Ian and I are going to be breaking down what we thought of this week’s mid season return of The Walking Dead. This is a decent review so kick back, slip off your boots, light’em if you got’em & Enjoy!
Okay am I going to far with the whole Much Ado About Nothing slant? It’s a comedy that has it’s heavy drama ties as all good Shakespeare plays have. Is this going to be the DC Comics comedy of errors with it’s own fandom? Are DC Comics not doing a reboot, not doing a rebuid (well…) or not doing another big Event across all their books. No. They’re said to be bringing back the legacy to their DC Comics universe. Mixing from the past & present. Huh.
Well, let’s listen to head creative DC Comics Mafia guys, Geoff Johns here:
Okay, I’m back to do Solit’s for upcoming Marvel & DC Comics comic books. I’ll pick out a few books & leave my own comments. Enjoy.
“I’m gonna knock you out! Mama said knock you out!”
A new LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens an original animated series set to premiere this Summer. Add to that a series of animated shorts called LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises starring Poe Dameron & C-3P0.
Check out the new Daredevil Season 2 trailer (part 1) on Netflix which introduces both The Punisher & Elektra!
While the Force has certainly been felt since Star Wars came back to theaters in December of last year, it only seemed natural that we’d get some video games related to the film. So far, the closet we had was Jakku map in Star Wars Battlefront but have you felt it? There’s been an awakening…. Of another Lego game from Tell Tales, the developers behind previous Lego games from Star Wars to Harry Potter.
Cape fever doesn’t seem to have an expire date, it won’t slow down even when some shows just aren’t at their previous peak (*cough* Arrow *cough*). We’re on the fourth season of Arrow, the second for Flash and there’s been some stumbling with Constantine but hey, he showed up on Arrow for nice cameo. The boldest idea, at least in terms of the current DC led shows as seen on teen drama central CW, is the concept of a scaled back Avengers deal in term of team unit but with roster of characters that appeared either on Arrow or Flash.
This would be Legends of Tomorrow which features a ragtag group of heroes/rogues led by Rory Willi- Wait… Rip Hunter as he assembles your FAVOURITE CW SHOW characters to fight against that guy from the last Arrow/Flash crossover, Vandal Savage. It’s kinda of a big deal that a show has this many leading actors/actresses despite the fact that such non-franchise scifi shows like the excellent BBC series Misfits or Being Human has managed to juggle teen drama, power tropes and shuffles through their cast to rotate out old cast members when their character arcs finish up (or in some cases, when actresses act like shit and are forced to leave the show) to transition in some new faces to replace the dearly departed fan favourites or not so fav in some cases.
From magic wielding to techie gadget characters, there’s so many characters that DC could lend out to the CW to use even if some of them might be under embargo status or the budget wouldn’t allow them to shine in their full comic book glory, we can still dream.
This is a great short movie I just saw, check out the trailer and see if you can find the short movie on TV / cable.
