Why Ben Affleck has officially moved on from Batman

The DCEU has had its issues. That is putting it lightly, but there have been some bright spots with the releases of Wonder Woman and Aquaman gaining praise from fans and critics. Another of these was Ben Affleck's portra...

Everything from NYCC, cosplay, and Bowsette

After a few days of recovery, it's time to wrap up our coverage of New York Comic-Con. Between all of the running around most of us did from the Javitz Center to Madison Square Garden for the big panels, the Flixist crew is pretty damned ti...

The DC Extended Universe needs to die

I remember back in 2013 when Man of Steel came out. It was meant to be the big return of the Blue Boyscout to theatres after 2006's groan-worthy Superman Returns. After its release, people were split on whether or not Ma...

We got 4 hot DC Animated movies coming in 2019

Animated DC movies, officially called DC Universe Animated Original Movies (that's dumb), are DC's hidden gems. Each direct-to-DVD release is less than 90 minutes, rakes in around $5 million in sales, and  retells classic DC comic...

There will never be a Zack Snyder cut of Justice League

San Diego Comic Con has only just started, but DC has had one hell of a busy day yesterday. Between announcing concrete plans for its streaming service, showing off the edge lord trailer of Titans, and giving us some more details ...

CW adding to Batman bonanza with new Batwoman show

One of my most vivid memories as a 6-year-old was watching an episode of the oft-overlooked The New Batman Adventures. Titlled “Over the Edge,” a supremely scary looking Scarecrow smacks Batgirl off a skyscraper, causing her t...

Batwoman is coming to the Arrowverse in next crossover event

DC can't get its ass out its head (yes, I said that backwards, that's how backwards they are) with its movies, but on the TV side of things the "Arrowverse" has been solidly good as a whole. By taking some of the smaller DC characters, CWin...

Review: Batman Ninja

While the MCU has dominated theatres for the past decade, DC has been putting out a constant stream of animated movies. Most of their animated movies are adaptations of classic DC stories and if I'm being perfectly honest here, most of them...

Tribeca Review: Braid

Leading up to the Tribeca Film Festival, this was the one movie that I was looking forward to the most. Just by doing my initial research on the premise, two women try to rob their insane, delusional friend who forces them to play a game, I...

Rumor: Jake Gyllenhaal wanted for Batman

(Note: I'm referring to Gyllenhal's creepy turn in the film Nightcrawler, not the X-Men character. I suppose explaining a joke means it's not a good one, but here we are.) It's been pretty clear that Ben Affleck hasn't been having as m...

Review: Justice League

Warning: I'm going to discuss a thing that is obvious, but some may consider a spoiler so don't read if you've been in a cave for the entire marketing campaign of this movie.  Well they did it, folks. DC made two movies in a row that d...

The Joker origin movie is going to be totally dark and real

One of the best parts of Heath Ledger's joker was that we had no idea where he came from. He routinely made up origin stories in both a fantastic way to define the character as un-moored chaos, but also a commentary on how overblown we are ...

Justice League actually looks pretty good in its SDCC trailer

Justice League is in the middle of a huge mess right now. DC Comics and Warner Bros. are tooling and re-tooling elements, Ben Affleck was almost phased out of the Batman role (before confirming he'd be staying on), and the film's current ad...
