DC Entertainment will now give Bill Finger official credit for his work in film and television projects based on his creations, including Batman v Superman. This is a long overdue honor, and is still incomplete. Writer Bill Finger needs to be credited in EVERY Batman comic, should be credited on every television show, every cartoon,… Continue reading The OTHER Creator of BATMAN
Man of Steel and Watchmen director Zack Snyder responds to Steven Spielberg’s comments on superhero movies and addresses the rumor mill around the DCU. I’ve actually been a little worried about this myself. Commenting in the past on the Hollywood beast’s inability to generate any original ideas, lamenting its tendency to simply mimic what is… Continue reading Comic Book Movies Going the Way of the Dodo?
and it’s exactly who you think it is. Well, I called it. If you don’t believe me, do a quick search for my previous article on this site concerning the identity of the “Totally Awesome” Hulk. Come on, people, was this even a surprise? I can’t be the only one who saw it coming ten… Continue reading THE AMAZING AMADEUS
It isn’t news that Hollywood is incapable of actual thought. “Hollywood” is a mass organism, a parasite, sort of like a Portuguese Man-O-War, a composite animal, a siphonophore (loving the word “siphon” makes up this name, as it’s so apropos for the point I want to make here), a cluster of millions of micro-celled organisms… Continue reading Scraping the Bottom of the Barrel
Two high profile stories ran on Bleeding Cool yesterday, that laid out certain woes at DC Comics. When DC Comics chose to wipe the slate clean and start over back in 2011, canceling all their titles and erasing their established continuity, relaunching all the books as first issues and creating an all new, all different… Continue reading THE NEW 52—Is the Fat Lady singing?
After all the build up I share Clark’s emotions at the end of the issue. Not with Lois Lane and her galactically stupid error in judgement – but with DC. The fanbase is divided over the new direction the SUPERMAN comics have taken, as indeed they have been since the launch of DC’s “New 52”… Continue reading SUPERMAN is a broken man—and I’m loving it.
He’s getting just old enough for this s–t. Hey, I have an idea! Let’s replace Bruce Wayne as Batman! That’s NEVER been done before! (Except for a couple’a dozen times, but nobody remembers any of those. Comics fans have lousy memories, right?) Then we’ll put some guy in armor and let him play Batman, until… Continue reading Replacing Batman—Didn’t they try that already?
Marvel’s biggest event just got bigger. Marvel Comics’ mega-event SECRET WARS is now set to conclude at the end of the year with a bombastic NINTH issue. This is good news for fans, as the hordes of geekdom have been almost universal in their praise for this series. In case you’re one of the three… Continue reading SECRET WARS expands!
Doom is a genius in physics, robotics, cybernetics, genetics, weapons technology, bio-chemistry, and time travel. He is also self-taught in the mystic arts. Doom is a natural leader, a brilliant strategist, and a sly deceiver. Last week I pontificated on the abysmal failure of the latest FANTASTIC FOUR movie. Which reminded me of the two… Continue reading ALL HAIL DOOM
What did Josh Trank do?That was the question people were asking all over social media on Thursday night after the director of Fantastic Four tweeted — and then quickly deleted — a message slamming his own movie on the eve of its debut. Director Josh Trank wants us all to know it’s not his fault that FANTASTIC FOUR sucks… Continue reading Fantastic Fiasco
