Episode # 227: Better Than BvS pt I - Superman Doomsday
As superheroes are in the driver's seat for modern movie theater goers, so has the cartoon world reached a Renaissance in legitimacy for movie and series format. Special effects have reached a near zenith where you'd expect a live-action version to be the best experience. Is it though? Over the next 2 episodes, Matt is here to tell you the answer is no.
Doomsday appeared in an interesting time slot: before Iron Man & Dark Knight melted our child brains & created the superhero film series market, the need for capes & fancy suits had slept for almost 2 decades. Our Sidelined Superheroes episode looked at the lack of lasting hype for Batman Begins in 2005. Both DC titans had been dormant since the 90's except for tv, and cartoons are for kids, right? Not anymore...
Next episode we'll do both parts of The Dark Knight Returns from 2012!
