POWERLESS TV review(Even Tudyk looks suspicious of the TV ratings of Powerless)

NBC‘s Powerless is nothing more than a thinly veiled sitcom wrapped within the world of DC‘s land of vigilantes and meta humans. And it’s even failing at doing that. It feels like even the creative team behind the show has no clue how to handle this product and they’re winging it. With a swing and a miss!

Alan Tudyk things on Amazon

The show follows the staff of an insurance company that specializes in products that protect the  defenseless innocent public bystanders from the collateral damage of Superheroes and Supervillains.

After watching a few episodes of Powerless, despite the cast of Alan Tudyk, Vanessa Hudgens and a few others, the episodes use a very light framework of a plot in each episode. They only have thirty minutes and they populate those thirty minutes with giddy-based story and characters with googly eyes and goofy banter.

DC Comics on Amazon.

Here and there we hear or see references to the standard inventory of DC comics characters, but nothing about this show pulls me in. The characters themselves seem like sad, thinly thought out personalities who live in a city populated by heroes who destroy public property all around our characters, while they try to dream up inventions to help protect the population.

Ben Affleck as Batman

After having the new Batman premiere in Batman V Superman (BvS), I was surprised and found myself enjoying Ben Affleck‘s rendition of Bruce Wayne/Batman. Kudos. I also enjoyed the harsher side of Batman. Affleck has done a good enough job that he’s been tagged by DC/WB to put together the solo Batman film. He’s also been given executive producer powers on the Justice League film, so he’s obviously been given creative control over some aspects of the film.

The film, to this day, is titled The Batman. But…

Recently Affleck has been noted to say that he will not be rushed in putting together the script and that he won’t be making a sub-par Batman film. He’ll be treading in the tracks of Christopher Nolan, and seeing what Nolan did, I fully expect DC/WB to pull their creatively insecure fingers out of Ben’s work and let him do what he does best, because he does make great movies too.

The Dark Knight on Amazon

What’s awesome about this project is that Affleck is co-writing the script with “the man” from DC, Geoff Johns.

But at this point in time Affleck made mention in an interview that the script is still not ready. There have been rumors that the studio was not happy with the first rendition of the script.

Fans have been told that the film will be an original story with some familiar characters and iconic bad guys. But now word on the street in various sources are saying that filming will begin in the Los Angeles region, with or without Affleck attached to the film.

Is DC Really Banning Humor From Their Comic Movies?

August 27, 2014

There’s news (or rumor) running around that Warner Bros is frowning on any lighthearted humor in their superhero movies. But to be perfectly honest, this rumor seems to be a mandate getting handed down by DC Comics. And to be honest, if true, it feels like a mistake. Or is it that they realize their […]
