Since the news broke everyone has been going Deathstroke happy! Everything from what version of the costume they are going to use, to where the footage is being shot and how/what role is he going to play in the upcoming Batman solo film. While that still has yet to be confirmed, we decided to go with the biggest discussion: Who is under the mask? Here is our top 5 list of who we think could play Deathstroke the Terminator in the DC live action universe! (PS. you may have to look some of them up!)
Now that DC has established its cinematic universe with Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and the upcoming Wonder Woman and Justice League, I wonder who else from the source material will be making an appearance in the cinematic universe and what stories would DC and Warner Bros. use. With Ben Affleck’s success as Batman I decided to cast some other heroes from Gotham that we might possibly see in ol’ Bat’s film future. I decided to cast the Robins and propose some story lines that would be an awesome segue for the boy wonder. Now I know what you must be thinking… NO!!!! Leave Robin out of the DCEU! Didn’t you see what happened before? Batman and Robin crash and burned the entire franchise!!
I know, which is why I am proposing to cast all the iterations of Robin and not try to combine Dick Grayson and JasonTodd into one character. That being said, we know that the new take on Batman is after the death of Robin. Although it’s not specified in the films I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that they at least got that right and the Robin in question is Jason Todd. If that is the case, then Dick Grayson’s Robin has already come and gone from the Batcave and is now Nightwing. So who do I think would be a good Dick Grayson?
Can you believe that the Summer is just about over? By the time the first day of school rolls around, the big box chains will already have the Halloween banners up. We cannot get a rest! I say we just whittle it down to two seasons: warm & cold. DONE!
However in the toy world, the fourth quarter means holidays, and holidays means shopping. Lots of shopping, which means that the big toy companies (and the little guys as well) are going to spare no expense as to what Junkies should keep their eyes peeled for once the leaves start to change and the flurries begin. Here are some of the coolest items that I have had my eye on all summer because we are always looking out for you toy Junkies that happen to be rabid Wednesday comic book pull-list cowboys and girls. Take a Fall trip to one of Midtown Comics’ three NYC locations for these upcoming goodies because nothing beats NYC in Autumn.
In the blue corner, we have the Last Son of Krypton: Superman! And lurking over in the shadows, we have the Dark Knight: Batman! Everyone knows the Man of Steel is way more powerful than the Caped Crusader, but despite being just a human, Batman should never be underestimated! Thanks to his resources and brilliant mind, Gotham’s hero was able to build a suit that allowed him to take strikes from the immensely strong Kryptonian. This suit first appeared in Frank Miller’s iconic comic The Dark Knight Returns, and it recently made its big screen debut in Batman v Superman. Now, this ridiculously cool-looking armored Batman can make an appearance right in your collection!
