in 1940, have been part of the Justice League at DC Comics and has been given small-screen and feature treatments before, but with Lord and Miller on the case, The Flash will take on a totally different dimension.

>Whether they decide to direct is still up in the air. They have not, as yet, chosen their next project. Together they have directed some of the most successful movies at the box office, including Warner Bros.’ animated monster The Lego Movie which was as much as a creative hit as it was at the box office. That one grossed $468.7M worldwide and spawned a spinoff and sequel, which Lord and Miller are both involved with. Specifically, The Lego Batman Movie and The Lego sequel.

I can think of something better. Both of them are talking it out with Bruce having none of it and they get attacked either by Military or Lex backed by the government to handle "The Alien and The Vigilante." One of them gets TKO'd and they are taken from the battle by the other away for recovery.

Thinking either Bruce getting taken back to the Kent farm and waking up in Clark's old room with Clark asleep in a chair across from him.

Or Clark waking up on Wayne Manor just as Alfred finishes up some cleaning of his bandages and then makes his way down to the dining room to meet with Bruce.

I don’t think anyone was demanding he look exactly like Ledger, Nicholson, or even Romero. But this reeks of some out-of-touch film exec’s idea of what ‘edgy’ looks like. The tattoo on Leto!Joker’s forehead makes me think this design was an idea on the level of ‘Spider-Man should be a humble-bragging EDM-loving dudebro’ that ultimately didn’t get rejected somewhere down the line.

>Warner Bros has learned the wrong lesson from Marvel's success - they're chasing a shared universe, but they don't have a Kevin Feige overseeing it all. That is vital; Marvel Studios is producer-driven, and it allows the films to work together and for the entire system to move like a machine. Speaking to THR a WB insider called the DC Movieverse plan 'filmmaker-driven,' which is clearly a dig at what many see as a samey quality to the Marvel films. That's a nice concept, but the reality is that the filmmakers all need a centralized person (or persons) to lean on when the universe is shared.

>Look at Star Wars - that's shaping up to be a 'filmmaker-driven' shared universe, but everybody answers to the Lucasfilm Story Group, who coordinate everything and make sure all the films fit together and work towards a common goal. This is what WB is missing.

Course I also feel Rises would have been a much better introduction movie for a new Batman and then start them off on their own with Superman still having solo films for at least another two films.

Its interesting how much Coulson and Fury are good symbols for how the Marvel films work together. I think they need something like that, though that might be too much "fun".

It's really too bad. As everyone's saying the DC reps are taking entirely the wrong message from that movie's failure. Green Lantern didn't do bad because it was too lighthearted, it did bad because it was just plain bad (hopefully Deadpool will be good proof of that). Likewise TDK isn't good because of its srsbzns, that's just a side effect of Nolan's style. Unfortunately Snyder and all the other non-Nolan people don't seem to understand that, hence the total mess Man of Steel ended up being.

I don't hate James Olsen. Its a take on a character, not a performance based on a pre-existing one.
Hell, there's little I dislike about this. Maybe the trailer showed a little too much, but the overall tone actually feels like a modern day version of the Dick Donner film, oddly enough.

I'm looking forward to it, anyway.

The tone kind of annoys me. Nothing wrong with superheroes kicking ass and being feminine at the same time, but I feel like it pours on the chick flick vibes too heavily, at least early on.

It's Jimmy Olsen post Superman, becoming an award winning ultra cool guy after being inspired by Superman is how Jimmy develops because he's awesome, it's mainly just dissonance with his actor and unfamiliarity with stage of the character that rarely gets focused on.

I really like the cringe worthy gossipgirls style, AND I AM SO ON BOARD WITH CAT GRANT AS A CENTRAL CHARACTER.

Damnit, that's the stupidest thing. What is with DC's Barry obsession? They should've made the film version based off of Wally West to draw in all the fans of him from the 90s (and everything about the current New 52 version of him is terrible including the costume).

Not necessarily, Kyle was the Lantern for me before Justice League brought in Stewart so he also has a fair shot at the movies as Stewart, who also had a problem with being boring in the cartoons at first. Wally West also has the benefit of not being dead at the time.

At the risk of making a lot of people angry and exposing myself as a total comic book casual, I have to ask: What's the difference between Barry and Wally? From the not-comic book media I've consumed, they seem pretty similar. I had honestly forgotten that there were multiple Flashes until I read this thread. It's not like Wally's secret identity came up very often in the animated series (plus I think he had the same day job as TV Barry).

Barry was a Silver Age Hero who sucked and everybody hated so they killed him, and Wally West was the best hero ever and my dad.

Barry is a dork, Wally is a legacy hero who works really hard to be the best he can and became a family man. Most people from the outside wouldn't really notice the difference a lot of the time.

Barry Allen was the Flash from 1956-1986. His book basically started the Silver Age of superheroes, and had tons of wacky, insane, fun ideas, and created important concepts like the DC multiverse. (Barry was actually the SECOND Flash, after Jay Garrick, who DC decided existed on an alternate Earth, and superspeed allowed them to meet each other) His book was pretty basic super-hero stuff, with Barry being motivated mostly by his own ethics, and a lot of the book had a Gee-Whiz SCIENCE! kind of feel to it, with sidebars explaining scientific phenomena and the like.

By the 80s, his book was somewhat waning in popularity compared to hits like New Teen Titans and Legion of Super-Heroes, and so they decided to cancel it after a long storyline where Barry got charged with manslaughter for killing the Reverse Flash.

Wally West was originally Kid Flash, Barry Allen's sidekick, who got his powers the exact same way Barry did. Barry was dating Iris West, Wally's aunt, and Wally was a huge fan of the Flash. After Barry died in Crisis on Infinite Earths (after the cancellation of his book) Wally decided to basically 'graduate' from being Kid Flash, to being THE Flash, and much of his series was about living up to the example of Barry Allen.

Eventually, DC decided to bring Barry back from the dead (because no one ever stays dead in comics) and Wally kind of disappeared, and then history got rewritten and there's a new Wally West who is never going to live up to the original. This is why >42965 is so pissy. Barry basically came back and invalidated twenty years of Wally-as-Flash.

He's wrong about Barry being a bad character, because if Barry really did suck, Wally would also suck for looking up to a crappy character.

DC seems intent on completely shitting all over Wally West, not only by going out of their way to erase him and his family from history but also because on top of just being plain awful the New 52 Wally West is a goddamn racist stereotype that erases any of the goodwill that could've been gotten from their rather hamfisted attempt at increasing diversity. And don't get me started on all the terrible stuff that's been going on with Bart Allen since Graduation Day.

Supergirl is really trying, waaaay too hard actually, it needs to sort out it's identity disorder, dial back Jimmy's cool, ditch that godawful Jimmy lite friend character, ditch the man of steel "you should let people die" nonsense, PUMP UP EVERYTHING TARGETED AT WOMEN, DEVIL WEAR PRADA PLUS 9000, do that and it's all good.

The villain subplot is...kinda out of place but is your main hook on keeping the male audience invested, the military stuff could be ditched but it was basically made entirely to be an extension of the villains stuff.

How well is this series actually doing with female demographics? Because speaking anecdotally it's a little too overtly "feminine" to the point of turning me off because of just how cliche and corny everything feels.

Its speculation, Harley goes up to him and pull a gun. He backhands her to the ground and takes the gun. Footage from behind shows him widening his stance and his hands going in front of his pants. So speculation is he takes a piss on her. Though he could just be shoving the gun down in there.

But its a viable idea since this is going with "he's clearly an asshole" vibe with this joker with the suit, hair and flashy car.

Guys, I recently watched the old Supergirl flick for the first time.

Make no mistake, the film's terrible, dreadful, a shitty mess... but dang, Helen Slater was a perfect cast, wasn't she? The right mix of cute, sexy, innocent, and badass. Plus, the Supergirl them Goldsmith composed for the character is (IMO of course) every bit as good, catchy and iconic-sounding as Williams' Superman theme. Such wasted potential, waht a shame.
