Column: Whether the DC Universe Should Start Over After 'Suicide Squad'

 

I’ve written and rewritten this column about 10 times, and I keep coming back to the same conclusion -- we deserve better.

I was extremely excited about "Suicide Squad," had faith in director David Ayer, and taking things even further back to this past December, penned a column on how 2016 could be the best year for superhero movies yet. After "Batman v Superman" and now "Squad," I believe I was wrong ... READ MORE

The Real 'Spotlight': Meet Team That Inspired the Oscar-Winning Film

 

It’s a little after 3 p.m. on a Wednesday as a clock ticks on the far wall of a dimly lit office off Morrissey Boulevard in Boston.

The room is a mess, it smells like mildew and there are old, yellowed newspapers everywhere sprawled out on rickety desks and the dirty floor. But there’s something else in this unassuming room that can’t be more than 400 to 500 square feet in size -- there’s history, and lots of it ... READ MORE

Why are Batman and Superman fighting in 'Dawn of Justice' and other Burning Questions Answered

 

After seeing "Batman v Superman" earlier this week, even I had a lot of questions -- and I've followed Marvel and DC Comics for years. There's a lot to take in and many moving parts that will certainly confuse someone who isn't a comic expert.

I invited a friend -- who has dabbled in some Marvel movies like "Iron Man," but really wasn't up on the canon that is Batman and Superman -- to see the film Thursday night for the first official showing at 6 p.m. Yep, it was going to be a long night for both of us -- I assumed she would have a ton of questions and I would be the one answering.

Profile: John Cena Talks ESPYS, His 'Accidental' Career and When to Retire

 

John Cena leans over and caresses his grande Starbucks coffee with both hands like it's the WWE Heavyweight Championship belt. For a man who has won more than 20 titles in his 14 years in pro wrestling, this is saying a lot, but at this very moment, caffeine is worth its weight in gold.

After that, it's off to Tokyo for a match, then back to the States for "Monday Night Raw." Such is life for wrestling's biggest draw.
