Comics Wrap-Up - To Escape This Old World

Comics! Superheroes! Trailers! Links!

Let's do this! :)




Film Trailers


There's a new li'l trailer for SHAZAM! which continues to totally baffle me - is this good or trash? 😕

I'm hoping for good, obviously, and it def. has potential... but it could also turn into something only enjoyed by white boys aged 8-12. Let's hope the latter doesn't happen. 😅

Other Stuff



Hopefully that will very firmly end the argument that Black-led stories aren't beneficial for big companies to make.

Screen Rant's Ryan George has made another awesome Pitch Meeting - this time for the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home.

And, to finish off this week, here's a look at comics vs. female anatomy/personhood by S W Sondheimer @ Book Riot










Do you think Black Panther has a chance at the Best Picture Oscar?
Do you think there's a problem with how women are drawn in comics?

  1. I have to say, I was shocked when Black Panther was nominated for best picture, but mostly because the academy seems to only have a taste for drama and comedies, and they never pay much attention to superhero movies at all! To be honest, I don’t think it will win because of this taste, but I applaud it for being the first superhero movie nominated for best picture! It’s also an outstanding achievement in Black filmmaking!

    1. I think it'd be a longshot to win, for sure. But it's awesome that it got the nomination it damn well deserves! (Although, I think that a few of the actors should also have had individual nominations, tbh!)
