DC Comics came into WonderCon Anaheim strong, throwing out many updates for DC Universe. The streaming app had some disappointments for fans as far as the peripheral features went. Fans were excited by the list of TV shows, animated movies, and films that were accessible, but felt the comics section was lacking. The original content line-up was worthy of a side-eye. Even the staunchest DC fan has reservations as to how strong the content on the streaming service would be. Months after release, the DC Universe proves just how strong it bring it, and announces updates that will worthy of a title like DC ‘Universe’.
While we have seen many cartoon iteration of the famed DC supergroup, The Teen Titans, we have yet to see a live action version of them. We’ve had the Cartoon Network’s kid-friendly version of the team, as well as countless direct to video movies released via On Demand and Blu-Ray. The Teen Titans have been going through development hell for quite some time. For the last four years, there have been numerous attempts to bring about a live-action version of them to television. We almost came close with a potential TNT series, but that fell through as well. However, good things come to those who wait.
While DC‘s Cinematic Universe could arguably be called a steaming pile of mess, the animated side is kicking butt and taking names. No one can quite figure out how Warner Bros. and DC can crank out fantastic animated movies and series while dropping loads at the box office. Once again the animated looks to put the live action in the corner with the release of Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. Check out the trailer below. (more…)
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike, Pee Wee’s Big Holiday) is all set to take on Ben Affleck‘s Batman as fan favorite villain Deathstroke the Terminator. Affleck teased Deathstroke in a Twitter video last month and speculation on casting has been centered on Manganiello ever since. His name has come up before, when DC was casting Superman, Mangnaiello was one of the top names in contention until Henry Cavill sealed the deal and became the Man of Steel. When will Deathstroke make his big screen debut? (more…)
If there is one thing Warner Bros/ DC does better than Marvel, its their animated universe. From Flashpoint, The Dark Knight Returns, Young Justice, and everything in between, they absolutely knock it out of the park. This is not to say Marvel isn’t any good but the sheer volume of quality animated movies and shows that DC puts out is way ahead of anything Marvel has been doing. DC also treats their animated projects with much more brevity than kid friendly stuff Marvel does on Disney XD. For every Spider-Man or Super Hero Squad, there is Justice League Doom or All Star Superman. Sufficed to say, fans are eager to know what’s next.
During their Comic-Con panel, they officially announced three animated films that are currently underway…
Once there was a dream – a dream of the much-loved Teen Titans coming to a television channel known as TNT. And then that dream collapsed… TNT decided to dump the idea and those of us who would love to see such iconic DC characters as Nightwing, Starfire and Raven in live-action were left wanting. But there is, just maybe, a light at the end of the tunnel. It appears as if DC hasn’t given up yet. In fact, this turn of events may mean that the Titans end up getting a shot at the big screen instead. Read on to hear what one of the DC gurus has to say on the matter. (more…)
It’s long been common knowledge around the Geek Train that Warner Bros. was putting together a live action ‘Teen Titans’ television show. Of course when producers get their hands on a piece of merchandise, they have to change things around, so none of the Titans will be teens at all. These adult heroes will be led by Robin and will feature a largely female cast from what we’re hearing through the grapevine. If you follow that vine long enough, you’ll land knee-deep in Nerdist country where Jessica Chobot reports on a leaked script of the pilot, and everything she knows about it. Well, now we know what she knows, and we’re gonna sing like birds. Birds Of Prey, that is. Hint, hint. Hawks and Doves, that is! Hint! Hint!
I’ve said too much… (more…)
This time on PODCAST, HUMOR Jeremy and guest host (that is totally not Jason) Neil B. Deep (see? Not Jason,) gather around the glowing internet fire to discuss all manner of things that pertain to fitness, finance, and faith. Also reports indicate that Marvel and Sony discussed a Spider-Man double-team and Deadpool is happening (I know you already knew that… just go with it). Also there are other things!
Here are the other things! (more…)
Word hit the Internet a couple of months ago that DC was bringing a live action television show to TNT featuring the Teen Titans with the title Titans. Are you wondering why they lost the “Teen” in the title and when production on the series might start? Now we’ve got some details that might clear everything up. (more…)
It’s almost as if DC Comics and their parent studio Warner Bros. are ceding movie screens to Marvel Studios because today comes word of yet another DC-based TV project. Following quickly on the heels of the announcement of a Supergirl series being in development, and coming in advance of the premiere of four new DC Comics-based series and the third season premiere of Arrow, comes news that the Teen Titans might also be coming to TV screens everywhere. A pilot called Titans, which is based on the long-running superhero team that first appeared in the 1960s, is being developed for TNT, and if they like what they see, it could lead to an ongoing series about the team. But that’s the good news… (more…)
