With Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice just over 7 months away. Zack Snyder has ramped up his campaign to bring DC into the light once again. Recently, Empire Magazine who is known for getting exclusive photos and stories on upcoming block busters, recently released its images from the upcoming ‘Batman v Superman: DOJ.’

The feature released in Empire Magazine had an interview with movie set designer Patrick Tatopoulos. He spoke a bit about his inspiration for the design of The Batmobile, Batwing and the BatCave. He claims his inspiration came from the upcoming Justice League which isn’t set to hit theaters till 2017. Justice League won’t even begin filming until next year. So What does this mean for BvS..?

In an interview with Empire, Patrick Tatopoulos has this to say:

With The Justice League coming, it influences my designs of the Batcave, the Batmobile, the Batwing.

He went on to say:

We are creating a world for Batman – every set, every prop, is real. We have to be ready for whats next.

Tatopoulos explains that:

“He is not driving a Formula 1 car, he’s driving a tank that is very sexy looking,” He adds. “Batman is rougher, tougher, and grungier. So everything is rough: the weapons, the suit and the car.”

Tatopoulos goes on further to say:

“There are machine guns mounted on the front. When you first see the Batmobile, it is being fixed. It is not – boom! – coming out of the garage brand new. It is scratched, damaged.”


With all that being said, it makes you wonder what exactly DC has planned for the Justice League. Director Zack Snyder even mentioned that they originally had a plan for the Justice League, and all the other movies are just there to set that up.

Snyder went on further to mention that the DCCU is like a sandbox that has boundaries, but everyone is able to play in that sandbox. In other words other directors of DC properties will have room to play with the style and tone of their perspective projects, but will still need to be mindful of what the overall goal is for DC and the Justice League.

I mean come on, he brought the curl back!!

The Iron Claw – Raw and Emotional



The Iron Claw tells the story of the Von Erich family, a wrestling dynasty made up of 4 brothers. Kevin Von Erich played by Zac Efron (High school Musical, The Greatest Showman), Kerry Von Erich played by Jeremy Allen White (The Bear), David Von Erich played by Harris Dickinson (Triangle of Sadness), Mike Von Erich played by Stanley Simons and the head of the family, the father Fritz Von Erich played by Holt Mcallany (MindHunter).

The story centres around the bond the brothers have, and the expectations set by their wrestling loving father. The film tackles a variety of themes throughout, but the main one being that of living up to a fathers expectations and the how to process the demons we create.

The film is amazing; from the cinematography, to the performances on screen, the wrestling feels so real and you really feel the intensity of the ring during the fights. Each of the brothers have really put the work in, to give a very convincing physical performance.

For me, the standouts have to be Zac Efron and Jeremy Allen White. Gone is Troy Bolton, Efron in this film in unrecognisable. His acting ability, holding and commanding every scene he is in with a harrowing intensity. Efron delivers a career defining performance in this film, not just from his physical performance but from his emotional delivery in the more hard hitting scenes. I never thought Zac Efron would make me ugly cry in a cinema, but he’s done it. He also proves to be one of the best working actors we have currently, portraying the expectations set upon him as the eldest brother and the emotional and mental toll that it puts on an individual.

Whites performance as well, has that flair we have come to know so well, from his performance as Carmmy on The Bear, with his overall optimism shattered by the end of the film.

The pacing and direction given by Sean Durkin in this is fantastic. It grips you from start to finish, lingering on characters for slightly longer than you would like. To feel the emotion that is being portayed on the screen is amazing to see, I like how he tells a story and a story as tough and as harrowing as this one. I couldn’t think of a better person to be behind the camera for this film. The choice he makes towards the end of the movie for a particular scene, will have even the most stoic amongst you crying, due to the build of the bond these brothers have throughout the movie. This particular scene was one of the most beautiful I have seen in cinema for a long time.

The cast outside of Efron and White are fantastic as well, everyone is giving 100 percent to the characters they are portraying. The fact it is all based on true events makes their performances that much better. It’s an emotional ride through a world which we know very little about outside the glitz and glamour of the WWE, it’s a shame that this film may miss out of the Oscar buzz because it is truly an Oscar worthy film, with a Best Actor performance given by Zac Efron.

You need to see this film, one of the most harrowing and emotional sports films I have ever seen.

The Marvels Going Higher, Further, Faster!



The Marvels (Marvel Studios)


Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau.

Movie Review (no spoilers)

Exceptional performance by Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris and Iman Vellani as Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel respectively. Samuel L. Jackson is back with a fury as Nick Fury and bringing the much-needed energy and comic relief as usual.

I highly encourage watching the following Marvel movies and TV series in order to thoroughly prepare for The Marvels.

  1. Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
  2. Captain Marvel (2019)
  3. Avengers: Endgame (2019)
  4. WandaVision (2021)
  5. Ms. Marvel (2022)
  6. Secret Invasion (2023)

The Marvels’ storyline picks up right after each of the main stars’ respective storylines and manages to combine their story arc into a unique and marvelous manner, keeping it consistent with some of the current events within the broad Marvel Cinematic Universe and developing our heroes from individual stars into a team of superstars. The costumes are aesthetically pleasing.

Zawe Ashton plays the part of Dar-Benn, the antagonist in The Marvels. I would have loved to see more of her character’s backstory and hope that we get to see more backgrounds being unpacked either through Marvel TV Series or even an television special.

The movie’s runtime is 105 minutes, making it the shortest Marvel movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The story felt a little bit rushed, considering a dangerous mission is underway to prevent world-level ramifications but no-time is wasted to deliver yet another masterpiece in the cinematic universe.

The story delivers a few unique twists, lots of humor and a few surprises. The movie definitely contains something for everyone, young and old, and I encourage you to take the whole family to experience The Marvels.

Teyonah Parris as Captain Monica Rambeau (Marvel Studios)

The Marvels is a story that keeps the golden thread, which is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and still manages to peak higher, further and faster into the multiversal trajectory.

The trailer doesn’t spoil much, but as always, a secret awaits for those who eagerly pay attention to the Marvel’s trailers. My only worry is that usually key spoilers tend to emerge in the week following the release of the movie in the forms of updated sneak peaks and mini-trailers.

There is a mid-credits scene that you don’t want to miss, but no post-credits scene.

I rate this movie 4 out of 5. Really excited to see what the future holds for Captain Marvel.

Watch at a cinema near you!
