Wonder Woman: the Hero Warner Bros Needed, but Not the One it Deserved

Wonder Woman opened on June 2nd to something Warner Brothers wasn’t used to: Good reviews.  With the studio taking death blows from critics with each new release (seriously go read the reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad) they needed a hero (and a hit film) that could shield them.  Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) is that hero. I’ve written before about how this film could be game changing in a Hollywood where men rule; from studio heads, directors, and top... Read More

Crisis on Infinite Directors in the DCEU

It looks like Justice League is already getting an Earth-2 alternate universe, because Joss Whedon (Avengers, Serenity) has officially taken over the reigns as director.  The Zack Snyder cut that may have been was sidelined by personal tragedy, and the long tenured DCEU director has officially stepped down.   Out of respect for director Snyder’s family, the details of this event will not appear in this article. Hot off the heels of reshoot rumors (which were later waived off as a hoax),... Read More

Batgirl Needs Wonder Woman and We Need Them Both

One of the most recent projects rumored to be in the works for the DC Extended Universe is a Batgirl stand alone film.  Any story from the Bat-Family tends to get lots of buzz, and this story is no different–especially since Joss Whedon’s  speculatively in talks to direct!  While this humble nerd journalist believes this could definitely be a big move for DC, we need to see how Warner Brothers handles Wonder Woman first before getting ourselves too excited; the success...

Could Ryan Potter Be the DC Extended Universe’s Robin?

Most of you already know that due to his success in the role of Batman, Ben Affleck will be directing and starring in a stand alone movie for the iconic DC Comics character.  Since that announcement, rumors and speculation about villains & allies for the Dark Knight have been making their way around the internet.

The Joker’s Identity Revealed!

The Joker’s background has varied over the years, but most origins center... Read More

Supergirl’s Soaring over to the CW

Months ago, CBS President/CEO Les Moonves said that most of the freshman shows on the network would be renewed, and since then fans have been anxiously waiting to hear the fate of Supergirl.  Good ratings, just not great ones, didn’t justify the $3-million an episode budget, and some decisions needed to be made; basically the choice was cancellation, renew for a shortened season on CBS, drastically cut the budget, or send it to The CW. In the end, the latter decision was made, as well... Read More

Supergirl/Flash Crossover Update: The Grumble Heard Round the World, But Which World?

Warning:  This article contains potential spoilers for Supergirl. Just when I couldn’t be happier about Supergirl being renewed for another season, DC and CBS find a way to completely burst my bubble.  While I’m overjoyed that the heroes will team up against Livewire (Brit Morgan) and Silver Banshee (Italia Ricci), I’m equally pissed at the other news released regarding the episode: Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Barry (Grant Gustin) are from two different worlds.  I don’t...
