The last time we saw him, he was recovering in a hospital bed after being shot by a smaller bullet by Bloodsport. And now he has his own HBO Max series! That’s right! Christopher Smith, aka Peacemaker, is back in the brand new series, Peacemaker!Continue reading “DC FanDome: Trailer and Release Date for ‘Peacemaker’ Revealed”
For those out there, like myself, who can’t get enough of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, any semblance or scrap of a sequel is, frankly, something to foam at the mouth for. And though Peacemaker proved to be the sequel’s true villain, there’s something about John Cena’s oblivious earnestness and hilarious charisma that does make me curious to see where the upcoming Peacemaker series is going to go. We know after the events of the film, that ARGUS desk-jockeys John Economos (Steve Agee) and Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) were sent to take back a very-much-alive Christopher Smith. But where things go from there remains a real mystery.Continue reading “New ‘Peacemaker’ Clip Shows Up in Full Cosplay Mode”

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.Continue reading “In Retrospect: ‘Birds of Prey’ and the Un-Fantabulous Omission of One Cathy Yan”
The Suicide Squad is my favorite movie of the year so far. James Gunn’s tribute to the pulpy demented works of John Ostrander’s DC run in the ’80s is bloody, bold, and brilliantly surreal. And none of it would be possible if it wasn’t for a stolen Style Watch!Continue reading “Tyla Talks Task Force X: An Interview with Storm Reid of ‘The Suicide Squad’”

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.

You’ll have to forgive me for geeking out just a bit here. But I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this insane movie twice now, and I still want more.

And I think comic book movies will be better for it!Continue reading “NOC Review: ‘The Suicide Squad’ is Pure Comic Book Punk Rock”

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!
For the past few weeks we’ve been hard at work covering the hotly anticipated DC Fandome, and today we got some new developments! Given how jam-packed with amazing content the event was going to be, the good folks at DC and Warner have decided to split the event into two days!
DC FanDome is almost here! We’re just eight days away from the most anticipated virtual con event of the quarantine year, and to prepare all the good rabid fanboys and fangirls who have waited patiently on pins and needles with anticipation, DC has revealed its preliminary schedule for fans to go in and create their itineraries for the full 24-hour event.
Fans can go here to view and create their custom schedules.
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.Continue reading “Get Ready for the DC FanDome!”
