We predicted WAY MORE this time than during X-Men...
Holy heck, James Gunn just dropped a LOT of information on us about where the DCU is headed in a recent social video drop, and we've taken the time to process what it all means, decide what we're most excited about, and most importantly, pinpoint exactly which things we TOTALLY CALLED in our Coverspiracy from last December!
And YOU get a speculation, and YOU get a speculation!
Boy howdy, there's been a LOT of speculation around the future of the DCU! Rumors about who's in, who's out, who hates who, and what random characters may get introduced have been whirling wildly all over the internet, with only limited confirmations or denials coming from the Gunn-man himself. We're here to help clear up what's true, false, and undecided, along with our theories about what's next for the DC Cinematic Universe.
You can be awesome, but maybe not at literally everything?
TO PREFACE we love Darth Vader and Doctor Aphra and Wolverine and Batman and Superman and all these folks as much as the next loud-mouthed podcast team. HOWEVER, when a character is OP, or they constantly overcome challenges just by *being themselves* - their stories start to become predictable, and worse, boring. Let characters be good at stuff, but maybe not the BEST at everything they touch, okay?
Best Fwend Powers, activate!
Weekly Pull Highlights: March 16, 2022
Not every superhero story needs to be super deep, or super depressing, or super dramatic. Sometimes, it's just super people fighting bad guys and shaking hands. And honestly, we're totally into it.
I mean, maybe do more than Year 1? Maybe? Just a thought.
Did you even know this was released? We're gonna guess that's a no, since we barely found it out about it. Is it better than the game? Not really. Is it a bad flick? Not entirely. But we'll cover all of that, so maybe you don't have to go hunt this down in the local Redbox.
It's like a video game... rhymes with "SmallOut: Shmew Megas"
Weekly Pull Highlights: April 7, 2021
Indie titles are really flexing on taking older tropes and stories and completely flipping them upside down. This week, we've got a "super" spin on post-apocalyptic wastelands, a bloody take on horror anthologies, the corporate prequel to the zombie sequel, and the hidden figures behind good old Supes' himself. Man, we love indie books.
And now we get to be depressed about no sequels...
After years of talking smack as non-believers, we sat down and committed the time to watch the newly released Zack Snyder cut of Justice League. And honestly guys... we were wrong. This movie is awesome!
A relatively non-spoilery episode, we break down WHY it's better, and why having a 4 hour runtime is actually it's biggest strength.
It's the return of our favorite - goofy Lex Luthor!
It's our final week of Future State titles! Let's wrap things up with a handful of titles that were even more removed from the timeline - but that may have made them even better. We'll be covering Aquaman, Batman/Superman, Legion of Superheroes, Suicide Squad, and Superman vs Imperious Lex. Yeehaw, we're almost through it, y'all!
We need a timeline poster, stat.
Oh snap, it's more Future State #1s! This week, we talk about Catwoman, Superman: Worlds of War, Immortal Wonder Woman, Nightwing and Shazam - and when we say talk, we mean try and figure out when in the heck these books all take place in the timeline! I think we need a roadmap, DC, sheesh. Let's get rolling!
It's sort of like "No Context" the crossover event.
It's round two (pun intended) of our Future State Roundups! This week, we're covering Dark Detective, Green Lantern, Justice League, Kara Zor-El Superwoman, Robin Eternal Superman/Wonder Woman, & Teen Titans - a whole lot of references without a whole lot of payoff. We give you the rundown on what to pick up, what to skip, and what we preferred of all the new titles.
