Marvel and DC movies tend to get compared a lot because, really, there's no other meaningful point of comparison for cinematic superhero movie universes of this scale. That leads to a lot of ire over perceived bias against DC movies, but for most superhero movie fans, there's nothing we'd like to see more than both of them succeed. That's why it was so disappointing when Justice League was just kind of ... there.Read More

One of the most disheartening points for me in the recent wave of high-profile suspensions and firings of male Hollywood executives and creatives was learning that Andrew Kreisberg, co-creator and Executive Producer on multiple DCTV shows on The CW, including Supergirl, was suspended after a long history of sexually inappropriate behavior. He has now been officially fired.Read More
Welcome to Supergirl Season 3, Episode 8, “Crisis on Earth-X, Part One.”Read More
One of the reasons that we love the Wonder Woman solo film so much, in addition to Patty Jenkins' masterful direction and a damn-near-perfect performance by Gal Gadot, is because it was the first time that moviegoers got a genuinely good film with a female superhero at its center. Now, we have Marvel's Captain Marvel to look forward to, and Kevin Feige has some mixed feelings about that.Read More
Batgirl is a symbol that belongs to everyone, particularly to women, girls, and anyone on the female side of the spectrum who needs a hero in which they can see her/themselves. Joss Whedon isn't the voice we need to be hearing on this right now. Here are five women who could be.Read More

Everything is going according to plan!
Cinematic universes are all the rage right now, despite that Marvel is the only company to have really made one work up to their level of scale and success—and even that has its flaws. Meanwhile, the DC Extended Universe, despite being adapted from its own interconnected comic book universe, has struggled a bit to find the same footing, despite some fairly successful franchise entries. Now, it seems like they're thinking that deviating from the Marvel norm might be the way to go.Read More

The internet had plenty of words for James Cameron's assertion that Wonder Woman was a "step backwards" in terms of representing women in movies, which was printed in a Guardian article yesterday. One of the main things he seems to have overlooked in talking about "male Hollywood doing the same old thing" is that the movie was made by a woman, and she has now added some thoughts of her own to the mix.Read More
Prepare for more "method acting."
There has been a lot of talk about how Suicide Squad left much of its Joker/Harley Quinn material out of both the original theatrical cut and even the eventual extended version, but it seems like Warner Bros. is still determined to build a movie around that relationship. Yes, in addition to the Joker origin movie that left us at least equally bewildered. No, we don't understand why this is happening, either.Read More

Wonder Woman was, by all accounts, a massive hit, which has had us closely following whether or not its director, Patty Jenkins, would return for the sequel that Warner Bros. is suddenly very eager to get off the ground. As you'd expect, that level of success gives Jenkins a powerful negotiation tool, and she's now reportedly close to closing a deal to bring us the next installment in the franchise.Read More
