Justice League Movie

So Zack Snyder has stepped away from the project due to the tragic suicide of his daughter. Joss Whedon is taking over for post production and reshoots/additional scenes. 

Maybe Whedon's involvement on the back end might be a shot in the arm for the DCCU?

Hopefully, but it also depends on how much creative control they give him. I think the DC arc of movies will be pretty good regardless, though. The new Wonder Woman movie looks fantastic. I like to see my Amazons portrayed in a more "Classical" manner. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

I agree, the new WW movie looks fantastic. That being said, BvS bordered on being terrible, especially considering that CA: Civil War came out right shortly after it and was FAR superior. 
I'm hoping that Whedon is granted enough license to pull the trigger on as reshoots to make it as good of a movie as it can be.

I probably enjoyed Batman v Superman so much because I'm no steeped in the mythology.  Whatever reason, I think is a fine film. I was leery of the premise going in, but it made some sense as it unfolded. I acknowledge mine seems to be a minority opinion.  /chuckle/

Anytime you can get Whedon on a project, the best thing to do is to give him a free hand.  He's enough of a professional to respect what's already done while putting his own touch onto it.

Re: Justice League Movie

I saw Wonder Woman last night (my wife's idea) and thought it was pretty good.  For some reason it was set during WWI instead of WWII though. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/confused.png

I just saw it earlier today. Thought it was solid, clearly the best movie of the DCCU I liked their take on the character quite a bit and to me, she's the most compelling character in the DCCU so far.

Probably to avoid comparisons with Captain America. I think it was a smart marketing and story choice. It doesn't really detract too much from the mythos/story (didn't read the comics, just watched the Linda Carter tv shows). It does underscore her Amazonian/metahuman longevity (based on the BvS movie arc).

I'm looking forward to watching it tomorrow morning.


What? Me worry?
