Creative Close-Up: The Future of the DC Extended Universe

10.30.18 The folks at Warner Bros. and DC have decided to push back the release date of WW84, the upcoming sequel to 2017’s success Wonder Woman. Now they are pushing back production and filming of The Flash standalone film and that won’t be released till 2021! What is WB/DC doing?  I wasn’t too happy with the change of WW84, but I can understand why they’re pushing the release date. The first Wonder Woman film was released in June and did fantastic at the box office. The release date has been pushed back three times. Previously the date was set for December 13, 2019, then November 1, 2019, but now the official date is June 5, 2020. The magic month of June gave them box office success the first time, why not try it again? Not only that but if the date was November 2019, the Amazon Princess would be in competition with the new Terminator film, then Charlie’s Angels (why!?)…I can only see WW84 in competition with Terminator, not really. This was a financial business …

Film Review: Justice League

November 20 / 17 Hey everyone! Internet acting a fool today, but the devil’s a lie! Anyway, I went to see Justice League over the weekend. Loved it, but I do have a few things to gripe about. Yes, I loved Justice League. I grew up watching the cartoon as a kid and now seeing Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and the rest of the crew brought a happy smile to my face. I wasn’t sure if DC was going to bring Justice League to the big screen at all. A few things to gripe about. Why in the world would DC cut some scenes that were in the trailer, but not in the film? Why? We don’t want to linger on each of the character’s origins, but at least give us a small glimpse as to how The Flash and Cyborg got their powers. I can only hope that when the film comes out on Blue-ray/DVD and digital, we can get an uncut look at the movie. The villain, Steppenwolf was just weak. Ciaran Hinds …

Shadowbox Review of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

April 4 / 16 Afternoon! Trust that the weekend has been kind to everyone. Of course you guys know that this is a film review, but don’t hold your breath too much. There won’t be a film review post all the time. I would need help with that department. I’m only doing films that interests me and DC and Marvel have whipped up films for a long while….mostly Marvel. DC has put Superman and Batman on the big screen, but there are doing some catching up in the DC Extended Universe. I finally saw Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.   Like a few or maybe more comic book die hards, I’ve been waiting to see this for quite some time. As most of you know, the critics have been pretty harsh with the film, but the box office numbers really did the talking. Ok….the film starts off two years after Superman’s (Henry Cavill) battle with General Zod, which almost left the city of Metropolis in shambles. People were left hurt, angry, even helpless. Billionaire …
