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 idea of Wonder Woman not being heterosexual is not new, especially in recent years, with writer Greg Rucka confirming 100% that the Amazons of Themyscira have same sex relationships in the comics, but it's also not something Warner Bros. allowed her theatrical debut to really get into. That's not exactly surprising, but that doesn't make it less disappointing, and fans are trying to get something done about it.Read More
According to reports, Warner Bros./DC held a special early screening of Justice League for a lucky few. However, approach any eyewitness reactions you see on social media with a skeptically raised Spock eyebrow.Read More
There’s a chill in the air. The wind is picking up. You’re ready to get your favorite sweater out at last. That’s right, it’s finally fall! After a long and very (VERY) hot summer, the days are getting shorter and it’s time to get in the mood for the season. And what better way than some movies and television that ate the pop culture equivalent of curling up something spicy and warm on a rainy day.Read More
I can’t fault the decision to truncate the story, but saving the adult half of It's storyline for later alters the tone of the narrative in fundamental ways that have mostly gone unaddressed.Read More
Patty Jenkins has officially signed on to take the helm of the Wonder Woman sequel. IT'S ALL HAPPENING. IT'S. ALL. HAPPENING!!!Read More
OF ALL TIME.
Merciful Minerva! Our lady Diana can't be stopped: with a domestic box office now over $409 million, Wonder Woman's haul is has left every other superhero movie biting her dust save four.Read More
I was a huge fan of the William Golding YA classic Lord of the Flies when I was a kid. Though it was about boys, I could easily see how girls wouldn't fare much better in that island situation. Yet, both the execution of, and the backlash to an upcoming film adaptation of the classic novel has me a bit befuddled.Read More
Play this cute It game they said. It'll be fun, they said.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
You may have noticed that I'm a huge fan of The CW's Supergirl. So, trust me when I tell you that, as a fan, Supergirl Season 2 on Blu-ray, available now, is a totally worthwhile investment.Read More
I Don’t Know Anymore, Man: DC and Warner Bros. Working on “Gritty, 80s Crime Drama” Joker Origin Movie
Did you ask for this? I didn't ask for this.
DC and Warner Bros. just announced that they're looking to develop a movie based on the Joker, diving into the villain's origins and backstory.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
There's a whole lotta Diana and some warring Amazons in the latest Justice League sneak peak. I'm liking your priorities, DC.Read More
Batfleck no more!
Well that was over quickly. For all the furor over the "Batfleck" in the first place, it seems that Ben Affleck isn't going to be in the role of the caped crusader much longer. That probably has those who were never thrilled with the idea in the first place feeling pretty relieved, but what does it mean for the future of Batman in the DCEU?Read More
Ever since details about Wonder Woman 2 started to leak out, I haven't been able to think about much else, and I keep wondering what this new era will mean for Diana and Co. Talk to me.Read More
Get on it, Zeus.
Wonder Woman is still going strong in theaters, having just surpassed Deadpool at the domestic box office (with a fitting note of congratulations), and that success is already moving things forward on the sequel. We spent weeks not knowing whether Director Patty Jenkins would return (and we still don't), but now we've at least heard something about the sequel, and we're pretty excited abou it.Read More
There are many, many things to like about Wonder Woman—so many that we're still talking about it weeks after the movie's debut.Read More
