Is Aquaman DC’s Black Panther? Not Really.

WB/DC seems to have listened to fans after Batman v Superman about the DCEU’s dark and dour atmosphere and messages. As Man Of Steel veered away from Clark Kent and closer to Kal-El, less Man and more Super, the film turned off a lot of average movies goers, especially those who were looking for a similar vibe to the Marvel Studios movies. But are they going too far towards Marvel with their next release Aquaman? Fans see a few similarities between Aquaman and Marvel Studios’ Black Panther. Can we tell how similar the movies are before one is released? And will they be similar enough to hurt Aquaman‘s tickets sales?

Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ Finds Its Black Manta

Since the earliest ideas about the upcoming Aquaman movie has far surpassed the expectations that anyone had of the submarine superhero.

Usually, this NerdBastard doesn’t really care if series are rebooted or not, but in this case, why won’t the studio just let The Crow franchise rest in peace? There’s been news of a reboot/re-imagining or whatever the heck it is they do these days in Hollywood with old material, but every time, just like Ghostbusters III, all that smoke just disappears once those final embers burn out.

That’s the scuttlebutt today, which suggests that the almost 10-year journey on the part of Relativity Media to reboot the 1994 cult classic seems to have now bore fruit with an expected start date just a few months hence. It’s been stop and go, stop and go for The Crow remake, with various stars and directors all coming onboard at various points depending on which way the wind blows. Many suspected that the nearly 25-year-old Alex Proyas film was cursed, but now it looks like this Crow is about to break free from development hell. (more…)
