just watched aquaman this weekend... smdh.. I don't know how marvel manages to pull of the cheese and camp they do but somehow it works for them... DC's cheese and camp is just plain tragic tho... don't know why I even bother.. what was the last half decent dc offerring? I got nothing.

DC is known for either going the "Dark Knight" route with everything and then the cheesy route, but to me Aquaman was pretty decent without trying to be a corny Marvel Deadpool route which I thought Shazam was really corny but it felt more like made for Nickelodeon than a DC movie, even though DC has a lot of characters like this in their universe such as Plastic Man.
They just need to stop trying to make these long movies, it works for Marvel but for DC it's a negative (maybe cause of writing or non-interesting characters with no depth to them).
I heard there might be a Lobo movie coming in 2020/2021, even though he's kind of DC's Wolverine-ish character, I hope they don't try to copy what Marvel movies did.

...the action scenes. And aside from the stuff with Black Manta, the action scenes weren't that interesting. During the "final" battle, all I kept thinking about was "CRAB PEOPLE! CRAB PEOPLE!" a la South Park.

He has been/was hands down the best thing about the "current" DC universe.

We all know for the past 5 years that DC films had bad writrs, direction, etc. Their movies are still obviously making them a profit. The DC 'style' is well known and people know what to expect: Wal-Mart compard to Marvels 'Bareney's. Once in a while they'll have some quality Wonder Woman release but we all know the drill by now. Quit? They're on some Don't Stop-Won't Stop...and thats ok.

A. They didn't have a good unifier like Feige. I'm not saying you needed dude on his level, but Tsujihara was a disaster.
B. They could have just followed Marvel's formula and they would have been fine if they could have struck the right tone. They didn't have to try and reinvent the wheel with how they went about introducing their universe. Probably should have just cribbed from their animated stuff.
C. Snyder just wasn't the dude to kick things off. I enjoyed Man of Steel, but they should have had multiple talents behind the camera lined up. ______________________________________________________________________________

Aquaman was okay..but not one I will watch again. I actually enjoyed it more than Wonder Woman which I feel was completely overrated. I may try the sequel tho since its 1984, think the WW2 backdrop just didn't do it for me and the villain was shit.
Im looking forward to the Joker movie I think. The new Batman I'll give a chance. They just sucked at tying a universe together and seemed to give up on that now at least.

I'm just curious as to why would Will Smith take up a role knowing that it might end up being a reoccurring role but says he doesn't want to do sequels or play a role twice?
I just rather his ass just stick to not doing superhero movies at all, I was kind of surprised he did three Men In Black movies, then says "I'm done with doing roles more than once" schtick, I wonder who they will get to play Deadshot now?

connected universe in any way similar to the MCU. Currently announced films are pretty much silo'd and not connected to each other or leading up to any team-up films like Justice League. Which in theory is a great choice for DC - the individual directors can just focus on trying to make their own films as good as possible without trying to have it all fit together.
