September Update, stats, and the like

It feels like it’s been quite a while since I’ve gone and done just a regular blog-style post where I share my thoughts on where the site is, where it’s been, and where it’s going. I’ll also share a few stats from August which I totally didn’t steal from another blogger who I follow but can’t remember but when I do remember I will totally give them a link right here. I find it fascinating how things can change over time. I’m closing in on four years writing on this site and what it is now is pretty different from what it was three years ago even though I’m still watching and reviewing superhero and comic book movies as the one constant.

C2E2 Day 1

I’m home from my first day at Chicago’s Comics and Entertainment Expo 2015 and I am exhausted! I spent most of my time on the floor, I’ve got hopefully a nice little project in the works that I’ll be able to share after the event is over, and I also got a couple panel rundowns to share with you.

Superhero TV Site Project

As most of you reading this may know, I’m a big fan of superheroes and movies which was one reason why I created this site. It’s been a lot of fun and it’s not going anywhere. But I also have a love of television and while this year has really grown from zero to one prime time superhero and comic book television shows to 6: Walking Dead, Gotham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, The Flash, Arrow, and Constantine, with Daredevil, Supergirl, Teen Titans, the other Netflix shows, and more in development. It’s a crazy time to be a fan of superheroes on TV. And of course, there’s still plenty of kid-friendly animated shows from both DC and Marvel including an upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon. So what I would like to do is to create a spin-off site that covers all of these television shows as well as retro looks at past TV shows. But there is just too much out there and if I tried to do this alone, both sites would suffer. So I need your help! Check out below to see what I’m looking for and how you can help.

Why doesn’t DC make a theatrical animated movie?

Aside from a couple of their big movies like the original Superman, and some of the Batman movies, DC has yet to really capitalize on their cast of characters in the theaters. While Marvel has had a handful of bad movies, they haven’t had many unsuccessful movies. DC however has had many flops. From Steel to Catwoman to Supergirl to Superman 3 & 4 to recent disappointments like Green Lantern and the Spirit, DC hasn’t had the best of luck with their secondary characters. But one thing that DC has going for it that fewer people know about is their amazing animation department. For the past several years, DC Animation has been cranking out some fantastic direct-to-DVD animated movies led by the talented Bruce Timm who was famously behind Batman: The Animated Series. The quality of these movies is generally very high, with great animation, great stories, and great voice acting. But the question is, why don’t they make one into a theatrical feature film?
