In case you've been away from the internet for a week or more, and I highly doubt that, you've had to do already noticed the big buzz around the latest (Teen) Titans TV series trailer featuring the particularly infamous quote heard 'round the world, "Fuck Batman."
So yeah, (Teen) Titans is apparently getting the Riverdale treatment and will be edgy AF considering the demographic.
Hey, I don't have a problem with it. Whatever, I may, or may not watch it, but at least the show's already doing its job in generating buzz a head of the premiere.
Here's an online article that helps round up most of the popular jokes and memes dedicated to this new Bat-Phenomenon now:
You just know if this was back during the Adam West Batman show and Dick had said that to Batman, Bruce would've whipped out the ol' industry bat-sized Bat-soap for the boy to chomp on......after getting spanked......probably.....
And it looks like Dick's not the only Bat-Family member to break bad......
If this isn't a PSA I don't know what else is......
Also in the news, director James Gunn is the latest celeb to get in deep shit for some bad stuff he said, which led to Disney shit-canning his ass off Guardians of the Galaxy.
Thanks to the beauty of the internet we nice little round up of old tweets Gunn posted where he claims he was trying to be provocatively funny and offensive, all at the same time.
Here's just a small sample of what he tweeted out:
Yeah, probably not a good idea to ever joke about pedophilia like that, especially if you're a celeb who's constantly in the public eye.
Now apparently even though these are old tweets from around 2012 and earlier, before the first Guardians' movie, someone at Disney and Marvel just had to have known this shit was out there floating around to be discovered right?
Surely he would've and in fact HAD told his respective bosses about those......right? I guess not.
I will say this about Gunn, he the was the best thing to happen to the Guardians' franchise, and now I'm curious who'll replace him. It's not going to be easy, especially since a familiar and well-working theme and tone has already been established. Then again, if Gamora's staying dead, as the rumors are saying, maybe a new change of direction will better reflect the changes that were caused by Infinity War.
