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.
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.Read the rest of this entry
Just announced last night on CinemaCon, The Batman has been greenlit for a full-on sequel! It’s going to happen and everybody is coming back! What great news! I thoroughly enjoyed the first movie and I always have high hopes for a new iteration of Batman.
Those high hopes usually revolve around how the new iteration is going to handle Robin. In fact, this whole list could just be repeating Robin after Robin after Robin. I love Robin. And I would love nothing more than to see Robin be treated with reverence and respect in a sequel, his character done right. But that would make a boring list. I can’t just be talking about Robin in The Batman over and over again. So if we remove the Boy Wonder from the equation, what else would I like to see in the officially announced sequel to The Batman?
Join me after the jump for my suggestions for The Batman sequel and what fun we could have.Read the rest of this entry
We made it to Tuesday. That’s a pretty big accomplishment. And to celebrate this monumental achievement, how about some more comedic Batman stuff? This time it’s from the fellows at Corridor!
That’s just plain funny. The Corridor Crew always do good stuff, and inserting Adam West into The Batman is some quality internet hilarity. I hope this brightened your day as much as it did mine. Now it’s off to work, the never-ending cycle of life.
Welp, it’s another Monday. Gotta get up. Gotta go to work. Gotta consider something to share on my blog. Thankfully, the fine folks at How It Should Have Ended put up their cartoon for The Batman. Makes my Monday just that much easier. These people still do good work.
Some OK jokes. Some good plot hole poking. And a really fun alternate ending. Good times all around. And it wasn’t just 10 minutes of their cafe scenes that I don’t like. Heck, I even liked this one! The most important thing is that my Monday posting is taken care of.
The Riddler is the villain of the month thanks to The Batman, so that makes him a perfect choice for the latest episode of Tell It Animated! And it’s a real doozy of an episode.
This channel is pure quality. I hope the creator is having the time of their life making all this happen, and I hope they are making a ton of money on Patreon to keep it going. And, as always, should he ever read this random blog post sharing his video, I vote for Robin as a future entry!
