When it comes to american comics, there are two big publishers: DC Entertainment and Marvel Comic, more commonly reffered as “The Big Two”. Continue reading Opinion: The Comics Pendulum

The trailer in question (that i am going to post after the cut) introduces Dick Grayson and show us him meeting Batman for the first time and becoming his sidekick
Confession time: I greatly dislike DC’s Nu52. I honestly believe that, overall, it has showcased a lot of what is wrong with the comic industry and that the titles that were good, were good despite of it, not because of it.
There are also 2 changes DC did that i will flat out call godawful and offensive and am willing to argue it with anyone, because i believe they are in the wrong for defending these two: The Kents being dead in Superman’s backstory and EVERYTHING related to Wonder Woman in the Nu52.
Warner Brother’s DCEU seems to be in an interesting moment right now with the polarizing Batman V Superman dividing the fanbase even more, the Suicide Squad movie being around the corner, Geoff Johns reportedly joining the creative process of this cinematic universe and a ton of rumors about possible movies.
The more recent of this developments has been the reveal that the Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot and to be set in World War I has a reported budget of $100 millions. To put it in perspective, Captain America: First Avenger had a budget of $140 millions. Likewise, Man of Steel had a budget of $225 millions, Batman v. Superman $250 millions and there are rumors that Suicide Squad is going to likewise be $250 millions.
I don’t think it is particularly hard to see a clear difference in the amount of funding those three movies got in comparison to Wonder Woman who, I shall remind everyone, is going to be the first high-profile Superhero movie starring a female lead. So, naturally, there are people who are concerned at Warner Brothers seeming lack of faith in this movie and how miniscule this budget is compared to the rest of the DCEU. Some feel Warner Brothers should have given the movie the $200 millions mark that is becoming common in Superhero movies (and other blockbusters, for that matter)

My name is Barry Allen and I am the fastest man alive. To the outside world, I’m an ordinary forensic scientist. But secretly with the help of my friends at Star Labs, I use my speed to fight crime and find other metahumans like me. I hunted down the man who killed my mother, but in doing so I opened up our world to new threats. And I am the only one fast enough to stop them. I am The Flash.
Back in 2011, DC’s New52 had just started and, among their launching titles, there was the critically acclaimed title Batwoman. This was a huge deal because it was a book with an openly lesbian character as the lead. The book spent 17 issues building upon the relationship between Kate Kane and Maggie Sawyer to the point that, at the very end of the book’s first over-arching storyline, Kate and Maggie became engaged to the acclaim of the fans.
In 2013 and months after the marriage had been green lighted, all of the sudden DC stepped back, the wedding was vetoed by editorial mandate and the creative team that had created one of the most acclaimed books in the entire New52 quit the project entirely out of anger. What had been a huge step forward for DC had, from day to night, become an example of the lack of commitment from publishers in having diversity in their books. And to make matters worse, DC tried to justify itself saying none of their heroes in the New52 were married with the exception of Animal Man, which was an issue in and of itself.
