- 10-20-14Comics, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

brick 1

Now, this is what it looks like to have some concrete casting information. Oliver Queen will once again be dealing with a rogue’s gallery regular, as longtime adversary Brick gets introduced to live action villainy. For those of us who have no idea who this guy is, Danny Brickwell was a gangster who saw prime opportunity in Star City’s temporary void of underworld bosses. While most of the shady characters around town saw chaos, Danny jumped at the chance to showcase his own brand of order, mostly through drug sale. This storyline took shape after the comic storyline ‘Green Arrow: City Walls’ and established Brick as a real problem for Arrow’s ample quiver of solutions. And bringing him to the small screen is an actor who is used to playing hard-to-kill characters. (more…)

Jason Momoa hasn’t been the most relaxed person when it comes to questions about his casting by Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder as Aquaman over the last couple of months. The Internet is abuzz with stories about his rumored casting and expected appearance in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. Everyone was asking him about it at every turn, and he was denying or deflecting the question so much that the story became more about his reaction to the casting question, than the casting question itself. Here’s a couple of Momoa’s most memorable denials. (more…)

Supreme Court Slams Door on Superman Rights Review

There’s a lot of shame to go around when one looks back at how creators, and the rights to their creations, were treated back when comic books were still a fledgling industry. It gets even more confused when you throw in the truck loads of cash made when these characters started to appear on the big screen. Something that back then, wasn’t really a consideration when these characters were created. Hell, it wasn’t until recently that some creators actually got any compensation or credit for their creation in movie credits. All because the lawyers and purse string monitors didn’t want to accept their shameful role in the whole thing or loss even a percentage of all that wonderful superhero movie money. (more…)

Some may be disappointed that Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic series isn’t getting a proper television series (instead being regulated to a 2-hour movie), but it looks like one of Morpheus’ co-stars is getting to move to the small screen instead. You may remember him from the ‘Season of Mists’ story arc (Sandman issues #21-28), though he has been present within the DC universe in one form or another since as far back as the early 60s. His name is Lucifer and this fallen angel is now the subject of a new pilot being produced for Fox. (more…)

Jesse Eisenberg Talks About Creating a “Real Psychology” For Lex Luthor in ‘Batman v Superman’

There are few things that have ever set the internet on fire like the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman in WB’s upcoming Batman v. Superman.  The ire expressed by millions was almost painful and a true indication of just how attached some fans are to their vision of the characters that mean so much to them.  After Affleck, the announcement of Jesse Eisenberg landing the role of supervillain Lex Luthor was almost lost in the shuffle for many when, really, this was the news that should have affected fans even more than Affleck’s Batman.  However, some recent remarks Eisenberg made to Total Film may give some credibility to Zack Snyder’s vision of the DC Cinematic Universe moving forward.

Is The DC Cinematic Universe Following a “No Joke” Policy?

- 08-27-14Comics, Film Posted by Rush Urbalejo

There is no doubt that there are plenty of differences between the movies that Marvel continues to pump out and the movies that WB/DC continues to give audiences.  One of the biggest differneces, of course, is the tone of these movies.  While Marvel loves to give fans some laughs with their superhero action, DC prefers to keep things a bit darker, and for the most part any laughs that come from the audience are almost ironic in response to what’s going on in the film itself (“Want to see a magic trick?”).  If you follow the comic books released from each of the publishers, you may even believe you understand why. A new rumor, however, may give us a better answer to why the DC Cinematic Universe seems so depressing. (more…)
