Ever since Zack Snyder took over as director of the latest DC Comics films (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Justice League) some of his creative choices have been...controversial, to say the least. Fans have been highly divided on the films, and the critical reception has been less than stellar. However, many people agree that the director's cut of Batman v Superman is a marked improvement over the theatrical release, adding to character arcs, explaining some murky story elements, and closing plot threads. With Justice League in a similar boat, fans are looking forward to seeing what Snyder's true vision for the film was, and whether the director's cut can improve the film in a fashion similar to that of Batman v Superman.
The Walking Dead TV series, based on Robert Kirkman’s comic book series of the same name, has been running since October 2010. Over the last ten years, viewers who have kept up with the show have grown attached to certain characters. Unsurprisingly, main character Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) became a fan favorite. When the character was written out of the main show back in season nine, fans wondered whether we may ever see the character in anything on the screen again. Those who are not caught up with what happened to Rick may want to stop here.
Star Wars fans are clamoring for more content on Disney+ now that it has been officially confirmed that all of the planned theatrical releases for the franchise have been pushed back by at least a year. Disney is pushing back the start of production on all Star Wars films until 2021.
DC is always on the move when it comes to their animated features. Whether it be shared universe films, standalones, or Elseworlds type of stories, DC animation can range from straightforward adaptations to complete reimaginings. Adding fuel to the hype, a trailer just debuted for the newly announced Batman: Death in the Family. Those familiar with the title may already know of the monumental 1988 storyline “A Death in the Family,” which resulted in the death of Jason Todd, the second Robin, at the hands of the Joker. This was made possible by the amount of fans who called a 1-900 number that year to let DC know whether or not they think Jason Todd should be killed.
The famed writer H.P. Lovecraft revolutionized the horror genre in a way that people had not seen before, or indeed since. The unique existential dread that his stories portrayed showed people a world where they were completely insignificant in every way, and that life had little meaning overall. In no way was this more brilliantly accomplished than with his pantheon of Ancient Ones, Elder Gods, and Great Ones. To even look upon them was to go mad. None of his creatures are as famous or popular as the Great Older God Cthulhu.
