DC Universe Streaming Service

Yesterday, DC Comics announced that their new Netflix-like streaming service, DC Universe is available for purchase!  DC will be taking all of their tv shows and movies off of all other streaming platforms so that DC Universe will be the only place where you can watch DC stuff, besides on regular television.  There will be lots of original movies and tv shows on the platform like Teen Titans and Swamp Thing, similar to how Netflix has shows like Stranger Things that are exclusive.  I think that it is going to great and I would recommend looking into it.

Birds of Prey Movie

Recently, people have been spreading rumors about a Birds of Prey movie, directed by Cathy Yan, which would hit theaters in the years to come.  Even though the Birds of Prey tv show (2002 – 2003) was short lived,  the success of the Batgirl and the Birds of Prey Rebirth comic series, would make a movie based on the team would be a great addition to the DCEU (DC Extended Universe).  Actress Margot Robbie who played Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad has talked about possibilities for the film, including that the Birds of Prey might team up with the Gotham City Sirens who quite possibly have their own movie in the works.  Sources also say that the movie might be rated R which would make it more appealing to older audiences which in my opinion is a poor idea.  The only characters that have been confirmed are Harley Quinn and Black Canary with rumors of Batgirl.  I personally think they should seriously consider adding the Huntress, too.

Teen Titans TV Show

Recently, on the DC Comics website, there has been an announcement about a Teen Titans live action tv show.  There have been a few different Teen Titans cartoons, which include Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go, but never a live action show, or even movie.  In the same post about the tv show, a all DC Comics tv show streaming network was mentioned.  After doing a little more research on it, I realized that it is like Netflix or Hulu for DC Comics tv shows and movies only.  The other show that was brought up in a similar post regarding what shows will be included in the streaming network was Young Justice season 3.  This makes me really excited because I loved Young Justice when it first aired in 2010.  Since it was cancelled I have been waiting for Warner Bros. to bring it back, and make a third season.  While Young Justice season 3 has been confirmed, we don’t yet know when it will come out, or who the cast is.  Although, the Teen Titans cast has partially been confirmed.

The cast consists of:

Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson (Nightwing)

Teagen Croft as Rachel Roth (Raven)

Anna Diop as Koriand’r (Starfire)

DC Comics hasn’t released when the show will air or,  what the story line will be based off of.

Doom Patrol Vs. X-Men: Who Copied Who?

Many people have noticed shocking similarities between DC Comic’s Doom Patrol and Marvel’s X-Men, and it is hard to tell who copied who.  The majority of people agree that since the Doom Patrol came first, Marvel was indeed the copy cat.  Others suggest that it was just a coincidence, and that Marvel wouldn’t have time to copy DC Comics because the first X-Men comic was published only three months after Doom Patrol.

Batgirl Standalone Movie

Great news! Recently there has been a post that there will be a Batgirl standalone movie.  It will be directed by Joss Whedon, who also directed Avengers: Age of Ultron.  The casting is not yet public, but there is a rumor that there will be a Ben Affleck Batman cameo.  This news gets me really excited because Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) hasn’t been in anything live action since 1968.  The actress who played her was Yvonne Craig.  Now the movie will be based around Barbara Gordon (the first Batgirl), and there also might be a Nightwing cameo.  The release date is not known, but since it was just announced about 5 hours ago, and they don’t even have a cast yet, the movie should come out in around a year and a half to two years.  Hopefully this movie will live up to big fan’s (like me) expectations.

Young Justice Season 3

One of DC Comic’s and WB’s most successful cartoons in 2011 was Young Justice. It premiered in 2010 and went on for two seasons on Cartoon Network. It was canceled for an unknown reason, but know there are rumors that it is going to have a third season.  This third season will have all of the original voice actors returning, and the voice actor of Wally West (Kid Flash) is going to be in it also.  This meaning that Wally West will return even though he supposedly died in season 2.  There hasn’t been any news on when the exact season 3 release date will be, but some people think that it will be sometime in late spring to early summer.  When it does air, it will be on Cartoon Network.  Overall, I am personally excited, and I think most fans are to.  Hopefully it will live up to its first two great seasons.

Review: Green Lantern vs. Sinestro Lego Set

Recently, I purchased the Lego Green Lantern vs. Sinestro set.  I really like Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and that is why it caught my eye.  This is one of the only  Lego sets that has Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) or Sinestro in it, but there has been one with Green Lantern (John Stewart).  This set came with Green Lantern, Sinestro, Space Batman, Green Lantern’s Jet, Hal Jordan’s Lantern, and a yellow lantern prison cell. All together it has 174 pieces.

What I liked about it is that it is really well designed, complete with two stud shooters and two stick shooters on the wings of the jet.  There is also a “break away effect” on the yellow lantern prison cell.  I also enjoy that on each face there is a happy/calm face on one side and a mad/angry face on the other.  Each of these sets comes with a free comic book as well.  Overall, I really like this set, and I totally recommend it.
