Good use of Blue Monday. Made me mildly interested in the film, despite the previous one being incredibly dull. I did enjoy the weird miscasting of David Thewlis as a god of war. It was entertainingly terrible. Chris Pine, on the other hand, was as wooden as his name suggests.

I'm looking forward to this so much more after seeing that trailer.

Great use of Blue Monday, would love to see them just use New Order songs for the entire soundtrack.

It's a stonking remix, isn't it?

Love the trailer.

Birds of Prey looks pretty great, too.

Looks fantastic. And Blue Monday? Superb.

Pedro Pacal as Maxwell Lord? Take my money. Fantastic actor, and a character I still have a lot of affection for, from the Giffen-De Matteis JLA run.

Pascal is Max Lord? Oh, that could be interesting.

The 80s setting seems really interesting

"the ’80s was a time when the world was at its most extreme before we understood any cost."

Not to mention hopes of some influences from George Perez Wonder Woman book. Btw. The golden armour. That's probably from Kingdom come? Any good?

Kingdom Come is good stuff, aye.

The sequel-y thing, The Kingdom, not so much.

Kingdom Come is phenomenal, the art alone...

Have never read The Kingdom, unless it was the series, I vaguely remember reading, that had multiple artists, including a young Frank Quitely drawing Plastic Man?

There were a bunch of one-shots that spun out from The Kingdom - maybe Quitely worked on one of those?

The sequel is only OK, for a variety of reasons, and mostly because there was no way it was going to be as good as the first.

I think that might be it. I literally only remember the Plastic Man issue, due to the Quitely art.
