What'd he pull off?

Collected shrapnel from a grenade.
Copied Quicksilvers "double cop gun smack" from the kitchen scene.

Stuff like that.

Bullets still seem to go far faster for him than Peter though.

Not anymore. Both he and Wally catch multiple bullets fairly easily in the Crisis on earth x church fight.

Think they'll do a hard reboot across the board?

They can do a soft reboot via Flashpoint. Use that movie to explain away Batffleck leaving and replace him with a younger Batman maybe. Do that and leave everything else the same.

Ok. This Earth X crossover is fucking sick. The church fight? Bruh.

A lot of us who were in their late teens early twenties are in our thirties now and have less time and more responsibilities now. Also some of us have outgrown some of the juvenile bullshit.

Studios dont get anywhere close to the entire Box Office receipts. Its complicated but roughly half goes to the theatres screening the film (less towards the beginning of its run - more towards the end). Then you might have shit like participants who negotiated gross percentage points (they get paid a percentage of total profits) - this is how RDJ made $50 million from Avengers.

Studios play this stuff pretty close to their vests but a decent rule of thumb is that a film has to make twice its budget back at the BO before it becomes profitable. That rule tends to bear out IMO also because if a film stalls out around that point studios usually think long and hard about whether to make a sequel.

Take it with a grain of salt given that theirs a fair bit of guesstimation but heres a fairly credible breakdown of how much money Batman v Superman would have made for WB for example:

Im aware. And again, BVS nearly tripled it's budget in box office receipts worldwide. And that doesn't count any of the other revenue streams studios get a piece of when the movies leave theaters. The movies are profitable. Just not overly so.

Justice Leagues film budget was 300 million. I highly doubt they spent another 400 million promoting the movie. That's just ridiculous. The movies all make money. Just not as much as they hoped.

This could very well be the end of the DCEU.

Lol no way in hell. DC will keep trying and trying.

Eventually, they'll lose enough money that they will have to end it.  They can probably keep afloat for a few more flicks, but it doesn't look good for them.  Both BvS and Justice League were their major tentpole movies and neither one really broke records or anything.

Lose money? How? Batman vs Superman nearly tripled it's gross budget in worldwide sales. Are they matching up with Marvel benchmarks? No. But the movies are still profitable at the end of the day.

Superman is CLEARLY top dog post Justice League. Flash is faster than Superman, but not significantly so. They are in the same "weight class" speed wise. Barry is just a step or two faster. I think Diana is clearly above Aquaman, who is still pretty tough regardless.

Stick still wins. But he would LOVE Frank. Love him.

Just finished 11. That was awesome. It’s a slow burn show but I like it. The secondary actors are good too. Like compare the characters to iron fist? This is like a breath of fresh air
Episode 11 was nuts. When he went for dudes eyes in 12 I had to turn away. Brutal.

Yeah, when Diana tells Batman the story of Steppenwolf she specifically says his mistake was attacking the earth first. This time around he would just go for the mother boxes in surgical strikes.

Superman is clearly a cut above Wonder Woman. Superman has genuine super speed and not speed bursts like some idiots on here kept saying because of how super speed was depicted in man of steel. Superman debuted his freezing breath to freeze Steppenwolf's axe so Diana could shatter it.

Amber Heard's smoking hot rating is over 9000. Positively boneriffic.

Flash is pretty fast it seems, but is super awkward and gets tripped up a lot. Also has none of the esoteric speed force abilities. He is basically run really fast and gives off a ton of electricity man.

Same here as it pertains to Cyborg. Even though I went in with low expectations, Cyborg was actually really good. All of the individual characters were good honestly.

Just saw the movie. It was good, a bit too short. Finally get a properly written Superman. Superman is pretty clearly depicted to be in a League of his own compared to the rest of the team, Wonder Woman included. Definitely gives you the impression that Superman could beat Steppenwolf all on his own. Cyborg cgi was up and down. Aquaman and Flash were great. This movie could have used another half hour of character development. But good movie all in all. 4 out of 5 stars for me.
