Immortals begins with an ominous dream in which a man uses a mythic bow to free the Titans who were locked away by the gods.  We are told how the gods defeated the titans, and in the midst of their battle the powerful Epirus Bow was lost.  Now, eons later, the vicious King Hyperion seeks to find the bow and set free the Titans, allowing him to reign destruction across the earth….

When it comes to the movies?  DC has been struggling to  keep up with Marvel.  Part of this is really that DC did not lay out a plan from the start. While Marvel Released films with an aim toward the Avengers, DC was trying to figure out where to start.  The Nolan Batman films were a critical success, but also very much their own universe.  When they made Green Lantern, most attempts… Read More

The trailer is unclear if Batman has been active for years or if he retired, though there seems to be indications he is returning to his cowl. While I am a bit bummed that we will not have an established friendship, they are… Read More

Preface: This is a review I wrote two years ago.  I have, however, edited it a bit. And lo, there was much controversy and arguing. So it was I saw finally got around to seeing the tale Man of Steel.  Zak Snyder, David Goyer and Christopher’s grimmer take on the Superman mythos. In a lot of ways, this is a response to the toughly reviewed Superman Returns. One of the cries was… Read More
