We’re living in the Dark and Serious(ly boring) Age of comic book movies.
Female characters in comic books are often props for gratuitous T&A, but one local comic writer has found success by doing something radical…depicting women as real people.
One of the complaints against Superman is that he’s boring and unrelatable. After watching Man of Steel this is still a complaint I have against Superman.
VCU creative writing professor Tom De Haven’s talks about Superman’s history, why he wrote the 2005 novel, It’s Superman!, and how the Man of Tomorrow fits into the world of today.
Iron Man 3 takes Tony Stark (and more importantly Robert Downey, Jr.) out of the Iron Man suit for the majority of the film–which is great because that’s what you’re there to see anyway.
The Dark Knight Rises is disappointing, and you can’t cut directory Christopher Nolan any slack, because he’s done it before using all of the same pieces.
