Welp, here we are. After all the movies, all the drama, all the weird plans and random spin-offs. After all the acting controversies and reboots and new directions. After all that stuff, we finally have the best thing to come out of the DC Expanded Universe, and it’s a TV show about Peacemaker. How did this even happen?
TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!
I’ll be frank, I’m not the biggest fan of the DCEU. I don’t particularly like Zack Snyder’s various Justice League movies, and I endlessly chortle at DC’s failure to ape the winning formula of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But I’ve watched it all, because I’m a sucker for superheroes, and I can confidently declare that Peacemaker is as good as it gets. There’s even a very strong chance that I’ve enjoyed Peacemaker more than every Marvel TV show so far. Blasphemy, I know, but Peacemaker is that damn good (I’ll probably walk back that claim pretty quickly in the long run). Peacemaker is damn fine TV and I’m so glad more seasons have already been ordered.

The Peacemaker TV show is coming out in a week, and it looks cool as heck! I loved The Suicide Squad on the big screen, and knowing that James Gunn produced this spin-off show means great things. So enjoy this new trailer.
This show just looks bigger and weirder and funnier with each passing trailer. Will it live up to its own hype? Only time will tell…time being next week! Peacemaker comes to HBO Max on Jan. 13.
Good news, everybody! Remember when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had a handful of mid and post-credits scenes, and one of them teased Adam Warlock? Turns out Marvel and James Gunn are definitely going to follow up on that teaser and bring Adam Warlock into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3!
And he’s gonna be played by Will Poulter. Good for him.
But don’t take my word for it. James Gunn himself confirmed the news on Twitter, after Deadline broke the story. So yeah, Will Poulter as Adam Warlock.
OK. Fine by me. I don’t have opinions on either the person or the character. But you’re damn right I trust James Gunn.
The long wait is over and The Suicide Squad has arrived. Not to be confused with Suicide Squad from a couple of years ago. This is a sequel/relaunch and obviously much, much better. James Gunn wrote and directed this new film, and I’m as big a James Gunn fan as everybody else. So I had high hopes for this film and all of them were met and/or exceeded!
Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great.
Take a bunch of unimportant C and D-list supervillains from the annals of DC Comics and put them on a team of black ops specialists is a great idea. They’ve been making fun Suicide Squad comics for years. The team has shown up in the DC cartoons and the DC live action shows. They’re a pretty impressive crew. So it’s a shame that The Suicide Squad has bombed at the box office. We’re definitely never getting a sequel now. C’est la vie.

Earlier this week, we got a red band trailer for The Suicide Squad movie by James Gunn. Red band means it’s not fit for our innocent eyes. Fortunately for all of us, DC and Gunn have released a green band trailer that’s safe for work and our innocent eyes! And it’s just as much fun!
This movie looks great! Both trailers are a ton of fun. All the characters look to be a ton of fun. This whole thing looks like a big, fun action romp of a movie that we’re all hopefully going to love! I’m going to get the hype up regardless!
The Suicide Squad comes to both theaters and HBO Max on Aug. 6!
