Batman v Superman, why so much hate?

102597285-Batman-vs-Superman.1910x1000

I saw Batman v Superman opening day and I really liked it. Now the editing was a bit off at times, but i was drawn back in after those transitions.

People really have a problem with Superman, and how he was so dark and not the Donner Style of Superman. Well this is not the Donner world, remember that world later had Superman 3 and the Quest for Peace. This Superman was brought into a dark world, the type of world we live in now. He comes to this planet, stained and having to hid his powers that as a kid change him. He has to deal with hearing everyone’s thoughts, lazer eyes, this is a kid who growing up will have issues. He then loses his father who sacrifice his life to keep his son safe. Cut to years later he grows up and a bad guy from the past returns, attacks his mother, and his city. Causing death and destruction, he has to fight both them and our government. Then it comes down to him having to kill Zod to save humans, something that still haunts him. Which also shows the humans that Superman is willing to kill if he has to, even if its for “good”.

Also people are upset that Superman as killed at the end. We have to remember that even though this is the 2nd time we’ve seen this adaptation of Superman, he’s been on this planet for 3 years. Earth in this film has had Superman flying around for 3 years. In that 3 years he has had happy go-lucky-times with Lois and his life. When we come to this part of his life Batman is becoming more violent, and the government his coming down harder on him.

Then you come to Lex and many say he had no real purpose to attack Superman and Batman. He says in the film that his father lived a time where people threw flowers at dictators. He does not want to see that, so his plan is to kill Superman using Batman. Lex of course has a plan going past the death of Superman so he needs Batman out of the way. Which means ether they kill each other of as we see at the end Superman kills Batman and Doomsday kills Superman. The way to kill Doomsday after he kills Superman is with kryptonite, like how they do in the film. So Lex plans on having both Superman and Batman out of the picture anyway he can. If Superman did not die in the end I would have felt like it had no ending. He needed to die to redeem himself to the humans and for Batman to go back to his old ways.

I also liked how they introduced the future Justice League members. The Flash was cool, his speed force is more like real lightning, Aquaman was cool, and Cyborg was interesting because I really like that he’s a member of this team. Now I don’t know how a solo movie of him will work. Even the logos made by Lex Corp was OK with me, it didn’t take me out of the film. If we had seen that in an animated version no one would have a problem with it.

Now we come to the part everyone makes fun of. MARTHA! People are so mad that by Superman saying his mother’s name is also Martha makes him and Batman friends. No, the name does throw Batman off cause he thinks he’s talking about his mother at first and gets mad. Its when Lois tells him that Lex has his mother, who is named Martha. That’s when batman realizes that both him and Superman have been getting played. So he goes saves Superman’s mom and has Superman go fight Lex.

I will not understand why fans hate this film, it was good and I will be owning the uncut bluray!

Batman v Superman Trailer Review

Batman-vs.-Superman-Dawn-Of-Justice

The new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman film dropped yesterday. We got some incite to the film’s plot, and a few spoilers.

When the trailer opens up we see a press event taking place set up my LexCorp. Clark is there covering the event for the Daily Planet. Then Gotham’s must famous playboy millionaire Bruce Wayne shows up. We get a good look at Ben Affleck’s  Bruce. He’s older, and from the conversation with Clark about the diffrences between Superman and Batman, it looks as if Bruce knows that Clark is The Man of Steel.

We also get a reference to the Joker, you can tell when Affleck says, “Maybe its the Gotham City in me…” you can tell he’s been wanting to say that since childhood!

We then get to see Lex introduce the two hero’s in a very corny fashion. It’s like Gene Hackman’s Lex Luthor but as a young man. Although the whole hand shaking line from Lex saying how firm Clark’s was is stupid.

It’s shown that Bruce and Lex have meet in the past, most likely is business passing.

We then get another look into the Batman dream sequence with Superman, cause that’s what it is.

What I thought was interesting is that we get are first bat swear in a movie, “That Son of a Bitch.” I’m sure he must have said “damn” at some point. But throwing at an SOB, this is a more angry, bitter, Batman we are getting.

Lex then says the title of the movie again as he has Lois captured. Which short of shows that he probably knows that Clark is Superman.

Then we get the whole movie RUINED when the studio and the editor of the trailer spoil the surprise plot. We see that Lex is using Zod’s body for some experiments, now we have seen these same things in the previous trailer. What we get to see now is the reveal of DOOMSDAY! Yep, the main villain of the movie and he’s most likely going to be on screen for maybe 20mins. Why show everyone this and not wait to surprise people at the theaters?

Also we get a funny joke between Batman and Superman about Wonder Woman. “She with you?” “I thought she was with you?” ADD LAUGH HERE!

All in all, I liked the trailer. It has its fair share of funny, serious, action, and comic book homage scenes. Will this by past Nolan’s Batman Series in the box office? We shall see, all I know for sure is that nothing is going to beat Star Wars until maybe Captain America: Civil War.

Lex Zuckerberg is here!

Zack Snyder and Warner Brothers just released a pic of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE.

lex-luthor

Many have debated on whether or not this new Lex would have hair, well its official we have a bald Lex!

Also he looks terrifying! When I first heard that Eisenberg was cast as The Man of Steel’s arch nemesis I was OK with it. As I’ve said on here before I’m not a fan of The Social Network, but seeing his performance as the fake character Mark Zuckerberg and how evil and manipulative he was made me think that he could be a good Lex Luthor.

Eisenberg, from what I’ve seen in interviews, is sort of an arrogant and self-centered person and again great elements for Lex!

I’m also OK with his age, 31, cause now a days business moguls are in their late 20’s and 30’s.

This is how I think they are going to use the Lex Luthor in the film:

After the events of Man of Steel Metropolis is ground zero and several people don’t know whether to trust Superman or not. Then LexCorp comes in to help rebuild the city, with the help of Wayne Enterprise and his CEO Bruce Wayne. Lex doesn’t trust Superman, blames him for the events of Man of Steel and bringing aliens to earth. He takes the body of Zod to see what these aliens are made out of. He also works with the US Government looking over what they could use to fight something like Superman. Lex looks to Bruce for help in finding ways to defeat Superman if needed. Bruce is willing to work with Lex just to know what all he’s up to. Bruce is doing his own experiments and most likely already knows who Superman is.

But that’s just my idea, I do wish we get a glimpse of the robot suit Lex wears.

The worst part is that we have to wait till 2016 to see any of this.

“GOTHAM” The Mask Spoiler Review

goth6

So in this episode we get introduced to both Hush and Black Mask. Similar to how Hush is done in the comics he is around the same age as Bruce, but we see in this version that he bullies Bruce and they get into a fight. In the comics they’re friends, now this is the first time we see Hush so they may become friends as the series goes on.

gotham-the-mask_article_story_large

With Black Mask they show him as a business man who hires people by having them fight to the death, and who ever wins gets the job. In the episode he wears a black Japanese mask. Foreshadowing what he will become one day. I was excited when I saw the title to this episode because I’ve been wanting to see a live-action version of Black Mask. So far this show has picked up when it comes to villains origins.

Gotham 108P_1001

The Penguin is getting stronger and stronger, you can see his power in the crime world getting bigger. Fish Mooney really wants to take down Falcone but we don’t really know why. She got some paper that she said could unravel Falcone’s whole operation. However I think Falcone knows that Fish is up to and now that one of her henchmen told Penguin that there’s someone close to Falcone that is working for Fish Mooney.

Barbara is just like Iris on The Flash series, she’s so underwritten and serves no purpose then to be a love interest to out main character.

We get to see Catwoman again, I really hope they explore her character out more. She the only classic Bat Man villain that has no been really explored a lot.

I just can’t wait to see Scarecrow and Hugo Strange!

“CONSTANTINE” Spoiler Review

tumblr_nejfmt3j3F1t3sxdco2_r2_400

So we all know that the film based on the very Dark Horse Comic CONSTANTINE starring Keanu “WHOAAAA” Reeves. Well with shows like ARROW, THE FLASH, and GOTHAM DC Comics is ruling the airwaves right now. These shows are dark and well put together, GOTHAM is getting better. So NBC jumped on the band wagon and has given us CONSTANTINE!

oxqnhgz04tnigfny2j0z

This show in my opinion rants right up there with ARROW with the dark tones and writing. CONSTANTINE is a very interesting character and this representation is honest to the comic. Matt Ryan is fantastic in the role, he embodies the character so well and you can tell that he is tormented by his past,

We learn that John Constantine is a man who wants to escape who he is and what he;s meant to do. After he accidentally damned a little girl to hell who was taken over by a demon while in the process damning his own soul to hell. Haven given up the life of an exersist and demonnologist he is roped back in after the ghost of his mentor tells him to find his daughter and defeat the demon that is out to get her.

We get to meet our side characters, Manny an angel who wants Constantine’s help to track down and defeat demons that are on earth. Manny tells Constantine that if he helps him his soul could be saved.

The other character we got to meet his Constantine’s “oldest” friend Chas. Who may or may not be some sort of superhuman.

In the 2nd episode we get to see Constantine at his best. Fighting demons, and being a smart ass. We also get to meet another new character Zed Martin, who may have some sort of telepathic powers as she has drawn countless pictures of Constantine.

The show has sort of a Noir feel to it, and since it lives in the world of “magic” they have the right to use characters in their catalog similar to Shazam and Black Adam.

So DC has done it again, I just hope MARVEL can catch up with AGENT CARTER and DAREDEVIL.

Scarecrow coming to GOTHAM, sort of…

goth6

So the producers of GOTHAM have announced that Scarecrow and Jonathan Crane will make an appearance on the show. However he won’t be the Scarecrow, his father is going to be. Jonathan Crane is going to be the same age as Bruce, in the new comics his father experiment with fear gas and his father tested it on him also.

tumblr_n6xo39xQmF1qgl2tmo2_500

So ether his father will be a doctor at Arkham Asylum or just some lunatic creating toxic weapons. Arkham is going to be the main story arc around the midseason of GOTHAM.

I ended up liking what they did with Zasaz on the show, and I’m interested to see what they do with the Scarecrow. I just hope they don’t kill the father character off, put him in Arkham or having him escape.

“GOTHAM” Ep. 7 Spoiler Review

goth6

Jim Gordon is a BAD ASSSS!

Finally the Jim Gordon we’ve been waiting for, everyone thinks he’s this weak little detective but in reality he can kick some ass! This episode started out strong. We see that The Penguin is growing in the world of organized crime, having his own guys now. We see that Harvey isn’t happy with Gordon that he lied to him. Fish Mooney is also not happy that Oswald is alive because he knows her plan to bring down Falcone. Although I think that Falcone knows that Fish is out to be the top mobster in the city. We get introduced to Victor Zasaz in this episode, he’s an enforcer of Falcone sent to pick up Gordon. I was afraid that they would mess up Zasaz and yes they changed is origin a bit, but we have to also remember this is a prequel series. But he’s a cold blooded killer, we see him kill a hurt cop (and they show it happen point blank range), and then he takes a box cuter and cuts a tally mark in his arm (which they also show and its terrifying).

First-look-at-Victor-Zsasz-gotham-37635852-245-245

This is the darkest episode of the season so far. I think once you bring in a character like Zasaz in you’re gonna change things. The Penguin is becoming a more influential figure in GOTHAM’S crime scene. You can tell that he’s playing Maroni to what he wants, and by the end of episode you find out that Falcone is using Oswald to bring down Maroni and Fish Mooney.

Fish Mooney said it in the episode that Falcone doesn’t seem to worried about Maroni and his crew. He’s been around a long time and he knows how the system works. Even when Gordon comes to arrest him he’s not worried, he pulls the strings in GOTHAM. He knows that Gordon is a good cop, and if he needs his enemies out of the wa he’ll need men like Gordon to take them in. Getting more people out of the way means he’s business grows.

c1d79190-454f-0132-4154-0ebc4eccb42f4170491-gotham+5+image+1

Zasaz is still just a low level enforcer, but I’m pretty sure they’re going to send him to Arkham Asylum where he’ll grow to be more crazy.

Harvey comes back to help Gordon, knowing he’s dead one way or another. Plus he knows GOTHAM and the crime scene. I see them like Kevin Costner and Sean Connery in The Untouchables. They’re going to clean up GOTHAM, even if that means their life is on the line while doing it.

The exposition at the end seemed a bit forced. However you can also see that Penguin is playing Falcone as well. He wants to be on top and will do anything to get there.

A storm is coming….

“ARROW” season 3 Ep. 1-4 Spoiler Review

816088logosrie

So I finished ARROW season 1 & 2 on Netlix and now I’m starting season 3.

Season 2 was dark and very violent and the Deathstroke character was the perfect villain, much more entertaining then Merlin in the first season. Now in season 3 we get Ra’s al Ghul as are main villain.

We start the season with a sort of flashback villain, Vertigo. I think that character type will be a constant bad guy Oliver has to face. This first episode was OK, I’m not a huge fan of him and Felicity getting together. When they go out it just felt awkward, a forced romance. I like that they take Oliver off the island and show us how he knows who Amanda Waller was. We saw a tease oh her shoes in the past seasons. The big WTF of the episode was when Sara got killed, this scene reminds me a lot of the ending to the first episode of HOUSE OF CARDS. We have a cool main character that we got to like and are interested to see where she goes and then she gets killed off.

anigif_original-grid-image-31107-1412816773-12

In the 2nd episode is OK, its there to only help push Laurel’s story arc of becoming the Canary. The scene where they buried Sara’s body seemed out of place. They’re just burring her body at a very lite cemetery…alright then. We also get to see Tommy again in a flashback, that was cool I guess. We also find out at the end of this episode that Thea is being trained by her father Malcolm to be a fighter, or a killer like him.

The 3rd episode Oliver finds out where is sister is hiding and goes to bring her back to Starling City. Instead of an Oliver flashback in this episode we get a Thea flashback, showing her the months of Malcolm training her. We also get a plot where Diggle has to stop a rogue agent who wants to sell identities of agents, which includes Diggel’s wife. Thea finally decides to go back with her brother, but you can tell she’s not the same Thea who left Starring City.

Episode 4 gets really juicy when Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter/Sara’s former lover comes looking for her. She tell’s Oliver that Sara was checking on leads that Malcolm Merlin was still alive. So everyone suspects that we was the one who killed Sara. We get to see a dark side of Laurel in this episode who at this point wants revenge over the death of her sister. As the story goes along you start to see that yes Malcolm is a killer, but he was most likely not the one who killed Sara.

Ra's_al_Ghul

My guess its someone that Ra’s al Ghul sent, since we find out when we see him that he never fully expect her in the League of Assassins. We learn in the flashback that Weller was for a fact the one behind the attempted plane crash that Oliver stopped on the island. We also learn that on the plane was Chine White, the triad villain in the first season. So that character is going to be factor in this season some way or another.

Now on new character I want to talk about is Ray Palmer played by former Superman Brandon Routh. In the comics he’s a good guy, he’s funny so far in the show and I really doubt that he’s a bad guy. I think by the midseason episode we’ll see him team up with Oliver and his team.

arrow-season-3-partner

So that’s my thoughts on the first four episodes of season 3 of ARROW, I’ll be reviewing and spoiling this weeks episode on Thursday!

Victor Zsasz in GOTHAN, is this Good or Bad?

goth6

A lot of villains have been speculated to make an appearance in GOTHAN. Victor Fries, Hugo Strange, The Joker, but one name that really got my attention was Victor Zsasz. Such a great Batman villain and he was so under used in Batman Begins and I’m excited to see how they use him in GOTHAM. Cause lets be honest the last few villains we’ve gotten are not up to par to some of the big named villains.

gotham-106-gcpdbullpen-9688-109845

GOTHAM and ARROW have already shared villains with the Dollmaker and now GOTHAM and FLASH are sharing an actor. Anthony Carrigan played The Mist in THE FLASH and is now playing Zsasz.

The new promo FOX has given us though is a bit silly. First the Penguin just walks in the police station and now Zsasz just jumps in and demands to see Jim Gordon…oh gezz. It’s cool that we get to see the cuts on his body and him cutting himself. But from this trailer does worried me that the show will take this dark sinister character and just turn him to just another mob hitman that could be replaced by any other character.

I guess we’ll have to wait for ep.7 “Penguin’s Umbrella”

“THE FLASH” Ep.4 Spoiler Review

tumblr_n5hmefclhr1rlylr1o4_r1_500

What’s the one problem in having a character like CAPTAIN COLD and MR. FREEZE? Ice or cold puns galore!

Yes we did get out fail share of cold puns in this episode, but its not Batman & Robin.

Wentworth Miller play a very CHILLY bad guy, with is monotone voice that reminds me of MR. FREEZE from the Batman: Animated Series.

ibbalpStz4EfGt

In the episode CAPTAIN COLD is out to get a diamond, OK that’s a little like Batman & Robin. He’s the biggest FLASH villain and he pushes Barry to limits he hasn’t faced yet. He’s not a metahuman so he uses skills and a cold gun to get what he wants. He’s scary because he shows little to no emotion, plus I like how he got away and didn’t get caught.

I liked how Felicity Smoak made an appearance in this episode. I really want to see her and Barry get together.

tumblr_ne6n7pXehR1sr6d2do1_500

I just don’t like how Barry is crushing on his half-sister, I also want to see Iris’ relationship with Eddie get more involved and then maybe see him become a bad guy.

You can also tell that Dr. Wells knows more about Felicity then what he said at the lab. We know he’s from the future so he most likely knows something could be a game changer for ARROW. Also he’s line about how Barry has not gone as fast as he can, he then corrected himself by says that’s what they speculate. Those hits is what makes this show GREAT!

Best episode so far, best villain so far and with the after credit scene I wonder who CAPTAIN COLD is teaming up with. At first I thought it would be Caitlin Snow’s “dead” boyfriend aka FIRESTORM, but no its someone else. I’m sure we’ll find out soon wh it is.
