    Sure sounded like an endorsement to me. Seemed like she was arguing pretty strongly in favor of it being a good thing.

    • Helping someone not to feel embarrassed isn't the same thing as if she had encouraged Alex to do this in the first place. There was no "you never know who you might meet at a wedding" with a wink. There wasn't a message of "you should do this again."

      Also, I have a hard time thinking that Supergirl or Superman would have a problem with two consenting adults hooking up.

It was OK, but I have to admit that I'm old-fashioned enough to find it jarring when a character like Supergirl is promoting the message that there is nothing wrong with having a one-night stand with somebody you just met. Not that I expected her to get all judgmental at her sister, but she seemed to be actively encouraging that kind of behavior, seemingly saying that having fun is all that really matters.

        I know that's a popular belief these days, but I kind of expect characters like Superman or Supergirl to be a little more..."square" I guess. Like I said, I don't expect them to get all judge-y, but to have her actually cheering on that sort of thing seems like going a bit far in the other direction.

        I've noticed that both Flash and Supergirl have taken more mature turns this season. We recently saw the male members of Team Flash go to a strip club where Barry got plastered. Now we've seen Alex have a one-night stand due to her binge-drinking problem. I'm glad that my 9-year-old has seemingly lost interest in these shows because the writing no longer seems appropriate for elementary school kids.

          Guess we saw the message differently. She may not have encouraged her to do it in the first place, but she sure seemed to me to be at LEAST implying that doing it again would be a good thing so long as it was fun.

          I guess I still see Superman (and by extension Supergirl) as being old-fashioned enough to think that casual, meaningless sex with somebody you just met isn't a good idea, even if they wouldn't actually berate anybody about it.

              It's easy to understand WB's reasoning with that many people telling the same story. Yikes.

                    • Variety: DC Shake-Up in the Works After ‘Justice League’ Stumbles
                      Warner Bros. is planning a shake-up and restructuring of its DC films operation following the box office disappointment of “Justice League,” Variety has learned.

                      Jon Berg will be leaving his current job running the comic book’s film production division, according to several sources with knowledge of the studio’s plans.
                      A search is underway for his replacement, these people say. Berg will instead become a production partner with Roy Lee, the producer of “The Lego Movie” and “It,” who has a deal on the lot.

                      “This is something that Jon approached me about six months ago, and he expressed his goal was to ultimately be a producer at the studio,” Warner Bros. Picture Group President Toby Emmerich said in a statement to Variety. “I first met Jon when, as a producer, he brought ‘Elf’ to New Line, which remains one of the best and most evergreen titles in the library. We’re thrilled that Jon is partnering with Roy and anticipate their company being a valuable source of movies for Warner Bros. and New Line.”

                      Warners is expected to name a new person to run point on DC’s films. Geoff Johns, who has partnered with Berg on much of the creative direction of the movies, is expected to continue serving as DC Entertainment’s chief creative officer. Johns, who reports to DC president Diane Nelson, works in areas such as television (and has written various episodes for DC inspired shows), publishing, and consumer products, in addition to his contributions to the films. Going forward, his contributions to the films may evolve, and could be more advisory in nature.

                      These people also say that Emmerich is weighing the idea of further integrating DC’s film operations into the studio’s main movie arm. That would entail putting the divisions under the same roof rather than having DC remain in a separate building on the lot, sources say. Marvel, which is owned by Disney, does operate its comic book film division autonomously, but other studios, such as Fox and Sony, produce their superhero films under the studio’s banner.

                      The DC overhaul is expected to happen by January.

                      Warner Bros.’ corporate leaders at Time Warner support the moves and are said to be unhappy with the financial performance of “Justice League.” The film was intended to be DC’s answer to Marvel’s “Avengers,” uniting the likes of Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman under the banner of a team of world-saving superheroes. With a budget reported to be as high as $300 million, it represents an expensive bet. After three weeks of release, it has managed to gross $570.3 million worldwide. In contrast, the first “Avengers” film racked up $1.5 billion. The studio did have a number of successes this year with “Wonder Woman,” “Dunkirk,” and “It,” which has helped offset the disappointment of “Justice League.”

                      Berg and Johns were intimately involved in the production. Berg essentially decamped for the film’s London set, and both men have full producer credits on the picture, which would likely not be the case on future movies. “Justice League” suffered from a difficult birth. An early version, directed by Zack Snyder, alarmed studio executives with its dark tone. That had been the knock on Snyder’s two previous DC films, “Man of Steel” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” After his daughter committed suicide, Snyder eventually left the production before it underwent costly re-shoots. Joss Whedon, who had been brought on the punch up the dialogue, took over directing, but studio brass recognized that so much footage had been shot already that there were limits to what could be done to improve the picture. Studio executives recognized early on that Snyder’s decision to have Steppenwolf, a god-like, all-CGI creation, as the principal antagonist was faulty. In fact, many reviews were particularly harsh about Steppenwolf, criticizing the character for being one-note and the product of unconvincing visual effects.

                      There are no immediate plans for Snyder to direct another DC movie, though he is producing or executive producing several, including “Wonder Woman 2” and “Aquaman.” Warner Bros. does continue to have a production deal with Snyder, so it’s possible he could direct additional films for the studio. Time Warner is said to be frustrated that Warner Bros. leaders continued to bring the director back, especially after “Batman v Superman” was excoriated by critics even though it made money. They are also upset that each new DC film seems to be making less money than the one that proceeded it. Only “Wonder Woman,” with its optimistic heroine, managed to be both a critical and a big commercial success.

                      While Ben Affleck is expected to appear as Batman in a standalone Flash movie, it is highly unlikely he will don the cape and cowl in Matt Reeves’ planned standalone Batman movie. The director is said to want to cast the role with fresh talent, according to sources.


                      Warner Bros. does believe that “Justice League” succeeded in one importantly respect: it effectively introduced Flash (a quippy speedster played by Ezra Miller) and Aquaman (the king of Atlantis, portrayed by Jason Momoa). A solo “Aquaman” is due out in 2018 and Warners is still developing a standalone Flash adventure. Going forward, Warner Bros. is planning a sequel to “Wonder Woman” that’s believed to be set in the Cold War, and New Line has greenlit a “Shazam” feature.
