On TV, DC seems to dominate in terms of network shows. Arrow, the Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Gotham, and even somehow Lucifer have all gotten great reviews and have attracted many loyal fans that come back week after week. For some reason, they can't seem to strike the same chord with the films as of yet. Although I personally loved Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Suicide Squad I can see where they would have their critics. I have a strong feeling that is all going to change this year with Wonder Woman and Justice League.
Aquaman was recently given a release date, which tells us that the movie is moving forward with little to no speed bumps. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the upcoming Flash film. In the not too distant past the film has lost two directors, both fan favorite choices, Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa. While the star, Ezra Miller, has obviously stayed put, it does cause worry among the fan community. Many fans think, much like myself, why bother with a solo Flash film when the TV series is on the air and extremely successful?
- The Flash, while having a TV budget, has done incredible things with the Flash's powers. Almost every episode features some sort of jaw dropping imagery.
- X-Men: Days of Future Past and Apocalypse have shown us really spectacular super speed sequences. They're visually exciting and very entertaining.
- The Flash's cameo in Suicide Squad was one of the best moments in the entire film.
