Yes, this is a fantastic trailer. BUT even the Fantastic Four reboot had a fantastic trailer! So who knows? All I know is that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is going to steal the show. And combined with Jared Leto’s Joker? Surely a Joker-Harley movie cannot be far behind… Hope DC Continue Reading

Barely before the excitement over the first Captain America: Civil War trailer has subsided, Warners releases a new trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and it is a humdinger!
Why does this exist? Well, a couple of reasons. — Sequels are profitable. — Trilogies are in vogue — A cash in on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (where the version of Batman is inspired by The Dark Knight Returns) Oh, you wanted artistic reasons.
Probably aware that comic fans might just be getting tired of publishers using the death of superheroes to create the facade of something new happening in their titles, DC have decided to kill off its most iconic villain, Darkseid (see above)! This event occurred in the currently ongoing Darkseid War Continue Reading
Well, it may have taken 54 years but better late than never! Finally, the concept of the DC multiverse first mooted in The Flash #123 (1961) makes its way into mainstream pop culture. The second episode of CW’s The Flash Season 2 sets up this premise as the core storyline Continue Reading
There have been doubts about Warner Bros throwing in a Suicide Squad movie adaptation so quickly in the mix but they wanted to different themselves from Marvel Studios, then this is certainly one way to do it! A super-villain team-up? How more contrasting to The Avengers can you get? From Continue Reading

The last two years have been amazing for superhero comic book geeks. In the wake of the mega-success of The Avengers, superheroes have gone from strength to strength with Arrow and Agents of SHIELD setting the pace for superhero TV as well. But it is with The Flash, that geeks Continue Reading
CW and DC up the ante in the Superhero TV stakes with a super-team of time travellers. This is really ambitious but if done properly could be a game-changer and force Marvel/ABC to look beyond the lame grey super-spy concept of Agents of SHIELD. It’s a good time to be Continue Reading
Damn! Had goosebumps watching this. Switched off my pedantic geek critic and just enjoyed the thrill of DC Silver Age super-heroics done well. High hopes of the series now! Check it out!!
Warner Bros. is employing a different strategy than Marvel as it hires five writers for ‘Wonder Woman,’ has no clear leader and deals with new frustrations in its struggles to craft a compelling 10-movie world. Source: Superman vs. Batman? DC’s Real Battle Is How to Create Its Superhero Universe – Continue Reading
Why so serious? The Joker in Suicide Squad makes no sense to me at all. Can you imagine the Joker as a team player? So for me, that whole concept is already somewhat of a non starter. But of course, Warners wanted a character that would conceivably sell tickets (nobody Continue Reading
Warners have their work cut out to get ahead of Disney in the geek movie stakes. Man of Steel was the first salvo in its war effort. And it is certain that the reinvention of the DC universe in the movies is going to take quite a battering from Marvel fans, Continue Reading

When DC first collapsed the multiverse into one universe in Crisis on Infinite Earths, I was rather upset to lose the alternative earths that gave DC its unique flavour. Most of all, of course, I hated what it meant for the Legion of Super-heroes. But that’s another story, altogether. Well, Continue Reading

The ‘death of Arrow – Brick takeover’ saga comes to a conclusion. But the threat of retribution from Ra’s Al Ghul and the League of Assassin towards Merlyn and Arrow remains very real. A myriad plotlines come together nicely but not without setting off more new ones. Laurel settles into her Continue Reading
