Wonder Woman 1984

This image released by Warner Bros. Pictures shows Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in a scene from "Wonder Woman 1984." The film isn’t skipping theaters or moving to 2021, but it is altering course.

There’s no need to worry about the DC Universe getting too dark for the kids. The studio goes full Super Friends with Wonder Woman 1984. You can’t blame director Patty Jenkins, though. The target audience for WW84 was barely born when 2007’s Spider-Man 3 ended with the main characters having a group therapy session. The folks at Marvel moved away… Continue reading Wonder Woman 1984

The Kitchen

As a big fan of DC Comic’s Vertigo imprint and especially the short eight-part comic book series The Kitchen, I was extremely excited to see a live-action theatrical release of the story.

If you ask any true comic book nerd, Shazam! is the original/real Captain Marvel. When DC licensed Captain Marvel from Fawcett Comics in 1972 they had to change the comic book name to Shazam! because Marvel had already trademarked their own superhero named Captain Marvel in 1967 (assholes). So, it may be a tad bit… Continue reading Shazam!
