A Rundown of the Disappointing DC Fandome

DC Fandome happened yesterday and man was it boring! Last year’s version of the digital DC Comics celebration event felt so much funner but this year’s version, broken down into four hours to reveal everything new coming to the franchise, was absolutely terrible. And it wasn’t just because the shows looked awful or the comics didn’t seem interesting. Even the content for the new movies coming next year or in 2023 seemed lacking. So yeah, it wasn’t a very fun Saturday in the DC Fandome department but I’m here to talk about what we got. So here we go.

Black Adam

I was excited for Black Adam and I still believe this movie is going to be awesome, specifically with the idea of so many incredibly powerful characters being introduced in this film like Aldris Hodge’s Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate, Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone, and Noah Centineo’s Atom Smasher. However, this first look compilation featuring behind-the-scenes tidbits and about 30 seconds of nothing was just…annoying.

Last year the cast of characters was already announced and yet this year we still didn’t get a full look at these actors as their characters. That just doesn’t make sense to me! It’s been a whole year and we still can’t see what Aldris Hodges looks like as Hawkman yet?!

And the first footage from the movie was 100% not that great. I get it. Dwayne Johnson was born to play Black Adam, and I actually agree with him, but for this movie to be really special I’m going to need this to be a different type of superhero movie experience.

One where we follow the story of Black Adam, an ultra-powerful villain who has to take on a team of heroes consisting of Hawkman, Cyclone, Atom Smasher, and Doctor Fate. And then, throughout the film, he gradually kills them off and ends up the surviving baddie at the end of the movie. A baddie ready to take on Shazam in, most likely, Shazam 3.

I hope that’s what this movie is all about because if it’s anything else I’m going to be royally disappointed.

A New Age of Diversity Is Here and Here to Stay

For the past few years we have seen diversity highlighted in Hollywood in exciting new ways, namely the popcorn flicks that ultimately attract a lot of eyes and attention. In Marvel, we got to see a nice swell of diversity that continues to be a highlight of the franchise.

Valkyie, previously known as a white character in the comics, was recast with Tessa Thompson in the role. Not only was this exciting at the time of Thor: Ragnarok but to know that she has become the King of Asgard is rather thrilling to think about.

Black Panther, a film with a predominantly black cast, would go on to be the first Marvel movie to be nominated for Best Picture as well as the only Marvel film in the MCU to win Oscars for Best Original Score, Best Production Design, and Best Costume Design.

‘Justice League’ Gets a Face Lift and ‘Black Adam’ Looks Awesome!

We’ve been waiting for the trailer for #TheSnyderCut since it was announced that we would be getting to see it and here we go, the trailer for #TheSnyderCut. Enjoy!

Yo! I’m so impressed. I’ve seen Justice League enough times to know what needed to be changed and what differences #TheSnyderCut has made. This trailer literally had my jaw dropped. I’m talking, mouth open in sheer wonder.

The cinematography retained that dark, gritty look that I’ve gotten used to with Batman vs. Superman and yes, we’re finally going to get more of these new characters in ways that wasn’t as fleshed out in the theatrical version.

I’m so ready to see this new-and-improved version of Justice League and I can’t wait to see what surprises are in store.

And then there was Black Adam which I’ve been waiting to see as well.
