DC Comics or Marvel: Which Franchise Is Your Favorite?

Superhero movies. They have become an expected delight to look forward to every year. And the two arbitrators behind this movement is DC Comics and Marvel. For decades these franchises have released films that have inspired generations of fans and brought joy to millions and they are continuing to do so. In just a little over a month, Captain Marvel will be hitting theaters and there will surely be plenty of individuals, including me, rolling into theaters to see it. And that’s why I wanted to make this the topic of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy!

DC Comics

When I think of DC Comics the first superhero that comes to mind is Batman but before Michael Keaton made Batman cool in the late 1980s’ there was Christopher Reeves’ iconic portrayal of Superman. I’ve seen Superman maybe once or twice in my younger years and while I don’t remember the film very much I still can grasp in the recesses of my brain the magic of the movie. Specifically, the scene when Superman–to bring Lois Lane back to life–uses his incredible ability to turn back time by flying around the Earth multiple times. You could say my mind was blown!

Here is the Full Cast List of James Gunn’s Reimagining of ‘Suicide Squad’

When I watched Suicide Squad for the first time last year I was immediately struck with the blaring similarities between this anti-hero team and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Like The Guardians of the Galaxy, the Suicide Squad was a bunch of misfits who were tasked with saving the world, but unlike Guardians of the Galaxy, which was helmed by James Gunn’s genius, Suicide Squad was a hot mess of a storyline laced with potential.

When Disney briefly released James Gunn after several inappropriate tweets were unearthed from Gunn’s past Warner Bros. quickly jumped on the opportunity for James Gunn to take over the Suicide Squad sequel. On Friday, James Gunn revealed the new and improved cast for what is now being called The Suicide Squad and of course, I’m here to share the list with you. Enjoy!

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Gets Its First Poster

As you may or may not know, the highly-anticipated sequel to Wonder WomanWonder Woman 1984, was originally set to come out this June but was pushed to next year. While we may not be able to see Diana Prince return to fight the bad guys and inspire the world with her awesomeness it seems that Patty Jenkins is getting us warmed up for this superhero sequel with a surprise poster featuring the film. Check it out.

There’s no doubt that it’s pretty cool looking. The film, of course, is set in the 80s’ and it seems that DC Comics is making sure that’s apparent through the marketing for the movie. Wonder Woman looks absolutely fantastic in her suit of armor…but (and there’s always a but with DC Comics) why is her armor different?

As you can see on this poster her suit of armor looks much different than in the previous DC Comics movies. See here.

Robert Pattinson Is Officially the New Batman

Two weeks ago it was announced that Robert Pattinson was in the runnings to be the new actor to become the Dark Knight. It wasn’t official, however, as he and Nicholas Hoult were in advanced negotiations to play the part.

Today the deal was sealed. Robert Pattinson is our new Batman and I am relieved. I like Nicholas Hoult but I would be petrified to see him as Batman. Let his superhero resumé stick to only including Beast. 🙂

I just wanted to share the good news. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.

‘Aquaman’ At Home

Aquaman came out on Blu-Ray today and after thoroughly enjoying my experience last Christmas I was definitely determined to relive that experience as often as possible. Hence, I bought the Blu-Ray. And I was pleasantly surprised.

While the home experience is nothing like the grandeur of the movie theaters it’s still pretty fantastic. The sound is great, the wow factor of the movie’s more beautiful moments are eye-popping and totally enjoyable on the television screen, and it was just as fun as I remembered.

Is Aquaman the best movie ever made? *chuckles* Definitely not, but it is a fun film with plenty of smile-inducing and extremely pleasing moments.

Now, after seeing the movie a second time there is one blaring mishap of the movie and that is its music. Superhero movies aren’t known for having the best musical scores ever composed but Aquaman‘s score is borderline horrendous.

Every action scene has music that’s grand but falls flat, the emotional moments are accompanied with a cliché piano or something kind of sappy like that, and the songs made for the film could definitely be better, but beyond that this movie is pretty fun.

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