Yeah, I'm on board for all of this as long as they don't do Death of Superman. AGAIN.
I don't see why they would, given that they already did it in the previous film series.
There is never a need for “more Danny Elfman” (among the several things I intensely disliked about the Whedon Justice League, the Elfman score was nearly the worst).
Then Batman '89 is clearly not for you.
Did I just read that someone said that Cavill's Superman did NOT have an impact??
I enjoy the movie despite its score. But I certainly don’t need to hear it elsewhere.
That's not the way his run on Action Comics ended though.
I think he's talking about All-Star Superman
I read it again. My apologies. You're correct, nowhere did you say he was adapting the story as you theorized on the movie adapting the ending.
He was, I was just suggesting since it wasn't Morrison's only Superman story there are other possible endings.
I did like t-shirt and jeans Superman from Morrison's Action run.
No one said he would be killed off in his first film. If the film warrants a sequel, who knows? Superman has been killed off more than once in the comics (usually to start some new chapter in super-related books or universe-wide), so he might be an "anchor" for a few films, then bow out, paving the way for Supergirl to be central super character. There are no guarantees.
Thank you. Discount Bernard Herrmann was grating and nearly topped the ,ist of things wrong with Burton's Bat-film.
You know . . . I actually tried to like the 1989 movie, "Batman". I really did. Everyone had praised it to the skies, and I tried so hard to like it. In the end, I realized that aside from a few moments in the film, I enjoyed the music videos connected to it a lot more. And I agree that using Danny Elfman's Batman theme was very unnecessary in "Justice League". I also found the use of John Williams' Superman theme even more unnecessary. The Star Wars Sequel Trilogy has made me realize how much I dislike the use of the nostalgic factor in pop culture movies and television.
IMO, it was fun hearing the Williams and Elfman Superman and Batman themes quoted in the theatrical Justice League.
As for Batman '89, I liked it, but I LOVED Batman Returns.
The Elfman theme was in the early scene with Batman and the parademon, and the Williams theme was in the scene where Superman fights the other JL members, am I correct?
I feel that Burton's Batman movies were pretty good Tim Burton movies, but not very good Batman stories. I just don't much care for their interpretation of Batman/Bruce, or of the Joker or Penguin. Or Alfred, or Commissioner Gordon.
Yes re: the Williams theme, but Elfman's Batman theme is in the scene where Bats, WW, and Flash meet with Gordon on the rooftop.
It's odd..... I have a deep love and admiration for Batman '89, but when I tried to watch it a couple of months ago I stopped halfway through.
I still love the Elfman theme though.
So, about that SHAZAM! name thing ...
