Preview: Joker

By Grace Crowley The decision to revive the character of the Joker is brave. Following Jared Leto’s disappointing portrayal of the maniacal villain in Suicide Squad, it seemed no actor would ever come close to either Jack Nicholson or Heath Ledger’s success in the role. But, following the release of the teaser trailer for 2019’s […]

Review: Legends of Tomorrow: Episode 3 Blood Ties

Wonder Woman, The Flash, and … Cyborg? – We examine the DC franchise 6 year plan

Superheroes. Can’t live without them. Obviously not literally. But DC and Marvel have a plan. Their plan, between them, is to release every single film to be made from now until 2020.
