This is the second DC Universe movie in a row I am excited about (at least I don’t think there has been another since Wonder Woman), I have been looking forward to Justice League for over a year.
The DC Comics shows that the CW Network runs are favorites of mine, and they return with new episodes in October. The Flash kicks off its new season on Tuesday, October 4th, followed by Arrow hot on its heels on Wednesday the 5th. Also on Wednesday the 5th they roll out the new sci-fi show Frequency, which is a spin off from the movie rather than based n a DC Comic, but the trailer on that one looks really good. Supergirl joins the CW lineup with the season 2 premier on Monday, October 10th, and the trailer includes a quick peek of the Flash chatting with her about the other DC characters on that channel. It could have started on CW rather than CBS, because two of the three developers created the Arrow and Flash TV series, and I am looking forward to whatever crossover stories they come up with. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has its season premier on Thursday, October 13th, and it gets followed be the season premier of another non-DC favorite, Supernatural. You can see the various trailers at their web sites, linked here; thanks to THR for the heads up on this one.
2 films worth checking out this time, beginning with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the long awaited DC entry into the Group Superhero movie field. Identicals, originally titled Brand New You, is a highly unconventional romantic thriller that will have you guessing throughout who is actually who. It takes place in a near-future world where a select few can get a life-upgrade, taking over the life of someone who has a better job, a better spouse, and a better place in the world. When one of those being replaced refuses to die as intended, he must fight to get his own back.
A UK site all about TV and Movies known as Flicks And The City was at Comic Con the other week, and apparently got permission to record and post a number of the panels there. The one I am posting here has all 5 of the DC Comics TV panels, for the shows Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Gotham, and Supergirl. This isn’t the only panel they have posted, and they have a lot of other content including reviews and interviews and trailers of various types. Check out their web site and their You Tube Channel for many more videos worth watching.
I love all the great new stuff Comic Con brings us each year…
