Looks decent...but lacks...something.

Yeah, I was completely unimpressed.

The Joker didn't even laugh.

You do get a few laughs before they actually show Joker.

Also, you have to remember that the Joker isn't truly in the movie from most reports. He's cameo'ing and he's going to be present, but only during the prison scenes. He's not actually part of the Squad.

I did sort of pick up on that from the trailer... but then why was it such a big freaking deal all over social media with the casting and hair-cutting and the preview photos and crap? Stupid Facebook trending wall, misleading me into thinking things were actually relevant to other things.

The DC film universe is just really unimpressive so far.

Thankfully, I have the DC television universe.

I think it looks fairly decent. Not sure about the other stuff but Anne Hathaway as Harley and Catwoman sortve throws me off but that works, she's a great actress. Will Smith is a surprise.

I sortve wish there was more tradition in terms of "Hey, that's so and so.." I honestly didn't know this was a thing until now, the movie that is.

Arch:
Because the recasting of the Joker after Heath Ledger is a fairly big thing, considering how Heath ended up, and the iconic status of the character itself.

Ghost:
It's not Anne Hathaway. It's Margot Robbie, most recently from The Wolf of Wall Street and Focus (also with Will Smith). Margot Robbie
The movie was announced a while ago and has been in the works for some time. Comicbookmovie.com has always been reporting on it.

It looked like her in some of those views, then again I just woke up and saw this and on Facebook.

Interesting.

I heard rumor of it but thought again, it was rumor. I font really rely on the Internet rumors for that sortve thing. I mean if they said they were going to make a Supergirl movie, I'd remain highly skeptical until I saw a trailer.

Either way, she seems to fit the role and as I said, it looks good.

I can say I look forward to this.

Especially to see Harley and such.

Actually I heard a laugh.

Also isn't it based off more The New 52 versions? - Mirrodin

This has been more than "internet rumors" considering concept art, casting interviews, magazine interviews, and behind the scenes set pictures for quite some time.

Again, not something with events going on IRL that I followed religiously. Same could be said for EPVII.

So after rumor, I didn't follow it. Dismissed it just as much as I have with the recasting of James Bond.

Conflicting, perhaps considering my comics but my mind had been elsewhere.

In that case there's a supergirl TV show.

I have already seen the pilot episode for the Supergirl TV series a month or so back.

It was 'ok'. They need to work on the actresses fighting skills, as they seemed very weak. I'll watch the first season and see how it goes. But I don't have a lot of faith in CBS.

It will be interesting how they portray Hank Henshaw, and his subsequent inclusion as a villian with the Green Lantern Corps

Yeah I'll keep an eye out on it but I don't expect many seasons like Smallville

I suppose. But the Intarwebs keep referring to Leto as a "costar" and things like that. It's kinda weird.

Re: Supergirl, it's sort of in the same television universe as Arrow, the Flash, and (next year!) Legends of Tomorrow. (I'm mostly excited about Legends because I'm a huge Arthur Darvill fan. I've never seen him act badly.) Supergirl is being made by the same people (Berlanti, et al), they were just able to sell it to a bigger network than the CW (probably in no small part due to the success of the CW's DC programming). Gotham is not in the same universe, and honestly, I think it's tied with Arrow for the weakest link of DC's television programming. (Arrow may have started it all, but the latest season was haphazard, and the Season 3 finale could have been a series finale, and no one would have noticed. I'm not a big fan of that happening.)

I agree. I don't even know the characters that well. They just seem... well, I dunno, it just doesn't seem like it's going to be a very good movie. I like Will Smith, and as much as someone who doesn't read comic books can be, I'm a fan of the Suicide Squad, but this is just... meh.

I honestly think people will compare Leto and Ledger regardless of how well he might portray Joker.

I don't think you can compare two completely separate versions, if you will. Ledger's performance was well, legendary in essence but you have to sort've set it to the side and take a New-52 glance at this when it comes out.

I guess. Best way I can put it. It was inevitable that Joker would be re-casted.

Season 3 of Arrow sucked, huh?

Tell Squidward, because he LOVED Season 3. He wants more Olicity. He loves Emily Bett Rickards and thinks that Felicity Smoak is awesome.

Ain't that right, Squidward?
