Arrow Season 5 Completes the Set of Fall WB DC Releases

I haven’t seen the most recent season of Arrow, because my taste in superheroes is more light-hearted than this granddaddy of the DC TV universe, but I’m told that this was the season that built a new hero team with Mr. Terrific (Echo Kellum), Artemis (Madison McLaughlin), Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez), and Ragman (Joe Dinicol). Meanwhile, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is juggling being a hero with being the mayor of Star City, and the Human Target (Wil Traval) comes back […]

The Flash Season 3 Out in September

Continuing the chain of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment release announcements, here’s The Flash! This will be a great way for me to catch up on the second half of the season and relive Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) learning the hard way why speedsters shouldn’t change history. Plus, I’ll get to see more of Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) figuring out how to deal with her Killer Frost alter ego. Oh! And the singing crossover with Supergirl! The Flash: The Complete Third Season […]

Black Panther Trailer Released

Last night, Marvel Studios released the first trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie starring Chadwick Boseman. It’s framed as a conversation between Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue (seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross (previously seen in Captain America: Civil War and familiar to fans from Christopher Priest’s epic run on the Black Panther comic). I like the way they’re engaging the contradiction of Wakanda head-on: outsiders think it’s a third-world country, but […]

Plenty of Wonder Woman Merchandise Available

Some worried whether the Wonder Woman movie was getting enough marketing, but qualms were set aside after its opening weekend set records: Wonder Woman was a box office smash on its opening weekend, raking in more than $100 million domestically — a new record for a movie directed by a woman [Patty Jenkins]…. And it compares well to similar movies — that is, superhero flicks that aren’t sequels or ensemble films. While it’s not as big as the opening weekend […]

Wynonna Earp Only on Blu-ray

KC and I have been waiting for an announcement of Wynonna Earp coming to home video. We wanted to see what kind of show they made from old friend Beau Smith‘s stories, and we don’t have cable, thus no Syfy channel. Oddly, though, the only thing that’s been announced so far is a crowd-funded Blu-ray release estimated to be out in September. Co-producer (and comics publisher) IDW Entertainment has put up a campaign running for the next couple of months […]

Brigsby Bear Explores Creation as Therapy

Coming out July 28 in New York and Los Angeles is an odd little film starring Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live) called Brigsby Bear. James (Mooney, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Kevin Costello) is obsessed with the kids’ show Brigsby Bear, having seen all of its hundreds of episodes. His life is isolated, residing in a bunker with only his parents and the show for company. Then it’s all uprooted, and James decides to make a movie to finish […]

The Gifted: Do We Need Another Superhero TV Show?

Fox has begun releasing promotional videos for their upcoming X-Men TV show The Gifted. Here’s the trailer: Stephen Moyer (True Blood) and Amy Acker (Angel, Person of Interest) play parents who discover their children have powers and so go on the run from the government. This action-adventure series looks to be a bit more approachable than the visually stunning but confusing Legion show on FX, which is also X-Men-connected. Unfortunately, it also look pretty familiar. Kid has traumatic incident where […]
