A Rundown of the Disappointing DC Fandome

DC Fandome happened yesterday and man was it boring! Last year’s version of the digital DC Comics celebration event felt so much funner but this year’s version, broken down into four hours to reveal everything new coming to the franchise, was absolutely terrible. And it wasn’t just because the shows looked awful or the comics didn’t seem interesting. Even the content for the new movies coming next year or in 2023 seemed lacking. So yeah, it wasn’t a very fun Saturday in the DC Fandome department but I’m here to talk about what we got. So here we go.

Black Adam

I was excited for Black Adam and I still believe this movie is going to be awesome, specifically with the idea of so many incredibly powerful characters being introduced in this film like Aldris Hodge’s Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate, Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone, and Noah Centineo’s Atom Smasher. However, this first look compilation featuring behind-the-scenes tidbits and about 30 seconds of nothing was just…annoying.

Last year the cast of characters was already announced and yet this year we still didn’t get a full look at these actors as their characters. That just doesn’t make sense to me! It’s been a whole year and we still can’t see what Aldris Hodges looks like as Hawkman yet?!

And the first footage from the movie was 100% not that great. I get it. Dwayne Johnson was born to play Black Adam, and I actually agree with him, but for this movie to be really special I’m going to need this to be a different type of superhero movie experience.

One where we follow the story of Black Adam, an ultra-powerful villain who has to take on a team of heroes consisting of Hawkman, Cyclone, Atom Smasher, and Doctor Fate. And then, throughout the film, he gradually kills them off and ends up the surviving baddie at the end of the movie. A baddie ready to take on Shazam in, most likely, Shazam 3.

I hope that’s what this movie is all about because if it’s anything else I’m going to be royally disappointed.

All Hail the New Batman!

Batman, he’s a character that is rebooted at least once every decade since Michael Keaton’s portrayal of the character in 1989. And with each iteration comes the fans’ searing disapproval or groveling praise and Robert Pattinson’s take on the dark knight is making fans of the character very, very happy indeedy.

Pattinson has been beloved by pop culture nerds for a while, whether we’re talking about his role in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as Cedric Diggory or his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight movies. But over the years, he’s strayed away from the pop culture scene, proving himself to be a formidable actor in other movies. Now he’s playing the role of his life and it looks like he’s going to be quite the treat to behold. Check out the first teaser released last night for The Batman.

Gritty, dark, and so brutal, this Batman looks like he’s on a mission and you don’t want to be in his way. Matt Reeves announced that they only got 25-30% into filming so I honestly expected to see maybe twenty seconds of live-action looks at the characters…not a full-blown teaser!

The internet is roiling over this brand new look at the Batman and I am just so impressed. Plus, his new saying, “I’m vengeance” instead of “I’m Batman” was an extra cool touch.

I was already a bit excited about this movie but now I’m positively over the moon. People are already clamoring for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker to meet Pattinson’s Batman and if that did happen I think it would be one of the greatest things to ever happen in comic book movie history.

Here’s the first poster for The Batman.

Gosh, I’m ready to see this movie next year.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a marvelous day.

It’s DCFandome Day!

Today is a special day for pop culture fans and because of that, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the online convention and its surprises live later on today so, if you’re looking for my next trailer and chapter in Captain America: Secret War those will resume tomorrow.

I’m so excited to see what’s up with Wonder Woman 1984, The Batman, The Suicide Squad, and #TheSnyderCut of Justice League. Oh, and we can’t forget Black Adam. I am so ready!

I thank you for reading and I’ll see you later.

James McAvoy Could’ve Played The Riddler in the Upcoming Batman Movie!

There are lots of actors but there are only several actors that stick out to me among the pack as performers who have delivered some truly outstanding pieces of work.

These actors are: Tom Hanks, Christian Bale, Josh Brolin, Joaquin Phoenix, Russel Crowe, Heath Ledger, Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Denzel Washington, and Morgan Freeman. However, after the past few weeks and getting the chance to see James McAvoy’s performances in the X-Men films as well as Split and Glass, I have assembled him alongside the likes of these exceptional actors because, despite the fact that he’s only been nominated for a Golden Globe for the romantic drama Atonement, the man can act!

Watching him take on a role in Split that features a character who has twenty-three! different personalities within himself could’ve been a disaster. Instead, we get to see him shine as he impeccably switches characters on the drop of a dime just by changing the way he sits, the way his eyebrows crinkle, or the way his voice sounds. He ranges from stern and annoying as Dennis to kind and almost motherly as Patricia and then really goofy and naive as nine-year-old Hedwig and then absolutely terrifying as his horrific alter-ego, The Beast. And this happens all while retaining the idea that Kevin, the person the twenty-three personalities are trying to protect, lies deep within.

Yesterday, I was watching ScreenRant (click the link to discover James McAvoy’s 10 Best Movies According to IMDb) on Youtube and I learned that one of the comic book characters McAvoy wanted to play was The Riddler in the upcoming Batman movie. Instead, the role would go to this guy. Continue reading James McAvoy Could’ve Played The Riddler in the Upcoming Batman Movie!

Zoe Kravitz Will Play Catwoman in ‘The Batman’

In case you forgot (or didn’t know) Zoe Kravitz, known for her roles in films and television series like Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Big Little Lies, will join Matt Reeves’ take on the iconic superhero, Batman, in 2021’s The Batman as Catwoman. Yes, Catwoman.

Fantastic actresses like Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway have brought this character to life in dazzling ways. In fact, Catwoman is one of my favorite comic book characters because of their remarkable portrayals of this anti-hero.

I can’t wait to see how Zoe Kravitz takes this character into her own and creates her own iconic rendition of the feline jewel thief.
