Hello interweb, Nate here! So, the DCEU has been kinda sucking hasn’t it? I mean, Man of Steel sucked, Batman V Superman – while I like it as a guilty pleasure – is plagued with sloppy writing, and Suicide Squad most see as the worst of the DCEU movies. So this year Justice League and Wonder Woman is coming out. Justice League will probably suck, and I’m really hoping Wonder Woman is at least a good movie if not a great one. But one criticism the franchise has been facing over and over again is that they’re rushing the movies out too quickly to catch up to Marvel. Hell, they’ve announced a Nightwing movie when The Batman is still having development issues at the moment! So I was wondering if I was in charge of this whole project, how would I run it? So here’s my idea! When reading this, keep in mind that I’m starting from a clean slate. Meaning I’m pretending Man of Steel, Batman V Superman, and Suicide Squad never happened!
Also keep in mind I’m just focusing on the story aspect at the moment. Not thinking about cast, directors, writers, etc. (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here! So big news just hit! Warner Bros Animation just announced a confirmation that season 3 of Young Justice is in the works! Honestly, when I first saw the news on Facebook I didn’t believe it since the series was canceled roughly 3 years ago and it looked like hopes for a revival was gone. Even after both seasons were released to Netflix I really didn’t think the show had a chance. However, with a combination of Netflix views and fan protests, we finally got a 3rd season! I’m just super excited that this is actually happening and I can’t wait to see where they’re going to go since the second season ended on a tease of Darkseid and they just ended the Blue Beetle arc so the possibilities are out there. So that’s really all I have to say about this, no need to drag this on more than I can. So with that, have an awesome day and vote for [insert random presidential nominee here] for president 2016!
Hello interweb, Nate here. So Saturday was Free Comic Book Day! For those of you who don’t know, FCBD is the first Saturday of every May where comic book publishers selects a few of their comics and gives them out for free. This was actually my first time going to a FCBD event so I didn’t really know what to expect. I originally was planning on getting more titles than I got (such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Avatar, and Pokemon) but it turned out that you where only allowed to get three comics unless you where cosplaying (dressing up as a fictional character, usually from comics or anime/manga) where you could take four. So the comics I ended up getting was: Divergence #1 from DC, and Secret Wars #0 and All-New All-Different Avengers both from Marvel. Since I liked all the comics I got, I decided that I wanted to give them a review. However, because I got 3 comics that I want to review I’m not going to do my usual comic review format just to make it a little quicker. Also, I’m just going to talk about the stories, so don’t be surprise if I don’t mention the art or anything like that. So with that in mind, what did I think about these comics? (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here. Wow, my 100th post. It’s kinda hard to believe that I’ve done 100 of these things. With such a milestone I felt like I should do something special. Originally I was going to do a countdown but I decided against that as that would be too obvious. So I wanted to do something different from my past specials. So I decided to review a comic. So why this comic? Well as most of you know by now, the New 52 is ending with Convergence and as such I decided to read arguably the New 52’s best known story: Justice League: Origins (consisting of #1-6 of the New 52’s Justice League). Of course since this story consists of six issues this will be similar to my Civil War review however this does not have as many characters so I’m not going to put these characters in alphabetical order or anything like that. So with that said, let’s do this! (more…)
