Yeah, I saw it. It's good. It's a short.
Thanks for the reminder. I'll watch it again in the near future.
Just noticed that my copy is a little over an hour long. That's because there are also 3 additional shorts included.

What are the other shorts?...

I just finished watching Superman/Shazam vs Black Adam it is good, I really liked the final battle lol...I've been wanting to watch or read Black Adam content before I see the live action movie coming out soon because I do not know much about Black Adam...I haven't read any of his comics and have no idea of his back story, well until now since I just watched this animated short...Its a start...:)

I watched Batman Hush (2019) for a second time last night, I liked it more this time round, Superman under Ivy's spell is cool lol...I also like the voice actor for Batman in this movie, his name is Jason O'Mara, I think his voice is one of the best for Batman...However, I did not like Jason Spisak as the Joker, he was okay with the laugh but his dialog didn't sound right...

I'm going to start watching it tonight. Maybe even finish it. :Whistle: I had been dissuaded by negative reviews, Consider:
Despite having a positive reception by critics, the movie received polarizing reviews by public audiences and fans. After quick analysis, Batman: Hush became the second least favorite movie in the DCAMU, after Justice League: Throne of Atlantis.
As I never read the graphic novel. any deviation from it won't matter to me.

Alfred's voice matches how old he should be, but they could have made him look a little older.

Did you catch the The Day of the Triffids reference?

A Lex-Corp shipment routed to Poison Ivy was sent to an address at a "Triffid Building".

Just finished it. Quite good. Comics fans need to realize that video adaptations will never be just like the books.
My only minor dissatisfaction is that the animation is unremarkable. (I've gotten spoiled by The Batman TV series.)

I just started reading this comic story arc, getting to know the backstory of Black Adam before the live action movie begins at the end of this month...Black Adam seems to be an anti-hero of sorts, he's a bad guy but with limits and he's a good guy to a limit, it depends on the situation he's in...I read another story about him where he was a protector of a particular country, he killed every criminal and the country was at peace, the citizens thought positively of him, they called him their Protector...One time the Justice League of America were fighting some supervillians and a few of them accidentally crossed into the territory of the country Black Adam was protecting and in their fighting some of the citizens BA was protecting were in harm's way, and in an instant BA was there and beat the living hell out of every one of those super heroes and villians who crossed into his territory...After beating the hell out of them all he then told them if they ever crossed into his territory again he would kill them lol...He genuinely cares about the well being and safety of ordinary people, he has a good moral fiber and he has his own way of doing things...

You might not have known this, but James Garner did the voice of the ancient wizard Shazam. It was his very last performance as an actor in any capacity.. At the time, he was either 81 or 82 years old.

There's a recent animated Green Lantern movie I didn't know about. I'm set to watch it, but haven't done so yet. It's received some criticism, but some fans I respect say it's good.

Green Lantern: Beware My Power (2022) is centered on Jon Stewart, but includes several other superheroes and supervillains. Kinda Justice Leagueish.

Watching now. So far quite good. I never knew Stewart's origin story. I like that they don't spend forever on it.

Engaging plot and quality graphics.

I might finish tonight. But I do have a complaint.
Writers need to forget about the trope where the bad guys capture one of the heroes, or even a bystander, and successfully compel the good guys to drop their weapons. I mean, I wouldn't mind them attempting this, but then the heroes simply refuse to give in. And it's fine for comedy or satire. But playing it straight and having it succeed is totally ludicrous for obvious reasons.

Sad to say, but I've abandoned the movie. The plot goes down a road I don't want to travel. (Yes, I did peek at the plot in the middle of watching.) Even before that, I was irritated by various absurd plot holes. Rating 3/10.
Hal Jordan turns into a villain and both he and Sinestro are killed.
Oh well, on to my next Scooby-Doo selection.
