      @Abhi that’s why DC has something that Marvel isn’t doing & that’s called standalone universes, which is why now DC movies & TV shows has DC Elseworlds along with DCU.

    Having the story move back-and-forth from animation to live-action is smart. Saves money, plus, you can take more risks. And DC has been stellar in the past with their animated movies.

      @Marvel's The Punisher(1.0) año 2023 Well, how do you explain when the world keeps switching between two completely different art styles? And if it doesn't in-universe, how does everything canonically look? I want to see exactly what the characters see, not see through a cartoon lens and live-action lens. Things have to be consistent.

    Curious to see how The Flash is handled. Sounds like it will be a vehicle to reset everything (not unexpected, but not sure what that will mean for The Flash going forward). Still very excited for Blue Beetle. And, I hope since we are getting Damien Wayne as Robin that means we will already have Nightwing coming (and established as the original Robin). :)

      @michael knight I'm glad you said that, because growing up my top 4 favourite superheroes were Black Panther, Shazam, Ant-Man and Blue Beetle, all of which I was made fun of for liking, people saying things like "they're not cool characters" "nobody cares about them" all 3 now some of the best movies Marvel has made, so I have no doubt in my mind, if they follow the recipe, Blue Beetle will slap hard

    Honestly... What he's selling and the way he's selling it actually kinda peaks my interest and even makes me cautiously optimistic.
    If they manage to pull off the concept he sells, the 'linking/tying' different mediums (movies, series, games and animation) together in the way he says (by way of storylines, actors reprising their roles throughout the different mediums, etc.), they'll even be taking things a step further then Marvel and all while doing their own thing.
    Wasn't a fan of how Marvel clearly forced and anorganically tried to ty different mediums together sacrificing good things in the process like for instance the EMH Averngers cartoon, the Spectacular Spider-man cartoon and some of the Netflix series.
    Also, why bother trying to link a game to your cinematic universe if you're too cheap to make use of the actors? I for one hope Gunn 'll pull it of because DC deserves to shine as much as Marvel.

    Gunn is tasked with the Herculean effort of resetting DC's slate after ten years of sporadic fan favorite hits, terrible flops, and epic mismanagement. Actors, writers, and fans were all mistreated, but a few real gems made it through. I wish him luck and hoping the ship is righted. Also, Elseworlds is such a great idea. Allows experimentation and fun one offs without being saddled by Crisis of Infinite Earths levels of continuity brain-hurt.

      @Ben Black true, but they also thought it was a terrible movie (did bad in screenings, apparently) and they're saying the opposite about Flash[point], despite Ezra Miller's antics 🤷🏻‍♂️. They seem to think it's actually a really good film. And again, it's a convenient way to do a reboot. Batgirl was just a street level movie with no consequences for the DCEU, at large. They obviously thought they had nothing to lose, and not enough to gain from scrapping the Batgirl film.

      @Aesthetic Ballers Oh god, you’re one of those people who think a movie is a masterpiece because it got a good rotten tomato critic score or made a lot of money at the box office, but ok fine by that logic we are going to use your mindset and say with a straight face that all of Michael Bay’s transformer films are a masterpiece because it made a lot of money at the box office? Now don’t get me wrong you could like the films, it’s your opinion at the end of the day. But are you going to say that the films are objectively good for example does the film have plot holes, plot contrivances, inconsistent characterisations, inconsistent/bad world-building, inconsistent internal logic or objective examples of poor writing? If so and it ticks all or almost all the boxes then I am sorry to say this but your favourite film is objectively bad in a movie sense.
      The only good film Snyder made was man of steel because of the action, good music and pretty decent writing (I still haven’t watched justice league sc yet so I won't say anything and probably never will because it’s too long also not worth of my time to watch it).
