DC is at it again. On the tail of the incredible He-Man/Thundercats, and the riveting Justice League/Power Rangers, the power house drops four more crossovers; Adam Strange/Future Quest, Booster Gold/The Flintstones, Green Lantern/Space Ghost, and the Suicide Squad/The Banana Splits. Watch out for these titles, they’re going to be HOT!!! Not to mention the long awaited DKIII #8.

Comics are one of those things that will spend weeks being pretty good, and then on week will drop a figurative piano of greatness on your head. Call this piano week. JLA V Power Rangers, JLA Rebirth #1, three new true believers issues, Hal Jordan, Clark Kent, Jessica Jones, Kingpin and top it all off with Moonshine, and that’s a helluva week.

Buckle up kiddos, it’s going to be an awesome week.

Anyway, IT’S TIME TO RAID THE RACKS!!!

So far, anything touched by DC on the silver screen has done fantastic in the box office. But according to the website Rotten Tomatoes, they can’t do anything right. The critic aggregator site’s critics claim that Rotten Tomatoes shows a bias in favor of Marvel films. David Ayer even went so far as to send out a (now deleted) tweet outright accusing critics of taking bribes to judge DCEU films more harshly. He has since tweeted a retraction of that statement but, he seems to have struck a nerve with the fan community.

When I first caught wind of this nasty rumor, I thought it was nothing more than smoke. I thought to myself, “There’s no way a site that big would risk everything on something like that.” But, just like the guy I am, I did my due diligence and found some disturbing evidence to support the conspiracy theorists. With an average fan rating and critic rating difference of a whopping 41%, I found it a little disturbing. I expected it to be a little bit closer than that. With the highest rated DC film to be Man Of Steel at a, still rotten, 55%, and Suicide Squad garnering a 98% fan rating, things do seem off. I didn’t understand how far off until I saw the ratings for Marvel.

With Suicide Squad releasing “Officially” Friday (unofficially Thursday), the press is swarming with rumors and accusations of what all those re-shoots actually entailed.

Recently Business Insider’s Jason Guerrasio had a sit-down with Captain Boomerang himself, Jai Courtney, and discussed the actual nature of the reshoots.

Guerrasio: How much reshooting was there? Set the record straight.

Courtney: I was a little pissed off by all the reports. The rumors around us having to inject levity into it and all this shit. It was silly because the movie already had all that. All we did was shoot a big action sequence that was changing the shape of another one we had already shot.

Guerrasio: The ending?

Courtney: Yeah. We were just doing stuff with Enchantress. We did things that introduced stuff earlier that they wanted to get rid of basically. Changing her ability to engage with the squad, they enhanced that interaction. It was normal. It was strengthening the ending. The original [ending] we shot was dope, it was just adding to it, not doing an alternative.

Guerrasio: So when you see this movie, you like it? There’s no feeling that they screwed it up in post?

Courtney: I fucking love this movie. It’s great to see it all come together. I love that about filmmaking and getting to see everyone else that you don’t necessarily engage with on set everyday and getting them to showcase their talents. Whether it’s effects, music, the edit, the rhythm of a film is driven by that, so it’s cool to see it come together. It’s great to be standing in front of something you’re genuinely proud of.

DC continues it’s unraveling of their universe with Rebirth and it would seem, for the most part, Civil War II is in a cease fire this week with only three tie-ins releasing. Meanwhile, IDW continues to take a page out of DC’s book with an incredible amount of releases. This week’s releases are rather tame compared to normal, a few hot titles but overall it’s pretty quiet. Let’s change that!

Don’t forget to get your tickets to Suicide Squad!! You can join Toxic City Comics for a private screening at Star Cinema Grill Baybrook tomorrow night at 9:30! Get your tickets at Toxic City for $12!!!
