Sidekicked Issue #1 – Are DC movie choices Suicidal?

May 6, 2015 at 12:00 pm

Disney and Marvel have been rocking the Superhero Movie scene for several years now. A combination of strong creators, A-list actors, and connected movie plots has created a formula for financial success. Now DC wants a piece of the pie, and it looks like they are going to use a similar production model. But while Marvel’s Phase One included many of their biggest characters, DC has chosen to hold back a new solo Batman film and use Suicide Squad as one of their opening titles. Suicide Squad maybe a popular comic book series, but can a movie adaption work for DC early in their game plan? Vincent and David break down if this team of bad guys can make a good film.

David Gimnich

David is a cool human and the co-host of the Sidekicked Podcast with Vincent Powell! He hates long walks on the beach, but only because there is so much sand. He knows more about Marvel than DC. He is a feminist, regardless of the fact that he is a guy. You haven't heard of him, well he's a big deal in Latveria.

Vincent Powell

He's a mean, lean, nerding machine. A comic book reader since he was 6 years old, Vincent has developed a true passion for the inner-workings of what makes comics great. He has now been drafted by the Uncanny Pome Magazine to unleash his thoughts and views. Along with his partner, David, the two of them analyze the comic book industry for a new generation of fans.
