Oh, is this the one that had the leaked picture of the character's shitty costumes and people were saying not to judge it because maybe in context their garbage clothes make sense?
To be fair, Starfire looks like she just got out of a ten year drinking binge.
Yeah, I'm conflicted. On the one hand I want to scoff at comic nerds who're upset that comic book characters (whose looks change 10 times a year anyway) had their appearance change when being portrayed in a completely different medium.
But on the other hand, they really did look like garbage.

I think I'll stick with Teen Titans Go!

Whoever makes decisions at DC must have grown up with the comics during their grim-dark 90s phase and thinks that is the height of entertainment no matter what his friends say.
It's like knowing an adult that still thinks linkin park is the best band ever.

The Dark Knight gets unfairly blamed for the grimdark superhero trend, when it itself wasn't so much grimdark as it was *relatively* grounded in reality. It still featured witty banter, visual gags, high-society soirees, a touch of romance, and, most importantly, unambiguously good people prevailing over unambiguously bad people. And this was the darkest chapter in that trilogy! The other two had microwave super-weapons and a climactic reenactment of Adam West's "some days you just can't get rid of a bomb!" scene.
If you want to blame one movie for poisoning the well, the absolutely joyless Watchmen came out the same year as the Dark Knight.
It's just Snyder all the way down, folks. He is to blame. He's the guy who tanked DC's movies.

Yeah, Ratner was selling lemonade squeezed from rotten lemons: smelly but avoidable. The caustic booze offered up by Snyder and Frank Miller, on the other hand, turned everyone at Warner Bros into a mean drunk overnight.
I thought Wonder Woman and Justice League turned a sharp corner against the dumbdark of Batman v Supersupes. Neither one was a homerun, but at least they didn't have Martha Kent being tortured while Jessie Eisenberg rants about the problem of evil, or the entire US Senate being killed by a suicide bomber, or Superman laser-frying Al Qaeda, or Batman machine-gunning robbers, or a woman drinking Lex Luthor's piss before being murdered, or... god, that was a rough movie.
Let’s not blame Miller. He made a grimdark movie from grimdark source material. Even Snyder can get some leeway for making a grimdark Batman from source material that can be grimdark at times.
DC is just retarded and thinks EVERYTHING can and should be grimdark because grimdark makes everything better.
Oh yeah, Snyder is responsible for how shitty these movies have gotten, but only because some WB execs are chasing the Nolan dragon and keep insisting against all evidence that every superhero franchise should be dark as fuck.
Notably, Snyder is not actually involved with this Titans show.

a lot of the blame can also be put on screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, and this article explains why, https://film.avclub.com/from-the-dark-tower-to-batman-robin-crappy -blockbust-1798264841

"Fuck Batman." Well that was part of your job description, wasn't it, Robin?

This is their attempt at selling you on a subscription-based streaming service (only $8 a month!). That's incredible.

You know why people like the Teen Titans cartoon? It's fun. This isn't fun.

I'm not big on Teen Titans anyway, but how hard is it to copy whatever it was Bruce Timm with all the DC properties he had to handle? Like... he did a good job... do that!
Or hell, even go the CW teen soap route, that had me for a few seasons, it's good popcorn TV.
What's with this angsty shit?
|poorwill - 2018-07-20 |
I love how this nerd shit always sparks more discussion than anything else posted on this site. 5 for the banality of evil.
(I am not excluding myself from that diss, I am as bad as anyone)

Jesus fuck. How will the next generation go "dark & gritty"?
They'll swing so hard in the opposite direction it makes Adam West's Batman look like The Dark Knight.
Yeah, they already did that in the animation department with Brave and the Bold and that one new Justice League Action cartoon (which I have yet to see but it looks innocent and sweet).
I would love to see some of that lightheartedness again in the movies. Fuck this.

Zack Snyder is personally responsible for the collective wasted time of millions of people pausing to turn up the brightness on their screens.
Also, that ending was one of the cheesiest things ever.

I never liked the cartoon or comics but this is one of the biggest downgrade reboots I've ever seen.
|betamaxed - 2018-07-21 |
Any batman or batman related characters that aren't played by Filipino actors isn't worth my time.
|Marlon Brawndo - 2018-07-22 |
Young Justice would have been such a better fit for this as a movie.
But seriously, fuck DC. I hope they get someone in their fucking franchise that eventually puts a stop to this dark misery fest of a movie franchise that sucks all joy from timeless characters. Not counting Wonder Woman because that director came through with flying colors but maaaaaan I'm sick of the dark shit.
