Taika Waititi is going to be in Suicide Squad two. I have my guesses on who he'll play, but if I'm right they're not going to announce it until Halloween.

Birds of Prey anyone?

https://www.comicbookmovie.com/birds_of_prey/birds-of-prey-teaser-trailer-images-leak-online-feature-black-mask-huntress-and-more-a170327
Why not. JLU Bringing in Hunteress and the Question story line is one of the best. The battle royal with Vixen, Black Canary, Wonder Women, Hawkgirl and Hunteress was epic. What a shame about the lack of Amy Acker. She is perfect and has some action chops from PoI. Still crushing it at 42. However I don't care for the DC movies. Oh well.

In the other cartoons Birds of Prey were also very strong episodes.

Still waiting eagerly for the Harley & Poison Ivy show. Again some of the best episodes.

I've been told the Batman Hush cartoon movie is not the greatest adaptation. I haven't seen it, but I've seen a trailer of it, and visually it looks good, but the voice acting sounds terrible in the trailer.  I guess I'll just have to get the book.

It's one of those things where I'm not quite too familiar newer rogues gallery villains. I stopped reading comics around 1995 and didn't pick up comics again until the Walking Dead comics started it's run.

Hush is hard to adapt, but it sounded like they added stuff that didn't need to be there and/or wasn't good.

I think Joker will be a great movie, but what's the point unless they do a Batman movie set in the 80s or early 90s? This version of The Joker would be like 85 years old today if they made a current Batman movie with him.

A few things.

1 Phoenix isn't locked into a contract.

2 Phoenix enjoyed making the movie.

3. He might work with Todd Phillips again, not necessarily for a Joker movie.

4. Matt Reeves Batman is not connected to the DCEU

5. It is supposedly taking place in the 90s or early 2000s. The math equation works out if Joker takes place in 1983 and Bruce Wayne is 10 at the time then if Batman is 30 then that takes place in 2003.

6. The Lazarus Pit exists in the Batman mythos.  The Joker is known to be baptized in some liquid at some point in his own mythos. So, if I was a Batman movie screenwriter I could put those together. Jared Leto has talked about Joker's agelessness at some point. It's a thing.

7. They don't have to go that route though. Phoenix could pass for 30s to 50s because he's in his 40s.  If Arthur Fleck is 35 he'd only be 55 in 2003. Jack Nicholson was 52 in 1989. And really the only difference between Jack Nicholson in the Shining and Jack Nicholson in Batman was weight. All he has to do is be his regular weight to look like Phoenix has aged. Phoenix already looks way different than he did 1 year ago when he lost 52 pounds. They could also not address it and nobody would care much.  Cesar Romero was 63 in 1966 and was great.

8. Todd Phillips says this Joker will definitely not cross over. **** definite is a definite word. Joker could die in this movie.

Pretty interesting cast; it's kind of all over the place. I do look forward to not seeing John Cena in it.

Hmmm...I think if you are going to do Suicide Squad right.  I mean truly do it better than any comic book, you do take out most of the D list villains.  You need that fear that any one of the characters could die, so that you are invested.

BnM. I am the same way. I don’t watch the Arrowverse anymore but Crisis sounds crazy and with a 4 show crossover it is a full movie worth of content.

If they're smart, they'll milk it and do a special 2-hour long feature with behind the scenes, backgrounds, etc.

I really need to catch up on the Arrowverse shows, but pretty much all of them except Legends of Tomorrow got in a creative rut a few years back. It's so hard to care now.

Considering it's Arrow that's ending this season instead of Supergirl, I suspect that Supergirl's fate from the comic version will be passed on to Oliver Queen. Considering how many fake endings Arrow's had, it would probably be the only believable way for the show to end at this point.

I really don't remember where I left off on each show....

Arrow.... end of S4? it's now on what? S7?
Flash.... beginning of S3? it on S5 now?
Time Travelers..... middle of S2? now also on S5?
Supergirl.... early S3? now on S4?
I feel like I'm missing one.....

Has Batgirl/woman started?

Is there any intent to cross this over with DCU shows, like Titans and Doom Patrol as well?
I've completely checked out on anything CW so I have no idea what's going on with any of it.

Yeah, you're missing Black Lightning, which started not in the Arrowverse but now apparently is in it now that the shows people actually cared about are ending.

Not yet, I believe. It's supposed to start this coming season.

I wouldn't imagine so, unless they took the Arrowverse shows away from The CW & put them all on WB's streaming service.

As for where I am...

The last Arrow I saw was halfway through Season 6, and they're now on Season 8.
The last Flash I saw was Season 4, and they're now on Season 6.
The last Legends of Tomorrow I saw was Season 3, and they're now on Season 5.
The last Supergirl I saw was halfway through Season 3, and they're now on Season 5. Not sure I care to ever catch up on that trainwreck of a show.
I care even less about Black Lightning than I do Supergirl.

Basically, I ignore the shows when they air and catch up on the BluRays. The recent season had a weird, staggered release with Arrow & Flash releasing last month and Supergirl/Legends releasing this month. I only have last season's Flash & Arrow sets.

How could I forget about Black Lightning.
S1 was good. S2 wasn't as good. I don't think there was a S3 yet... or was there... decline? I think it declined enough to join the rest of the Arrowverse.

Since I've been 100% streaming and binging, it's hard to remember what came on what channel if I didn't use to tune into a channel to actual watch it at some point. LOL

Erica Durance is also coming back as Lois Lane for the cross over.

I wouldn't at all be surprised if Dean Cain gets back into the tights in this event too.

It's a pretty fun show for the time. A bit dated now obviously. I haven't seen it since it originally aired. I rather liked that version of Lois although she still loses to perfection that is DCAU Lois.

Dean Cain did well as Supes, somewhat better than smallville version which I couldn't stand as it dragged out the premise to a ridiculous degree. A bit of a shame he went off the deep end with his economics.

It was a perfect 90s Superman. You know who would have made a great Lois Lane? Courtney Cox.  I like to think in an alternate reality this happened. Gale Weathers is basically Lois Lane. Demi Moore and Jennifer Connelly would have been great too for different reasons. If I were to cast it today I'd have Jennifer Lawrence or Miley Cyrus simply for their voices. Actually thinking back to specific eras I can think of whoever would be good. Like Heather Langencamp in the 80s.
Alex Essoe I'd cast in anything.
