Marvel Comics and DC Comics are the biggest and most iconic companies in the comic industry.

As the homes to superheroes like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor, these two comic giants pretty much rule the world and hearts of fanboys and fangirls everywhere! However, it is definitely time the respective heroes from both companies meet on The Big Screen, and apparently the cast for the upcoming Justice League film are “All In” for it!

The cast of Justice League is game to collide worlds with their Marvel counterparts. Amidst the heated debate online (and in real life) among fans regarding which comic book films are better, the DC Films actors are not opposed to the idea of coming together with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a project realizing what a great opportunity it would be to see everyone’s favorite superheroes interact on the big screen.

As comic book movies dominate Hollywood, fans are continuously treated to superhero films from several film studios, but arguably on top of the hierarchy are Marvel and DC offerings. The two companies have had a long-standing rivalry from their days of producing prints and that competition appears to have spilled on the big screen – at least according to fans. The actors and even the company execs (particularly Marvel’s Kevin Feige and DC’s Geoff Johns), however, apparently don’t have any beef with each other, as once again proved by the cast of Justice League open to an MCU crossover.

In a new interview with NewsAsia (check it out above), the ensemble was asked about their thoughts about the aforementioned rivalry and possibly getting together with the Avengers and some of their cohorts. While Ben Affleck and Ray Fisher are a little bit careful with their words, the rest is pumped up with the idea specifically, Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa, who immediately let his imagination run wild saying:

“I would love to be [in a crossover,]” Momoa said. “Hell yeah! I mean like, Hemsworth, I love him. It’s like, to be next to Thor, or to be next to the Hulk. It’s like ‘oh, I’m going to take you out on the water and drown your ass.’”

Cavill, however, poses an interesting point: “It’s been done in comic books and I think once stories start to run out or people feel like they’ve seen it all before, yeah, I think there’s something there in the future,” he said, which makes a lot of sense. At one point, the genre would feel a bit repetitive that film studios would feel the need to shake things up to keep fans invested and what better way to do it than bring all these heroes together for the first time on the big screen? Surely, it would give us the same thrill that we’ve had when we first saw the Avengers or in a few weeks, the Justice League come to life in a theater — just bigger and more impactful. Probably easier said than done, with all the business dealings that everyone involved has to sort out, but it’s not really a bad thing to will it to fruition.

Marvel and DC have yet to collide on The Big Screen, but in the comics the two company’s respective heroes went toe to toe in April and May of 1996! Fans were able to vote on the outcomes of battles between heroes like Superman and Hulk, Batman and Captain America, Thor and Shazam, Storm and Wonder Woman, and even Catwoman and Elektra. Marvel narrowly won from the crossover. Still, before Marvel and DC talk about any crossover, we need the former to sit at the table with Fox and reclaim the X-Men and Fantastic Four! Seeing Black Panther and Storm on the Big Screen together is a must!

“The message is loud and clear,” Jeff Fowler tweeted Thursday. “You aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be.”

Fowler, a visual effects artist who’s making his directorial debut with the “Sonic” film, included the hashtag #gottafixfast.

Social media users complained about the CGI look of the titular hero, with the character’s human-style teeth drawing the most flak. Video game blog Kotaku compiled some of the most entertaining reactions.

Fowler did not specify what changes are in store for the film, which is scheduled to hit theaters on November 8.

We have to say Sonic’s appearance in the film is lackluster to say the least, we are looking forward to seeing what changes–and we hope they are sweeping–are made! What do you guys think about Sonic and his first movie trailer? Leave your thoughts in the comments’ section below!

us movie opening weekend

Let’s lay out some pretty amazing facts about Us’ $70 million weekend. That is the highest opening ever for an original “R”-rated film. The 11 “R” films to open higher were either sequels or adapted from popular books. Us is also the biggest opening ever for an original live-action film in March and an original horror film in any month. Only It and last year’s Halloween opener higher. But…can it outgross Get Out‘s $176 million?

Us has already doubled Get Out’s $33.4 million opening. A good start indeed. It is the 142nd film to open with $65 million or more. Of those previous 141 films, do you know how many failed to reach the $176 million earned by Get Out? Six. (Fifty Shades of Grey, Halloween 2018, Fast and FuriousQuantum of Solace,X-Men: Apocalypse2012). That is already 95.7% in favor of Us besting Get Out’s total. The number to watch next week when Dumbo knocks Us back to second is whether its second weekend is over or under $28 million.

We are clapping all the way to the bank for Jordan Peele! Yet again, movie trackers are bad at predicting what will be a hit or not. Social media indicated just what a buzz this film had around it, thus we are not surprised! What do you guys think of Us? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
