We Got This Covered: DCEU's Justice Society vs. Justice League

   In the DCEU, which superhero team would win if they went up against each other; the Justice Society or the Justice League? In this match up, we have Zack Snyder's Justice League going up against Black Adam's Justice Society (plus Shazam). If you have 100 writers write this article, you would probably get 100 different results, but We Got This Covered put out an article by Ash Martinez who bravely gave us her own answer of how this battle would end. Hawkman and Batman are pitted together in the matchups. After reading an article that listed Batman as the most powerful DC character 😅, it was nice to see someone write with a bit more common sense and thought. Any article that puts Hawkman over Batman gets a thumbs up for me. To see how Hawkman defeats Batman, and the result of the overall battle, go check out the link

Screen Rant Article Intro: DCEU Movies Chronologically & By Release Date


   The DCEU as a whole has been a huge mess since it started careening off the tracks around the time when Batman Vs. Superman was released. Snyder ducking out of the Justice League because of a family tragedy and letting another director finish it up was never going to work. The Coronavirus stalled everything. Films were either canceled or constantly pushed back. Pushing back release dates can be tolerated, but needless to say, canceling projects after announcing them is a huge turnoff for fans. DC did/does/will do that way too much. It appears that they have a shallow commitment to their characters, fans, and plans. 

   During the whole process, they started something else on the side, but the side projects ended up being more successful than most of the main projects. If I were David Zazlav, I would have dropped all of it, looked at The Batman and Joker movies, and built my new universe around them. Announce two or three movies at a time. I would have never announced this chapter one schedule that everyone expects to be canceled sooner or later anyway. Marvel may be the day of superhero movies, so let DC be the night. Marvel can be Pg-13, so let DC take the R-rated movies. Make it a dark, serious, dramatic, and unforgettable universe. They need to keep people talking about the potential but instead, they keep letting us talk about the failures.

   And here we are. Waiting for the last two lame duck movies to come out so we can get on with it in 2025. There was so much potential in the DCEU when Man of Steel came out, but they squandered it all away. That's what happens when you don't have faith in the source material or the fans. 

   Enough of my rant. I guess if I knew better that DC or Warner Brothers, I'd be sitting where Zazlav or James Gunn is sitting. We'll just have to trust they'll eventually get it right, or just leave it all behind. Screen Rant put out a helpful article to follow the DCEU in release dates and how they all fit together chronologically. Definitely gonna bookmark this article for future reference. Check it out!

DC Movies Ranked Worst to Best (24SSports)


   It's not often that we get a fairly positive review of Black Adam, but this writer for 24SSports had Black Adam ranked higher than I expected, so I was pleasantly surprised. No, Black Adam is not a perfect movie. It definitely had its problems and could have done without some things (Heroes don't kill, Skateboard kid, Snacks, etc.) but it did introduce a lot of new things to the DCU; Hawkman, the Justice Society, Nth metal ship, Hawkman's estate, potential for Isis and Hawkgirl, etc. Not to mention the first ever silver screen version of Hawkman. Finally. Personally, I would love to have a copy of the movie that cuts out the skateboard kid and the needlessly long prison breakout scene. But in my humble opinion, it's not as bad as many make it out to be. Yes, it came up short of $400 million worldwide. WB did very little marketing for it. China banned it. There was absolutely nothing where I live in Japan. Not even in the theater where the movie was being shown. Whatever the reasons, Warner Bros. failed this film. Setting all that aside, there are fans who enjoyed the film and the writer of the article appears to be one of them. He gave Black Adam a pretty high ranking among the DC films. Here are the films in alphabetical order.
