Better, I hope...
Probably about the same. The movie is a wide release, they won't give the comic much consideration. If there is something they want to do that will conflict with the comic, they'll do it and not give it a second thought. If anything, from a continuity standpoint it might even be a worse transition. The first Countdown comics were a marketing tactic tied to the film.
