ICYMI: “PROFESSOR MARSTON AND THE WONDER WOMEN” 

I have not seen this film yet.. But i really want to. In my search of its release date. I discovered that its currently playing as of oct. 13. Most likely a limited run. 

Based on the true story of Professor Marston, his wife and thier lover and thier creation of  “WONDER WOMAN”. Thier relationship that inspired the original world of Wonder Woman. And the challenges they faced during the “Seduction of the Innocent” era. The dark ages of comics. Here’s the trailer.. ICYMI..

Looks so damn intriguing. I cant wait to see it and give you folks a full review.

INTRODUCING NEW BLOG SEGMENT: “WHAT?!”

Greetings ladies and gentelnerds and welcome to a Brand New Blog Segment! 

“WHAT?!” Is the Blog Segment in which i just ask the Question.. WHAT?! in regards to a certain bit of news that may be in the atmosphere. 

Today’s Topic?..


Its been reported, Today? Was it? Anyway, these days bleed together for me.. I have no idea what day it is now.. Anywhoo!

DC and WB announced that a slate of DC Comics centric films outside the current DCEU Universe..


One of the first films in that line up.. 

A Joker Origin Film! 


Produced by the legendary Martin Scorsese, 

and directed by “The Hangover” director Todd Phillips

Its supposed to be set in the 1980’s and is to be made to look like a Taxi Driver toned film.


The only upside I see in this..

No Jared Leto

Although he is still set to appear in both Suicide Squad 2 and Gotham City Sirens.

This could be a massive success, or It could be the dumbest fucking thing for WB to try to do so soon.

Really WB? An Elseworlds set of films?!


You’ve barely been able to set up your current DCEU Universe properly!

4 films in, and the only current success you have is “WONDER WOMAN”

(I do realize i have yet done a movie review for the film.. Thats coming soon..)

Im still going go hold a wait and see mentality.. But seriously…


Until next time folks.. Peace out!

“MY THOUGHTS ON.. THE DCEU: IS IT DESTINED TO FAIL?!”

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/

SUICIDE SQUAD: 

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. 
THE FLASH: 

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.
NOW: 

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. 

BATFLECK:

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.
SUICIDE SQUAD 2: 

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!

WONDER WOMAN:

“HOW DC/WB SHOULD HAVE SET UP THE DCECU!”

Hey there ladies and gentelnerds! I’ve been thinking.. I know, nothing good ever comes from that.. BUT, hear me out!

I’m gonna tell you, AND the big wigs over at DC/WB..

“HOW THEY SHOULD HAVE SET UP THE DCECU!” (AKA: DC Extended Cinematic Universe)

You must be thinking.. “Who the fuck are you to tell them how to run thier shit?!” Well, to put it simply, “I’M A SMARTASS!” 😁👍

THIS! Is how the DCECU is currently set up as of right now..👇

image

And so far we are ONE movie in, (Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice) and the SECOND soon approaches in the form of SUICIDE SQUAD!

But as I sit here, gazing upon this glorious assortment of Nerdgasms to be.. I can’t help but think.. “Yyyeeaahhh.. I can do better!” So here’s how it should have gone.. FIRST- We had “MAN OF STEEL”

image

Which was a very good and decent first step into this new universe.. Which should have been followed by “MAN OF STEEL 2 (Tag line: Man Of Tomorrow?!) Which should have featured a lot of the ‘plot’ elements that was in BVS. IE: the Senate Stuff. The aftermath of MOS and the destruction of Metropolis. The constant questioning of what Superman means to the very structure of our lives. And you know what.. I would keep Eisenbergs LEX LUTHOR, I kinda liked it a little. In the hands of a better screenplay and MUCH better director then Zack Snyder. (Yes! One and done for mister Snyder in my fantasy!) I am certain that version of Lex Would have worked better. Have Lex create BIZZARO which would be our feature Villain. BUT! Have him be a perfect clone at first.. Then, his genetic structure starts to break down and so to does the creatures sanity. Resulting in our beloved grey skinned version of the character. Before that, Have Lex somehow entrap our hero. Perhaps secretly creating a problem off world that would result in SUPERMAN’s disappearance for a short time. Allowing Clone Superman to ruin his name in the public eye. Giving Superman that moment of “SEE! I am the good guy!” As he defeats Bizzaro, without causing such widespread damage and in font of the world. Giving people a reason to love him and build a monument in his honor. (Here’s the part where we start planting some seeds for the future) It’s not revealed that Lex was behind the whole thing.. In the privacy of his main office, he receives a message from.. (Wait for it..) Granny Goodness! (side note- Granny Goodness should be played by an old man in drag playing an actual woman) “We gave you the tools to remove the Kryptonian from the picture.. The Master will not be pleased.” “The best laid plans take time, my dear ‘Granny’ In due time.. In due Time.” (Now either this or this next idea, can be swapped as the after credits scene) We see Batman, in his BatCave, reviewing on multiple screens, the Zod fight, the Bizzaro fight, and Superman being rewarded by the President.. Says nothing, but sits back in his chair and ponders.

Leading to..

BATMAN SOLO FILM!

image

Again. Taking SOME, and I do mean some. Things from BvS. (Except the whole killing shit.. Non of that!) While Batman deals with a particular problem in Gotham. How does he cope with being a hero in a world with a Superman. Some criminals opting not to really fear a man in a bat suit, when there’s a Guy who flies and takes down buildings barehanded. “Who’s afraid of the big bad bat?” Forcing Batman to go a little hardcore. Leaving Alfred concerned.. “Don’t fall down a path from which there is no return Master Bruce.” While dealing with the main villain of the film.. (I would like someone like a BLACK MASK or maybe even THE COURT OF OWLS, which could bridge out in to a trilogy storyline) things go a little sideways and someone dies. Accidentally, of course. Causing past Partner Dick Grayson to stop by and try and help Bruce find his way back. With various mentions to other heroes and characters helping up broaden the Batman World. Dick finds that Brice has been obsessing with Superman saying, “You don’t need to be like him Bruce, your way has always worked and always will!” “But what if it isn’t enough, Dick? What If I need to be.. More.. The world.. Is changing.. There are.. Others!” (Here we get our Cameo Montage from BvS. Aquaman, Flash, a brief glimpse of John Stewart and perhaps a file labeled J’ohn J’ones, OR another brief glimpse at a Billy Baxton?!) “Superman.. Is NOT the only ‘Threat’ out there.” Batman says. The Solo Batman Movie wouldn’t necessarily need a direct tie in to any other movie.. But maybe..

image

THIS.. Is where DC can establish itself as a More unique Universe from Marvel. Not every movie needs to have a single thread to tie them altogether. They can have their stand alone franchises that exist within a larger universe. Like Netflix shows, but on the big screen. SUICIDE SQUAD could be the first of many in this style of Universe building! Lets take a step back from all that and have some du with a group of villains on a suicide mission to save the world. And if theyare serious about this kind of universe building, they can follow up SS with a stand alone DEATHSTROKE film!

image

THEN we get back to the main universe with..

image

We NEED to do a live action retelling of the animated film.. “SUPERMAN/SHAZAM: The Return Of Black Adam” only that it would be mostly a Shazam centered movie. Bringing in Superman toward the end of the first act or the middle of the Second. Billy gets his powers from the wizard Shazam because he is aware that Black Adam is soon to return. (Here’s where you can play with time just a little) The Superman we get can be the superman after the events of MoS 2. But we will get glimpses of Billy around the time of MoS1. He gets his powers and has fun with it. Putting him under Batman’s radar in the solo Bat film. This new hero also gets Supermans attention, looking to help guide the new kid. Enter Black Adam! And the rest is laid out in the animated movie. Superman discovers he’s vulnerable to Magic, and so on and so forth.. (After credits scene.. Perhaps, Lex and Granny discuss the Arrival of Shazam. But Granny stresses that Superman is the main concern… “We now Know that Magic is his weakness!” Says Granny, “I am no magician ‘Granny’ But I am looking into something more.. Tangable.. And we get out first look at Kryptonite)

We follow that with..

image

That’s Right! THE FLASH! We all know the story, But.. In this movie we will also explore the aspect of Time Travel! And we won’t have to wait 22 (albeit beautiful) episodes to get to that. Which would play a key plot point in future movies! (That’s a Key Word right there, Movies!)

AQUAMAN would follow Flash,

image

THEN.. FINALLY! We get a REAL..image

BATMAN v. SUPERMAN (fuck the dawn of shit!) A real, straight forward, Batman meets Superman, Movie! And I don’t mean meet three times and then fight. We look at the real meat of these two Goliath’s. Two ideologies. Two very different views on the world and how they deal with it! Yes, we get Kryptonite. Yes, we get a uniting threat. Yes we get Wonder Woman! But! No one dies, (I’m looking at you superman!) No one gives a shit about MARTHA! And it will all make sense! By the end.. Machinations are discovered and Batman realizes, that precautions have to be put into rotation.

Follow that with..

image

I would still keep it in a time period like WW1. Have her battle Aries as he plots to use Earth as the ultimate battle ground for the downfall of the gods. Have him say something like.. “And as I rise to the throne of Olympus, The old gods will fall.. Making way for the Rule of the NEW GODS!” (See what I did there) Aries is in with Apokolips and Darksied. Bang! In the aftermath, a Mother Box is uncovered. The Government gets their hands on it. Which in present day, Lex gets ahold of it and them Dr. Stone (Cyborgs dad) gets his hands on it. And maybe we can get a… TEEN TITANS movie..

image image

Lex Is the villain. Cyborg is created, the Mother Box is explained in a little more detail. Granny Goodness and her Furies could be the final boss type battle.

THEN, just before the big show..

image

Now, The GLC movie can be interchanged with the TT movie, when it comes to release date. But I would have these two back to back. GLC can be used very much like Guardians Of The Galaxy was used for Marvel. But could also take place on earth and in space.

FINALLY!

(at this point I’m going to make a very weird proposal.. Bare with me, and save your foul language toward my intelligence for the comments section..)

JUSTICE LEAGUE: PART ONE

image

I would play Part one, as part two.  Literally pick up in the middle of a story. Shit has hit the fan! Things went horribly wrong at some point and towards the end.. DARKSIED has won the final battle, and We send Flash back in time to set things Right. In between the two parts of JL, we can fit in a TRINITY FILM!

image

To set up the JUSTICE LEAGUE:PART TWO! Here’s the tricky part. Flash has been effecting things throughout the Main Films timeline. And how he does it has to be done.. Not like a pie in the face obvious way.. But in a smart way, that makes viewers go.. “OHH!! Holy Shit that was bold!” And they have to realize it towards the final arc of the lead up films.. And JL 2 would be the big climactic formation of the JUSTICE LEAGUE we know and love!

This whole movie slate would have to pick up directly after MAN OF STEEL, and not two or three years later. So it may seem like a lot in a small timeframe. But my slate would be from, 2013-2019/20. That mean’s that my slate would start right away. And i would make Roughly Two or Three films a year. (I’m WB! I can do that!)

SO! That’s what I got! LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK! Comment below. Subscribe and or follow the Blog. Hit me up on Twitter and Instagram. @Sgsonny70 and @Marvel_Inc2099.

So, until next time folks… Peace Out!
