My only complaint is release it sooner before Ezra does anything else crazy...

His handlers are either doing a great job of keeping him in check or locked up or bribing the press right now.  Not sure which.

Hopefully the silence means that he's getting the help that he needs. I highly doubt that Miller will be the next RDJ, but I'd rather see that happen than another crash and burn (which is what usually happens). I like some good schadenfreude every now and then, but don't feel the need for an endless supply.

Silence is merely calm before storm.

So...one week before Indiana Jones and three weeks before Mission Impossible?

I've asked before but what's the projected break-even on this movie?

Is it a flop at $650 million?

If it only does $700 million is it a success?

Think it is a moot point.  With WW3 being cancelled, and Gunn appearing to be making aggressive changes to the DCU, this movie looks like a dead end, except for serving as a hard reset point for the DCU.

 

So will this movie possibly being viewed as a dead end as far as sequels and connected films, does that impact Box Office, regardless of quality?

I think if it turns out this is a "dead end" movie then yes it does impact the box office.  I will be the first to admit it was unlikely I would have gone to see this movie in the theater because of the nutcase that is Ezra Miller.  However now with the fact that it looks as if the "Snyderverse" is dead (again these are just rumors at this point), there is no way I go to see this movie in a theater.  What is the point?  Unlikeable star plus a story that will not lead to anything else seems like a waste of money.

Warner Bros. Discovery is making a big splash and returning to the Super Bowl after a 17-year absence with a promo for “The Flash,” TheWrap has exclusively learned.

 

Super Bowl LVII will take place on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2023. The buzz on the film is so good that five days later, the superhero film will have it’s trailer pegged in front of Marvel Studios “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” which opens in theaters on Feb. 17, 2023.

 

The studio last appeared at the Super Bowl back in 2006 when promo spots for “16 Blocks,” “V for Vendetta” and “Poseidon” aired throughout the big game.

Is the DCU a reboot, or not? How is Miller "amenable", but not Cavill?

My guess is Miller has compromising photos of somebody.

It must be REALLY good for them to even consider moving on with Ezra.    

If it doesn't make enough money, because of all the backlash WBD has set themselves up for, how does the studio defend this? I suppose they'll just change their minds for the thirteenth-dozen time over the past few years...

Oh absolutely.   If it doesn't do exceptionally well, there is no way on earth he is coming back.  I believe if Shazam FOTG or Blue Beetle do well, we will be seeing them in the future too.

Recent news makes me wonder if James Gunn isn't DC's Trojan horse. He destroyed Suicide Squad 2 in my opinion, scraps the best of the DCEU, but they're still open to keeping the worst part of it for some reason!!! I'm seeing lots of red flags.

It really is causing a great divide before any real roadmap has been clearly announced.
