46 – Tam & Wumi Save The DCEU

Deeby’s away for his birthday, so Wumi and I took advantage of this to talk Nothin’ But Comics! You’ll probably hear the moment when I realise I don’t know as much about current comic arcs as I thought:

These writeups might be a bit bare – and late – over the next couple of weeks, as I’m preparing to direct a short film, which is great, arduous and terrifying. It’s a wonderful feeling, I love it.

Anyway, here’s the most recent trailer for Wonder Woman:

Just after recording this episode, it was announced that the DCEU films post-Justice League will rely heavily on flashbacks and flashforwards as a storytelling device. Deeby will not be happy to hear that.

“It’s for the fans, not the critics” – it’s a phrase heard after many disappointing films, BvS and Suicide Squad included. io9 recently posted an article about this statement, explaining how this is a pretty crappy statement to make. This comes after Iron Fist star Finn Jones response to early reviews to the upcoming Netflix show.

That’s all for this week. Deeby’s still away, so maybe we’ll have a guest on. Maaaybe.
