Arrow vs. Flash

Sometime in the last couple of weeks, I got to see The Flash and Green Arrow team up.  There was playful banter, crossing of super hero teams, and clashes in physical and mental approaches to situations.    In the big crossover event between CWs The Flash and Arrow, I got to see in live action what I’ve only seen in animated movies and comic books for DC characters.  Marvel has been dominant with their franchise so far.  They were first to get a team of heroes all on one screen to fight a larger threat and it was freaking awesome.

And I’m saying that as a DC fan.  Since 2008, Marvel Studios has hammered down their connected universe and are even backed with Marvel movies from Fox and Sony.  Even though not all of these movies are true cinematic gems, I still watched them, I probably enjoyed them, and then they all made lots of money.

So where’s DC in all of this?  2008 was the latest highpoint in the DC cinematic universe with the release of The Dark Knight.  We got Green Lantern, The Dark Knight Rises, and Man of Steel, but let’s be honest, no one holds a close enough candle to say Avengers, Captain America 2, and more recently Guardians of the Galaxy.  And comparitively, Marvel and the affiliated studios have been releasing up to three movies a year vs. Warner Bros./DC’s 1.

So all in all the cinematic candle won’t come close until 2016 when DC finally kicks off its connected cinematic universe with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  And they still might not come close.  But action stews further away from the silver screen.  But what about the smaller screen candle?

DC has taken to television before.  Besides animated favorites like Justice League, Teen Titans, and Young Justice, shows like Smallville, The Flash (1990), and Birds of Prey were somewhat popular.  But now in this age of where superhero and comic book based media isn’t lame anymore, DC has really let their shows fly and their audiences with them.

Boy has it been an incredible past couple of weeks for DC Comics in the mainstream.  Of course, there are always news when it comes to what’s new in the comic book world, but for everyone else, television and movies are often the only outlets to some of the comic book properties.  2014-2015 television shows are being picked up and their initial trailers are being released and movie news for 2016 and beyond.  Among these, it appeared that NBC, CW, Fox, and Warner Bros got together and said, “the month of May is when we’re gonna release all the awesome DC-related news”.  Of course they didn’t actually do that, but damn it, it sure looked that way.  In today’s post, we’re gonna take a look at all the related news that was released that are DC Comics related.

Now this is a cool clip.  This is a fan-made [I wish I could credit, but it’s so hard these days, someone please remind me if they know] storyboard of how they would include the Joker in [SPOILERS] ……..the scene where Bane releases the inmates of Blackgate and possibly Arkham Asylum ………….[END SPOILERS].  The article had the following subtitles:

Bane: Who’s in there

Henchman: The Clown

Bane: …Leave him

There was a lot of debate in whether or not if the Clown Prince of Crime were included on what his role was, and I think this could of settled a good reason as to why he wasn’t present if he were to be included.  Your thoughts?

The Dark Knight Rises continue to dominate this week’s posts with more and more awesome things surfacing.  Whilst looking back at the Dark Knight trailer for old time goosebumps, I stumbled upon this well done trailer to the entire trilogy.  The monologue fits beautfiully and hearing ‘ol Heath’s voice is near spine chilling.  This trailer truly encompasses not just Batman, but the growth and journey of Bruce Wayne.  The trailer itself is about 6 minutes long but is absolutely entrancing to watch.  It includes clips from all three movies and fits so beautifully together.  Stop reading this and seriously press the play button.  And then when you’re done, press play again.

College Humor has created one of the greatest web series out there, titled project “Badman”.  This web series is essentially a parody of how ridiculous Batman can be.  Batman is portrayed as an idiot in this series.  It’s almost indescribable how awesome this is.  There is definite comic gold in making fun of the way Batman speaks, and putting him in compromising situations is even better.  Check out the entire playlist here.

The Dark Knight Rises will be popular for a while now, and we’ll continue to be promoting how awesome it is. Here’s a behind the scenes picture of Bane and Batman, aka Tom Hardy and Christian Bale having a talk after a scene. It’s awesome, especially because Tom Hardy had to express all his emotion through his eyes in the movie, and he’s doing it right now. I’m definitely sure that if you could Photoshop his eyes to make him look angry or even sad, this scene would be entirely different. A project that I’ll look back into later.

My Catwoman is finally done.  It took a while, and I see flaws all over it.  But I’m exhausted over this project.  I’ll definitely be keeping things to smaller scale for a while.  Later today, I’m going to post my article about my step by step process of drawing this, so stay tuned!

Cracked has a series called After Hours where they take a group of highly opinionated individuals and break down a random subject by looking at its history and legacy.  In this episode, they debate whether or not Batman is actually good for Gotham.  They use points like his sanity, the villains he creates, and how he could actually truly benefit Gotham by not being Batman.  See the well seasoned debate above.
