There's nothing wrong with making things for teen girls, stuff like Mean Girls and Booksmart is on a level of quality far higher than the CWverse

Both Mean Girls and Booksmart are better than 90% of CBMs

Grace Randolph already denied the click-bait Variety report:

 

 

 

She's courting the Snyder Cut hopefuls.  Once you realize she's one of those people who is so deep into Twitter that it skews all of her viewpoints many of her takes and "information" start to ... well, make more sense at least.   It trended so she'll see how many subs she can mine from that particular pocket of disaffected fans.

Well Leftovers had great reviews too, but it had awful ratings during its entire short run - and won 0 Emmy. You seemed confused about Warner's decision but the explanation is simple: Berlanti has made literally billions of dollars for them over the years.

Berlanti and his shows are the epitome of mediocrity (at best). Sure he's successful but it's not as if the standards are high, whether we're talking quality or ratings.

Like we can really take Josh Trank's opinion seriously, given you could leave a bunch of drunk teenage boys alone and they still wouldn't leave as much of a disaster in their wake as he reportedly did.

 

Yup, you're sooo cultured and above the rest of us aren't you Josh?

You know what all these MCU critics just don't get for the life of them? These movies are based on comic books! They aren't original films. People aren't necessarily looking for what they would in other original, more grounded and worldly films. There's a point to these superhero movies and that is that they are our beloved comic book characters and events coming to life! You think anyone gives a shit how nuanced and artistic these films are? No! None of us - even the MCU's most passionate fans - are comparing these films against The Godfather or something. These auteur directors are the only ones doing that.

That's a weird thing to say since Watchmen is based on a comic book and is doing more bold, interesting things than the MCU ever has

To move away the topic from Marvel and Scorsese for a bit, Is anyone else kind of impressed that Universal still has their Dark Universe trailer up for all to see? I kind of figured they would’ve preferred to just pretend that whole thing never happened.

Even though I’m not the biggest fan of the CW shows, Arrow does at least deserve credit for making live action superhero shows popular again.

Smallville can take the credit for that.

I'm pretty sure the Disney+ Marvel shows would still be green-lit if the Arrowverse never existed

Sure, and there's nothing wrong with that. Those are the showrunners' own creative choices. Good for them, and I mean that.

 

My point is that the reason the MCU is so big and popular is because their movies look like our beloved comics have been lifted right off the page and on to the big screen! It doesnt mean that comic book fans aren't also looking for something more mature and complex - look at Joker! - because they like a little of everything. It's just that Marvel movies are under no obligation to have that sort of slant or style. These critics forget or simply have no idea of their purpose when critiquing them. They dont give a shit about what they're based on and what audiences want to see. The movies just dont fit into their box of what they consider filmmaking so they must be shit.

Doesn't make it any less terrible 

They managed to do something that DC's films haven't been able to do in decades, which is make a likable version of Superman

Lol it's not even best shot MCU movie (that goes to the first two Thor movies and GOTG 2) unless forced shaky cam and murky brown filters is your sort of thing.

I'd agree that it is, yes.  But it's also operating in a relatively empty space left in the wake of one of the more iconic comic books runs.  It's a musing on what could have happened afterwards (and a damn good one at that).  The MCU is still running on a mishmash formula built on existing source material because there's just so much of it left untapped.
