Hey everyone, thanks for joining me for my most anticipated DCEU list where I will list off my anticipation levels for each film. #1 will be my most anticipated one. Remember that this is my opinion and that I will rate these films by the information we got until August 18th, 2015.
10. The Flash
I don’t know about this one. I love the Flash and I think he is one of the coolest characters in pop culture, but the stinker here is Ezra Miller – the man who will portray the Scarlet Speedster. From what I have seen from him in the films was good, but he doesn’t fit the appearance of Barry nor Wally. I would have rather have a Flash that is less skinny, taller and with maybe blond hair. Yes maybe I am being too picky, but I just don’t see the right Flash being done here. I think he will do a great job, but not the right one. Speaking of Flash’s appearance in media, how come every time he is on live-action we see him always in his early 20s or even younger. Why couldn’t he be in his mid-30s like the rest of the League. He isn’t even a ‘kid’ in the comics. Anyway I want to see this movie, but probably not as much as the other ones.
I love Cyborg and I think he is a cool character, but we know nothing about this project other that it is a standalone Cyborg film. I also think Cyborg can’t carry his own movie, since he never even had his own comic book series until DC published one this year. Hopefully I will be wrong and who knows, maybe it will be one of the best superhero movies of all time. I really wanna see this movie in order to see how visually amazing this could be.
This would have been higher on this list since Aquaman is my 3rd favorite superhero of all time, but just judging by the Jason Momoa picture he didn’t really look like the traditional King of Atlantis and this could be a huge problem. I really like how badass he looked like, but it didn’t really wanna resemble the TRUE comic book hero. I don’t want Arthur to be a ruthless Conan the Barbarian-like character. Aquaman has actual feelings and from the picture so far I see nothing like that, but it’s just a picture so no one should judge much from it.
Shazam is one of the funniest, coolest characters out there and having the Rock as your villain is already setting up yourself for success. This should be the first or second (The Flash) more light hearted movie which it should be. I can’t wait to find out who will play Shazam and Billy Batson, but so far this feels more like a Black Adam movie than a Shazam one. I don’t like the fact that they are making Black Adam an anti-hero when he never was one. Just because he thinks he is doing the right thing, doesn’t mean that he is an anti-hero. Doctor Doom always thinks he is the hero, but that doesn’t really make him a hero nor an anti-hero. Some people just don’t know a difference between a hero, villain and an anti-hero which pisses me off.
6. Suicide Squad
If you have seen the first teaser trailer, then you should know how awesome this movie looks like! Harley Quinn is one of my favorite villains along with the coolest things in this trailer. The Joker looks interestingly different and the entire team looks awesome, but I have to say the only worry I have for the film is Deadshot and that he will play a hero more of a villain. This movie will be awesome!
5. Green Lantern Corps
I am super excited for this film especially that it will most likely take place in space along with more than just one human Green Lantern. Maybe this all isn’t confirmed but let’s face it, this will happen. I am hoping for characters like the Red Lanterns and Star Sapphires to show up, maybe along with the Sinestro Corps.
4. Wonder Woman
This is really surprising that it is so high on my list. I really want to see Wonder Woman to be done right because who doesn’t love her? She is strong, kind and inspirational. Although I am not certain in the casting of Gal Gadot playing the title role character, but I will give her a chance. I like the casting of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor as he really fits the role and I feel like he will bring a lot to the table. And let’s not forget this will be the very first TRUE female superhero film and let’s hope it is good.
3. Justice League Part One
This will be the first time we see the Justice League on the big screen, of coarse I’m excited! I am not crazy about the fact that this is split into 2 parts. I can’t wait to see Brainiac take on the Justice League, because I have a friend that is involved with this film and he told me that Brainiac will be in the movie and that one of the titles for the film is suggest to be “Justice League: Brainiac’s Saga”
2. Justice League Part 2
I imagine the first part to be a very nice introduction and expect the 2nd part to be this awesome conclusion to the two-parter. The score will be amazing and I believe Chris Terrio is returning along with Zack Snyder which gives me a lot of hope that this is in good hands, because I LOVED Man of Steel. This will be great and I love that the DC Universe will take a darker tone.
1. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
This movie looks so epic and it you just know that they will nail the introduction of the other heroes. Wonder Woman looks amazing, Superman looks awesome as always, but Batman is the biggest stand out! He looks like a boss and how badass can you be when you are a human fighting a God-like character!? Wonder Woman is super cool in this and we get to see her in action. This is my most anticipated thing of the year and I can’t wait for it!!!!
There is my list and hopefully you enjoyed it as much I did and remember that this is simply just my opinion and that I want to know your list in the comments below. Be nice and share on Facebook, Twitter or Google+ and have fun when you read even more things on Comic Booger!!!! See ya!
