    How horrible does that sound? Seriously. Mother Boxes. No this is not a weird porn thread, it's a thread about comic book movies, keep your pants on!

    DC is releasing Justice League next year and are desperate to keep up with Marvel. This movie will have bad guys try to collect Mother Boxes which are powerful mystical boxes that do shit.

    IS THIS NOT JUST THEIR ANSWER TO INFINITY STONES?!?!?!! Marvel is so far ahead of the game it's ridiculous. DC has no chance, Marvel's MacGuffins are FAR superior and fun and there's 6 of them as opposed to 3.

    I'm just saying DC sucks and shouldn't try, they're going to crash and burn.

    Yay Infinity Stones!!!

    As a comic fan I've always enjoyed the mother boxes and especially BOOM tubes.

    These are artifacts from another planet, Apokolips


    But yeah DC is absolutely desperate to catch up to marvel and because of this they are rushing things and their movie universe will ultimately suffer from it

    Fuck marvel kiddy movies. LMAO @ this foxbot.
    I'll stick to the grown up hero movies like justice League and batman. And if I want to see a speedster who isn't wearing a gay silver latex suit I'll watch FLash. The true speedster. Marvel movies are nothing but comedies. How many lame Tony stark jokes to I have do listen to?
    Batman > marvel universe
    Nuff said

    Also mother boxes > gems

    By grown up you mean movies that aren't very good. By both critics and fans.

    Batman vs superman was a box office bomb. The market has spoken and its saying "help dc"

    That's not tied in to the current DC universe. Would you like me to post the fantastic four series film? They had 4 tries and still didnt get it right. Despite having good actors. Punisher? 2 tries, Spiderman? 5 tries lol in a few years Etc. We can pick and choose but were talking about the Current DC and marvel films tied in together.

    Ps. You can have that trash actor and his films ( reynolds) ..

    Lol at marvel movies being comedies.

    That poster is gonna be pissed when he realizes DC is trying to go this route as well. See the new JL teaser trailer. Joke central.

    That's what the fans want. Moments of comedy. Not a movie trying so hard to take itself too seriously. Like the Dark knight. Cringeworthy boat scene of seriousness

    The original spider man movies, especially spider man 2 are some of the best comic book movies to date.

    Because box office is ruled by the elite critics and rotten tomatoes is the premier source for reviews right ? Just because millions of idiots see them doesn't mean their better.

    Well mother boxes are an old thing, been around in their comics for decades.


    Dc has been rushing their movies though that's for sure. Batman vs superman was a turd

    There a difference between jokes being in few scenes and needed. To marvels approach of every other minute there is some lame attempt of a joke. From every villian to every superhero in all the current marvel movies. Yawnnn...keep your kiddy movies.
    Batman beating criminals to pulp and taking names. Not giving a damn bc he's the God damn BatMan. Keep your lame Tony stark..

    Yawn, adjusted for inflation? Nope, and believe more people especially critics would take the Nolan film series over some Disney marvel shit with Tony stark or cgi avengers.
    One thing I can deduce is that ppl who honestly enjoy marvel movies currently are most likely fans of those transformer movies. And I'll add this, marvel spends almost 6x the amount of advertising as DC does. For a reason, they suck.

    I don't understand what any of this means.

    The fans have spoken with their money and they want what marvel putting out. So much so even DC is taking s page from their book.
