SDCC 2018: TV Trailers Overflow at Comic Con

Comic Con is often remembered for the big panels in Hall H, the massive studio presence by companies like Marvel, and the fans.  When Marvel announced they would not have the usual massive presence many worried that the behemoth that is SDCC might be slowing down in its old age (next year the con turns 50).  Nothing could have been further from the truth.

Along with news of tentpole films like Aquaman, WonderWoman84, and Godzilla King of Monsters there were also a lot of great new trailers for shows like Doctor Who, Star Trek: Discovery, and the Walking Dead franchise.

Sometimes those big reveals overshadow some other shows worthy of attention.

8 Series That Show DC is Better at TV than Film

Other than Christopher Nolan‘s Batman Trilogy and the recent Wonder Woman film, DC has struggled to find their feet on the big screen.  Films like Batman V. 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…)

As high as the season premiere episode reached last week, this week’s episode fell short of wowing audiences again. It’s too be expected though. You can’t keep up the wow factor from opening night to the next. Titled, “Mixed Signals,” the episode sent mixed signals throughout the entire episode. After being locked up within the Speedforce one would think you’d go insane. But when Barry escaped, he had been acting as if everything was just as he had left. Of course, that was not the case, nor was it ever as viewers would discover later in the show.

If you haven’t seen last night’s episode of the The Flash, you may want to look away until you do. These reviews contain plenty of spoilers and don’t tend to hold back on any kind of speculation. Titled, “The Flash Reborn” this week’s premiere episode saw the return of Barry Allen after ending last season by walking into the Speed Force with something that looked like his mother. While the series has been on a bit of a roll, the season premiered began with some mixed emotions. Of course, you had plenty of people who were happy to see the return of the Scarlet Speedster, but there were also some who thought Barry hadn’t been gone long enough. And there were even those who thought he should have stayed in there for an episode or two longer while everyone else worked to solve any personal issues that may have developed over the Summer.

For this week’s episode, and season finale, of The Flash, “Finish Line” is quite the appropriate title. Not only are there so many meanings behind the phrase, but there are questions that it raises for next season and the future of the series. If you were lucky enough to catch it live, then you were a witness to one of the coolest scenes in super hero television in a some time. If you haven’t seen it yet, then you should probably go and do so before finishing this sentence. Warning: There will be a lot of spoilers ahead.

The time has finally come. The moment that fans have been dreading almost all season arrived during this week’s episode of The Flash.

You’ll recall that last month, there was a rumour going around that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment were courting legendary filmmaker Robert Zemeckis to helm their very much troubled movie about The Flash. Those rumours were somewhat quickly (no pun intended) dismissed saying that Zemeckis took *a* meeting with the studio, and there was no kind of courtship going on, but a good idea is a good idea, and sometimes you can’t make a good idea go away so easily. And that’s why there’s renewed hype this morning in an exclusive report that not only is Warners/DC chasing Zemeckis, they actually want him to do it.  (more…)

Barry Allen has carried the weight of the world on his shoulders since the first episode. From always carrying the guilt of loved ones dying, keeping his friends alive, to protecting Central City 24/7, Barry has been due for a vacation for quite some time.

With the opportunity to rid him of all his problems, would the result still be the Barry Allen you’ve grown to love and admire?
