The Power of Wonder Woman

WONDER WOMANMINOR SPOILERS

It’s safe to say that WB’s long-awaited Wonder Woman is a massive success. Having raked in just over 100 million dollars and earned a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s easily the film DC fans wanted Batman V Superman to be. But Wonder Woman isn’t just a success for studios, fans of the character, or female audiences, directors, and creators. It’s also a success for diversity as a whole. Read the rest of this entry

Movie Review: Wonder Woman!

14883647_561931980643670_384850897829389102_oWonder Woman (2017)

Starring: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielson, Danny Houston, Robin Wright

Directed By: Patty Jenkins

At long last, Wonder Woman has her very own movie. While her live action cinematic debut hit in last years’ Batman V Superman, the Amazon Warrior has never starred in her very own movie until now. But now in her 75th year as one of pop culture’s icons, Wonder Woman has finally arrived. There’s already an enormous amount of pressure on director Patty Jenkins already (this is THE major female superhero after all). But when you take into account the lackluster reactions to Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman NEEDS to be a success. Read the rest of this entry

A League United

17349762_1337611299666014_1321506846992253218_oAfter months of nervous anticipation, we finally have our look at Warner Bros’ Justice League, a film that would’ve had a ton of criticism heaped upon it regardless of how Batman V Superman or Suicide Squad were received. By not going the Marvel route and introducing the rest of their superheroes as a team instead of in their own solo movies, Warner Bros is playing a risky gamble. Not only that, but they’ve also had some pretty public shake ups since the release of Batman V Superman, namely in the restructuring of DC Entertainment, which put DC writing superstar Geoff Johns into the co-chair seat. With a lot of the movie going (and comic reading public) hoping for a little more hope in their DC movies, all eyes were on this trailer to give us a taste of what to expect this November.  Now that it’s hit, what’s the prognosis?

Looking Ahead To 2017!

27046534534059ff73a97ojpg-bf6797_765wWell, we made it. 2016 is now in the rearview mirror, and it’s full steam ahead to 2017. While this year will still feature some trying times for some of us, at least there will be plenty of things to distract us from reality. In fact, you might think that there’s TOO much stuff to distract us coming in 2017. Luckily for you, I’ve got my most anticipated things coming our way in 2017 to help you figure what you should really get excited for! Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: Lake of Fire and Wonder Woman!

COMIC REVIEWS!!!

lake-of-fire-issue-1Lake of Fire #1 (Image Comics)

Once again, Image Comics has been putting out a seemingly endless stream of new first issues. Thanks to their new Image Plus magazine, there’s less of a risk involved in plunking down your hard earned cash if you’re curious about checking a new series out. While I’m always hesitant to throw yet another new comic onto my already bursting pull list, when I heard the pitch for Nathan Fairbairn and Matt Smith’s Lake of Fire, I knew I was in: Crusade era knights vs. Aliens! How could I say no? Read the rest of this entry

SDCC 2016 Wrap-Up!

downloadAnother San Diego Comic Con has come and gone, and even though I wasn’t there, I sure felt like I was, though that’s probably due to the insurmountable amount of time I spent scouring sites for any bit of information I could. From WB’s upcoming DC movies to Marvel announcing the actress that’s bringing Captain Marvel to life, there was a lot of cool news that came out of this year’s massive convention. So, let’s take a look at some of my favorite announcements! Read the rest of this entry

The Rebirth is Upon Us…

STL007326-600x923At Saturday’s Wonder Con panel, DC Comics unveiled the creative teams behind their upcoming “DC Rebirth” event, the line-wide relaunch that will help put DC’s universe back on the right path. Like with any relaunch, there’s a lot of cool stuff, and some disappointments (*COUGH* Scott Lobdell). But let’s not focus on the bad. Instead, let’s take a look at some of the titles that I’m most looking forward to in the relaunch. Read the rest of this entry

SPOILERS

Three years. Three years of casting rumors, movie announcements, news of the studio being afraid of the finished project, and of fans wondering if Warner Bros could pull off their own cinematic universe based on the characters in DC comics. It’s been a long road, but we’re finally here. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has been released, and with it, the DC Cinematic Universe has begun. Read the rest of this entry

Batman V Superman: Civil War

ImageWell, it’s certainly been a pretty busy two weeks, hasn’t it? With the Captain America: Civil War trailer and the latest Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, we’ve had plenty of nerdy cinematic goodness to feast on. Naturally though, we nerds have to decide which trailer was better. Hitting just a week apart (and both premiering on Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel), and featuring two major superheroes battling, it’s almost impossible not to compare Civil War and Batman V Superman’s latest sneak peaks. Right now, it seems like Civil War has the upper hand, but why is that, exactly? Read the rest of this entry
