Alita: Battle Angel is a project that has been in development for over twenty years. It was supposed to be the follow up film for James Cameron immediately following Titanic. Then, Cameron got deep into the world of Pandora with his characters from his hugely successful Avatar film, which he’s currently making four back to back sequels that will be released over the next ten years. Enter Robert Rodriguez, who has directed Desperado, Sin City, and the Spy Kids movies, to take on the long awaited project.
We reviewed Alita: Battle Angel, that’s directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by James Cameron, based on a manga series by Yukito Kishiro.

The anticipation of Detective Comics’, or D.C.’s, top tier of heroes coming together is something that just isn’t felt by fans of the comics, but also anyone who has been following the development of this project. In 2013, Zack Synder was put in charge of directing the starting point for the D.C. universe, Man of Steel. That film was a success and was followed by the even more successful, but awful, Suicide Squad. In the same year we were also given the match up comic book fans have been waiting for with the underwhelming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Though it was Wonder Woman that acted as a gleam of light for the universe. Anchored by an incredible performance by Gal Gadot, it became both a financial and critical success. Synder was hard at work on his vision of Justice League when tragedy struck him and his family with the death of his daughter. Joss Whedon, who had experience dealing with a group of heroes with the first two “The Avengers,” was brought on to finish about 20% of the film Synder had left unfinished. Then there were rumors that Whedon was specifically brought on to change the tone of the Sydner’s vision of this film and future DC films by adding the lightness and humor missing from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. So, with all that, how does a hybrid of two different styles pan out? Does it work or does it destroy the leg up Wonder Woman contributed?

Ever since I was a child, I have been a fan of the DC characters. I have spent my life reading comics, watching the cartoons, collecting the figures and collectibles, going to conventions, seeing the movies, and I’m proud of all those things no matter how much society tells me I’m a geek.
As much as I love Marvel comics and movies, DC has a special place in my heart and I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. In my opinion, Marvel has the better stories while DC has the better characters. Ever since the age of six, Superman and Batman have been my all time favorite comic book characters. Sometimes I even connect more to these characters than some actual people I’ve met in reality. I love these characters, and have loved seeing them come to the big and small screen.
