The Rise of Ra’s al Ghul in DC Live Action

It’s interesting to me how certain things catch an unexpected wind and take flight. Like viral videos (Seriously, how did Chewbacca mom get more than 11 total views), no one ever knows what will gain speed. A strange example to me is the abundance of appearances of Ra’s al Ghul and his daughters in DC live action over the last decade.

Powerless: Wayne Dream Team Review

*Spoilers ahead*

The second episode of a new series is notoriously trickier than a pilot. While a pilot needs to set up the world, characters, and basic trademarks of a new television show, the second episode introduces something just a important: how the show works week to week.

While the movie had issues, I found it a very good, fresh modern Superman story.

When Marvel created the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was touted as a shared universe between all of their different live action projects. That’s a pretty cool idea. Currently, Marvel has three different types of live action products going on. The big screen movies, some epic, like the Avengers and Captain America films, some much smaller, like Antman. The network TV stuff, produced for ABC because of the Disney ownership of both Marvel and ABC, and the Netflix streaming projects like Daredevil and Jessica Jones. But do they really play well in the same sand box, and should they?
