Justice League Trailer #2 at Comic Con

Who else is excited for Comic Con?

In just a few weeks, the 22nd of July to be exact, us DC fanboys and fangirls get to receive another Justice League trailer for the upcoming movie in November this year.

Ever since the reveal fans have been speculating and arguing if the big bad should be spoiled already, or even Superman with his new look.

I, myself rather like the idea of not knowing much to be honest. In the end, you already know what is happening and go to the cinemas with not a suspenseful feeling. But more a “sigh┬álet’s hope they can do this right”.

Not to mention, I hope Joss Whedon, the replacement for Zack Snyder, who did some finishing touches to the movie, did it justice. (Did certainly not intend to make a pun there!)

I want to put it out there, if you didn’t already know, I’m definitely Team DC Universe. Like I said before, there are certainly some speculations that Steppenwolf could be shown or even Superman with his dark suit, longer hair and a beard. But let’s see…

Nonetheless, I’m really excited for the Comic Con, and can’t wait! Here’s to seeing some amazing interviews, panels and trailers!

What are your thoughts on what should be revealed in the new trailer?

Zack Snyder steps away from Justice League

Snyder just informed the DC fanbase that he won’t be able to direct Justice League and seemingly any other projects in the future, due to his daughter Autumn taking her life at the young age of 20.

He confessed that this haunting occurrence already happened in March and the director wanted to keep this matter private. Snyder said that he thought he could dive into work, hoping it would be a cathartic experience. Now he decided to be there for his family and process it.

Joss Whedon, the man responsible for the Marvel projects like The Avengers, and who will do the new Batgirl movie, will take over the remaining Justice League scenes.

My thoughts and well-wishes go out to Zack and his family and I agree and understand why he had to take this choice. I’m hoping that soon in the future we get to see him again, continuing his life work.

Batman: Year One (Review)

 

Now I thought as my first post I’d write about the very first DC comic I purchased a few weeks ago. I’ve got to say as a great Batman fan I knew my first comic had to be a Batman book, though the Birds of Prey volume was a close second. Will update on that when I’m finished with it – stay tuned, guys!

[Spoilers ahead!] So, even before opening the book I knew, based on the renowned name of Frank Miller that I was in for some violent scenes and I wasn’t wrong.

Now this storyline is is during the time before Bruce Wayne decided to put on the mantle of the Bat, therefore you get to see him being branded as a vigilante by the police. Another character that shouldn’t be missed was James Gordon, the future confidante of the Dark Knight. You got to see him be a moral, yet human person as always. The only non-corrupt cop in the police force which rubbed a lot of his colleagues the wrong way.┬áThe one moment I didn’t particularly like was when he had an affair while his wife Barbara was pregnant at home.

Sorry, Gordon, but one less point for you!

Who do we have next? Our guest of honor… drum roll, please: Miss Selina Kyle. She was displayed as some kind of hooker, but I’ve got to admit I liked how the people responsible gave her a more dark-skinned look. Catwoman got to don her suit and she appeared badass as always.

Okay, the highlights.

Now this scene was truly chilling and inspiring. The moment when Bruce Wayne knew for certain that he had to dress up as a bat when a shrieking, flapping animal crashed through the window. Especially when the billionaire just said to himself, “I know what I have to do now, father”.

The second moment that won me over was when Batman was ambushed by police men and one shot at him, and in doing so nearly got one (presumably Selina’s) cat. I loved it when the caped crusader even hit said cop for it. Kudos, more of this, Bruce!

Nearly forgot this highlight, though it would be a damn shame. It was truly mesmerizing when the Dark Knight let out a sound that called a swarm of bats to his location. Yep, just like in Nolan’s “Batman Begins” and it was just magnificent to see on paper.

All in all, I really loved this book, it was really amazing. Some blood and dark themes but it gave this Gotham a really edgy look. I definitely can’t wait to read more of this!
