What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than by offering a first look at the most toxic couple in all of comics? Well, that’s exactly what Todd Phillips did on Instagram by revealing our first look at Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn from next year’s highly anticipated sequel, Joker: Folie à Deux.
This weekend, we welcome the Year of the Rabbit as half the globe celebrates Lunar New Year. Fittingly, Bugs Bunny and friends are ready for the spotlight with a stacked slate featuring a Lunar New Year celebration short on Cartoonito, new episodes of Bugs Bunny Builders and HBO Max’s Looney Tunes Cartoons, plus the launch of Tiny Toons Looniversity later this year.
It’s been a controversial week for WB and DC. With everything going on with Batgirl, and something of a lackluster showing at Comic-Con, the studio needed to drop some big news. And admittedly news for the sequel to the $1B grossing Joker is big.
Next week, Warner Bros. Animation is bringing their iconic Looney Tunes characters to a preschool audience with Cartoonito’s Bugs Bunny Builders. We were fortunate enough to speak with the talented voices behind the iconic Bunnys — Bugs and Lola — as they discuss their new show.
Last week, director Todd Phillips took to Instagram to reveal work has begun on the follow-up to his 2019 Academy Award-winning film, Joker. Without caption, the director simply posted the cover of the screenplay — intriguingly subtitled “Folie à Deux” — and a photo of Joaquin Phoenix reading the script.
A new trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, the highly-anticipated video game from Rocksteady Studios, premiered at DC FanDome today. Fandome is a one-day online event showcasing a barrage of upcoming releases from DC Comics and Warner Bros. The makers of the Arkham Asylum games revealed the title at 2020’s inaugural FanDome, and since then details have been scanty. Here’s the new look at Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, which features welcome appearances from Green Lantern, Flash, and the Batmobile!
Keith rejoins Britney and Dominicto share final thoughts on The Suicide Squad, revisit Cathy Yan’s contributions to the DC canon, break down the whole Shang-Chi experiment “controversy,” and review the first episode of Disney+’s What If.
I don’t typically like to compare movies. Sure, most films of recent are either a reboot, sequel or adaptation. At the very least, they take reference from kind of source material. But some movies are more comparable than others, like Suicide Squad (2016) and The Suicide Squad (2021). However, aside from confusingly similar titles, a couple of returning players, and a similar world-saving plot, these two movies have almost nothing in common.
In late 2019, which seems a whole world ago, The Nerds Of Color were invited to Atlanta, GA to visit the set of The Suicide Squad, which premieres on HBO Max and in theaters this Friday, August 6. Early reviews of the sequel/not-a-sequel are already out, and here’s a few more things we learned from the set visit about the “shitty supervillain” war caper film, based on the DC Comics.
We’re inching closer to the release of James Gunn’s high octane film, The Suicide Squad! And in a recent interview, Gunn spoke with Entertainment Weekly about what we can expect about the film, and revealed a new image through the publication, but also revealed a few tidbits of information from recent tweets including:
The strength of a hero is not just defined by their powers. Who they are, outside of those uncomfortable looking tights, is just as important. A hero with a strong sense of character has the ability to do what’s right, and turn their long and difficult journey into a message of hope for everyone who sees them. With that being the case, Nicole Maines is just as much a superhero offscreen as she is on.
Dominic and Keith are back to continue talking about HBO Max’s Snyder Cut (now that Dom has finished it) and the just released Suicide Squad sequel trailer. They also break down the latest episode of Disney+’s The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, as well as Marvel’s decision to split from Diamond and San Diego Comic-Con’s in-person return. What’s nerd poppin’: Amazon’s Invincible animated series and Chloe Zhao’s Oscar-nominated film, Nomadland. Finally, the NOC’s newest contributor, Sophia Soto, speaks to Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller, the executive producers of The CW’s Supergirl, about the show’s final season.
James Gunn is back baby! And this time, he’s bringing us a new Squad! That’s right! The Guardians of the Galaxy director is aiming to unify all of comic book fandom by introducing us to his unique vision of The Suicide Squad! And let me tell you, this trailer has got me feeling all sorts of tingly excitement inside!
Upon its announcement the DC FanDome experience was going to showcase four separate rooms to explore and a full schedule of DC fan experiences that users could choose from to create a customized itinerary. However, as you can see from the incredible Hall of Heroes event itself two weeks ago, there was justtoomuchawesometocontainto oneday.
So on September 12, for 24 hours, get ready to return to the FanDome, to explore the multiverse!
Oh man, the anticipation is killing me! Today during DC FanDome, James Gunn and the full cast of The Suicide Squad, including Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Alice Braga, John Cena, Viola Davis, and more took to the internet to share some awesome announcements and fun for fans across the world, who have been waiting on pins and needles for the eagerly awaited follow-up. And my god. I think they may have just won the whole DC FanDome experience!
Way back in June, the first details about the DC FanDome, DC’s fan-driven virtual convention, began to emerge. In said article, I said stay tuned to The Nerds of Color for more news on DC FanDome. And well, loyal readers, I aim to keep that promise, and do the opposite of what my dad did that time he promised to take us to Disneyland but didn’t!
It’s been a long, long quarantine folks. Let’s be honest, under normal circumstances, we’d all be waist deep in Con season — the most wonderful time of the year; starting with Wondercon, then Paleyfest, E3, Anime Expo, and glorious, glorious SDCC. But alas, 2020 has been something of a cruel master. And while truthfully these are a.) first-world problems, and b.) necessary sacrifices to maintain health and safety, yours truly still longs for the ability to take solace and comfort in the simple joys of abandoning life’s problems, and uniting as one ginormous tribe of nerds, hugging and crying over the excitement generated from the world debut of the most anticipated trailers of the year in Hall H. I miss those days, and if you’re anything like me, I’m sure you all do too.
It’s no secret that we’re hugefansofBirdsofPreyhereatThe Nerds of Color. Even though the film has been on demand digitally since the pandemic hit, Cathy Yan’s girl-gang opus is finally available to fans of physical media with its release on blu-ray and DVD. To celebrate, we’re giving away a digital copy* of the movie to one lucky follower on twitter!
