Supergirl TV Show

Supergirl TV Show

A friend of mine told me the other day that a Supergirl TV show was in the making and I can’t believe I didn’t know anything about it!! I did some research and here’s everything I could find!

The series will probably air next year on CBS and it will follow the adventures of a 20-something year old Kara Zor-El who decides to embrace her powers and become a warrior. This will offer some modern superhero drama like other DC Comics shows such as Arrow and more recently The FlashContinue reading

Suicide Squad Movie Details

Suicide Squad

A few months ago Warner Bros revealed their DC Comics movie schedule. I didn’t report it because I think they’re just copying Marvel and DC movies, except Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy, are not very good. One of the movies that caught my attention though was the Suicide Squad movie, planned for Summer 2016.

Now they’ve revealed the cast for the movie and you won’t believe who’s in!! The movie will be filled with A List stars and it looks really good. I’ve never read any comics, but the storyline is very interesting. For those of you who don’t know what the Suicide Squad is, it’s a group of villains hired by the US Government to work for them so they have prison privileges or their sentences reduced. Check out the cast below!  Continue reading

TV Recap of the Week

American Horror Story - Freak Show - Ep 1

Hey guys, I know I haven’t ben posting for a while, but I was in a family trip to New York this past week and I took that time off! I’ll talk to you about this amazing vacation in an other post, so now I’ll be focusing on all the TV I missed this week and I’ve caught up with in the past two or three days!

I’m going to talk about all my favorite shows in airing order and I hope I don’t miss anything! I’ve been so tired from the long trip (13 hours by plane from NY to my hometown) that watching all these shows has helped me rest and get over that exhaustion.

So, let’s start with the recap!  Continue reading

Gotham – Season 1 – Pilot Recap

Gotham - Season 1 - Ep 1

Monday night was also the premiere of DC Comics‘ new Tv show Gotham. I was very excited about this new series, especially because Ben McKenzie stars in it, but I have to say that he didn’t convince me as detective Jim Gordon, I couldn’t stop thinking about Ryan Atwood from The OC the whole time, he kept making the same facial expressions he did back then!!

I love the idea of the show, telling every Batman villain story from the beginning since Bruce Wayne was still a kid. I love that the whole plot of the show spins around the murder of his parents and you get to see how everyone is involved.  Continue reading

I chose some of the shows I’m already watching and some of the new shows that I’m very excited to watch. There’re also some series that I stopped watching because I got tired of them or they were getting very bad, like for example Hart Of Dixie and Cougar TownContinue reading

Top 10 Comics that need a Movie + Actors who should star in them

Soulfire - Michael Turner

There are lots of great comic books that haven’t been adapted into movies yet that I would really like to see in the big screen. Now the superheroes are the biggest Hollywood money makers, but there’re a bunch of indie comics that are awesome too and of course some superheroes that haven’t been on screen yet.

I love strong, powerful and fearless women, those are my favorite characters and I love when they are leading characters in comic books. I also love when superheroes are funny and have a good personality like Spider-ManContinue reading

Top 10 Female Comic Book Villains

Harley & Ivy - J. Scott Campbell

One of the first posts I ever posted on this blog was a Top 10 list of female heroes from my favorite comics. (Check it out here!)

The truth is that I normally tend to like more the villains than the heroes and I don’t know why did it take me so long to do a list with my favorite ones. This happens to me not only reading comics, in movies and especially TV shows I always like the villains more than the heroes, my friends always tell me that if we lived in a comic book or a fantasy show I would be a villain, haha.

Arrow Series Review

Arrow_cast

I know I haven’t posted anything in a while, but this past two weeks I’ve been hooked on The CW‘s show Arrow. I love comic books, but I’m more of a Marvel fan than a DC one. I mean, there’re lots of DC heroes that I really like, Batman, Wonder Woman, Supergirl and there’re even more DC villains that I love, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, The Joker, but I’ve never been a big fan of Green Arrow.

Two of my best friends have been insisting me to watch the show since it started in 2012, but I never listened to them.

Top 10 Sexiest Comic Heroes & Villains In Movies [Female Edition]

Today I finally got to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the cinema! I really enjoyed the movie, it was definitely much better than the first one. Marvel is getting better and better with every movie, I thought they wouldn’t be able to surpass The Avengers, but I was very impressed with Thor 2 and now this!

Another thing I noticed, is how sexy Black Widow was in this movie! So, I started thinking in all the heroes, heroines and villains that have been adapted in the big screen and all of them are very good looking people, what can we expect from Hollywood, right?

Top 10 Superhero Movies

The Superhero genre has become very popular now in Hollywood with all the Marvel movies coming out and The Dark Knight saga. I decided to do a top 10 with my favorites, but I’m gonna include only one movie per hero or team. It’s gonna be difficult but I’m sure I’ll come up with a good list!

This list is not about any comic book made into a movie, it’s based only in the superhero genre, so no Sin City or 300 here.

I also want to say that there’s lot of good movies I haven’t seen so don’t be mad if your favorite ones didn’t make the cut, maybe it’s because I haven’t seen it yet.

10. Captain America: The First Avenger 

I love this movie because of its historic roots and because we get to see the origins of Marvel’s biggest superhero Captain America. Though it was a little bit long for me, I really enjoyed it and can’t wait for the sequel!

9. The Wolverine

This wasn’t the best superhero movie, but it was a big surprise after the horror that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine! It was such a relief that I ended up loving this one! Plus Hugh Jackman is amazing here!!

8. Fantastic 4

I know this franchise wasn’t very successful and only got two movies, but I really liked them. It’s true that the second one, Raise Of Silver Surfer, wasn’t very good, but I loved the first movie. I loved Julian McMahon playing the bad guy again like he did in Charmed and of course Jessica Alba!

7. Blade 2

Is it crazy that I had never watched the Blade movies until last year? I know! But now that I’ve seen them all, I love them! My favorite one was Blade 2 and it was amazing! I really liked it and it was crazy to see Santiago Segura (a very famous and funny Spanish actor) in the movie!

6. Thor: The Dark World

I wasn’t a big fan of the first Thor movie, but I loved the second one! It had everything: action, drama, love and a lot of laughs! Seriously, I spent the whole movie laughing. It was really really good!

Thor-the-Dark-World

5. Iron Man

I’m not a very big fan of Iron Man in the comics, but in the movies I love him! Thanks Robert Downey Jr. His portrayal of the superhero makes it one of the best heroes ever! I love the 3 Iron Man movies, but the first one will always have that thing that makes it better!

4. Batman Returns

Ok, don’t get mad! I know everyone was expecting The Dark Knight to be my pick for the Batman movie, but I really prefer the Tim Burton movies. Don’t get me wrong, I love The Dark Knight saga, but the old movies were more true to the comics and I really like them more. Plus I grew up watching them, so I have a nostalgic feeling for them. My favorite one is Batman Returns. Thanks to Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny DeVito for their amazing villain portrayals!

3. The Avengers

Ok, this is the most EPIC superhero movie that has ever been made! Everyone agrees right? I can watch this movies over and over and I don’t care how long it is, I love it! It even made me love Hulk (I didn’t really care for him before) and everyone is amazing in this! It’s just superhero perfection! Thanks Joss Whedon!

2. Spider-Man 2

Spider-Man is one of my favorite Marvel heroes and the first trilogy was amazing! Well, the third movie was a bit of a joke, but I liked them all. It’s obvious that the best one was the second one and I think everyone agrees with me on this one. It was just epic and Dr. Octopus was really great!

1. X2 

And number 1 is… Of course I had to choose an X-Men movie! I know I already put The Wolverine on this list, but they have separated comics, so it’s ok! I had a very difficult time choosing between X2 and X-Men: First Class, both movies were amazingly good, but I finally chose X2! It has the original cast and it was always my favorite hero movie since I was a kid, so I had to choose it!

X2 ONE SHEET A ¥ Art Machine Job#5263 ¥ Version A ¥  02/28/03

I know I only chose one DC Comics movie and all the others are from Marvel Comics, but I don’t like Superman movies at all! And I’ve always liked Marvel heroes more!

There’re great superhero movies coming up this year, so I’ll have to change this list probably! haha

If you don’t agree you can tell me your favorite movies in the comments! Hope you enjoyed!

Top 10 Female Comic Book Heroes

As you can see I love making up lists of anything and if you get to know me you’d see I’m a little obsessed with listing everything. I love reading comic books and I wanted to make my first post on the comics section with a list of my favorite female comic book heroes.

Keep in mind this is based on my personal taste only and we might disagree in some of them. For this list I only used heroes and not villains so don’t freak out if you don’t see Catwoman or Mystique on this list!! I’m planning a female villains list for another post.

Also I’m only using characters originally created for the comic book industry, so no Lara Croft or Buffy here!

So here are my favorite female heroes:

10.Storm (X-Men)

I’d like to start this list with Storm, because she’s one of my favorite X-Men. She’s got great powers and she’s a kick-ass woman. I also like her movie version, I think Halle Berry really did justice to her.

9. Supergirl  

The Supergirl saga from Superman/Batman by Michael Turner is one of my favorite stories of the DC Universe. I like that they recreated her origins for a new and younger fan base and I really loved the result.

8. Kiani (Fathom)

As you can imagine I love Michael Turner, he’s my favorite comic book artist and I miss him so much. He created this amazing underwater world for his Fathom series and Kiani is one of my favorite characters. She’s a badass underwater creature that you should’t mess around with.

7. Abbey Chase (Danger Girl)

Another of my favorite comic book artist is J. Scott Campbell and I love Danger Girl! I love all the characters of this amazing story, but Abbey is just the best. I love her sultry attitude and her looks, plus she’s got a good sense of humor! What else could you ask for?

Abbey

6. Rogue (X-Men)

Ok, Rogue has always been my favorite girl from X-Men, specially in the 90s cartoon TV show! But they really messed up in the movies!! C’mon, I don’t have anything against Anna Paquin, but I just didn’t like the way she was portrayed in the movie franchise.

Rogue2

5. Sara Pezzini (Witchblade)

Another Michael Turner creation and what an amazing woman Sara Pezzini is!! Although I stopped reading the series a few years ago, I’ve always loved Witchblade. It wasn’t only the story or the amazing art by Turner and others after him, this series just got something special and I love it!

feadd1d40ca531f02caadf62b14632e7

4. Wonder Woman

Who doesn’t love Wonder Woman? She’s the supreme leader of the amazons and is the most important female character in the DC Universe. She has great powers, strength a magic bow and an invisible plane!! She just rocks!

WonderWomanIdentityCrisisPo

3. Jean Grey/Phoenix  (X-Men)

Since the disappointment with Rogue after the X-Men movies, I had to choose a new favorite girl from the team! I didn’t only choose one, I chose two! The second one is Jean Grey. I love her as a normal mutant with her telekinetic powers, but I love her even more when she becomes the Phoenix, especially Dark Phoenix, she’s just the most powerful creature in the whole Universe. Impressive!

2. Emma Frost (X-Men)

Well, and here is my ultimate favorite X-Men girl! I love Emma Frost! The White Queen! She’s got some amazing telepathic powers and she can change her skin into diamond. She’s just awesome! I also love her sultry personality and her sense of fashion. She’s just perfect!

1. Aspen Matthews (Fathom)

And of course my number 1 comic book female character has to be Aspen Matthews!! She’s a kick-ass marine biologist who discovers that she comes from an underwater species and has the ability to manipulate water. She almost causes the end of the human race, but she ended up saving us! She’s just amazing! Thanks Michael Turner for creating characters and stories like this, I miss you! RIP

Again this is my personal opinion and you can tell me if you agree or not in the comments!! You can also suggest other list to make in the future!!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy!!
