DC Universe: Early Impressions

DC Universe

First off, the movies. The movie selection is fairly small -- the Christopher Reeve Superman movies, the first two Christopher Nolan Batman movies, several of the animated films. Part of the issue here may be one of availability -- I have no idea who currently has the streaming rights to, for example, the two Swamp Thing Burton/Schumacher ...
 

The Superhero Watch: X-Men Movies United (Part 2)

In the beginning, there were Stan and Jack, and yea, they begat the children of the atom. And yea, it was good, And as always seems to happen with good things, eventually they made some movies out of them. In part one of this two-part installment of The Superhero Watch, we looked at the six movies (so far) that make up the main X-Men movie franchise. Today, in part two, we're looking at the three solo Wolverine films, the two adventures of Deadpool, and we glance ahead at the future of the 20th Century Fox X-Men universe once it moves over to its new overlords at the Walt Disney Global Media Consolidation Phalanx and Tiki Bar. And don't forget to read the previous installments focusing on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Spider-Man franchise, and the Superman filmsLetterboxd list just for that purpose.

  • Three Wishes: Streaming the DC Universe

    Three Wishes: Streaming the DC Universe

    We live in a streaming world. We have our Netflix, our Hulu, our Amazon Prime, but that's just where it starts. Do you want a vast selection of horror movies and TV shows? Subscribe to Shudder. Are TCM classics and highbrow fare more your thing? You need Filmstruck. Miss the cartoons of your youth? Get yourself some Boomerang. A fan of a certain famous science fiction franchise and want a service that includes that and literally no other reason to sign up? Right this way to CBS All-Access.

    With so many different streaming services and more on the way, you've got to start being choosy about which ones you're going to get. When DC first announced their plans for a streaming platform, I was skeptical that there would be enough content to make it worthwhile. Then the announcements started: live action shows featuring The Titans, Swamp Thing, Doom Patrol and more, plus a new animated Harley Quinn series and the resurrection of the popular and be unfairly cancelled Young Justic...

    There have been many versions of the Justice League over the years. Some have been sublime, some have been disastrous, but the best, truest versions of the League have all had a common thread: the biggest heroes, the biggest threats, the biggest stories. The Justice League should be the biggest thing in the DC Universe. With the first issue of Scott Snyder's run, we're finally getting big.

With a lighthearted tone, the series dives into things that the viewer grew up with, chock full of interviews with the people who conceived the toys, creators who made the TV and comic book tie-ins, and supercollectors. Plus, you get all the classic toy commercials you grew up with.
