I am going to open this mini-review of the Justice League movie with this statement, DC books were the first american superhero comic books I started collecting, it started on a rainy afternoon in the early 1990’s, in the Waterstones bookstore in the heart of Leicester. I picked up Justice League Europe (part of the Giffen era) and I was hooked. It was humor, super-heroics, paced action and sang with the joy of hope. I was hooked and spent a lot to time and money, back collecting Justice League, International, Europe and a few crossovers. So, it is safe to say I’ve been fan of DC for over 25 years.
First lets start this post with this – it is possible to be a fan of something and still be able to criticize it, this act does not make you less of a fan, it just means you expected better.

Anyhow don’t take my word for it check out the trailer below. Continue reading →
Over 2011 we followed the ups and downs of the NBC attempted relaunch of the Wonder Woman franchise on their network. After the teaser release of the Wonder Woman outfit, and the amusing outrage it produced, the entire production fell to series of focus groups and poorly thought out rewrites.
The final product was so bad, and remember NBC are the network who released the Cape, that the Pilot of was shelved and we may never see the final cut. Bits and pieces have leaked out on the net, some of it dire, some it mediocre and some of it actually looked okay. Yesterday I discovered a re-imagined trailer for the raw footage from the Wonder Woman Pilot, I think it contain clips from all the action sequences and actually doesn’t look that bad. Take a look for yourself after the jump. Continue reading →
