Like everyone else I know Bill Maher from his tv commentaries. He comes across as a guy that likes to make noise. Says stuff for the shock value. Sure, there have been times when I have agreed with him but boy oh boy do I disagree with him now. Although he recently said that his initial attack on comic book culture was not a swipe at Stan Lee… Ummm, yes it was. I cannot believe the audacity of this man to try to take down the legacy of a man that just died by being so ignorant. Proof of his ignorance comes in the form of his claim that suggested comic book creator Stan Lee was partially responsible for Donald Trump becoming President.
Deep, deep mourning for a man who inspired millions to, I don’t know, watch a movie, I guess.
Bill Maher knows nothing about comic books and its culture and so should not be writing about it.
*good chance of spoilers*
I don’t even know where to begin. Honestly the people at DC need to pick up the phone and call the people at Marvel for some insight.
Unlike Marvel movies where I must go watch the weekend it comes out, I waited a few weeks before hitting up Justice League. Obviously it didn’t help that the reviews are not good. That however will never stop me.
Not one of the teasers leading up to the movie actually made it into the movie.
The scene with Bruce looking at a hologram of either Superman or Supergirl. Didn’t make it.
The scene with Alfred talking to someone and saying ‘You said you’d come. Now, let’s hope you’re not too late.’ Didn’t make it.
The green ‘dot’ underneath the plane… possibly a green lantern. Didn’t make it.
Superman in the black suit. Didn’t make it.
So much disappointment.
And let’s talk about Steppenwolf. What the hell. Just a terrible effort on the cgi. Really bad. Can someone please get the Marvel experts on the phone? Thanos*cough*cough*. And what about that bang up job they did with Superman’s cgi. His mouth area was creepy as fuck. Let’s not even go there.
Speaking of Superman. My God that whole coming back from the dead was soooo underwhelming!!! Wow. What a letdown. At the end of BvS you saw dirt lifting off his coffin… I had chills at that moment. So much more could have been done with that but yet again the ball was dropped.
Aquaman was badass and delivered. The Flash, not so much. I don’t really like where they went with this character. I think they wanted to simulate the Flash of the cartoon series and in my opinion it fell short.
Cyborg … ok.. Nothing spectacular. Wonder Woman 👍😀
I did find it interesting how Batman/Ben Affleck has created an out with some of the dialogue he had with Wonder Woman and her ‘being a leader’.
Anyway…. DC has a lot of work to do. I know there was soo much Hoopla over wonder woman and I too enjoyed it but it wasn’t anywhere near any of the Marvel movies.
