    Probably because a character he played had them.
    Leto likes to go full character.

    Imagine being on set with him for suicide squad. You would have to see him ruin one of the best characters ever made even when he isn't being filmed..

    I never understood all the mutual wankery about All-Star Superman. I saw the animated film and couldn't find any kind of point to it beyond being some kind of hollow epilogue to Superman's life. I read the original to find out if it had lost something in translation and it was even more plodding that the already plodding film.

    There was no real consistent theme. It seems to exist to bring a number of "plot threads" in Superman's life to some kind of happy-clappy conclusion for the benefit of the brigade that says Superman should be nothing more than a big blue boy scout.

    Peter Jackson has said he has 0 interest in making a comic book movie as he hasn't even read a comic.

    Bunch of Aquaman pics going about now which includes the main bad guy and Heard looking stunning.

    The 'unite the seven' tag line from years back was actually for the 7 under water kingdoms rather than JL members.

    That's the most interesting thing about the film so far. The type of amusing idea that kind of makes me want to watch it.

    It’s crazy to me how much of a mess DC is in.

    Aquaman, Wonder Woman 2 and Shazam are all currently in production which makes sense because Wonder Woman was very good, Aquaman has a lot of potential (mainly due to James Wan) and they want Shazam to be their “light-hearted/comedy” character.

    However, they have also apparently greenlit :

    - A Batman trilogy (with a new actor and no ties to the Affleck version of the character)
    - A Justice League sequel (with Affleck)
    - A Flash movie (which was Flashpoint, then wasn’t, but now maybe is again?)
    - Man of Steel 2 (Maybe, possibly)
    - Green Lantern Corps
    - TWO Joker movies (one with Leto, one with Joaquin Phoenix)
    - Suicide Squad 2
    - A Harley Quinn movie
    - A Justice League Dark Movie

    It’s an absolute shitstorm of a mess and it’s quite obvious that no one at DC or WB knows what the fuck is going on.

    I’d personally create a Joss Whedon/George Miller dream team to run everything but I’m assuming their going to keep behaving like a dog chasing its tail......which is a huge shame because there’s serious potential in the DC universe.

    I don't understand the need for 2 Joker films. Then again I don't understand the need for anymore Batman films after Nolan showed how it's done.

    It my not have been as much of a “mess” had Marvel not done it’s serialisation thing and had a clear, cohisive, well thought out vision...

    I think WB treat the DC brand no different from any of the other films they do. They just got to work on a number of different films and as soon as one is ready to go, it’ll go.

    To add to the list above, pretty sure Batgirl is moving forward. Why no Man of Steel 2? Maybe because it’ll probably be shit.

    I think they want to reboot but can’t as certain choices have been popular. Margot Robbie and Gal Gadot won’t be replaced anytime soon.

    I imagine stuff is going to get streamlined, or at least grouped into less confusing labels, quite fast now that Hamada has kicked people out.

    Aquaman trailer next month.

    It's funny Snyder is still talking about plans he had. The latest is him claiming the real Doomsday is still out there... so why use a troll version and still call it doomsday in BvS?

    It wouldn’t surprise me at all if they’re considering a reboot.....it’s not at all necessary though.

    Their casting is 95% spot on IMO and even where the casting has gone wrong (Leto, Eisenberg, etc) it’s not a lost cause.

    Jared Leto is capable of giving us a great Joker.....he just needs better writing, better direction and a better look. I’m in the camp of thinking that he was terrible in Suicide Squad, but the guy has got acting chops....he just needs better guidance.

    The same with Eisenberg, who I have seen be menacing and intimidating in other roles, so there’s no reason why he can’t bring that to Luthor.


    DC basically need to appoint their own version of Kevin Feige - someone to run the show from the top who picks the best directors and writers for the job. As I said in my previous post, they’ve already worked with George Miller and Joss Whedon on Justice League and I would basically just chuck cash at those two to run things from here on.

    Wonder Woman is (arguably) their best film so far and their combination of Patty Jenkins and Alan Heinberg worked really well, so they have to approach similar talent moving forward.

    James Wan for Aquaman is another solid choice and as long as they make similar decisions moving forward, there is no need for a reboot IMO.

    @Ultrasoundwave

    They had their Feige, or so they claimed, in Johns. And he fucked it.
    It's not as simple as just appointing a new man at the top. They've essentially had 1 decent film out of 5 and people are walling away from their stuff (directors from The Flash, and Affleck as Batman). If they don't reboot in some form they'll just end up with a really messy, inconstant universe. It's already happening dropping by dropping Snyder and its a shit show.

    And brighter. They're really trying to distance themselves from Snyder's muted palette.

    "And what did everyone love about him?"
    "That he was a chaotic force of nature whose origins and motives are never fully explained?
    "Correct! Now let's do the exact opposite of that!"

    No Marvel this year at SDCC.

    DC have the perfect opportunity to do something “right”.

    They’ll show the Aquaman trailer (confirmed).
    May have a teaser for Shazam
    Panel for Wonder Woman 78

    I’d like to see them do some kind of official announcements on
    Joker Origins
    Harley Quinn film
    Man of Steel 2 announcement maybe.

    Looking forward to seeing what they have to offer.

    It's a total giant random mess and I have no idea where they are going with these films. At this point they are just chucking shit at a wall and seeing what sticks. Even their best film (Wonder Woman) was bang average and bland.

    They are better off just completely ignoring the shitty universe they've created and just stick with individual films.

    Yeah the joker works much better being an unknown figure.

    The killing Joke is ok but not really enough to make in to a 2hr odd story.
    But if it's not using Leto and isn't part of the DCU then surely it will use a new Batman and Gordon as well?

    Happy for spin offs but this ones not needed.
