Gotta disagree that MoS > WW. It had the potential to be of course, but felt they understood WW's character more from the offset than Synder did with Superman. They kinda missed the whole point of Superman before JL.

Most of the heroes in JL were surprisingly fun and enjoyable for me, compared to what I had expected anyway, with the only weak link being Flash, so I can entertain an Aquman movie at this point. /shrug

Half of WW was great while the other half was lackluster to say the least and it was miles better than anything else WB/DC has put out. So I guess they have a half a movie going for them.

If Aquaman is even close to the crap fest that he was in the JL, its going to fail too.

For me, Wonder Woman is still the best superhero film we've had since CW. I, personally, rate it above Thor3, Spidey and Panther, though Panther is the closest to it.

Up until the final fight, the film is brilliant, imo. Well written, acted, directed, edited and scored. The chemistry between Diana and Trevor is excellent, and I really bought their conflicts when they came up.

And that part with the trench is ****ing amazing.

Most of all, though? It's an excellent adaptation of Wonder Woman. It's not just a person in a costume playing Wonder Woman to me. I felt like I was watching the actual character, much as I do when watching RDJ or Evans in their roles.

I don't see Aquaman measuring up because right now, this Aquaman is an unknown quantity. It might be good, but it's already pretty different from the comics that I don't really feel like there's a way to judge whether it'll be a good movie or not. I hope it is, but I've long given up any hope of it being a good Aquaman movie.

I think AM is going to be at least decent given Wan's track record.

With the supporting cast and Wan himself, yeah, the movie should at the very least be competently made. Though, people would have said the same thing about Suicide Squad, so ymmv.

Hopefully it pans out and is solid enough.

Well that's the thing, isn't it. We won't know until the movie comes out just how much they were jamming their noses in.

James Wan confirmed that the trailer will be shown at SDCC (19-22 of July), and that it won't be restricted to just SDCC.

Also, pic of Manta:

Read regarding Manta that he'll be a secondary villain maybe they're saving him for the sequel who knows, The movie will concentrate more on Ocean Master.

I do hope it does well as I don’t want the dceu to crumble and be a series of one off joker solo films. I just hope they can get their shit together to I can trash their fans and their characters with the MCU.

I may be mistaken but didn't Infinity War wait to release their trailer?

Wonder Woman was damn near a carbon copy of The First Avenger. Yet people don't give TFA any credit. To me, Wonder Woman was a fine film, I would say it was even good. But it's definitely not a top tier Super Hero movie imo, especially with the awful third act. Also, the fact that they're bringing Steve back? His character died a heroic death (apparently not) and should have stayed dead. WW was definitely the best DC movie so far in this DCEU though, I'll give you that.

Didn't Steve Rogers "die" a heroic death? Or even Bucky?

Steve didn't die as anyone watching the movie with the slightest bit of knowledge knew that Captain America isn't going to die in his own film. Also it's his origin. He comes back. Bucky didn't die a heroic death...it was more tragic than anything. And so far you can make the case that he did kinda "Die" that day.

The point is though, the MCU always gets ripped for lack of deaths, but DC gets a pass? Nah. DC is just as bad if not WORSE. They "killed" Superman in his second film, not only wasting the great "Death of Superman" opportunity they had, but also now there are zero stakes for Supes going forward; at least for the next few films.

I'm just saying that Wonder Woman gets a pass for being a clone of TFA. It SHOULD have at least killed Steve for good to differentiate itself a little more; and it would have made the third act much better...but now....
