The DC live-action multiverse is finally canon thanks to “Worlds of DC”!

Welcome back to my blog. 

Back in 2012-2013, when Arrow was airing its first season, fans started wondering if it would have had anything to do with Man of Steel, which would have kickstarted DC’s equivalent to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

For more than a year, everything was left ambiguous. Batman v. Superman was announced, The Flash appeared on Arrow and everybody started thinking that this would have been a nice fusion of the movies and TV shows.

However, it was then revealed that the movies would have been their own thing, the DC Cinematic Universe, whereas the TV shows were going to be separate universes. It seemed like a live-action multiverse was going to take place.

In fact, Arrow and The Flash weren’t just airing while the movies were in production, but NBC also had a Constantine show, Fox had Gotham and CBS was going to produce Supergirl.

Of course, that felt like a hugely missed opportunity, because you can’t have almost every corner of network TV filled with DC shows without even try to just broadly connect them.

However, it was then shown that the connection was indeed real: John Constantine appeared on Arrow, while Supergirl was stated to be one of the multiple Earths of The Flash. Gotham was the only one on its own, but the cast was open to make a crossover.

Then, it was the time of the movie universe, which was then called DC Extended Universe. 

We all know how everything turned out to be with what was supposed to become the Pepsi to Marvel’s Coca-Cola. It was clear how the TV shows were way better connected, and that the Arrowverse was much closer to be the actual DC answer to the MCU.

In fact, while the TV side of DC is thriving (especially now, with the upcoming DC Universe streaming service), the movie side is falling all over the place, with the top being Martin Scorsese’s Joker movie, which would have not cared about the DCEU’s iteration of the clown prince of crime.

It seemed like the project of a movie franchise was going to be dead after only 5 movies (not including the three currently in different stages of production).

However, at San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that this franchise would have taken a new name. Well, not new, because, apparently, DC Extended Universe wasn’t even the official name, so it’s more like asking someone to stop using a made up name before revealing the true one, which is:

WORLDS OF DC!

An excellent title that opens the possibility of creating limitless franchises and, who knows, finally tying together all the projects that started popping up during this half decade.

Elseworlds movies may happen (with The Joker as the first one) and a movie or a TV show can be part of the franchise even without following its continuity. It’s a win-win scenario where the DC Extended Universe can continue existing, but by becoming part of something way bigger.

After all, nothing stops DC from adapting the Infinite Earths, so maybe this is where they can be headed.

Okay, it’s been more than a year since the last time something related to a DC movie made me excited.

Well, I am glad that DC decided to finally acknowledge that they have been building up a huge multiverse in movies and TV shows, and everything would have been a big waste if they decided to simply toss them in favor of a franchise that has hit rock bottom multiple times. 

In fact, I will now ask you which shows and franchises you think they should deserve to be part of this franchise.

  • The DC Extended Universe (which is still the biggest franchise there)
  • The Arrowverse (the live-action multiverse that keeps growing and growing after six years)
  • Gotham (the biggest network show not to be part of the Arrowverse, at least not yet)
  • Black Lightning & iZombie (they’re probably Arrowverse, though)
  • The DC Universe shows (will they be their own Earth?)
  • Krypton (is it still a DCEU prequel?)
  • The Joker movie (as the first of a series of Elseworlds)
  • Pennyworth (upcoming show about Batman’s butler)

It would be pretty interesting to see those franchises be united as one, which would reflect the early days of American comic books, when the various books weren’t supposed to be together, and as such they formed many continuity snarls when they did.

See you, next time, here, on the Empty Blog! 

Non mi sembra l’ultimo dell’anno

31 Dic

Bentornati nel blog vuoto. In questo momento, sta iniziando la mattina del 31 Dicembre, e, nel godermi l’alba, pensavo a una cosa: non mi sembra l’ultimo dell’anno.

Questa è la prima volta in cui arrivo a questo giorno senza avere la sensazione che qualcosa stia finendo, e tutto mi sembra a dir poco assurdo, perché non so come spiegarmelo.

Qualche anno fa, avevo iniziato a sentirmi in questo modo durante la mezzanotte, nel senso che non avevo più l’impressione che si fosse entrati in qualcosa di nuovo, a differenza di adesso.

Forse, è una cosa buona, perché non sento il “peso” di dover concludere qualcosa o l’ansia di un nuovo inizio. Ormai, è come se il 31 Dicembre fosse un giorno come altri, con la differenza che è l’ultimo del nostro calendario.

Questo post, però, ha una cosa particolare: vuole infatti “festeggiare” la fine del 2017 insieme alle “categorie minori” del mio blog, quelle che raramente vedono un articolo a differenza di quelle principali come quelle sul calcio, sulle serie TV e sui tokusatsu (non c’è anche la scrittura perché anch’essa ha avuto il suo post finale separato).

Tutte le altre, infatti, arrivano ora, perché voglio dedicare il primo dei “tre post finali” anche a loro.

Direi che possiamo procedere.

Cinema, Fumetti, Che Splendida Estate, 3 Serie in 3 Sere, Tekken & Pokémon (che quest’anno si sono pure unite). Mi chiedo quante di queste saranno ancora qui, e volevo che comunque avessero un pezzo di chiusura.

Ecco, quindi, che passo all’ultimo post del mese e all’ultimo dell’anno.

Alla prossima, sempre qui, sul blog vuoto!

Out of boredom, let’s talk about this picture

25 Ott

Nessun testo alternativo automatico disponibile.

Welcome back to my blog. So, after a whole day studying, I feel a bit bored, and I decided to talk about this picture, which is clearly designed to spark a DC vs Marvel flame. I mean, “comment and make yourself look stupid!”. This is a troll that shouldn’t be considered, but, again, I’m bored, so, hell, let’s talk about this unbiased image.

Just having a weird, simple and funny time with Marvel and DC superhero (and villain) costumes

27 Lug

Imagine to have some groups of either heroes or villains from Marvel and DC, using only the main colour of their costume to put them there.

You may end up with some improbable team-ups, but what if they fight and compete? Who would win?

Here are those teams, if I were to choose them.

Oh, I’ll only choose 6 per colour.

 

Red: Flash, Daredevil, Deadpool, Robin, Spider-Man and Carnage

Blue: Superman, Mr. Fantastic, Atom, Captain Cold, Captain America and Cyclops

Green: Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Swamp Thing, Green Goblin, Jean Grey and the Hulk

Yellow: Wolverine, Yellowjacket, Sinestro, Reverse Flash, Kid Flash and Sentry

Black: Black Canary, Black Panther, Dark Archer, Black Bolt, Venom and Nightwing

Grey: Thor, Batman, Colossus, Quicksilver, Cyborg and Killer Frost

White: Emma Frost, Moon Knight, Power Girl, White Canary, White Tiger and Magneto

Others: Aquaman, Firestorm, Deathstroke, Iron Man, Starlord and Doctor Strange

I just did this for having fun, but can you imagine a fight like this? It would be weird, but also amazing!

10 cose che il film animato Ultimate Avengers ha previsto sul Marvel Cinematic Universe

19 Lug

Bentornati nel blog vuoto.

Ho appena finito di guardare Ultimate Avengers perché avevo voglia di un film animato Marvel.

Nel guardarlo, sapendo che è del 2006, mi ha sorpreso vedere quante cose ha anticipato rispetto al Marvel Cinematic Universe, al punto da sembrare quasi una sorta di “come sarebbe stato l’MCU se fosse partito con The Avengers”.

Ecco a voi 10 cose che ha previsto.
