>So, yes. More. When I first heard the story, albeit from a Marvel source, I thought it was ridiculous.

>That Marvel Comics were to cancel their Fantastic Four comics (though still using the characters in other titles) as a deliberate snub to Fox, currently producing the Fantastic Four movie. With the belief, from on high, that any publication of Fantastic Four comic books only helped Fox Studios at the expense of Marvel Studios. And while X-Men were just too popular comics to cancel, the Fantastic Four… wasn’t. So both comics would be dropped.

>There was flimsy evidence to back it up. That the Marvel 75th Anniversary project had no Fantastic Four on the cover, despite being Marvel’s first superhero team, and the core of the modern Marvel comic. I was told that Fantastic Four imagery had been taken down at Marvel’s offices. And then certain very chatty people in the past suddenly clammed up when this was mentioned.

>Well, this morning another shoe on the caterpillar dropped. An artist who I have been asked not to name, told me,

»”I do a number of sketch card projects for Upper Deck and Rittenhouse using Marvel characters. The most recent projects from both companies, one billed as Marvel 75th Anniversary, gave specific guidelines to NOT use any FF characters or supporting cast such as Dr Doom, Galactus, Surfer, Skrulls etc…”

>Dick regularly finds letters from Owlman stuffed under his door.
>Owlman shadows Dick while on missions and always beats up the big bad before Dick gets to him.
>Helena constantly has accidents that almost kill her.
>Owlman has gone full on Yandere and tries to murder Helena out of jealousy.
Stalker Owlman is the best Owlman.

“PATRICK.”
“NO.”
“I have a lot of opinions about Patricks. So much ego. But a heart of gold maybe?”
“Patrick is an accountant from the age of 10.”
“And like, loud.” 
“Oh god, Patrick is all around terrible. And there’s nothing a Patrick can do to be better. Pat, Patty, all bad.”
“Patrick follows the rules, and is kind of a douche.”
“And sanctimonious.”
“Patricks have a 4.0 GPA though.”

How far do they take the “Old Man Batman” concept? 
Is he actually going to mentor Superman and be his daddy and teach him how to shot laser (without killing everybody)?
Is Cyborg really in it?
Do they try to go all “realistic” on Wonder Woman and do that shitty “no superhero names” thing and just call her “Diana”?
What does Luthor do?
Is any of this true?

>Batman is older than Superman, and he does provide guidance for Superman, but they’re treated more as equals rather than teacher and student.

>Victor Stone is. It’s a minor role.

>They call her “Wonder Woman” twice. Lois names her. It’s actually a pretty fun scene. Otherwise she’s “Diana”.

>Luthor is the mastermind behind a plot to destroy Superman that ties with Darkseid.

>Yep.

Please give yourself a trip before other anons pretend to be you.
Who is the second villain beside Lex?
Describe where the world and the 5 key characters (Kal, Bruce, Lex, Diana, 2nd villain) where they begin the movie.
Please describe the relationship between Batman and Superman over the course of the movie.
Please describe Diana and Cyborg’s parts in the movie.
How would you describe the tone of the movie compared to MoS?
Is Superman given moments where he saves civilians?
How much does the movie refer back to the plot of MoS?
Does it feel like Terrio is trying to take the ship in a different direction?

>The second villain is Metallo.

>The world is still recovering from Zod’s invasion, and people are divided on whether to trust Superman. Clark is trying to bring hope to the people by helping, while at the same time investigating the Intergang as Clark Kent, reporter. Luthor is trying to expand his fortune and expose Superman for the threat Luthor perceives him to be. Batman has been protecting Gotham, and is investigating the activities of the Intergang, which leads him to Metropolis. Diana is searching for Superman and for a wayward Amazon that escaped into Men’s World. John Corben has been maimed in the battle between Superman and Zod and is easily swayed by Luthor to be used as a pawn.

>Superman and Batman begin at odds, as usual, and slowly gain respect for each other as they are forced to work together to stop Luthor.

>Diana is in Men’s World as an emissary of an impending threat, and a looming battle in which Superman will be a key-player. Victor Stone is just a supporting character, his father being a S.T.A.R. Labs scientist that interacts with Superman.

>Lighter, but still serious.

>Yes, plenty.

>Quite a bit. Zod’s invasion is mentioned several times, so is the destruction of Metropolis. Metallo is created from Zod’s armor scraps. Superman mentions Jonathan’s death as well. Basically, Superman is being driven by his need to honor his role as a hero in light of his failure to save all of Metropolis.

>Well, when I first talked with James [Gunn] here I had some read of the Bendis stuff. And I talked to James and I was like, “What do you think?” And he was said, “Don’t read any more. I don’t want you to read any.” [James said to read] the Abnett and Andy Lanning if I want, if I felt I had to read something, we’d be closest to that.

>Electro was pointless and stupid as Jim Carry in Batman Forever
>Norman has a disease that turns his skin green with claw nails, GEDDIT?
>the acting was over the top
>The cgi is ugly and looks unfinished 
>the romance is boring
>the humor is childish and goofy (not funny)
>Peter is a creepy stalker 
>the music was meh
>too much Slowmo 
>Rhino is a lie
>The time is all over the place
On the plus side, the costume was cool and they had the balls to kill off a big character (and it better than ASM). But The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was shit, bland shit. I hope when I go to buy tickets for ASM3, the movie is better than the last two.
