Last week, hoping to finally put up a real fight against the hugely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, Warner Bros. announced an aggressive slate of upcoming comic book superhero movies based on its DC Comics properties. Which of these movies (if any) are you most anxious to see?
Honestly, despite currently enjoying both ‘Gotham’ and ‘The Flash’ on TV, I’m not terribly excited about any of these movies. (For the record, Warner and DC are treating their film and TV projects separately. The Batman and Flash movies will have no connection to the TV shows.) I find Marvel’s movies more interesting than DC’s, and quite frankly I’m getting burned out on superheroes in general.
Nevertheless, I’ll probably see some of these anyway. I’m curious to find out how well Ben Affleck takes over the Batman role. Will the Flash movie be as upbeat and fun as the TV version?
Can I resist the allure of team-up projects like ‘Batman v. Superman’ or ‘Justice League’? Probably not, even though I’m sure they’ll be underwhelming.
I don’t know what ‘Suicide Squad’ or ‘Cyborg’ are. I’ve never even heard of those comics. Then again, I didn’t know anything about ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ either and that movie turned out to be a blast.
Are you looking forward to any of these new superhero flicks?
