Word has it that there’s a new Superman movie coming from J.J. Abrams and Ta-Nehisi Coates. Word also has it that it’ll star a Black Superman. All of that sounds fine by me. I didn’t care for Man of Steel and I’m more than ready to move on to a new Superman movie. Once again, Warner Bros., DC and Hollywood will have a chance to make a modern Superman movie. I wish them all the luck in the world.
So what would I like to see in a new, modern Superman movie? I have opinions. Of course I do! The movie starring a Black Superman already fulfills one of them. But considering all I know about the world of Superman, surely I have some other thoughts. Villains. Status quos. Other characters? All that good stuff! So let’s have it! Join me after the jump for things I’d like from a new Superman movie.Read the rest of this entry
Holy cow, what a week! Did you see all that Marvel and Star Wars news coming out of Disney?! An Ahsoka Tano TV show? Trailers for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and Loki?! Armor Wars, Ironheart, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel footage; wowzers! It’s gonna be a fun couple of years!
And comics are good too. Some quality issues this week. Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #2 because I am a sucker for this new Green Ranger.
Meanwhile, I am enjoying Cyberpunk 2077. I’m playing it on a Playstation 4 Slim that I bought a couple of years ago. I keep hearing that people are having a lot of problems on the PS4, but I caught some tips and tricks early about adjusting the settings, and my game is running fine a few hours in. Perhaps it looks better on a next-gen console, but since I’ll never see that comparison directly, I’m perfectly content with how it looks now. So yeah, fun times for me.

This week was a stark reminder of how little comics I actually read. Nothing on my DC pull list came out this week…despite issues of the likes of Superman, Aquaman, Batgirl and many more. I either need to expand my reading list again or…I don’t know. I just need to read more comics!
Plenty of Marvel comics to enjoy this week, though. From the return of Doctor Doom and Spider-Man to the start of X of Swords! Comic Book of the Week goes to Juggernaut #1 because I liked that one the best!
Meanwhile, I’ve started watching the show Letterkenny on Hulu. It’s pretty fun. Pretty recommended. And Enola Holmes on Netflix was also good. So I’m in a good place when it comes to watchables right now.

A Justice League Dark TV show was recently announced for the upcoming HBO streaming service. Will it actually happen? I don’t know. DC has announced several dozens potential TV shows and movies in development over the years, and how many actually come to fruition? On the other hand, we do have live action Krypton and Black Lightning TV shows, and the Aquaman movie was a huge hit, so I guess anything is possible!
Some kind of live action Justice League Dark TV show or movie has been in the works since at least 2012, when it was rumored that Guillermo del Toro was working on it. The project has passed through various iterations until this past week, when it was announced that J.J. Abrams was working on the new HBO show. He’s got a pretty solid reputation, right? So maybe it will happen!
That begs the question: Who will appear? Obviously the major players like Zatanna, Constantine and Swamp Thing will likely show up, but who will round out the cast? I have some ideas! Join me after the jump!
Are you ready for some comics? I’m ready for some comics! We’ve got Batman! We’ve got another crazy House of X! We’ve got some awesome Jimmy Olsen and Valkyrie!
This is also the week that J.J. Abrams’ Spider-Man debuted! And I was thoroughly whelmed! Comic Book of the Week instead goes to the latest issue of Tony Stark – Iron Man for a truly wondrous issue. This is a damn good workhorse comic. It’s not really reinventing the wheel, but is instead just telling damn good, worthwhile, interesting stories.
Meanwhile, it was another fine issue of Absolute Carnage. Good event so far! Double meanwhile, I’m skipping Magnificent Ms. Marvel this week. This issue is better than the ones before because it focuses a lot on Kamala’s home life (while bringing back some villains who matter), but I still think the magic is gone. I’ll keep following that comic now and then.
