Shazam! has me excited about DC movies again

It's no secret the output of the DC Extended Universe has been less than exemplary. Yes, the movies have all made money, but only Wonder Woman has established itself as a box-office, fan, and critical darling. After the disaster that was Ju...

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...

New Venom trailer is better than last

Remember that first Venom trailer? The one without Venom in it, that looked awful? I sure do. I've been a fan of Spider man and his cavalcade of villains for a long time, but I was in no way excited by Sony's first showing of their attempt ...

Cathy Yan to direct Margot Robbie in Harley Quinn-led film

At this point, it's difficult to joke about how many DC movies Warner Bros. is green-lighting when there are so many damn movies they're green-lighting. But here we go again, this time with what looks like to be another Harley Quinn-related...

Incredible 2 has an incredibles new trailer

People are pretty amped up for Incredibles 2, and its pretty easy to see why. Pixar almost never delivers a bad movie, and they seem pretty immune to sequalitis (the disease that makes most sequels worse than the first film). In fact aside...

Shazam! movie logo announces DCEU still exists

WB and DC are still adamant that they can make the DCEU work, and Shazam! is their next attempt at it. The difference is that they're actually doing something different with it this time. The film is supposed to be a drastic departure ...

Joss Whedon exits Batgirl film, "didn't have a story"

Warner Bros. and DC seem to enjoy announcing a new superhero movie every other day, and it's no surprise that most of them will never actually make it to the big screen. Enter Joss Whedon's Batgirl project, the latest casualt...

The first Incredibles 2 trailer is here

We've all had to wait wait a long time for this, but it's finally here. Incredibles 2 has a full trailer full of incredible sequel things. Well, mostly just parenting. Of course that's what made the The Incredibles so g...

Review: Black Panther

The fact of the matter is you don't see movies like Black Panther made. I'm not talking about the groundbreaking facts you already know about the movie: its almost entirely black cast, with an almost entirely black creative team l...

Marvel gathers together all their heroes for an epic photo

Believe it or not the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been around for 10 years now if we consider the universe being established when Marvel Studios was founded by Marvel to start making their own movies. It's hard to begrudge Marvel doing a...

First Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer has a giant Pez dispenser

Ant-Man is easily Marvel's most underrated film. Not the Edgar Wright classic we were sure to get (still bitter), but people don't give it the props it deserved. The movie was a little heist film in the middle of a giant Marvel univer...

Greatest American Hero reboot is coming to ABC

It looks like the Greatest American Hero reboot that was being shopped around is moving forward, with ABC ordering the show to pilot. That means they'll at least be making a pilot, and most likely the beginning of episodes. The new ver...

Best look at Ant-Man and the Wasp in... Ant-Man and the Wasp

I think of all the Marvel films Ant-Man is the least appreciated. The studio made a fun little heist movie that sat outside most of the continuity of the universe, and as such it didn't generate quite as much hype as other films. Hopef...

Michael De Luca joins production team of Suicide Squad 2

As we all know the DC Cinematic Universe is in trouble. Despite the fantastic Wonder Woman, Justice Leagueu fell flat with critics and audiences. So DC began a shift in those making the films, moving producers around and bringing in fr...

CW releases new origin trailer for Black Lightning

The CW's Arrowverse shows have varied in quality throughout the seasons, but they've always had a certain charm even when it's not their best run. They definitely seem to understand the DC universe better than the movies do. Maybe they get...

Check out the first teaser for The Incredibles 2

There isn't much to go on in this teaser, honestly, but it does confirm a few things. Baby Jack Jack has a couple of new powers, and the Incredibles theme still pulls at my heartstrings the way it used too.  The sequel will ...

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...

Review: Thor: Ragnarok

While I like the Marvel Cinematic Universe overall, I've never been that interested in the Thor movies. I love the Walt Simonson run on The Mighty Thor, but the previous live-action films featuring the God of Thunder never really appealed t...

Our first look at the new Hellboy

Hellboy is coming back and from everything we know so far it's looking  looking really dark, very bloody, and bit less campy than Guillermo Del Toro's take on the indie comic favorite. Also, no Ron Perlman, which is sad, but ...
