Everything DC

Margot Robbie is an honest to god Movie Star, and it's great to see her pushing that into pitching and producing.

This is terrible news for the movies, seeing as the comics have gone to shit since he took control of them.

It basically sounds like WB is giving Johns credit for Greg Berlanti's efforts.

Basically. On one hand, it makes sense to slightly follow Marvel's lead BUT Johns is still Johns.Putting Johns in charge just ensures that Hal Jordan shows up a little quicker.

Couldn't you attribute a measure of The Flash's success to Johns though? It's the show he's had the most involvement with, and the one that's doing the best critically and ratings-wise compared to Supergirl, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.

I get that Johns has been in major positions at DC for years, but the blowing needs to stop. Beyond GL what major things has he done exactly? Justice League was meant to be the new 52's flagship title and wasn't thanks to Snyder's Batman. I know he's the only person who loves Pre-Crisis DC (Didio only likes bits and pieces and Lee just likes Batman), but this notion that he's heading up the movie division being an angel from heaven is time-displaced by a decade or so.

Interesting bit from a great article about the current TV industry.

One Hollywood insider points to Greg Berlanti, who this season produced a half-dozen prime-time series for three networks, as an example of how the profit outlook for top showrunners has changed. “Greg’s doing fine,” this insider says. And yet, as recently as 2000 or so, “If you were a guy who had six series on the air, you'd be talking about making hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars. Greg would be Dick Wolf,” our source says. “But he's not.”

I don't know anything about this man or his projects, but having a nickname he goes by immediately makes me dislike him as a person, regardless of the quality of his output. It's the same deal as I have with Pitof, McG and J.J. Abrams.

Though I enjoyed that, especially the Barry and Aquaman portions, I'm guessing there won't be as much humor in the final product.

First off, no Superman? Second, why is Batman all the sudden a happy go lucky guy that throws jokes around like he's in a Marvel movie?

 

Edit: I forgot they "killed" Supes. He better show up in this.

Perhaps because he's no longer in danger of being murdered by an alien? Also, just because he doesn't appear in the preview footage shot specifically for the SDCC teaser doesn't mean he won't be in the movie. In fact I'd be surprised if most of this footage is in the final product. It's so far away from actually shooting.
