Justice League/DC movie thread

There will never be a satisfactory Live Action Lex Luthor. Simple as that.


#3744

I liked Spacey Luthor, just didn’t like the movie. My ideal Luthor would be Mark Strong tho


#3745

Rosenbaum was great as a younger Lex best friends with Clark but still obsessed with the mystery around him.
The thing I liked the most about Lex in Smallville is that until his last moments you want him to be good. Sadly it gets dumb with the clones and all but that’s Smallville. There’s also his scene with Clark in the last episode when he completely embraces his dark side, it was great.
Lex and Lois were the best part of the show imo


#3746

It got dumb with the clones because Rosenbaum left the show. He only came back for the finale itself.


#3747

Dwayne Johnson as lex. Yes please


#3748

Wtf? No. What the fuck is wrong with you


#3749

Lena on the CW TV Show…


#3750

Lionel Luthor was the :goat: tho


#3751

Spacey Luthor was like perfect casting but horrible Luthor character (silly 80s Luthor). He could have pulled the perfect Luthor given a proper script. I think a younger Michael C Hall could work as Luthor

What I hate about Lionel Luthor is he never existed in the comics.
There was no one like him in any continuity other than Smallville.

What happen is Lex killed his worthless drunk white trash parents when he was a kid by cutting the break lines to their car.
He collected the life insurance (that went into a trust fund and college fund). Lex earned some scholarships and grants (for additional funds), went to college, graduated, then sue the auto manufacturer of the car in question for selling a car with faulty breaks, use that as starting capital to launch his business. Which is all part of Lex’s plans when he was like 8 years old.

I did read the non authorized biography from the 80s/early 90s. I started reading Superman with Byrne’s MoS reboot. Always loved the portray of Luthor as a business man instead of a mad scientist as he was in the 60s. The Bizarro chapter is done particularly well there


#3754

They just need to somehow properly translate DCAU Lex (the best Lex) to the big screen


#3755

Best Lex Luthor right here

In the comics, new writers often bring good new things to the title’s mythology. Audiovisual adaptations can be seen just like that: new stories for the characters.


#3757

Thats like saying best Batman, superman, flash, joker etc. It goes without saying.


#3758

Aquaman beat Wonder Woman and BvS in worldwide gross. Who would have thought that an Aquaman movie would be DC’s biggest money maker?


#3759

Don’t care for aquaman. I’ll see it when it’s available to DL


#3760

That movie was actually too good for Aquaman. Such a fantastic treatment should have been reserved for those like Superman instead. Imagine if MoS had this level of effort and polish put into it.

If you went into this movie without any prior knowledge of DC comics or it’s characters, you’d think Aquaman must be DC’s most popular character with the way this movie pumped him up.


#3761

It did. It just happened to suck.


#3762

Man of Steel was absolutely amazing. I love that movie.
