That's because the studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine.
Because of course.

I actually don't have a problem with a black Superman, but not him plz. Cast someone more like Idris Elba. There are a number of hotheaded, snarky heroes I could see Michael B. Jordan playing, but not Superman.

With the twenty or so DC movies that WB is already supposedly working on, I'm highly skeptical of a Supergirl movie happening any time soon. Much like with the Flash, the current TV show already covering all the classic material and doing a fine job of it makes a potential movie seem a little redundant. Interestingly enough, the one capeshitter whom I think is both well-suited to exist in separate continuities on film and television and could avoid audience confusion/burnout is Batman. He can be a gritty, vengeful brute, a charming, suave adventurer, a wholesome community figure, and so on. This is partially why Batman is the best capeshitter.

First image of our new Joker for the origin movie. Directed by Todd Phillips, who's made the Hangover films and a bunch of other trash, and co-written by the dude who wrote X-Men Origins: Wolverine. What a stellar dumpster fire.

I'm actually with Thork on this one. Maybe I just find it to be a nice palate cleanser from the dark and gritty bullshit DC's been trying to make stick, but Shazam looks like a fun flick even if it doesn't seem like something substantial and complex.

Yeah it’s why people lived Antman and Guardians of the Galaxy. A superhero flick can just be fun. The reason Dark Knight, Iron Man and Winter Soldier were exceptional is they were fun and substantial.
Technically the explanation for why the sun sets at higher altitudes is also "waves," and whatnot.

Yeah I think I’m more interested in Shazam based on the trailers...

But I have to watch it cause IW2.

I don't know about Shazam.  The super suit just screams cheesy, overly padded, fake muscle suit.

That is what I was getting at when I said it looked terrible. I was quickly countered by the "good clean fun" crew.

For the tone they're going for I think it works. Shazam should absolutely be a cheesy, overly padded, fake muscle movie.

In other nudes I'm not watching the Captain Marbles trailer because Marvel movies are mostly not terrible so why spoil it.

Thing is, cheesy movies like that are hard to pull off well and I don't know if DC is up to the challenge.

It's more of a teaser trailer, so it doesn't really give too much away (unless you're one of those uber nerds who over analyzes it frame by frame).

Any kind of movie is hard to pull off well, and DC isn't monolithic, it depends entirely on who's involved. The actors in the cast that I'm familiar with are capable, the director I have less faith in (directing Conjuring spin-offs is not a way into my good books) but who knows. DC is definitely lagging way behind Marvel right now, but I think it will be possible for them to ultimately overcome the tonal baggage of Zack Snyder's overly serious garbage fires. Whether or not they actually manage to do that is of course yet to be seen, the Batman solo movie will be the real test of that, I think.
