Toxicity in fandom isn’t limited to Star Wars. Every franchise has its trolls that people don’t like to talk about. Don’t feed them, don’t give them attention, and they’ll eventually go away. Unfortunately, even a bit of bad attention is enough for folks to thrive on. Fans are passionate, and when fans are passionate in equal but different ways, the fandom splits and near-war breaks out.

Superman, and The Justice League have definitely not met studio (or fan) expectations.  Each Marvel film seems to have a bigger following than previous films while DC films seem to get more complaints.  The discussion on Marvel films is the meaning and characters, while discussion of DC films is about their failures.  But one area that DC has not only done well but has full saturation is TV.  There are many live-action DC shows on TV now with more on the way.   (more…)

DC’s Shazam Costume Revealed

DC’s Captain Marvel, alter ego of teenager Billy Batson, is the star of the Shazam comics and one of the original BIG superheroes. With that in mind, it’s fair to say, the comic’s fans are eagerly awaiting any information they can get about the forthcoming movie – which will be another in DC’s expanded cinematic universe.

We’ve seen countless iterations of Batman’s greatest rogue, The Joker. We’ve seen Jack Nicholson in Tim Burton’s Batman, Heath Ledger in the Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, and recently Jared Leto in Suicide Squad (and the upcoming Gotham City Sirens movie). Of course, there’s the OG from the Adam West series, Caesar Romero and countless voice actors for various DC animated movies (Mark Hamill remains king though!). The Joker is without a doubt one of the most fascinating characters throughout comic book history. However, we really haven’t learned much of his origin or his history. Until now…
