C2E2 Day Two!!!

Day two was another day of excitement. The place was jammed packed,and had a record total of people for the con. The entire day was very shoulder to shoulder, but there were so many more crazy cosplayers for Saturday. There was even a DJ booth were cosplayers gathered and danced around like crazy. 

I started a little bit more of my comic book hunt Saturday, but sadly did not get very lucky in my searches. I was looking for the comic Warewolf by Night #32 (First appearance of Moon Knight) for my dad because of a bet we made years ago.  The context of the bet was I bet him that the Cubs would not win a world series in the next 5 years (Bet made in 2013)… If I win he owed me Amazing Spider-Man #13 (First Appearance of Mysterio). Since he won though… I owe him Warewolf by Night #32… I wanted to make sure to find him a high enough grade book, so it was a lot of fun going on the hunt for this book. Sadly I only found copies around a 7.0, 8.0 at best… Where I’m looking for a 9.2+, so there goes about 1200$… I’m sure I will acquire this book soon enough hopefully at Wizard World in August! 

All around I was shocked that there were not a lot of comic book vendors. This was probably the least I’ve seen at any con. The amounts of artists and little toys and statues at this con was overwhelming. All were incredible but I wish there were many more comic vendors! Hopefully you had a good time at C2E2 if you also had the privilege to go!

No More Batman…?

There has been a lot of worry following the DC Universe lately… After the poor response from Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad, people are starting to lose hope when it comes to the DCU. Even with the scepticism people are still getting excited for the upcoming Wonder Woman and Justice League films. There has been one more movie that a lot of comic book fans have been very excited for. That is the stand alone Batman film that Ben Affleck would take the role again as the caped crusader.

There has been drama filling the air of Gotham City’s finest. At one point Ben Affleck was set to star and co-direct the upcoming Batman film, but he backed out of that position to just star. With all the rumors floating around the skies there is even a chance we might not get a Batman film with Ben Affleck… Instead of cancelling the film, or going forward with the project, they have decided to delay the movie. We are not sure how to take this… Wether to be happy the film was  not cancelled, or upset that the rumors are looking to be true that their is complications.

Alex Gilyadov states in his article DC WANTS TO FILL THE BATMAN SLOT WITH ANOTHER FILM

According to Variety’s Justin Kroll, the studios are looking to fast-track one of five movies — The Flash, Dark Universe, Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens, or Green Lantern Corps. “

We may not be graced with a new Batman saga, but at least we are getting to see something in the place of Batman. Which movie do you hope DCU decides to push forward and make? Let us know @TheNerdChambers which movie you want!
