The Justice League is finally assembled for the DCEU’s answer to MCU’s The Avengers as Batman and Wonder Woman assemble a team to take on the invading army of Steppenwolf, who is looking to transform the Earth into an apocalyptic wasteland.
Tons of news this week including tons of news from both the DC and Marvel movies universes, Michael Bay producing a Dora the Explorer movie, Channel Zero reveals the premise of the third season, Freddy joins Dead by Daylight and much more.
The (most likely) final trailer for Justice League is here fresh from NYCC and while there’s a bunch of new footage, the general vibe is the same as Batman and Wonder Woman have to gather a team of heroes to defend the Earth from an alien threat.
This week on the podcast, Zach, Chris and Joe try to dissect all the news coming out of San Diego Comic Con last weekend and speculate on who could be in the last shot of the Justice League trailer, when the Avengers: Infinity War trailer will finally be released, what exactly is happening in Ready Player One, the addition of the Skrulls to the MCU and much more.
Steppenwolf arrives on Earth with an army of parademons and designs to conquer the planet, forcing Batman and Wonder Woman to recruit a team of fellow heroes to defend the planet in this fall’s massive DCEU team-up, Justice League.
Cars 3 took the number one spot over the weekend, despite one of the lowest ever openings for Pixar, while Rough Night tanked and All Eyez On Me and 47 Meters Down were surprisingly strong in their debuts.
Wonder Woman remained on the top of the charts while The Mummy failed in the US but seems like a hit everywhere else, giving Tom Cruise his biggest ever worldwide opening.
Zach and Chris head back to World War I for the first DC Extended Universe movie of 2017, Wonder Woman (Spoilers!)
After two messy (but still interesting, at least to us) DC Extended Universe movies last year, 2017 gets off on much more solid footing with the fantastic solo Wonder Woman movie, as the perfectly cast and bad ass Gal Gadot as Diana heads to World War I to hunt down Ares, the God of War, with American agent Steve Trevor (Chris Pine)
Wonder Woman destroyed the competition over the weekend with the highest ever opening for a female directed film and the 16th best opening of all time for comic book adaptations.
