The recent DC FanDome event was probably one of the most massive events for comic book movies, especially during this pandemic, which has been feeling like forever. DC FanDome conquered every comic book-related corner via reveals from DC Entertainment, including teaser trailers for The Batman starring the menacing Robert Pattinson and the Snyder Cut of Justice League, as well as revealing the new title for the sequel to 2019’s hit film Shazam! Starring Zachary Levi, who, along with Asher Angel, is back as the titular character whose civilian identity is Billy Batson.
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga was previously known to have been scheduled for a release sometime in late 2020. The closer that we have gotten to the end of the year, the less likely it seemed that this would still be the case. With some of the video game delays that have gone on over the last several months, the possibility did not seem like it would be much of a surprise.
Thanks to the pandemic induced scheduling halt on film production, many of the Phase 4 MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) films and series were put on hold. There is finally an update for the final installment of the Ant-Man trilogy from the director himself, Peyton Reed. A fan recently asked Reed how things were progressing on the film on Twitter. Reed replied, “Going well sir.”
I had the opportunity to interview my friend Carrie Bernans, an award-winning actress and stunt woman. She is well known for Marvel's Black Panther, Luke Cage, and Avengers, as well as CBS series SEAL Team and more.
There is no doubt that The Snyder Cut of Justice League panel at DC FanDome, a virtual convention for various media related to DC Comics, became a hot topic among the superhero movie fan community. Snyder’s interpretation of the 2017 film will be released in four parts, one hour each, on HBO Max. A trailer for Snyder’s version came out of the panel, set to the song “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen. Oddly, there is no dialogue to go with the visuals, just this song.
Last Saturday's DC FanDome virtual convention offered us an incredible look at upcoming DC properties, one of the most exciting of which is James Gunn's The Suicide Squad.
