Keith welcomes Swaraback to the podcast to dish on his recent interview with the legendary Emma Thompson and her new movie, What’s Love Got to Do With It. They also break down the latest Flash and Transformers trailers, plus the nightmare fuel that is The Little Mermaid’s “live action” animals.
The first reactions for The Flash are hitting the internet as we speak. After a successful Los Angeles screening and a wider screening at this week’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas, the hype for the movie is growing increasingly strong with every social reaction that hits the internet.
CinemaCon, the annual trade show where Hollywood unveils its most exciting upcoming releases exclusively to the world’s theater owners , is currently underway in Las Vegas. As part of Warner Bros.’ presentation today, new images from The Flash were released, as was the movie’s latest trailer!
We’re a few months out from the theatrical debut of The Flash, but the merchandise stream keeps flowing! Today, McFarlane Toys officially unveiled their line of 7-inch figures, but it was a couple of vehicles that stole the show. For the first time ever, Michael Keaton’s Batmobile and Batwing will be available for 1:12 collectors!
For the 300th(!!!) episode of Hard NOC Life, Keith and Britney are joined by The Middle Geeks host Swara to grapple with loving the Flash Super Bowl trailer and share their honest thoughts on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
With the internet still reeling from its epic Super Bowl trailer, the marketing team for this summer’s The Flash is kicking it into high gear with the release of three brand new character posters featuring the titular superhero and his World’s Finest companions, Batman and Supergirl.
Well, more like the Batwing and Batcave. Still it’s no secret that Michael Keaton’s iteration of Batman will feature prominently in The Flash, and the newly released teaser poster just highlights the collision of these two cinematic worlds.
The gang’s all here! Keith, Britney, and Dominic reunite to talk more about the HBO Max fallout from the Warner Bros. Discovery merger. Keith also reviews DC League of Super-Pets before the crew breaks down the first episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on Disney+.
Keith and Britney were going to discuss the most recent episode of Moon Knight, but Marvel just dropped the first teaser for Thor: Love and Thunder! After breaking that down, they turn back the skies to discuss Moon Knight and speculate what Discovery’s takeover of Warner Bros. means for the future of DC Films.
Dominic and Britney are joined by our very own Swarato break down episode two of Disney+’s Moon Knight and continue the debate over Kamala Khan’s power set in the latest Ms. Marvel promo. Then, newest NOC Lyra interviews Bridgerton star Simone Ashley about representing on the popular Netflix series before the crew speculates about what Ezra Miller’s predicament means for the future of The Flash in the DCEU.
Well, so much for that DC Films sizzle reel that premiered during the Super Bowl and was attached to each reel of The Batman over the weekend. After promising all the heroes we were going to see in 2022, it seems it was all a beautiful lie (sorry, Batfleck).
Keith, Dominic, and Britney welcome special guest host DJ Benhameen of the For All Nerds podcast to break down the Peacemaker finale, discuss 50 Cent’s foray into superhero movies, and reflect on the four-year anniversary of Black Panther.
With apologies to Enrique Iglesias and David Bowie, DC and Warner Bros. just dropped a one-minute teaser showcasing its slate of live action films coming only to theaters in 2022 (the DC Super-Pets were conspicuously absent from the video). While a lot of the footage is recycled from their DC FanDome presentation, there was a lot that was new too.
The first substantial glimpse of The Flash film premiered at DC FanDome today, after years of teaser images and fan speculation surrounding the much-anticipated DC Universe live-action feature. The video released today confirms that the titular super-speedster will meet up with Batman, the Batcave, the Batmobile, and we reckon, another Batman.
For the last few weeks, The Flash director Andy Muschietti has been taking to social media to reveal glimpses at the costumes to be worn by Michael Keaton, Ezra Miller, and Sasha Calle, respectively in the upcoming entry into the DCEU.
Today is the day. Zack Snyder’s Justice Leaguehas finally been released to HBO Max and people can now see the director’s four-hour magnum opus as he bids adieu to the DC Universe. And while a lot has been made about the restored scenes and characters that were left on the cutting room floor of the theatrical edition, I was most struck by the differences between shots that appear in both versions. Below you will find side-by-side comparisons of several of these scenes.
Long time readers of this site will know that I have a a complicated history with Zack Snyder’s take on DC’s most iconic characters. While my opinion on his first foray, Man of Steel1, has waxed and waned over the years, I’ve never been able to see Batman v Superman as anything more than a convoluted mess of bombast and pretension feigning to be more profound than it actually was (Batman’s fight in the warehouse was cool, I guess). Moreover, the ferocity of the online debate about these films — both the religiosity of Snyder’s fans and the unnecessary cruelty of his detractors — turned me off to the whole enterprise. Talking about these movies on the internet was not worth the hassle or the harassment (says the guy who actively engaged in online arguments defending The Last Jedi for at least three years).
I am a Marvel fanboy. I always have been. DC has been kind to my youth, don’t get me wrong, but as the last several years have attested, it’s been difficult holding our collective breath for a superhero movie from DC that didn’t get immense flack. I won’t lie to you — I’ve goaded friends, some more than others, for rallying behind something like #TheSnyderCut back in 2017.
Fast forward a handful of years and a whole lot of headlines to Saturday’s Snyder Cut panel at DC FanDome and… I’m sold.
