Is it possible that #metoo is to blame for JL's low BO numbers? BA is the lead actor and Harvey Weinstein's production company co-produced JL. Should WB do something to protect future DCEU films? WW and SS were before #metoo, but WW 2 and SS 2 are not.

It’s possible. BA is the lead and more visible. So he must be clean, but he wasn’t. He apologized to only 1 of the 3 women who accused him. It’s not clear if he really donated the dirty money he earned. And he’s still a supporter of his maniac brother.

HW and his production company are less visible. I doubt the average moviegoer knows HW produced JL. If they know that, they in all likelihood also know what happened to him and his company. Three days after the first accusations, it was announced that HW got fired. Bob Weinstein, HW’s brother, also said that HW won’t receive credit on any upcoming releases. Last I heard, only 3 of the 9 members of the board of directors still remain.

Funny. Someone accused Bob Weinstein of sexual harassment.

I bet they knew. That's why they fired him so quickly. Being the owner or founder doesn't mean you can't get fired. That guy Mark Twight too got fired from his own gym.

I want to say good, but many innocent people may suffer too. Many people work for TWC and all the shareholders. I think only those accused of sexual harassment and those who knew and didn't do anything and those who tried to cover it up should suffer and give the money they earned to charity.

I agree wholeheartedly.

I agree. But sometimes you must do something even when some innocent people get hurt. It’s wrong to let sexual harassment go unpunished. It’s wrong to say too many men are doing it, therefore, it’s impossible to boycott them all. It’s wrong to think that if you boycott them all, you won’t be able to enjoy any art or can’t work in that particular industry anymore. Unfortunately, too many people have that mentality and that’s why sexual harassment will continue like it is some thing normal. .

Agree. Another one is that's the way it's always been done. That's why it should continue. :disappointed:

Good to know, Mike. Also good to know is that WW 2 will be the first film to adopt the Producers Guild of America’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Guidelines. Read here.

I wonder how these male predators select their female victims. Looks, age, personality, location, how she carries herself? What is it? They have worked with many women from average looking to beauty queens, but not all are victims.

Justice League fiasco may hurt Aquaman success. Link to article

The most important job of their current picture, in addition to making lots of money for the studio, was to tee up the James Wan-directed, Jason Momoa-starring picture about the undersea hero. But Justice League’s muddled story and thin characterization have left Arthur Curry and his trident-wielding alter ego adrift, a mere cipher without much personality.

It also puts pressure on Aquaman. Just read how much money WB will lose with JL.

It's hard not to conclude from this that making tentpole superhero movies for under $100 million is smart and that in most cases making them for $200 million or more is pretty dumb.

Fans are upset because of a big tweak in the backstory of King Nereus and Queen Mera.

In the comics, King Nereus was “intended” to Queen Mera back when the latter was living in her home colony on Xebel. Before they were married, Mera was actually sent out to assassinate Aquaman, though she ended up falling in love with him instead. But in a recent sitdown with the Las Vegas Review Journal, Lundgren confirmed that Nereus and Mera’s relationship will be dramatically different on the big screen. Rather than being betrothed to one another, Nereus will actually be Mera’s father in the DCEU.

From lovers to father and daughter? I would be upset too. It's very confusing and completely unnecessary.
