Go by yourself if you want, you're only going to see a movie.

 

Also, G, are you only friends with dudes?

I personally don't go on my own to the cinema. Anyway the movie is the best DCU movie so far I think. Don't get the hate. It was a fun popcorn flick. However yeah, Joker's hardly in it and some of the stuff didn't work and it really lost steam in the final third. Overall I'd probably give it a 7/10. Also the movie was rated a 15 here in the UK, which is the same what Deadpool got. This movie is no where near as violent or crude. Probably the most pathetic 15 rating given I've seen.

Where was that ever implied? They're the only ones that would go see obscure comic films. Chicks generally don't care for D list villains noones heard of from 30 years ago.

 

And getting someone to go with wasn't the issue? 😂 it was that the weekend is typically when you go with a date hence I waited til weekday.

 

On the topic of going to cinema alone. I done it once for Jurassic world cus I was in town wayy too early on a weekday and everyone was working so I went in and literally had the whole place to myself, apart from that 1 guy that eats 5 bags of candy and makes so much noise that you wanna punch their fat neck. There's always 1.

I'm not trying to hound on you. I just think it's a weird mentality. Any place you go to socialise on weekends could be considered places that people go on dates.

 

@Slashaholic; you don't consider bars for dates? I've one that before. More of a casual date.

 

Off topic I guess sorry haha

I'm with you ThreeG.

 

I waited two weeks to see Lights Out (which I am dying to see) to find a date brave enough to see it. I refused to go with my buds. Seeing it and Suicide Squad tonight at a Drive-In!

 

If it's a weeknight or Sunday afternoon, I don't care if it's just a dude and I.

Yeah, that's always been a thing over here. Weekdays with buds, weekends with chicks. I guess it isn't what everyone does around here but a bunch of dudes sitting together on a Saturday while everyone around you is with their girl is lame as **** 😂 no offence guys.

 

And damn a drive in? Scotland doesn't have such a thing. How vintage!

 

 

They're 80's themed. Super cool. There are like three or four in Toronto. Such a great place for dates.

I don't like it. The music is typically way too loud and dude's are savage here. If a guy on a date goes to the washroom or to buy drinks at the bar, he has to deal with all the guys trying to pick up the girl back at the table. Can't turn your head for one second at a club or a bar when you have a good-looking girl with you lmao.

 

As for the topic, I didn't mind Suicide Squad at all. It was your typical superhero movie. Had fun watching it.

I always thought Mongul was interesting in the animated series. But I don't know much about DC so I don't know if he's a big enough villain. I feel like Brainiac is the obvious guess

I feel like Brainiac might actually be too big. I feel like they could save him for the League if they really wanted to.

 

I don't know. They ruined Lex & Doomsday, Bizarro is too weird, Metallo & Parasite are too small-time. I feel like something interesting could be done with Cyborg Superman. Either him, or have him, Metallo, Parasite, etc. team up under Lex's orders or something.

Aquaman movie villain revealed

 

 

The King of Atlantis is going to have his hands full in his first solo DC Films movie. Aquaman, played by Jason Momoa, will square off against his arch-nemesis Black Manta in the upcoming Warner Bros. tentpole, currently slated for a 2018 release.
Black Manta was created in the pages of DC Comics’ Aquaman in 1967. The character has gone through several revamps in terms of origin and continuity. The most recent version, introduced as part of DC’s “New 52,” presents Black Manta as an assasin who holds a grudge for the death of his father against Aquaman. Aquaman did, in fact, accidentally murder Black Manta’s father while seeking retribution for a murder that Manta committed.
Momoa had a brief cameo as Aquaman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year. He’ll next appear in Justice League and can be seen in the footage from the film released at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2016.
For Aquaman, Momoa will be joined by Amber Heard as Arthur Curry’s Atlantean love, Mera. The film is being written by Will Beal (Gangster Squad) from a treatment by DC Comics Chief Creative Officer and President of DC Entertainment Geoff Johns. Johns himself wrote the first 25 issues of the New 52 Aquaman series. Aquaman will be directed by James Wan (Furious 7, The Conjuring).

Not sure how I felt about Leto's Joker. I've seen fan portrayals that I thought were more true to the character tbh

Not bashing you..

 

...but I don't get how that can be said based off a handful of short scenes. Nothing was out of character.

And there have been many, MANY different iterations of the Joker just in comics alone. So no one portrayal, in my opinion, can be "true to the character".

I guess I can't talk. I do love the New 52 Joker after all XD.

 

I've gotten into countless arguments with comic fans over that...ugh.

Saw BvS again, and while it wasn't as bad as I thought it was, it wasn't that good either. One thing I do appreciate is how they don't go for humor too much. Haven't seen Suicide Squad yet, but I hope they continue this with the other movies.

I think Warner Bros. is the problem with the DCEU. They saw the response The Dark Knight trology had, decided to transfer that approach to their new stuff, and were shook at the polarizing response Man of Steel had. It's been a problem for them ever since. Hearing all this stuff about edits, re-shoots for "more funnies" and rushed scripts shows a lack of faith in their people. That's a bad working environment for everyone, they need to leave them to it. That's how Fox messed up.

Interestingly, I heard Warner Bros. were bad for the original Batman series too. They wanted it campy, but Burton was against that, whereas Schumacher made it pretty campy according to what WB wanted, and we got a facepalm worthy movie in Batman and Robin. All because of WB. You'd think they know to leave anything Batman or DC alone by now....

Stoked. Wonder who's playing him, Manu Bennett is a tough guy to beat. Hopefully a gray headed guy this time.
