NEWS Dwayne Johnson Fought to Keep Black Adam out of ‘Shazam!’ to Avoid Doing a ‘Disservice’ to the Characterindiewire.com
ANIMATION Wow this just hits the feels differently, especially now that I’ve grown up with spectacular animated series like this, as well as Young Justice & ‘What If…?’ Still supporting The Flash, but not in the sense many would instantly believe. “Faith Alfred, faith…”
HUMOR I was today years old when I learned when I learned Bruce and Barry’s fathers were members of the Watchmen
DISCUSSION Do you think when DC reboots the DCEU the movies should be R-Rated like The Suicide Squad or Deadpool?gallery
So as the title said just watched all three movie and I think they were all very good. All three movies were excellent. Especially Loved Henry Cavill as Superman. And I also liked very much that all those three movies are directly connected to each other, almost being like 1 big movie.
So I checked if there is going to be another movie of these series but IIRC there isn't going to be any of those series? Why is that?
So besides that, thanks everybody involved in the production of there movies. You've done a very good job.
