This piece contains spoilers for Justice League. Please read at your own discretion. 

With a film that had Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, and Superman, there’s no doubt in my mind that Justice League should have made at least $100 million at the box office. DC’s four previous films have each made over $100 million domestically on opening weekend. Unfortunately for Justice League, the expensive reshoots, Affleck casting doubt on continuing on as Batman, and the the negative critic reviews may have hurt this film at the opening box office.  Continue reading

I’m going to start by saying that I am a huge Zack Snyder fan. The director has given us some memorable films over the years including some of his earlier work such as the fantastic Dawn of the Dead remake, 300, and helped bring Alan Moore’s comic book adaptation of Watchmen to life.  Continue reading

Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok had many great moments sprinkled in that it’s very possible fans may have missed some of the nods in this film. While there are many hilarious comic book references, there are also plenty of scenes that give a shout out to past films in such subtle ways. Some of these are easy to miss the first time you see the film so if you do go see Thor: Ragnarok a second time in theaters, be sure to keep a close eye on the following scenes:  Continue reading

Massive Star Wars news has just dropped as it was recently announced that Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson will be developing a brand new Star Wars trilogy that will stray away from the Skywalker saga. But that’s not the only major Star Wars news to drop today.

Thanks to a report from Variety, #Disney CEO Bob Iger has also announced that their upcoming streaming service will not only include the #StarWars movies and cartoon shows but will also include a live-action television series!

You heard that right Star Wars fans, Disney is developing a live-action series that will only be available on their streaming service. While its not clear as to what the show will ultimately be about, we can at least all get excited for what’s to come. Thus far, Star Wars has had only cartoon series including Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Lego Star Wars, Star Wars: Rebels, and their brand new series Star Wars: Forces of Destiny.

Iger also made it very clear that Disney plans to develop four to five original movies each year in addition to the other announced television series. Iger also spoke of the price fans can expect each month as Netflix will likely have more content at least for now:

“The service will be substantially below Netflix’s $10.99 a month because the service will have less content overall. The price will reflect that. Our goal is to attract as many subs as possible starting out.”

The Star Wars Universe Continues To Grow

The live-action television series will certainly add to a multitude of Star Wars lore that will continue to grow for generations to come. It’s an element that is at least worth trying. Star Wars has already expanded its universe through the movies, novels, video games, and television shows. This upcoming live-action series should be an interesting take on the Star Wars universe.

While the Marvel shows do not need a massive budget, Star Wars however is a different animal consisting of large ships, lightsaber battles, as well as ground and space battles. The use of CGI and makeup will also be of utmost importance as fans will certainly not want to see half-assed job on a brand like Star Wars. We’ve already seen the rushed and cheap attempt on Marvel’s Inhumans. We definitely do not want this to happen to a Star Wars show.

The streaming service is set to launch sometime during late 2019.
