Warner Bros and DC movies of the future

Hello Everyone.

Here it is, a beautiful Thursday morning, and I find my mind wandering towards the wonderful world of movies.  As I think of all of the wonderful Marvel movies that could be coming out in the next 8 years, I stop and wonder what DC and Warner Brothers might have in store.  As it turns out, yesterday WB put out a press release with such wonderful tidbits of news!  As of October 15, 2014 WB has staked a claim on the vacant dates of the future for movies they are hoping will be released to the much happy noises of fans.  Here is an overview of the schedule released:

Mar-25-16   Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (honestly, we all knew about this one with all of the news fans have been hounding out about it)
Aug-5-16     Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer*
Jun-23-17    Wonder Woman
Nov-17-17    Justice League Part One
Mar-23-17   The Flash staring Ezra Miller
Jul-27-17     Aquaman staring Jason Momoa
Apr-5-19     Shazam with Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam
Jun-14-19    Justice League Part Two
Apr-3-20     Cyborg
Jun-19-20    Green Lantern

As with all movies, dates are subject to change.

*David Ayer is known for writing and directing Fury, Sabotage, End of Watch, Training Day (W), and The Fast and the Furious (W).

So what does this mean?  Well, honestly, this means about as much as the paper it is written on.  Nil.  What does it mean to me as a fan?  It means YAY!!!  I am so excited to see Wonder Woman is on this list.  For anyone that thinks that her character is not strong enough for a solo movie, you should see the animated Wonder Woman movie.  It is pretty good.  And on a side note about that, let us just wait for the movie to come out before the judging begins.

There was no real mention or talk about Sandman with Joseph Gordon-Levitt which leads me to believe that this movie will not be included in the WB cinematic universe.  This is fine because there is so much about Sandman that does not really belong in the same universe as the Justice League.  The other stunning news was that there is no set date for solo movies for Batman and Superman.  Although confirmed stand alone movies for each character have been announced by WB, with Affleck at the helm of the Batman title, the release just stated that the movies would come out before 2020.  Again, this is fine.  When there is so much information to shove into such a short time period, relatively, if too much gets forced into this time frame, we could see a weakening in the movie making just like what happened in Iron Man 2…It is still a good enough movie, but had the studio allowed a bit more time spent on the incubation of the film, it could have been an overall better film.

I have added the link to the press release for those who are interested in reading the actual source.  Have a great day, week, month, year, and I hope we all look to the future with an optimistic attitude instead of a negative facade because it is what is “cool” to do.

Show #47

Hello All.  We have a new humorous show!  One of the entertainment items we discuss is the new show Gotham.  We have come to the conclusion that someone listens to our show that writes these shows and movies because everything that we talk about keeps happening.  Also, the Deadpool movie is happening.  View the short “leaked” online that helped launch that. Leave a comment or question for us and we will answer it to the best of our ability.  Have a great week.

Show #44 TMNT Special

Welcome back to Bargain Bin Radio!  We have been on a slight hiatus due to SUMMER!  As you all know, we live in Northern Minnesota, and summer here lasts precisely 45 days then it is back to 1 million days of winter, so we are enjoying.  One of the many things we love to enjoy during this time of the year are the summer blockbusters (thanks Jaws).  Coming soon will be Guardians of the Galaxy, then 1 week later Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, followed the next week by Expendables 3.  August is looking pretty actiony.

With that in mind, we decided to do an episode mostly devoted to TMNT.  We do tend to go on mini tangents, but we actually manage to stay on track for most of the show.  If you like what you hear, you can download the show in iTunes podcast, for FREE, leave a rating, or comment here or on facebook.  We really appreciate you taking your time to listen to us and comment.

Thank you!

Also, as promised, here are a few little videos dedicated to TMNT fun.

New content in progress…

So we are working on our new segment: A Guy, A Girl, and a Game Machine.  It has been interesting to learn how the game capture box works along with how steep of a learning curve we still have when it comes to computer type things.  But through perseverance, trial and error, and a bunch of cursing we have finally gotten our fancy little piece of technology to work.  The new video segment will feature Josh and myself playing a game, from many different categories and systems, along with out normal pithy and witty commentary.  If you have any games you would like to see either or both of use play, please leave a message below or find us on facebook and leave a message there.  We are hoping to have a great time with this, so the more interaction from our community the better.

Thanks again!
