The One True Superman

Tip of the hat to DC, for figuring out a way to give fans on both sides of the argument what they wanted, to let them have their cake and eat it too. Superman can be seen as a perfect depiction of the larger DC universe, and of the reactions of the readers to the… Continue reading The One True Superman

Wonder Woman’s Pits

I should begin this tirade by stating that I am myself a feminist, if we are going to go by the original, dictionary definition of the word. Originally, to say you are a proponent of feminism meant simply that you believe men and women are deserving of equal treatment, in the workplace and in society.… Continue reading Wonder Woman’s Pits

Iron Fisting

I didn’t catch the new Netflix/Marvel series IRON FIST, so I can’t comment on its quality or lack thereof. Apparently it didn’t go over so well. I don’t honestly care; comics-related television and movie projects are a dime a dozen. We have reached and surpassed oversaturation. The TV shows and movies can’t ALL be good,… Continue reading Iron Fisting

The Razzies deserve a Razzie

The Oscars lost credibility forever on the night a Woody Allen flick beat out STAR WARS for Best Picture of the Year. A film that completely reinvented popular culture and changed moviemaking for all time. And a Woody Allen comedy. Yeah, which one is REALLY the most deserving of recognition? And then there’s Oscar’s refusal… Continue reading The Razzies deserve a Razzie

HELLBOY 3 is NOT happening

A couple’a three weeks back, I reported that the long-awaited second HELLBOY sequel was likely in preproduction, as writer/director Guillermo del Toro had conducted a “poll” on his Twitter page to see how many fans were interested, and as I pointed out, he wouldn’t have mentioned it at all if some progress hadn’t already been… Continue reading HELLBOY 3 is NOT happening

Bane vs. Batman. Again.

This, in my (not so) humble yet educated opinion, is exactly what the BATMAN comics need right now. To my mind, there has never been a satisfactory rematch betwixt Batman and Bane. Batman never really got even for bane snapping his spine way back in the 90s during the KNIGHTFALL event/publicity stunt. For all the… Continue reading Bane vs. Batman. Again.

Affleck out as Batman?

He’s officially out as the DIRECTOR of the forthcoming BATMAN movie. That he will not be playing the character, either, is just a rumor at this point, and probably a rumor is all it will remain, despite all the online prognostication to the contrary. Nor is it necessarily a bad thing that Affleck is stepping… Continue reading Affleck out as Batman?

Give Hellboy a hand!

File this one under “It’s about time!” It seems that visionary director Guillermo del Toro is ready to move on the long-awaited HELLBOY 3. He posted on Twitter, posing the question: “Informal poll (let’s see how many votes we get in 24 hours) Hellboy III” and gave responders the choice between a simple “yes” and… Continue reading Give Hellboy a hand!
