Its no secret that I am a fan of comic books and movies based on said books. I read DC books and Marvel books. I love these stories and the characters , but Im pretty damn far from being up to date on any current books. Ive read comics like Hulk , Spider-Man, Batman and X-Men since I was a kid. These mags were a big part of me learning to read. Not only that, but learning to enjoy reading. I bought comics before I could even properly read them. At one point though in the late 80s I fell off reading them, but this was due to the magazines being discontinued. I kept the ones I had and still have a few of those old mags lying around somewhere. But being a fan of the source material can sometimes be a detriment. You know the saying ; “the book was better” . Its no joke, sometime that is the case. Sometimes it’s the opposite . But then sometimes a movie fails so badly that you legitimately have to ask if the filmmakers ever even read the source material .
So now that both movies have come out, and the feedback of both can be gauged , I thought I might do a little comparison piece.
With the financial failure of Warner Brothers big bet this year, Batman V Superman Yawn of Injustice , what is the studio going to do to get back on track ?
Action comedy sequel, “Assassination Classroom: Graduation,” beat ‘Batman v Superman’ and debuted atop the Japanese box office. It did this despite the fact that Batman v Superman : Yawn of Injustice opened on twice as many screens and has had a worldwide marketing campaign with about $200 million dollars behind it. Yawn of Injustice did not even take the number two spot !!!
Hello all. I attended a midnight screening of Batman V Superman : Dawn of Justice. And I have somewhat calmed myself down enough to write about it…..
A new international Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Tv Spot has been released. I showcases a lot of the same footage from the previous trailers, but there are also a few added clips which has not been seen before.
Warner Brothers is aiming to begin production for SUICIDE SQUAD 2 in 2017. The buzz for SS is pretty high, and WB must have faith in the franchise if they are setting up the sequel shoot before earning a single dollar.
As we have seen all to often as of late, the studios change these plans very frequently. And with a cast like SS has it can’t be easy to schedule all these players , and make it fit everyone’s calendar. That said, I would be surprised if the whole squad makes it out of the first film alive.
SUICIDE SQUAD hits theaters on August 5, 2016
But first things last. The premiere of Turkish Airlines : Batman V Superman is creeping ever closer, and WB is in high promotion mode. They recently released yet another tv spot for the film.
Directed by Zack Snyder , the film stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jason Momoa, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Scoot McNairy, Callan Mulvey, and Tao Okamoto.

Fly to Gotham with Turkish Airlines. If it doesn’t blow up, you can also fly to Metropolis !!
