Movie looks great, glad Marvel and DC get to share Gunn. I never would have guessed this would be the career path for the guy who wrote Tromeo & Juliet and made Slither.

I understand folks that aren't into the action-comedy tone a lot of comic movies have adopted, but I'm not sure I understand anyone who expected different from a James Gunn movie featuring Harley Quinn.

From a studio perspective, I can't really see Cena dying; he's charismatic and a big enough name to draw eyeballs, but enough of a B-lister that getting him back for future movies can't be that expensive.

Maybe he's not as big/expensive a draw as I'm thinking, but I cant imagine Idris Elba surviving to be paid for in future sequels.

My problem with this movie is I totally don't trust them to not just go back to the same tired story beats they've been pushing for like the last 4 Saw movies. Especially since it is the same writers as Jigsaw, which sucked.

I was going to say "hey, I liked Saw 3!", but then I googled and there's been five more movies since then, not counting SPIRAL.

I'm pretty sure every internet-aware person over the age of 14 has a negative view of the Paul's. They appeal to a very specific subset of kids planted in front of an iPod.

there are so many comic book writers i despise and they keep on giving them adapations. why can't they do stuff for the ones i like.

Comics make barely any money so the only writers with clout lucked into having a good adaptation (Kick-rear end, 300, The Boys/The version of The Punisher every adaptation uses) in a medium that makes money

Also I guess Alan Moore, who is genie cursed to get a hundred adaptations he doesnt like & are usually forgotten

I'm very pleased to have never seen one of these movies.

You're missing out on some the best action & stunts of the modern era IMO.

Jordan Blum wrote and produced on Community & American Dad, so there's that, and I'l always have a soft spot for stop motion. Nothing in that really made me laugh, but I'm in a pretty poo poo mood this week and that is a painfully stock trailer.

Vin Diesel is painfully earnest in a way that you just have to love. He's made a career out of playing his roleplay characters and bless him for it.

Why on earth would you cut a trailer that promises your movie is less cool than the thing its based on

Assuming you mean the bit about being less dark, I honestly think that's a novel approach, fewer movies/shows that have a more optimistic/fantastical view of the post-apocalypse, and it fits with a naive child being the main character and heart of the production.

I really liked Rock when he first emerged as an actor, was cool to see a wrestler that could successfully transition into movies and not be extremely wooden/awkward. He's pretty boring now though, I don't know if I'm just harboring residual disappointment from Hercules but I feel like he doesn't offer much you couldn't get from Vin Diesel or Bautista instead.

seems a bit like buying into the televised "behind the scenes" skits in professional wrestling.

Especially when we're talking about Literally A Wrestler vs RPG Man.

I know that I should not be saying this about a glorified toy commercial that Kevin Smith is involved in,

For what it's worth, early 2000's He-Man was a respectable show with a lot of talent from the DCAU, mainly got hosed by Mattel being notoriously incompetent at handling their own action figures. Also updated a lot of the worst designs.

Trailer looks great, I am a huge sucker for 80's themed projects that go for that aesthetic without being too ironic about it.
