First Last of Us Trailer Picked a Great Song

The Last of Us is going to be a TV show on HBO, and now we’ve got the first ever trailer! It looks great and they picked a great song to go along with it. This trailer does a great job of setting the mood and setting up all we know about the Last of Us world.

I have high hopes for this show. I loved both games, including The Last of Us 2, and I’m sure HBO can do a good job. There have been a lot of good adaptations of books and comics and games that have crashed and burned lately. So I’m going to remain hopeful and positive, especially after this first look.

And you can always count on Alone and Forsaken by Hank Williams to be a kickass doomsday song.

The Last of Us comes to HBO next year.

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.

House of the Dragon is Also Trying Really Hard

We got a full trailer for the upcoming Game of Thrones spin-off called House of Dragons. It’s a big, epic adventure trailer full of dragons and knights and all sorts of madness. And I think this trailer and this entire show is trying too hard.

Honestly, I consider House of the Dragon the same way I consider The Rings of Power: some TV studio is clinging to a popular franchise too hard and is hoping desperately they can somehow make a successful prequel spin-off show by throwing money at it. But neither trailer has provided much of a look at the actual story or what we’re supposed to care about. Why are they prequels? How is that going to be a good idea?

Can money make a show? Look. I am one of the few people in the world who liked and is content with the Game of Thrones finale. Come at me. But as much as we all enjoyed that show, do any of us really care about this prequel series? About the ancient history of the Targaryen family and their dragons?

I think both House of the Dragon and The Rings of Power are both going to equally and simultaneously crash and burn.

This Harley Quinn Trailer Has a Lot of Cussing

Another week, another new trailer for the Harley Quinn cartoon and it’s upcoming season 3! I love this show and it’s a lazy Tuesday, so why not just share another one of these trailers? I can’t wait for this season!

But since this red band trailer is full of cussing, I can’t link it directly from YouTube. So how about the Twitter version?

Looks great! I can’t wait for all the humor, the character growth and the cussing. You can still watch the trailer on YouTube if you’d like. It’s much simpler, but has all sorts of rules.

Anyway, Harley Quinn season 3 comes to HBO Max on July 28! So a week and two days away!

Nightwing Joins Awesome Harley Quinn Cartoon!

We’ve got an even bigger and better trailer for season 3 of Harley Quinn, which is coming to HBO Max at the end of this month. I love this show. It’s pretty much perfect. And I can only imagine it’s going to get even better in season 3! Largely because we’re getting Nightwing!

We’ve also got Harley and Poison Ivy in a relationship, with promises from the showrunners that they’re not going to break them up or fill their relationship with a bunch of will they/won’t they nonsense. They’re a same sex couple and they’re damn proud and awesome about it. So great! And Joker is running for mayor! That sounds fun too!

I can’t wait for Harley Quinn season 3, kicking off on July 28.
