    • Here's the thing you have too remember: James Gunn is extremely good at pulling off the fake out. When we all saw the Guardians of the Galaxy's very first trailer, we thought it wouldn't be so good but it was, just ad you said. Hes not a cinematic messiah of any kind at all so don't take me wrong. I agree with 95% of what you've said here and typically your right about something like this. So I'm gonna reserve my criticism for after the movie comes out and bombs big time lmao.

    • Try actually watching the movie before you decide you dont like it. This is just a review of the trailer not the movie. This isnt a comedy. You clearly dont know the charcters and dont understand comic book movies yet shit all over it anyways before actually seeing it which I find really weird. I have a feeling that some people will just automatically hate hate hate anything DC puts out no matter what before it even gets released.

  • Saw the trailer and my reaction was like "WTF is this?" It looks bland and forgettable, I doult it will be a major sucess with such a bland trailer, its not exactly going to get butts in seats, I felt similar about Shazam, it just comes across as something that never should of been green lighted, its obvious no one at Wanner knows what to do with the DC characters, there is no plan, they clearly lack confidance in their people or they are hiring the cheepest and baddest writers around to write their scripts and hoping for masterpieces to be produced but all they keep producing is trash! The Snyder cut was a good, sure it might be extremely long but it was a good story in general, but my main beef with the DC EU is that Wanner have pretty much been in a blind panic since the first Avengers movie, instead of setting up the Justice League characters in solo films, they took the hop, skip and jump approch that resulted in them landing flat on their faces and just when they try and get back up and dust themselves off, they fall over, again and again! The reason Marvel suceeded was simply because they set out a road map prior and set up three primary characters before hand, well techinally four, but that up for debate and then united them with the surporting characters in one film, plus they also had some talanted actors whose names have become household names and forever linked to their respected characters, Wanner, they haven't been able to achive that with their actors because the movie they been in, haven't been that great and mostly forgettable.

God knows how much was spent on promoting her, hyping her, trying to sell her to little girls in particular only for it to fail miserably. She gets multiple attempts at the brass ring, including this reboot, and Cavill gets shafted. Who is she screwing? Inquiring minds wanna know.

Honestly dude, if you dont know who King Shark is then this movie just isnt for you. You are the type that shits on a movie before its even out. edit. wait a minute. 5:10 This is a review of the trailer not the movie. You havnt even seen it. How can you review a movie you have not even seen? You cant shit on something that you havnt seen.

  • WB killed the DCEU 5 years ago and they've been desperately trying to fix things with reboots, recasts, remakes, etc etc etc... And now they've brought in the cast and directors from the MCU... and it's still not worked. The only common factor with the DCEU movies, are the petty cash officers in WB's head office who think they can edit movies because they once saw a movie once. Edit: People seem to have forgotten... Man Of Steel was only made because WB was about to lose the franchise rights. The movie rights were going to revert back to Siegel and Shuster estates because WB hadn't made a Superman movie for a while. Their contract states they have to make movies every X amount of years or they'll be costing Siegel and Shuster an income. So now we've got the a hastily produced badly executed franchise... off the back of a hastily produced, badly executed movie.

  • The problem is Warner Brothers doesn't understand their own properties. Guardians of the Galaxy was a group of opportunistic thieves, assassins and smugglers thrown together due to a galactic mcguffin that could bring about the end of the world and thus, had to band together and fight for something greater than themselves. Sure there was humor, but not enough to undermine the seriousness of the stakes they found themselves in. Suicide Squad however is a group of thieves, assassins and murders who are thrown together for one simple reason, "if you don't, I push this button and blow your head up real good". There's a deep, psychological impact that can be explored here. What does it mean to be a puppet of the U.S. government, forced against your nature to be little more than a black ops wet team, just so the government can keep their hands clean while you bloody yours. How many of these characters ever bother to explore why they're evil or took the path in life they did. Killer Shark for instance, not like he could ever get a job looking like that, and how many heroes would trust him? This movie should not be a comedy, because you have a perfect example of cause and effect duality that you could explore. Deadshot is a master assassin, its the only thing he's good at, so that's what he does, it's the only way he can earn money to support his daughter, but his activities has put him in the crosshairs of every superhero, and the government sponsored Suicide Squad, so his actions have led to his becoming a tool of Waller, and no matter how many times he tries to get out of the situation, he's stuck right where he is. How would that effect him mentally? Emotionally? Psychologically? What about Harley? A once respected psychologist twisted by a psychotic criminal into his sidekick. Does she remember her days of respect and appreciation by her peers? Does she want to break free of the Joker's hold? There is just so much emotional and psychological depth you can explore with these characters. Joker was a study of insanity and it was an amazing movie, but what about a movie that explores mistakes and regret when your trapped in a never-ending cycle of violence that you've been integrated for so long that you don't remember how you got there, you only know that you're on a team where you're odds of survival are zero to none. How depressing is that? How frustrating is that? How terrifying is that? But no, let's just make a movie with a bunch of stupid puns that is a cheap rip off of Guardians of the Galaxy when this story and these characters can explore much deeper themes. Joker was great because it explored the descent of madness, Shazam was fun because it was a campy yet enjoyable movie about family and unity. Honestly, DC does better when they just tell their own stories and stop trying to copy Marvel. But what do I know? I'm just a fan
