Going Under The Sea With DC..

Arthur Curry has been the butt of jokes for a very long time and the idea of an actual “Aquaman” movie was the thing of punchlines on seasons of “Entourage.” It’s hard to see any franchise hopes from the Justice League member that talks to fish, but in the right hand, an “Aquaman” movie can possibly win at the difficult game of Hollywood JENGA.

At the recent San Diego Comic Con, the world received its first look at DC Universe’s “Aquaman”..

This is one of those moments where saying, “This is not your father’s Aquaman” would not deserve a swift punch to the face and years of scorn from your friends.

James Wan is at the helm of this film and, from the trailer, things are looking great. The assembled cast and crew have constructed a movie that seems to move past DC’s past issues, such as the “talk bubbles” from the “Justice League” and they have unlocked a world that could only be shown in this modern age of filmmaking.

It could be easy to start naming off the cast, but the names speak for themselves and the trailer raises that volume to eleven. The visuals of this trailer give this creation the possibility of something more than blonde hair and an orange shirt. The views of Atlantis are stunning and gives viewers a chance to be a part of this unique DC world.

Warner Brothers and DC should be looking at this movie with high hopes. The future of DC movies has seemed to become scrambled, it is not a mess, but the focus seems to be misguided slightly. “Aquaman” will hopefully return DC to a track that “Wonder Woman” has started and focus on the league that brought them into the theaters.

AQUAMAN Will Be In Theaters On December 21st

The League Of DC Comes Together..

 The Justice League have assembled.. sorry they have united in the newest trailer for the upcoming blockbuster for the DC cinematic universe. Since last year’s San Diego Comic Con, we have been treated to full blown trailers and other clips, but this is our chance to see this team in full tilt boogie level action.

This preview does the job of every good trailer and makes you want more, but with the speed bumps that the DC Universe has seen, the doubts are in the water and I will not add to it. This trailer is an excellent piece that gives you the right taste of everyone and reveals more of the Justice League team that you might have been wondering about. I know that I am not alone with the thought of Aquaman stealing this movie and owning every scene he is in.

 As the DC promotion train picks up stream, the hopes for Justice League can only grow and November can’t get here quick enough. There is the possible question out there of DC ability to finally reach MARVEL’s cinematic levels in the theaters, but those question should finally be ignored and DC can focus on their own film legacy.

During Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2016 Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Convention, the guys from Nowhere crossed paths with a friend of con’s past and caught up with Taz.

The last time the team had crossed paths with Taz was at the 2014 Days of the Dead Convention, during the conventions Saturday morning cartoon screening and a friendship was formed through a alcohol charged commentary.

Since that chance meeting, we have been looking for a chance to cross paths with Taz and that opportunity came at this year’s Los Angeles Comic Con. There wasn’t a cartoon screening to riff our way through, but Taz and I had a great conversation about his return to the states. Also, the conversation delves into Taz’s musical life and his work with the band “As Flesh Decays” (CLICK HERE for As Flesh Decays EP “SINISTER”)

COMIC CON 2016- JUSTICE LEAGUE TRAILER!

The San Diego Comic Con has had a history of shocking first looks and this year that tradition continue, thanks to the creative minds of the DC Universe. During the Saturday panels, DC unleashed a special trailer for the first part of the “Justice League” franchise. This was not just a teaser trailer, it was a full blown trailer…

“Justice League” began principal photography in April of this year and we now have a trailer, there are dozens of question that could be asked and I could care less about the answers. This trailer explodes the universe that was teased in “Dawn Of Justice” and definitely takes a tone shift that was set up with Batman v Superman, but I do not think this is aftermath of that movie’s mixed reviews.

“Dawn Of Justice” and “Justice League” are different worlds to a bigger universe, just like the individual MARVEL movie had a different view compared to the assembled Avengers movies. “Justice League” has more pressure on it compared to the first Avengers movie, most people will want to pull this movie in multiple direction to fit into the current mold and that would be a mistake. DC and Warner Bros. need to stay focused on their universe, so the fans can have a unique world that they deserve.

COMIC CON 2016- A NEW LOOK AT WONDER WOMAN..

The Comic Con party rages in San Diego and DC has brought a legendary Amazonian princess to the event, as new trailer and poster for the upcoming movie “Wonder Woman” was released onto the world.

After our first exposure to Diana Prince in “Dawn Of Justice”, most comic book fans were starting to feel that the stars might have finally aligned and this trailer proves it. The Wonder Woman film has been in development and pre-production hell for years, but the problem could have been a simple missing piece to the puzzle and that piece seems to be Gal Gadot.

Gadot entered the DC universe as somewhat of an unknown and quickly made an impact, as shown through her stellar reviews in the lukewarm “Batman v Superman” critical reactions. This trailer has shown that “Wonder Woman” belongs in the major leagues of super hero blockbusters.

Wonder Woman Comes To Theater Summer 2017

NowhereCalifornia.com Reaches Its First Year..

365_zps32stbaw6

(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)

It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.

One Bad Day. One Great Movie..Coming Soon.

One bad day. It just takes one bad day to turn the sanest mortal into the darkest of souls and just one bad day is the lynch pin behind one of most infamous DC graphic novels, “The Killing Joke”. This graphic novel is held in high regards in most comic book circles and will be making its animated film debut in a few short weeks.

“The Killing Joke” will be released digitally on July 23,2016 and Blu-Ray/Dvd on August 2. This film will break new ground for the popular DC animated movie series, as “The Killing Joke” will be rated R. That rating is a relief to many, as any lower rating would be a disservice to the legacy of this story.

As you can tell quickly from the trailer, the legacy of this story is well protect in many ways and two of those reasons come in the form of the voice talents. The men that are synonymous with this classic rivalry, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill will headline this film.

A reminder, if you’re a fan of the original graphic novel or you’re a fan of the DC animated universe, this is an entry that should not be miss digitally on July 23 and on August 2 in the Blu-Ray/Dvd formats. Also, in the Blu-Ray/Dvd format, watch for a special deluxe edition and the limited edition Joker figure that will be included.

Gotham Has A New Commissioner..

J.K. Simmons has hung up his Daily Bugle Press Credentials and picked up the Commissioner’s badge of the Gotham Police Department, as Simmons has signed on to play Commissioner Gorden in the upcoming Justice League films.

As we are a few weeks away from the “Dawn Of Justice”, there is little to no chance of seeing Simmons step into commissioner’s office and Simmons will probably sit out the battle of the world’s finest. This down time will be short lived, as part 1 of the Justice League films will begin production next month and will hit theaters Nov.17,2017.

Now, that we know Simmons’ position in the “Justice League” world, where does this leave Simmons and Gorden in the growing DC universe? Will we see Simmons in the upcoming solo Affleck/Batman movies?

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

The team behind Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice have released a new clip to the world and this scene is shocking to say the least..

There is a lot that could be read in this clip and, on the other hand, there is a lot that is not said. Is this a delusion of kryptonian grandeur or a Gotham nightmare or is this all of the above in a twisted reality?

Tell us your thoughts and don’t forget to check out Jimmy Kimmel Live this Wednesday for the world debut of the new Dawn Of Justice trailer.
