Superman Should Be The Next DC Game

DC is full steam ahead with their upcoming games, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League and Gotham Knights but Superman is glaringly missing from the modern DC game library. With the success of the Batman: Arkham series, DC, and developer Rocksteady, have naturally been focused on those games. Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, also developed by Rocksteady, is even set in the same “Arkhamverse” as those games. So, what about Superman?

Where To Watch DC’s Animated Injustice Movie

DC Comics has released a new animated film based on the storyline of Injustice: Gods Among Us, a popular fighting game based in the DC Universe that spawned a sequel in addition to a series of graphic novels. At this point, most fans of the comic giant’s vast library of...

Here's Where You Can Watch DC's Injustice Movie

Gamers and longtime comic book fans are probably already familiar with the "Injustice" series. Originally a series of 2D fighting games created by NetherRealm Studios (the same people behind the "Mortal Kombat" franchise), "Injustice: Gods Among Us" and its sequels allows players to pit the DC Universe's greatest fighters against each other in an alternate reality where Superman has turned into a maniacal despot. It is accompanied by a series of graphic novels written by Tom Taylor, which fleshes out the story of Superman's transformation into a tyrant and Batman's attempts to resist him.

Injustice Review: Superman Unleashed Falls Flat

It's no more mister nice guy as the Man of Steel drops the kid gloves and unleashes his wrath on Earth's evil-doers. Injustice is an animated adaptation of the wildly popular, cross-platform video game fighting series. The plot takes place in an alternate reality where the heinous Joker (Kevin Pollak) pushes Superman (Justin Hartley) to an unfathomable extreme. He becomes judge, jury, and executioner. Splitting the Justice League with his intractable take on guilt or innocence. Injustice has a riveting first act, but unfortunately devolves into a rushed frenzy of carnage. What begins as a thoughtful exploration of grief and rage turns into mindless blood sport.

Superman Confirmed To Exist In The Marvel Cinematic Universe, See The Video

Even in a competing franchise, Superman has little equal. The Man of Steel exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Earth’s mightiest fictional superhero, a new Eternals featurette reveals. Marvel Studios released a clip of Sersi (Gemma Chan) and Ikaris (Richard Madden) meeting Phastos’ (Brian Tyree Henry) son Jack for the first time and he immediately mistakes Marvel’s Daedalus for his DC Comics equivalent, an alien being capable of supersonic flight and shooting lasers from his eyes. The confused Eternal readily deflects the comparison, but Jack is already asking Ikaris about his red billowing cape. Looks like Clark Kent is an even bigger celebrity than all six founding Avengers combined. Humanity may have pelted Superman with rocks, but in Marvel he remains the proverbial G.O.A.T. of superheroes. Check out the big reveal below:

DC’s Kryptonite: Why the Publisher is Disgracing Superman

The lurch into LGBT propaganda isn’t the only problem the regrettably neglected Superman franchise now suffers from. Breitbart reports the next lurch into far-left politics unlike anything you’d see in the Golden/Silver Ages is based on officially jettisoning the American Way from Superman’s slogan, for the sake of “a better tomorrow”:

Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition: Ways That Fixes Dawn of Justice

Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition is a decently censured movie and all things considered. Snyder’s vision for DC is established in Frank Miller’s understanding of the universe, particularly Batman. In addition to that, Snyder’s translation of characters like Batman and Superman depends on the crowd previously having a mainstream society comprehension of these characters.

The Injustice Movie Rushes A Story That Deserves A Slow Burn

The following will go into detail about the Injustice film’s deviations from the source material. I knew the animated adaptation of Injustice wasn’t going to be great, but I was wholly unprepared for the specific way it was going to be bad. The movie was positioned as an adaptation of the Year One comic series. This was the first of the five years that would lead into the Injustice: Gods Among Us fighting game, in which Superman has gone from the idealistic boy scout we know into a tyrant enforcing a police state across Earth. These comics cover five years because they show that Superman’s radicalization was slow and happened bit by bit as his principles were chipped away with each perceived betrayal of heroes like Batman who pushed against him. And for about 85 minutes of the movie’s roughly 90-minute runtime, that’s about what Injustice feels like. That is, until it takes a hard right turn that is so sudden and jarring it felt like the wind was knocked out of me.

Superman didn’t abandon We did.

At one point, “truth and justice” was enough. Prior to the United States’ involvement in World War II, the Superman serial cartoons by Fleischer Studios introduced its title character, the DC Comics superhero, “in a never-ending battle for truth and justice.” The narrator, Jackson Beck, simply ended it there. At the time, it was enough.

Eternals confirms Superman exists in the MCU

A Marvel’s Eternals Superman reference has seemingly confirmed that the Man of Steel exists in some form in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or at least that Marvel characters know about him. A clip showing the Eternals MCU Superman Easter egg has been shared online as part of the marketing for the latest Marvel movie’s theatrical release — possibly upsetting Superman fans further, given that there still hasn’t been a new movie confirmed for DC’s leading superhero.

Review: Injustice

The Joker has pulled off his ultimate prank on the surprising victim, the world’s most powerful hero, Superman. Tricking the Man of Steel into murdering his own pregnant wife and destroying all of Metropolis, the joke has gone too far. And as Superman takes his revenge on Batman’s notorious villain, it sets off a chain of events that will destroy everything the Justice League has worked towards.

The Flash Season 8 Trailer Previews Armageddon Crossover With Returns From Brandon Routh And More

This past weekend at DC FanDome, we got our first look at Grant Gustin’s new costume for The Flash Season 8, with his Barry Allen now rocking the DC Comics superhero’s classic gold boots. Several days later, The CW has dropped the first trailer for the upcoming season of The Flash, and it’s all about the “Armageddon” crossover event kicking things off. A new threat has surfaced that will require Barry and the rest of Team Flash to team back up with some familiar faces, including Brandon Routh’s Ray Palmer/The Atom.

A Hero Goes Too Far in ‘Injustice’ Out Now on Blu-Ray

DC Entertainment has made some really good animated movies. Many times they bring popular graphic novels to life and they usually do them justice. Other times they tell original stories that can be a lot of fun to watch unfold. When I heard Injustice was being made I hoped I might get to watch it. I was able to get a review copy of this film and here is my thoughts on it.

Smallville: The Complete Series Arrives On Blu-ray

Smallville: The Complete Series marks the 20th anniversary of its first episode by arriving on Blu-ray for the first time in its entirety. The series came about at an interesting time for the franchise but it would come to define Superman for an entire generation of fans. Obviously, nobody can replace Christopher Reeve as Superman but Tom Welling but his own mark on the Man of Steel. The latter films starring Reeve basically killed the film franchise and any future films went out the window with his getting paralyzed. Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, starring Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher, aired 1993-97 on ABC. Interestingly enough, a new Superman film starring Brandon Routh as the Man of Steel, Superman Returns, did premiere in 20016 while this series was on the air.
