Transcription

  • Hi everyone! It's Charlie. We have a new Wonder Woman 1984 teaser to break down.
  • There's a bunch of DC news because they're not going to Comic-Con this summer.
  • No DC movies at Comic-Con. I'll explain what's up with that.
  • And there's a bunch of other DC news about them cancelling Swamp Thing I'll explain at the end of the video too.
  • So if you're brand new to the channel, be sure to subscribe to get all the easter egg videos.
  • There's still going to be a lof of trailers for everything dropping at Comic-Con
  • because so much Marvel stuff and other stuff from the TV shows is happening too.
  • But the big thing about the Wonder Woman teaser is the reason why they dropped it recently is because
  • they just wanted to show you a look for how crazy the movie is going to get.
  • Like "Look at how much colour! Look how shiny!" That's part of the reason why the movie is set during the 80s.
  • Because it was one of the most over-the-top, vain decades in American history, maybe world history too,
  • mostly American history in the context of this film.
  • But you probably recognize her crazy upgraded armour from the comics.
  • She does wear battle armour every once in a while.
  • Within the context of the actual story, though, Patty Jenkins explains that she needs the armour for one of her final boss fights during the movie.
  • There are a lot of theories about who that actually is.
  • Like, who would she need crazy armour for to fight in the movie if it's not another god?
  • But that's only for practical reasons. The metaphorical reason for including the armour is because it's the MOST decade.
  • 1984, the height of excess, height of optimism, height of vanity.
  • So, it would make sense that as America went all shiny and over the top, so does Wonder Woman with some of her outfits during the movie.
  • Also really funny -- women's shoulder pads were out of control in the 80s.
  • So -- ha ha! -- you get the joke. Of course Wonder Woman has crazy hardcore shoulder pads on her armour.
  • But the armour itself is just her Themysciran war armour.
  • Her normal outfit is already battle armour but it's only meant to be sort of a base layer of what Amazons would consider armour.
  • Like you or me or normal people walking around outside on a normal day just wearing a light jacket.
  • But as a demi-god, Wonder Woman is almost impervious to visible damage anyway, just like Superman.
  • So, for 99% of the threats that she faces, she doesn't even need armour. Her skin is the armour.
  • The only time she actually needs a suit of armour like this in the comics is when she's fighting actual gods
  • or beings as powerful as gods, like Darkseid.
  • I don't think it's a spoiler to say that Darkseid is not going to be in this movie.
  • So, it's likely that one of the final bosses of Wonder Woman 1984 is one of the other Greek gods that we haven't met yet,
  • like Hades or Apollo the sun god, which is a big rumour going around that Pedro Pascal might be playing Apollo.
  • There's a theory tying his character, who's still a bit of a mystery, to the return of Steve Trevor. He comes back to life.
  • They say that this is really Steve Trevor physically coming back from death during the movie.
  • He's not an apparition, he's not secretly Martian Manhunter masquerading as Steve Trevor, and he's not a trick of her mind.
  • So, it's not mind space Steve Trevor. It's really him, he's come back, and he's totally fish out of water just like she was during the first movie.
  • Like, "What the hell is going on? What is a mall? Why are these people dressed so funny? Why is everything so crazy?"
  • There's also supposed to be a link between Pedro Pascal's character and the Cheetah character becoming Cheetah.
  • Because she doesn't start out looking like Cheetah during the movie.
  • It's Kristen Wiig's character, who is another archaeologist, but because she's only one of the villains of the movie, and she's a tragic villain at that,
  • it seems like his character winds up taking advantage of her and drives her to become evil during the movie.
  • So, technically, she's not really the big bad even though she's a big comic book villain for Wonder Woman.
  • But think about it this way -- Wonder Woman wearing her hardcore comic book battle armour, fighting Pedro Pascal who has crazy god-level power.
  • if you've ever seen the Game of Thrones episode where Oberyn Martell fights the Mountain,
  • you understand why it would be cool to see them do a version of that during Wonder Woman 1984.
  • Have they told you who I am?
  • Some dead man!
  • But because we've already seen her future in the Justice League movie, we know that the special armour upgrade is only temporary.
  • So, I'm sure if it doesn't get obliterated at the end of this movie,
  • then in present day it's probably just hanging in a closet somewhere waiting for her to yank it back out again.
  • Because I think the idea is that eventually we will get to present day with the Wonder Woman movies if they do a third one, maybe a fourth one,
  • who knows what's going to happen with Wonder Woman after that?
  • The really big news, though, that everyone's talking about, next big thing, is that DC is not doing a big Comic-Con Hall H panel.
  • That's right -- they're not taking any of the DC movies to Comic-Con this summer.
  • I'm sure there are a lot of lesser reasons for that, but the main reason is that Wonder Woman's marketing campaign doesn't start 'til December
  • and that's when they start dropping trailers and clips. So, we'll be getting footage for it before the end of the year
  • but because the movie's not coming out 'til next summer, they just want to wait a little bit later to actually start dropping footage.
  • Yes, I know they just officially announced Robert Pattinson was cast as the Batman for Matt Reeves' Batman trilogy
  • but they're not even going to start shooting that 'til either way later this year or early next year, so there's not really anything to show for that.
  • Maybe they'll show some concept art eventually, but I think they're trying to hold that pretty close to the vest so that people don't judge it too quickly.
  • Birds of Prey is the other DC movie coming out but it's coming out before that at the beginning of February next year.
  • So, they're going to start their campaign even sooner. But the reason they're probably not bringing footage for that is because they're not done editing it yet.
  • They probably just don't have something that looks shiny enough that they're happy to show to everyone.
  • But we'll get footage for that before we get footage for Wonder Woman 1984 later this year.
  • There's a lot of really big stuff happening this fall -- a lot of stuff starting. We have The Watchmen HBO TV show.
  • We have the Disney Plus streaming service with the Star Wars Mandalorian TV show.
  • Talking about Pedro Pascal in Wonder Woman 1984, he's also playing the Mandalorian in The Mandalorian Star Wars series.
  • The much bigger news that people were asking me about this morning, though, was them cancelling the Swamp Thing TV show right after the first episode aired.
  • That isn't a record or anything like that because they cancelled Jessica Jones before season 3 started and that hasn't even dropped yet.
  • But they did not waste any time. They shot 10 episodes. The reason why it got cancelled, though, has nothing to do with creative.
  • Everybody likes the way the show looks. It looks really cool. It's one of their first horror series that they've done in a long time.
  • The real reason it got cancelled is actually kind of crazy and it's more of a bureaucratic financial thing than a creative thing.
  • So, what happens is they film the show in North Carolina because they get a crazy big tax rebate.
  • And quick crash course on how they actually make movies and television shows is that in each state in the United States, or sometimes in foreign countries,
  • there will be a tax rebate, which is a giant pile of money that the state will basically give to a movie or a TV show that is shooting there in order to come shoot there
  • because when people shoot a TV show or they film a movie somewhere, it basically brings a bunch of jobs and a bunch of money and other things to that area.
  • So, the state of Georgia, for instance, gives a bunch of money to the Marvel people to shoot all their big Avengers movies there,
  • but the actual production itself brings extra money into the state,
  • so the state of Georgia winds up benefitting their local economy by giving a little bit of money to Marvel.
  • And when I say "a little bit of money," I'm talking tens and hundreds of millions of dollars sometimes.
  • It's the same thing for TV shows like Swamp Thing.
  • The problem with the Swamp Thing TV show that got it cancelled is that North Carolina promised to pay for half of the Swamp Thing TV show,
  • which is about 40 million dollars. So, imagine they're spending 80 million dollars on 13 episodes of TV.
  • That allows them to make a crazy high-quality TV show. So don't you feel a little bit sadder about it now?
  • But because North Carolina apparently made a clerical error when they made that deal with Warner Bros.,
  • they only wound up giving a little bit of that money to Warner Bros., so Warner Bros. ended up paying way more for the Swamp Thing TV show than they wanted to pay.
  • Which is why they're cancelling it. It's just too expensive and costs way more money than they want to spend by themselves.
  • Even if that sounds a little confusing, if you're wondering why, say, like the CW DC TV shows can continue to pull such shit TV ratings
  • but they keep making them every year. Like how can they make so many episodes if it costs so much money and they get really terrible ratings?
  • Why are they renewing Titans for season 2 on the DC Universe but not Swamp Thing?
  • It's all about where the money to actually make the TV shows comes from because they wouldn't be making these TV shows if they didn't make money on them.
  • CW gets almost a billion dollars out of their Netflix syndication deal.
  • So, it doesn't matter what kind of ratings the CW DC TV shows pull because they're already making a lot of syndication money on that stuff.
  • The problem with the DC Universe streaming service is that there is no such syndication deal. So, there's no back-end money coming in.
  • So, Warner Bros. is losing money on the service to pay for these high-quality TV shows
  • and the reason why Titans got renewed for season 2 last year is because Netflix bought the rights to syndicate it internationally.
  • So, Warner Bros. is getting most of its money for that show from Netflix,
  • whereas that's not the case with Swamp Thing.
  • It's always possible something could change but that's the same thing with all those DC Universe TV shows that they've started making now.
  • What's probably going to happen next year, though, is that they'll fold the DC Universe shows and all that service into the larger Warner Bros. streaming service
  • So, you get more content. They're going to bundle that with HBO's content. So, theoretically, when you pay for that, you'll get all the HBO stuff too,
  • including pretty much everything that Warner Bros. makes in terms of TV shows and movies.
  • That's not going to launch 'til next year but don't be surprised if you hear a story about them folding the DC Universe streaming service into that,
  • but obviously it's going to be like a year away, so it's going to be a long time before we hear what's actually going to happen with everything.
  • Anytime something goes really weird with a production that seems like it's actually a pretty good project, it's all about the money.
  • Remember, it takes tens of millions of dollars to produce these TV shows. If it were a movie, it would be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
  • Hopefully that explains what's going on with everything.
  • Who knows if they're going to air the rest of the Swamp Thing episodes because they haven't even aired episode 2 yet.
  • That's supposed to drop tomorrow. I have seen the second episode and we do see the Swamp Thing monster for the first time,
  • so I recommend you check it out if you have the opportunity.
  • But I got a couple more big Marvel videos coming this weekend.
  • Leave all your video requests in the comments below.
