I'm still mainly pissed about Affleck but Pattinson will apparently be the lead in the next Christopher Nolan film, if Nolan trust him, I guess I can give him a chance.

^ Uh, it’s a Matt Reeves movie, not a Chris Nolan movie. Matt Reeves is known for being a part of JJ Abrams’s projects in some way. The Batman (and the new Joker movie) is gonna be one of the first theatrical DC films in a while to not have Nolan anywhere in production at all.

Sorry I wasn't clear, Nolan's next film post Dunkirk which hasn't been titled yet has cast Pattinson as one of the leads with John David Washington & Elizabeth Debecki.
My point was if Nolan trust his acting enough to cast him as the lead in one of his major films, I can give him a chance as Batman. I think Reeve's The Batman will be coming out afterwards so the Nolan film will get audiences pumped for Pattinson as Batman if he is good in that film

Ah, I see.

To be fair, absolutely none of us has followed Robert Patterson's extensive low-budget art-house filmography he's been starring in since the Twilight saga, so I don't know if we really know what the current Robert Patterson is like as an actor.

Speaking of which The Lighthouse (by the director of The Witch) is getting good reviews st least.
A quote from one...
"Pattinson has been working at seemingly the peak of his acting prowess over the past two years in films such as Good Time and High Life, but he may have topped himself here. Usually known for playing the strong, silent type, Pattinson portrays with deep seeded frustration below the surface until he slowly reaches a passionate roar. The 33-year-old actor has simply never been this raw on screen before. There are moments where Pattinson is so transformative it’s jarring. You simply never thought he had it in him"

I will try & see The Lost City of Z at some point.

True story but I have had the X-Men Apocalypse DVD in my possession for three years and today I sat down and watched it for the first time from start to finish without reaching for the remote.

And how did I feel about the third entry in the official second X-Men trilogy? Much like how Return of the Jedi is memorable and has good action sequences but still can't top Empire Strikes Back, Apocalypse has all those goodies and yet has the burden of coming out of Days of Future Past's shadow. But I still found myself at the edge of my seat with anticipation of how will the situation right itself and the visuals really are grandiose. This is why I watch superhero movies, also to be inspired by the convictions that the two sides express in order to justify why they fight for their causes. Overall, I give it a 7/10.

“It's very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It's told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He's supposed to be the world's greatest detective, and that's not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I'd love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it's going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.”


I’ve been hoping for a Batman movie focused on mysteries and detective work over the big save the city plots. I’m cautiously optimistic about this.

Swamp Thing has already been cancelled due to an *accounting error.* The production was promised a $40 million tax rebate and will receive only a $13 million rebate, and so the higher ups killed it in the cradle.

I haven’t seen the pilot yet but I was really hoping this would be good.

Swamp Thing could be made on $13 million, wtf is going on with these productions? Especially for these subscription exclusive titles, you don’t want to depend on old newspaper business models in order to recoup high business expenses.

Apparently the show is CGI heavy?

I’ve read a bunch of other news that makes it look like the DC app is going to fold or just be for comics. If this kills Young Justice *again* I swear on me mum.

They can't cancel it yet. They still have three series that are being developed: Stargirl, Harley Quinn, and Metropolis.

Is Metropolis some kind of street-view Superman show, or a Gotham prequel? I’d be really interested in the former, not so much in the latter.

I read “Metropolis” and I still think of either the Fritz Lang film or its Osamu Tezuka/Rintaro animated adaptation.

If the Superman version doesn’t include a mediator of the head to the hands being the heart, it’s gonna miss out on a lot of current economical commentary.

So I finally saw Venom honestly I don't get why the critics said this was a bad movie, like I thought the black comedy in it was halrious I like how venom was perfectly captured as this snarking asshole who you kind of grow to like despite his comments and I loved how they did the CGI him on screen and I think Hardy was perfect to play Eddy because he fits that kind of dark places guy but with a heart of gold.

SPOILER: Show
I also like that as he is merging with venom he's really sick and acting weird and hands down one of venoms funniest comments is "Outstanding. Now, let's bite all their heads off, and pile them up in the corner." and the your a loser I'm a loser plot line really works here since there going for the anti hero plot line from the comics and I am really interested for the sequel as I hate Carnage (Including the comic version the guys vile) and want to see venom create him by mistake then waste him. Like this is the venom I wanted in the Spiderman 3 but never got because Rami just had a huge misfire and misunderstood the character in a huge way along with Eddy.

Like the only weak plot line in this if you could call it that is the ex girlfriend plot because even the person I watched it with said when she finds out he stole her stuff she's not angry enough and her sudden ditching of Eddy feels far to left field because you got no under currents that anything was wrong in the relationship up to this point and even I felt that it needed those undertones and for her to get super pissed and to blow up when she looses her job.
Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy.

If there's any problem with Venom is that's Eddie isn't *enough* of a fuckup. He shouldn't
SPOILER: Show
get back together with his ex at the end.


I look forward to
SPOILER: Show
Woody Harrelson as Carnage because... fuck lol why not.


So far, Venom is the only "superhero movie that takes a different direction from Marvel in the Marvel era" that has actually worked, besides *maybe* Deadpool. It's refreshingly joyful in its own stupidity. The stupid shit in comic books can be fun.

So, I watched the first four episodes of Swamp Thing.

It figures that It’s the best thing DC has put our live action wise and they killed it in the cradle.

Very well done series, and the creature effects are amazing.

EDIT...
What If? will be animated.
Zemo confirmed for Falcon & Winter Soldier and he will have his classic mask.
Fu Manchu is Shang Chi's father in the comics so they are just having The Mandarin stand in for him.

Mahershala Ali confirmed for Mcu's Blade!
https://twitter.com/Marvel/status/1152756106772516867
Unclear if it's for a show or movie.

The second trailer for HBO's Watchmen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yKq1PRvPJQ

Love the details in there with Robert Redford being listed at the school as the post Nixon President and the drawing of the squid.
Don Johnson's character has a lot going on with him, he is the chief of police + possibly being involved with the Rorschach cult judging by him going tick tock in the last teaser and here he is flying Nite Owls's ship either by police confiscation or he is actually Dan.
