See. I told you that Superman can't shave without Kryptonite razors.

Nah. He always used a mirror to redirect his heat vision to crisp off his stubble.

Ugh, still to soon for Superman to comeback after being dead. It's what people crap on about Marvel heroes but DC is getting a free ride on.

No MCU characters have died and then returned.

Captain America? Bucky Barnes? Jean Grey? Professor X? They have all "died" in the movies and come back.

In the comics, that list is as long as Mr. Fantastic and his most stretchiest.

Those were implied deaths. Cap's body wasn't recovered for decades. He was assumed dead, as was Bucky, who was subsequently abducted and morphed into a killer.

Professor X died in the original trilogy, but after the events of DoFP, it's no longer canon. It was undone. The same goes for Jean and Scott.

Superman, OTOH, was literally f-ed up right in front of everybody, and put in a box. No time travel or reboot on the horizon.

Heck, the MCU couldn't even kill Rhodes, and after that fall, he should be D-E-A-D dead!

Doug Liman to Direct 'Justice League Dark' for Warner Bros.

Liman is no longer directing 'X-Men' spinoff 'Gambit.'

Warner Bros is continuing to explore other corners of the DC Universe beyond the core heroes such as Superman and Batman, this time putting the spotlight on its supernatural heroes.

The studio is tapping Doug Liman to direct Justice League Dark, breathing new life in its supernatural adventure project.

Dark was a fairly recent DC title that grouped together heroes such as John Constantine (who was the title character of a solo 2005 movie that starred Keanu Reeves), Deadman, Shade the Changing Man, Zatanna and Swamp Thing (who has his own Wes Craven-directed pic in 1982), among others.

The project was in development for several years as a directing vehicle for del Toro, a master of the macabre who tastes seemingly lined up with the material.

Liman’s boarding signals a tonal shift for the project.

Liman is known for his kinetic and propulsive action movie sensibilities thanks to his hits such as The Bourne Identity and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. He worked with Warners on 2014’s Edge of Tomorrow, the well-reviewed and well-regarded sci-fi time travel movie that starred Tom Cruise.

Liman is shaking it up with his next several movies, which include American Made, a 1980s drug cartel crime drama that reteams him with Cruise, and The Wall, a low-budget contained sniper drama for Amazon Studios.

Michael Gilio is writing the script for Dark. Del Toro is no longer invovled but Scott Rudin is now a producer on it.

Meh. Granted, I have not read those comics, but it seems gimmicky to me.

Marvel can counter with a West Coast Avengers movie. Followed by DC's Justice Society of East Asia (to cash in on the Asian market). Followed by Marvel's Ultimate Rocky Mountain Avengers. Budweiser can rename the beer for a month.

I didn't realize they were supposed to. I like that Warner-DC is following a different path. (You know, how everyone insisted they were "copying" Marvel by finally putting more characters onscreen.)

West Coast Avengers was a really cheesy book, too. Btw, how was Civil War not gimmicky? Don't bother answering. We know it was.
