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

CW Casts Superman: Makes Wrong Choice

  So the news broke yesterday that the CW  had found there new Superman.  That honor will go to Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin.  I will say it again, Tyler Hoechlin will be Superman.  I had to check multiple sources to make sure I was reading that correctly.

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
