    Not really a fan of the Captain Marvel cape with a hood, but otherwise, it looks pretty good.

    Mark Millar Says DC Movies Aren’t Working Because The Characters Aren’t Cinematic

    “I think it’s really simple: the characters aren’t cinematic, and I say this as a massive DC fan who much prefers their characters to Marvel’s. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are some of my favorites, but I think these characters – with the exception of Batman – they aren’t based around their secret identity, they are based around their super power. Whereas the Marvel characters tend to be based around the personality of Matt Murdock or Peter Parker or the individual X-Men. It’s all about the character. DC, outside of Batman, is not about the character. With Batman, you can understand him and you can worry about him, but someone like Green Lantern, he has this ring that allows him to create 3D physical manifestations and green plasma with the thoughts in his head, but he’s allergic to the color yellow! How do you make a movie with that? In 1952 that made perfect sense, but now the audience have no idea what that’s all about.

    Zachary Levi is a good enough actor to pull this off. The suit is cheesy (as in Big Red), but it will look much better onscreen.

    What I really want is a Space Ghost movie.
    But I like "Hot Dog and a Shake." - marksound, 1988

    With all these set pics leaking, I don't understand why the studio isn't putting out something that shows the suit under some proper lighting.
    Captain Marvel is one of my favorite comic book characters. I hope this doesn't suck.

    I would love to be excited about DC bringing the New Gods to movie screens, but it's a DC movie, so I expect the worst.



    The 'Wrinkle in Time' filmmaker will take on the creation from iconic artist Jack Kirby for Warner Bros.
    Ava DuVernay has lined up her directorial follow-up to Disney's A Wrinkle in Time.

    The filmmaker will take on Warner Bros. and DC's The New Gods, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The property is a creation of the late and legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby, co-creator of Captain America, X-Men and other iconic heroes.

    The news comes a week after DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time earned $33 million at the box office in its opening weekend. With the movie, she became the first African-American woman to direct a film with a budget of more than $100 million. Prior to Wrinkle in Time, DuVernay first broke out as the helmer of the 2014 Martin Luther King Jr. feature Selma. She followed that up with the 2016 Oscar-nominated documentary 13th.

    With The New Gods, DuVernay will be stepping into a rich world, just as she did with Wrinkle in Time. In the comics, The New Gods is part of the so-called “Fourth World Saga,” a series of four interconnected comic book series written and drawn by Kirby when he arrived at DC from rival Marvel in the early 1970s. Mixing social commentary, mythology and science fiction, it sees a war between two alien planets — New Genesis and Apokolips — arrive on Earth when the ruler of the dystopian Apokolips, Darkseid, discovers that humanity holds the key to the Anti-Life Equation, which allows its user to control all living beings in existence.

    In addition to Kirby’s original titles, the Fourth World Saga has continued through a number of DC comic book series over the past four decades, as well as forming the basis for storylines in animated series and DC’s recent live-action movies; the villain Steppenwolf and the Mother Box from last year’s Justice League are both Kirby creations from the Fourth World Saga.

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/he...w-gods-1094878

    Who are the New Gods?

    Orion, Big Barda and Granny Goodness await your attention.
    If superhero stories, as many have argued, offer a contemporary mythology, then the Fourth World Saga at the center of New Gods, ups that ante considerably. The DC Entertainment property is getting its highest profile yet, with the news that director Ava DuVernay will be tackling a film adaptation of the project for Warner Bros.

    Since its creation in the early 1970s, when Jack Kirby abandoned the Marvel Universe to create something altogether new at competitors DC, the Fourth World Saga has endeavored to tell stories on a scope that make even the most cosmic of superhero epics seem unambitious by comparison. Not for nothing did the first issue of 1971’s New Gods open with the gloriously melodramatic narration, “There came a time when the old Gods died!”

    Told, initially, across four separate comic book series running in parallel — and then, in subsequent years, through even more revivals, guest shots and graphic novels — the Fourth World Saga is a sprawling storyline with a truly vast cast of characters that would take a long time to fully introduce. In order to get a quick handle on DuVernay’s film project, however, here is a brief primer on some of the primary players.

    Orion
    The main character of the original New Gods comic book — which was occasionally called Orion of the New Gods during its run — Orion was Luke Skywalker years before George Lucas was telling stories about a galaxy far, far away. The son of arch-villain Darkseid, Orion was raised by Darkseid’s opposite number, Highfather, on the utopian planet of New Genesis, and has struggled to maintain balance between his bestial nature and the love and nurturing he was given as a child. At heart a savage warrior, he possesses a nobility of spirit that allows him to aspire for more than just conquest and violence — which might be good, considering he is also destined to face his father in battle and may, eventually, take over rulership of his father's planet, Apokolips.

    Lightray
    Orion’s best friend, Lightray is free of the internal struggles that plague the son of Darkseid. Instead, he’s a strident optimist whose devil-may-care attitude can seem at odds with the situations in which he constantly finds himself. But that doesn’t mean that he won’t fight — not only by Orion’s side whenever necessary, but he also will battle Orion’s darker nature when his comrade seems too close to giving in to his worst impulses.

    Highfather

    The ruler of the planet New Genesis, Highfather is the patriarch of the New Gods as a whole and the adoptive father of Orion. “Highfather” is actually a title for Izaya the Inheritor, the opposite number of Darkseid — his wife’s murder at the hands of Darkseid was one of the inciting incidents that started the war between New Genesis and Apokolips. His own son, Scott, was raised by Darkseid as part of a pact intended to postpone war; Scott went on to become Mister Miracle, a “super escape artist” who ran away to Earth in a failed attempt to avoid the war altogether. More than any other character in the saga, Highfather relies upon the Source, a cosmic force that represents all life, for guidance; the Source literally communicates to Highfather via messages written in flame.

    Darkseid
    The villain of the piece, Darkseid — pronounced “Dark Side,” as if “The Source” wasn’t enough of a sign that George Lucas took some inspiration from the Fourth World comics — represents a kind of cosmic fascism that seeks, not to put too fine a point on it, the eradication of all independent thought in existence. As much the inspiration for Marvel’s Thanos as he was an inspiration for Darth Vader, Darkseid is more understated and a more accomplished manipulator than either, and perhaps best introduced via the monologue delivered by one of his followers in the 1997 JLA comic book storyline “Rock of Ages”: “Who is beyond good and evil? Who is the prophet of anti-life? Who is the rock and the chain and the lightning? All powerful! All unforgiving! All conquering! Who is your new God now and forever?” Darkseid is.

    Metron
    Metron is a strange character in Kirby’s original New Gods conception — technically an observer who doesn’t chose sides, he’s been demonstrated to assist both New Genesis and Apokolips at different points of his comic book career. If each of the primary New Gods characters represent higher themes — Orion, man’s dual nature and struggle to transcend animal instincts; Darkseid, the evil in humanity that seeks to dominate and ultimately eradicate independence, and so on — Metron represents dispassionate curiosity and, at times, the dangers of such pursuit. He is assisted in his quest for knowledge by the Mobius Chair, which allows him to travel through space and time, not to mention offering up deus ex machina plot resolutions when writers require them.

    Granny Goodness

    Darkseid is far from alone on Apokolips, with all manner of minions and related toadies willing to do his bidding, whether it’s the mad scientist DeSaad, the charming but untrustworthy Glorious Godfrey or his monstrous son Kalibak. Perhaps the most interesting, though, is Granny Goodness, who trains orphans to become soldiers in Darkseid’s many armies. Using techniques including brainwashing and torture, she’s responsible for the creation of all kinds of warriors for the cause, whether it’s the nameless Parademons and Dog Soldiers, or the more colorful Female Furies, a group of women with specific skills whose very lives are in service to Darkseid’s whims. A wonderful, surreal fact: Granny Goodness was modeled after comedian Phyllis Diller, according to those close to Kirby.

    Big Barda

    Barda — Ava DuVernay’s favorite superhero, she revealed on Twitter — was once the leader of the Female Furies, having been raised since childhood by Granny Goodness. She abandoned both Darkseid’s service and Apokolips as a whole after falling in love with Mister Miracle, and instead devoted herself to fighting the nihilism at the heart of her former cause alongside her love, and later, husband. In many ways Orion’s counterpart — she, too, struggles against inner darkness in an attempt to fight for optimism and a better way that isn’t inherently inside her — Barda’s love for Mister Miracle provides an emotional anchor to the vast mythology at the heart of the Fourth World Saga as a whole, and makes her one of the most well-rounded characters in the entire epic. If DuVernay decides to use her as the point-of-view character for the movie, she’ll have chosen well.

    They are intentionally comparing Aquaman to Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. Might be setting the bar a bit too high.

    Shazam, "a superhero version of Big”. That take on Captain Marvel is pretty much my worst fear of this movie.


    Warner Bros. unveiled rough footage from “Aquaman” at CinemaCon on Tuesday, with the cast and crew promising that the finished project will rival the sense of adventure and epic scope found in “Indiana Jones,” “Star Wars,” and “The Lord of the Rings.”

    The upcoming DC Comics adaptation will find the underwater lord battling his corrupt half-brother (Patrick Wilson, with a very blonde wig) after returning to the Kingdom of Atlantis. He is also tasked with trying to prevent a brewing conflict between the sea dwellers and the people on the “surface world.”

    Jason Momoa reprised his “Justice League” role as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, portraying the superhero as a man who “solves problems with his fists.”

    “I’m a blunt instrument and I’m damn good at it,” Momoa says at one point in the footage.


    The film will delve into Aquaman’s backstory. One of the more arresting images from the film finds a young Aquaman catching a trident with his bare hands.

    Director James Wan said the film’s effects are very much a work-in-progress, but told the crowd of theater owners that he hoped they could “catch a glimpse of something that may represent the fun film I’m going for.”

    'It: Chapter 2' Director Andy Muschietti Says 'Bring Your Adult Diapers'
    Momoa and Wan were joined on stage in Las Vegas, where the annual exhibition industry confab is taking place, by Amber Heard. The actress plays Mera, the queen of Atlantis, and, in Heard’s telling, a warrior in her own right.

    “She’s not a damsel in distress,” said Heard.

    “Aquaman” opens on Dec. 21. In addition to “Aquaman,” DC also teased its forthcoming adaptation of “Shazam!,” with director David F. Sandberg calling the film a superhero version of “Big” that will work for family audiences. In a video, “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins also teased the sequel to the superhero hit, revealing that it will be set in the 1980s.

    A lot is riding on these films. DC has struggled to create a cinematic universe to rival Marvel’s interconnected superhero films. “Justice League” was a financial disappointment, and “Suicide Squad” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” were excoriated by critics.
