Whats the deal with "The Crow"…

15-08-2016 Fantastic Forum Blog moey_ramone - avatar moey_ramone

Late last week news broke out of "Aquaman" star Jason Momoa playing the Crow in the reboot. Many people had apprehensions, your humble narrator being one of them. My co-host on Fantastic Jorum (Wednesday nights 6:30 pm pacific time on allgames.com) JOE said Momoa wasn't fit to play Eric Draven. i dont think Eric Draven needs to be in the reboot. The nature of the crow as a concept is that it can be anyone! So they can make a totally new movie. They can tell a totally new story that could add to the mythos, but i digress this...

Exclusive! Ninja Turtles 2 Flop Puts Par…

The dismal performance of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows has Paramount rethinking the future of the franchise. A source from inside the studio has reported just how drastic the reaction is. The studio is reportedly going to fire the writing team currently working on the third movie in favor of a full on reboot. A reboot means all new director and all new design for the turtles. There is still a debate among the higher ups on whether to stay live action or go back to animated. There’s a debate over the profitability of big name actors and...

DEADPOOL V GAMBIT #1 Pits Merc Against M…

27-05-2016 Fantastic Forum Blog moey_ramone - avatar moey_ramone

Gambit – one of the smoothest, best looking operators in the world. Deadpool – one of the most annoying, ugliest dirtbags around. Naturally these two have beef. Be there this June when tensions reach their boiling points in DEADPOOL V GAMBIT #1 – a new limited series from writers Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (Thunderbolts) and artist Danilo Beyruth (Gwenpool)! Did you know that the “V” stands for “Vs.”? Crazy, right? Know what’s crazier? These two have a secret history together – working to pull con jobs across the Marvel Universe. That’s right, and now the Regeneratin’ Degenerate and the Ragin’ Cajun are...

CW Superhero 4 Way!

23-05-2016 Fantastic Forum Blog Oscar - avatar Oscar

Earlier we reported that Supergirl was moving to DCs new channel known as CW. It was then that we predicted a crisis on infinite CW shows that would merge her into the current CW universe. Well now it's been officially confirmed. The network is planning an epic four-way crossover with Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. If they could figure out a way to toss Constantine into the mix the heads of nerds all around the world would LITERALLY explode from the force of their nerdgasm. Sounds like it should be fun. I, for one, am looking forward to...

Hey guys there's a new DC logo!!!

17-05-2016 Fantastic Forum Blog moey_ramone - avatar moey_ramone

  The eponymous comics company has once again changed its logo we've seen what they've done in the past and now they opted to go with a more simple and stream lined look. The Pentagram (not the band) designed logo will debut on May 25th on the cover of DC Rebirth #1. It is your lowly narrator's opinion that this new logo is a step in the right direction compared to the god-awful piece of $#!+ they've had for the last couple of years. This new logo evokes a modern take on the "traditional" DC logo. Hopefully it speaks to what...

Gotham City Sirens is on the way!

16-05-2016 Fantastic Forum Blog OZ - avatar OZ

It’s being widely reported that there’s a movie in the works centered around Harley Quinn, played by Margot Robbie, along with other female DC heroes and villains. All the news sources out there have been mistaken referring this as a Birds of Prey movie. Those of us who actually read comics know that it is more likely to be a Gotham City Sirens movie. The biggest clue is that the idea seems to have come about from Margot Robbie falling in love with the Harley Quinn books she read to prepare for the role. Since Harley has never been a...
