Never cared for Transformer films before thanks to those awful pointlessly busy and over developed designs. But these G1 inspired designs won me over instantly :wub: :wub: :wub: I'm gonna buy this even though Cena is in it.

Soundwave :nod: :nod: :nod:

I'm not completely sold on the Joker's makeup in this new film, but Preezy is right...

Leto's Joker looked so terrible because it was too contrived and deliberate. Ledger's better represented the chaotic nature of the Joker because it was more haphazardly applied to his face, he looked grimy and unhinged, and I think Pheonix's is more along this line of design


...I agree.

I've always considered myself more a DC fan than a Marvel fan overall, but even I think the DCEU needs to be scrapped altogether. It's just a strawberry floating mess. Outside of the comics I'm more than content with Nolan's efforts and the animations, the latter of which are consistently good.

While I'm definitely more of a Marvel fan, I do enjoy DC and they've completely strawberry floated the whole thing up. Normally I'd have said let's see how Aquaman and Shazam do, but with Cavill and Affleck gone, the core of their whole universe is held up by Wonder Woman alone. There's no doubt they could recast (Infinite Earths and all that), but it's a huge stretch, especially after they've already brought Superman back from the dead.

They need to scrap the whole thing and take some time to come up with a well thought out plan for what they want to do and how they're going to do it. If that means copying the Marvel formula of establishing characters and a universe first before getting their big team-up movie then so be it. They need to make us care about them individually before we give a damn about them together. Which is a shame as individually they had a fantastic cast, they just wasted every one of them with shite to middling at best movies.

Just been looking into it and the current DCEU isn't going anywhere. There are even films pencilled in for 2020. :dread:

Truth be told though, I'm only really into the Batman universe these days. It's always been my favourite, ever since I was a nipper, and as I said above the Nolan movies and animated films are very good. Plus I really enjoyed Gotham and can't wait for the final season next year.

The DCEU films have been generally poor, though. Watched Wonder Woman at my children's request a couple of months back and I couldn't believe how utterly forgettable it was, and that was supposed to be one of the better films!

As for Marvel, I haven't watched any of the Marvel films since GotG 2, but that's not an affront to their overall quality, I'm just not that into the Marvel universe, never have been. What I had watched up to that point were, a few turkeys aside, enjoyable and certainly better than WB/DC's recent output on the big screen.

Xmen Dark Phoenix trailer is out later today. ..

Will make Justice League look like the Dark Knight. It's been delayed multiple times, all test screenings got poor feedback and no one in it wants to be in it anymore. So that's something to look forward to later.

Hadn't even heard of this. First Class and Days of Future Past were so good, I can't believe how rapidly they seem to be strawberry floating this.

The rumor was that Marvel didn't want it released as they want to launch Xmen again when it comes back to them. New Mutants is also coming out and has also been delayed and they even re filmed parts of it to add a new character.

Would love a new X-Men movie at Marvel with Jim Lee style costumes and loads of bright colours. Plus a good Cyclops and Jubilee. Also Omega Red. Basically the 90s cartoon

strawberry floating hell DC. :fp: :lol:

According to writer Glenn Ficarra, the movie opens with Joker and Harley abducting the famed TV psychologist, who will "hopefully" be played by Phil McGraw himself. Yup, the DCEU is about to join the illustrious ranks of Frasier, Hannah Montana, and Madea Goes To Jail in offering an acting role to Dr. Phil. The closest analogue, though, might be Scary Movie 4, which similarly opens with an imprisoned Dr. Phil, locked in a Saw-like filthy bathroom -- though presumably the Joker movie won't also throw Shaq into the equation.

Disappointingly, the villainous duo aren't kidnapping Phil purely out of malice, or to get some ransom money out of Oprah, but rather to solicit free relationship advice.

The above isn’t from the Joaquin Phoenix movie btw, but from another Joker movie that they’re doing. :fp:

At least Wonder Woman 2 will be good. Aqua man looks erm.... CGI heavy and they used the term swashbuckling to describe it......Which is Hollywood code for it'll bomb strawberry floating hard.

Shazam will hopefully be good, hopefully it's good enough for Black Adam not get pulled.

It'll probably still be more entertaining than the Todd Phillips Joker movie. That film will likely be up its own arse whereas this one could be a crazy car crash spectacle of nonsense.

I'm looking forward to the upcoming Shazam! film as I thought the trailer looked entertaining and I enjoyed watching Zachary Levi in Chuck. Beyond that I'm not that interested in anything else coming from DC, why are there two separate films about the Joker with different actors?

The guy who made The Hangover and Old Skool means the movie is going to be up its own arse? :slol:

Yes please, this has to lead onto a proper G1 transformers film. My concern though is that firstly the last transformers film may have ruined the appeal of this film and a lot will just avoid without researching the film and secondly this film was clearly conceived as a prequel to the bayformers films but has been tweaked a lot during production. I hope this is a success and leads to a proper G1 film so much.

Interestingly the international trailer is very different.

I was pretty surprised myself, but as I watched each Hangover film they got bizarrely pretentious. By the 3rd one it genuinely seemed like Todd Phillips thought these films had something to say, that the characters were in any way memorable or that the films were anything more than serviceable filler (I did really like the first one initially, but it didn't age well). In this time he also made Due Date which was honest to god one of the worst films I sat through for a good 10-month period. Him writing a supposed 'character piece' off the back of the dross he's pumped out in the last decade is the most off-putting thing about this film. Cherry on top is that it's strawberry floating Warner Bros and DC.

Would like to be wrong. Phoenix could be fun in the role, but his best roles have often come when working with filmmakers that could genuinely be solid shouts for the best of their generation.
