“I TOLD YOU SO!: ‘GOTHAM CITY SIRENS’ IS OFFICIALLY IN THE WORKS!”

I. Told. You. So! It feels so good to get something right. It doesnt happen often, but when i do get something right.. Ho boy! It feels so good! 

So.. it has been reported by ‘Hollywood Reporter’ that WB/DC Has officially proclaimed that the stand alone Harley Quinn film WILL be a “GOTHAM CITY SIRENS” movie. That, is also its title, and Suicide Squad director David Ayer.. 

Will be at the helm of this film. 

As we already know.. The Birds of Prey are going to be in the film as well.. 

And Marggot Robbie is returning as Harley Quinn 

Nothing else, concerning this particular movie has been announced as of yet. Besides the Title, who’s directing and What it is gonna be. I’ll try and fill you in as soon as anything drops. 

IN OTHER NEWS: 

DC/WB also announced that Will Smith will be returning as Deadshot for a Stand alone Deadshot movie! No official release date has been set, nor has a production date been announced. ALSO! Justice League 2 has been pushed back to allow space for Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie which should be ready to go in front of the cameras in the next year or so?! I think?! Maybe late 2017 they start on that.. We’ll see. 

That all i got, What do you folks think about all this news?  You excited for the Gotham City Sirens movie?.. 

So, until next time folks.. I TOLD YOU SO!! 😃😄👍

“‘BIRDS OF PREY’ CONFIRMED FOR ‘HARLEY QUINN’ SOLO FILM!”

Just before the release of ‘SUICIDE SQUAD’ This past August, WB/DC announced that a Harley Quinn film could be in the pipeline.. (for my thoughts on that *click link below*) 

http://wp.me/p5F7r8-sO
Then, after the success of the film, the studio made it official, Harley Quinn will get her solo movie.. (More of my thoughts in following link..) 

http://wp.me/p5F7r8-AL

NOW! As of earlier this week, WB/DC announced that indeed, The Birds Of Prey will appear in the Harley Quinn Movie! 

(Who has two thumbs and said this will happen, a long time ago?… 👍👍 THIS GUY!)

Which makes me wonder.. What Birds Of Prey lineup should we get?! Heres my personal suggestions.. 

BATGIRL (Barbara Gordon) 

She does not have to be Oracle in the Movie Universe.. Robbing us of a proper Barabar Gordon Batgirl would be a mistake in my opinion. 

BLACK CANARY 

Obviously. You cant have the Birds without the Canary! 

HUNTRESS

Nuff said, really. 

And just to really spice things up a bit.. Add in..

ZATANNA 

We already got Enchantress in the DCEU, if Harley comes across Zatanna, she could be like.. “Great, another Magic Lady!” 

Lastly.. I would really appreciate a cameo or introduction of Kate Kane into the DCEU..

(aka) BATWOMAN 

She would be an awesome addition in to the universe. (just my opinion) 

I’ll try and be more on point with news like this, as it breaks.Heres hoping my guessing right streak continues when they announce The Gotham City Sirens will show up.. 

So what do you folks think? Leave your comments below and please follow and or subscribe. Thank You. 
So, Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“NEW YORK COMIC CON 2016! ‘REVIEW'”


Cant say I’ve experianced a whole week of NYCC 2016.. But i can review the day i was there! 

Thursday! Opening day.. A glorious day. The day you get a lay of the land, if you had a longer time to stay over the four day weekend. 

(NYCC ’16 Program Magazine)

This year marked my 4th year going to NYCC. This year being a very.. Odd year, with the whole inclusion of “Fan Verification”. By far the dumbest idea.. EVER! 

Okay. Maybe I am being just tad bit harsh. It wasnt a dumb idea. But it could have been less stressful on those of us who really wanted to go to comic con. “Fan Verification” was established to prevent “Ticket Scalpers” and “Scam Artists” who sell bull shit tickets online. However.. This “Fan Verification” did not do what it set out to do. Upon our arrival to NYCC, we were greeted by Ticket Scalpers. “Tickets! Tickets! Tickets for sale!” Right in front of the Events workers and patroling police officers. Seriously.. Right. In. Front. Of. Them! These crooks are ruining everything. 

So thats that. But on the other hand, everything was hunky dorey. As always we started our day with some ‘Kevin Smith and The Comic Book Men!’

Got to see some exclusive scenes for the upcoming season. (which premiers today! I am writing this on Sunday, October 23) Got to see the crew. Walt, Bryan, Ming and Mike. Hung around for the Q&A part of the show. And then we moved on to the show floor. Where we got a look at DC’s Latest Animated Original Movie, “BATMAN: RETURN OF THE CAPED CRUSADERS” 

Got to see the living legend himself, Adam West! 

The Show Floor was great as well..

Thats right.. I saw Neal Adams himself. 

The Cosplays were fantastic as well, 

Got the Reverse Flash to stand still long enough for a picture.

Best Jessica Jones cosplay of the whole day!

Fantastic Green Arrow cosplay right here! 

Saved the best for last..

We also got a look at the “Wonder Woman” booth. Which featured the Costumes from the Movie..

They even had the original costume from the 70’s TV Show.. 

My Most favorite booth to go visit, is the “SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES” Booth. Showing off their upcoming LINEUP of Statues and Figures coming later this year and 2017..

“KOTOBUKIYA” Had an equally empresive display as well, 

All in all, this Years Comic Con was great from start to finish. Cant wait for 2017 to mark my 5th anniversary of attending. Seriously cant wait. 

I figure this isn’t much of a “Review” persay. But more of a look back at what i saw. 

Hope you enjoyed checking this out. So.. Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“IT’S OFFICIAL! HARLEY QUINN GETS HER OWN MOVIE!”

It was announced the other day that WB Pictures made it official, official that a Suicide Squad spinoff will be in the works. And it will be a Harley Quinn Movie! 

Margot Robbie’s portrayal of the character was, in fact, the clear stand out from the whole film. Besides Will Smith’s DEADSHOT. So it comes at no surprise that they would go for a solo Harley film. 

However! Its a little hard to believe, in my opnion, that it will only be a Harley Film. I wouldnt be at all surprised that in the coming weeks or months, as WB continues to work on the project, It’ll be announced that it will actually be a Gotham City Sirens movie.

Allow me to elaborate.. Its most likely safe to assume that WB/DC would want to use more recent comic book source material in order to construct the story. The most recent work, is The New 52 run of Harley Quinn. Written and illustrated by Amanda Connor and Jimmy Palmiiotti.

Which, taking under consideration WB’s current movie track record, would be a bad idea! 

The New 52 run of Harley Quinn, essentially made her DC’s version of Deadpool! She knew she was a comic book character. She broke the 4th wall. She converses with a stuffed half robot beaver. She was ultra violent and funny. They made her a Female Deadpool. 

If they were to follow this route.. It would be a bad choice in WB’s part. Fans would acuse them of ripping off the deadpool movie. 

Granted, Suicide Squad presented a very slightly different version of Harley. But the potential of a Deadpool esq veesion of her is there. 

The Best and most possible choice for a Harley Spin Off movie would be the creation of The Gotham City Sirens! 

With Harley Quinn being the spine of the story arc. Perhaps her story would force her in to contact with Catwoman. Getting them arrested in the process and then meeting Poison Ivy later on in the film. And maybe The Joker could be the real main villain in this.. 

We could even see Batgirl be the pursing hero (maybe Batman)

We could also maybe see The Birds Of Prey make an apperance as well.. 

Perhaps they join together to fight Joker at the end! 

It could be like an awesome ‘Thelma and Louise’ style story with kick ass action in it. 

Cast the characters of Catwoman, Ivy, Batgirl and the other Birds of Prey properly, craft a great story and they could have a major hit on their hands.

Im looking forward to it nontheless. Weather its a Harley or a GCS movie, im excited and i want to see it! 

What do you folks think? Let me know your thoughts..

So, until next time.. Peace Out!

“SUICIDE SQUAD”: SPOILER FREE MOVIE REVIEW!

Its Monday! I figured, maybe mondays should be for Movie Reviews.. So here we are!

Friday, August 5th brought us the premier of WB’s and DC’s second attempt (Not Including Man Of Steel) at building their Cinematic Universe, “SUICIDE SQUAD”, Directed by David Ayer and starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Jared Leto, Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Karen Fukuhara, Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje, Jay Hernandez, and Adam Beach.

Well.. What can i say.. *sigh*.. Just when i thought DC/WB couldnt possibly surprise me.. They go and pull this.. AWESOME piece of work out of their hats! Its nowhere near Perfect. But hot damn, they made a really great movie!

THE STORY: Very by the books and probably the movies biggest weak spot. The Story itself is simplistic and straight forward. Meet the team. Problem happens. Assemble the team. Shit goes south. Team pulls together and gets the job done. Kinda that simple really. The plot is very much non important, however.. The Characters themselves, and the actors portrayals of these characters is what carries the film and what makes it work.

THE CAST: Fantastic! This movie wouldnt have worked without them. When Will Smith was originally cast as Deadshot.. I was not on board. At. All.

“Its Will Smith! Theres no way he can be in an ensemble cast. He’ll try to steal the spotlight in the worst way. Will Smith isnt even Will Smith anymore. I wanna see Deadshot, not Will Smith calling himself Deadshot. I want the character, not the actor. This sucks!”

Those Were just a few of the complaints I had. That is until i saw this movie. He did it! Will Smith is now Deadshot! He stood true to the character and didnt take me out of it at all. I saw Deadshot! And i loved it. Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn didnt grab me until about half way in to the start of the film. After that it was smooth sailing. I cant wait for the “GOTHAM CITY SIRENS” Movie with her and whoever else they cast for Ivy and Catwoman. Captain Boomerang.. I was surprised how much i liked him and Jai Courtney’s delivery. Killer Croc.. Looked good.. But.. Kinda waisted, in my opinion. Viola Davis’s Amanda Waller, was spot on! she was the perfect amount of Evil Bitch that the character IS! I want more Waller/Davis in theDCECU!  And lastly.. Jared Leto’s Joker.. He isnt used a lot in the film. ( As it has been reported, a good chunk of his work was edited out.) So.. For me.. I didnt get enough Joker, to actually have an overall like.. “Its up there with Ledger and Nicholson and Hamil” kind of an opinin. But, What i CAN say is… Its a very uniqe approach to the character. While also respecting most of the source material. (its clear he took inspiration from something.. Just cant put my finger on it) But for me.. It was really very good, and i want to see what more he can bring to the role.

What is abundantly clear though, is the chemistry this cast had with each other. It translated very well on the screen and i want them together again. They clearly had fun working together and on this project.

THE POSITIVES: Mainly.. The cast and Characters are the real winners here. They saved the movie. They made it what it was. A fun, entertaining summer comic book film. The Directing was top notch.. So much so, that i am extremly interested in seeng David Ayers directors cut of this movie. If this is what he can do when its not his cut, then who knows how much awesomer his version must be.

THE NEGATIVES: The Plot. The editing. The Narritive. Its amazing how good a film can be, even when the story itself is… Rather Bland and non important. There really wasn’t much of a sense of.. Urgency to the climactic battle. The movie is soley helped by the characters and their stories and interactions with each other. If that didnt work. Then the whole film would have been a disaster. There was a Waste of some characters. Some Felt like they did not need to be there at all, and there was no connection between, us, the viewers and the characters (Namely Croc, Katana, and Enchantress.) The editing was shotty at best. You can clearly see where cuts were made and certain scenes didnt follow each other correctly. Not as terrible of a job as BVS.  But still noticable. WB needs to desperately learn how to trust the filmakers they get for these movies, like David Ayer, and NOT trust the Zack Snyders of the industry. Should have had just a  bit  more Batman though..

OVERALL: Weak script. By the book plot development. Low par editing, and story structure normaly means for a shit-tacular movie. But! massive amounts of Fun, Action and great Character portrayals and character storytelling, (and! May i add, a pretty badass soundtrack) helped make SUICIDE SQUAD the top DC Extended Cinematic Universe film, so far. (We’re waiting on YOU now,  WONDER WOMAN) BVS was a bit of a tumble out of the gate for the DCECU.. But Suicide Squad picked this universe right back up to its feet and got it sprinting!

I give “SUICIDE SQUAD” a score of… ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐💫 7 1/2 out of 10. Not Perfect, But Fucking Fun and Awesome! A Good Time At the Movies!

P.S although not a spoiler.. I will say this.. Stay after the first set of credits. Not the best after credits scene.. But DC/WB are starting to get the idea of how building a universe works.

Well.. That’s my review. Tell me what you think.. And FOR FUCKS SAKE!! SUBSCRIBE TO THE BLOG! Comment below or hit me up on the usual sites. Thx for reading..

So, Until next time Folks… Peace Out!

“ARE WE GETTING A ‘GOTHAM CITY SIRENS’ MOVIE?!?

“BREAKING NEWS!!” Sorta.. Im a little late to the, ‘Breaking News Party’

It was reported earlier yesterday that, DC/WB is in the early stages of developing a SUICIDE SQUAD spinoff, featuring, The One and Only..

HARLEY QUINN! image

Which is.. Just a bit strange for DC/WB Executives to announce so far ahead of Suicide Squad’s release. But perhaps that just shows how confident they are in not only the film, but also Margot Robbie’s performance as Harley.

Lets just hope announcing this so soon doesn’t come back and bite them on the ass!

image

According to reports, Robbie herself approached the heads of DC/WB with the idea and the writer for said project, after delving deep into the comics to research for the role. Not only falling in love with the character, but also the material!

Reports also claim that the planned project would also feature additional female characters, of the Hero and Villain persuasion. Including, but not limited to, Batgirl, The Birds Of Prey and many more that are of yet unnamed. Which could leave many to hope and Assume that the Spin-Off could actually be a..

“GOTHAM CITY SIRENS” Film.. image

IF, that is indeed the case. IF, Suicide Squad is the awesome movie it looks to be. IF, Margot’s Harley is the show stealer it looks to be.. IF! Things don’t go south and DC/WB have to retract their plans.. Then all I can say is…

THIS IS GONNA BE SO FUCKING AWESOME!! I can’t wait! CATWOMAN, POISON IVY, HARLEY QUINN, and possibly THE BIRDS OF PREY! In the same freaking movie!?!

image

What do you folks think? Is it too soon for DC/WB to make this announcement? Would you be excited for a Gotham City Sirens Movie? COMMENT BELOW!

So, Until Next Time Folks… Peace Out!

“WHO SHOULD BE WB/DC’s ‘KEVIN FEIGE'”

Hey there, ladies and gentelnerds. Welcome back. Today I wanna discuss something that really piqued my interest the moment I heard it..

Not too long ago, I was watching “NERDIST NEWS with Jessica Chobot” and she was discussing the topic of who should really be DC/WB’s DCECU ‘Kevin Feige’ (Check out the video below)

A person(s) who knows how to steer a number of productions and tell a cohesive story, AND can put the right talent behind the right project!

ZACK SNYDER.. Is not that man!

image

David S. Goyer?..

image

FUCK NO!! JUST. NO!!

And Chris Nolan says he’s Done with the Superhero Genre.. (Until they back up that Money Truck in to his driveway) So he’s pretty much out of the question..

SO! Who should WB/DC Chairman/Executive Kevin Tsujihara image

Choose to be his ‘Kevin Feige’?!

Possibly, Someone(s) Who have history with the company?..image

Perhaps, Someone(s) Who Know the material?..image

Maybe, Someone(s) Who have been in the business long enough to know how to organize a story, and know how to properly use Talent!?..

image

Or Perhaps, Someone(s) Who are genuinely TALENTED!?.. image

HMMM.. Who!?.. Who! should be overlooking The DCECU?!.. WHO!!!??

HEY! How about THESE GUYS!? image

BRUCE TIMM and PAUL DINI! If you doubt these guys have what it takes to make the DCECU Phenomenal.. Just hold on a sec while I unzip this bag and…

image image image image image

WAM! BAM! THANK YOU MAME!

Timm and Dini KNOW DC, Inside and out! These shows are just to name a few. This is not including the work they’ve done on the Animated Films, The Games, The Shorts, Hell! Even the comics! They should get the Job based off of their work On JUSTICE LEAGUE/JL UNLIMITED alone! They know how these characters work. They know how they think, how they feel. They know everything about these characters.. The only people that could know more are the people who write the comics!

I’m not saying Timm and Dini can do it on their own. That’s the beauty about these guys.. They know how to work with a team! With Geoff Johns and many others working to make the DCECU, Timm and Dini would be the right Captains to Guide the ship. And Captains are just as good as the crew they have.

SO, GET OFF YOUR ASS! Mr. Tsugihara! And Get Bruce Timm and Paul Dini into those Executive Chairs and watch how they make Magic!

Heres that video I promised.. From NERDIST NEWS! Check it out, and let me know what you Folks think!

So, Until Next Time Folks… Peace Out!
