So that Social Network dude is still playing Lex In the new movie? That was one of the worst casting mistakes ever!


[Luthor will] definitely be played by a different person ... I don't know the history as well as the people making the movie, so I guess it's up to them to figure out how much they want to separate it from previous incarnations.

There's no way to play the history of the character played by other people, unless you do some kind of wink, but that doesn't seem like a responsible way to act. (Jesse Eisenberg, 2014)


Jesse, the responsible way to do it is to have an actor be LEX LUTHOR - a strong, assertive, brilliant, evil-genius MAN, and not some scrawny, baby-faced, wimpy lunatic.  
Well, that shows how much Eisenberg was right about NOT portraying Lex again.
I didn’t like Superman Returns but Spacey did an adequate job as Lex.

I liked his performance. Spacey's Luthor was not very talkative, but very cruel and sinister.  His gang of thugs were effectively vicious.

Yeah. And I quite liked that scene with the thugs putting the beatdown on a kryptonite-suffering Superman.
Still, that movie lacked some drama among other things. It had a couple of good pieces but mostly it was bland and not too likeable.

I just watched Justice League. It's not good, but it's not bad. It's more entertaining then Batman v Superman, but still an absolute mess story wise. Marvel is simply in DC's head. [5/10]

If they make another Justice League film, with Darkseid as the Supervillain, you have to wonder why they even bothered to make this one.  Steppenwolf was one of the lamest supervillains I've ever seen.

The JL sequel will start filming after the solo Batman is completed. And that hasn’t started yet. AND they’ve gone back and forth about the script...there currently isn’t one yet...but there had been one...yet they’re supposed to start shooting next year. Cavill has one movie left on his contract though so there’s that.

DC movies have no vision. It’s as if they’re just reacting to what Marvel does. And poorly.

Steppenwolf was a generic threat with really bad CGI.

I like the actors. They really, really tried to make Justice League work. Plus some decent action sequences. Batman's intro was fantastic.

Which is really messed up because they had a $300 million budget to at least make it look good.

After reading so many bad reviews, I finally watched it last night, and didn´t think it was too bad...just not that memorable. Miles better than Batman vs Superman as others have been saying, and I had a feeling that DC knew more what they were doing here, as opposed to Suicide Squad, and to some extent, Wonder Woman. I think the majority of us WANT those movies to succeed, but they´re just not quite there yet. Maybe in the new Batman and in the Justice League sequel things will take a turn for the best...

I agree. But I found myself enjoying it much more than I thought I would. Perhaps because of the nostalgia of getting up early every Saturday morning when I was a kid to see this:

I liked TJL for what it's worth. It' no Avengers, but I'll take it. I'm disappointed there won't be a second one and they cut out all of Snyder's footage with Darkseid or anything intimating a sequel.

I thought the sequel is just put on the back burner for now due to disappointing box office numbers and the upcoming NON-Affleck Batman movie. But I don’t think there “won’t be a second one”. If they’re changing the direction of JL2 then they’re being smart.

As much as a Marvel fan I am, Superman & Batman are the most iconic superheroes in history. They need better treatment than what JL did to them.

Zan!

He was crap! His sister Jana would turn into an eagle, a gorilla, or some other somewhat strong animal but he’d change into a bucket of water!

What a useless wuss!

Even their space monkey Gleek had to carry Zan around in the bucket as he splashed around!

I could never get into DC back in the 70's. When I had all the Marvel comics I wanted for a particular month I would look through the DC stuff and literally laugh at how bad it was. And this was when I was just a little kid.

A lot of the 70s dc comics were crap I think too. That’s probably why there was a lot of revamping in the 80s. AND those 80s dc comics saw some great stuff too: Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, Batman: The Killing Joke, the John Byrne Superman run which made Supes less mild-mannered and slightly depowered (two bold moves), Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and Alan Moore’s run on Swamp Thing.

But as far as live action DC related flicks, they’re usually weak. Looking back over the last 40 years, the only ones I liked ((grade B or higher)) were the first two Reeves’ Supes movies, Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Watchmen, 300 ((THE perfect example of guilty pleasure popcorn movie)), Wonder Woman, and V for Vendetta. Given how many have failed ((me)), that’s few.

Where DC isn’t weak is in their animated films and shows. I just wished that carried over into more of their live action movies.

ALL CRAP ALL CAP!

Hoping the new VENOM movie is good.

There really is no hope with any of this comic book crook crap by Hollywood.

It's over.
