This is hard to talk about in spoiler text.

Of course, perhaps nobody today recalls the band. I wouldn't know, as I don't really pay much attention to the music world.
Me too, though I suspect both reference the real-life animal and the novel by Hesse.

How can you not know that one? Their # song is played in ballgames. They're referenced in Major League and Pulp Fiction.

I figured that out early on, he doesn't think things out enough to be sophisticated. He'll read a few lines of something, then dismiss it. Sign of a kid at home. I was unnecessarily mean to the boy though, and I regret that.

In any event, I'll have to check this out, even though I'm simply not a fan of Affleck in any sense. I simply don't expect too much.

I've heard "Born to be Wild", but I never knew who the artists were until this thread. I don't know much of anything about Rock Music or Artist.

But on the topic of JL Part 1, having Steppenwolf as the main villain is a good one (if the rumor is true), helps build of the threat of Darkseid. I just hope that they plan to have Granny Goodness, Kalibak, and the Furies as threats too

Well, "sophisticated" is probably not the right word for a pop rock song anyway, but I mean more like aware beyond his own limited sphere.

I imagine so. The only way they could skip them all is if he acted independently and I doubt that (especially with the Darkseid connection).

At least he doesn't say annoying shit like "buttfleck" every other post.

And you have the audacity to call some one unsofisticared.

Whether or not the rumor of the big baddie of Justice League: Part One is true really doesn't matter to me, considering how Batman v. Superman ended. There's going to be alot of ground to cover and I'm afraid it might come off as dense and disjointed as Dawn of Justice, which was anything but.

At any rate, my tickets are bought for this film. I've pretty much seen every comic book movie in a theater, with the only exception being Ghostrider: Spirit of Vengeance.

Kalibak would have been the better choice. Always liked when he and Superman traded punches...

Willem Dafoe Will Go Under The Sea In JUSTICE LEAGUE
Quote:
We know that Willem Dafoe is in Justice League, but that's about it. There's been a ton of speculation on the matter, so I checked in with my sources to see if they could offer any insight. They sort of, kind of did. What follows is like half a scoop.

According to my sources Willem Dafoe is playing an Atlantean. That's all I got for you. Start your speculation machines on which Atlantean he could be, although keep in mind that initial reports have him as a "good guy."

I do have some more insight into how they'll accomplish Atlantean stuff in Justice League (and, I assume, Aquaman, which went back to the drawing board in the last week or so with a complete page one rewrite). In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Aquaman's cameo was marred by the fact that Jason Momoa was very, very clearly holding his breath in a water tank. Like, his cheeks are all puffy as if he were chilling on the bottom of the pool at his parents' house. It's not a good look for an amphibuous hero. My sources tell me that rather than shoot in a water tank this time Zack Snyder has set up an elaborate rig on a green screen stage - it's a two armed rig, with Momoa clutched in one arm while the camera is clutched in the other. They two arms are preprogrammed to move in sync so that Momoa can do all kinds of maneuvers while the camera moves around him. I'm assuming there's a similar rig for more elaborate flying stuff. Momoa's hair will be CGIed into a flowy, underwater look.

That isn't the only greenscreen on the film. I'm being told that a majority of the movie will be shot on sets and Snyder will utilize background replacement, similar to his approach to 300. This offers him more control on the visuals of the film, but it also keeps the costumed characters away from prying cameras.

OK, it's in your court - is there a 'name' Atlantean you could see Dafoe playing? Speculate away.

If it's true, it's a head scratcher as to why WB/DC would cut the "communion" scene from Batman v. Superman.

+ YouTube Video

Vulko is the only one that came to my mind as well. Still, stellar actor in a pretty important role if he shows up in Aquaman as well. Hoping for Black Manta as the villain in that....

Aquaman going back to a complete page one rewrite though in the last week seems like much bigger news.

After news broke last week that WB was creating DC Films and putting Jon Berg and Geoff Johns in charge I know people were wondering what, if any, impact they'd have on JL, well apparently Berg is on set overseeing day-to-day production.

Justice League: Part One is going to be stuffed with all kinds of characters. However, it doesn't surprise me that Luthor will be back, as he's the one that has been communicating with (supposedly) Steppenwolf.

I wonder how many weird dreams Batman will have in Justice League.

Won't be surprised if any of those titles are true. Zack Snyder loved to throw the word "God" around in Batman v. Superman.

Too bad they couldn't subtitle "Justice League" with "New 52...But Not Even" to help the potentially estranged fans of J'onn and (as it appears now) Green Lantern.
