For those who saw Black Adam, what were your thoughts about Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate?

 

I believe this is his first comic book movie, so I was curious how he did 

 

 

Arguably the best character in the movie, I'd deadass watch a solo or JSA movie with him. I do have an issue with how his helmet functions, but that's on the writers, not him

I liked it but they def toned down his power. I think they were inspired by dr. Strange in how they used the visual effects of his powers even though he technically outdates him in thr comic department. The way he crestes illusions looks like dr. Strange doing mirror dimension stuff. 

 

Also the helmet doesnt talk in the movie.

Stumbled upon the Harley Quinn Animated Series comic book while doing holiday shopping for family. It is a short series acting as a gap between season 2 and 3 of the Harley Quinn cartoon. Overall it was fine as an extension to the show, strictly focusing on Harley and Ivy with the same humor. I thought it was well drawn, with very expressive facial detail closely matching the show.

Yep the helmet not talking and him being able to casually take the helmet off at will kinda odd. To my knowledge, the helmet chooses you and it kind of possess the user, you can't just take it on and off like that. But I suppose you could argue it's a different universe with different rules

I just saw Black Adam.

 

Pros:

 

Costume design/ action/powers were great.

Rock was pretty good as was Aldis Hodge and Pierce as Hawkman/Dr Fate. 

End credit scene was pretty cool.

 

 

Cons:

Pacing is uneven.

The main villain is unmemorable. The actor is the same guy who played Jafar in 2019 live action Aladdin.  Hes been let down twice by big blockbusters.

The kid (Amon) was pretty annoying. I hope he doesnt play a huge role in a sequel.

One character is killed that I really want to see again 😞

 

Overall: Decent film. I would see a sequel.

7/10

I was prepared for that, least they get to make an actual ending tho. So that pretty much kills the CW universe. I'll admit the universe fell off hard the past few years but I'll definitely miss it

 

Only thing left is Superman and Lois which technically isn't the Arrowverse

Ok, I just got back from the theater to watch Black Adam, and while the movie hast its flaws, it is a great spectacle that will keep you entertained.

I say that is a solid 7 and if you feel generous an 8.

Spoiler

TBH, I think that he is a good Dr. Fate.
As other pointed out, it is kind of jarring that they kept removing the helmet, since we all know that Nabu would have never allowed that, but I want to think that it was Nabu allowing him because he was close to his death.

Kinda dissapointed that they decided to off Pierce Brosnan instead of keeping him around for at least another movie.

Hope nobody is sleeping on the 3 hours of goodness on Thursday nights on TV. In hour 1 you got Law & Order, in hour 2 you got Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and in hour 3 you got Law & Order: Organized Crime.

 

Rick Gonzalez (Wild Dog) is on Law & Order: Organized Crime

Mehcad Brooks (Guardian) is on Law & Order

 

Yes, the 3 shows do have crossovers with each other from time to time.

Lookin like DC going scorched earth, Wonder Woman 3 cancelled. Possibly rebooting everything after The Flash 

Yeah I don't like where this might be going in the future. Guess I'll start investing in anime a little more now.

I'm of a mixed feeling on this.

 

I think most of the general public would like Cavill, Gadot, and Momoa to continue in their roles.

 

On the other hand, you have Ezra's nonsense, WW84 being disappointing, negative publicity from Batgirl cancellation etc.

 

I think Gunn wants a tighter/more focused universe and that could be interesting, thought that probably means full reboot/recasting for all those listed above.
