Movies We’re Thankful For!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 23rd, 2017

Tis the season to be thankful for many things. Family, friends, food, jobs, and Bruce Campbell. It’s Thanksgiving time and we here at Boomstick Comics just love movies. We love everything about them. Even the bad ones. While you’re eating those delicious bites of Turkey, watching ‘Charlie Brown Thanksgiving‘ or the Dallas Cowboys Game, we want to share with you some movies that we are thankful for. These movies have touched us in some way and have helped shaped our creative lives. Maybe this list will inspire you to make your own list and share it with us. These are the movies we are thankful for and dearly love.

DC Announces its next movie will be Shazam!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 20th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The cat is out of the bag. The next big movie in the DC Cinematic Universe will be Shazam!, which is a story about a boy who transforms into the mightiest mortal on Earth. Filming should begin at the start of 2018 and will release the following year. They even have a director now, which is David F. Sandberg – a horror filmmaker. Sandberg made Lights Out and the upcoming Annabelle: Creation, according to THR. That’s pretty much it. Now he’s getting a big comic book franchise. It’s exciting for sure and judging by Lights Out, I’m sure he’s more than capable.

Powers Boothe

June 1, 1948 – Mar 14, 2017

When great entertainers pass away, it’s difficult to come up with the right way to mourn a life that still lives on for us in so many ways. The one way we can not just respect the life, but continue to enjoy the life they lived is with re-watching their movies that cement their presence in our lives.

Batman-Ben-Affleck-970x545

Is Deathstroke coming to the film world of the DC Universe? Maybe so after Ben Affleck shared a solo video with no comment or explanation this morning on Twitter. We don’t know precisely what it means, but it looks to be a screen test as we can see the monitor Batfleck is recording it from.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Love them, hate them or tolerate them, superhero movies are a staple in the grand pantheon of entertainment. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of slow-down for the summer blockbuster favorites, if anything there are more and more in the woodwork just waiting for their moment in the sun. Marvel took a wide lead over their DC counterpart in both quality and quantity of films produced, but DC is looking to make a comeback and that’s starting with this summer’s ‘Superman V Batman: Dawn of Justice‘. From there, we have stand-alone movies that feature our favorite comic book supes and among those in the works is ‘Justice League: Part One‘ and ‘Aquaman‘.

If you were watching the CW last night, you would have caught that amazing trailer for the upcoming movie  ‘Suicide Squad‘, which is like ‘The Justice League‘, but full of bad guys. The story behind it is that all of the heroes are busy doing something and another big evil entity comes along and the government calls on the bad guys with powers to stop total chaos. It’s a fantastic trailer for sure. The film comes out August 8th.

Seth Grahame-Smith Directing DC’s ‘The Flash’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 5th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

480x277_seth_grahamesmith

Seth Grahame-Smith  is putting some distance between himself and the novels that rocketed him to stardom (‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘ and ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies‘) by turning his eye to directing. The project in question isn’t an adaptation to one of his novels, but to ‘The Flash‘.

The official plan to release the ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ trailer this coming Monday, but some dude with a camera phone spoiled those plans and put their shaky, grainy version with Portuguese subtitles out into the interwebs.  Zack Snyder reacted by giving the fans what we want, a peek at the trailer.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

Kryptonians

There’s a new comic book series on the horizon, and it doesn’t really even focus on one of our most loved heroes, but an ancestor of his. Where ‘Gotham‘ tells the stories of a crime-riddled city and it’s citizens, ‘Krypton‘ will focus on the planet and it’s inhabitants before Superman’s birth.

Supergirl Added To Stable Of TV Supes!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Supergirl_Vol_6_14

 

If you think about superhero television shows, or if you’re like me, you think of the dreck that was ‘Lois and Clark‘, ‘Mutant X‘, or ‘The Tick‘?  If it’s not one of those shows, then it’s probably something equally abysmal. With the resurgence of super-powered peeps making such an excellent showing at the box office – because why would they be creating so frakking many of them if they weren’t making some serious coin? So it stands to reason that the small screen is looking for new hit projects in the same vein.

‘Aquaman’ Film Gains Two New Writers!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 13th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Aquaman17_(1996)

 

Recently Announced ‘Aquaman‘ movie gains two separate scripts.  Will Beall (‘Gangster Squad‘) and Kurt Johnstad (‘300: Rise of an Empire‘) have signed on two pen completely individual scripts. This is a truly ingenious way to achieve the same ends – Having a successful film.

With the lack of popularity for Aquaman among comic book nerds who can find reasons to love the most ridiculous of characters, making a film on the superhero would seem like an uphill battle the second the idea came to them. So how do you make an absolutely awesome film on Aquaman, the butt of the joke for even the most ardent of comic book afficionados? You realize that the first attempt is not going to live up to the dream, immediately. How do you move forward once you know that? You take the development process and dual track everything. The thought process being that if the two writers work on scripts on their own, the studio can then take the best points from each film and put them together in one super-film.

Warner Bros. Is Building A ‘Lego Movie’ Sequel!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 24th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

The Lego Movie

After the ‘Lego Movie‘ proved to be such a massive blockbuster hit world-wide, Warner Brothers is not letting any of the momentum die down before announcing a sequel. While the details about the coming film are sketchy at best, one thing we know for sure is the release date has been staked out for May 26, 2017, with it being the beginning of the long Memorial Day weekend, we can assume it will be the tentpole for their summer film releases. At this point, this is the only film to claim the release date. So far, the only real thing that has been confirmed is the release date and that it will be the Lego universe. The rumor mill is spinning with whether or not it will be a proper sequel to the film in theaters now or if it will be a Lego Ninjago spinoff.

Warner Bros. and DC Comics have teamed up yet again. This time it’s for a television show based on the comic book ‘Constantine‘. If you remember, a few years ago, Keanu Reeves starred as John Constantine, based on the same book. This particular series will be headed to NBC with David S. Goyer and Daniel Cerone serving as writer and producer.

Film Review: ‘Man of Steel’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

man-of-steel-theme

Did we need another Superman origin story to grace our theaters just seven years after Bryan Singer’s attempt at ‘Superman Returns‘? While that particular film wasn’t so much a reboot as it was a sequel to the original ‘Superman 2‘, and its failure in its characters and story, maybe it was time to forget that ‘Superman Returns‘ existed and start from scratch. And with the super success of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and Marvel’s Avenger’s films, DC and Warner Bros. might want to take the same road to a Justice League film starting with ‘Man of Steel‘.

Hi, Bryan Here….

I think Guillermo Del Toro might just be the coolest guy on the planet, next to Tom Waits.  His new epic film ‘Pacific Rim’ is testing through the roof, we hear and Warner Bros. is so happy about it, they want Guillermo to make all their films.  Warner offered Guillermo to direct a feature adaptation of the tv series ‘V’ and a sequel to ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.  But we hear that Guillermo wants to do his own version of a film like ‘The Avengers’ or ‘The Justice League’.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The CW is revving up its new series ‘Arrow’ with Stephen Amell set to star.  I’m of course referring to comic book character ‘The Green Arrow’.  The costume looks great.  It was designed by Colleen Atwood who is an oscar winning costume designer and done just about every Tim Burton film.  The project, written by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg, is based on the DC character and centers on former billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Amell) who, after being marooned for five years on a remote island, returns with a mysterious agenda and a lethal set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime.
