    I do not know if WB remembers, but there’s a teensy tiny little pint-sized cutie-pie pixie-dimensions of a DC movie that they have FORGOTTEN TO HIRE A director for that should’ve been coming to theaters a lot earlier than Shazam, or batman.

    • SAMURAI36

      You’re talking about Flash? Honestly, I’m more excited for Shazam and Batman, than I am for that. I’ve been getting my Flash fix on TV, so that one can wait, IMO.

  • Carl

    Yeah sure he will be really cheap and easy to push around. He also really fits the feel of Shazam, the tale of a boy who can transform into an adult with Superman like abilities is really horrific stuff. lol

    • Jett Batmanonfilm

      Yes, because once you’ve directed a horror film you’re only allowed
      to direct horror films from that point forward. They actually stamp the
      word HORROR on your forehead and you’re only allowed to think horror
      thoughts.

      I don’t know how the heck that Sam Raimi guy got away with making Spider-Man movies, they must’ve forgot to stamp him.

      • Carl

        Raimi Directed the much more fun and campy Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness as well as Produced the Hercules TV series (a superhero show) before Spider-Man.

        • Jett Batmanonfilm

          Okay, let’s try James Wan directing the well reviewed Fast 7.

          • Carl

            I didn’t say it doesn’t happen and can’t work out. Although Fast 7 is a pretty dumb movie that got inflated reviews for handling the Paul Walker stuff well.
