Teen Titans and Blue Beetle with the teen angst treatment? We've seen enough of that, I think.
I like a little angst.
Teen angst is what CW does. If you don't like it don't watch the channel.
Says the network executive. I hear ya, but I would also prefer my DC heroes not be a bunch of brooding, emotional 90210 wannabes.
Go watch The Twilight Saga.
No thanks. I watch TVD it is way better.
Yeah I would prefer my heroes to be the way they are in the comics, unfortunately that isn't always the case, and if you are going to have your shows on the CW you can expect a level of angst with them.
totally agree with you on that, they kept smallville with in the realms of comics these last few seasons. and especially with jsa movie which was fantastic and done really well. I watch only hand full of shows on cw and smallville was my all time favorite show. espcially after season 5. the only thing I would've like to have seen was a batman or a young bruce wyane but oh well.
Not sure of anyone here reads TWOP, or the recaps they do/did for Smallville but here's their recap for "Finale."
The name of the article: "So Long and Thanks for All of the Super!"
I know they tried a spinoff with Aquaman and they also considered one called The Graysons.
Let us not remember "The Graysons" please. *Shudders*
Hasn't that been a plot point for nearly every Batman movie, though, including The Dark Knight?
Remember when Batman cried like a little bitch in The Dark Knight?
"Sniff, Sniff. She was going to wait for me, Alfred."
Yeah, for about 2 minutes. Then he got his shit together and kicked some arse.
True, but it was the capstone scene from the rest of the movie that had Bruce angsting over Rachael.
And yet that final quarter of the film still contained a good 99.9% less angst than your average Smallville episode.
Nolan angst and CW angst are two different kinds of angst Broc. One is tolerable, the other is not
Besides, Batman's all about angst. His kind of angst, though, isn't about him moping in a barn over lost high-school love but about turning that angst into anger and action against the criminal element that causes his angst.
In The Dark Knight Bruce Wayne has just lost a life-long friend and a woman he loved deeply enough to give up a double-life for. Of course he's going to cry and be a bit pouty but then he takes that and unleashes himself onto The Joker and sacrifices his own hero's character for the sake of a greater good.
Superman, on the other hand, is supposed to be pure anti-angst, someone who has had it trained and built out of him to be a beacon of pure virtue and heroism. In Smallville, Clark/Superman still hasn't gotten over the girl who tried to marry his mortal enemy.
^ Yeah Smallville Clark needs to see a good psychologist. Perhaps...Hugo Strange?
Wasn't there a movie script for a proposed (one of many) Superman movie that had Supes go see a therapist?
^ There was indeed. I think it was one of the Salkind's film attempts to do Supes V. I can't remember though now.
Thanks for the perspective AY.
Imagine how much worse Smallville would have been with the Salkinds in charge. Yikes!
