Leslie Grace Cast as Batgirl for Hopeful Movie

Looks like DC and Warner Bros are indeed going ahead with a Batgirl movie for HBO Max. That sounds good to me! They’re so serious about this project that they have actually cast Barbara Gordon. She will be played by Leslie Grace, who recently starred in In the Heights.

I remain a major Batgirl of Burnside fan

This also sounds good to me! Grace was really good in In the Heights and I’m sure she’ll be a fine Batgirl. Whether or not the project actually gets made is the other issue. DC have announced and abandoned so many movies that I’ve lost count. Heck, apparently that Nightwing movie is still happening? Who knows.

But Batgirl apparently has a screenwriter, a pair of directors and now a lead actor. So that’s all very hopeful, as far as I’m concerned!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 7/10/21

Does it feel good to have Marvel movies back in the theater! Went and saw Black Widow and I loved it! I’ll have my review/thoughts up on Wednesday. Until then, I also had some great comics this week, like Batman, Runaways and Wonder Girl.

Comic Book of the Week goes to X-Men #1 for a fantastic launch of the new series. Very excited about this one.

They’ve mastered cool team poses so far

Meanwhile, I’ve got my 20th high school reunion on Friday. It will be exciting to let everybody know I’m still fat. But seriously though, should be a fun lark. I’ll tell everybody to come read my comic book reviews more often.

Comic Reviews: Batman #110, Children of the Atom #5, Runaways #37, Wonder Girl #2 and X-Men #1.

Batgirl Has Got Some Cool New Threads!

Current Nightwing artist Bruno Redondo has redesigned Batgirl’s costume for new, upcoming storylines! Batgirl gets costume redesigns all the time. I’m a particular fan of the Burnside costume. And this new outfit seems to be a combination of Burnside and Classic.

Redondo is doing great works on the Nightwing comic, with writer Tom Taylor. It’s fluid, smooth and drop dead gorgeous artwork. His Tim Drake Robin has been especially wonderful.

So I look forward to where this costume will show up! Reportedly new costumes are coming for Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain as well, creating a trio of Batgirls. We’ll see where that goes.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/26/21

Pretty average week for me, all things considered. Thankfully, we’ve got some good, solid, enjoyable comics! Mostly. The Hellfire Gala has some strong chapters, and that’s mostly about it.

Comic Book of the Week goes to S.W.O.R.D. #6 for the powerful, character-based, emotional Hellfire Gala issue I’ve been waiting for! This one finally shows what all the big moves have been about!

Because even you like good comics, Doctor

Meanwhile, at long last, several years in the waiting, I am finally playing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. My favorite types of video games are the big, open world sandbox adventures, and this is supposedly the best of the all. But I didn’t own a Nintendo Switch. Now I do and the game is great. I might be playing this all summer!

Also, Heroes Reborn ended in a fun way. It all led to a big fight, as these things usually do. But this was definitely one of my favorite of the recent Big Events. I don’t read them all, but this one had some real charm and, as I’ve been saying all along, it had that sweet Amalgam Comics vibe that I love so much!

Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #1038, Power Rangers #8, Robin #3, Wolverine #13, S.W.O.R.D. #6 and Way of X #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/12/21

It’s the week of weeks! What week is that? Why…this week, obviously. I’m getting more sleep now so I’m feeling better, so at least there’s that. Plenty of fun comics this week, from the finale to Far Sector to a couple more solid chapters of the Hellfire Gala!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #8 because, as is usually the case, I love this comic and everything in it. Maybe I just love any iteration of the Green Power Ranger too much.

The Dragonzord is kicking so much butt!

Meanwhile, the first episode of Loki has arrived and it was really fun! I like the set-up, I like the characters and actors, and I think this is going to be a really neat show. Likewise, Heroes Reborn remains really neat! Probably my favorite Big Event from Marvel in a while.

Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #1037, Far Sector #12, Mighty Morphin #8, Strange Academy #11, Excalibur #21, X-Men #21 and Children of the Atom #4.
