You wouldn’t know it from the dour, lame-as-dark-as-fuck Superman movies, but Henry Cavill is pretty goddamn charming. If you need proof, look no further than The Man From UNCLE. So while I’m a seemingly limitless DCU hater, I’m pretty excited that Cavill is joining M:I6.
Matthew Vaughn is a competent director. I don’t really feel either way about him possibly directing Man of Steel 2. Especially since most of my complaints regarding the DCU have very little to do with the directing (which may be saying something). Rather, my chief criticisms are more focused on the scripts.
Someday, Black Adam and Superman are going to punch one another a lot. Which sounds fantastic. Until then, we’re going to have to sate our lust for the two of them onscreen together with a picture of the two beefcake actors playing the characters.
Yeah. I don’t know. Zack Snyder really doesn’t fucking get Superman (or Batman, or Watchmen, or strong female characters). And despite Snyder always proving this, I’m always annoyed. Like, what the fuck is this clip? Whatever. Fuck.
It appears that Marvel and DC are getting into a little bit of a diversification Arms Race. Works for me. DC has announced they’re nixing the “New 52” label after the upcoming event, Convergence. Following that MEGASPLOSIONVENT they’re unleashing a torrent of new titles. And baby, some of them are tasty. Black Canary drawn by Annie Wu? Fuck yeah. Section Eight by Garth Ennis and John McCrea? Constantine written by Ming Doyle and drawn by Riley fucking Rossmo? Word.
I get in trouble here a lot from random people floating by this Shit Hole Space-Ship who don’t know I’m a hyperbolic, exaggerating douche bag. They ain’t down with my over-the-top shit talking of Batman vs Superman vs Lex Luthor (feat. Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Others, and now Doomsday). So I’m just going to leave this here. Just for you to chew on. Without my typical commentary.
