DC Comics definitely hits its stride with Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. Never have I been more impressed with an animated adaptation of a comic book story arc than I am with this spectacular straight-to-DVD movie. At the same time, I am not without complaints in regards to it.
As the current President of DC Entertainment, Diane Nelson has the inside info that comic fans want to hear. She talked to the Hollywood Reporter about why Man of Steel worked, why Green Lantern failed, possible Wonder Woman and Sandman films, and the future of DC movies.
I've always dismissed comics taking place in alternate universes or on other Earths. The way I saw it was, if it didn't happen in the "real" world it was a waste of my time. However, DC sent me over the first issue of Earth 2 and it featured that world's version of Batman and Robin. Just like a fish, I took the dangling bait and was reeled in.
Let me start off by stating the obvious to many of my regular readers. I absolutely love DC Comics. They never fail to do anything they can to meet my petty undeserving demands as a reviewer of their monthly comics and graphic novels. I sit here right now contemplating how I can review all 46 #0 issues they sent me.
DC Comics ends another 12 issues and ushers in a second year of adventure with Justice League International Annual #1. Here's yet another monthly book I can't seem to find the time to follow on a regular basis. Every time I'm pulled into its pages I leave satisfied. What it comes down to is there are just not enough hours in a day.
The comic world is all abuzz with the iconic kiss seen 'round the world. Wonder Woman and Superman finally seal the deal with a climactic full-page smooch. The cover of Justice League Issue #12 teases of the monumental moment with Jim Lee's dramatic illustration of the two super heroes flying through the air together wrapped in the Amazonian princess's golden lasso of truth. Does the issue live up to all the excitement built around it?
I'm a huge fan of Batman and keep up with his monthly adventures in both Detective Comics and the self-titled book. Unfortunately, a limited budget keeps me from picking up every Bat-related and Justice League title released as I would like to, but I do my very best to catch up when I can. One book I recently caught up with thanks to a new trade paperback release is Justice.
Green Lantern for some odd reason is being considered a box office failure, however WB is still planning to have him return to the big screen. I guess the positive fan feedback outweighed everything else? Or perhaps WB's new ideas the the second movie are so awesome that passing it up will be a crime?
Green Lantern was expected to do better than its performing, but is far from being called a total flop. There is still hope in the franchise and WB/DC still seems dedicated to getting more superheroes into the market. WB has stated that a second movie for Green Lantern is indeed on the way.
