Now At Mid-Season, DC Universe’s Series “Titans” Is Really Good. Check Out Its Latest Teaser (Trailer)

Okay, so slide me a late-to-the-party pass. But I am glad I checked this out at all. It did NOT pass the eyeball test for me at first. Robin’s costume is cool, but everyone else had me thinking meehhh…

But this series is actually really good! I think DC Universe is still running it’s free week-long trial. Check it out for yourself. I got the trailer embedded above, but I think you need an entire episode to really get into it.

Hugh Jackman Remembers Stan Lee As ‘A Creative Genius’ (Video)

Man. Marvel’s Stan Lee was the man. Coolest ‘old dude’ ever – neck and neck with Hugh Hefner. Both were forever young, even in their 90s. Rest In Peace to one of the greats. Let’s let ‘Wolverine’ speak on it.

‘The Front Runner’ star Hugh Jackman remembers thinking his portrayal of Wolverine would make him the center of attention on the red carpet at Comic-Con. That was until the paparazzi abandoned him for Stan Lee.

“X-Men: Dark Phoenix” Hits Theaters Valentine’s Day 2019 (Trailer)

Surely comic book version purists were miffed at when the X-Men movie franchise messed with several storylines in the first trilogy (esp. in ‘The Last Stand’… Cain Marko aka Juggernaut is NOT a mutant). But this “Dark Phoenix” might, just might, try to steer in the direction of comic canon.

See, in ‘The Last Stand’ Jean Grey did all she could (with Professor X’s …um …help) to control the Dark Phoenix within. But we had no idea where the Phoenix came from. It was like Jean had a super-powered schizophrenic evil alter ego; one that was just there, that Xavier wouldn’t dare let Jean let out. Which likely left longtime ‘X-men’ readers yelling at the screen: HELLO! Phoenix is a COSMIC entity! Where’s the outer space part of the story!???!

Well, fingers crossed, the trailer above could be letting us know that they are going there. FINALLY! Saw a little bit of a space trip in there, but look and see if you see it, too.

(Plus, the teaser text after the jump. Really promising the good goods!)

So far, the ‘prequel’ and ‘alternate’ storyline movies (‘First Class,’ ‘Days Of Future Past,’ and ‘Apocalypse’) of the franchise have scaled up well as far as ‘popcorn effect’ goes… complex story arcs, conflicted characters, BIG explosions and massive destruction scenes from torn down cityscapes to ripped up ocean floors. And a plethora of X-Men are in play (most everyone but Wolverine, unless you count quick cameos). So whatever they choose to do with them and this story we can trust it’ll be epic, well worth the price of admission.

Of course, we will know that for sure by February of next year!

Comedy: Black Superman Vs. Hispanic Superman (Video)

Who knew that this Superman game got this deep, mane? Well, these two did obviously. Hilarious! They went there from jump (or should I say ‘leap’… as in ‘tall buildings in a single bound’… get it… anybody?).

It’s a head-to-head matchup between Rudy Mancuso & King Bach to see which Man of Steel reigns supreme.

The Strong Black Women Of Marvel’s Luke Cage (Video)

Mm mm mm! Lucky Luke Cage. That’s what they ought to call him in the series. Because in the show’s corner of the Marvel Universe, the women are CHOICE. Like Taster’s Choice. Like strong, sweet, Black coffee…

Yes, Black women are strong, but we also need space to be vulnerable.
Women who lead and love Marvel’s Luke Cage discuss turning their pain into power.
– Strong Black Lead

Oh, go binge Seasons 1 & 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage (on Netflix) if you just missed that whole ‘coffee’ reference. In short, it’s code wording between Luke and the women he is going to ‘blend’ (ha)!

“Shazam!” Will Tell The Origin Story Of DC’s Captain Marvel On The Big Screen (Trailer)

Wonder if they will work Captain Marvel (DC’s Captain Marvel, not the one over in the MCU; she’s a woman) into the Justice League… the story and the hero team… like they did in the animated “Justice League Unlimited” series on Cartoon Network back a few years ago.

New Line Cinema’s “Shazam!,” the origin story that stars Zachary Levi (TV’s “Chuck”) as the titular DC Super Hero, along with Asher Angel (TV’s “Andi Mack”) as Billy Batson, and Mark Strong (the “Kingsman” movies) in the role of Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.
– Warner Bros. Pictures

Seems like they are really leaning in on the middle-school kid in a grown-up superhero’s body. Nothing wrong with that. Hope it works out to be a good origin storytelling experience. We will see April 2019.

The Latest DC Universe Film, “Aquaman,” Coming To Theaters December 21, 2018 (Trailer)

Alright! Go Team DC. With the new badass “Aquaman” movie coming out. Check out the trailer that touches on memories of a school-age Arthur Curry, family intrigue, battling his arch-nemesis Black Manta, and more.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.

DC Universe Presents: “Titans” (Series Trailer)

One of the first series to air exclusively on DC’s upcoming streaming service, DC Universe… Here’s the series trailer for “Titans” (short for “Teen Titans”). Conspicuous by his absence on the team: Cyborg (expected though, since that character was featured prominently on the “Justice League” movie). Cyborg not being on the team will be eclipsed by Starfire’s look and outfit; barely in keeping with anything that resembles what’s in the comics. Take a look and see if you likes though.

“Titans” follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Pre-order now at DCUniverse.com. #DCUniverse

WHOA! Did… Did Robin grunt, “F**K Batman?” in this trailer???!!

Could Ant-Man Be The Most Powerful Avenger? (Video)

This one is more [theoretical] science than science fiction, and I will tell you in advance… I did not get it (even after the second watch) totally. But that last ‘outtake’ point that Kyle makes… I got that the first time! In fact, me and @RealSuperKing were talking about the ‘mass problem’ on “Ant-Man” in a different way while back: When he gets super-tiny, but retains his mass, wouldn’t he crack anyone’s arm he ran up?? SCIENCE!!

When you think of powerful Avengers, you probably think of Hulk or Thor, but should we be considering Ant-Man too? Kyle has the quantum realm science on this week’s “Because Science”!

This ep is awesome to watch. Now, do NOT let all this ruin your movie-watching experience. I won’t. In fact, I’m hoping to see an ‘easter egg’ in the “Ant-Man And The Wasp” movie that hints at Ant-Man giving Thanos the business… and saving the world #InfinityWars #HelpUsScottLang #MaybeOurOnlyHope

New ‘Bumblebee’ Transformer Movie Features Iconic Yellow Volkswagen Beetle Vehicle Form (Trailer)

Not mad at this at all. Feels like this flick’s storytelling will move closer to the comics and old cartoons. Good stories, maybe enough to pull a good movie from. When the Transformers emerged from 4 million years stasis on Earth, Bumblebee was a key figure. Though not the biggest or strongest, he was often entrusted with important spy missions, with protecting the Witwickys (Sparkplug, who helped discover a fuel conversion process for the Autobots, and his son Buster)… plus he could SWIM (comic fact-checking by ojones1, so y’all can ‘at’ him if you wanna argue, hahaaaa)!

Of course, Hollywood won’t stick to the 80s story too tight, but this still could make for a good holiday film.
