Aquaman – Extended Trailer

I’ve got to admit, this one sold me. I’ve been ambivalent about an Aquaman movie every since that ridiculous footage from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. And while the snow-globe opening of this trailer is a bit of a cliche (for some reason Citizen Kane popped into my head though I’m sure that wasn’t […]

The Joke(r)’s On You

You might have heard that Warner Bros is making a movie based on Batman’s arch nemesis, the Joker. Now here’s the punch line: This version of the Joker exists entirely outside of DC continuity! Now keep in mind the DCEU (the DC Cinematic Universe) has a version of the Joker, and he was introduced in […]

Sun Sets on Cavill’s Superman?

Apparently, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Henry Cavill is out as Superman. There are quite a few reasons stated (scheduling issues, problems negotiating a cameo in Warner Bros upcoming Shazam!, delays in ramping up a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel, etc) and while–if this is true because it bears repeating that this is not […]

Shazam-Not-Wow

We’ve finally–via Entertainment Weekly–got an officially-sanctioned image of Zachary Levi in his Shazam costume.

The greatest problems is the (fake) muscularity of his chest and biceps and questions or proportionality. What we’ve […]

Does DC Stand For ‘Damn Clueless!?’

Actually that’s ‘Detective Comics’ but based on some of their current decisions you’d be perfectly justified if you were slightly confused. For instance, DC Films is reportedly developing two movies based on the Joker. One’s based on Jared Leto’s interpretation of the iconic Batman villain from Suicide Squad and the other…not so much (though reportedly […]

Black Manta or Black Man-Duh

I understand the moviemakers sometimes have to sacrifice accuracy for realism when producing something based on a comic book because what looks good in a drawing doesn’t always translate well to real life (which is why we’re likely to NEVER see a comic-accurate Scarlet Witch in the Avengers movies). That being said, the goal should […]

You Can’t Be Missed If You Won’t Go Away

I just read an article about how Zach Snyder’s plans for the DCEU were supposedly so “epic, grand, emotional, joyful and unforgettable” which bothers me more than a little bit because we’re hearing more about Snyder’s plans for this and intentions for that now than when Justice League was actually in theaters. As I have […]
