    Gotta love comic con @XxRichiexRichxX







    I think they've lost me with Arrow, i'm nowhere near as hyped as i use to be for this show. Like i'm still intrigued but i can't help but think they are doing damage control. Like we see the promise he made to Laurel now and it's what...training a group of young heroes? I dunno man

    Flash on the other hand? I'm hooked left, right and centre :joy:

    I can see this being amazing man!

    Never finished LOT, but saw most of the finale. Looks pretty cool, will watch that. Interested in their incorporation of the JSA.

    Yeah i can definitely see the damage control element. I can't see the show going on for more than maybe 1 more season after this next unless they do something amazing with it to recover. Killing Laurel is going to prove to be their biggest mistake. Too many die hard comic book/Green Arrow fans that are pissed about that. We will see what happens. I'm still going to give it a chance.

    Flash looks amazing, looks like an entirely new show to an extent, lol, with the flashpoint story line.

    I'm holding off on watching LOT trailer until I watch the first season lol

    Yeah man, so many are quitting on the show because of what they did. They've pretty much almost lost me now, i watched that finale with barely any excitement. Flash is the complete opposite, it's a comic book fans dream in terms of a tv show. They have been spot on and this flashpoint season could be bloody amazing!

    That's fair with LOT.

    Just came back from Tomorrowland, watching all these Comic-Con Trailers are fantastic. I like the Wonder Woman one the best. :o

    The wonder woman one was very interesting but as a Batman fan i really digged the JLA trailer.

    How was tomorrowland btw?

    I'm a huge Batman fan as well. I just can't be bothered with Zach Snyder. Only thing I like that he brings is the darker element, but overall BvS was a disappointment imo. Plus he seems to not like Superman. BvS the first trailer looked great, movie ended up being really underwhelming, I just fear the same will happen with Justice League. Would love to be wrong though

    yeah i get that but Geoff Johns is meant to be having major input in the film. Now that gives me hope.

    I hope so. They need to recover from BvS. Too much of that movie was rushed/didn't make sense. DC just needs to quit forcing things feeling like they have to match Marvel right away. Just take their time.

    Yeah they defo do need to recover, think Geoff Johns can really do that. Man is a creative genius.

    I thought arrow was cancelled after season 2 and replaced with a show called 'Felicity and friends'?

    JLA also looked really good, Aquaman seemed interesting, not sure about the Flash though

    Tomorrowland was a one in a life time experience! Will probably have a hangover for a week though, but what a paradise it was!

    I'm just waiting for someone to say it was "made for the fans" that's the excuse if critics say it is a mediocre-bad movie right?

    Comic book fans are going to have more of a appreciation for a film than casual movie watchers. Just like they will be more critical in some areas as well. Only natural.

    It's why i think Afflecks Batman is the greatest Batman ever on screen as it's the closest Batman to the comics and source material.

    Lmao. That Martha moment, made me consider getting up and walking out. Just sayin. I loved Bens batman, but I didn't like the movie.

    But on Suicide Squad, it's not even like I'm seeing mixed reviews, they've all been bad...I'm still going to check it out, but I've already accepted the outcome. Hoping if wrong

    here you go @LFC Simon 98

    I went to go see it but had some unfortunate circumstances had me leave about 20 mins into it, luckily got a free pass for another movie so i plan on going back this weekend to watch it.

    My stepdad who I went with to see it, who's really big on comic books and even used to own a comic book store, probably a bigger movie critic than me, said it was pretty good. He was it was definitely better than the critics made it out to be, said it was much better than BvS. I asked him to compare to BvS because me and him shared a similar opinion on BvS in that we didn't think it was good.

    I will say, in the scenes that I saw of Joker, I wasn't a big fan. I love Leto as an actor, and I'm not going in with the mindset of "he'll never be better than Ledger" or anything like that, I always go in open minded, I just felt like he was trying too hard and forcing it a bit. Margot Robbie seemed to be an incredible Harley Quinn as I expected

    I loved the movie. The only gripe I have with it is the pacing and editing of the first 3rd. Felt kind of choppy and weird but as it settled in, it got better. Joker, Harley, Deadshot and Enchantress made it for me. The action was awesome. Sucks that some of the characters took a back seat but if anyone knows the Suicide Squad comics, it's nothing new. Shoot some in the comics straight up die and that's what they're there for haha. Overall very enjoyable movie and the acting/characters made the weird editing tolerable.
