Tonight, neither of the big two is spared, as DC Universe has given us every possible sign that it has no intention of improving, that it is little more than a scam, and that their mistaken belief that shooting in North Carolina would net them $30 Million. Sadly, they ONLY got 16.3 million, which is actually 4.3 million more than North Carolina ever gives anyone, ever. But that’s why Swamp Thing was abruptly cut short a few weeks ago, why production was halted, and why today, 6 days after the well-received series premiere, Swamp Thing was cancelled.
So was my membership in DC Universe, which will not renew. What a pathetic reason to punish your cast, crew, and audience! Hi, remember us idiots who signed up for this garbage service? Yeah, we’re still here, but not for long.
The greedy idiots behind DC Universe are fortunate that X-Men: Dark Phoenix has been released, and is so amazingly terrible on so many levels that it’s dominating the headlines.I have spoken with several people who worked on the film, as well as people who attended test screenings. I also went to several movies which featured the trailer for Dark Phoenix, and knew that the audience bursting out laughing at the most serious sequences was a bad sign. Even worse than the TV ads, which actually, literally, showed every single important story beat and plot detail. The movie itself, then, is only necessary if one wants to see a longer, more pointless version of this uncreative remake of X-Men: The Last Stand.
