Um, ‘Aquaman’ Is Going To Be Awesome!

Aquaman released a teaser trailer a few months ago and while I did enjoy it to some degree it didn’t exactly entice me to watch it as much as I would’ve hoped. Well, yesterday an extended video for Aquaman came out and so, naturally, I had to check it out. Here it is.

Usually when a movie releases a five-minute! trailer that’s bad news but I have to say, for once, this was one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever seen a movie production do. Warner Bros. knew that people weren’t overwhelmingly excited to see this movie so they decided to show us what this film truly has to offer and I am beyond impressed.

This is honestly the first time I’ve watched one of the DCEU films with as much joy as I watched this trailer. It almost felt like I was watching one of Marvel’s movies as it displayed some fantastic action, lovable characters, and some legitimately good humor. Up to this point I didn’t know how I felt about Aquaman. He looked cool, seemed cool, but he wasn’t able to shine in Justice League. Well, in this movie, he’s clearly going to shine and I. Can’t. WAIT! To see this film!

Aquaman just may be the best movie in the DCEU so far with its incredible directorial vision, awesome looking action, and the sheer concept of Atlantis. I honestly couldn’t be more excited.

What do you think of this extended trailer? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

How Does The ‘Captain Marvel’ Teaser Compare to the ‘Wonder Woman’ Teaser?

The teaser for Captain Marvel came out last Tuesday, shocking the internet and making a whole bunch of Marvel fans super excited to see the highly-anticipated arrival of one of Marvel’s most powerful heroes. But, as I’ve grown to love the teaser more and more I can’t help but wonder what the Wonder Woman teaser was like when it first came out. So, I decided to share with you all a post comparing the two highly-anticipated trailers and discover which one is better. Enjoy!

Is It Just Me or Are The Posters for ‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘Captain Marvel’ Similar?

Wonder Woman came out last year to a large array of praise. Not only was it the first female-led superhero film in the modern superhero era but it soared to an outstanding box-office run with $821 million dollars, making it one of the highest grossing films of 2017. It also was the first movie in the DCEU to get legitimate praise from both critics and casual moviegoers who all agreed that Wonder Woman was the new hero of the DCEU.

Fast forward to now and Marvel is presenting their first female-led film with the arrival of Captain Marvel next year. It took twenty movies for a woman to finally get her own standalone film in the MCU but with the arrival of the official trailer just yesterday it seems that the moment we’ve all been waiting for to see Captain Marvel come to life on the big screen is fast approaching. But, because Wonder Woman was the first movie to break the female-led superhero film milestone, comparisons are going to undoubtedly be made and that’s where the topic of this post comes in.

You see, along with the trailer came an incredibly awesome teaser poster that shows Captain Marvel in all of her powerful glory but there’s something a little off about this picture and that is its incredible similarity to the Wonder Woman teaser poster. Let me show you the similarities.

Should Michael B. Jordan Be Cast As The Next Superman?

After Henry Cavill stepped down from the role of Superman in a shocking announcement that rocked the internet people have already begun wondering who the next Superman should be. One choice that has fans super excited is the prospect that Creed/Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan will assume the role of Superman. If that were to happen it could change how we view iconic superheroes, for it would be the first time a black man played the role of Superman.

Now while I totally support that and think that would be very awesome the idea of Michael B. Jordan playing Superman doesn’t exactly sit well with me.

He’s a great actor, no doubt about that, but one thing you never want to do is to saturate an exciting talent. Michael B. Jordan did such a fantastic job playing Erik Killmonger in Black Panther that I kind of can’t see him in any other superhero type of role, leastwise as Superman!

It’ll feel a bit strange seeing him transition from Marvel to DC in that way and I don’t think it would be a great idea. Now I’m sure he could easily pull it off but I just don’t know if I want to see him as Superman.

But, at the end of the day, it’s up to the producers behind the DC Universe. If they like the idea of Michael B. Jordan as the next Superman then I’ll have to wait and see whether it’ll be awesome or not. And if it is awesome I’ll be even more of a Michael B. Jordan fan.

This is just my opinion on the Superman recasting situation. Honestly, I don’t know who should be the next Superman but I can’t wait to see who it’ll be. 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Ben Affleck Is Officially Out as Batman

A couple of days ago it was announced that Henry Cavill was no longer playing Superman and on the heels of that shocking announcement it seems that Ben Affleck is stepping away as well. Now, this was rumored since Justice League came out so it isn’t much of a surprise but it’s still a little jarring seeing two of the DCEU’s biggest heroes step down in the same week.

Now the casting for another Batman must begin. I’m excited. 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

Henry Cavill Isn’t Going To Be Superman Anymore?

Breaking News: Henry Cavill isn’t going to assume the role of Superman anymore!

Can you believe that?! I know I can’t believe it.

Just a few hours ago it was announced that Henry Cavill had parted ways with Warner Bros. and the DCEU and will no longer reprise his role as the heroic Kryptonian, Superman. He’ll make one final cameo appearance in the upcoming DC Comics movie, Shazam! which is set to come out next April but after that he will officially be gone.

It’s a stunning announcement and one that easily reveals the inner turmoil in the DC Extended Universe. It’s already been rumored that Ben Affleck would eventually stop being Batman but this is totally unexpected.

Who’s Your Favorite Batman?

Batman is one of the coolest fictional characters to ever be conceived on the big screen. Before I knew Iron Man and Captain America and Wonder Woman I loved Batman. Batman was, and still is, one of the coolest superheroes ever created and these three gentlemen have played the iconic role the best.

The “Who’s the best Batman” debate can get a little heated and is a topic that will last for a long while between avid superhero fans and so I decided I wanted to make it the topic of this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy.
