My brother calls Steve Spielberg a “creative coward” these days. I won’t go that far, but I have been generally bored with him for the past decade. So, this news doesn’t move the needle for me. I mean, he ain’t Jaws Spielberg anymore. He’s CGI diarrhea Ready Player One Spielberg. Who knows, maybe he stuns the hair off the my tits with this effort. One can hope.
Sandman is coming back late this year in a big way. Neil Gaiman and DC Comics have announced that there’s going to be a whole Sandman Universe imprint.
What the fuck? Brian Marvel Bendis is no more. The writer who sort of totally fucking *is* Marvel comics has signed an exclusive deal with DC. Honestly, I’m having a little trouble wrapping my brain around this.
Woah. So. Apparently, DC Comics TV series revenue tops $1 fucking billion a year. Holy taint. Which explains why DC keeps churning out them TV series. And, supposedly, they’re good. Not doubting it, just never seen them.
Get it? I’m just calling everything about The Flash movie Dope, because it’s got the same director and actress. So shitty puns, man. Shitty puns straight everywhere. Seriously though. Cyborg is in the movie. Cool? Not cool? I don’t know, but I remain optimistic about the film.
Apparently it’s news that The Rock’s Shazam! movie is going to be set in the DC Film Universe. I mean, was there speculation that it wasn’t going to be? I don’t know. It’s Friday afternoon, slow news day, here have this morsel of #nonnews, folks.
Nicolas Winding Refn. Batgirl. Movie? I can’t even fucking imagine it.
The good news: Warner Bros. realizes they need to shake things up in their DC Films division. The bad news: they’ve chosen Geoff Johns (and Jon Berg). The good news: it can’t be any worse. The bad news: I’m not sure how much better it can get under his (their) stewardship.
DC Comics has a new logo. Take it or leave it, I don’t give a shit.
