Wow, prepare to cry at this trailer. The movie Boy Erased is based on the book Boy Erased: A Memoir which is an memoir based on writer Garrard Conley, the son of a Baptist pastor. In the movie as in the book, Garrard writes about himself when was 19 years old and asked to either leave his family, friends, and faith or go through conversion therapy for his sexuality. This movie stars Lucas Hedges as Garrard, Nicole Kidman as his mother and Russell Crowe as his father.


Just the music alone make me start to tear up while watching this trailer. I can only imagine watching the full movie in theaters. Boy Erased is in theaters on November 2, 2018.


What?! There’s a new Disney XD animated series of shorts with Squirrel Girl, Patriot (where the hell has he been in the comics), Spider-Gwen (Ghost-Spider, because she can’t go by her real name), Ms. Marvel and Quake (I don’t know much about her)?! Hell’s yeah! These shorts are set to premiere on Disney XD on August 13, 2018. There is obviously a huge fun factor involved in this series with the seriousness being toned down a bit, but not so much that there can still be huge adventures that is entertaining to watch, especially with the likelihood that other heroes such as Captain Marvel may and probably will appear.


Cast:
Dove Cameron — Gwen Stacy/Ghost-Spider
Kathleen Khavari – Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel
Kamil McFadden – Rayshaun Lucas/Patriot
Chloe Bennet – Daisy Johnson/Quake
Milana Vayntrub – Doreen Green/Squirrel Girl


Holy Batsticks! According to Variety, one of DC Comics highest profile LGBT characters in the DC Universe may get her own TV show after her debut within the Arrowverse next fall. Caroline Dries is the writer for the project and has been credited with The Vampire Diaries, Melrose Place, and Smallville. In the comic book world, Batwoman’s alter ego, Kate Kane is a lesbian who has been in a relationships with Renee Montoya and Maggie Sawyer. She also is the cousin to Bruce Wayne. She comes from a military background following in the footsteps of her father. She has a lot of her personal issues that translates to her vigilante status and makes for a great character to develop on screen.


Batwoman will first appear in the big crossover event within the Arrowverse this fall. The CW did a wonderful job last season with the Cross Over on Earth X story that featured all of the Arrowverse series together in a four part story and I have high hopes for the next crossover this coming season. How will Batwoman be introduced without her famous cousin, Batman not being in the equation? That should be interesting as the Green Arrow and others have already mentioned Gotham City and Bruce Wayne but all in passing and nothing in direct tone towards Batman. So this should be interesting. What do you think about this?


Walmart has 4 exclusive DC Comic Book specials that are only available in their store. The books themselves are in the form of anthology books that have several stories from different continuities and different timelines. This review is based of off the Teen Titans comic which has four stories involved, two of which have Tim Drake and one has Conner Kent aka Superboy. This was awesome to read and some of the characters being shown have been sorely missed in current DC Comics.

It is not much of a secret that Jean-Paul Beaubier, aka Northstar, is a gay Mutant in the Marvel Universe. His story of officially coming out in 1992’s Alpha Flight #106 was not a subtle story and quite emotional to read. The issue involves a tear jerker plot with the Canadian superhero finding an baby in a trash can that is HIV positive and only has a short while to live. This coincides with another retired superhero who’s own experience with AIDS causes him to attack out of anger and depression. Check out my thoughts on this issue in the attached video, but be warned, major spoilers ahead.

This image (below) was posted by Rae Geiger, a character designer on the Netflix She-Ra series. I know a lot fans are on the fence about the new look while many love and many others hate this design. Personally, I will wait until I see the series. I think this is a huge departure from the original series in both premise and visualization however change is not always a bad thing. What do you think of this so far?


This is it, the epic conclusion to the Flash War in Flash #50 and holy hell, there was such a huge surprise at the end of this series. It is potentially going to link to much bigger stories down the line that could incorporate other heroes that have been sorely missing in the DC Universe. Check out my thoughts in the attached video for this comic book review but be warned, MAJOR SPOILERS!

This week’s comic load is slightly different. My buddy, sidekick, and superman cutie – Cerolobo – helps out with his insights on this week’s comic book pull list. We couldn’t get to all of the comics we had a chance to read, but for his first non-spoilery comic book review, he did a great job! Check it out and let me know what you thought about the attached video.
Special note, Flash #50 came out this week and had a HUGE development that I will go into on my own in a separate video. I felt like it deserved its own video with this plot point taking place.

Anime Expo revealed a few new animations coming to Netflix in the near future. Besides getting a second season to Castlevania, we’re also getting UltraMan! Who is UltraMan? He is a superhero that fights Kaiju monsters with an array of special abilities that include size enhancements to grow as large as his adversary if necessary and he is heroic (usually). He technically never fought or teamed up with Godzilla, but there are very similar versions of both that have fought and teamed up. One famous meeting was Jet Jaguar (very UltraMan-ish) teaming up with Godzilla to fight Megalon. Netflix has been great with past animations and has an incredible version of Voltron that is currently in it’s 6th season. So I do not think we will have to worry about the cheesiness of the UltraMan in years past. This could be badass on so many levels!


It’s the third issue of the alien/human crew venturing to the depths of space and back. This issue has the Star Crossed crew coming across a group of robotic beings that are determined to collect DNA samples from each of the members in order to re-populate the universe if necessary. Check out my thoughts on this book in the attached video. This issue was written by Patrick Fillion and illustrated by Alexander.
