Yeah, it looked like he disintegrated, but a space portal did seem to open up in the ship. I'm holding out hope that he was teleported somewhere and we'll see him again soon...

The bigger question would be if Hugo Weaving would come back or not? If he's not under contract still I suspect he's done with Marvel!

He's not under contract I think, but he's changed his tune from not being interested a couple years back to not closing the door.

"With Marvel, it’s pretty basic stuff: accept the deal and enjoy the ride. It’s not a major stretch for an actor, but on the other hand the difficulty with the Marvel universe is maintaining a link to a human dimension within such an extraordinary, technological CGI universe. In terms of me going back and doing another one, I don’t know. I’m not sure what they’re up to with the Red Skull."

SOOOOO I know this isn't Marvel related, but what is up with DC changing the actors up for different movies now, and making them non canon to each other? That seems like a really odd decision seeing as how DC films have struggled and it is a path that has worked really well for Marvel so far.

My running theory is that the Justice League movie must be pretty bad, even to the WB execs, if they're trying to establish big superhero movie stuff that's not connected, directly or indirectly, to the DCEU. Oof.

Think they are trying so hard not to be like Marvel, they are only hurting themselves. And they thought they could remake the Nolan movies for every character.

Guess I was hoping for something similar to Marvel happening with DC, same actors across multiple films and keeping the larger story lines and themes consistent. :roll:

The fact that they never wanted to incorporate their existing TV series' worlds into their movie world always seemed odd to me anyway.

Nah, it cuts for both Marvel and DC in that incorporating TV into the movie storylines is just really hard beyond Easter eggs. Even stuff that functioned in its own inherent universe like Star Wars, you'll get very little in the way of fully incorporating non-movie canon stuff like the comics of cartoons. Mainstream audiences that keep up with films don't necessarily keep up with ALL the stuff happening in tv, to say nothing of scheduling being a whole other thing.

True. Just seemed to me that something like The Flash was so well-received that it was odd to not lean on it when doing the JL. What world needs 2 Flashes?

Agreed.

What the world needs is 2 Jokers. Duh.

I get not mixing the TV and Cinematic worlds, but I think that they should keep the actors consistent within each.
