    Well, a legitimate gripe about the CBMs are forgettable villains so by using someone like the Rogues vs someone like Zoom - the crew can mold some likeability into the villains and give'em personality and an unexpected resonance with the audience. Plus, after SS, I'm hoping Captain Boomerang gets better screen time and development elsewhere.

    I guess The Rogues would be a good way of taking the successes of Suicide Squad (likeable, standout, villains) and applying that to a solo Superhero movie ;).

    Which of course is the reverse of how they should have done it.

    Latest rumor is Captain Cold and Golden Glider will be among the Rogues appearing.

    No really? :p

    Well, of course they're not going to leave out the leader of The Rogues ;).

    And I guess Lisa's in there so it's not a completel a sausage fest, and you can get some fun interaction with Cold. Curious as to how they might handle depicting her and The Rogues' abilities in general...

    Heat Wave is also probably a safe bet to be in it :cool:.

    Well, it would be comic-accurate to make him the first villain Barry faces (not counting Boomerang) :p.

    Well, all we need to hear is Chattum signs up as Captain Cold.

    That's a pity. Third director's the charm?

    Did Snyder have a hand in this too? Really, unless they start having good movies with a cohesive flow, I'm going to side with the director here. We had issues with Marvel Studios plenty of times (Thor 2 and Ant Man) and for my money neither of those turned out well IMHO.

    So far I think only Johns and Berg have been attached as producers.

    OK, have they officially stepped away from Snyder? I had not heard of it yet, or forgot. THANX. That is a little reassuring, until we get to release time.

    Not sure. It's hard to tell who's involved because they release cast and crew info in piece meal. But you're welcome.

    Snyder might be producer still in name only.

    I think we're definitely going to see a reduced presence of Snyder in the DCEU once Justice League hits.

    I believe Johns and Breg will takeover everything in the DCEU after Justice League, That were we going to see the real DC come out starting the Flash (IMO).

    I thought Ant-Man was fun and Thor: The Dark World was, at the very least, entertaining. Of course, I respect your opinions. And I agree about siding with the directors. They are hired for a reason.
    I truly hope so. I'm curious if the Aquaman and Batman movies might get pushed forward while WB looks for a new director for Flash who will work well with them creatively. Unlike Deadpool 2, the Flash has a release date currently. Since Gambit had director issues, Fox removed a date for it and didn't put a date on Deadpool 2. I think that's a better decision. Make sure everything behind-the-scenes is working out before putting a release date out there.

    Anyway, WB could find a new director quickly, but otherwise, it might be best to keep working on this one a little longer instead of rushing it out. The last thing we need is another divisive DC movie.

    Hmm, wonder if Jeff Nichols would direct it.
