This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

And Ezra Miller gets nailed for burglary immediately ::)

I heard rumors last week that more bad news about him were about to come out (this happened on May, 1st but only now he was charged). I honestly expected worse.

If the final quote is true, they plan on going ahead with The Flash, IIRC Batgirl and Supergirl were to be setup in that movie, so what gives?

Also how many of this fucker are there?

There are probably a bunch of different ways they can successfully reboot the DC movies.

At the very least, they've already tried out the shitty grimdark approach, so they've eliminated one failure mode.

I mean, if they wanted to, they could just cold open a new Justice League movie with a completely new cast. We know who these characters are.

As long as it's not the even shittier Marvel Humor approach.

I'm not sure I understand what you're referring to specifically. Are you complaining about Thor, or GOTG, or Ant-Man, or Iron Man?

The single biggest problem the DCEU caused to itself was that we never had a Batman movie. He was always a co-host with someone else, while even Aquaman, The Flash, Shazam, Batgirl, Supergirl and Wonder Woman got their movies.

Since 1989, we've had:
  • Batman (1989)
  • Batman Returns (1992)
  • Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)
  • Batman Forever (1995)
  • Batman & Robin (1997)
  • Batman Begins (2005)
  • The Dark Knight (2008)
  • The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
And that's not counting Batman vs Superman, Justice League, Suicide Squad (2016) and The Lego Batman Movie.

This is the sound of the world's tiniest Bat-Violin playing.

They can re-shoot the parts with Ezra Miller with another actor, as I wrote. This would cost about $100 millions. Re: introducing Batgirl and Supergirl, since you are reshooting big chunks of the movie anyway just cut those parts. They already have to cut Batgirl.

Exactly. No one of this movies was part of the DCEU. Like "The Batman" or "Joker" they existed in their own universes (the "Dark Knight Trilogy" is also known as "the Nolanverse"). The DCEU started with "Man of Steel" in 2013 - and we never had a proper Batman movie with Ben Affleck in it.

...And in the DCEU Batman was always the co-host with someone else, as I wrote. If anything, it is surreal that we had scores of Batman movies but no one in the DCEU. Having Michael Keaton returning as an older Batman in "Batgirl", "Aquaman 2" and "The Flash", BTW, was also a continuity error, as Keaton belonged to still another universe - but Affleck had to be phased out to give space to the new grrl-power trilogy.

I am complaining about ALL of the Marvel Movies made under Disney, they aren't superhero movies, they are comedies with superheroes.

Yeah, they could reshoot the movie, that would mean they are confident enough it will make well over 800 million.

Have you seen the hit pieces for the cancellation of superlatinx? Can you imagine the media shitstorm if they cut Miller from the movie?

Well, given the ammount's of crimes he is commiting, it sure looks like there's a ton of them.[/spoiler]

Or they will just sigh and take a hit hoping that it will be the last one. Apparently the movie itself is good, whereas "Batgirl" was just shitty. Anyway, the new management aims to rebuild a sane DCEU in the next ten years, not tomorrow. There is a little that they can do with what they inherited.

Of course the REEEEE was strong with this one (they even cut her transexual friend... can you imagine?) And of course everybody is enraged that the superlatinx will not come out paid with someone else's money. ::)

Right now, however, I don't think that Ezra Miller can be defended. IMHO, the music will shift towards "of course a single black sheep will not ruin the valor of THE MESSAGE".

Clearly, the public is crying out for a classic Latino superhero. One who needs no introduction, no backstory to fill in.

In all honesty, they should definitely do this. Everybody loves Speedy Gonzales, especially the Hispanic community.

He's cute, he's a campesino, and he doesn't start trouble but he always wins.

You're going to have to recast the voice anyway, hire a Mexican actor and you're golden.

Yeah, but they wanted to get a Justice League movie out within a reasonable time frame, and Batman and Superman had a ton of movie exposure already.

I'm also not that sad because while I did like Affleck in the role, I didn't like MurderBatman.
