@ObiWanShinobi "There has never been crossovers from superhero TV shows to movies". AoS did it at least 4 times in separate episodes in the first season with Samuel L. Jackson, Jaime Alexander, Maximiliano Hernandez, and Cobie Smulders. Even Star Trek did this to some degree but I wouldn't label them as superheroes.

And in my opinion (and many others), Brandon Routh sucked as Supes. Superman was very emotional and not charismatic. Speaking of, he's on Arrow as a different character. Two separate worlds (TV and film), but same actors playing different characters. Good Job, DC!!!

As long as they don't F*** up Batman, do what they want.
@Brizzy I understand the difference. I think logically, they should introduce the heroes that these characters play villain to first. They are a group of antiheroes, right? Before a character is an "antihero", they have to be a villain first. This movie just seems that they me skipping the villain aspect and going right into the antihero aspect. All of the members were locked up due to a crime they committed and were apprehended by their counterpart hero. Deadshot is a primary villain for Batman but the general audience would have no idea it was Bats that locked him up.
@ObiWanShinobi And when both were out, the talk at the watercooler was, "Why didn't they use the actor from Smallville as Superman? Brandon Routh sucked as Supes."

@Brizzy Have you been watching AoS lately. That show has definitely gotten better from a "ok" first half of their first season. Marvel is using their TV platform to fill in the gaps between the movies efficiently. And the fact that they are connected is not lazy at all. You have to consider all different aspects of which characters met already, what sides they are on, etc. It takes A LOT of foreplanning for a shared universe than otherwise.

I do agree it is a bigger risk cause if one sucked, the other may as well, but that's part of the hardwork to get it right. It has definitely benefited AoS. Seeing Samuel L. Jackson on a TV show?!?!? Amazing!!! For instance, Liam Neeson wanted to be on Green Arrow to continue as Ra's Al Ghul and they denied him cause they want to have a separate world. REALLY??? You stopped an acclaimed actor who has already set up that character and was highly respected from being on your show cause of separate worlds??? MAJOR LOST!!!

I really hope this Flash movie doesn't suck, BUT... if it does, they'll just write it off and say "well, at least our TV version is good". I rather not have multiple heroes, multiple stories, multiple villains of the same between TV and film.
HOLD UP!!!!! Independence Day WON'T be released Independence Day weekend??? WTF
Before I comment, let it be known that I am a major Marvel fan but my favorite superhero/comicbook is Batman, so I am NOT a DC hater. Now, I gotta be honest. It's GREAT to see DC stepping up to the plate (FINALLY) to build their bigger universe, but I am disappointed in many things that seem to be continuously overlooked.

1) Why the HELL would you want to separate your movie universe from the TV universe? The characters/actors of Green Arrow and The Flash TV show are not only established but respected. I would LOVE to see Stephen Amell share a scene with Ben Affleck or Henry Cavill. And admist all the great reviews The Flash is getting, why rehash the same character for a bigger screen. Give us fans a cohesive universe (alas Marvel) to invest in and be excited about. Multiple heroes only mean multiple villains and it will only be so long until DC/WB is competing with itself.

2) I hate 2-part movies. They never work. One usually sucks while the other is significantly better. Trying that concept out of the gate with the first Justice League is asking for trouble. And if you have three movies inbetween the two parts, does that elimante those characters from being in the film?

3) Why is Suicide Squad, a group of villains, being released before any other Justice League hero movie? Isn't that like releasing the Sinister Six before the first Amazing Spiderman movie?
I think the fact that WB/DC will have pretty much doubles of their heroes and villains is ludacris and not well thought out. To have Flash, Green Lantern, and other characters completely separate from their movie counterparts is weak and quite lazy if you ask me. You gotta admit that the way Marvel has created this one "media" universe where characters are shared between TV, film, one-shots and more is definitely more creative, cohesive and exciting.
Avengers 2 is obviously gonna have a MAJOR global disaster due to the likes of The Avengers facing Ultron. It only makes sense that Tony Stark would feel guilty for building Ultron and being the cause for such devastation that he would side with the government on the Superhero Registration Act in a Captain America 3 film that makes him face off with Caps. At the end, kill off Steve Rogers (presumably) as they did in the comics, which will ultimately lead to the disbanding of the Avengers.

Avengers 3 will feature Iron Man, the new Captain America (Bucky) and a new team of Avengers (Black Panther, Dr. Strange, etc... as rumored) to fight some major unknown villain (not Thanos).

Avengers 4 won't really be the sequel to the Avengers rather than a one-off 2-part titled "Secret Wars" film with random members from the new and old Avengers team, GotG, and others (Spidey, Daredevil, Luke Cage, etc) including new ones that lead to a faceoff with Thanos. BOOM!!!
My casting choice... Emma Stone, Laura Prepon, Anna Kendrick and Mindy Kaling.
If you really think about it, they did the same with Hawkeye and Black Widow and it seemed to work well. Even in some form, Thor was already established when we meet him in the movie. It just may work...
Simple question: Does anyone know who the villain for "Batman v Superman" is? I know Lex is in the movie, but it can't be him that Bats and Supes join forces against...
People keep suggest Chiwetel Ejiofor or Djimon Hounsou but I can't get behind it. Ejiofor does not look like the character at all and Hounsou is too old to play the character.
Haven't seen him act yet, but look-wise, Mike Colter (movieweb/news/3-new-halo-nightfall-photos-showcase-mike-colter-as-locke) definitely has the looks of the character. And we all know Marvel prefers to work with somewhat unknown or lowkey-popular actors initially. He's got my vote but I'll see how his acting is first. Anyone know of him???
Let's be real... he's a first-class villain that shouldn't be introduced until Season 2, perhaps even season 3 if possible.
So... the "cloud" is the villain of the movie, right?

This looks great.
So..... Superman and Batman are facing off against Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook? I'm not liking this at all...
So they won't call him Martian Manhunter "because that's goofy". ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?! That's direct source material. That's like having Wolverine in the X-Men movie and never mentioning the name "Wolverine"!!! wtf
On it!!!
Calling it... BIGGEST 2014 SUMMER FLOP
