All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

Ribbons Has the DC Scoops... (Phase Whatever)

I'm pretty sure we don't have a Random DC Movie thread, so I figured I might as well start one to catch all the non-Flash or -Aquaman related news. First bit of business: Ava DuVernay has been hired to direct a 'New Gods' movie (that's the one involving Darkseid and Mister Miracle and Videogame Cutscene Guy from Justice League).

i think one of the reasons why D.C. movies haven't been as successful is that the properties aren't as relatable as Marvel characters. i am far from the first to point that out. the D.C. characters are more iconic, symbolic, and that makes them less human, and harder for audiences to connect with them on screen in a 2 hour window. Marvel is all about the touchy feely "what is it to be human" and "what is right and wrong" existentialism, which is what elevates them above simple hero action movies and makes them more relatable to audiences, no matter how outlandish the settings or characters' outer appearance. that is my most humble opinion, anyway :D
