So confused by Mat's assassment of the Doctor Strange trailer. It looks NOTHING like anything we've ever seen from Marvel.

visually, yes, it's nothing like we've seen before, but in terms of how the trailer was put together, it's cookie cutter. Guy has great life->something bad happens->searches to find himself->finds power within himself->learns of evil force->fights evil force->wins

Guy has great life->something bad happens->searches to find himself->finds power within himself->learns of evil force->fights evil force->wins

It's a condensed version of the hero's journey and doesn't offer much to the audience other than "the cg looks cool."

@inferiorego:

Haha, yeah I guess you're right. That's just the case with 99% of superheroes though, so I always expect that most of the plot is going to be the same in these movies.

Wasn't it said or shown that Flash going back and forth through time caused a bit of a tilt in the Earth's atmoshpere causing Superman's ship to crash into Daily Planet and Joe Chill to miss Thomas and hit Bruce, I only seen Flashpoint: The Animated Movie.

Sorry, didn't mean to plug some other guy. Just wanted to know if you knew him.

- So it's sounding like Batgirl and Batman him-up in the Killing Joke prologue? That seems odd, if for no other reason than it didn't happen in the comic.

- that Wonder Woman trailer was so great, definitely my favorite from the show.

- Can you guys, and us guys (and gals) make a pact to never over analyze a teaser trailer? Regular trailers, go nuts, but teaser trailers are not worth the time. They simply prove that the project is being worked on and give you a sample of the font they intend to use on the title.

Batman-Batgirl isn't incestuous, it's just silly.

@avatar_of_green: Sure I do, but is that what he said? I heard it as "a typical" not "atypical." Otherwise it doesn't make sense with what came afterwards.
