    They need Kevin Feige to take his talents to South Beach.

    In other news, I watched Batman v Superman for the first time (avoided it because DC sucks)..... and it wasn’t that bad after watching the new Wonder Woman.

    I’m excited for justice league now!

    so glad I didn’t watch all the DC movies right after watching the good marvel ones

    I'll be in the minority but I enjoyed it. That being said it suffers from sequel syndrome which has it making everything bigger while trying to keep it grounded.

    The first film had a good mix of personal moments and big sequences but I personally think the biggest issue is the dreamstone trope. It's never truly explained where it came from or who is really behind it, they talk about in passing but it feels like they needed a big reveal as to who is behind it all to tie it together.

    I think Jenkins was going for Donner's 2nd Superman, the basic plot is sort of similar but she didn't nail the execution. Gadot, Pine & Pascal were all solid and I thought Wiig was much better than expected. Hopefully they can close out the trilogy with a strong entry.

    Biggest problem with this movie was using a female director.

    DC is that abusive partner in the relationship, that we say we're gonna quit, but just can't find the moment to.

    The Batman trilogy + Joker + 1st wonderwoman + aquaman + first 100 minutes of Man of Steel can go up against any Marvel movie. But yeah, more quality overall from Marvel except for my boy Johnny Blaze.

    The re-watchability of those movies are non existent except for the first 2 batmans. Just because the first wonder woman was one of the better dc movies doesn't make it a good movie. Aquaman..? Lulz. Still haven't the desire to watch joker yet.

    This movie is BAD. I really thought people were exaggerating or just being trolls but they were not. It's terrible.

    I didn't turn it off but fell asleep...

    When I woke up I asked the wife if I missed anything and if I should rewind, and she says, "please don't."

    I am not a big superhero movie person but I can definitely say the Marvel list is better than the DC crap. Christopher Nolan's Batman Trilogy was the only one I really liked..
    • Man of Steel (2013)
    • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
    • Suicide Squad (2016)
    • Wonder Woman (2017)
    • Justice League (2017)
    • Aquaman (2018)
    • Shazam! (2019)
    • Birds of Prey (2020)
    • Wonder Woman 1984 (2020)
    DC movies yet to be released – in order
    • Justice League Snyder Cut (2021)
    • The Suicide Squad (2021)
    • Black Adam (2021)
    • The Flash (2022)
    • Shazam 2 (2022)
    • Aquaman 2 (2022)

    Here's the chronological viewing order of the Marvel movies:
    • Captain America: The First Avenger (takes place during WWII)
    • Captain Marvel (takes place in 1995)
    • Iron Man (takes place in 2010)
    • Iron Man 2 (takes place after Iron Man)
    • The Incredible Hulk (time unspecified, pre-Avengers)
    • Thor (takes place six months before Avengers)
    • The Avengers (takes place in 2012)
    • Iron Man 3 (takes place six months after The Avengers)
    • Thor: Dark World (post-Avengers, pre-Ultron)
    • Captain America: Winter Soldier (post-Avengers, pre-Ultron)
    • Guardians of the Galaxy (sometime in 2014)
    • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (after Guardians)
    • Avengers: Age of Ultron (takes place in 2015)
    • Ant-Man (takes place in 2015)
    • Captain America: Civil War (post-Ultron, pre-Infinity War)
    • Spider-Man: Homecoming (post-Civil War, pre-Infinity War)
    • Doctor Strange (takes place in 2016)
    • Black Panther (takes place in 2017)
    • Thor: Ragnarok (post-Ultron, pre-Infinity War)
    • Avengers: Infinity War (takes place in 2017)
    • Ant-Man and The Wasp (ambiguous, but fits nicely between IW and Endgame)
    • Avengers: Endgame (starts in 2017, finishes in 2022)
    • Spider-Man: Far From Home (post-Endgame)

    Joker was a good film in the same way The Master was a good movie -- great acting by Phoenix (and others) in an otherwise unpleasant experience.

    I find this all to be extremely realistic.

    WW84 was average at best. The 80's feel was great and for a minute I thought they would have Superman make an appearance but then i remembered that they rebooted superman so he didn't exist at this point. The thing DC doesn't do well is think about the existing universe and how to best fit the story in. Learning to fly and making things invisible were non-existent in WW in B vs S so why would they be a thing in 1984? Also, not every superhero story has to involve the end of the world, and Batman was not aware of this event when he came about? Last thing, they didn't even use her awesome theme music...
