@blueninjapanther:

That DCUO opening intro is nuts. If the JL movie looks anything like that, i'll be happy.

Their wouldn't have been a DC cinematic Universe if Marvel hadn't come up with the idea first. You hardcore fan boys need to realize it's not always a straight up competition. Also you need to pay respect where it's due because you wouldn't even have this opportunity to witness this movie if it weren't for marvel paving the way.

I like both Marvel and DC, but Marvel paving the way? DC has been putting out superhero comic book movies way back before Marvel ever did. Richard Donner's Superman & Tim Burton's Batman paved the way for all comic book movies. I'll give credit to Marvel for being the first to create a shared cinematic universe, but eventually DC would have done the same.

I really wanna see the trailer for batman vs superman.

Lets just wait for the trailer before we start bashing the film prematurely.

Even if BvS flops critically it's still gonna make a billion dollars and it won't prevent WB from continuing forward with the rest of the films on their scheduled slate:

  • Suicide Squad (2016)
  • Wonder Woman (2017)
  • Justice League Part One (2017)
  • The Flash (2018)
  • Aquaman (2018)
  • Shazam (2019)
  • Justice League Part Two (2019)
  • Cyborg (2020)
  • Green Lantern (2020)

Not listed is Justice League Dark which is still being developed. Constantine, Swamp Thing, Zatanna etc. + the vision of Guillermo Del Toro??? You gotta be joking me, just take my money now. It's one of those projects you know its already going to be amazing.

Batman: Arkham Asylum movie. Entire movie takes place inside Arkham w/ Batman basically running the gauntlet. Just like The Raid & Dredd.

@username12345: I think Marvel's biggest problem has been the 2/3 of a movie analogue. They've got the story, the heroes but lack the villain.

It's been the same in pretty much all of Marvel's movies. Most big bad felt like an afterthought and cardboard cut-outs, which feels just wrong when everything else with the movies were so well thought out (mostly). I'm hoping they would finally manage to create a villain with some awe in the form of Ultron.

That's why Suicide Squad is such a genius move by DC by dedicating an entire movie on the villains they get to develop those characters. The villains in Suicide Squad will essentially act as heroes in that movie, so they'll have their own fanbase by the time the Justice League movie comes around. When they eventually do show up as villains in the next solo Batman/Superman/Flash movie whatever, it won't be just another "lame throw-away villain that nobody cares about."
