I'm bummed the priority after Justice League is Aquaman, rather than, say, Wonder Woman.
How do you know this? Just because we get news about Aquaman doesn't mean anything about Wonder Woman.

More of the fact that it's of Aquaman's movie that we're hearing about first before news of a Wonder Woman movie. In that WB/DC are confident enough to share/let leak THIS bit of info, but nothing for Wonder Woman.

I still feel that a Justice League movie wouldn't be out of place before we get either Wonder Woman/aquaman or captain marvels solo films.....introduce the characters in JL movie....then expand on the universe after that with whoever they decide

Wonder Woman won't get a solo movie cause they either don't have enough faith in her being the lead of a film or they're afraid it'll turn into another Green Lantern. take your pick on what you think is wrong with the heads at WB/DC. probably the whole reason they have a GL/Flash team-up on the slate is they don't have any more faith in GL holding a movie on his own. even though it COULD work. WW on her own COULD work. I just see it as them losing faith and being afraid. hell they probably wouldn't of even TRIED for a Justice League theatrical movie if Avengers hadn't totally succeeded at the box office like it did.

I'm just hoping there will be a Cyborg, Flash, and Green Arrow movie eventually...

Other than that, I'm looking forward to watching the Batman v. Superman movie.

Rumor: There's a company mandate at WB that states that DC Movies CANNOT have jokes in them.

The rationale being that:

1.) Green Lantern flopped because it had too many jokes

2.) Nolan Batman did exceptionally well BECAUSE it was grimdark serious.

I hope to god this isn't true and the other guy was just trolling, since this is beyond moronic. And that WB's stopped digging at the 6 ft mark and are digging straight to China now.

Maybe they want it to be so bad its good? I don't know but MOS had very little humor in it. You need humor even in TDK there was a lot of dark humor in it. Which was lacking in TDKR to cut that tone which is why its the weakest in the trilogy. You can't depress movie goers Nolan knew this while he wrote a tragic tale in TDK he made damn sure it was still a entertaining movie to watch.

That's dumb. The Nolan series may have been pretty grimdark and serious, but there were still plenty of jokes here and there. Hell, remember Joker's little "Why isn't the hospital blowing up?" scene?

Calling total BS on that.

I think it was a mistake but Heath ran with it. Which shows how smart of an actor he is. You had 1 shot for a scene like that and it was going wrong. Had he just called it quits like some actors that scene would of cost the company a lot of money for nothing. However he ran with it and it was just comedy gold.

Which brings me back to the point of you need humor. I'm not saying make it as campy as some of Marvel films. However humor is a tool to cut tension in a film. If its to tense of a film and you don't cut those moments it hurts the film. War of Arrows is probably one of my favorite Korean films ever. It used comedy as a scalpel where it just cut the tension perfectly. You have these big heights in the tension then cut build up again and cut. All placed at the right moments in the film that it allowed you to invest and take into account whats going on in different places. For when it ended it was well worth the wait.

It was a mistake. The detonation didn't go off for real and Heath improvised.

In fact, nearly everything Joker did was improvised. Think of that what you will.

How is this a rumor?

How is anyone stupid enough to think this is even possible, let alone accurate?

Given DC's mandates, past and present, it would not surprise me and this is depressing.

And the fact that it was kept in the final film shows Nolan was more than willing to have his little humorous moments.

Plus, look at Alfred. He was full of quips throughout the films.

Well, that and a retake would have entailed building the entire structure over again just so they'd have something to blow up.

But seriously, no one is saying that there isn't any comic relief in DC's movies. This is about the overall tone of the films. You don't have to be completely devoid of jokes to be "joyless". Would you classify the general atmosphere of Man of Steel as "fun"? You might have fun watching it, but does the film itself have the spirit of fun in it? I'm guessing "no". I certainly don't think so. The movie leans very much to the dramatic side.

And that's not what a Superman movie should be. It needs the childlike wonder of the MCU movies, not because Marvel is inherently better (it isn't), but because Marvel got it right. Instead, they tried to borrow some of the atmospheric tone from the Batman movies, even though that doesn't fit Superman at all.

Even then, to say the Nolan trilogy is completely without intentional humor is completely false.

That's what I keep saying about a certain show, but people tell me I'm stupid.

I'm just gonna stop you right there, because I'm sick of hearing that. "This is what it's SUPPOSED to be." No. It may be what YOU want, but re-interpretations are common.

It needs the childlike wonder of the MCU movies, not because Marvel is inherently better (it isn't), but because Marvel got it right.
And here we go again. It's like people are incapable of making their points without bringing up "Marvel vs. DC".

Instead, they tried to borrow some of the atmospheric tone from the Batman movies, even though that doesn't fit Superman at all.
Which is funny, considering the majority of the BAtman action-y stuff takes place at night, with only one notable exception, while the majority of MoS takes place during the day. I'd call that a pretty notable difference.

I don't give a fuck if you're sick of hearing it. It's worth saying, so we're going to keep saying it. You're going to sit there and tell us that decades of the character's portrayal don't constitute what the character should be? That the predominant interpretation somehow doesn't hold higher esteem than alternatives? Superman's characterization has varied over his publishing history, but he's rarely if ever been the mopey, conflicted whiner we see in MoS. What is gained by this characterization? What is gained by stripping the story of the goofy fun normally associated with the character? You're the one supporting a change in the general approach to the character, so you have to justify it. I'm defending the status quo: I don't have to justify shit.
