DC Fans: Can We Trust Warner Brothers?

The answer is clear to me if not to you.  The answer is no.

Justice League was symptomatic of the behind the scenes at Warner Brothers.  Kevin Tsujihara and the rest of the ‘suits’ totally ripped the heart out of that film.  Not to mention, but I will, imploding the box office and destroying any trust DC fans had with the Warner Brother leadership.  This would also effect DVD/blu ray sales.  Some fans are saying they won’t even buy a theatrical cut let alone an extended cut of what was presented.  We had hoped Tsujihara had learned his lesson with BvS on theatrical vs extended, but unfortunately, this 2 hour limit is a mantra for him.  He tried to do this with the Harry Potter films along with Diane Nelson.  (Do the research)

Speaking of Nelson, why is she still Geoff Johns’ boss?  He supposedly was ‘over’ the films.  I know he would never have the power that Kevin Feige has at Marvel STUDIOS.  DC Entertainment is a small cog in a giant WB wheel.  How much pushback did Johns have over all the decisions for Justice League?  And if he did have some pushback, how ardently did he fight to keep the intregity of the DCEU?  Justice League theatrical was a Marvel version of a DCEU film.  schwarma = brunch.  Male falling into female’s boobs.  Secret identities exposed.  Etc, etc, etc.  Plus Nelson did not know what the story was within Action #1 1938, a now multi-million dollar comic which Henry Cavill held at the premiere of Man of Steel.  So it’s a short leap from Johns to know-nothing Nelson then onto more DCU ignorants over her.

Jon Berg.  What exactly did he do besides making sure Zack Snyder didn’t go over budget?  — which he didn’t.  (about $215M)  The 300 million was the sum total of Whedon’s reshoots, CGIing Cavill’s moustache and Danny Elfman’s banal score.  So how did Jon Berg help DC Fans get the film they were promised?  He didn’t.  He’s gone now.  Buh-bye!  (who did he know or what did he know over some bigwig in the WB in order to get the job?)

Speaking of Henry Cavill’s moustache.  Reportedly Paramount refused to allow Cavill to shave it due to contractual restraints while MI6 was still in production.  Technically it still is since Cruise broke his ankle – so Henry still has to wear the stache.  (Don’t get me started on how Tom Cruise has to be the prettiest in his films.  And how all the good actors get killed off.)   They tossed WB a $15M penalty if Cavill shaved.  If Kevin Tsujihara had any balls, he’d had slapped the WB lawyers on that immediately — to pay for it (instead of Cavill) after getting the price lowered.  Lord knows WB lawyers were always at the ready when the Siegel or Shuster estates wanted due process.

Whedon.  God forbid he still is attached to Batgirl, let alone any other DCEU product.  The fake feminist, womanizer went out of his way to downgrade and/or insult every female character in Justice League.  Wonder Woman,  Lois Lane, Mera, Iris West, Martha Kent, Cyborg’s mother, and Heggra (Steppenwolf’s mother).   How is that conducive of building a universe for fans?  MPAA has reported for over a decade that female viewership is the MAJORITY of film audiences!

As a writer, Whedon disappointed on several fronts.  In the initial scene,  Batman knows parademons feed (literally) off fear.  But through a good third of the movie, a Russian family, who are near a parademon nest, cower in their humble cottage and the parademons ignore them.  Apparently fear seasoned with borscht isn’t as palatable to parademons.   Fans had to endure the Russian family instead of seeing something more iconic within the 2 hour mandate.

Secret Identities.  Whedon still is in Marvel mode on this one.  Batman says ‘Alfred’ while in the presence of a criminal.  Sloppy Batman — more like sloppy Marvelesque Whedon.  Also Lois comes to the rescue during the Justice League fight to shout “Clark!” in front of a cop.

Iconic moments.  We saw the trailers.  WB used a lot of Zack Snyder scenes we DC fans were looking forward to, but never got to see in the actual film.  It’s one of the reasons I rushed home after first viewing Justice League to see how badly WB had bait and switched.   WB apparently thinks very little of their fan base.

There’s a scene in one trailer probably taking place during the Justice League fight with Superman; Cyborg warns a cop (played by Mark McClure, former Jimmy of Superman the Movie) he better move.   There’s a tank flying and landing nearby.  The tank was green.  Why would that matter?  What if Snyder gave us the iconic vehicle over Superman’s head just before he tossed that tank?   WB suits would not know the significance of that moment just as they are totally illiterate in the DC Universe.  They think they can make Marvel movies (in this case, 2 hour popcorn schlock when compared to previous DCEU films) with DC characters.    DC and Marvel are two different animals and you can’t use the same formula for both.  A formula should not be used AT ALL.

Tsujihara and the rest of the WB suits could have changed Justice League’s release date into 2018 (especially if they’re not doing MOS2) — but refused to do so.  Why?  Because then they wouldn’t get their bonuses in 2017.  Let’s hope they don’t get an extra penny after demolishing THE film they have wanted and planned for over a decade.

Will I go see another DCEU film?  Absolutely.  Aquaman.  It’s Mamoa.  Hopefully with Tsujihara’s contract up in March, 2018, Aquaman won’t be butchered by its release in November, 2018.

June, 2018 should be the release of Man of Steel 2 for Superman’s 80th anniversary.  Is Warner Brothers going to do nothing about that?  There was a second film being shot along with Justice League.  Amy Adams rented a house for her family in London for months.  The amount of scenes that Amy was involved in (including ones on the cutting room floor) probably didn’t warrant a move to England if the only film she was in was Justice League.  Also actors from Suicide Squad and Chris Pine were seen on set in London.  For which film?  Obviously not Justice League.

Henry Cavill at ACE Comic Con (December 8 thru 10th, 2017)  said they were working on MOS2.  Amy Adams also has made that statement.  Working as opposed to worked.  Meaning they are continuing to work on it.

2019 is Batman’s 80th anniversary.  Rumors are Ben Affleck is not being Batman in The Batman film.  He’s going to do Flashpoint though???  Affleck is a great Batman and Bruce Wayne.  I would love to see his take on the solo film.  He’s more than earned it.  Yes, he relinquished the director’s seat — but writing, producing, acting and directing for a character like Batman would be too much for anyone.  Also, seeing what Warner Brothers put Zack Snyder through couldn’t have been positive.

Can fans trust Warner Brothers to give us iconic DCEU films?  Too many cooks spoil the broth.  Apparently WB hasn’t heard that one.  But then how would they get their bonuses?  Tsujihara’s contract may not be renewed in March, 2018.  If Warner Brothers is purportedly a ‘director’s studio’ — they need to make sure it stays that way and with proof being demonstrated in their films.  Quit interfering.  Quit pulling unrealistic mandates out of your ass and realize what a gold mine you have with the DCEU.

How could WB redeem themselves if they wanted to?  (They probably don’t — taking their bonuses to the bank.)  THE Zack Snyder cut.  Before he left, Snyder submitted a 3.5 hour cut which Warner Brother executives deemed unwatchable.  Explain please.  What does unwatchable mean exactly?   Would a DC fan find it so?

Apparently WB is paying bloggers to report there is no Zack Snyder cut.  More fake news, Warner Brothers?  After the trailers you gave us, it wouldn’t surprise me.  BUT the sound guy and the cinematographer state there is one.  It may not have every single special effect done, but A LOT of the film is completed.  JunkieXL even did a score which had individual hero themes along with the previous Han Zimmer music.

I have seen unfinished extended cuts before.  The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension being one of them.  DC Fans are not unfamiliar with ‘unfinished’ cuts of films.  The Richard Donner Cut finally made it into the hands of fans while WB took in the money.  We have the internet now.  Things happen a lot faster.

Give fans, all fans, the Zack Snyder Cut.  If WB expects to make money with a Whedon extended cut . . . guess again.  Your logic has been faulty so far, WB suits.  Give the fans what they want!!!

Fans want to see Cyborg’s back story with his mother.  William DeFoe as Vulko in Atlantis.  Kevin Costner as the returning ‘ghost’ of Pa Kent encouraging Clark to accept both sides of himself.   Flash not worried about brunch and falling into Wonder Woman’s boobs (which was achieved using body doubles since the actors refused).   Batman being more of a detective than fishing for parademons.  The breakout of Lex Luthor from prison by Deathstroke.  Lois Lane investigating Star Labs rather than puff pieces — and being ‘thirsty’.  (Ugh, Whedon.)  The proposal — yep, there was one.  The possible iconic Superman lifting a tank over his head.  Green Lanterns showing up to talk to Batman.  Oh yea, and Darkseid being his dark self.

Zack Snyder created a DC Universe world(s).  Things came full circle or were pleasantly resolved with each film.  Unless we get the Zack Snyder cut, we will never see that fullness of story and history ever again.

#ReleaseTheSnyderCut  The petition on change.org is now over 160,000 (even after routine email verification).  If you haven’t signed the petition and want to see what we were sold in the trailers, then do so now.  Fight the powers that be!

Fans of DC characters are ALL IN with the release of the Zack Snyder Cut!

Fanboy Bias Misinterps Latest 2017 SDCC JL Trailer

Note:  Thanks to CoolestClips4K for putting all the trailers together, most recent to first. Explore and Enjoy while reading this blogpost.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVp2kanlyXk

I know everyone has their biases, but while watching dozens of YouTube vids of reactions to the JL 2017 SDCC trailer – it just made me depressed. The twists and the turns and the complete ignorance of logic. Oy!

Bias clouds perception. Keep that in mind, fanboys. I’ll admit I am a total Superman fan, but I hope to show with logic and reality, where this trailer/film leads.

Justice League is the 4th film of the new DCEU. The Justice League has not formed yet. If you watched Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (it’s even in the title!), we see where the seeds of forming such an alliance came to light. Justice League (part 1, more about that later) is the fruition of that idea. It’s about the Justice League. Not crossovers with television shows. Get it!?

Leading off with a robbery or terrorist act by humans this trailer begins inside what appears to be a museum. School children are involved as if they are visiting. This could possibly be the Louvre where Diana works (see the Wonder Woman movie). However, the next segment shows London, so that is also a possibility. Showing Diana in action right away is riding the crest of the popularity of her movie. Smart!

“The world remains in mourning after the death of the Superman.” We see London Bridge with a huge black and white banner of the S-shield. Hope is now dead.

In Metropolis, Lois Lane is standing under an umbrella looking at the debris of the Superman statue. Yes, Lois Lane, people. We are looking over her shoulder. (We will also be looking over someone else’s shoulder later in the trailer. Coincidence? I think not.) Lois was in the previous trailer. She is the key. (Batman v Superman: DOJ reference) Another clue is we see a bundle of Daily Planet newspapers in the rain with the headline, WORLD WITHOUT HOPE.

The voiceover then says, “What we are seeing is a crime wave around the world!” Now why would that be? Superman is dead. Superman could fly anywhere in the world to save people. Hope died. Evil rejoices and parties. Batman doesn’t do global. He’s stayed mostly in Gotham taking care of his costumed crazies. Wonder Woman doesn’t go far either, at least not at this time or as quickly as Superman could.

There’s a mention of Arkham Asylum in the voiceover. “And where is the Gotham Bat? The bat vigilante has been a no show.” Okay, Bats is not taking care of worldwide business. The Arkham mention could mean he’s locked all his villains up (temporarily) while he goes off to do what? They’ve shown us this in the previous trailers. Bruce is going after the other ‘metas’. Like Arthur Curry (Aquaman) and Barry Allen (The Flash). It takes time to do this, especially when riding a horse to isolated fishing villages. Diana doesn’t appear to be involved with this quest. Perhaps she’s to hold down the fort for whatever happens ‘locally’? Maybe it is Diana who ‘discovers’ Cyborg (she has a voice over regarding him in a previous trailer).

In BvSDOJ, Bruce was forewarned via his vision/dream of a future where Superman goes rogue because of the death of Lois Lane. Now, Superman is dead. That future has changed. Bruce may have more than one directive. These are simultaneous rather than in any order of importance. 1) Keep Lois Lane alive since Bruce was told by a ‘future’ Flash that Lois is the key. If Lois is alive, there’s hope – meaning Superman. How? Jor-El in Man of Steel probably entrusted a whole Kryptonian shipload of information to Lois while he told her how to use the baby ship. Superman is resurrected in this movie. Does Lois help with that? There’s a reason Kal-El has all the Kryptonian DNA within him. (Can’t be losing all that. There’s gotta be a fail safe.) 2) Find the other metas to help fight what’s coming. In the ‘dream’ Bruce was alone fighting parademons and rogue Superman. And the Omega symbol is still there looming. Bruce references this in his talk with Diana at Clark’s burial in Smallville as to why he wants to find the others.

The other thing to notice in these scenes of Batman. He’s not looking over Gotham. He is standing over Metropolis and looking down on the Kryptonian ship. (which I call the Metro Fortress of Solitude. Clark needs to rise up and get that thing to the Arctic. Just sayin.) That ship holds secrets. It had the ability to create Doomsday – so resurrecting Kal-El should be no problem. Is this also where battle scenes take place later in the trailer? Just asking.

“They said the age of heroes would never come again.” – Diana

“It has to. We don’t have any more time.” – Bruce

Do you feel the urgency?

Themyscira!!! Familiar territory after seeing the Wonder Woman film. This the past. If we saw Antiope (Robin Wright) we’d know for sure. Both Connie Nielsen (Hippolyta) and Wright were scheduled to show up in JL. Flashback!

“Something is coming.” – Hippolyta

It seems we’re looking at the tower where Diana took the ‘Godslayer’ sword, but that is not present. What we do see is a Mother Box coming to life and a Boom Tube. Talk about excitement! Seeing a Boom Tube cinematically is a true first in live action! The Amazons surround the Mother Box which has been in a place of prominence within the room. They are armored up. And out drops – Steppenwolf. Get your motor runnin & head on out the highway, baby. Cause this movie is gonna Rock!

* Spoiler Alert * I was curious who was playing Darkseid’s Uncle and reconnaissance main man. It’s Ciaran Hinds. Oh yes, please! First David Thewlis in Wonder Woman, now Ciaran. Majorly on board no matter how much CGI.

We’ve seen an inkling of Steppenwolf in the Ultimate Cut of BvSDOJ – a scene called Communion with Lex Luther in the Kryptonian ship. 3 mother boxes, too.

The Electro-axe looks amazing as Steppenwolf wreaks destruction on worlds.

“No protectors here” – Steppenwolf voiceover on a scene of Aquaman swimming towards a Neptune statue. (BTW my son hoped this was a reference to Martian Manhunter. Unfortunately he has been replaced by Cyborg. In our world of technocracy, we can see how Cyborg is more relative at this time.)

Diana turns and looks on a street. Cyborg looking through a crashed in window.

“No Lanterns.” – Steppenwolf. LANTERNS mention! A first in this new DCEU. Lanterns exist. But apparently Earth presently isn’t being protected. What happened to the Lantern in this sector? Has Hal Jordan not met Abin Sur yet? (more about that later)

We see the Wayne boathouse. (When is he going to get that mansion fixed up?) Bruce is looking at a hologram of SuperMAN, not Supergirl. Ask body builders or weight lifters about legs and their proportions. Plus it is a hologram and we don’t know what perspective the camera is coming from. Plus Steppenwolf says —

“No Kryptonian.” Singular, not plural. If Supergirl had been around, it would have been plural. So apparently Steppenwolf (and Darkseid, for that matter) are taking the path of least resistance. Earth annihilation is easy peasy at the moment.

Apokolips is aware of Kryptonians and Lanterns and who they protect. Big wonderful DCU going on here!

Barry Allen using the speed force to bend a window until it shatters. Is that Iris West (Kiersey Clemons) sitting behind him?

“This world will fall like all the others.” – Steppenwolf wielding the Electro-Axe. Sounds pretty confident since he’s under the impression there are no protectors of Earth.

“One misses the days when one’s biggest concerns were exploding windup penquins.” – Alfred. In a confined space – a plane or at the boathouse? That gets a rise out of Bruce who has been watching a monitor/tv. After an invasion of Kryptonians that only a Superman could handle, now comes Steppenwolf and parademons – no Earthly meta can handle alone. This film will prove even with a team of metahumans, no matter how heroic, they still need that extra spark – a super spark.

We see parademons and Steppenwolf inside a ship. Either Apokoliptian or they have taken over the Kryptonian ship. Then Steppenwolf looks up at a red sky. DC Comics readers know that a red sky means a crisis. The sky is on fire making it a good environment for Apokoliptians.

“This is crazy. All said we’re gonna die.” – Aquaman 5 metahumans facing Steppenwolf and hordes of parademons. It’s always darkest before the dawn.

Batman taking off in the Batmobile.

Inside the Batcave, Barry (I think, please correct me if I’m wrong) says, “Each of us in some way has held back.” Diana leaping through a crack in a walkway.

Uniformed up, Diana tells the rest, “Don’t engage alone. We do this together.” This takes us back to what happened at the end of Wonder Woman. Steve Trevor and Diana both had to do things on their own.

The Flash speed forcing. Some peeps have spotted a second figure in this shot speculating it is the Reverse Flash. Too soon. We don’t even have all the of Justice League introduced yet. Not saying there couldn’t be references, but if there is a second person in the shot it could be –- If you had watched the JL Behind The Scenes featurette, there is a scene of Flash ‘standing still’ as a half naked Clark moves past him. Not saying it is the same shot in the trailer. But could be part of the same scene/scheme.

“It’s really cool you guys get ready to do battle and stuff, but I’ve never done battle. I’ve just pushed at some people and run away.” – The Flash

Barry is talking about the enormity of the learning curve here. To go from pushing and running to doing battle with war dogs from Apokolips. THAT is daunting!

Intro the Flying Fox. Cyborg reaches in to take control of it. “Relax, Alfred, I’ll take it from here.”

“Uh, do I know you?” – Alfred. This is another reason why I think Cyborg may have been discovered by Diana and not Bruce. In the previous trailer, Cyborg tells Bats he thought the Batman wasn’t real. If Bruce had recruited him, then Cyborg would know he was real and Alfred would know who he was. Diana in the other trailer does all the expo on Cyborg.

More Flying Fox action. Twirling Steppenwolf. Red streak – laser? Heat vision? Steppenwolf is not prone to use Omega beams.

The Flash running at night. Diana and Steppenwolf going at it. The Electro-Axe in Atlantis heading for Aquaman. Batman taking on a parademon face to face. A building exploding with SWAT teams out front. Diana doing her hit bracelets thing towards Steppenwolf. (She is the God Killer after all. New Gods. Old Gods. You name it.) Batman leaping with a batarang against a blood red sky.

While we see these scenes, here is the voiceover:

“Superman was a beacon to the world. He didn’t just save people. He made them see the best parts of themselves.” – Batman/Bruce Wayne. Bruce should know since that’s exactly what Superman did for Batman in BvSDOJ. Drug him out of that Frank Miller funk and showed him the light! Amen!

Wonder Woman and Aquaman look up. “Alright!” – Aquaman

Cyborg flies down in a building.

“I don’t recognize this world.” – Alfred

“We don’t have to recognize it. We just have to save it.” – Bruce

Tsunami coming down a street. Aquaman using the Trident to stop it.

Fire around a tower that has been hit by a Batmobile shell?. Batman swerves to miss it as parademons hang on. The red sky is prevalent and is reflected on the Batmobile.

At night in a city, we see the boots of Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Flash as Cyborg arrives. Then there is a full shot of them at the Superman Memorial with flowers and ballons behind them. As well as Metropolis police cars. Are they looking at Batman? Is he with someone else? This scene was also in the JL BTS featurette where Aquaman is twirling his Trident.

Amazons in full battle with the parademons. Diana running to capture her sword which is out of reach. The Flash runs by and tips it towards her. Next. Not sure if it’s the Flying Fox or some other vehicle/ship. Could be underwater. But it looks embryonic. Like a womb with a fire blast.  Birthing matrix??

Aquaman surfing a falling parademon through a building. Hair shake. Just a day’s work for the King of Atlantis. Awesome!

Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg and Commissioner Gordon on top of a building with the Bat Signal.

“How many of you are there?” – Commissioner Gordon

“Not enough.” – Batman

As seen in other trailers, the Batman Gordon relationship is alive and well.

“You really think that . . . “ Gordon turns to see the Flash. Barry looks around.

“Oh, wow, they just … they really just vanished. Huh. Oh. That’s rude.” The Flash speed forces out.

After some fade to black, we see a glass of liquor begin to vibrate. There are some faint booms. Twice. BvSDOJ fans will remember that Clark’s breaking the sound barrier had a similar pattern when he went to save Lois in the desert.

Alfred is working on a vehicle in the boathouse as a full moon shines above. He looks up. There is recognition in his expression. But there is surprise and ‘disbelief’ as well.

“He said you’d come. Now let’s . . . hope. . . you’re not too late.”

Some red in the lower corner of the frame. (No, it’s not the brown of a bomber jacket.) We’re peering over the shoulder of whomever it is. Seeing it from their perspective. Alfred lowers his gaze when he says hope as if reading the S-shield. People who think this is Hal Jordan seem to forget that.

This also tears apart the rumor that Supes would be showing up in his black and white suit while being mind whammied by Darkseid. (See how the ‘future’ was changed by the death of Superman in BvSDOJ above)

When we first saw the trailer, I asked my buds on Twitter if we could see something in Alfred’s glasses. The S-shield could be there if Henry Cavill (Superman) was standing beside the camera for Jeremy Irons (Alfred) to interact with. We would expect to see some lighting as well. Films aren’t made in the dark. Some peeps have said there is a S-shield in Alfred’s glasses. These are the folks who do the hard evidence and blowup clips and zoom in to see what’s there. Others see a light and say it’s green so it has to be Jordan.

Throughout this trailer, it has held Superman to the forefront. Scene after scene, despite the fact he is not before the camera. This is about the resurrection of Superman and the formation of the Justice League.

Who is the best combatant against Darkseid, Steppenwolf, and the parademons? Not Diana. Not Batman (see Morrison’s Batman RIP). Certainly not The Flash, Aquaman or Cyborg. SUPERMAN is the answer!

I’ve seen reaction vids of people saying they hope it’s not Superman showing up. * headdesk * That is pure bias against Superman. There’s no logic there. Go back to reading your Marvel Comics. (I know not all Marvel fans hate Superman, but one guy admittedly did.) They also said Joss Whedon had taken over the entire film. So any quips spoken in the film (and this trailer) – that was Whedon. Obviously they didn’t listen to what Ray Fisher (Cyborg) wearing a I love ZS shirt at the JL 2017 SDCC panel had to say. They had finished the CGI and other scenes already.

Besides Geoff Johns trumps Joss Whedon in the DCEU any day, fanboys.  Zack Snyder’s vision carries on throughout this universe.

This film is not about Green Lantern. He couldn’t save the day even if he did show up. You have to have Superman to defeat Apokoliptians. That’s why Darkseid will be the big bad in Justice League part 2. Justice League will be in full force by that time.

The Death of Superman story was in BvSDOJ. They went there. The rest of that story is in Justice League. Writers of Justice League stories have said: Superman has to be taken out in order for the rest of the team to shine because he could literally take care of every threat. The same is true for this film. Superman is out/’dead’ so we can see how the Justice League was formed and performs as a team without Superman . . . for a while. But the Justice League isn’t the Justice League without Superman.

About Hal Jordan . . . do I think Green Lantern is going to be in this film. YES! It’s not the Justice League without him. Unite the Seven. Unite the League. And now the trailers are saying ALL IN.

If fanboys had paid attention to the DCEU and its players, they would have known about the Hal misses Kal exchange on instagram. A Green Lantern shirt wearing person sent that message to Cavill. Later Gadot and Affleck laughed. And after the trailer there was a meme going around with a snapshot of a certain film which featured ‘Hal’ and ‘Kal’ with furrowed brows over the “No Lanterns. No Kryptonian” line from the trailer.

Okay, fanboys, get your Lois Lane heels on and get to investigating. You can’t diagnose a trailer correctly without much information and a shitload of bias.

Fanboys are probably thinking I’m bias because I’m a Superman fan. Yep, but there’s more to it than that. Don’t dismiss reality. This DCEU started with Superman. He is the foundation of the DCU, always has been, always will be. He is the beacon of hope. He is who every other hero looks up to. He inspires so people will aspire to be better.

DCEU has a plethora of films coming out. LONG TERM PLANS which do not turn on a dime because some fans have a gripe. This is business. People sitting in conference rooms planning out an entire universe, possibly universes!!! There are contracts involved. People are showing up at set sites which makes you go hmmmm. Keep up with the info!

Aquaman’s film date was moved from June to November, 2018. Why? Oh, I don’t know. * whistling * Maybe because June, 2018 is the 80th anniversary of a character who started it all. MOS2 or whatever they are calling it has to come out in June, 2018. Or their universe becomes invalid.

Right now they can’t even hint of it before Justice League because at present Superman is dead in the DCEU. But anyone worth their superhero fan status knows that Superman is resurrected and comes back bigger than ever.

So get ready to spend some money, fanboys. Keep the faith. Believe! After Justice League, Superman will show more of his stuff off in June, 2018. Why do I think that? Back before BvSDOJ was announced. MOS2 was slated for 2018. Then it got “taken off the list.” Not because it was canceled but because of what they are doing within the DCEU storyline. In 2015, CEO of Warner Brothers Kevin Tsujihara said there would be another Superman stand alone film. Do the research!

These films are interconnected. Some of them are even filmed at the same time. Batman in Suicide Squad while also in BvSDOJ. The Flash had cameos in Suicide Squad and BvSDOJ. Aquaman cameo in BvSDOJ. Wonder Woman in BvSDOJ and then Wonder Woman.

Like the Death of Superman in the comics, Superman was taken away from the books for a period so his come back would have the world rejoicing. They’re doing the same thing with the trailers and publicity for Justice League. Get ready for a MOS2 clip at the end of Justice League people!

There are many surprises in store for Justice League. Just follow who was in London during filming.

Kudos to Vegan Hero, who, in my opinion, had one of the best reaction videos. They reacted! Animated. Not silent. No talk over. Picked up a lot of things on first look. Smart. You can see it here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aea0FROYHCI

There will be one more trailer before Justice League in November. Can’t wait.

PS The moustache fiasco – just more fake news in my opinion. Think about it. I don’t care who Tom Cruise is. Warner Brothers is not going to spend millions of dollars taking off a moustache using CGI when all Cavill has to do is shave and have MI6 give him a fake one. Remember these film productions are overseen by bean counters. Justice League has to make a profit. MI6 will just have to take the hit and have Cavill be prettier than Cruise. bwahahahha
