Hot take - there's no bad Batman performance. It's the greatest superhero role because the character can literally be anything or played any way.

The versatility and interpretations Batman allows.

DC had a presentation at ComicCon Brazil, and they showed the title cards for the following movies:

Wonder Woman II

Aquaman

Flashpoint

Justice League Dark

Suicide Squad 2

Batgirl

Shazam

Green Lantern Corps

The Batman

 

Nothing about the Cyborg, Justice League 2, Gotham City Sirens, Harley Quinn, Joker/Harley, Deadshot, Black Adam, Deathstroke or Joker movies. Comicbook.com says some of those might not be in the DCEU, so that's probably why they weren't included in this presentation.

watched Justice League today.

liked it quite a bit more than i thought i would. Most of my criticisms are small and didn't take me away from the movie too much. Definitely the best of the bunch. (disclaimer: i haven't seen Wonder Woman). Much props. I absolutely hated Man of Steel, thought Batman v Superman was ok, and enjoyed JL. not a bad upswing.

Saw JL today. Liked it well enough. Didn't change the world or anything, but it was fun. What bugged me the most was Superman's CGI'd lips on that opening clip. And, honestly, that scene/clip didn't even really serve much purpose and could've been left out completely and not been missed.

Like most, I liked the badassery of Aquaman and Flash's wide-eyed newbie act was fun. Didn't like Cyborg's look or movements when he had the full CGI body, but his character was OK. Out of all the DC movies, I'd say this is near the top. Maybe #2 after Wonder Woman?

I just watched that clip on comicbookmovie.com now. Holy shit it's bad. I couldn't help but think of Bo' Selecta.

Finally saw JL today.  There were a lot of great little moments, and it was cool to see Cavill finally be a Clark who feels like Clark.  But the almost anti-Kirby take on the Fourth World made me really unhappy.

This is exactly my sentiment about JL and that feeling is probably magnified by an order of ten given the full on embrace of Kirby in Thor: Ragnarok.

JL was definitely an improvement in the DCU, but I'd at least like to see some tribute paid to the artists and writers that came up with the original concepts.

I think they are trying too hard to make the DCU... cool.... but the best thing about the best DC superhero movie so far is how nerdy it felt and how faithful it was to the original material...

So, all of the footage in Snyder's workprint of JL that was cut from the final movie is wild.

Just a list of characters that were removed:

Spoiler

Darkseid

Iris West

Ares

Heggra

Elinore Stone

Vulko

Pa Kent Force Ghost

Tomar Re

Kilowog 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even if it's released in a rough "Donner Cut" form, Snyder deserves to have his version seen. I'm not the biggest fan of his vision, but his JL certainly seems to be one of a piece with MoS and BvS, and those movies did have their supporters. I'm sure they'll do it at some point after the initial Bluray/streaming of the theatrical cut.

Zack Snyder still has no goddamn clue about Superman.

ETA: Snyder is working on a The Fountainhead adaptation? It all makes so much more sense now.

FADE IN:

EXT. Cityscape - Day

We see a muted color palette montage of evil socialist architecture structures to the soundtrack of a slow, haunting piano ballad version of Muskrat Love.

Thank you to all responsible for me not having to sit through this version in theaters. 

I mean theirs so much there they did away with that some of it didn’t need to go but the key is it’s way too much stuff to try and squeeze on top of what we got.

Didn't Sean Young get cast as Catwoman, then dropped when she became difficult on a different movie?

She was cast as Vicki Vale in the first film and broke her ankle getting thrown off a horse in one of the first scenes they shot with her. Kim Basinger was her replacement.

I disagree. Bale's Captain Growly Batman is awful in Dark Knight and Dark Knight Returns.
