It also seems like the 45 day window for the theatrical release to come to the service is no longer guaranteed.

re: Max — Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

I had Locked Down and the Witches in my que and now they are gone before I got a chance to watch them

Superintelligence is not a big loss and glad I saw American Pickle


In addition to the last-minute cancelation of the House Party remake, at least six Warner Bros. movies—all "Max Originals"—have been removed from the platform. Among those pulled are sci-fi rom-com Moonshot, Melissa McCarthy-led dystopian comedy Superintelligence, Locked Down, An American Pickle, and Charm City Kings.

Though there's no word if any other Warner Bros. Discovery content will be pulled from the streamer, several exclusive movies remain on HBO Max. These include emotional road comedy Unpregnant starring Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferreira, 2022 Father of the Bride remake with Gloria Estefan, Let Them All Talk, Kimi, The Fallout, No Sudden Move, and 8-Bit Christmas.

Let's revisit this a year from now and see how their financials are going! Deal? Lol...

On the other hand, almost no one gives to shits about Discovery + and that streaming service is hardly known even with the programming that aligns with “anti-woke”.

This is oddly personal, in all the ways mine wasn't. Is this not trolling DVDTalk?

Well you had previously posted this :

Which certainly to me seems like an invitation to guess why you personally liked these slides and the direction HBO Max is headed.

Yeah, if you're going to play it coy like that, you're opening it up for people to assume the worst about you. One could argue it was your post that was the troll, i.e. deliberately trying to provoke angry responses.

Or, you completely alienated all the people who cheered for ZS Justice League, shit on the brand that has already been built and will bleed subscriptions for being incredibly short sighted.

You want to know the secret to why Marvel and Disney are kicking WBs ass? Because they go ALL IN. You think you don’t like Ant-man? Well fuck you…we’re going to make him the key to defeating Thanos. If DC came out swinging…here’s Batgirl, and we are bringing back Michael mother fucking Keaton as Batman, and this is going to tie into The Flash movie…now they look like the most wimpy, milktoast company being run by a bean counter instead of a creative force.

re: Max — Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

Despite all this Batgirl/Flash turmoil, I'll still take Zaslav's Warner Bros. over Chapek's Disney. At least there's the potential with Zaslav that we could get fresh, new IP in some Warner Bros. films. All Disney cares about is more of the same.

re: Max — Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

I did notice another program that was dropped from HBO Max recently.

https://www.tntdrama.com/shows/rich-shameless

Rich and Shameless. It was a documentary series about various celebrities who pissed away their careers and fortunes and some leading to tragedy.

I watched 2 of the episodes, One was about Girls gone Wild and the other was about the mystery death of former NBA star Bison Dele. They were both excellent. But now HBO Max dropped it like it did with other TNT and TBS content.

I think I was able to catch most of the available episodes. I thought it was fun to watch.

Black Canary HBO Max movie is not dead



But, DC's Strange Adventures is.


If you're wondering why Kevin Smith is in the thumbnail, he was suppose to direct and co-write an episode.

It’s too early to kill it. They need to wait until filming is complete.

For those who forgot, Pennyworth will finally debut its third season this October. So at least it made it that far.

Yeah, with a new name, because Zaslav thinks we're all idiots.

BOOM! Thank you. Don't get me wrong, I'll always believe DC/Warner had more balls to do shit Disney/Marvel would never do even at risk of failure. But Disney/Marvel has taken some cool risks with Guardians etc. But this new Warner thing feels like it's going back to "SAFE". That's both good and bad.

It's like how Star Trek Discovery tried new things and people hated it, so they went to Strange New Worlds which, while a great series, it still just rehashes TOS stuff and plays it safe so as not to offend Old Trekkies.

There is a small mention here that Titans and Doom Patrol are on the chopping block.

I know Doom Patrol is currently filming its 4th season.

Ah, found out what Black Canary is. She’s just a Birds of Prey character? Any relevance in her having her own show?

re: Max — Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service

Titans would be no big loss (and I love the characters, just the show has done nothing with them), but Doom Patrol is the kind of out there, not-stepping-on-anyone's-toes kind of show that you'd think wouldn't interfere with any theatrical plans or anything. Didn't Gunn just reveal he had like a few shows in the works other than Peacemaker? I wonder how many of those are dead.

Black Canary was on Smallville, Arrow and Birds of Prey.
