    Don't forget that soon we'll see Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman with Jeremy Irons as Alfred while on TV there will be David Mazous as young Bruce opposite Sean Pertwee as Alfred. As far as I know, this will be the first time we get to see differing but concurrent versions of Batman. In the past, WB has been careful not to have two versions airing at or even close to the same time. Hence the original Bruce Wayne TV series (which would've predated Smallville) got nixed in case it trod on the in-development Batman Begins, hence no Bruce in Smallville and for all I know it's the reason why Batman never appeared in Lois and Clark.

    I think this approach makes sense. So will we be getting the next team up movie after JL.
    I wonder if they'll use just Superman for all of the team up movies, or if they'll change it up. I'd rather see them do something like Batman/Flash, Wonder Woman/Green Lantern, Green Lantern/Martian Manhunter, ect., rather than just Superman/Flash, Superman/Wonder Woman, ect.

    It doesn't need to be just pairing. A lot of great comic stories have groups of characters. There could be a Rann/Thanagar war movie with the Green Lantern Corps for example. Or a Themyscira based story with a Birds of Prey style cast. Maybe a young justice movie?

    I imagine they'd have different pairings so the filming will overlap and they can just roll out the films one after the other.

    Or they could just make really good Justice League movies where the focus could be on a central character but everyone will be there too. We don't need countless origin stories.

    I mean JL 1 would feature Superman, JL 2 Batman, JL 3 Wonder Woman, JL 4 The Flash...etc.

    Sorry, probably makes no sense. LOL.

    ETA: JL movies with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Green Lantern as the focus but other JL members involved and they could do side movies as solo or team-ups in between. Too much for WB to consider. Ha!

    Did the last Terminator film come out while Chronicles was airing? Must have been close.

    The way those movies played fast and loose with the TV continuity would probably drive the message boards mad if they did something like that today.

    It was in production while the show was on the air and was released about a month after the show's final episode aired.

    Hiddleston would be a fantastic Joker. I guess he doesn't mind playing comic book villains.

    I doubt there's any truth in the rumor.

    Pictures leaked of a Superman Statue. I guess Superman DID rebuild Metropolis after the invasion of General Zod.

    Maybe they forgot that Superman was the reason the Kryptonians came to earth in the first place?

    People have short attention spans, they were no doubt distracted by a crazed horse owner bullying wheelchair bound children.

    I really hope that ugly pebbly texture is only for the statue, and not a new feature of the costume.

    Yeah, as it is I didn't like the last texture at all.

    Can't really blame Superman for that, it was the drone ship that sent out the signal that drew them to earth.
