Yeah, but it's NOT a continuation of the DCEU. Give us a break, Gunn. You're full of shit.

@UniqNo -
@Superspecialawesomeguy - I feel Gunn needed to do a complete reboot in order to not doom his endeavors. I take it you disagree?

@GaruVonDoom - I think if his Superman film fails none of the other stuff will matter.

@Lisa89 - I mean...outside of the last few moments of JL, I'm assuming the Snyder cut (I repressed the original), I don't know that there was a reason I really wanted it to continue personally.

Lisa89 - 5/10/2024, 1:23 PM
@The1st - Exactly. Gunn needed to do a complete and total reboot. Not the pick and choose buffet he's unleashing on us.

@Lisa89 - I disagree. Specifically because outside of the appearance of Aquaman and The Flash in S2 of Peacemaker, there's nothing that directly ties it ball and chain to the DCEU. His "The Suicide Squad" was a soft reboot anyway, and keeping casting across reboots/multiverses is not unheard of (Judi Dench in 007, JK Simmons in Spider-Man). His only real dishonesty is in claiming that "The Suicide Squad" and Peacemaker S1 aren't in continuity with his new DCU. And it's literally only because of that one moment. Otherwise, you can just assume that those two things are the "real" start of the DCU. Even Nathan Fillion playing TDK isn't a big deal because actors play multiple characters all the time.

Yeah, but I liked the first season way more than I thought I would so I will give Gunn a break.

Sweet , Grillo is great!!

It’s weird that him and Kinnaman are meant to be father & son since they are only 14 years apart (probably hence they will age him up a bit to match his animated counterpart).

It makes sense to bring in SR since last season , Peacemaker came to regret killing Flag and were the catalyst in a way for his redemption to an extent so to have the dad coming in for revenge presumably after Chris has somewhat changed could make for an interesting story.

Anyway , S1 was solid so looking forward to this!!.

So Flag Sr. is immortal? Or at least very slow aging? Because you cannot convince me that Grillo is a believable dad to Kinnaman without powers involved!

He’s gonna have a lot of old man strength.

Man , what a turnaround it was for Rick Flag Jr…

Went from being this bland character in SS to an actually likable one in TSS.

MisterDoctor217 - 5/10/2024, 12:57 PM
Shouldn’t they get a slightly older actor?

Joel Kinnaman is 44, Grillo is 58.

I don’t see them as Father and son lol
Grillo looks good for his age.

I imagine Rick Flag Sr as someone more worn down and rugged.

Like maybe Kurt Russel ?
Idk but Grillo looks too young to be Joel’s son lol

@MisterDoctor217 - Rick Flagg Sr. got busy when he was 14? Lol

...so I guess that means the DCEU films are being treated as schrodinger's cat, but in a broad strokes "similar events happened, but the details were different" sense?
EgoEgor
EgoEgor - 5/10/2024, 1:03 PM
@asherman93 - "everything is completely different but somethings are the same" --James Gunn, pretty much.

This shit is just confusing.

@EgoEgor - I don't mind it. The MCU is apparently dabbling in it now w/Netflix characters, and hopefully AOS ones down the line. I've never found it to be confusing. The part that was confusing was all the conflicting reports from studios and actors prior to this new DCU taking shape. If they're smart they're market the DCU as being a complete universe, with all characters in house to provide true adaptations, but I'll reserve judgement on that til I see what the end result. The plans for the DCU make me think JL/JLU and YJ in terms of universe and scope and I hope they stick the landing. I love the MCU for it's role in what is essentially now the golden age of cbms, but it's never been a complete universe do the Marvels history of financial woes resulting in everything be divvied up amongst the different studios. I'm not the biggest fan of MCU Spidey, but it set a precedent that studios can work together if they really want to on some level. I'd like to see that extend to other genres as well.

So The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker season 1 are canon now? How is anyone supposed to follow this?
GhostDog
GhostDog - 5/10/2024, 2:01 PM
@massdeath - I feel like Gunn wants to be greedy and a little selfish. He got a job with DC before he took over and created content that he now wants to carry over when there’s an argument that he just should’ve rebooted everything when he’s mostly rebooting it all EXCEPT for his DCEU content.
roboticJohnson
roboticJohnson - 5/10/2024, 2:06 PM
@massdeath - basically, I think it's similar to what they did with pattinson's Batman or holland's spider-man. We never saw their origin stories, the waynes getting shot, the training across the world, the spider bite, uncle ben's death, but we know they happened just like they did in previous iterations of the characters. Similarly, the dcu peacemaker killed rick flagg, fought off an alien invasion with the task force x team, and killed his father. Identical "origin stories", if you will.

I know , a novel concept lol

@Lisa89 - I'm sure the last time you rebuilt an entire cinematic universe it went much more smoothly
THEDARKKNIGHT1939
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 5/10/2024, 2:20 PM
Out for revenge because Peacemaker killed his son, the same son who is linked to Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, who is linked to Ben Affleck's Batman, who is linked to Henry Cavill's Superman... but Superman in this universe is David Corenswet? And Batman isn't Ben Affleck?

Also, Frank Grillo is 58 and Joel Kinnaman is 44. Damn, Rick Flag Sr. got busy when he was just 14.

Shitshow
McMurdo
McMurdo - 5/10/2024, 11:13 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - only TSS and Peace S1 are canon. So that Harley isn't the DCEU Harley despite looking identical to said Harley (minus aesthetic tattoo changes which actually fit this narrative). It's not hard to follow. Keep up.

WarMonkey - 5/11/2024, 8:16 AM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - This is somewhat confusing for me. I think I might understand but I'm not 100% at all sure I'm right. I have no idea how I would explain this new, but not really new cause it has all different characters but some are the same, universe Gunn's creating to someone like my normie brothers.

The real question is will Frank Grillo embarass himself and his family in the opening dance credits....
