Comic Movie Trailers: Who’s Winning Now?

If you’re the DC movie universe, it’s all been building up to this: Justice League, scheduled to come out this November. Their movie universe has had a rocky go of it so far, starting like it did with a contentious movie – Man of Steel – which then had an even further polarizing sequel – Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of JusticeSuicide Squad basically played out a scene based on the opening credits scroll of Monty Python and the Holy Grail: hastily redone at the last minute and at great expense.

Possibly with fewer llamas.

They’re powering forward, with their next film, Wonder Woman, looking like it should be fantastic (click here for the latest trailer).


Meanwhile, on the other side, you have this summer’s Spider-Man Homecoming, the third Spider-Man in a decade, and what seems like it should be a really bad spot for Sony – a desperate ploy to make money and keep the rights to this character. However, by teaming up with the MCU and combining universe, this project has gained a lot of confidence. Certainly, the first appearance of this new Spider-Man in Civil War was received well. The first trailer looked cool, plus it has Iron Man!


Anyway, as you may have seen, there was a trailer for both of these films out in the last few days… and then I saw this meme.

What do you think – did Spider-Man Homecoming leave Justice League in the dust? Here’s both trailers for you to watch, then let me know what you think in the comments below!

The Conflicting Romance of Harley Quinn and the Joker

This post contains spoilers for Suicide Squad.

I was part of the record-breaking crowd that saw Suicide Squad last weekend, and I walked away from the film mostly pleased. But there was one part that stuck in my brain and that I couldn’t stop thinking about the whole rest of the day after I saw the movie. I was hooked on the Joker and Harley Quinn’s story, and as soon as I realized I was enjoying its romanticism, I felt thoroughly disgusted with myself. After some introspection, though, I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s a chance that was the film’s end goal.
