New Information on the Justice League

jl

Last week, Warner Brothers flew several prominent bloggers to London to talk about Justice League that is currently filming. These were critics that had issues with Batman v. Superman, but were deemed fair in their criticism, and influential of course. Before we get to the information they learned, here is the official synopsis of Justice League:

“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman, and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash — it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”

From the opening moments of Doom, we are immersed in a nonstop action thrill ride. It’s been over a decade since we last received a proper Doom game.

Not the Kind of Crap Expected of DCU

Civil War

Is Bucky holding a stress ball?

Anyone who has been watching the Marvel Universe movies should be in love with the latest edition Captain America: Civil War. The first scene had me nervous that they were starting down the path of crap expected from the DC Universe: stories driven by plot with little pathos and no interesting character developments. In that scene they have corny jokes and flippantly kill henchman. Then some people got blown up and I was happy again.

Zack Snyder’s DC Cinematic Universe is even more brutal and darker than we suspected. With Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman, we have heroes that are disengaged from humanity, brutal, harsh, and very postmodern. Superman is bored and tired with saving humanity, Batman flat out murders people, and now thanks to the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Tech Manual, we learn that Robin was also an ax murderer.
