Re: Warner bros announce superhero films through 2020

I'm kinda surprised we'll have to wait so long for Shazam. I figured given the casting news, it would be next out of the gate after Batman v. Superman. I'm not really familiar with Ezra Miller so I can't comment on him as an actor, but my first thought is they've cast yet another young brunette pretty boy as the Flash. Oy.

Batman V Superman would be interesting. Gritty ...
Agreed on the surprising wait for Shazam.

Re: Warner bros announce superhero films through 2020

I'm not confident in WB's creative approach to these films, but it is a very good thing to see a slate that definitively includes a female-led solo movie and at least two solo movies (Aquaman and Cyborg) that will have nonwhite leads. Marvel now lags behind in both those categories.

Interesting that their Flash, Ezra Miller, is two years younger than Grant Gustin. They clearly intend it to be a separate continuity, but I wonder if they deliberately chose to go with a similar type of actor due to the show's positive buzz.

Miller was quite the sociopath in WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, prior to playing a gay student in THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER. But he's a nicely offbeat choice.

I have to admit, I've never heard of him. But I like that he's an offbeat indie choice, rather than a generic hunk-of-the-week.

I wonder what implications, if any, this will have for the tv Flash.

Re: Warner bros announce superhero films through 2020

So WW is actually going to come out before Justice League? I thought the assumption was that they'd release JL first and then use that as a springboard for all the other standalone movies.

It's definitely cool if it's true, because I think the character deserves to get her own showcase movie beforehand.

And yeah, they really are going young with the new Flash. Not remotely familiar with the actor, but he's going to have his hands full competing with the great new Flash actor on TV.

Surprised to see another standalone Green Lantern movie as well. Even with a new actor and director, I figured that's the LAST character Warners would take a chance on with a standalone movie again.

The show will continue to be popular while the movie will come and go, assuming it even gets made. Look at what happened with Superman Returns and both Snow White movies.

Good looking WB. May the Old Gods (Norse) and the New Gods smile upon you.

I'd be surprised if half of those actually get made.

I have serious doubts about Cyborg and GL, but the others seem very likely, even if they aren't released on the exact dates revealed today.

Probably none. Since they cast a different actor, presumably they intend to keep the continuities separate. In fact, given that the Flash was the only new character whose casting they announced in the press release, maybe they specifically wanted to make it clear that the movies were separate from the show.

Although, oddly, I saw a press release for the movie announcement describing the Flash as a scientist who woke from a coma to discover he had powers, and I'm pretty sure the coma is unique to the new show. Either the press-release writer got confused, or WB is trying to capitalize on the show's popularity, while still maintaining a separate continuity from it.
