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

Exclusive Interview with Kevin Altieri, Batman: The Animated Series Director

For any comic book fan growing up in the 90s, there was one definitive shared after-school ritual: Watching Batman: The Animated Series on Fox. The Warner Bros. Animation cartoon series ran from 1992 to 1995, and yet in just those three years it redefined the capped crusader in more ways than we could list here and introduced an entire new generation to the greater DC Comics universe. Borrowing from the aesthetic style and tone of the two Tim Burton Batman films, Batman: The Animated Series... Read More

Batgirl Needs Wonder Woman and We Need Them Both

What the Addition of Deathstroke Means for DC

DCEU is getting Deathstroke! The famed DC mercenary, also known as Slade Wilson, has become even more popular in recent years due to a role on the CW‘s Arrow.  https://t.co/0NsNzCtGip — Ben Affleck (@BenAffleck) August 29, 2016 A lot of...

Dear Warner Bros, Please Back Off

Much like the title character he was set to direct, Seth Grahame-Smith is running pretty quickly – unfortunately, it’s away from working on The Flash.  Citing “creative differences”, Grahame-Smith has decided to step down from his directorial debut.  Warner Bros. will still be using the screenplay he wrote, but would like a more “experienced” director at the helm.
