The "Ultimate Avengers" movies were pretty good. So he was kinda there, but not as popular as he would later become.


I doubt the majority of the GA watched all those things, Only the comic book reader's.

^ Yeah he was pretty much an unknown to most people. As was Marvel's version of Thor.

Cap was fairly well known for being the leader of all the heroes, but audiences weren't really sure about is power set or origin story.

Hulk was the only really famous one.

It was, as far as movies went. Iron Man had no live action appearances before it and very few animated ones. People doubted Marvel Studios was going to succeed, what with all the X-Men characters and Spider Man contracted to other studios. The rest is cinematic history.

It's a surprise and it's not a surprise, this announcement. I wondered when Whedon was going to jump back into this kind of project; I was holding out hope Marvel Studios would bring him in for Captain Marvel in 2019.

And it continues DC & Warners longtime trend of bringing in talent that's had great success with a Marvel project to do theirs, because they can't figure out how to do it themselves. stick out tongue Both directors and actors. We'll see if this gets further than development before the usual director's carousal gets going (Who's directing The Flash again?...)

Also, I would prefer if this was Batwoman/Kathy Kane. That would be someone more distinct than someone who's a Bruce Wayne groupie.

Uhh, they are following Gail Simone's New52 origin/stories. laughing out loud

It's not like Whedon is starting from scratch. DC has a multitude worth of stories they can adapt on the big screen.

Hey, they had decades of history to draw on when he was signed for Wonder Woman all those years ago, but he was put off by their lack of enthusiasm for his ideas.

If DC & Warners could succeed as well with their movies as they do with their press releases, we would have had 2-3 times the number of DCEU movies out by now.

I'm not sure what his ideas was, but from WW fans themselves, they weren't very good. sad

So we are going to get a movie about a small girl beating up very large men and it will be more Soap Opera then Superhero Movie.

Yet they've had full confidence in Zack Snyder's vision instead erm

Anyway that's Marvel's gain and DC's loss for not having faith in Whedon. Now they want him after his massive Marvel contributions.

I like the character. At least we got to see a bit of him in the Legion cartoon.

Some things aren't meant to be made. Even George Miller stated that his Justice League movie shouldn't be made.

Yeah well a lot of people say the same about BvS. My own opinion of it has decreased over time.

But you're right. Marvel's Avengers was meant to happen first.

Been Rewatching CA1 and Thor1 tonight. Say what you will about the TDK trilogy, but you have to admire just how amazing Marvel built up its Connected Universe so naturally and organically, and then just completely knocked it out of the park with the first Avengers.

Most of those movies were below average, imo. They didn't age well.

Yeah, he's in the minority there. Don't think like Avengers has aged the best either, but to say they're below average is crazy.

So is this an April fools thing, or not? Not entertaining a Batgirl film till I know for sure. No Cassandra Cain is disappointing either way though.

Agree to disagree, but a crap load of their work has been mediocre. I've spoken to a lot of people who are burnt out on MCU movies, because they're so formulaic. This is even addressed in the Honest trailers, for crying out loud.

I would be looking forward to this but I'm not very confident in the DCEU. Joss directing is a very good move, though, so I definitely won't count it out.
