Fuck Batman

 

Yesterday fans got a look at the display outfits for Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, and my girl Raven. Most wanted to shit on them and call Starfire a street walker🙄 Today the trailer came out and I think it’s mostly positive.Some were like”it looks cheap”. Yes, it’s low budget. What do you expect? I’ve seen worse effects from bigger budgets.

Does Robin kill? Honestly not sure and didn’t think about it while watching. He stepped over someone and heard a crack so maybe he does. Forgive me, but I’m not sure if no kill if a code of Dick’s that he takes as serious as Batman. Speaking of Bats. “Fuck Batman” is the line everyone is taking away. Good line as it shows me the two had a major falling out. I seen some complain about this saying it is just to be edgy or that it’s out of character? Worked for me and told me where Dick and Bruce are in their relationship.

The trailer focused on Robin and Raven to my surprise. Not sure if the whole season is or what but I’m down for it. Seeing Raven in live action is amazing.

I think Hawk and/or Dove where in the trailer. Lots of blood and violence. Starfire and Beast Boy were shown briefly. I don’t think they look bad. Don’t have much to go on. I’m being optimistic. Others are sticking with the negative and name calling.

DC Universe is only $7.99 a month whch isn’t bad. $74.99 for a year which is tempting. If you preorder for the year, you get 3 free months. Cool deals, if in America I’d say look into it. I think it sounds like a good service. Outside of the original shows, you get all their TV shows (not CW ones), cartoons, movies, exclusive collectables, comics, and some fan connect thingy. I know i will be getting it. Not sure if I’ll be buying a Roku or Fire TV to watch it on the tv yet.

Final thoughts… I think there’s more upside than down in Titans. It could suck. It could be damn fine TV. I don’t even know who the villain is. Weird. Raven looks amazing tho!

So what did you think? I am curious to hear. Til next time, later days!

Tossing Around Ideas

Thinking of a new character named Edward Lionheart. He is a serial killer who targets young blonde college women.

His father died before he was born. During a store robbery, the gunman was going to murder the clerk(young blonde college age) and his father tried to stop the gunman but was shot.

Mother was a prostitute who treated Edward as a burden.

Ed grows into a handsome man which he uses to his advantage when targeting women.

As a kid he is picked up by an older man who rapes him. Later on in high school, he’s sexually assaulted by a male teacher. These could be part of his reasons. Targeting women who looks like the girl his father died for. Taking their life because they took his father’s. Men make him feel powerless. This vulnerability angers Ed taking it out on the women. Raping them to feel the power that the men who raped him felt.

The story I am thinking of leads him to target Amelia (Wonder Vixen)

Any thoughts, ideas, or opinions would be great! Please comment them or if you’re on twitter, tweet me or DM me.

The Price is Deadly

My attempt at writing a story from 3rd person. Not finished but wanted to share what I have so far. It’s back story type stuff.

 

 

Leonard Price was the CEO of a pharmaceutical multinational corporation, Price Pharmaceuticals, based in New Boston. He was born into his wealth and went into the family business when he turn 18. He was a movie buff and one actress caught his eye. So much he had to meet her.

Edith Wray was a legendary scream queen. Staring in numerous horror films such as Sins of the Mother and Wall of Lies. She also produced the cult classic: Suicide Trees.

Edith was filming Phage when she met Leonard Price. The two hit off immediately and were engaged 6 months later. 2 years later they had twins, Victor and Victoria.

They seem to be a happy family. Victor and Victoria loved to play hide and seek. It was their favorite game. During their 9th birthday they were running around the house, playing games. Edith was reading over a script when she heard a thud. It was quiet before she heard a scream. She rushed out of her steady to find the nanny crying over the lifeless body of Victor. It appears he fell down the stairs and broke his neck. Edith panticed as she searched for Victoria. After a few moments she found her hiding in a closet upstairs.

Things were never the same after that night. Edith started transitioning into producing while Leonard started spending more time at home. Edith and Leonard were more protective of Victoria from then on. Victoria kept to herself a lot. She was brilliant. Graduating with honors. While her father wanted her to go into the family business, her mother encouraged her to follow her own passions.

Victoria took her mother’s advice and enrolled at Grand Lakes University. Studying Physics and Biotechnology. Earning a doctorate and Bachelor degrees.

After college, Victoria skipped going home and took a trip to Europe. While seeing the sights and culture was her main focus, she also made some contacts in science and politics. Victoria was interested in either starting her own scientific company or perhaps buying one. Her father had no interest in expanding the family business. Having friends in power could prove to be beneficial when starting a business venture.

After her extensive trip, she was finally ready to head home. The family reunion was a pleasant one. Victoria had miss her mother and was eager to talk business with her father.

Leonard had no interest in his daughter’s grand plans. Price Pharmaceuticals was doing great and he seen no need to expand into other markets. Investing into his daughter’s science company would be a fruitless pursuit. He encourage her to join his company where she’d be set for life.

Victoria was visablly upset and would not take no for an answer. After unpacking she became emailing and calling her contacts. Forming a plan to convince her father that her ideas aren’t fruitless. Unfortunately she never had the chance.

Edith was set to receive an Lifetime Achievement award from New Mass Horror. While Leonard and Victoria weren’t seeing eye to eye, they were able to put it aside for one night. Edith was in tears as she gave her speech. For the first time publicly she spoke about Victor’s death and how it effected her career.

After the ceremony the three attended an after party. A number of producers, writers, and directors persuade Victoria in hopes she might follow in her mother’s footsteps. Victoria was flatter but had her mind set elsewhere. She was ready to leave but her parents were still mingling so she called for a cab and headed home.

Victoria woke up to the doorbell ringing. She walked down stairs haft and answered the door. To her surprise it was the police. They informed her parents were hit by a drunk driver as they left the after party. The drunk driver survived but her parents were not so luck. Victoria broke down crying. She couldn’t believe that they were gone. She was all alone now.

Later that night at Sapphire Lake General, Danny Winfrey was waking up in his hospital bed. As he got his barons he noticed a shadowy figure. Danny froze in fear. He spoke to the figure as if he knew them. “Look, I did what you asked. They believe it was an accident. It’s not my fault I didn’t die. I…”

The shadowy figure put it’s black gloved hand over his lips as it stuck him with a needle in her hip. Danny started feeling a pain in chest and the figure left as he drew his final breath. His body was found the next morning and it was declared he died of an heart attack.

Over the next few months Victoria had to adjust to her new role as CEO of Price Pharmaceuticals. She was a natural leader and able to win over her fellow executives quickly. In time she was able to go forward with expanding the company. Using her European contacts, she was able to go international within a year.

Rambling…

Yesterday I read reports that WB is making a Joker origins movie that’s separate from DCEC and be the first under a new banner of stand alone films. This news didn’t set well with me no matter how talented the people doing it are.

I don’t want or need an origin of The Joker. He doesn’t have an official origin now in the comics. Some people are OK with an Joker movie in general and I’m not. Call me crazy but I want to see my villains facing heroes. I love The Joker but he’s not as interesting when it’s not with Batman.

Then you have the can of worms called confusion. Two Jokers on screen will confuse people. If people like this Joker they’ll want more and then what? If these happen before Flashpoint we could pick and choose and mold them into one universe but still.

As bad as that was. I read today that Matt Reeves Batman movie(s) are stand alone and not connected to the DCEU. It’s at this point I just give up right?

I prefer DC characters to Marvel. I don’t have that connection to Marvel as I do with DC. So DC doing it’s own shared universe, great! I liked Man of Steel a lot. It got me into Superman yay. I was so hyped for BVS but I seen it’s reaction. I lower my expectations and while I enjoyed it, it should have been better. Suicide Squad can and I was excited for it and lower my expectations again. I was still disappointed and bored. I didn’t get hyped for Wonder Woman. I tried my best to not get hyped and it ended up being an amazing experience. Finally DC was on the right path. Not holding my breath on JL or Aquaman yet but hope for the best.

So I had hope for the DCEU again. Wonder Woman 2 gets a date and hopefully Jenkins is on board. Whedon doing Batgirl. The Batman has a director. Flashpoint is coming to reset anything they need for future movies. Then you tell Joker is having an origin story outside of the DCEU. OK it’s dumb IMO and raised too many questions. Now you tell me that this Batman movie I’ve been waiting for, for years will happen but it’s no longer part if this DCEU.

Am I supposed to care about the DCEU? Should I be expecting that it’s going to die and DC is going back to stand alone and leave the shared universe to everyone else!? I was angry but now I’m to a point of why bother. Why should I care about Justice League? This Batman isn’t getting his own movies. Should I be worried about not getting that Wonder Woman movie? Seriously what the fuck?

Comics have multiveres and it works. That doesn’t mean it will in movies. it’s too confusing. Even television doesn’t do this unless you count animation. Which you shouldn’t. There’s not two Green Arrow shows on TV. There’s one.

The Batman trilogy could be great and I will watch them. If it’s not apart of a shared universe than what’s the point? we get that Batman but the one in DCEU that people loved, he doesn’t get a movie. He gets cameos.

It’s just frustrating and confusing. I would for WB to come out and explain this shit but that’s not happening. It’s just here’s a report or rumor, not everyone online make of it as you will. I hate it. A simple clear direction is needed.
