    Sorry what was that sonny, I don't read your kids funnybooks

    Now about this idea: how would we convey who was the Riddler to the average viewer? It's not like they know his name or anything

    In a funny coincidence, Kevin Smith and Paul Dini came up with an idea for a young Bruce Wayne show right around the time when Gotham was announced.

    I don't know about villains but "he" killed a hero. Well, his body did, his laser vision went off and killed someone when a villain messed about with his brain, I think. Depending on how sentient you think parademons are he's killed more.

    "adds" is normally a term I'd reserve for when something is still being cast, or at the latest, filmed

    Lauren Cohan has already been in the movie for months, she was in the first trailer (though we only saw the top half of her face)

    What if they go Flashpoint somewhere along the line? Terrible event, but I think they could make it interesting, with a better script.

    They're not going to do anything so interesting as that
    You're also not getting anything but garbage scripts as long as Goyer has anything to say about it

    I think somebody needs to remind DC that it took Marvel two flops and three years to finally create a cinematic universe.

    Right now it feels like they're fully focused on the "flop" phase.

    The only film they really had "flop" was Incredible Hulk and it was still a profitable film

    Hulk and...........Thor 1? I'm guessing? But like Blank said, they were still profitable at the end of the day

    I'd consider Iron Man 2 a flop along with Incredible Hulk.

    I mean, I liked it a bunch, and it made a bunch of money, but it seems firmly in the camp of Marvel movies people don't look back upon fondly.

    EDIT: And maybe Thor 1, but I've warmed up to it a bunch, and it seems to have aged better than IM2 and Hulk.

    Flashpoint Batman is literally this

    Thomas Wayne is Batman and Martha Wayne is Joker

    It is actually very good

    I mean critically, not financially.

    Though "flop" might not be the right word; mediocre/bad films might be a more accurate descriptor.

    The structure of their movie list

    Man of steel then bvs then suicide squad is a more experimental way to build a universe than iron Man, hulk, iron man 2

    Also; I'm calling it now, at some point DC will produce a film where it's revealed Thomas and Martha Wayne were not actually killed that night outside the opera house.

    And they'll be some kind of "clever" twist on an established DC villain(s).

    And then Batman will have to fight them.

    And it will be terrible.

    I mean, there's a bunch of potential in Suicide Squad. Will Smith in a major superhero release? Viola Davis as Waller? Harley? Sign me up.

    It's just that nobody at DC apparently recognizes what people like about any of those things, and they're just throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks.
