Shit just got real.
Mrcool210 - 6/16/2014, 9:15 AM
i hope it is true, but i think that one of the smaller movies is probably a batman movie, Affleck can't be batman for a super long time so they got to get him into a solo movie asap

I used to date this girl who looked a lot like ScarJo. We were pretty serious too. I saw her over the weekend.

Don't do meth kids.
Pasto - 6/16/2014, 9:17 AM
Thanks for the advice Yoss. Words of wisdom.

Pasties, your avatar..

Who's ass is that in the picture? It's a nice ass. Keep that one, man. I think more people should appreciate the hindquarters on that one.
cipher - 6/16/2014, 9:18 AM
^^^ That's my new thing. Since Pasties changes avatars every 30 seconds, I'm going to say shit like that and hope that when somebody reads it they'll automatically assume that they've just missed a really good one and get a serious case of blue balls and beg him to change it back so they can see it again ^^^
Pasto - 6/16/2014, 9:19 AM
Lmao Ciph, thats clever as fudge.
TheDarkLord - 6/16/2014, 9:21 AM
Yes!!!!!! I just shit myself!!!
Phronesis - 6/16/2014, 9:21 AM
Again, I'm cautiously excited. Execution is key.
CameronGray - 6/16/2014, 9:23 AM
Good work today Dev! This may seem weird but I don't see them doing a Batman film with Affleck for a while. It seems WB are developing other heroes and after TDK trilogy, I don't see a Batman film coming out for the next 5/6 years.
batman001 - 6/16/2014, 9:25 AM
kevin smith is the man to go to for all dc news it's official lol
yossarian - 6/16/2014, 9:26 AM
I'm serious Pasto. It was sad really. She looked like she was a Detroit public school lunch lady.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 6/16/2014, 9:27 AM
This really bums me out how we got this news. Now people won't be freaking out at CC when it's announced because everyone will already know.
case - 6/16/2014, 9:33 AM
The hell..? Kevin Smith may be full of hot air, but I don't reckon he makes shit up to sound good.

This makes me happy. Can't wait for ComicCon.
DaVinci31 - 6/16/2014, 9:38 AM

I'll believe it when I see it.
batcheeks8 - 6/16/2014, 9:40 AM
Can it just be SDCC already???
FirstAvenger - 6/16/2014, 9:42 AM
Well that's awesome!
DaVinci31 - 6/16/2014, 9:46 AM

Just one more month.
Azbat - 6/16/2014, 9:47 AM
I'd say this news is..... Super.
BlackIceJoe - 6/16/2014, 9:47 AM
I so hope Shazam will be in the same universe with the rest of the DCCU. Because I want to see a fight between Superman and Captain Marvel.

Jollem - 6/16/2014, 9:48 AM
this means aquaman will appear. good. good
shabat - 6/16/2014, 9:49 AM
Oh [frick] yeah.
Gusto - 6/16/2014, 9:50 AM
I used to date a girl who looked like
Moe from the Three Stooges.
Do all the meth you want, kids!
WinterSoldier33 - 6/16/2014, 9:51 AM
Batman under the red hood in 2018

Make it happen WB
KallarkKent - 6/16/2014, 9:52 AM
I think this confirms Nikki Finke ruined WB/DC's surprise for fans at comic con. It will be nice to hear an official confirmation but when they announce it won't have the same impact.
Steelers4190 - 6/16/2014, 9:52 AM

Yes............................the epicness lol

Man Of Steel 2. That's the only thing I care about this. Zack Snyder better not direct it.
ProfessorRick - 6/16/2014, 9:59 AM

Ranger14 - 6/16/2014, 9:59 AM
Well, if the rumored news is true, that means we wait until 2018 for MOS2, which does not please me in the least.
CherryBomb - 6/16/2014, 10:02 AM
Why would Kevin Smith know? just curious, if anyone can inform me then thanks!

This list is very ambition, I'm kinda not so hyped about the GL/Flash team-up, I'd rather a Cyborg or Aquaman movie be there instead.

But so excited for Wonder Woman!
Klone - 6/16/2014, 10:03 AM
Well [frick].

As long as they don't [frick] up like the first film, all should be decent.
DylanTBest - 6/16/2014, 10:05 AM
I wonder when they'll get to work on Shazam, considering its going to be released about 2 months after MoS. Hopefully to make up for taking away the hype, they announce some casting.

As much as I hope Dwayne The Boulder Johnson is Black Adam, I'm guessing Warner Bros. want him to stick around so they made him Shazam.
Datahloks - 6/16/2014, 10:05 AM
Oh lord i hope its true.
dio - 6/16/2014, 10:06 AM
Cavill vs. The Rock as Black Adam? yes please.
Ranger14 - 6/16/2014, 10:07 AM
"I don't understand all these complaints over no MoS sequel until 2018"

For those of us who were disappointed in Superman's persona in MOS, yes, I would rather see an MOS2 sooner, so they can get his character better and develop it more before he is in a bunch of team up films, but that is my opinion and perspective.
DylanTBest - 6/16/2014, 10:07 AM
Hes close friends with Snyder & Affleck, and knows a lot about Batman V. Superman, I think hes a pretty reliable source.
Philvis - 6/16/2014, 10:08 AM
The more I hear information about the DC line-up, the less I like the title, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Just call it World's Finest.
