Prophecies have ordained that the final battle of chaos and order shall take place in a firepit–a burning, blasting sore on the surface of Apokolips.
There the father shall face the son he gave to his greatest enemy, and die at his hand.
—Paul Levitz and Keith Giffen, Legion of Super-Heroes #294, 28
Warner and DC should be making a New Gods film trilogy… without Zack Snyder.
Where’s the Martian Manhunter, Hawkgirl, or any one of 3,603 Green Lanterns?
I finally watched this film after the night shift at work and, despite being a critic of it for a long time, I can now conclude that I’m just neutral about it. While this is not the worst superhero film that I have ever seen, it is a notch lower than Man of Steel when it didn’t need to be. Deadpool is still the film to beat.
If you’re into big explosions, watch it. If you want a story, don’t watch it. If you’re a comics fan, watch it, but only once.
- Is that Doomsday or Frankenstein-Zod?
- Are those winged-flying things Parademons, Thangarians, or flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz?
- Where’s Spider-Man?
Huh? Well let’s hope for great justice that they take off every ZIG.
