    Wonder Woman

    It was quite good. Hopefully this is the beginning of the DCEU changing its fortunes.

    Heavy Lance Charge on Horseback

    Agreed. A knight who regularly practices lance charges from horseback would likely develop one of the Martial Maneuvers to use it with purely for efficiency sake.

    Creating an "Unbreakable" Magical Weapon

    Domt use real weapon. Add Difficult to Dispel.

    Powers that add to existing damage.

    OAF works. You dont need the damage shield. Its just a lot of people are stuck on the idea of damage shield being an elemental aura surrounding something so tend to use that to represent an elementally wreathed weapon. Its not necessary though.

    Heavy Lance Charge on Horseback

    Why is the damage bonus of a killing attack halved? That is a completely ineffective attack and not indicative to what the maneuver would actually do to a target in the source material. That needs to be fixed!

    Justice League

    I am interested to see what this will be like without David Goyer scripting and with Geoff Johns as producer.

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    I thought it was an experimental Russian pilots suit meant to be able to handle high g-force maneuvers and tough enough not to shred due to friction.

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    Ant Man is not a side character. He is supposed to be a core member of The Avengers. I would add Wasp to that as well. The Guardians of the Galaxy didnt come in till Phase 2. In Phase 2 they needed to jntroduce the wider Marvel Universe that exists beyond the earth and the GotG was an absolutely brilliant way of doing that. When it comes to DC, Green Lantern should be that vehicle. And Marvel is still not focusing on side characters aside from the GotG. Black Panther, Dr Strange and Capt Marvel are all core characters. They could do the Inhumans because Blackbolt becomes a major mover and shaker in the Marvel Universe (esp if they plan to introduce The Illuminati). They could do Namor as well. What Marvel is not doing is wasting time on doing a movie about The Wrecking Crew, or giving Elektra a stand alone film. They had set up the wider marvel univers within the galaxy. At the point where GotG came out (phase 2) the situation on earth had been pretty well established. Thus GotG informed audiences of the political situation in space and showed them exactly how powerful and how feared Thanos was. And it also gave us the necessary back story on the Infinity Gems, so now we can namr them within the other films without needing that exposition. Guardians handled that. It was time. They dont have to do that with the movies. They have 40+ years of history with most of these books. All they have to do is figure out what version of the characters they want to go with, which stories they want to tell and put it together so it all makes sense. When they started the movie franchise, the first few films might have been trial and error seeing what resonated with audiences. But they are well beyond that now and reaching deep into long established Marvel lore to advance the franchise itself. Likely somewhere in the middle of those extremes. We spend as many years as we need to. We need to establish the rules first. Make introductions. Let the audience become familiar with and get comfortable with the characters. Then you destroy their world and change everything. It will resonate with audiences a whole lot more that way. Just look at the box office of the Marvel franchise. They are quite obviously doing something right. I would have preferred that Antman been a founding member. And I would have liked to have seen Ultron introduced in an Avengers film and be helpful to the Avengers first, then betray them. It would have had much more impact then. Speaking of Vision. The fact that Jarvis became Vision was awesome. Jarvis was introduced in the original Iron Man and had been in every movie that featured him. Audiences knew and were comfortable with Jarvis. So when Vision spoke with Jarvis voice, the average movie goer feels as if they already know the character. There suddenly isnt this new character that needs history and background in a team movie where there is very little time to do that. I am acknowledging this approach. I would say this for any studio attempting a long running and wide reaching movie or tv franchise. Not just for comic book movies.

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    I dont for a second buy Whedon just putting Thanos in the end of the film as a bonus for the fans. Why? Because the Emmissary spoke to Loki in the middle of the film mentioning "The one who put the scepter in your hands" meaning Thanos. Why would that line be in the film if Thanos was just an easter egg. It was a part of the plan, thats why. Whedon is full of crap.

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    Hey, I'm just giving my opinion on what I think they need to do to get the feel right. Whether or not they actually even attempt the relationship dynamic is conpletely up in the air. (Personally I would love to see a creepy love triangle between Batman, Batgirl and Nightwing to show just how effed up their dynamic is, but I dont think they would go that far).

    Not for comic nerds. They know the situation. For general movie going audiences and especially kids growing up who arent so familiar with these characters yet. We need to establish Batman as the "dad" of the Bat family. Dick Greyson as the big brother and Batgirl as the sister, then the other Robins if they decide to include them. The bat family is so intricately woven together, the way in which you introduce them is of the utmost importance in establishing their extremely complex relationships.

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    As I said earlier, they dont need multiple batman movies before doing some spin offs, but they need at least one and to introduce Batgirl in that movie. I feel that Suicide Squad would have been a lot more effective with audiences if we had seen Harley get taken down by Batman and locked up at the end of the first Batfilm with Joker vowing to break her out, with Suicide Squad building on that beginning. If Amanda Walher had been introduced as opposition to the concept of the Justice League within the Military Industrial Complex before showing audiences her big plan to use villains to do the governments dirty work. DC is missing so many great opportunities here by rushing, frankly is sad and dishearening to watch.

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    I agree with that sentiment. X-men did it organically, even if they made a few missteps along the way. However with the DCEU, they are not doing it organically. They are forcing it big time. They dont wait to see how audiences react to the current movie to build on the natural ebb and flow of these things. They are rushing out their productions because they see their direct competition doing it, not taking into consideration the foundation their competition built over a decade and 5 films leading up to their team movie. Honestly though, I have less of a problem that they are jumping right into their team movie and more of a problem that they are talking about (and filming) secondary character projects before even establishing their primary core characters. Suicide squad was too early. And a Batgirl movie would be too early. They've barely talked about a Green Lantern movie and there's no sign of Martian Manhunter and yet they have already proposed Gotham City Sirens? Yeah, its obvious DC has no idea what the hell they want to do. No plan. And no genius visionary guiding them. All they know is that they want some of those superhero billions! Hurry up and put the movies out!
