    You maven have said something about this, but I would have missed it if you did. Do you think the Batman/Superman movie will tie in to the TV shows (Arrow/Flash)? Not directly tie in; mind you. Are they supposed to be in the same universe?

    • scikaiju says:

      WB and DC has said the movies will not be connecting to the TV shows. Which is a mistake IMO, seeing how the shows, at least Arrow any way since Flash hasn't aired yet,, has built in fan base that would go to see Arrow in a Justice League movie.

      • Burgl3cut says:

        With all due courtesy, I do not 100% agree with the mistake sentiment. As this podcast has stated, DC has been trailing behind Marvel in the movie department. The exception being that DC has been putting out superior animated feature products. This puts DC in a precarious position.

        Marvel has already benchmarked the idea of having a TV show that ties in with their movie universe. So what is DC to do? Do they tie in and run the risk of being viewed as copy cats? Or do they do they carry on with keeping separate TV and movie universes, and either and both stand or fall on their own? To paraphrase Kevin Smith from "To Fat for 40!", do you go where the puck is or where it is going to be?

        Granted, DC is missing an opportunity. They do have plans for having a Justice League movie in the future. They could take advantage of the TV medium and flesh out individual stories in an episodic fashion, so they do not take up precious time or get cut short for plot expediency on the big screen. Also they have already invested in the TV shows, so it would also be a money saver. Not to mention they will also have one of their stock characters already available in the form of the Flash.

        I could write pages, going back and forth about this, but suffice it to say. I think it would have been cool to tie in the movies to their TV series, but I do not have an issue with DC not doing movie connections.

        • Pixel Dan says:

          Yep, I think I could go either way. Cool if they do, cool if they don't. Arguments really could be made for either direction.

          • Burgl3cut says:

            My only question would be this. If they keep the universes separate now and decide to combine them later, will they create a televisual "crisis" story arc? Things that make you go, "Hmmm." 🙂

    You guys hit ever point of the new TMNT Movie. Lots to Love, nit picks…Splinter/Origin story…not my favorite. I don't like that he just found a book and became a ninja warrior. April was too involved with turtles directly. Everything else, hugely entertaining for me and my ten year old. Folks should see it.

  • Burgl3cut says:

    By the way, I did go see the Turtles Movie. I was not going to until the podcast. I was just going to wait for home release. I was pleased and did not feel like I wasted my money. I will admit that I did not guffaw at the funny parts (except at the end of Ralph's speech when they were falling at the climax), but they were amusing. I may get crucified for saying so, but I did not feel that Megan Fox's performance was half bad and they did give her part some meat. She was not just a straight man for jokes, and she was not merely a femme that constantly needed saving. All in all, a good movie. Thanks for the review, guys.

    PS I apologize for the excessive postings. I'll leave it for a while now.
