The Return of Deadpool

Posted: February 19, 2016 in Comics, JD Hardin, Movies

By: JD Hardin

Taking the world by storm is ever witty, completely insane, totally deranged Deadpool and his alter-ego Wade Wilson. For those of you who haven’t seen it, it is rated R.

DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN

Seriously, this is a very vulgar movie at some points. I’m sure if you take your kids, they will exhibit extreme disgust or shock at the footage on the screen in front of them. Which in turn, will cause you quite a large amount of panic. Not to mention, disturbing everyone in the theater in the process. So, hire a sitter.

Keep reading of spoilers.

Deadpool opened Friday and has smashed records for R-rated movies. With an opening weekend gross of $134 million, Fox has moved ahead and confirmed a sequel. This, of course, sent fans into a tizzy. If you haven’t seen Deadpool, you are definitely missing out. Anyway, Deadpool and Cable #3 is out, as is Batman/TMNT#1 and #2 second printings. Harley Quinn #25 will have Harley squaring off with Mista J himself (this is going to be good). In Superman: American Alien #4, Clark travels to Metropolis and finds himself poised to interview Lex Luthor, Oliver Queen, and Bruce Wayne, until competition comes calling. I Hate Fairyland stomps through with issue five this week. The Nerdery’s 2015 Writer of the Year, Matt Hawkins delivers The Tithe #8 and Symmetry #3 (keep a close eye on our YouTube for a review this Sunday). Bill and Ted, and Godzilla all are in hell this week as well. Lucifer Morningstar graces us with his presence via Vertigo Publishing. The point, as always, is no matter what you’re into, there’s a comic out there just for you.

Supergirl Is Gonna Flash Us

So, DCTV is getting some HUGE news today.

“The Flash” and “Supergirl” executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement “We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making ‘Supergirl’ – ‘The Flash’ and ‘Supergirl’ are teaming up!” “We want to thank Grant Gustin for making the time to come visit (on top of his already immense workload) and all of the folks at CBS, The CW, Warner Bros. and DC for working this out. And finally, thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support.”

Like many others, I watched the original run of the X Files from 1993 to 2002. The brief introduction that summed up that time frame at the beginning of episode one, “My Struggle”, was a nice refresher. It reminded the viewer of the legacy that the X Files left behind and swept the rather mediocre final seasons under the rug.After meeting the stars of the show, we are introduced to Tad O’Malley (Joe McHale). He is bringing the band back together to revisit an old case, a young woman who was repeatedly abducted by aliens and now wants to have her story scientifically validated and broadcast. We are lead to believe that we are going to explore the grand conspiracy from the first series, just to have that idea turned completely around. The writers went hard and fast in the right direction. They hammered in right where they never went in the original series, the dark and disgusting turn the country took right after September 11, 2001. It’s not a surprise that Chris Carter’s shows (The X Files, Millennium, and The Lone Gunmen) withered in post 9/11 America as their stories revolved around the idea that we could not trust our government. That ran counter to the attitude of the nation at the time, when all we wanted was to trust Uncle Sam and lick our red, white and blue wounds. Do not read the reviews to find out if you should watch the X Files reboot. Watch it, and make up your mind. The band is back together, writing and acting talent alike.
