Justice League Exceeds All Expectations!

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. I was. It is real. The CW has made a huge mistake and missed a big opportunity. There are plenty of people who wanted to see a fresh take on Superman, and I do not necessarily think that is a bad thing.  However, This is... Read More

Superman Casting Underway

For all of season 1 of Supergirl, Superman was always there as a presence; sometimes blurred out, sometimes seen from a far, and almost always instant messaging Kara (Melissa Benoist).  The one constant was no one got to see who Clark was being played by.  This was intentionally done, with the show runners not wanting to possibly overshadow Supergirl with one of DC Comic’s most iconic characters.  The show will be starting its sophomore season on a new network, having moved...

Dawn of Justice: The Critics Are Wrong

WARNING: This article contains SPOILERS for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Ever since Ben Affleck was announced as the new Batman, many, myself included have been skeptical about his ability to pull off the role.  After all, he was Daredevil, and we all know how that went.  As the release approached, and critics started trashing Batman v Superman left and right, I honestly can admit to losing sleep over it.  Could DC mess up as bad as they did with Green Lantern? How will this... Read More
