Have You Seen the Wonder Woman Footage?

Will it take some sting off of the comic world in general not to have had a female led movie yet knowing the ultimate warrior is coming?

That’s right Wonder Woman is on the way.

New Wonder Woman

Who better to helm her own movie than Diana Prince, the Amazon we’ve dreamt about all our lives?

So far, the movie looks amazing, and you can tell DC is really excited to put it out there.

And Geoff really talks about it with respect, which is exactly what we want to hear.

The best fighter in the DC Universe?

Yes please.

Take a look at what we learned.

Suicide Squad Official Trailer: Worst. Heroes. Ever!

If you watched the DC look at the Justice League on The CW then you got your first look into all kinds of DC goodness, including the Suicide Squad trailer!

Here's your look again, courtesy of Warner Brothers.

And, what, exactly, is the Joker doing in the movie?

Well, Geoff Johns confirmed he most definitely is NOT a part of the Suicide Squad.

If you watch Arrow on The CW, then you probably already have an idea what to expect from a Suicide Squad movie.

But in theaters, expect it to be on steroids.

Starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and Oscar winner Jared Leto as the Joker among a plethora of others, this isn't one you want to miss.

So, what do you think?

Are you going to bookmark this and watch over and over again?

The Martian Won a Golden Globe for Best Picture – Comedy. Poll: Is It a Comedy?

The Martian won a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture – Comedy.

In doing so, it kept some very comical movies from their due.

Movies that otherwise wouldn’t have a shot at an award. Movies like Spy

Spy was very funny. From start to finish. It was meant to be. It was a genuine comedy for comedy’s sake.

When showing The Martian on the Golden Globes, they picked the one scene in which someone laughs out loud to try to prove their case it was a comedy.

Was it a fair assessment to put a dramatic movie about an astronaut fighting for his life after being left behind on Mars up against genuine comedies, even if it had some lighter moments?

You decide.

Take this handy dandy poll. It’s simple and to the point. If you really do think The Martian should have run as a comedy, say so.

But either way, drop a comment and let us know your reasoning. 

And please, don’t just use the answer that you want The Martian to win Best Picture in any way possible, so if it takes competing as a comedy to win, then comedy it is. 

That’s one slippery slope we never want to go down.

And to that I say…which was more funny, The Martian or The Hateful Eight? I’d reckon the latter to be full of more genuine laughs. So maybe IT should have been in the comedy category and wiped out The Martian all together.
