    Snyder is still a maniac- who in their right mind will make a 4 hour assembly cut of a movie when he knew it was supposed to be shown in theatres? He has severe pacing issues That being said, warner also is incredibly dumb for rushing justice league before solo films Ps: If you guys have seen it, that joker scene in particular will be making dc an even bigger laughing stock

    He's just verifying the info I think, lego can't do anything about it because he just posted images of comics

    Where I live, I'm sure he's gonna go for $40+ in local currency so.... I'm not gonna spend that much even for the punisher D2cs do go on sale but the fact that this is marvel we are talking about, I doubt so

    I thought the quality of cgi in bvs was fine. The problem was Snyder was unrestrained. When I rewatch the harry potter films today, I see many cracks in the cgi so I think you may be viewing them through the lens of nostalgia, no offense. The cgi fire for example looks like something from the saber plugin in after effects I never really liked plastic man in the comics, mainly jla, and the cartoons. He always came off as too over the top. So I really don't care that they genderswapped him. However, I do think wb has no idea what they are doing as usual, so I doubt the film will be good I feel like Ezra miller is terrible as the flash though, so that may be a detriment to the quality of the film. On a side note- I don't like that they are trying to make keaton the main universe batman- sounds incredibly stupid. All my complaints aside, I"ll forgive wb if they get Jessica cruz or justice league dark right (which they probably won't). It's good lego has mastered their flesh head printing but I don't care for 66 batman I'm okay with superman having a growth throughout the films. My problem with him in bvs was that they rushed his death. Bringing the discussion back to lego again, after looking at the batman, venom, ironman and carnage bust, I really have no faith in lego to execute superhero busts well. The eyebrows for carnage and venom are so simplistic and crude.

    I feel that applies only to ww84, the rest of the dceu suffers mainly from terrible writing. Ss does "try to keep up with the times" Also Bvs isn't faithful. (On a side note my problem with it isn't mainly about faithfulness but the pacing- it was a slog at times and the writing was not good. Yet, I feel people are too hung up on Lex's and superman's portrayal, sure Eisenberg didn't behave like lex but he's fine as a villain- I dare say enjoyable. Why did he get so much flack when Heath didn't act like joker from any of the past adaptations and was met with praise? (But the jar of piss was stupid) (I agree Snyder's take on batman was bad though))

    From the joker trike chase, the design of the batmobile around the tyres, cockpit and back area with the flip up section are very much inspired by the arkham knight batmobile- you can watch ashnflash's video for more info

    Introducing new characters is not simple from legos pov though 1) lego has given us characters like firefly, firestorm, lobo and blue beetle- I have no idea how these sets sold but the gist is that lego did not meet the sales target they wanted so they opted for 'safer options' with iconic villains This has likely been caused by: A) declining popularity of dc and rising demand for its substitutes eg. Marvel B) Lack of demand for the specific characters they have chosen C) locking them away in expensive sets like scarecrows fear harvester or batmech which collectors are not willing to pay for just for the figs 2) lego may not prefer to produce new moulds for characters in a theme that sells poorly due to the costs and the fact that the moulds may not be reusable -partly the reason why we don't have batman who laughs because I guarantee you he is more popular than killer moth and firefly -basically lego only gives us better sets if we buy whatever sets they make BUT theres hope because lego SEEMINGLY recognised that some collectors care more about the characters than batvehicles and so we had the cmf

    On a side note regarding lego making sets based on dc adaptations, they obviously tested the waters with arkham fans with the rc batmobile minifig However, they must have concluded that the sales were not strong enough for full-on set adaptations but strong enough for indirect references like the arkham batmobile from last year Pity because had they just sold the fig with an accurate knight batmobile it may have been able to sell better

    Lego thought they could just make generic sets with iconic villains like for spider-man and they would sell- but really spider-man is in a different spot with rising popularity due to the mcu and spiderverse Batman on the other hand is met with declining popularity from the dceu so the sets don't sell as well. Lego themselves realized that a sizeable number of collectors of the batman sets are hardcore fans and thus they produced more ucs sets and now this 66 set. Really what lego should have done is dare to use villains that collectors and kids would both be interested in - the most obvious being algamations of the justice league from the evil batman in metal to the crime syndicate. But of course, when they see the sales for spiderman sets, they think that sticking to the iconic villains should be no problem

    I wonder... since dc is getting basically no sets this year what will the fandome set be- I'm guessing it will be based on 66 batman just because we are getting him again but maybeeeeeeee it will be a suciide squad set resusing harley

    If the $300 set is the bugle, black cat will probably be making her lego debut there.

    Did he post it on instagram because I can't find it So did this whole bugle rumor start with fulcrum allegedly posting the logo and falconfan saying d2cs may be a comic set

    Dude I'm sorry why are you so anxious about lego sets? As a dc fan its enough to be anxious about the shitty movies Anyways its not like lego is the only dc merch we have- we have games and comics too

    Nah a wave like last year is basically no sets for me because I didn't want any Lego is so lazy with batman sets and even though they stick to rebirth they didn't give us batgirl's burnside outfit. Heck, do the batmen from metal and you have a more interesting wave of villains right there But noooooooo..... let's remake penguin, two face and riddler again! Batman beyond? Who's that? Nah lets give batman the same suit across sets

    Ah man I hope they don't put that thor and cap variant exclusive to the benatar as falconfan seems to suggest- too expensive for me

    New helmet mould for panther sounds better than the head cowl piece which I found weird

    Metal sets would have been so epic, they could have given us a joker dragon build

    Dream wave? Normal sets Anything with the justice league dark- small build of house of mystery or something Comic based green lantern sets with any corps besides yellow- could be based on blackest night or be a build of oa. Or just give me an updated jessica cruz in a justice league odyssey set Titans rebirth set- just for the figs, lego can put whatever titan bike or jet they want Battle packs with any group of superheroes- preferably in rebirth attire Fortress of solitude with black suit superman and any one of the many characters from superman's mythology-except lex Comic vignette sets like tdkr cover D2c Arkham city Justice league watchtower Flash museum (could be a set too)
