6 Things I Want to See From DC’s New 10-Year Plan

Last week saw major waves in the world of superhero entertainment when Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav struck down the already completed Batgirl movie, refusing to even let it air on HBO Max. I was disappointed, because I would have gladly watched a Batgirl movie, even if I didn’t have high hopes. Then immediately after the cancellation, Zaslav announced a bold 10-year plan for DC properties moving forward, with him expecting to turn all DC superhero movies into blockbusters.

Peacemaker reboot incoming

Now that the dust has settled, I’ve decided to share my thoughts, hopes and dreams on this 10-year plan. I am an avowed Marvel fanboy. I still love everything Marvel Studios is putting out and I’m not experiencing that superhero fatigue at all. I’m still in awe that all these comic book characters are getting these great shows and movies. I’m open to liking DC stuff, but Zack Snyder’s visions definitely didn’t work on me in the long run. This new 10-year plan could mean all sorts of different things going forward.

Join me after the jump for my ideas for this 10-year plan and what I hope to see happen. And please feel free to share your own hopes and dreams for DC in the comments.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/14/22

Now this is more like it! Finally a week with a bunch of comics, and most of them thoroughly enjoyable! That’s what I like to read. We’ve got the likes of Mighty Morphin and X-Men to enjoy!

Comic Book of the Week goes to The Jurassic League #1 for a truly wonderful, full-bore dive into this silly and enjoyable idea. Stand aside, apes! The age of the dinosaur is here!

It gets even better

Meanwhile, I’ll be seeing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness for a second time today. Can’t wait! And I just finished all five seasons of The Last Kingdom on Netflix. Very enjoyable show. I’m in between video games at the moment, so if you have any suggestions, let me know. Perhaps I should try Elden Ring

Comic Reviews: Batgirls #6, The Jurassic League #1, Mighty Morphin #19, Superman: Son of Kal-El #11 and X-Men #11.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 4/16/22

Welcome to another little pile of comic book reviews from this random nobody on the internet! Apparently I had a pretty off week this week because nothing stood out as all that great, and some comics with faults really started to get to me. Oh well.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #8 for another one of their excellent downtime issues. The new creative team is still doing OK in my book.

He makes house calls

Meanwhile, I’m nearing the end of Horizon Forbidden West and this game lived up to all my hopes and expectations. I’m gonna stretch it out as far as I can and enjoy the world. I also finally watched Sweet Tooth on Netflix and it was really good! Can’t wait for the next season.

Comic Reviews: Batgirls #5, Mighty Morphin #18, Superman: Son of Kal-El #10 and X-Men #10.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 3/12/22

Happy Wedding, everybody! If you’re reading this on the day of release, my sister is getting married today and I’m out celebrating and being a good big brother. Thankfully, I had enough time before I had to leave to read and review some comics, like Batgirls, Strange Academy and more!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Superman: Son of Kal-El #9. This crossover with Nightwing has been the best thing this new Superman has done so far in this series, and I only wish that magic could remain.

Nightwings

Meanwhile, I broke down and bought Horizon Forbidden West, even though I won’t have time to play it until after I get back from my trip. I guess I just wanted to spend that money. I also started the TV show Reacher, which is pretty fun and simple so far. I’ll finish that when I get home as well.

Comic Reviews: Batgirls #4, Mighty Morphin #17, Superman: Son of Kal-El #9, Strange Academy #17 and Thor #23.

DC League of Super-Pets Looks Worse and Worse

The Batman came out this past weekend, so DC whipped up a new Batman-focused trailer for the upcoming cartoon DC League of Super-Pets. I don’t have high hopes for this movie.

I dunno, I’m just not digging the tone of this movie. It seems to both want to be legit while also breaking the fourth wall and mocking itself. And I’m still not convinced about The Rock as Krypto. I think it’s more stunt casting than actual, quality voice work.

But perhaps I’m being too judgmental. We’ll all find out for real when DC League of Super-Pets comes to theaters on May 20.
