“NEWZ FLASH!: Catching Up On The Past Few Weeks Worth Of Geek News!”

Like I stated awhile back. I’ve been pretty ghost these past few weeks, so i will now attempt to give my unique view on all the shit i missed. Welcome, To The “NEWZ FLASH!”

(In no particular Order.. and keep in mind, im going based on pure memory..)


Marvel Studios’ long awaited attempt at bringing the ‘Real’ Inhumans to the Big Screen. We finally got our first look at the assembled cast in costume as The Royal Family. Lots of folks talked shit about it. “Bootleg X-men and “Too much leather” and “Where’s Madusa’s Hair?” are just to name a few of the comments that i saw. In my opinion. This looks fucking awesome! Madusa’s hair is obviously going to be CGI enhanced. Every one looks awesome. My only, only peev… The Attachment on Black Bolts head.. Where is it? Was that only apart if his mask? I thought that was actually apart of his head.. Maybe we will see it apart of the Royal Crown? Hope so.


Turns out the deal between Marvel and Sony Pictures has an experation date. It was revealed (to manys surprise) by a Sony Exec, that the deal would only last up to “Spider-Man 2”  Leaving many to try and calculate just how long Tom and co. Will be involved with the series. Tom is signed for a 5 picture deal (if i am not mistaken) With Civil War and the upcoming Homecoming counting for two. There is still Avengers 3&4, thats four films down, and many assuming he will appear in other marvel films later, Captain Marvel being a possiblity. That makes five and “Homecoming 2” could make six movies right there.  Now, with as much money as Sony Pictures looks to make over all these films, (even if its a small, small percentage. Moat of the money comes from their own spidey produced projects) It would be spectacularly Stupid (see what i did there?) for them to not get back to the table with Marvel and extend the deal. Which would be the most logical thing that will happen, once this initial deal is completed. 


Marvel Studio’s Announced that The Avemgers: Infinity War will no longer be a 2 part film, although they will still film both parts around the same time. Most likely to cut costs out of the already reported 1 billion dollar budget (If rumors are to be believed). The second part will also carry a different name. Many assuming that THE INFINITY GAUNTLET will be the name of the final film. My theory?.. Infinity war cpuld very well be pushed back to be the final film and Gauntlet would be the first one. Of course i based this on the fact that, Fiege and The Russo bros. Made it known that Thanos is the main character of the film. While our heroes would be the “side characters” persay.



Deadpool is looking to break the 4th wall now on the small screen with an animated series scheduled for sometime next year for FXX and to be produced by Donald Glover and others.. No word as of yet on who would voice the merc with the mouth. My vote is for Nolan North. Thats a fucking no brainer right there.


Not actual news.. Just humble opinion.


Please God Let This Be The One!!! Again.. Not news. Just humble opinion.

Im currently racking my brain trying to remember old news. But im coming up dry.

So here’s the latest one that dropped i think yesterday..


DC/WB is really feeling itself with the positive reviews and high hopes coming out of Wonder Woman. That some are reporting that the big wigs over there are looking forward to Batgirl being the next female lead hero flick to come out, instead of David Ayers’ Githam City Sirens. Which is still in the pipeline, but never the less, Batgirl could be next in line. So… Yay!

That’s all i got folks.. Hit me up with your thoughts and let me know what i missed, maybe I’ll add it in another “Newz Flash” also, let me know if you enjoyed this format of news. 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!


ICYMI: “JOSS WEADON Possibly directing DCEU BATGIRL Film”

Revealed a couple of days ago, Joss Weadon and the folks at DC/WB are in talks for the acclaimed director to Direct, write and produce a stand alone BATGIRL film.

This bods well for the future of the DC (sigh) ‘Extended’ Universe. Joss is a master behind the camera. A skilled storyteller. He knows, i mean, KNOWS how to translate strong female characters on the screen. 
Buffy: The Vampire Slayer being a prime example.

And other characters that appeared in the Buffy Spin off ANGEL. And the Series FIREFLY,

And its follow up film SERENITY. 

Lets not also forgot his amazing controbutions to the MCU. 

The man knows what he is doing. If WB is smart, they will let the man do what he can do and only interject when its absolutely necessary. 

But! Keep in mind folks.. Although sites like IMDB has him listed as working on Batgirl.. Nothing is final! 

Niether WB/DC nor Wedon himself has confirmed or denied such talks. Although we know those talks are happening. However, we dont have a confirmed word from anyone that He IS doing it. 

So, fingers crossed and a deal can be made. And lets hope Joss can work his magic for the DCEU and bring Batgirl to life! 

What are your thoughts folks? Is Joss your man for the job? Comment below. Plz leave a like, and a follow! 

Until next time.. Peace Out!


(I do not own any of the characters that appear in this story. Batman and all related characters are property and trademark of DC Comics. I Do claim the story though.. This is mine!) 

*Huff!* *Puff!* *Omph!* 

Barabra Gordon grimaced as she pulled herself up and then lowered herself down. Streathing her chin over the bar each time she came up. Huffing and puffing. Sweat dripping down her brow. “50!” she exhaled deeply. Slowly bringing herself down, she looked over at her wheel chair, which was a few feet away. She looked around the training area. The room was empty. She liked to work out alone. 


Barbra scanned the length of the pull up bar. She could easily scale it and be above the chair. With a sigh she began to scurry along the bar. Left hand, right hand. Left, right. Left right. Her legs bound together so they dont flail around as she moved. She hated not having control of them anymore. She clenched her teeth with frustration.  She was alomst there. Her feet hit the chair and it rolled back out of place. “Shit!” She nearly slipped off the bars when Suddenly, Firm hands held her waist. “Easy there, Sahra Connor.” A kind voice said, 

“Dick!?” she exclaimed in happy surprise. “Hey Barb.” he smiled, his foot held the wheel chair from slipping any further back and he helped her gently in to the chair. She hugged him tight. “When did you get back?” she asked. “Roughly an hour ago. Called your place. Your dad said, you’d be here.” He said. “So i thought i’d come pick you up.” 

He helped her unstrap her legs. And handed her a towel. “Thanks.” she said. He looked at her and sighed. She looked back at him. His eyes asked ‘Are you ok?’ Barbra smiled sweetly and her eyes said, ‘I will be.’ They smiled. “Come on. Lets get some grub. I heard they just opened a new Big Belly Burger a few blocks from here.” Dick said quickly as he rushed behind the wheelchair and started pushing her out toward the door. “Oh nothing helps a good workout like some fatty greasy food.” she quiped, “I know right!” Dick said excitedly and she laughed.

[LATER: inside Barbra Gordon’s new apartment.] Boxes cluttered the entirety of the living room. One lamp was plugged in. Babara layed atop her loveseat and Dick sat close on a blanket on the floor. A nightstand served as their dinner table.

“Hahahaha” Barbra laughed, tears in her eyes and a covering a mouthful of fries. “So. So. Victor,” Dick said through chuckles, “Victor is just laying there, under Gar’s Elephant Butt! And hes like. ‘I swear! If you let one go Gar! Im gonna blast you!’ hahaha!” They laughed. “Oh my goodness” Barabra said, wiping the tears away. “Thats golden.” “Yeah. I, I’m gonna miss those guys.” said Dick. “So. Your seriously gonna stay?” she asked. He paused for a moment, “Yeah. I am.” “Is Starfire okay with the whole, long distance relationship, thing? I mean. Its not like it would be a problem for Her, cause of the whole flying thing.” She said. “Uh.. Yeah. Yeah, its.” He started, “uhm, We decided. Or I, decided.. It would be best if we took a break.” “Really?! Why?” She questioned.

“I. Just… I realised that.. There, was something. More important to focus on.” he said, as he gently griped her hand and smiled kindly as he just as quickly and gentley pulled away. 

Barbra blushed. They stood silent for a moment. “Oh! I gotta show you something really cool.” she said suddenly. She moved herself forward and reached for her wheelchair. He motioned for it, “I got it.” she said sweetly, and he fell back. She got herself into the chair and wheeled to the other side of the living room. “Come on.” she said excitedly. He rushed to his feet and followed. 

She paused just before the short hall way and placed her hand on the wall. A small panel glowed for a second and then flickered out. Barabra sucked her teeth. “Still working on the bugs.” she said as she slapped the wall and a secret door opened. She lead him inside the small room as the lights flickered on. 

“Its still a work in progress. Mr. Fox helped me design it. I call it, ‘The Oracle’. From here. I can access almost all of Gotham. Police files. Security systems. Just about anything.” she said excitedly as she wheeled up to a large computer moniter. Dick looked around sternly. A tall display case was to the side. Her Batgirl costume displayed like a trophy on a mannequin inside of it. He carresed the glass as memories of the two of them leaping across rooftops danced in his head. His hand clenched in to a fist and he hit the glass. 

“Son of a bitch!” he cursed under his breath. “Dick?” she wheeled around to face him. “I cant believe he’s having you do this.. Even after whats happened!” he grunted. “Dick, This is My choice. My decision. I may never be able to walk again, but i am not going to let that stop me from doing what I know is right. And helping those that need my help.. In any way that i can give it.” 

He signed and looked away in embarrassment. “Have you even gone to see him?” she asked. “No.” he said. “You should. He.. He hasn’t been the same since that night. If he’s ever going to make it through this.. He’s going to need us, all of us. To help him. Whether he wants to admit it or not. Until that time. Gotham needs a protector.. Gotham needs a hero.. I cant do it alone..” She presented her hand. He looked at her hand, and then deep in to her eyes. “.. You.. You had me at hello.” he said dryly. She began to laugh as he leaned forward and hugged her in his arms tightly.



The GCPD’s Roll Call room was packed with officers, waiting for the days schedule. Muttled conversations polluted the air. In the furthest corner of the room, Officers Gruntkie, Berman, Portmen and Fogel huddled together.
“It’s going down tonight.” whispers Berman, “The meets at..” 

“ALRIGHT YA BUMS!” Harvey Bullock stomps in to the room, cutting off everyones chatter. Sgt. Renee Montoya enters behind him. “We’re gonna skip roll call, cause i honestly dont give a crap if your here or not!” He grunts. Some chuckle. “Where’s Gordon?” a voice asks. “Commissioner, Gordon. Was called in to city hall this morning and he asked us to proceed for him.” Sgt. Montoya answers. “Thats right jackasses, so listen up!” says Bullock. He ruffles through some of the papers in front of him looking for where to start. “Get that out of the way” Montoya whispers gesturing to the first paper. 

“Right! Uh.. Ok. Fluffy shit outta the way now. Tomorrow nights Gala at the grand ball room is supposed to kick off the city’s 200th anniversary celebration.. That crap is still happening.. So we’re gonna be pulling extra shifts from some of ya.” Groans erupted. “I know! But with this Black Mask crap still causeing trouble.. We gotta make sure the stiff upper lips going to thd ball are gonna be alright as they sip their souls away.” Bullock crumbles up the paper and tosses it to the floor. 

“What else we got?.. Uh.. Right. China town’s got some crazy shindig going on..” “Its the new year!” Officer Chen calls out. “Whatever! Extra man power is gonna be spent to keeping that going smoothly and not have it turn into Hiroshima” 

“Wrong Country!” someone mockingly called out. 

“BITE ME!” Bullock shot back as chuckles and laughs started. “Let’s Settle down guys.” Montoya called out.

“Get to the REAL story! Is it true!?” 

Montoya and Bullock exchanged looks. Montoya sighed, “Detectives are still taking Officer Brent’s statments about last night.. So we still aren’t sure what exatly happened.” 

“Oh Come On!” More groans from the room. 

“Look!” Bullock called over the voices,  “Even if the Bat IS back.. We’re still gonna do our jobs and get shit done! Whatever comes after that.. We leave to the guys in charge to decide that. So when the commish has something to say to ya.. He will.. Now lets get this over with.. I got better things to do then be stuck in this room with you mugs!” 


Berman and the other officers gather in the hallway by a rear exit. 

“3 o’clock sharp. Be at the location at least an hour before.. No later.” He says.

“So.. This is it? It’s really going down?” asks Portman excitedly. 

“Shh!” Berman nudges.. “Don’t worry about that.. You just make sure you have the package delivered on time.” 

Montoya exits a nearby room and spots the group of men. 

“Yea. No problem I’ll have Bird Man there right o-.. ” Portman starts..

“Hey! Guys!?” Montoya calls as she walks forward..  

The group look up startled and shaken. 

“What’s going on?” she asks.

“Nothing Sergeant.. We’re just.. Uh.. Making plans for the.. Next, poker game at Gruntkie’s place.” Berman stutters as the other guys start to slowly agree. 

“Okay.. Why dont you boys do that on your own time.” she tells them sternly, “You got jobs to do.” 

They hurridly agree, apologize and scatter. Her gaze follows Berman for awhile as he leaves down the opposite side of the hall. A feeling of suspicion crept in her mind.


Gordon sat outside the Mayor’s office. His leg bobbing up and down with annoyed and anxious nerves. He glanced at his watch and scoffed.Just then, The Mayor’s Assistant appeared at the office door. “Mayor West will see you now Commissioner.” she said kindly. He grumbled a ‘thank you’ as he rose to his feet. 

“Gordon! Please, come in. Come in. Sorry for the wait my friend.” Mayor West greeted Gordon at the door as he walked in with a firm and rigorous hand shake. “Please. Have a seat. I dont want to take up too much more of your time, so I’ll try to make this quick.” 

Gordon chose the nearest chair as a sudden feeling crawled up his back.

Mayor West smiled kindly, “How have you been Jim?” he asked. 

“Fine.” Gordon said flatly. A awkward silence followed for a few short seconds.

“Ok. Thats good, that good. Uhm..” Mayor West searched for the words in his head, “Have you been considering any upcoming vacation time?”

“No.” Gordon’s back straightened. “With THIS job, in THIS city. One can’t afford the luxery of ‘Vacation Time’. Let alone contemplate one.” 

The tension in the room began to build. Mayor West scanned the room as his mind continued to search for the proper words. “Is there any Real reason why we are having this meeting, Mr. Mayor?” Gordon asked, a tinge of sarcasm and annoyance in his tone of voice. Mayor West gave him a stern look.

“You. Have clearly had a very heavy work load as of late. This.. ‘Black Mask’ menace! And now, this. Sudden reemergence of The Batman?.. Maybe. Maybe it’s time for a freash prospective on the police force.” 

“Meaning?” Gordon tenses up leaning back in the chair.

“After the 200th anniversary festival, I am putting in a formal request for you. To Resign as Police Commissioner.” Mayor West said in one breath. 

Gordon’s chest lowers and he leans forward lowering his head. 

“Jim.” Mayor West said calmy, “I may not have been in office for long. But ever since what happend last year.. I am sorry.. You have not been performing at the standards that i have come to know. You have been working very hard, that is clear. But.. Something is..”

“Who the fuck do you think you are?” Gordon said, looking up into the Mayor’s eyes. 

“Excuse me?” Mayor West said feeling offended.

“Do you have any idea, Just what the fuck i have been through all these years!?” Gordon rose to his feet, ” The things I’ve seen!? I’ve been a cop long before you came out your daddy’s sack! Ive been Commissioner of Police for just as long as you’ve been alive! What i have sacrificed for this job! For this god forsaken city! My Life! Who the fuck do you think you are!!” 

“That is enough!” The Mayor yelled back. Jumping to his feet. “This outburst of yours has just proven my point. I could just as easily fire you right now. But i have too much respect for you. You have one week after the celebration to get your things together and prepeare for the transition. Now get the hell out of my office before i change my mind.”

Gordon’s face turned red from rage and then suddenly, as if realizing what jist happened. The red turned into embarrassment. Without a word he quickly turned and left the room. He rushed into the elevator. Breathing heavily, his mind raced a hundred miles a minute. His words echoing in his head.

“What I Have Sacrificed!” “This God Forsaken City!”, “Sacrificed!”, “My Life!”, “What I Sacrificed!” 

Gordon let out a loud yell. 

People stood waiting in the lobby for the elevator. The bell rings and the door opens. Gordon stood there. Expressionless. 


Harvey Bullock stepped out of the corner deli. Two cups of coffee in hand and a grocery bag of snacks and donuts. He stepped up to a near by car, put the bag in his mouth and worked the door open. He wiggled himself in to the dark car, “Here Ya go.” he said handing one of the cups to Renee Montoya. “When are you gonna get a bigger car?” he groaned as he closed the door. “When are you gonna get a smaller belly?” she shot back. “Har har.” he said, bitting into a chocolate glazed donut. “What exactly are we doin’ here?” he asked as he chewed. “It’s a Stake Out Harvey.” she said. “I know dat! Can you at least tell me why? And who?” 

Montoya nodded her head forward. “Him.” Harvey looked. 

Officer Portman exited his apartment building accross the street from them and headed straight to his car. Glancing at his watch he quickened his pace. 

“Aint that uh.. Uh.. Whats his face?” Harvey said. “Officer Charlie Portman.” Montoya said as she started her car. “We hot ourselves a ‘dirty’?” he grunted. 

She watched Portman closely. “I dont know… Just.. A feeling.” she said. Portman began to drive off. She gave Harvey a look of hesitation. He looked her in her eyes, “Your Guts never lead us wrong before. Lets tail the bum and see what we get.” he said reassuringly. She smirked with a relieved sigh and began to follow officer Portmancs car. 

[Gordon’s Apartment] 

Sahra Essen laid beside him sleeping soundly. Gordon sat in bed. In the dark, staring at the wall. His badge dancing between his fingers. He glanced at it. He frowned. Sahra turned over and he glanced at her. She was sound asleep. He ran his fingers thrpugh her hair and gentley stroked her cheek. He wanted to hold her. He turned to place his badge on his nightstand. He noticed the picture of him and Barbara together on the stand. Just then, his phone began to glow with a silent notification. He didnt pick it up. He looked at his daughters picture. He looked down at Sahra. The phone began to vibrate. 


Bullock and Montoya sat in the car on the corner street, across from an apartment building. Harvey looked at his watch. “Its been 15 minutes.. Maybe hes got a mistress?” Renee sighed and shook her head, “Its not a mistress.” she said and got out of the car. 

“Montoya?!” he called after her, “Keep the car running.” she said and closed the door. “Dont do anything stupid!” he hollard. She pulled out a baseball cap from her back pocket as she rushed across the street. Pulling the bill close to her face. She causally walked the front of the building. She scanned the front side. She walked up to the front door and peered inside. She sighed, she started for the side of the building. She made it half way around the corner. 

A dark hummer pulled up from the opposite corner. She spotted Portman in the drivers seat. Them she noticed someone in the back passenger seat. Her eyes widened and she slightly paused. Quickly gathering herself she placed her head down and continued walking. From the corner of her eye she watched the hummer veer off and up the street. “Madre Dios!” she exclaimed and quickly turned on her heel and ran back for her car. She jumped in like a blot. “What the hell Montoya!?!” 

She stepped on the gas and sped after the hummer. “What The Hell is going on with you!? What did you see?” Harvey said, struggeling to put on his seat belt. “The Dead!” she said.


A dimley lit room. A dark figure sits at a desk. The Black Mask mask sitting atop the desk. 

“I’m not afraid.” the mysterious man says, “I know what needs to be done…. “No. Im not having second thoughts.. I said No!” The Mask stared back at him with its red eyes. “Damn it! You do know what is at stake here!.. Nothing can go wrong. You understand?” The figure sat back in his chair. “Of course.. Everything is ready.  Assuming our ‘friend’ fulfills his end..” 

A light knock came at the door as it creaked open. A beautiful woman peeked her head inside.

“They’re ready for you.”she said. 

The man sighed, grabed the mask and put it on. 

Black Mask stepped through the door and on to a balcony that stood over a small meeting room below. 

Two groups of people stood at a table. A Large muscular Masked man, flanked by military garbed men stood on one side. A young Asian Woman in elegant, traditional robes, flanked by masked men in similar robes armed with swords and various weapons stokd in the opposite side. Neither, wanting to sit down with the other. 

“Lady! Gentleman!” Black Mask called from above as he headed for the stairwell. “Welcome! I am glad you could make it on such short notice.”

He stopped at his seat and looked at the each of them. “Please. Have a seat.” The group leaders exchanged looks. 

The woman, “I refuse to sit with Hired Thugs, and a Common Criminal. Bane and yourself are not the kind we wish to associate with. However! Our leader has informed us that You have something of worth to offer. That, is why we are here. But we refuse to sit with you like.” 

Bane laughed ar her words, his men laughed as well. “I, do not have such reservations,about you, Lady Shiva.” he said in a thick spanish accent. “But, I hold your master in high regard. That is why i dont reach across this table and kill you with my bare hands.” 

Lady Shiva removes her Sword, “I would like to see you try!” her men also drew their swords, while Bane’s crew drew their guns. 

“HEY! CAN YOU BOTH SHUT THE FUCK UP!!” Black Mask yelled. “Our guest of honor has arrived. Just then, a side door opened. Four other Black Masks entered the room. Flanked behind them was Officer Portman and at his side was, Oswald Cobbelpot, The Penguin. Behind them, Two very large men. Identical in apperance. Both missing an opposite arm. One a left arm, the other, the right arm. 

“The Penguin? I thought he died on Arkham Island” Bane said. “Reports of my demise have been greatly exaggerated! Wah, Wah, Wah, Wah!” Penguin cawed with a laugh. “Yet another Honorless Criminal!” Lady Shiva grimaced. 

“Oswald. I trust The Abramovici Twins have been taking good care of you?” Black Mask asked as he gestured for Penguin to take a seat. “Yes. Your boys have been absouloute professional. Wish i had this kind of muscle at my disposal years ago!” Penguin said getting in to his seat. 

“Now.. Lets cut too the chase. Where is my shipment?” Black Mask asked. “Well, let it be said, Roman Sionis was a tad more cordial when dealing with business associates.” Penguin shot him a displeased look. “I’m not Roman Sionis.” Black Mask said flatly. 

Penguin squirmed in his chair. “Well. My ‘friend’ overseas, has informed me ‘Our’ shipment of supplies will be hitting my warehouse later tonight.” he said. 

“All of it?” Black Mask questioned. “Every single piece.. Except..” Penguin started, “Except? What?” Black Mask pressed. “Except.. Some sort of Triggering mechanism or something.. He wasnt very detailed in his explanation.” Black Mask rose from his chair. He started to walk toward Oswald very slowly. 

“Uh.. He did. He did say that he left more detailed instructions.. With the uh.. Shipment.” Oswald stammered. Black Mask contunied to walk forward. “Wayne Tech! It’s something in Wayne Tech.” Oswald blurted. Black Mask stood before Penguin, paused Staring at him with his bright red eyes. A long tense moment passed. “That shouldn’t be a problem Oswald. I have people that can retrieve whatever is needed from Wayne Tech.” he said, reassuringly smacking Oswald on the shoulder. “Now.” He said, turning to sit on the edge of the table. “What Exact Time, was the shipment supposed to arrive?” 

“Should be in the next couple of hours. I can take your people there myself.” Penguin said, trying to hide the quiver in his voice.

“Portman!” Mask called, “Yes, sir!?” Portman answered quickly. “Whats the report from the Docks?” Portman quickly pulled out his phone and after a quick look,  “An unmarked Shipment came in alittle under an hour ago sir. Warehouse 17.” 

“How..!?” Penguin gasped. Black Mask clasped his hand on his shoulder. “I have my ways Oswald… But its okay. Im not mad that you lied. I mean.. I would do the same if i were you. Have some sort of leverage to make sure I stay alive in case things go south. Or perhaps.. Double cross the next guy and make sure i come out on top..” 

“I. I.. I.” Penguin stammered. “Oswald. Oswald. Calm yourself.” Black Mask rubbed his shoulders. “Relax… Gentelmen.” He said turning to the Abramovici Twins and snapped his fingers. The two men stood on opposite sides of Penguin and with each of their arms, clasped their thick hands around his neck.

Penguin gasped and struggled. The two men raised him up and out of the chair. Each applying great pressure. Penguin gurggled and spat for air. Blood draining down his nose, And then his tearducts. His eyes bulged, his face turning purple and then, with a sickening gurgle and snap. His eyes popped out the sockets. The two men dropped him like a sack of potatoes. 

Black Mask gingerly walked back to his seat and sat down. “Now. Can we get too business?” 

“Is this your way of trying to.. ‘intimidate’ us?” Bane started, “If so. I assure you. Your going to have to do better then that..” He smiled. “Indeed” Lady Shiva agreed. “You kill your buisness associates…”

“Oswald Cobbelpot is already dead.” Black Mask interrupted, “He died on Arkham Island. The GCPD is set to publicly release the list of the dead. It will only be a matter of time before The Batman figures out the medical records on Cobbelpots body are falsified.” 

Bane and Shiva exchanged looks. “Thats right. The Batman is alive and well and once he figures out Penguin is still alive. He will turn every rock in gotham to find him. Once he does. And he will. Penguin would give up everything he knows. Now.. That loose end is taken cared of. So, Lady. Gentelman. Can we discuss the future of Gotham?” 

“And why should we trust anything you have to say?” Shiva asked.. 

Black Mask sighed. And after a moment, quickly reached up and removed his mask.

Shiva’s eyes widened. She and Bane exchanged surprised gazes. 

“Great.. Now, lets get to buisness shall we?..”


BREAKING NEWZ! “WB Announces A Possible ‘NIGHTWING’ Film, With Lego Batman Director!”

Breaking Newz!.. Sorta! This was announced about 5-6 hours ago.. 
WB/DC has made it known that they are currently in talks with ‘Lego Batman Movie’ Director Chris Mckay, 

To helm a possible ‘Nightwing’ stand alone film. 

The ‘Lego Batman Movie’ 

was Mckay’s big screen directorial debut. He’s written and directed a few small screen affairs, among them, episodes of Robot Chicken. He did a truly fantastic Job with Lego Batman. Also joining Mckay, is the screenwriter of ‘The Accountant’ (forgot to look up his fucking name, but apparently he did a great job on that movie.) 

And IF, Things go smoothly, it will also be Nightwing’s live action big screen debut.
 (Chris O’Donnell’s “Robin” does not count)

This is truly cool and exciting news.. But, lets not get our hopes too high up.. This is WB Pictures we are talking about here, and we have already been mentally and emotionally fucked by these people. 

I’m not gonna shit on this. Im.. Ready, willing and able.. So, hopefully everything comes together nicely. 

How are you folks feeling about this news? Hit me up, let me know your thoughts. Please leave a like and subscribe/follow the blog. Thx so much, 

Until Next Time Folks.. Peace Out!


Hey there, ladies and gentelnerds and welcome back to another edition of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!” 
Todays movie.. 



Batman is the man! According to him. He’s always right. His amazing 9 pack abs are the greatest thing ever. (yes, i said 9 pack abs) He has it all figured out. And, He can do it all on his own. He doesn’t need anyone! Or so he believes. When The Joker devises a way to destroy Gotham and make Batman relaize how much he hates Joker, Batman is put to the ultimate test. 
Make no mistake. This is a kids movie. But the message can be felt and learned by people of all ages. The story is brilliant and funny. It may not be as loveable as its predecessor ‘The Lego Movie’, but its a close second. The Lego animation is spot on. The references to all of Batman’s past is fantastic. They go as far back as the 1940’s seriels. Its hillarious. They play around a lot with the Batman ’66 stuff. Bane sounds like Tom Hardy from The Dark Knight Rises. All of it is so funny.


Will Arnet proves his worthiness of the cowl. Rosario Dawson’s Barbra Gordon is great. Michael Ceras’ Robin is awesome. Ralph Fiennes as Alfred was spot on. So much so, i wouldn’t mind seeing him do it in live action form. The biggest surprise for me, was Zach Galifinakais’ Joker! 

For the material it was made for.. It was perfect! I loved it. Im surprised how much i liked his version of The Joker. 

THE POSITIVES: Everything was awesome! 

THE NEGATIVES: The soundtrack didnt have the song , “Everything Is Awesome”

OVERALL: “The Lego Batman Movie” is a great movie for the whole family. Its good for a date movie. Its good for going on you own to forget about all the other bullshit going on in your life for an Hour and a Half. Its all around great! We are 2 movies into the Lego Movies Franchise, and I cant wait for The ‘Lego Ninjago’ Movie! 

I Give, ‘THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE’ a score of, 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 8/10. Your going to have a great time! Go see it!

Have you seen Lego Batman? What are your thoughts? Hit me up, and be sure to leave some likes and follow/subscribe for more Weekend Movie Reviews! 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!


Greetings, ladies and gentelnerds and welcome. 
Today I wish to discuss a question that was brought to me by a friend on twitter (@marvelzombiek) Back when i asked for ideas for my 200th blog. (clearly i saved it for a later blog and i think it comes at a good time too.) 

He asked, “Is The DCEU Doomed To Fail?” and I’ve been contemplating on that for awhile now. At first, i would have said, ‘No.’ But.. I’m not so sure about that now.

 A lot has happened, so allow me a moment to go down some details.

BVS: Dawn Of Justice: 

Was supposed to be the official kick-off of the Warner Bros. Pictures DC centered “Cinematic Universe” (I honestly hate the ‘Extended Universe’ Tag) after the successful, but criticly scrutinized ‘MAN OF STEEL’. Things didnt go according to plan. In, what looked like, an attempt to play catch up with Marvel Studios. WB shoveled in so much plot into a dull plotted movie. It was embarrassing to watch as a fan. They hoped to set up an entire universe with 1 single film. Big mistake. The film was about 2 and a half hours long and they shoved about 3 movies worth of material in to it. (for further thoughts on BvS, check out these past blogs,  https://themarvelincblog.wordpress.com/2016/04/03/what-went-wrong-with-batman-v-supermandawn-of-justice/  and https://themarvelincblog.wordpress.com/2016/04/24/how-dcwb-should-have-set-up-the-dcecu/


An improvment over BvS and a big risk for WB.  But still lacked a cohesive plot and suffered from poor editing. Although a much more financial success. But still got rammed up the ass without vasiline by the critics and most fans. 

Is having the absouloute worst luck. The film has lost 3 directors. 2 screenwriters. Is currently on a full page 1 rewrite of the script and has no director at all. Its amazing the shit this project is going through.

Wonder Woman is still dropping in June of this year followed by 

Justice League in November. Those two films are probably WB’s last grasp at making this Movie Universe have continued life. I hope and Pray, WW is going to be awesome. I cant be anymore excited. Justice League.. Is yet another Zack Snyder directed film.. Fingers crossed is all i have to say about that.
Furthermore.. As I am putting this article together.. So much more has come to light from WB and the DCEU. 


Has decided not to direct the upcoming Solo batman film. One that he himself has co-written and is executive producing. Its also being reported that He is looking to negotiate out of his contract with WB and no longer be the Bat. So lets see What happens with that.

WB is looking for a director for the sequal, now that David Ayer has decided to turn his attention to 

Gotham City Sirens (IF that even still happens) On that short list of Directors they are courting, Mel Gibson is one of those people.. (More on that in a later blog.)
Look. It is not DC’s fault. It’s Warner Bros. Fault. For soooo many years.. Decades even. They have sat on the thier DC property as if it was nothing but a small cash cow that they can dip into every couple of years or so, once in a blue moon. Superman and Batman being their get rich quick guys. “Put 40-50 mil into this movie. Get 200+ back in return.” They dont give a flying fuck about anything else..

Until they saw the potential of Billions these “Comic Book Movies” could make, once Marvel studios started doing their thing. 

WB executive: “Hey Disney’s making billions over these picture book movies. Lets buy the rights to some of these things and do the same.”

WB lower executive: “Hey, we own a bunch of these things already!”

“WB Executive: “Since when?!”

WB lower exec: “the 1960’s” 

WB Exce: “Really? Well then.. Get to it! Just do what they’re doing” 

It’s sad really. Warner Bros. Is a fantastic film company. They crank out awesome movies, every year.. But they care about money. They care about awards. They care about profit. If it makes them money, and gets them Oscars and increases revenues.. To hell with everything else. WB’s doesnt care about building a universe. Or what it takes to do that. 

The mistakes they’ve made have been because everything they have done thus far has been in reaction to something else.

Marvel phase 1- Man of Steel

Marvel phase 2- BvS

Guatdians of the galaxy- Suicide Squad

Fans loved Wonder Woman in BvS- make a WW movie.

Fans liked Harley Quinn- give her a stand alone movie.

Batman was awesome in BvS- Push back certain release dates and work in a Batman movie.

All reactionary. They didnt plan any of this ahead of time. Cause they dont really care. As long, as it makes money. 

WB despreatly needs to find the right people to run this show.. And make DC Studios a reality. Do what disney does. “Oh, you need x amount of money for this? Ok. Have fun!” and let DC do what it CAN do best. 

Dont be like Marvel. Marvel has always been known for interconnectivity with its stories for many years. Its what they do best. DC.. Has always been about character and Story. Not universe’s and connectivity. It was always about the stories that made their books stand out from Marvel.

Thats what thier movies needed to do. Have their franchises establish themseleves and then later, if the story was right.. Bring them all together. 

That opportunity has gone and passed. As much as i would like them to just go back to the drawing board.. Its probably too late.. 

“Is the DCEU doomed to fail?”..

Maybe.. Maybe not. Its gonna be a hard road ahead for us fans.. But in order for The DCEU to survive and be successful.. WB needs to.. Backs The Fuck Off!! And find someone or a group of people that can set it all together before its too late.

Look, thats all i got folks.. I hope things work out. But thats my answer. I cant say its doomed or destined to fail.. But as long as WB is involved.. It just might Need to, in order for something to change for the better.

Let me know what you folks think. Until next time folks.. Peace out!


Hey There ladies and gentelnerds, and welcome back to another segment of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!”
Today’s movie.. DC’s Animated Universe Original Movie, “JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARK” 

THE STORY: When theres something strange, in your neighbourhood. Who you gonna call? A British demon killer, A Deadman, A self-loathing immortal, A Beautiful Magician.. And The Batman! Basiclly thats what Justice Leage Dark is about. Supernatural forces are making normal people do some crazy fucked up shit.. And its up to Batman (who else) to assemble a team to combat this threat.

DC’s Animated Universe is slowly improving. This film being one of the few good ones out of the recent string of, how can i say, Shit! That has come out prior. I can seriously count on one hand how many good ones this division of DC/WB has produced in the recent years.

The story is really good. Its entertaining. The cast of characters are actually the best thing about the movie. Everything else, seems to just be there. Constantine is super fun. Zatana is a bad ass. Deadman is funny. Etrigan is pretty darn cool. And Batman is… Batman! I liked his reactions to all the mystical things going on. Swamp Thing.. Shouldnt even be on the damn cover of the movies dvd box case..

That right there friends… Is false advertising! 
THE POSITIVES: Again, the characters. The good thing to come out of this movie is the fact that i wanted more from these characters. I want an animated series on adult swim or something. (Why Adult Swim? SPOILER ALERT: They fight a fucking shit monster. An actual monster made of Shit!) 

There is an incredible amount of potential for this ‘Dark’ franchise. If they’re smart enough to capitalize. But lets face it.. WB Animation is as smart right now as thier live action counterparts.. 

THE NEGATIVES: Swamp Thing was fucking WASTED!! A total fucking waste of time. Not gonna spoil it.. But they gave the Shit Monster more screen time! Bad guy was all powerful yet non threatening, and non interesting. Hades from the Justice League cartoon was more menacing. And he only had less then 5 minutes of screen time out of a 22 minute episode. And in all honesty.. If your not gonna use the Justice League in a compelling way in your story.. Dont include them at all! It seems like Batman is always the main focul point of every JL animated movie. Why havent we gotten any Wonder Woman movies out of this new animatex universe? How about Superman? Or GL? Oh thats right.. They would rather basterdize Batman stories instead and force feed us bullshit stories with his son Damien. (Im looking at you Batman vs. Robin!.. Asshole!) 

OVERALL: Besides the total screw job on Swamp Thing.. JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARK is a fun movie. Its one of the good ones. Entertaining. Beautiful Art. And great characters. 

I score, “JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARK” A 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5/10. You’ll enjoy it for the same reasons i did. If you like it for more reasons.. Then your grasping and straws friend.

Have you seen JL:DARK? What are your thoughts? Hit me up. Comment below. And for fucks sake, can a brother get some LIKES!!? 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!
