Black Panther DVD Date, Details Announced

As I suspected, Black Panther will be available on home video on May 15, with digital release a week earlier on May 8. The Blu-ray Combo Pack has been renamed the Multiscreen edition, which means it comes with a digital copy (but no DVD). It’s currently available for preorder at many retailers for $23 or so. There’s a 4K Ultra HD edition that comes with Blu-ray and digital copy for $30. (Does anyone know anyone who’s shelled out for 4K […]

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Now THAT’s a Season Finale!

The only superhero TV show I’m actively eager to watch these days is DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, because it’s crazy fun. The “time-traveling losers” premise — the team members were selected because removing them from the timeline wouldn’t have any effect — allows for all kinds of stories in all kinds of places and times. They’ve done episodes about how important the movies of George Lucas were to inspiring people to become scientists and one where the women and people […]

Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay

Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay demonstrates how strong the movies in the DC Original Animated line can be when they’re not tied to the best-known characters or repeating widely read storylines. It’s a road trip/object chase movie with a ton of villains chasing after a magical MacGuffin. It’s rated R for “strong bloody violence throughout, sexual content, brief graphic nudity and some drug material”. And they mean it. The opening segment, a mission with Deadshot (Christian Slater, doing an excellent […]

DC Super Hero Girls are a bonafide phenomenon, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they’ve expanded into toys and DVDs, including an animated version of them as Lego toys, Lego DC Super Hero Girls: Brain Drain. That movie must have done well, since there’s now another coming out. Lego DC Super Hero Girls: Super-Villain High will be available May 1 on digital and May 15 on DVD. After a mysterious school opens across the street, the students of Super […]

Aggretsuko Comes to Netflix April 20

Out April 20 is a new animated show on Netflix. Aggretsuko consists of ten 15-minute episodes about Retsuko, a 25-year-old red panda who is an office associate in the accounting department of a trading company in Tokyo. All she wants is to do her job and get through the day, but when frustrations reach a boiling point, she vents through death metal karaoke.

Static Shock’s Fourth (and Final) Season Coming to DVD

As pointed out by World’s Finest, Warner Archive has posted a listing for Static Shock: The Complete Fourth Season, available April 24 for $24.99. The series, about an electrically powered teen superhero, has been long overdue for collecting, so I’m glad to see they’re going to finish out the series. I’m speculating that this will be a two-disc set, since season 4 consisted of these 13 epsiodes: “Future Shock” – Batman Beyond crossover set in the future “She-Back!” “Out of […]
