At this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, DC Comics’ Jim Lee announced that there are no plans for Zack Snyder to return to the DC franchise movies or for the “SnyderVerse” Justice League to continue.  This was followed up with two big trailers that open up the DC Comics universe to return to the fun of the comics.  Zachary Levi’s spin on the original Captain Marvel opened the gates for a renaissance for DC at the movies with his new Shazam in 2019, back again this year in the sequel, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, and Dwayne Johnson is taking DC to the next level in his big fall release Black Adam.

And another show with a dragon!  Seems like you can’t find a trailer this summer without one.  Thanks, Shazam!

Neither of these movies could look better, and these trailers have a lot of promise.  Can Shazam and Black Adam save the DCU?  Check out the trailers for Black Adam and Shazam! Fury of the Gods: Continue reading

It’s no revelation that DC Comics on the big screen hasn’t fared as well as the Marvel adaptations.  The best of its efforts will always be a benchmark to shoot for–that’s John Wesley Shipp’s take on the Flash–from the 1990 TV series and his recent cameo appearances in TV’s Arrowverse–but other actors have formed iconic attempts to match the superheroes of DC Comics over 80 years, including George Reeves and Christopher Reeve as Superman.  Zachary Levi’s spin on the original Captain Marvel opened the gates for a renaissance for DC at the movies with his new Shazam in 2019, and Dwayne Johnson may be taking DC to the next level in its big fall release Black Adam.

Pierce Brosnan returns to theaters in his first major role since The Foreigner (reviewed here) as Dr. Fate opposite Johnson in the title role.  If you like nostalgia, JoAnna Cameron’s Secrets of Isis was a fun TV series in the 1970s, so it will be fun to see a new take on the character, this time played by Fairly Legal, Life, and Psych actress Sarah Shahi.  And after all the iffy efforts at a Justice League, at last we will get to see Aldis Hodge (Leverage, Black Mirror, Star Trek: Short Treks) deliver Carter Hall aka Hawkman to the big screen–his costume in this first trailer looks great.

Check out this promising trailer for Black Adam:

Last year Dynamite brought Charlie’s Angels back from the 1980s for some new adventures, joining other classic TV series comic adaptations including Batman ’66, Wonder Woman ’77, The Six Million Dollar Man, and The Bionic Woman Dynamite has combined a few classic TV shows already, including a story with Wonder Woman ’77 and The Bionic Woman taking down some fembots This year the publisher is putting together two more dream team-ups with The Bionic Woman joining Charlie’s Angels on a mission in Charlie’s Angels/The Bionic Woman.  When Bosley hands Kelly Garrett, Kris Munroe, and Julie Rogers their next assignment from Charlie, they encounter one of our favorite classic borg characters, the bionic-powered Jaime Sommers.  Following the events of the television series into the 1980s, we catch up with a privatized Office of Scientific Investigation, and it’s up to these four women to make sure the OSI technology doesn’t get into the wrong hands for military applications.

It’s a great move using the latter trio from Charlie’s Angels for the new series.  Artist Cat Skaggs′ rendering of Tanya Roberts as Julie on her cover variant to Issue #1 is perfect, and she also provides a great portrait of Lindsay Wagner as Jaime for the cover of Issue #2.  Other covers were drawn by Ron Lesser and Jim Mahfood, whose Issue #2 features a gorgeous, stylized, throwback design.

   

Cameron DeOrdio (Josie and the Pussycats) steps in to write this series, and in the first issue she lays the groundwork for a compelling spy thriller.  Artist Soo Lee (Strange Attractors) brings in her unique style to give the series an authentic early 1980s vibe.  Her artwork has elements of manga and anime blended with Matt Kindt, but best of all the book looks as if it could have been drawn in 1982.  Color work is by Addison Duke, with letters by Crank!

Here are some preview images and covers for the first two issues, courtesy of Dynamite:
