    Wonder Woman and The Flash... Finally!! Can't have a JL movie without theses movies out first. Sweet. And Aquaman. That's cool, too. Aquaman is like a C-list character in the JL, but that's cool they are thinking about a movie for him too. I wonder who will be WW... They need a good actress to pull it off. Her movie is waaay overdue. This is very good news.

    @CelluloidDreams you arent a fan of "Sherlock Holmes" but yet your avatar pic is of Rachel McAdams' character Irene Adler? Why is it that everything you have EVER said over the past 3 years has pissed me off? You never make sense and ONLY seem to like stupid films that no one cares about. This film was fantastic and cant POSSIBLY be categorized as anything outside of awesome. You dont have to be a fan of Holmes and the story I suppose, but it makes no sense when youre a fan of Troll 2 and Sarah Jessica Parker films.

    In Closing,

    I think I speak for everyone when I say
    PLEASE KILL YOURSELF

    At least it'll be hear earlier than anticipated. And hopefully they'll stick with another original idea that won't focus too heavily on the Moriarty subplot from the first film.
