    Speaking of the animated movies, WonderCon@Home is going on this weekend and there was a panel on the upcoming Justice Society: World War II, featuring the voice cast (including Stana Katic and Matt Bomer), as well as the writing team of Meghan Fitzmartin & Jeremy Adams, and supervising producer Butch Lukic:

    Actually in reading the article "The Trench" was an Aquaman spin-off. The article says the Aquaman sequel is still moving forward.

    Personally if WB aren't going to continue the Snyder verse (New Gods would of expanded upon Snyder's Darkseid) then i'm not giving them anymore of my money for further DC projects.

    Another Suicide Squad trailer

    Well, that New Gods news in particular sucks (I enjoyed Aquaman but I was always a little on the fence about The Trench, no pun intended).

    I'm interested in the story of Justice Society: WW2, but I'm not really feeling the animation style tho. I hope that's not representative of the new DC animated universe going forward.

    I'm disappoint we're not getting the New Gods movie, but I've always been indifferent towards The Trench, so I'm not sad to lose it. I just never really saw the Trench as being interesting enough to get a whole movie devoted entirely to them.

    I would have been happier if they'd left out the Flash Time Travel stuff.

    Oh, wow, you could be right! I guess we'll see if it's still a thing in a few days. Seems like it's not huge enough news to be a "joke", though.

    The Hollywood Reporter doesn't generally report rumors or circulate false news.

    I don't think that would have been the case at all. New Gods were announced post Justice League release when they pretty much decided they weren't going to continue in that direction and the fact they cut Darkseid from the theatrical cut altogether suggests they wanted a clean slate for this movie.

    Still sucks though, I was very much looking forward to it.

    I was looking forward to a proper New Gods movie, with actual color and designs that would (presumably) actually look like the New Gods, so that is disappointing, although Snyder has probably ruined the New Gods for general audiences right now. Hopefully they give it five-ish years and when the stink of the Snyderverse is gone they can bring it back without the baggage of whiny Snyder stans complaining that the New Gods project doesn't resemble his crap. Well, ok, many snyder stans will never stop complaining now that WB was stupid enough to give in to them once, but hopefully more of them will have moved on the next time DC tries a New Gods project.

    Also, I just realised that Tom King was connected to the film, and he does not give a shit about the New Gods (even the people that like his Mr. Miracle book generally seem to agree that he isn't interested in the New Gods as charcters or as a concept, he just used them to tell the story he had in his head in that book), so its probably for the best that this project was shut down for now.

    As for The Trench, I liked the Aquaman film a lot but the Trench in the comics sucked (like all of Geoff Johns Aquaman stuff), and it was a really unneeded spinoff, so I'm glad to see it go.

    Then WB made a self-defeating mistake by authorizing the true JL film at all, because the world now sees a live-action Darkseid, how he was going to be used, and that's something audiences of a film just released are not going to forget as WB tries another pointless reboot.

    If the Darkseid in the New Gods movie looked and sounded nothing like the Darkseid in JL, and he lived on an Apokolips that looked nothing like the Apokolips in JL, I think most people would have been intelligent enough to figure out it was a new version of the character.
    If you bring in people like Ava Duvernay and Tom King to write and direct your movie, you're going to give them the freedom to do their own thing.

    ^Yeah, I thought DC’s whole shtick going forward was that there was room for multiple takes on the same characters? Hence we not only have Keaton and Affleck in The Flash movie but we have R-Batz in The Batman (plus The Joker from 2019).

    Whedon should never work again. This and the Buffy revelations should have him nowhere near a movie or TV set ever again.

    Wheadon joins the ranks of people like Woody Allen. Male artists who make a career creating strong and layered female characters, but who are mysoginists at heart.
