There’s Going to Be a Teen Titans Go! Movie!

I love Teen Titans Go! I might be one of those few geeks that like this show more than the original. Teen Titans Go! is hilarious! I don’t know what sort of insanity they’re going to do for a full movie, but I am totally on board.

 

Gonna see this one in the theaters! And then we’re also supposed to get a live action Teen Titans TV show later this year, as well as the new season of Young Justice. There is so much Robin-based entertainment coming to me this year!

First Look at Live Action Robin!

Check out this awesome bit of costuming! We got the great news a couple weeks ago that actor Brenton Thwaites would play Robin in the upcoming live action Teen Titans show, and now here’s proof!

That costume looks amazing! I got this pic from DC. The idea that Robin’s colorful costume can totally work in the dark world of Batman is a hill I’m willing to die on. Let’s hope the show actually gets made and the Robin character is awesome — unlike Robin in Teen Titans Go!

This is probably the only live action Robin I’m going to get for a very long time, so I’ve got my hopes up.

Holy Cow! There is Robin Casting News!

I’ve lost track of a lot of superhero casting news in the past couple years, because there are just so many new shows and movies. But you best believe my ears are going to perk up when I hear that a live action Robin is going to be somewhere!

Actor Brenton Thwaites has been cast as Dick Grayson for the upcoming live action Teen Titans show, and he will indeed be Robin instead of Nightwing!

Apparently he starred in that new Pirates movie that nobody saw

I haven’t really given this show much thought, to be honest. I have no idea what to expect. But if Robin is going to be the star, with the show built around him coming out of Batman’s shadow, then I’m definitely on board! Let’s hope they can pull it off! Robin needs some quality live action adaptation!

Teen Titans Go! and the Awesome Music Video!

I love Teen Titans Go! I know some fans of the original Teen Titans cartoon don’t care for it, but I love it to stinkin’ heck! It’s hilarious, it’s wild, it gleefully trolls those fans and when it goes balls to the wall, they go all the way to the damn wall! Like in this amazing music video!

That’s “The Night Beings to Shine” from Fall Out Boy. I haven’t seen the episodes yet, but apparently the dragon is trying to steal the song, which is Cyborg’s favorite song. And apparently that requires the Titans to go full 80s electric insanity on his dragon butt! I gotta watch those episodes!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 1/28/17

Comics! I love’em. You love’em! We can’t live without’em! And here’s another big stack of reviews for comics I read this week. Kind of fun how I keep doing this.

Lots of good reading options this week, from Infamous Iron Man to the new Hulk series to my return to the Pink Ranger mini-series. There are so many good comics to choose from these days. Including and especially the new issue of Spider-Woman, which easily wins Comic Book of the Week due to another impressive, emotional issue.

Does Janice know some twerp is stealing her Beetle guise?

Though I’m not going to lie to you: Spider-Woman #15 is crazier than I could have ever guessed.

I’ve also figured out the worst part about Inhumans vs. X-Men: the unintentional villainy of Ms. Marvel. I’m clearly with the X-Men on this one. The Inhumans are monsters who are comfortable with either killing or deporting every mutant on Earth. Since she’s an Inhuman, Kamala Khan gets drafted into the Inhumans’ side with the new issue, and it’s repugnant. That Kamala would so cheerfully and excitedly join the side in favor of genocide is just wrong. But here we are.

Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #949, Hulk #2, Infamous Iron Man #4, Power Rangers — Pink #6, Prowler #4, Spider-Woman #15, The Dregs #1 and Teen Titans #4.
