BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE---a source provided information on the sequel.

Wonder Woman's costume:

"“traditional, yet sleeker” costume that’s “battle ready.” She’ll have a blue leather skirt, silver-armored cuffs that reach to her elbows, golden tiara (with a design of some sort in the center, possibly the red star) and a variation of the traditional-looking red top (no word on additional armor on it). Her overall appearance is described as “Amazon warrior princess” and definitely not an urban reimagining. She’s there to kick ass and that’s readily apparent. Word is that WB is getting a VERY positive response on her appearance to those they’ve shown it to.

Wonder Woman's weapons:

"That’s right, not just a golden lasso here. Wonder Woman will have no less than FOUR weapons, including shield, sword, spear, and of course, the traditional lasso. It’s also noted that she will wear the shield on her back, Captain America style, when not in use."

Wonder Woman in the sequel:

"Her character will be introduced as “Diana” in the film initially before we ever see her as Wonder Woman. She will have a fair amount of screen time and will team up with Batman and Superman for the final battle against an un-named villain who may be working or controlled by Lex Luther. Her origin will be intentionally vague, but she is brought into the fold to show that there are other superheroes in the universe other than Superman."


Batman:

"Batman is said to be a veteran crime fighter that will do anything it takes to get the job done. Superman is a rule follower, so they often don't see eye to eye, which is a consistent dynamic with their initial relationship. As for Batman's usual digs; Wayne Manor is there, but Bruce Wayne chooses to live on the property in a modern-looking cottage by a lake (not a van down by the river, though). Underneath the cottage is a modernized Batcave, which houses a Batwing, along with his other gear (Batmobile, batarangs, etc.)."

Lex Luthor:

"[Luthor] thinks he is god's gift to humanity and the best that humanity has to offer, which leads to his hatred of Superman. Because Superman is basically a 'god' it makes Lex feel less than perfect. Lex tries to sway people to dislike and fear Superman - and many people ARE swayed. Some see Superman as a hero, while others see him as the ultimate threat."

Hated LOOPER.
Hated that film with young kids the same guy did before LOOPER.
Will probably end up hating STAR WARS (which I used to love).

Damn. I was hoping for the long-awaited Rambo-G.I. Joe crossover. The 1986 Ruby Spears animated one, that is.

Rambo is one thing, but the Equalizer is something else. Any fan of 1980s shows would appreciate that.

I'm getting tired of these poor sequels. And if I even HEAR the name "Brian Tyler" as composer, I'm gonna wrech.

I wish I could like the prequels, I really do. My hat's off to those who find things to like--love?--about those films but I just don't have the Midi-Chlorians in me to do that.

It'll be interesting to experience Rambo's ruminations on aging, the cancerous growth of evil in society, and the vagaries of existence. When will he have time to blow away platoons of mooks? wink

What you call ruminating, Rambo calls "burning a country to the ground."

Isn't that the same RAMBO rumor that crops up at least once a year, but is always debunked soon after?

Sorry Jim, I should explain, my love of Star Wars is mainly allied to Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back. Jedi is okay, but not as good as the first two.
I can get through the prequel cartoons...just, although parts of AOTC (most of it) and ROTS (the ending) are crummy and Phantom Menace is hit and miss a lot of times too.
Agreed though, he (Lucas) blew some major points and almost ruined the joy of the first films (midi-chlorians, Jar-Jar, Jake Lloyd, that strong beautiful mother Leia remembered in Jedi...you know, the one she never ever saw who just lost the will to live after delivering twins, despite a quick name check!!!, Vader's rubbish Frankenstein moment...I could go on) frown

Rambo should be regulated to that rocking chair on the front porch, sniping at dogs and kids that wander onto his lawn while retrieving that little ball. Imaging him saying, "Get off my lawn!" with that Stallone accent.

Kevin, I almost entirely agree with you. Love Star Wars (still refuse to call it A New Hope) and Empire, Jedi was the begining of the rot setting in and as for the prequels... six hours' of movies and I only liked the bits where Natalie Portman was showing her chest jellies in that white catsuit in Attack of the Clones.

And yeah all the inconsistencies really really bothered me and totally debunk Lucas' (retrospective) claim that he had it all planned out all along.

Ben: That boy is our only hope.

Yoda; No. There is another.

Ben: Another? Really? WTF???

Yoda: Erm... yes Obi Wan. Luke's sister. There at the birth were you.

Ben: Oh yeah! Bloody Alzheimer's.

I remember when Disney made The Black Hole to compete with Star Wars. Now they're feeding it with Star Wars!

Actually that "Mexico" script was around long before Rambo IV got made and I'm glad they didn't use it so far. I personally wouldn't mind if Stallone would just stop... He ended part IV on a perfect note.

Didn't Sly talk up the next Rambo movie being somewhat akin to Predator? Now that would be fun... Rambo v Predator.

One of the greatest posts ever hunted-and-pecked out on this glorious FSM board was this screed from JSWalsh, back in May 2012 in the "People vs. George Lucas" thread:

"Whenever I think of all the shit Lucas says, all the arrogance and outright stuppidity he expresses, and see his crappy movies--everything after EMPIRE, with the exceptions of a few parts of SITH--I loathe him as I would a crack dealer for filling the lives of so many with such worthless, life-avoiding shit. Then I consider his first three movies, and his great talent, and remember why I just can`t hate him for more than a few seconds, because he is a freaking genius who just lost his way when he could have been Orson Welles with mainstream success. I just can`t dismiss the quality of his first 3 directorial efforts, they are masterpieces. When I see this trailer, I wish everyone over 13 who dresses up like Star Trek or Star Wars people should be required to use only actjal working weapons at conventions, and the bunch of retards would wipe each other out in a weekend. I`d rather watch Rosie O`Donnell eat three buckets of KFC Extra Greasy without the assistance of napkins than see this movie. WORD!"

"George Lucas keeps saying these are basically children`s movies, and you know who I`ve never heard bitching about these movies? Children, their intended audience. You know who can never STFU about what Lucas does to his own creations? Chronologically-adult males who should have learned long ago that these are entertainments for summer movie nights when they were kids, and maybe occassional revisits over the years, after they have grown up and moved on from childish junkfood diets of escapism and moved on to literature, higher forms of film art, and music, and realistic adult interactions with the world and entertainment products. if my dad ever went on and on because they were colorizing a Flash Gordon short or something, my mom would have had him committed. Nowadays, someone who treats this stuff as the kids`s stuff it is is considered heartless; in the past they`d be considered an ordinary adult of average maturity who has a grip on reality."

TOM SERVO:

The info was released by Germany's Splendid Films which says it bought the rights to the sequel:

" "Mit 'Rambo V' kehrt Sylvester Stallone in seine Paraderolle zurück. Dieses Mal legt er sich mit dem mexikanischen Kartell an. Stallone, der auch für das Drehbuch verantwortlich ist, beschreibt den neuen Rambo als seine Version von 'No Country for Old Men.' Produzent ist, wie schon beim letzten 'John Rambo,' Avi Lerner ('The Expendables 1-3')."

Which translates to: "With 'Rambo V' Sylvester Stallone returns in his iconic role. This time he goes up against a Mexican cartel. Stallone, who has also written the screenplay, describes the new Rambo as his version of 'No Country for Old Men.' Like the last film, 'Rambo V' is produced by Avi Lerner ("The Expendables 1-3")

MIKE J:

Stallone bought the movie rights to the novel HUNTER which has a special ops team tracking a half man/half monster which escaped from a secret genetics lab. He announced that be the next Rambo movie, but apparently changed his mind. I hope he still makes it as a separate non-Rambo movie.
