A Scooby-Doo Reboot Is On The Way

ScoobyDooReboot

According to Deadline, Warner Bros has hired Randall Green to write a Scooby-Doo reboot. This seems unrelated to that animated film that was announced almost a year ago, even though original producer Charles Roven is still attached to produce.  Unfortunately, those are the only details given at the moment.

While there’s a chance this and the animated movie are one and the same, that seems unlikely. The Deadline article specifically says that Warner Brothers is starting from scratch. And while the article doesn’t say one way or the other, it leads me to believe it will be live action, and I’m okay with that. Why? Because I think there’s a chance it can be done right this time around. CGI has come a long way since the 2002 film. I have never liked CGI Scooby in those movies. But they can easily pull him off now. There’s also the question of who they’re making this for. Are they going for the younger crowd, or are they going a little bit darker? I would prefer a more darker tone{ala Zombie Island} mainly because I don’t want to see another Scooby-Doo movie that’s all fart jokes again, but that’s just me.

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #4 Review

TeamUp4_front

Is Titans Tower haunted?! Could there be more to the thumps in the night than a series of “ghostly” pranks by Beast Boy and Cyborg? Robin has called in some experts to solve the mystery – if Scooby, Shaggy, Cyborg, and Beast Boy ever stop chowing down on pizza and start looking for clues, that is!

TeamUp4_1

As a big fan of DC Comics, Teen Titans is something that has never appealed to me. I have never seen the animated series from the early 2000′s, nor have I watched Teen Titans GO!, which this issue is apparently based on. So this issue was about on par with what I was expecting. I didn’t hate it. There were some good moments sprinkled throughout, but I felt it dragged in places. The first half of the issue sees Mystery Inc being called upon to stop some ghouls who are haunting Titan Tower. It’s later revealed to be Cyborg and Beast Boy pulling a prank. Then we have Raven’s “irritating” uncle Myron show up, This is where I started losing interest. The only thing that saved the second half for me was the reveal that Myron is revealed just to be another real estate agent{from the Underworld!}, As much as I didn’t like this latter half, I am glad they didn’t drag the Beast Boy and Cyborg plot out for the entire issue, especially  since this is the worst version of Cyborg I have seen{more the fault of Teen Titans than this issue of course}.

Scooby-Doo Team-Up #3 Review #2

teamup3

A magical imp is causing havoc in Gotham City, and the Dynamic Duo is looking for help from Scooby and the gang! But when Scooby gets his own “greatest fan” from the Fifth Dimension, can even Batman, Robin, and Mystery Inc. outwit two unpredictable imps to deal with the spooky, magical hijinks of…Scooby-Mite?!

teamup_review_2

Okay, this issue may have jumped the shark just a little…

I don’t completely hate Bat-Mite{even if he is the Scrappy-Doo of the Batman universe}. But Scooby-Mite? That might be taking thing a little too far. If I thought the idea of WWE City was ridiculous, the idea of “Scooby’s Biggest Fan” is even more so.  Admittedly I didn’t hate this issue but it definitely goes downhill when Scooby-Mite shows up. A lot of the time is spent with Bat-Mite and Scooby-Mite arguing over which hero is better, which while it leads to some nice moments, it’s not that interesting.

SpiderScooby’s Thoughts On Wrestlemania Mystery

wwe_1

So even though Scooby-Doom already reviewed Wrestlemania Mystery for the site{cause he’s much more of a wrestling fan than I am}, I finally got the chance to see the movie and I wanted to post my quick thoughts on it. This won’t be a full review because I’ve only been able to see it once, and frankly my memory’s not that good. So here goes.

I was really surprised how much I enjoyed Wrestlemania Mystery considering I’m not a fan of wrestling or WWE. When this movie was first announced, it sounded like just a quick cash grab. Is it? Maybe. Is it completely ridiculous? Absolutely{I mean c’mon, WWE City? Really?}. But that doesn;t detract from it at all. The WWE stuff didn’t annoy me at all like I thought it would. In fact, it makes for some of the funniest moments in the movie. I also liked how they were able to tie the Ghost Bear to some of the WWE superstars.

When Might We See The Theatrical Scooby Movie?

sd_movie_poster_001

 Via Variety

 Last year, Warner Bros announced they were bringing Scooby back to the big screen as a animated feature film. Now they have set two animated features for February 10, 2017 and February 9, 2018. Could one of these be Scooby-Doo? It makes some sense, since animation takes awhile. These dates are also a year or two shy of Scooby’s 50th anniversary. If one of these dates is indeed Scooby, this confirms the film will be released in 3D,

Update; WB just announced a new Flintstones movie. Will we be seeing back to back Flintstones and Scooby movies?
