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.

I’m So Excited for DC Fandome!

One week from today the first truly exciting movie event of the year is taking place and that is DC Fandome, an online virtual comic-con of sorts that will provide everything DC Comics-related.

That means we’ll be getting a new trailer of Wonder Woman 1984, some new looks at The Batman, a trailer for the Snyder Cut of Justice League, and a bunch of other announcements for Shazam! 2, Black Adam, The Flash, Aquaman 2, and so much more.

It is a 24-hour event that will be nonstop fun for nerds in desperate need of some good entertainment news. It’s been so long since any substantial movie news circulated through the internet that this feels like Christmas (and I’m not even a full-blown DC Comics fan but hey, I’ll take it.)

Of course, with so much attention surrounding DC Comics and thus Warner Bros. in the next week, it seems we’ll be getting other movie news later this month. Continue reading I’m So Excited for DC Fandome!
