Kids, if you aren't in this thread to participate in the premise, why are you here? I get it. I want the film to be good to. But let's look at comic movies. The ones that work best are ones that balance embracing the source material while using the medium of film to tell stories only a film can. Not some joyless slog that takes the material too seriously. A DnD film that plays the material completely straight and serious is the surest way for it to be dull. See the most recent Mortal Kombat attempt. And yet, that too had fan service. ALL fandom films will have fan service. I saw the first DnD film. In Theatres. It was terrible. But at least I got to mark out a bit at the nods to the game I love.
