Wonder Woman has just unlocked the achievement of losing less than 50 per cent of its opening weekend gross on its just completed second weekend of release, so there’s really no denying that this is the critical, commercial, and cultural turning point that Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have been looking for. With many questions lingering about the fate and future of the DCEU, let’s look at five things to consider going forward as to how Wonder Woman may impact the future of this shared universe. (more…)
A few days back Heroic Hollywood‘s head honcho, Umberto Gonzalez, revealed that a new intro for the DC Extend Universe will debut before Wonder Woman (he was asked about it on twitter and he replied “CONFIRMED! It’s 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥” so yes there is a new intro and I am guessing 5 fires is a good thing? Bad? Should someone dial 9-1-1?) Now just hours away from the early screenings of the new DCEU film a it has apparently leaked online. (more…)
The early to mid 90’s was a golden era for animation. We had ducks with tales and dark wings, there were ancient Scottish gargoyles protecting New York (from Commander Riker, no less,) heck even the Simpson’s wasn’t completely terrible yet. In those hyper-color™ halcyon days, Warner Bros. had an amazingly successful run with the likes of the animated adventures of Batman, Superman, and even a unique twist on their Looney Tunes stable with Tiny Toon Adventures. It truly was the a great time for cartoons.
Decades later, WB’s (and humanities,) greatest cartoon might be making it’s return. So just sit back and relax because it just might be time for more Animaniacs! (more…)
With the countdown to the film’s release on now (and the marketing finally starting to pick up the pace,) star Gal Gadot premiered the final trailer for Wonder Woman at the MTV Movie and TV Awards tonight. Will the next film in the DC Extended Universe be the godsend the Warner Bros./DC Films franchises are hoping for? Can the first female lead superhero movie live up to the hype and do the Themysciran princess justice? Well, a smart person would wait to make an informed decision by watching the movie first, but for that you have to wait till June 2nd.
Anyway, here’s that final trailer: (more…)
Even though there’s already one incarnation of the Flash is still racing around multiple universes on the CW, DC is no stranger to the concept of simultaneous dimensions and, as such, are creating a whole new Flash on the big screen. Ezra Miller‘s portrayal of the scarlet speedster has already made a cameo in Justice League, but his own story has so far proven elusive. At the moment, his solo movie is due for release in 2020, but there is a lot left to do in that time before it’ll be ready to go. (more…)
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.
It’s difficult to make a bad adaptation when you’re working from source material as rich and absorbing as anything written by Alan Moore, but the complexity of his writing isn’t easy to condense into the relatively small space of a feature length film. For this reason, many fans of Moore’s work – and Moore himself – tend to be critical of film adaptions of his comic books and graphic novels. Zack Snyder‘s 2009 cinematic adapation of Watchmen got exactly this response. Though it was praised for its dark take on the superhero genre and was largely a faithful adaptation of the source material, some felt that a lot of the deeper themes were lost on those who weren’t already familiar with the story.

After parading mini character teasers and posters over the last few days, the new Justice League trailer has been unleashed. It’s fun, action packed, and by gosh, if Aquaman doesn’t steal the show. And, man, what a show it is. (more…)
The big DC Films team-up movie, Justice League, is set to drop a whole new trailer this upcoming Saturday (March 25,) so of course that means a galactic threat level hype machine is currently laying waste to social media across the globe that would leave Despero envious. From Twitter, to YouTube, to Facebook and beyond, Warner Bros. social media interns have been enduring the first 3 cords of The White Stripes ‘Icky Thump’ on repeat as each member of the team has been getting their own 20 second teaser and character poster.
Aquaman was up first, shortly followed by a few other teammates: (more…)
There’s a new Justice League teaser making the Internet rounds after it’s premiere on the Today Show this morning. The teaser does feature a couple new shots for fans and the promise of a new trailer this Saturday. What is interesting is this teaser seems to focus on Jason Momoa as Aquaman which just pushed back its October 2018 release date to December of the same year. Check out the new teaser below. (more…)
