PATREON | Aquaman Review

I realise this review is two years late and on the heels of The Trench (which I was looking forward to) being cancelled. Still, the 2019 Aquaman film by James Wan is, in my opinion, the best DCEU film to date. Talking about it now is still as good as ever.

The Batman To Introduce Earth-2 To The DCEU

This week, THR reported on WarnerMedia’s updated film slate for the current decade. Amongst the cancelled projects include Aquaman spin-off film The Trench directed by James Wan and the Ava DuVernay-directed New Gods film. Wan is still set to direct Aquaman 2 and DuVernay is still attached to the upcoming DCTV show Naomi for the CW.

PATREON | Zack Snyder's Justice League Review

Before I begin this review, I suppose I should start by answering the first question most people probably have:

Is Zack Snyder's Justice League better than the Joss Whedon theatrical cut we experienced in 2017?

In terms of style and tonal consistency, yes. In terms of telling a more complete story, yes. In terms of execution, this is where the mileage may vary.

Infinite Frontier Is Here Part 02: Where Does Helena Wayne Fit In?

With the debut of Infinite Frontier #0 this past Tuesday, there are probably more questions than answers as to how some of our favourite characters fit into this new infinite continuity of infinite possibilities. Two of those questions I have concern the Earth-2 Huntress and Power Girl: 'where are they now?' and 'what are their futures?'

At best, with Power Girl, we can probably expect her to still be the Earth-2 survivor of Crisis on Infinite Earths while the rest of Justice Society were all integrated into the main DC Earth. The events of Infinite Crisis that saw the brief return of the Earth-2 Superman and Lois Lane are most likely still a part of Power Girl's canon in the Infinite Frontier era. But what about her long lost best friend, the original Huntress from Earth-2?

Infinite Frontier Is Here Part 01: The Omniverse Explained

This week, DC officially started their Infinite Frontier era with the one-shot Infinite Frontier #0, which gave readers a glimpse of the new status quo. During their two month event, Future State, DC also released the Generations: Shattered and Generations: Forged one-shots, which introduced readers to the Linearverse.

Just what exactly is the Linearverse, and how does this tie into the current Omniverse Dark Nights Death Metal established? Is the Metaverse from Doomsday Clock still relevant? How does it all come together in a cohesive DC timeline that actually makes sense? More importantly, how do characters like Power Girl and the original Helena Wayne Huntress tie into the main DC canon moving forward, especially as characters tied to DC's Earth-2 universe?

Earth-2 Huntress Makes A Surprise Cameo in DC Love Is A Battlefield One-Shot

It's Valentine's Day today! My favourite day of the year for talking about Helena Wayne's love life, and making Valentine's Day graphics with Huntress and Power Girl. (In fact, you can check out the ones I've already made this year on my Instagram.)

Normally, on this day, I would be writing essays, opinion pieces, or even a fun 'Top #s' list on Helena Wayne's significant relationships. But for once, DC actually delivered the goods themselves!

Death Metal Ends And Infinite Frontier Begins

DC Comics welcomes the first week of 2021 with a big bang! Literally! On the first week of January, Dark Nights: Death Metal delivered its epic finale that not only launched DC's two-month event Future State on the same day, but more importantly, started the new era of DC: Infinite Frontier

What exactly is Infinite Frontier? It's hard to say at this point in time with so many details still being revealed as 2021 continues to roll out. What we do know as of Death Metal's conclusion is that DC is back to—spoiler alert—having an infinite multiverse again. Huh? What does this even mean? Does this mean the pre-Crisis DC Multiverse is back or something different? Well, the answer to that is 'both.'

Huntress Podcast E40: Justice League of America #160 [Audio]

Our favourite, The Huntress is not only teamed up with the Justice Society of America, but she is in full hijinx with the Justice League of America as well. A ruthless Time Lord's (not that one) super computer has gone mad haywire, and only these two supergroups can stop a intergalactic/interstellar calamity.
