[up][up] Catwoman these days is more a hero that pretends to be a morally ambiguous person.

Lupita Nyongo as Catwoman sounds amazing. How's her Eartha Kitt impression, I wonder? tongue

So, I know this isn't a DC movie, but recently the cast of Free Guy, including Ryan Reynolds and Taika Waititi, had an interview about working together:

[up] Ryan Reynolds and Taika Waititi are going to pretend Green Lantern never happened for as long as they live, aren't they? [lol][lol][lol]

Now I kinda want to see either one of them have a super-minor cameo in the eventual DCEU!Green Lantern movie just to for the lolz.

You know, I was going to post how Rhianna had been cast as Poison Ivy and how that was pretty good casting, but then I realized that it was a parody account and that fucking sucks.

IT'S NOT PARODY IF YOU AREN'T BEING FUNNY. THEN IT'S JUST LIES, YOU DIPSHITS.

I would have thought that use of "casted" would have been a pretty good giveaway it wasn't real.

WB is reportedly thinking of making a Lex Luthor film where he's the US President and Superman is merely fiction.

If this happens, I also want a Lois Lane movie and a Jimmy Olsen movie, dammit.

Nothing they can do with President Luthor can top reality, TBH.

Not sure if there's even really a point to a Lex Luthor story without Superman.

Anyway, today I learned the Coen Brothers were apparently asked to direct Batman (1989) before Tim Burton.

The idea of supervillain-focused films is a great one to separate DC from Marvel, if also a risky one (as observed by the controversy and mixed reception to Joker).

I'd like (since Joker was already a giant homage of Scorcese) a GoodFellas esque story about the rise of The Penguin in Gotham's underworld, or if they wanna really go hogwild, imagine a Dawn of the Planet of the Apes esque story of Gorilla Grodd in his gorilla commune.

If we're going to be remaking classic movies into superhero flicks, I demand Superman and Doomsday's Excellent Adventure.

Shame, I always feel that one of the issue I have with Joker-Harley is that since he dosent have a backstory or any relatable element(good or wrong) it make is relationship just come as generic.

Also Joker's backstory or relatability is unnecesary

Actually no he's not nothing but jerkassery.

He has his moments of treating her decent & even kind. They generally get along unless Joker gets in a really bad mood.

Which aligns with real life abusive relationships I believe. Joker wants to make sure he has control over her so of course he's not gonna treat her terribly 24/7.

A Joker who does that is just being written badly or a sign that the relationship is about to end permanently soon.

[up]Sure but often abuser put their on inadquecy on other people, and him bieng pure jearkass kinda work best when he goes solo that with her because him being jerk feel not diferent with harley that without her.

And that was in the animated series, in the comic he so edgy up that I even wonder why he try to kill her the first moment.

But anyway let talk that int he movie thread.

Everyone knows that a world with Lex Luthor but no Superman means that Luthor is already the supreme ruler of Earth. I mean, even Luthor admitted to Superman during the Silver Age that if it weren't for Supes, Luthor would have already conquered the world by now.

Venom and Joker at least have catchy designs and concepts on their own apart from their heroes.

Lex Luthor minus Superman is just a rich dude.

Amusingly Lex is more defined by his relationship to Superman than Joker's to Batman.

Without Supes Lex would be ruling the world without effort but with Supes Lex has the inferiority complex that makes him such a complex & interesting character.
