By JK Schmidt - December 22, 2018 10:42 am EST Share 2 Comments 2 Many Star Wars fans are used to big time jumps between installments in the Skywalker saga. In fact, the only films that DIDN'T have a significant gap between events came in the latest trilogy, with Star Wars: The Last Jedi picking up right after the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The next film in the saga is getting back to basics and embracing tradition, as Empire Magazine reports that Star Wars: Episode IX will take place one year after the previous film in the franchise. Empire's 2019 movie preview offers one of our first confirmed details for J.J.

By Kofi Outlaw - November 9, 2017 05:45 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 Wonder Woman is coming to theaters carrying the weight of DC Film's future on its back, as DC Extended Universe movies like Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad left critics unimpressed, and fans bitterly divided. Wonder Woman has been touted as the turnaround point for the DCEU - and with the recent major shakeups with Justice League, it's Wonder Woman that has the best chance of bringing a much-needed win for the DC Comics movie universe. Like Captain America: The First Avenger, Wonder Woman has the freedom of being a period piece that's set chronologically before the rest of the events we've seen in other DC films. However, the movie still has enough connective tissue to fit snuggly within the established DCEU mythology, while possibly pushing certain elements of the universe forward. Read on for an explanation of Wonder Woman's DC Extended Universe Connections. (Warning: This … [Read more...] about Wonder Woman’s DCEU Connections Explained

By Kofi Outlaw - November 9, 2017 05:44 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 Wonder Woman is now in theaters and is getting a (generally) warm welcome from fans and critics alike. Of course, as with any movie, Wonder Woman isn't immune to its fair share of criticisms, and one of the biggest nitpicks so far has been whether or not this DC Extended Universe entry bears too much of a resemblance to certain Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Captain America: The First Avenger hit theaters in 2011, kicking the saga of Steve Rogers/Captain America, which has since become one of Marvel's top franchises. In every discussion thread about Wonder Woman that's happening right now, there seems to be a section of the discussion dedicated to whether or not the film is too derivative of The First Avenger. So is it a fair criticism? Or are some viewers trying to stretch a little bit of coincidence into being more than it is? Is Wonder Woman Too Similar to Captain America: The First … [Read more...] about Is Wonder Woman Too Similar to Captain America: The First Avenger?
