Has Maisie Williams Been Accepted at Xaviers?

Rumor has it that Maisie Williams will be joining fellow Game of Thrones alum, Sophie Turner, at Xavier’s School for Gifted youngsters.  She has supposedly joined the cast of New Mutants.  There is absolutely no solid evidence for this as of yet.  But it sure is fun to believe.  More on this later.

Hell Hath No Funny….

Everybody has that one friend who thinks they’re funny.  Wants desperately to be funny.  Tries constantly to be funny.  And they just aren’t.  Almost ever.  As in almost never.  You love them but you want to smack them half the time.  Sure, they land a good one-liner every now and again but by the time they do you’re so exhausted and shell-shocked you just wish they would shut the fuck up and talk about their colonoscopy or their dead pet or any other fucking thing.  That’s how I feel about…

This Ought to be Funny.

If news reports are true, then Warner Brother’s looks to be in full on panic mode about the future of DC’s Cinematic Universe (which I see as a separate entity from the DCEU, since the TV shows do not relate to the movies).   Sources close to Suicide Squad are reporting that the David Ayer helmed villain extravaganza is being sent back for major reshoots.  And by major, they’re talking in the 10s of millions of dollars.  All to add humor to the film and bring it more in line with the…

Red Wolf is out of time…literally.

This morning I’m canceling my subscription to Red Wolf.  I didn’t want to.  I really wanted to like this title.  And honestly, there isn’t really anything wrong with it.  It’s just not…uh…You know. This isn’t easy for me.  The loss is real.  Mr. Wolf and I go way back.  One of the books my mother bought me when I was still in knee pants was Red Wolf.  Back then he was a cavalry scout named Johnny Wakely.  Johnny was an orphan Cheyenne, adopted by a white couple and trying to…

Here We Go Again.

So, now DC is going to reboot…again?  This should be interesting.  It should be but it probably won’t.  Geoff Johns is talking about how something classic has been lost.  Well, he should know,  he’s the addlebrained git that lost it.  He piloted DC’s creative ship onto the giant shitberg floating in the Sea of Meh.  Since then sales have plummeted and long time fans have done everything short of rally in the streets with torches and pitchforks. Obviously, since Johns is the fuckwit that masterminded this epic disaster, it only…

Spoiler: Zack Snyder is the Devil

“If man won’t kill God, the Devil will do it!” Lex Luthor, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice   At this point writing bad reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice seems a lot like beating a dead horse.  Actually, it’s like beating a dead horse with another slightly larger dead horse.  One that is stuffed full of chloroform soaked rags and gravel.  Face it, the film is a flaming train wreck.  And that particular train was carrying a cargo of rusty old buttholes through the swamps of New…
