    Wow, that's a neat little window into the past!

    I guess the difference would be that today they know who the characters are, they just don't...

    It's been a few months, and both Lucifer and Designated Survivor have been saved by Netflix.

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

    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 films. And if you want to keep track of my progress in-between articles, there’s a Letterboxd list just for that purpose.

    The Wolverine Trilogy: X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), The Wolverine (2013), Logan (2017)....

    The Superhero Watch: X-Men Movies United (Part 1)

    Before the MCU, before Spider-Man on the screen, and well after Howard the Duck, there was a different sort of Marvel Movie Universe. It wasn’t Marvel’s first hit -- that honor belongs to Blade-- but it was the series that redefined the superhero movie. In many ways, I don’t think the current dominance of superhero movies would exist if it weren’t for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise. Today in the Superhero Rewatch Project (you’ll notice I dropped the “2018” -- I’ve resigned myself that there’s no way in hell I’ll finish this before the end of the year), we’re going to look at the eleven films that make up that universe thus far. And of course, feel free to read the previous installments focusing on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Spider-Man franchise, and the Superman films. And if you want to keep track of my progress in-between articles, there’s a Letterboxd list just for that purpose.

    The story of the X-Men films to date is the story of three trilogies, plus Deadpool....

    This is definitely a Craig question.

    The short answer, though, is that a few months ago he rounded up some writers, including several...

  • Someone is Dying in the DCU, and Honestly, That's Okay

    Someone is Dying in the DCU, and Honestly, That's Okay

    In a few weeks we’re going to be treated to the first issue of Heroes in Crisis, DC’s latest event series, which is being promoted as a “murder mystery.” Sanctuary -- a hidden location in the DCU where heroes can go to recover from traumatic ordeals, both physical and emotional -- is supposed to be a safe place for champions, so someone getting killed there is a shocking concept. And DC is doubling down on the shock value, with the latest issue of DC Nation magazine proclaiming “in 21 days, one of these characters DIES!” and giving us the six candidates for the victim that will kick things off. These days, though, comic book characters die and come back to life with such regularity that it’s almost impossible to get worked up about it. Heck, one of the potential victims -- Tim Drake -- has already “died” and came back since the Rebirth relaunch two years ago. So it’s really hard to believe that this death, whoever the corpse-to-be is, is going to stick.

    But the more I think...
