Bold Predictions: 2016 Edition

goldcoinsOne year ago I made some bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out.  My performance was mixed–got some, missed some others.  But now it’s time to look ahead to 2016.  Jump after the break to see what I predict will be the top ten grossing films of the year along with 33 other movies I’m making some bold predictions on!

Cosplay Attempt, Take Three

For what is acting is not professional cosplay?
For what is acting if not professional cosplay?

You know something?  I’ve been trying to bring back the daily cosplay feature, and I am just not good at this.  I don’t know how Jenny does it.  I know exactly how Watson does it, because he probably just types “stuff I would wear” into Google and the results just come up.

Well, this is the last time I am trying this.  So, one last shot at a good cosplay…

Slightly Misplaced Comic Book Heroes Case File #45: Faith

I think she got the power of heart to form Captain Planet.
I think she got the power of heart to form Captain Planet.

A common theme to many a Misplaced Hero is that many times there’s only a single creator who’s really enamored with the character.  Oh, other writers and artists may have a decent run with the character, but often once the original creator moves on, the character is quickly relegated to the background or written out of the book entirely.  That is more or less what happened to Snapper Carr.  Creators showing favorites is nothing new, such as how Geoff Johns dealt with Black Adam, or Brian Michael Bendis’ clear love for Luke Cage.  But sometimes the creator love goes to a new character that doesn’t always stick around long.

One such example there is Faith.

Batsoup Trailer, Now With Fewer Spoilers

Get it?  (High five Jenny!)
Get it? (High five Jenny!)

I liked the new Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer, but it definitely has a few “WTF?” moments and some massive spoilers that many would argue should have been kept under wraps until the movies release.  That and the fact that said spoiler totally invalidates the entire concept and advertising of the movie up to that point.  Yes, yes, we all knew it was going to work out that way anyway…

After the cut, see a fan edit of the new trailer by Kevin O’Fee.  Because, “I thought this trailer was buns so I removed the spoilers and awkward silences.”

Not all that many moons ago, Mad Max director George Miller was preparing to direct a Justice League movie called Justice League Mortal.  Unfortunately, even though they had gotten quite far into development and even had the above cast, that movie was not to be.  But recently surfaced photos of Megan Gale as Wonder Woman gives you some idea of what we could have expected.  Catch it after the break.

Slightly Misplaced Comic Book Heroes Case File #41: Rocket Red

 

1847814-rocket_red_2When the Justice League was funny, it was supposed to be tied to the United Nations.  That meant it actually had to have some foreign members instead of the usual collection of Americans.  Oh yeah, some of those Americans were aliens, and Aquaman probably had duel citizenship with Atlantis at the time, but when the closest you can come to a foreign member is Wonder Woman from Paradise Island, then you need to try a little harder and maybe pull out a good guy from a real country instead of a fictional one.

So, yeah, we got ourselves a Russian hero in Rocket Red.
