The Man of Steel

Alright I am the farthest thing from being superman's biggest fan, but he is still a big actually a huge part of the dc universe and I must respect his character.So when I heard that zack snyder was going to do the next superman movie I was initially excited, but then I heard that they were using zod as the villain and that really ticked me off.The man of steel has a lot of great villains, but we never get to see them, because the people of hollywood are idiots.Let me list out some of the villains they should have use brainiac,doomsday,metallo,darkseid,silver banshee,parasite or even lex luthor, but only if they did it correctly maybe have him in a armored suit blasting the kryptonian with kryptonite.Side thought I find it ironic and very sad that christopher reeve who is truly known for playing superman{or clark kent} one of the most powerful super heroes becomes handycaped in real life then passed away.Another thing about the new movie that agggrivates a lot of people is the fact that a brittish guy is portraying the most iconic american character out there.I am sure that people are dissappointed in the fact that the new movie release date has been pushed back as well.My personal opinion is that the show smallville is without a doubt the best adaptation of the superman legacy.It was cool seeing the character grow up and become his own from his initial resentful relationship with jor el to the relationship with his earth parents martha and jonathan kent to the downfall of lex luthor and the introduction of other dc characters.In closing I hope that they can do a better job adapting the new movie and proving so many of us comic book fans wrong.

The Secret Six

I truly dig the secret six in my opinion they are extremely badass. I only have one of their stories and am eager to read more of them.Let me inform those of you who are unaware of who the secret six are they are basically a team of dc villains or super criminals who are forced to work and go on missions for the government.The team is headed by none other than then powerman genius bane.It also has the bullseye marksman deadshot who is a lesser known batman villain.The secret six also has lesser known but still interesting characters like king shark, catman,dwarfstar,giganta and black alice.The secret six is a lot like the suicide squad in that they are working for their freedom.I think a secret six movie would be sweet, but I think a television series might be even better so you could see them go on several missions.The group usually reports to amanda waller who is very political active and has a lot of connections to several different characters in the vast dc universe.Thats all I have on the secret six for now.

The Emerald Archer!!

Today I would really like to discuss the green arrow(aka oliver queen).I like green arrow a lot and feel he should be on the big screen.Oliver Queen is very similiar to Bruce Wayne( or batman) in the fact that he has a lot of money and gadgets and does not have super powers. Green Arrow is loosely based off robin hood and he is extremely skilled with the bow and arrow.I love the relationship that green arrow has with black canary(Dinah Lance) usually a very  romantic arrow and black canary is another couple that I think my wife and I would love to dress up as.I think that doing a green arrow movie would not be to difficult to do.Once again he is another chnaracter I would love to read more about and I am interested in getting the brightest day graphic novel about him. I like his background story how he was stranded on an island learned to use a bow and arrow with great skill to survive.Oliver Queen is also from star city.Merlyn is one of the emerald archers main villains and would be interesting to see a showdown between the two.I also feel that if they do a green arrow movie that they should explore the relationship between him and black canary.Another character that they could explore is arrow's sidekick speedy and his relationship with oliver.I believe that is everything I have to say on the emerald archer for now.

Thanagarians Hawkman and Hawkgirl

I would like to take some time to talk about a lesser known pair of characters Hawkman and Hawkgirl.They are the most romantic pair of characters in the dc univerese and have a love that span the centuries.I find their love story to be the most interesing one out there.Let me to tell as best I can their backstory Charter and Shaeira Hall both have advanced technology from their home world of Thanagaar including a pair of wings in which they constructed themselves.They are constantly being reincarnanted in new lives in which they rediscover their love. I definitely want to read more about the two characters and their rich history.Hawkman and Hawkgirl were two of the most intriguing characters in the blackest night as well as their part in brightest day.I believe that if the two received their own movie it would be like Indiana Jones with a super hero touch added to it and I would just love that. The thanagarians are characters in which I feel I also need to read more about especially in their own story.My wife and I would love to dress up as the two characters for halloween only I would need a little more muscle on me.Thats all I have to say about the thanagarians for now thanks.

Wonder Woman!!

Once again this is a character I need to learn more about, but what I do know I thouroughly enjoy.She is an amazonian princess of themyscira an island hidden from mankind.Diana Prince has the powers of the greek gods she is embodied with strength speed flight and the lasso of truth.Diana is ambassador to themyscira and man's world.A great percent of her villains are based off the greek gods and goddessess villains such as ares hades. She also has villains like circes and cheetah whom I would love to see in a live action wonder woman movie.One thing I do find very interesting is the fact that diana is not so innocent she did kill maxewll lord, because she felt that he was far too great a threat to let live.In my opinion if marvel can make thor a huge success than I do not see why dc cant do wonder woman, because after all both characters are based on godlike powers.I definitely think that they should get someone good to play diana.Well thats all I have to say about the amazon.

martian manhunter

I would like to talk about j'onn j'onzz (aka martian manhunter).I will not be able to make this as exstensive as the other ones. I love this character and wish that dc could do more with his character.He is just as powerful as superman, but in my opinion way cooler. Some of his abilities include shapeshifting, flight, super strength, telepathy and he can phase through solid objects.The martian's only weakness is a vulnerability to fire.I have a three part martian manhunter comic series which I got at a flea market it was super interesting loved it showed him as a detective during the day and he is in his martian form while he was in his apartment.In the story he battles these strange lizard guys and also meets up with Dr Midnite from the justice society.If they did his own movie it would difficult, but I would love to see it and hope that it is done correctly,maybe do a transition with him dealing with destruction of his martian people and him taking the identity of john jones a detective on earth. I wish he had his own rogues like batman,the flash or even superman.He is such a great character and the only villain I am aware of that he has is the white martians.Maybe I just need to read more on him and find out what villains he usually goes against.J'onn J'onzz is the heart of the justice league and I long for more especially anything on his back story. Thats all I have to say for now.

Fastest Man Alive!!

I love the flash, he has my favorite super power superspeed which gives him nearly infinite possibilities in the things he is able to do. Not only is he super fast he can also vibrate through solid objects create whirlwinds and he can tap into the speed force.I hope that the movie studios of hollywood get to work on the flashes own movie soon.I hope that it involves barry allen's character and his origin story. I have little interest in jay garrick's story.The flash has some of the most colorful rogues in the dc universe including captain cold trickster captain boomerang mirror master gorrilla grodd and reverse flash. My personal villain choice would have to be either gorrilla grodd or proffessor zoom(aka reverse flash).I love the Grodd he is one of my favorites I do not know why but I think a super intelligent talking gorrila with mind control is actually pretty pimp,and proffessor zoom is awesome because he is one of the few villains who can truly get the best of the flash.If I had to I would settle with captain boomerang an austrailian villain might be interesting to see.Another thing that would be cool is if in the sequel they bring in wally west.I have just began reading some of the flash stories and so far they are amazing and I am eager to read many more of the flashes stories and love learning about his history and villains. Thats all for tonight more later!!

Almost everything batman

Lets get into the batman disscussion. I am greatly anticipating The Dark Knight Rises for a couple reasons one I love batman and he is pretty much my bread and butter. Another reason I am excited about the upcoming movie is that christopher nolan is a genius and made a very good decision in choosing bane as the villain, unlike most people the joker is not my favorite villain the man who broke the bat's back bane is by far my favorite villain.I am also very confident in the way they are approaching catwomans character and hoping that for the most part her oufit is similar to jim lee's art work. I am also super siked about the new video game arkham city which will come out in the fall. I love the fact that you can play as batman,catwoman and download robin who I feel gets a bad rap because of the way his character is represented in film and media he is an important character to the batmans legacy. I am also very happy their is a vast array of batman's rogues or villains in the new game, it looks amazing. I have read so many batman stories and love them all especially any story by grant morrisson. So far my favorite batman series is the nightfall series in which batman is truly defeated for the first time by the intelligent and powerful bane. I have another thought on christopher nolans batman films I find it slightly ironic that he likes to keep the series grounded in reality, but Ras al ghul who he used in the first film is actually immortal and the current character bane is super powered by a steroid compound known as venom. I found that to be an interesting fact. Regardless I am glad nolan is redeeming bane's character and show the world what his character is really about and that no one can base their knowledge of batman or his legacy on joel schumachers crap which was a slap in the face to us comic book fans who kmow the truth about bane. I hate how in batman and robin made bane seem like an idiot made mr freeze seem witty which is false on both counts. Thats all for now.

green lantern thoughts

I recently saw the green lantern movie and really enjoyed it. I am a little dissappointed it was not more successful, but I am very happy that they are still working on a sequel. After all the only flaws I saw were minor cgi defects and the one thing that bothered me was that in the movie parallex kills abin sur and in the comics it is atrocitus.I especially loved the end scene in which sinestro wears the yellow ring. I have a lot of things in mind that I would love to see in the next film. First of all I hope that the same cast is in it like mark strong and ryan reynolds. I am hoping that they introduce new characters such as john stewart guy gardner or arisia. If they go in the direction I think that they are going in with the sinestro war then I would also like to see sinestro corps members like maash, low and definiely arkillo. I would love to see an epic fight scene with kilowog and arkillo just  like in the sinestro corps war.Another thing I would absolutely love to see is the introduction of atrocitus and the red lanterns.It would be interesting to see how they do dex starr.Thats all for now please feel free to share your opinion with me.
