@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

He will definitely not be the worst Batman, or even the second or third worse Batman.

I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt and thinking he might be a good or very good Batman. I'm certainly more optimistic about this than Been Affleck as Batman.

Autocorrected Ben as Been. I'm leaving it.

I thought Affleck was terrific, but he was a poor choice to play the part on a long-term basis. They made a huge mistake when they decided to bank the future of the DCEU on an adaptation of Frank Miller's Batman.

No played is to strong a word he was on set he was in front of the camera but half the time I think it was just a cardboard cutout

Not surprising given he apparently loathed the role. At least the target audience dug his performance (which is more evidence of why they can't be trusted to influence the casting of this movie).

I'm willing to wait and see on this one. Might end up being the best Batman yet.

He's done films OTHER than the Twilight series. Shocking, I know.

People laughed when Michael Keaton was cast as Batman, and they were very, very wrong.

I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. He'll be better than Kilmer at the very least.

Ditto. Keaton is still my favourite live action Batman, and i did like Ben Affleck's performance, even with Snyder's uber dark killer attitude towards Bats. So i'll wait til i see Pattinson's performance.

The news of this also talks about this now being disconnected from the existing DCEU.

Because of course it is. With Batmanbee and the Joker standalone, the DCEU is in major need of an infinite crisis.

I almost wish they'd retcon Snyder's Watchmen as a prequel and make all of this into Dr. Manhattan fooling with the DC timeline just like he's doing in the comics right now...

As someone who wasn't completely repulsed by the Justice League film (there was promise in it, at least), I'm kind of disappointed to see all these things branching off from the DCEU rather than DC just putting in the work to fix the shared universe.

Them not wanting to put in the work to do a shared Universe "right" is at least a portion of why they failed to make it work in the first places

It could be another Keaton turn, but looking a his filmography and despite being in a good amount of films over the years the only ones I even recognize are his Twilight ones.That really doesn't bode super well to me. He may be an Indie film darling but really hasn't posted anything recognizable to the general public since.

Pattinson could very well be motivated to cleanse himself of the Twilight taint.
