Happy Friday, crusaders! At least, I think it’s Friday. I’ve been hit in the head so many times during fight training that I’m no longer sure. But let’s examine the news, just in case!
The most “dear God please no” article I found this week is this one, where an interviewer gleefully suggests Jennifer Lopez throw her hat in the ring for a DC or Marvel superhero. Zatanna was bandied about as an option, as was Captain Marvel. Can we not? I mean, I’m all for a diverse cast, but there are better options out there than Jenny from the Block.
Personally, I think Gina Rodriguez would be a great Zatanna. But I digress.
The outside world is finally starting to take note of new, exciting DC shifts, like CONVERGENCE and the fact that Batgirl got a new outfit and digs. Sometimes I forget what a bubble we still live in.
The Suicide Squad movie: Tom Hardy is out, Jake Gyllenhaal might be in. White guy replaces white guy. Yawn.
Flushed with success, the CW is in talks to give The Atom his own spinoff. Is this a rule of three thing?
Superheroes already have a prominent place in pop culture. Their images can be seen anywhere. As a fan I enjoy seeing the strength of these characters in the spotlight, but because I am looking to reach a new audience, I needed to find a new light. I had to consider that comic books are a series of images accompanied by dialogue, and since it’s the images that are already so prominent, I decided to focus on the dialogue.
Awesome. I want this Wondie one as a print.
That’s my news for today. How’s your week going? Got anything to add? Leave it in the comments!
