FIRST LOOK: Stargirl Season 2!

Hey Everyone

Paul here…

Stargirl was a pleasant surprise when it premiered on DC Universe Streaming and The CW last year. Good villains, a likable cast, above average VFX, and a healthy dose of DC Comics mythology, made Stargirl one of my favorite shows of 2020. So I’m happy to say that everything I’ve heard about Season 2, premiering August 10th on The CW, sounds very cool. After defeating the Injustice Society last season, Courtney, Pat, and rest of their newly formed JSA members, will have not one, but two Big Bads on their hands in Season 2! Both of whichwere teased in the Season 1 finale. But first, take a look at the new trailer for Stargirl Season 2 and then we can get into some other cool surprises to expect in the show’s upcoming sophomore year

Looks awesome to me! It looks like Season 2 will add JSA members like Jade, the new Green Lantern ,and Jakeem Thunder, that weird, purple living energy-thing.

Jay Garrick, The Flash of The JSA, who first appeared on The CW series The Flash will also be making an appearance this season.

With that in mind, here are a few important things to know bet] thatWithin the mythology of DC Comics, decades before The Justice League, The JSA or Justice Society of America, were the original superhero team. Gettineag their start decades before the modern day Justice League. The JSA are the elder statesmen (and women) of The DCU. The classic team roster usually consists of the original Green Lantern Alan Scott, Jay “The Flash” Garrick, Wildcat, Hourman, BlackCanary, Dr. Mid-Nite, The Sandman (Not the Neil Gaiman version, Hawkman & Hawkgirl, and Starman. The team first formed around WWII in the comics and each member age at a much slower rate then normal. As a result, almost all of th e JSA appear to be in their 50’s for early 60’s and while they’re all well past their prime, they can still operate at peak condition or beyond while in the field.

On the show things play out a little differently. First of all, though there are certain recognizable heroes and villains from DC Comics, a Justice League seems to have never taken form on this Earth. The JSA appear to be the only major superhero team to have formed in this universe. Though the series is technically apart of The Arrrowverse, Stargirl takes place on a different Earth than Arrrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. On Stargirl, The JSA and other heroes and villains have been active for decades. About 15 years in the past, most of The JSA were killed by the Injustice Society, a group of dangerous villains. In the present day, with the help of her step father and former JSA memberPat (Luke Wilson), Courtney Whitmore becomes Stargirl and begins to reform The JSA with a new generation of heroes.

From what we see in the trailer, it looks like the next generation of The JSA will only be expanding their roster. They’ll need all the help they can get while dealing with multiple major threats on the horizon. Both were teased in the final moments of the Season 1 finale.

First, as shown in the trailer, is the classic DC villain The Shade. He’s immortal and he can control living shadow. What makes The Shade interesting is that while he’s a serious threat, who you fuck with at your own peril, he has honor. He lives by a code.

He’s definitely a villain, but he’s not a monster. On one or two rare occasions, he even made alliances with heroes. So it should be compelling to see how the show handles the only member of the Injustice Society, that was present the night the original JSA were slaughtered, who we haven’t met on screen yet.

A brief glimpse at The Shade from the Season 1 Finale.

The second villain the show will be introducing this year is Eclipso. This guy is no joke. He’s easily a Justice League level threat. Eclipso is an ancient alien entity who, as we saw in the Season 1 finale been trapped inside a small diamond stone (as is often the case with evil, eldritch monsters).

Eclipso feeds on the negative psychic energy of mankind. Grief, hate, anger, and sadness sustain him, so he tries to create as much suffering and chaos as possible.

Unfortunately for this young incarnation of The JSA, Eclipso is WAY out of their league, so it’ll be cool to see how they handle him on the show. So this new season of Stargirl looks like it’s shaping up to be pretty interesting, so I definitely recommend checking out Seaon 1, which you can find On Demand and Streaming.

TRAILERS OF THE WEEK: Army of The Dead & Justice Society: World War II !

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Picks For Trailers of The Week

2021 stands to be a big year for Netflix and Zack Snyder. The director is getting a mulligan from DC fans everywhere with Zack Snyder‘s Justice League premiering on HBO Max in March. In May, Snyder teams up with Netflix for his other big project this year, a zombie-heist flick, Army Of The Dead, starring Dave Bautista. Here’s the official synopsis:

After a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, a group of mercenaries takes the ultimate gamble by venturing into the quarantine zone for the greatest heist ever.

 Now, we have our first look at Army of the Dead with the new trailer below. I was sold on this movie before I even saw the trailer, to be honest. Zack Snyder directed 2004’s Dawn of The Dead, which is not only one of the best zombie movies ever made. It’s also one of the only remakes of a classic movies that lives up to and possibly even surpasses the original.  So a new movie called Army of The Dead, from the director of Dawn of The Dead, about a team of mercenaries, led by Dave Bautista, trying to rob a casino in a zombie infested Las Vegas? In the immortal words of Kevin Smith: “Fuck you. Take my money!” I am in!

Army of The Dead premieres on Netflix on 5/21/2021

Justice Society: World War II – Clip & Trailer

DC Animation has really upped their game over year and a half. Coming off of a run of strong animated films like Superman: Red Son, Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, Superman: Man of Tomorrow, and Batman: Soul of The Dragon, DC Animation has been doing their nest work in years. After coming off a series of winners, their next film, Justice Society: World War II, looks fucking awesome. It’s great because it’s a period accurate piece. When the JSA was first introduced, they were fighting Nazi’s during WWII. I think it’ll be great for fans to see the JSA (Justice Society of America) and members like The “Jay Garrick” Flash and Green “Alan Scott” Lantern, who would go on to inspire the modern incarnations, in their prime. DC Animation has also begun to move away from that in house, stock animation style of the previous, shared DC Animated Movie Universe. So the animation in this new movie stands out in a beautifully bold and dynamic way. The full trailer for Justice Society: World War II has already been released (which we posted below, if you haven’t seen it yet), but a new clip from the movie dropped this weekend, showing Wonder Woman in battle with a platoon of Nazi soldiers and it looks incredible! Take a look:

Justice Society: World War II (Full Trailer):

Justice Society: World War II is available digitally on 4/27 and on Blu-Ray/4K on 5/11
