Did You Notice This Deceptive Marketing For The Martian?

Warning: This piece contains spoilers for both Ridley Scott’s new film, The Martian, and the Andy Weir novel it’s based on. 

Ridley Scott’s new film, The Martian – an adaptation of the incredible Andy Weir novel of the same name – just opened to a strong $100 million globally this weekend, and part of me wonders if a small part of that had to do with a bit of deceptive (albeit clever) marketing in the film’s trailers.

They say a hero is only as good as his villain, and this year on The Flash Barry Allen will have his work cut out for him as he faces various members of The Rogues, a team of supervillains who unite to take him down.

We’ll be seeing several Rogues on the series this year, from Captain Cold to Gorilla Grodd. Weather Wizard is first out the gate though, and raises hell in Central City in The Flash‘s premiere episode (read my review here). This summer I was given the chance to talk with Weather Wizard himself, Chad Rook, and asked him about his role on the show, his history with comics, what the future may hold for Weather Wizard, and more!

RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)

I was going to write a big, long post about my love of Robin Williams, and how much I’m going to truly miss him. But honestly, I just can’t. I seriously can’t believe he’s gone, and likely won’t be able to wrap my head around it for a long time. Instead, I’ll just say this: Thank you, Mr. Williams, for the decades of laughter and touching performances. For making my childhood bright and my adulthood rich. You will be truly missed.

Now, if you excuse me, I’m going to go watch Jumanji for the 200th time. I’ll be waiting for you, until the dice read five or eight.

Holy DC Release Dates, Batman!

Today is a damn good day to be a DC Comics fan, because Warner Brothers have finally unveiled their long-term plan for the burgeoning DC Cinematic Universe that began with last year’s Man of Steel! 

The DCCU continues in 2016 with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which until this morning was set to hit theaters on May 6th, 2016 – the same day as Marvel’s Captain America 3. Anyone who ever truly believed that neither studio would move their film is completely bonkers, because that would be horrible for business on both sides. The folks over at WB know this, and have decided to bump Batman V Superman‘s release date up a bit – to March 25th, 2016.
