We’ve Had a Live Action Starfire This Whole Time!

The third season of the TV show Titans is due out…I think any year now…on HBO Max! We’ve already seen the live action Red Hood costume, and now they’ve revealed the new, more comics-accurate Starfire costume!

Here’s actor Anna Diop in the flashy purple Starfire costume!

Hopefully they don’t give her 1994 Fantastic Four fire effects

I think it looks neat! It also looks a little awkward, but then a proper comic book Starfire costume was probably always going to look awkward. At least she’s not being made to wear a purple metal bikini on national TV…or HBO Max.

I still need to watch the second season of Titans.

Some People May Be Looking Forward to the Snyder Cut

I am not one of those people. I liked Justice League well enough when I saw it in theaters, but I haven’t seen it since. And I like a lot of director Zack Snyder’s earlier work, like 300 and Watchmen. Heck, I also really like Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah!

But man, this new-ish trailer for the #SnyderCut is atrocious.

First of all, it’s almost exactly like the original trailer that was put up a couple weeks ago. That got taken down for a copyright strike on the song…so they just re-upload the trailer again with the same song and a couple of seconds of new footage? Second of all, it’s in black and white?! The actual #SnyderCut will not be in black and white. Which means this is an entirely “artistic” choice for this trailer. Jeez louise.

Third of all, did you hear that Wonder Woman 1984 is going to debut both in theaters and on HBO Max on Christmas Day? Bold strategy! Looks like I’ll get to see it after all!

There’s Gonna Be Even More Adventure Time!

Adventure Time may be over, but apparently HBO Max is all about adding a few more adventures with their Distant Lands sequels. I still haven’t watched the BMO movie, but here’s one starring Marceline the Vampire Queen and Princess Bubblegum!

Distant Lands: Obsidian will start airing on Nov. 19 and it should be fun in that we can actually enjoy the Marceline/Bubblegum romance instead of it just being something that happened at the end of the show. Depending on how many of these Distant Lands bits we get, I’ll definitely have to binge them all in a weekend some day.

6 Things I Want to See in Harley Quinn Season 3

Thankfully, because some good things did happen this year, we got a renewal notice for a third season of Harley Quinn. I love this cartoon. I thought both the first and second seasons were amazing and wonderful and everything I could possibly want from a DC animated adventure. So I’m tickled pink that we’ll be getting a third season.

Get in, bitches, we’re going to season 3!

But what’s the third season going to contain? Harley Quinn is a show with very firm changes to the status quo. Characters are killed, Batman is horribly injured, romance is real; one of the main things I want is for these status quo changes to remain. There are real stakes in Harley Quinn and that is half the fun. But I’m a big comic book fan, and there are still things I hope to see in the third season!

Join me after the jump for my ideas for season 3. And expect FULL SPOILERS for the first two seasons. Harley Quinn is available to stream on HBO Max and I highly, highly recommend it!
