Suicide Squad has potential, and Star Wars is obvious.  But the other 2... bleh. Never was into Heroes and Superman v. Batman looks god awful.

The first couple seasons of heroes was amazing.  I am hoping they focus on that and not the shitshow it became in the later seasons.  BvS has potential... but the previews dont really inspire confidence.

Everything looks amazing. Heroes should be much better since no writers strike this time.

I dunno man I'm actually really excited to see old fat Batman kick the living shit out of Superbitch. Sounds entertaining to me I just have no fuckin idea how they're gonna fit so much shit in one single movie...... Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Flash............................... huh ???

The comic the basic premise of the movie is based on The Dark Knight Returns which was a story about an old retired (~60 year old) Bruce Wayne coming out of retirement to clean up the crime that has crept back in since his retirement.  It featured a Batman in power armor going toe to toe with Superman over ideology.  It also had a bat tank which was pretty fucking cool.



Much like the graphic novel Batman: Arkham Asylum which was the basis for the Arkham video game series, I imagine the graphic novel will wind up being a LOT better than the movie, but I'm really only watching it for the effects.  Frankly, Unlike most people i never really fell in love with any of the new Batman franchise and the new Superman was kind of terrible too. So other than the new Flash TV show the new media DC universe has not really done much to engage me yet.

Also, if you havent yet, I would really recommend the arkham novel.  If nothing else, the art is phenominal:

I personally think the Nolan trilogy/Watchmen is the best comic related mainstream media in the last decade by far so I think DC has done semi-okay even though they are dwarfed by the massive dick Marvel is swinging currently
