I don’t think they were the problems, I think the world built around them was the problem. I don’t know how you could continue their versions with so much weighing them down.Again, not sure if you could point to Cavill or Affleck being "problems" when -rightly or wrongly- the director and the studio production team seem to have been the focus of all the controversy. I doubt most average movie-goers thought Snyder's trilogy were exceptionally terrible, and I think it needs to be accepted that with the Snyder cut of JL being broadly considered to be a better movie than the Whedon-cut, Snyder's kinda come out of all this looking like the babyface!

The takeaway there is no HBO max only films with more than a 35 million dollar budget.LOL. I was joking when I said that. Who knew it'd get stretched thin to Wonder Twins!
Is this not true since it has now come out the screenings were absolute dogshit?Nah the test screenings were going well (Pheiffer is the Catwoman in the rebooted universe where Keaton is now Batman), and Brenden Fraser is Firefly in it. They kept the same Gordon from BVS/JL as well.
All those guys are from the old Marvel, who are the new ones? that random nobody from Shang Chi? who the hell is supposed to star in the new movies?Nobodies... Like Chris Hemsworth... ? Like... Mark Ruffalo? Like... Chris Pratt?
None of them were well known mainstream movie stars... Until AFTER their MCU movies
Yeah, they were working actors but they were barely stars... It could be argued Evans was barely a star... A known actor but he wasn't a leading man in anything well loved.

DC cinematic universe please stop, and only make tv series .. The Batman was so bad I fell asleep , hasn’t happened in 15 years when watching a movie , I didn’t even bother to finish the movie afterwards.
Fucking unbelievable. There's just no excuse for Warner Bros to have handled this property so poorly. The MCU managed to make Ant Man, Captain Marvel, Dr. Strange and the Guardians more relevant today than Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. How do you do that? WB was given the best comic book universe and the most recognizable superheroes on a platinum platter, and look what they did with it.
People seem to forget that Man of Steel was primarily written by David Goyer.
The same David Goyer who then said Martian Manhunter was too goofy to work in a movie.
Somehow I don't think I even heard they were making this movie. Then again, Batgirl is a trash character so I probably just ignored any news about it.
Blue Beetle right now
There were initial cries that the scrapping of Batgirl carried bad optics because the title role is played by a Latina. But there were reasons for the move. In both cases, the filmmakers were told that it came down to a “purchase accounting” maneuver available to Warner Bros Discovery because the company has changed hands, and also changed strategy from the previous regime. This opportunity expires in mid-August, said sources, and it allows WBD to not have to carry the losses on its books at a time when the studio is trying to pare down $3 billion in debt across its divisions.
Sources don’t expect other films to get killed like this, because the accounting opportunity expires by the middle of this month.
Blue Beetle was made for theaters and they're saying it's being spared for accounting reasons. Guess the bot army is going to need to review bomb it after all.
The Dish: What’s Behind The ‘Batgirl’ & ‘Scoob!’ Discard? David Zaslav’s Abject Rejection Of Jason Kilar’s HBO Max StrategyWhy did Warner Bros scrap Batgirl and Scoob! Holiday Haunt? The cancellation by Warner Bros of two made-for-HBO Max streaming movies came as a shock to the town. There are several threads here, but…deadline.com
As long as they keep it as part of my ATT cell service I do not care. I like the HBO perk.people are saying HBO Max is getting folded into Discovery+
They just dumped a bunch of their original programming off the service.
I really hope they don't kill it off. HBO Max has been pretty fantastic.
Apparently, David Zaslav has voiced a desire to work with JK Rowling on new Harry Potter content… which, as I’m sure you can imagine, adds a new dimension to some of the social media commentary about this cancellation.
So is Kevin Sorbo. It's just random actors. Nothing to look forward to. There is nobody I wanna see act in the entire Marvel universe right now, while earlier on, I was curious about how they would team up and stuff.The actress in she-hulk is a bit famous serial tv wise.
What? You pooped in the refrigerator? And you
ate the whole... wheel of cheesespent 90 million making a movie that's so bad you won't even stream it? How'd you do that? I'm not even mad, that's amazing.
