Comic Book Films & TV

I tossed on the first episode of Titans today, finally, because I couldn't get New Japan World to work on my living room tv and didn't want to go back to my bedroom to watch... and I have to say, it's much better than I was expecting. I'm hoping that the show continues to impress me. Ever since Smallville, I've been hesitant to watch these types of shows because Smallville didn't interest me whatsoever, and as much praise as it gets, I don't think that I could enjoy Gotham as much as others do because I want my superhero shows to be about superheroes doing superhero things, right?

Maybe that's what is sticking out most for me about Titans. The action starts right away, and it's clearly about powered people doing comic book type things, as opposed to just trying to live a normal life. Like, if Titans was just a season worth of build up to Robin finally donning the suit and doing something, I'd probably give up pretty quick or just not watch at all.

The actor in your spoiler does a fine job with it, IMO. Really well done. 

Supergirl is also my number two, but that's because I don't think I enjoy anything on TV as much as LoT. The Flash is definitely the shittiest, and I have never managed to get into Arrow. I'm hoping Batwoman is good, really looking forward to it! 

LoT is a lot of fun, I'm looking forward to catching up. I'm definitely excited for Batman, too.

@Gabriel Titans is solid and I'll that it surpassed my expectations. I'm looking forward to season 2, based on what they've announced so far and how S1 turned out.

Be glad you can't get into Arrow. The last two seasons most episodes have been meh to garbage, and I'm actually glad it is ending after next season. And it was originally my favorite of the CW DC shows. (That's now Supergirl, with Legends close behind.)

I finally watched Shazam this weekend. My goodness it was so much fun! I thought it did really well to appeal to both kids and adults. I'm a huge Chuck fan, so I knew I would enjoy it just for Zachary Levi, who was just amazing. I also loved that Adam Brody was the Shazam Freddie. Perfect adult version of him, and just takes me back to Seth Cohen, so just great. Jerry from TWD being there foster Dad was cool too, as he was one of the only good parts of that show before I stopped watching.

They definitely could've done so much more with the Seven Deadly Sins, to the point that I didn't even know who they all were. That was very poor. But otherwise, they nailed it. I'm behind a bit and still haven't seen Far From Home yet, but only Endgame beats it for comic book movies this year, and by far my favorite DCEU movie I've watched.

Brilliant scene in the most recent season finale of Supergirl:

Frank Sinatra's "My Way" plays in the background while Lex Luthor attacks invaders. He starts singing along, louder and louder, and by the end he's practically screaming the lyrics.

Finished the latest season of Supergirl last night.

Really enjoyed it, more than the previous season comparatively. I'm disappointed they killed off Luthor but the Monitor tease at the end makes me think he'll be back?

Finished The Boys. Enjoyed it a lot. Though, a few things - comic spoilers and show spoilers abound:

Spoiler

I didn't see the reveal of Becca being alive coming at all. And man, Homelander's murder of Stillwell was brutal. So, now that Homelander's got a kid.. what's this mean for Black Noir? Because in the comics, he's Homelander's insane clone who perpetrated all the horrible shit Homelander was accused of doing. They could still do that, I guess, but it looks like they're going with Homelander being a straight-up sociopath from the beginning. Interesting choice.

Well, they've changed other things.

For instance, in the comics is was Homelander, not The Deep, who made Starlight give him a blowjob to stay on the team. Also, I'm only 4 episodes in.

I don't think I could be more excited for the COIE crossover, especially with the addition of Conroy @Lint.

Wonder if they'll get Lynda Carter onboard for the crossover? She's already been on Supergirl, as the President who was really an alien.

Initially, I thought the idea for a stand alone Joker movie was terrible.

Every trailer thats come out has been convincing me I was wrong.  This movie looks great

Does this kind of thing (and Shazam's popularity) prove to DC that making a "Universe" just doesn't work for them and letting artists make movies is their best option?

No, probably not.
