Does The Flash look like the best DC movie in a long time?
February 12th, 2023 under DC Comics. [ Comments: 1 ]

The Flash has been plagued with trouble because its lead Ezra Miller, has been getting in trouble since the movie wrapped. However, it is still getting a lot of positive buzz.

Tonight, during the Super Bowl, we got to see the first trailer for the movie. Do you think that buzz is warranted?

To me, it looks like all the superhero movies, which is why I haven’t seen one since the first Avengers.


Shazam! Fury of the Gods looks like all the other DC Universe movies
January 26th, 2023 under DC Comics, Zachary Levi. [ Comments: 1 ]

I am so happy that James Gunn took over DC Studios because they desperately need a change. Almost all of the movies feel the same. They are all serious with little joy and humor.

Actually, I shouldn’t say all. The first Shazam movie had the latter two elements, but the sequel looks like it lost them.

Because of that, I feel that Gunn and Zachary Levi are going to have a talk in April that Levi is not going to like.

So you better see him as a child turned adult superhero on March 17th because it looks like it will be your last chance to do so.


The Rock reveals Black Adam 2 is not happening

The Rock spent 15 years trying to get Black Adam made, and it finally happened. It made it all the way to theaters and delighted fans all over the world. Therefore, a sequel seemed like a done deal. But today, we found out it is not happening.

“My passionate friends, I wanted to give you a long-awaited Black Adam update regarding the character’s future in the new DC Universe. James Gunn and I connected, and Black Adam will not be in their first chapter of storytelling,” he wrote. “However, DC and Seven Bucks have agreed to continue exploring the most valuable ways Black Adam can be utilized in future DC multiverse chapters.”

Even though DJ’s dream is on hold, he is not bitter toward Gunn. The two have supported each other through the years and will continue to do so.

Today’s revelation says to me that if Black Adam and DJ can’t move forward with the DC Studios’ chiefs, no one can. I think everyone is going to be replaced with the new regime. And that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.


Patty Jenkins gives an update on Wonder Woman 3
December 14th, 2022 under DC Comics. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, there were reports that DC Studios was not moving forward with Wonder Woman 3 because they were not happy with Patty Jenkins’ treatment for the film.

Yesterday, the director broke her silence on the future of the film. “Sigh… I’m not one to talk about private career matters, but I will not allow inaccuracies to continue. Here are the facts:

“I originally left Rogue Squadron after a long and productive development process when it became clear it couldn’t happen soon enough and I did not want to delay WW3 any further. When I did, Lucasfilm asked me to consider coming back to RS after WW3, which I was honored to do, so I agreed. They made a new deal with me. In fact, I am still on it and that project has been in active development ever since. I don’t know if it will happen or not. We never do until the development process is complete, but I look forward to its potential ahead.

“When there started being backlash about WW3 not happening, the attractive clickbait false story that it was me that killed it or walked away started to spread. This is simply not true. I never walked away. I was open to considering anything asked of me. It was my understanding there was nothing I could do to move anything forward at this time. DC is obviously buried in changes they are having to make, so I understand these decisions are difficult right now.

“I do not want what has been a beautiful journey with WW to land on a negative note. I have loved and been so honored to be the person who got to make these last two Wonder Woman films. She is an incredible character. Living in and around her values makes one a better person every day. I wish her and her legacy an amazing future ahead, with or without me.”

I think at this point, between James Gunn and Peter Safran just taking over DC Studios and David Zaslav killing everything good at Warner Bros Discovery, we just have to assume everything is in flux.

So in about a year, we might have a better idea of where everything stands. If any of it is still standing by then?


Sequel updates: The Holiday, Rush Hour, Election, and Wonder Woman
December 8th, 2022 under DC Comics, Jackie Chan, Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe. [ Comments: none ]

On Tuesday, there was a report that there was going to be a sequel to The Holiday, but Nancy Meyers, who wrote and directed the film, quickly denied it.

Yesterday, she went on Today and explained why it is not going to happen. “I’ve been asked to make a sequel a couple of times, you know. And I think about it. And I think it is good just the way it is. I don’t know how I won’t disappoint,” she said. “It was just a moment in time for all of them. And for me.”

So if you are disappointed by the news that there won’t be a sequel, you have to ask yourself, is it better not to have a sequel or have a sequel that never should’ve been made?

And that brings us to Rush Hour 4. Jackie Chan revealed today at the Red Sea International Film Festival in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, that he and Chris Tucker are in talks to make a fourth movie, according to Variety.

Before Reese Witherspoon was Legally Blonde, she would do anything to win an Election. However, she can win a sequel at Paramount+. The Hollywood Reporter says that the streaming service is in talks to make Tracy Flick Can’t Win, a sequel to the movie based on the book that came out this year.

I think if they had a vote to see if we wanted this movie, it would’ve been as popular as Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband was when he ran for President.

And finally, there is Wonder Woman 3. Yesterday, there was a report that James Gunn passed on making a third Wonder Woman film with Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins, and today he addressed the rumors.

“So. As for the story yesterday in the Hollywood Reporter, some of it is true, some of it is half-true, some of it is not true, & some of it we haven’t decided yet whether it’s true or not,” he wrote. “Although this first month at DC has been fruitful, building the next ten years of story takes time & we’re still just beginning. Peter & I chose to helm DC Studios knowing we were coming into a fractious environment, both in the stories being told & in the audience itself & there would be an unavoidable transitional period as we moved into telling a cohesive story across film, TV, animation, and gaming. But, in the end, the drawbacks of that transitional period were dwarfed by the creative possibilities & the opportunity to build upon what has worked in DC so far & to help rectify what has not. But, in the end, the drawbacks of that transitional period were dwarfed by the creative possibilities & the opportunity to build upon what has worked in DC so far & to help rectify what has not. We know we are not going to make every single person happy every step of the way, but we can promise everything we do is done in the service of the STORY & in the service of the DC CHARACTERS we know you cherish and we have cherished our whole lives. As for more answers about the future of the DCU, I will sadly have to ask you to wait. We are giving these characters & the stories the time & attention they deserve & we ourselves still have a lot more questions to ask & answer.”

Let’s be honest. DC Studios needs to rework its strategy because its movies are not as good as Marvel’s pictures. They are too dark, both visually and thematically.

That’s all folks…for now.
