SN: Fan Service – “Star Wars,” “Batman vs. Superman,” and “Suicide Squad” explode out of Comic-Con
Perhaps the greatest thing to come out of this year’s Comic-Con was the behind the scenes look of “Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens.” You’d have to be drowning in cynicism to say that the most recent trailer didn’t awaken some part of the inner child in you.
Now we have a solid look at what Abrams is trying to accomplish. Yes “Star Wars” may eventually become an exhausted franchise with spin-offs and sequels already planned. But for now with a strong merging of practical effects and motion capture effects, this behind-the-scenes look continues to bring smiles to fans faces.
Hit “Continue Reading” for Batman vs. Superman and Suicide Squad.
Are you still skeptical?
The thing that vaulted Disney’s Marvel franchise into pop culture was the critical and financial success of “Iron Man.” “Man of Steel” didn’t quite stir up the same buzz, but the lone existence of “Batman vs. Superman” tells us that renditions of these superheroes will be around for a long time.
Comic-book icons are todays modern myths, and we will see both serious and wacky interpretations of them probably till the end of time.
Many publications are declaring “Suicide Squad” the most impressive presentation of Comic-Con. It isn’t anything bold for a production company to finance a comic-book adaptation right now, especially with the detailed success of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” a financial success off a franchise most people had never heard of.
“Suicide Squad” looks as crazy as it has always sounded. After “Fury,” it will be interesting to see director David Ayer try his hands at material that warrants some stylistic direction. His canvas has never been larger.
