At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con fans of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) thought they were just going to get the standard Hall H Panel for the upcoming Justice League film. Hopefully, the stars of the upcoming film would come out and boast about how great it will be, perhaps see a few pictures of the cast in action. Little did they know that they would actually get to see a trailer for the film a full year before it was released? Based on fans reactions, it looks like DC is moving in the right direction. The film had a much lighter tone than previous DCEU films and we got to see everyone (except Superman of course).
But with the Internet being the Internet, something weird had to come out of it. Enter Aldo Jones. Jones is a YouTube personality who does crazy editing for the trailers of mainly superhero films and strikes comedy gold out of them. The videos don’t have to make any sense, but they are funny as hell. Jones decided to give the new Justice League trailer a try. (more…)
Well, that came out of left field. Unless Ben Affleck got hacked, he just posted a video to his official twitter that will have fan boys and girls gleefully geeking out across the Internet. What could cause such an uproar? Hopefully this isn’t a hack or prank because Affleck just posted a video of Deathstroke, one of the coolest villains in the DC multi-verse. Check out the tweet and video below. (more…)
For those that haven’t seen actor Henry Cavill outside his movie roles, in Interviews, he is a charming, well-spoken, good-hearted, and very humorous. Natural behavior that has been purposely turned off, either by choice or direction, in his portrayal of Superman in Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Fans have criticized at how moody and depressing this new version of the character is, void of the high sense of morality and model of goodness that the character is known for. It would seem had Snyder just let Cavill act more like himself, then fans would have a better represented Superman. However, the thing about the current Superman many seem to be missing is that we are being told a story that is showing us a journey of Superman – to the Superman fans know and love. That sincere morality and good-heartedness, we’re working towards it.
With Superman set to return in Justice League, after a brief bought with death in the aftermath of BvS, will Supes come back the more wholesome, salt of the earth, man of morality that fans have been invested in seeing?
Hard to say…. but thanks, to new production photos from the set of Justice League, Superman will at least look more the part. (more…)
Remember that time Superman died by the hands of Doomsday in the 90s event comic called “The Death of Superman“? Remember how the only two things to come out of that comic, were the lame Superman death armbands (so that every geek could show solidarity) and how later, Superman would come back to life (like Superman was ever going to stay dead) in the “Reign of Superman” follow-up, thusly and quickly rendering the former comic utterly worthless? Can’t say much about the death armband (though it does make for a “super” bookmark) or the Death of Superman comic, which again is now about as valuable and useful as a roll of toilet paper. However, the return of Superman did bring Superman back in a big bad way. He came back dressed in all in black and a sported a serious mullet. Yes, for a good portion of the 90s, Superman looked like Johnny Cash and WWF’s Razor Ramon, and it was good.
What’s with the trip down Death of Superman memory lane? Well, as you may recall, Zach Snyder shoved the whole Doomsday killeth Superman at the end of Batman V Superman. Much like the “Come on DC, like you have us fooled” doubt that swept the 90’s, do you really think Superman is gonna stay 6 feet under – like he’s not going to make a triumphant return in Justice League? Question is, will he come back the same blue suited boy scout, or will he back “cue the ACDC music* “Back in Black”, like in the comic?
According to Superman himself, Henry Cavill, he just might! (more…)
What would you expect to happen? He rocks out is what happens! Jason Momoa in full Aquaman Battle Armor, yes what we’ve seen Aquaman wearing so far must have been Aquaman’s casual wear because this new heavy-duty suit is rocking. If that wasn’t enough Momoa brought his axe to the party. (more…)
Matt Ryan stole the hearts of comic fans with his portrayal of John Constantine, from the show Constantine NBC aired in 2014. The series, which was based on the Hellblazer comics, saw John and his cohorts battling the evils of ‘the Rising Darkness’, protecting the innocent from the paranormal, occult, and that which goes bump in the night. While the show was well received by fans of the comics and of superhero shows, it was cancelled after one season due to not making the numbers NBC has come to expect from their shows; fans, however, were adamant that the character return as played by Matt Ryan. There were petitions, hashtag campaigns, and even Stephen Amell of Arrow made a push (resulting in Constantine guest starring on an episode of the green archer’s show). Now CW has picked up the rights to the show (along with Supergirl from CBS)—though if they will revive it remains to be seen. While we wait for more news on the hopeful revival of the show in some capacity, we have a nice adventure to fill in the gap: the new, animated version of Justice League Dark. (more…)
You’ve seen the Wonder Woman trailer, but the next item up for bids was a full-blown teaser trailer for the next film in the DC Extended Universe: Justice League. Fans in Hall H a little while ago went wild when director Zack Snyder showed the footage, and that’s in spite of the misgivings many of those people might have about his last cinematic endeavor. Now you may be kicking yourself because you’re not in San Diego, but don’t worry. Having learned from the mistakes of last year’s Suicide Squad leak, Warner Bros. has released on social media the complete tease for you homebodies to enjoy from the comfort of afar. (more…)
After J.K. Simmons‘ Oscar-winning performance in Whiplash, there should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that portraying a “badass” is right in his wheelhouse. However, it seems people are having a hard time connecting that term with his current role of Commissioner Jim Gordon in DC‘s new Justice League movie. Photos of Simmons going into beast mode at the gym posted by his personal trainer had fans assuming that he was merely prepping for the role, but Simmons has a different story. While in a new interview he says he does want to show “a little bit more of that badass side,” the 61 year old actor reveals his prime motivation for his workouts is really just to take care of himself.
