@ghostman @thedude1 @ObiWanShinobi I know I'm a little late to this party, but I figured I would throw my hat into the ring...

Wright wrote the first treatment in 2003. He was hired by Marvel in 2006. They had story issues from the beginning because they were building this Avengers universe and the original concept didn't fit. They went back into production in 2011, but agreed to wait until after Wright finished "At World's End". My point is that Wright and Marvel have been working on this film for almost a decade. Yes, they had "story issues" from the beginning, but Marvel agreed to work with Wright and Cornish. Marvel shouldn't have pushed a release date if it wasn't ready and if they had given Wright the green light for so many years, they should have let him make the movie he wanted to make. As reported, Wright and Cornish were consistently doing rewrites, and I think it was BS to just hand the script to other writers who just "homogenized" it. Yes, they want the movies to connect, but it seemed like a sh*tty move with Wright being cooperative for so many years. Plus, Wright has a completely unique style of filmmaking that would have been brilliant in the Marvel universe.

Way to stir that pot, @balanorange. I think this is nothing more than Whedon expressing some support for Wright and also sadness to see such a creative mind leave. Don't assume "trouble is brewing" at Marvel. That's just dumb. Also, check out James Gunn's response on Facebook to the whole situation. It may make it more clear for you...
@shuabert @ObiWanShinobi word on the street is that they wanted to tie the movie to Avengers 2 more and Edgar didn't want to budge after putting so much time into the script... I agree. It's a very sh*tty day.
@shuabert I think 'The Justice League Rises' is catchier.
Would have preferred "World's Finest" or even just "Dawn of Justice". I feel like every single piece of promotional material will have that logo so having the name "Batman and Superman" in the title seems redundant...just my personal opinion.
This guy is talking straight BS. Singer tweeted, "Before he was an Avenger, he was a mutant..." when he announced Quicksilver in this movie and then quickly deleted it. People don't forget.

As for Scarlet Witch, hopefully she doesn't look like another character from Scott Pilgrim.

Brilliant. Just take my money.
@thedude1 ah. so, you are mostly basing it off of other pictures? no worries. i was just confused because honestly these photos show nothing...
@themoviefanatic It's hard to answer your question without spoilers. In my opinion, they showed Godzilla enough because when they showed him, it counted. If they had him in the whole movie, there would be no story and you wouldn't care about any of the characters.

@brian No problem at all! Enjoy, man.

@therealGoku Honestly, I didn't mean any offense. You were the only one who had posted spoilers/information about the movie and I thought I would give my honest, contrasting opinion. I didn't think it was fair to give the movie a 5 out of 10 without giving a better explanation than "not enough Godzilla." It was almost a homage to the original Godzilla film and the story was great. Personally, I also hated that you posted a spoiler that actually made a lot of sense to the overall story.
@Brizzy the pictures are from 100 feet away...maybe it's just me, but it's not the right distance to determine body size. i can't even determine that it is her. it seems ridiculous to say that she "gained weight in her face..." i can't even see her face.
@themoviefanatic @thedude1 I saw the movie as well last night and I would tell you to completely ignore @therealGoku 's comments. No offense. Personally, I've never been a huge Godzilla fan, but I went in with an open mind and thoroughly enjoyed it. The middle is a little slow, but the beginning and the end are fantastic. Also, I think you should know that during the climax of the movie, the entire auditorium started clapping, which is something that I can't remember ever happening before so the movie definitely has epic moments.

And you definitely see Godzilla in full detail. He's not the ONLY focus, but he's definitely there and he looks great. I'm not trying to hype the movie up too much, but I don't want you to get discouraged to see it based on one user's opinion.
@thedude1 i'm really hoping that's sarcasm. Haha
@undeadslayer4 The trailer has been advertised for a while to appear before Godzilla. I didn't know that was spoiler information. My bad.
I saw Godzilla last night and was disappointed when this trailer did not play before it. Interstellar looks great, but it's hard to expect anything less from Nolan.

This needs to happen. Season 1 was amazing.
@therealGoku Agreed. It would be interesting to see the Power Rangers without being too campy. I have no idea if that's possible though...
Rinse and Repeat.

I wouldn't mind this casting at all. It would also make sense with all the previous rumors that he was up for Star Wars. Maybe he has been meeting with Disney consistently, but it's with Marvel and not Star Wars?
@jasonkat you're thinking of Michael Cera.

@superman81 grey and black is definitely a possibility, but I keep remembering Kevin Smith talking about the suit and saying it's "something that hasn't been done on film before", so i feel like there has to be some color in there somewhere...i think some dark, navy blue in the cowl or gloves...
