DC in Crisis?

Hello again nerds and nerdettes! Sorry I've been away for so long. Life can happen in the blink of an eye if you're not careful. I've missed you all and am happy to say that your favorite bearded nerd is back with all kinds of opinions, reviews and stories to share. Speaking of sharing, I recently joined the Instagram word! So give me a follow at Thee.bearded.Nerd for silly pictures and cool happenings in my life!

In the time of my absence, there has been a lot of talk about DC Comics and how they seem to be failing in making their mark with their movies. Too much hype but lacking, too dark, no real plot....etc. etc. Also, they recently "rebooted" their entire comic book line with what they're now calling their "Rebirth" stories. It would seem that DC is in turmoil and just can't gain any traction on getting their good company name back in the mainstream. That's if you listen to those so called "true believers" or "Marvelites". Those that never followed a DC comic’s story will say that DC is hurting.

Truth of the matter is this; DC is doing just fine. Their characters have never been more popular and their movies are setting records. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came in at $872.7 million. But yet, the movie was just awful and still makes more than I'll ever see in 5 lifetimes. And Suicide Squad has made $384 million....and still counting. Will it make as much as BvS? Probably not. But, once again, a terrible movie. That is, if you want to listen to those hacks over at rotten tomatoes or metacritic. Both websites reviewed the two films the exact same. 27% by rotten tomatoes and 44% by metacritic. Granted, comic book movies don't really rank high on a movie reviewers list anyway but that's just a bit of coincidence if you ask me.

In my opinion, DC movies have been nothing but great. I fell in love with Superman all over again, Ben Affleck jumped way up the list of favorite actors to play Batman and Gal Gadot can only go up from here as far as Wonder Woman goes. Suicide Squad was just as enjoyable to watch as well! So, I don't understand how one can say that these movies were as bad as the entire internet is screaming. And now, with the trailers for Justice League and Wonder Woman released, it has made me even more excited to see my brand, the DC brand, come to power. DC in crisis? More like DC is just getting started.


What do you think, is DC in Crisis? Do you like the DC films they have recently put out?

Furious 7 Director James Wan On If He Would Like To Direct Dwayne Johnson In Shazam

From ComicBook.com


 Furious 7 races into theaters this weekend. As members of the comics community, though, we're always thinking into the future. On Friday, we talked to James Wan in an exclusive interview and asked him if he would like to work with Furious 7 star, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson again on his upcoming Shazam film, where he'll play Black Adam.

CB: I do hear whispers that you might be in talks for a DC or Warner Brothers movie. Is that true?

Wan: There's lots of talks about lots of things so who knows what is true.

CB: Would you want to direct Dwayne Johnson again in Shazam?

Wan: Well, put it this way: I freakin' love Dwayne. He's an awesome guy and I would love to work with him again in a heartbeat. I know Dwayne wants to find something for me and him to do again in the future.


So, it's a possibility. Wan certainly sounds keen to the idea of working with Johnson again!
