DC’s Come Up: Who’s Going to Save The Universe

These last few weeks have been big for the DC Universe, you had Arrow, The Flash, and Super girl all have there season finales, and Gotham having its season finale this week. But we can not forget this past week The Wonder Woman finally hit theaters, and has been a big hit far and wide all over. Diana aka Wonder Woman has been on everyone’s social media feeds, all over TV and just think about it, this movie barely got any marketing until these last few weeks. You barely saw any Wonder woman posters or TV spots. Then the big controversy of the Women’s only movie screening for this movie that had many men screaming in annoying agony of the screening.  I not only want to share my thoughts on the movie after seeing it Thursday night before the worldwide premiere, but I also want to share my thoughts on Arrow, The Flash and Super girl how there season finales will change the course of the new seasons that are to come.

Before going to see Wonder Woman, everyone questioned whether or not this movie could save the DC cinematic universe, some believed it because they’ve been long term fans of this character, some people like me who loved Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman believed she would do excellent, and there’s other people who still had a big question mark on this movie. For one something happened that we rarely have seen in the past with movie screenings, an all woman screening. After this announcement and hearing men couldn’t even at least sit in the theater, they took to twitter and all social media outlets to voice their opinions. To me I think this was great advertisement not because of the men getting pissed, but the simple fact how many people men and women wanted to see this movie. I mean even for a Thursday night when I went to see the movie I did not expect to see as many men in the theater or even that packed to say the least. I knew going into this movie, I would not see any montages to the old 70’s wonder woman; the theme playing in my head as I bought my ticket… “All The world is waiting for you, and the power you possess” but I knew I was excited for something that was long awaited.

Justice League Dark: The Animated Movie

Just Recently I had the opportunity to check out one of the most anticipated DC Universe Animated movie this year, Justice League Dark. Now I do not know much about the branch of the Dark arts section of Justice except for two characters such as John Constantine, still mad they cancelled the tv show, but also Zatanna, and also I have seen Etrigan off and on. Now many of us we were hit with a trailer for this movie during comic-con which had the internet and all the comic book fans buzzing. This movie definitely got me excited because the trailer right off the bat shows you, the Justice League is not going to be apart of this mission, that it will take other Justice League operatives and people with special abilities to take on this task,will show you the trailer, and we will get back to this.

This movie does have an R rating, but there is no need for it except for a few adult jokes, and maybe more blood then usual, but I would like to say I do enjoy that Comic book movies more and more are getting that R rated feel, you can tell it lets the creators branch out a little more and even give each character more dialogue to work with. Before going into this I was already going in knowing I wouldn’t see as many regular justice league characters, but this movie will surprise you, but in a good way.

The Killing Joke: The Last Laugh

So I know this post is super super late, but I finally got to watch “Batman: The Killing Joke” the other night, and I would just like to give some feedback on what I thought of it. Now I know everyone probably by now has seen the movie and has their own opinion, but I felt I needed to say how I felt. I’ll even throw in some spoilers, even though people have probably read every review possible on this movie, and what every other person thought of it, even myself included while you’re reading this. When we look back, this movie was honestly one of the most anticipated animated movies in a long time. Everyone from the regular graphic novel Killing Joke lovers, to the people who have been keeping an a close ear to the forums anticipated this to be something special. Finding out this film was going to be an R rated animated movie, everyone thought  maybe we’ll see more or hear more cuss words and see a lot blood and violence. Or maybe even Joker will be more violent then usual , almost like we’ll see the true nature of the joker.

 

Now when this trailer hit airwaves, everyone was like ok this is gonna be amazing, this is  gonna be dope, just seeing this famous battle between Batman and Joker, even though we’ve seen it a million times, we still love to come back for more. I know when I was this trailer I was like ok this is really great; an animated film for a comic I’ve always heard about, never read, but every time I went to a comic book store or just looked at the Batman comics I would see the Killing Joke cover, and say to myself that’s a really dope cover. Never knowing why I didn’t really read it, I might have skimmed through it or because it had the plastic cover on it I just didn’t touch it, you know how some stores do. But besides that; I just thought this is a great year for this movie to come out with Suicide squad coming around the same time, DC is making a lot of moves, then the reviews came in.
