HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – The critics and many superhero fans have spoken: “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” is a flop.  So what’s next for DC Comics?

Well, now that Superman is dead, DC Comics will focus on Batman, and has announced the next film series featuring the masked superhero.  Simultaneously, Warner Bros. revealed that this next series will open this Christmas.

Ben Affleck will reprise his Batman role in the new film.

But what is Batman without the Joker?

So, in this next series, DC Comics and Warner Bros. have already signed up the man who will play the Joker — none other than Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Win or lose (in the November elections), Trump is committed to his first major acting career.

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – While worldwide debate rages over the fate of what was supposed to be this summer’s blockbuster movie, Batman Vs Superman, the two major comics companies, Marvel and DC Comics are battling it out for supremacy in the Philippines.

Leave it to Philippine politics to set the stage for the quest to be the home of the  better comics superhero.

DC Comics has recently released its newest superhero, Pacman, inspired by the legendary Filipino champion boxer Manny Pacquiao. Almost simultaneously, Marvel introduced its own new superhero, Pekeman (Fakeman), inspired by former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas.

Both Pacquiao and Roxas are candidates in this year’s Philippine elections: Pacquiao is running for a senate seat while Roxas is running for president.

Filipinos love superheroes so the candidates found it fitting to present themselves as such, promising to come to the rescue of an entire population besieged with government corruption, poverty and crime.

It remains to be seen as to which superhero wins the heart of Filipinos and which Comics company will reign supreme in the Philippines.

DC Comics Announces Sequel To Batman Vs Superman

imageHOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – The reviews are in! “Batman V Superman Is V Bad,” “Even Wonder Woman Can’t Save This Unholy Mess,” “This Movie Is A Crime Against Comic Book Fans.”

Of course these are reviews from film critics.  This latest DC Comics superhero movie hasn’t officially opened yet, so it remains to be seen how the moviegoers will judge what the producers hope would be a worldwide blockbuster.

But already, DC Comics is looking ahead, hoping to rise from what seems to be a sure flop this summer.  It has just announced a new, unprecedented sequel to “Batman vs. Superman.”

The sequel, again to be distributed by Warner Bros., will introduce a new superhero, Pacman. The sequel will be titled “Superman Vs. Pacman.”

The Adobo Chronicles learned that the Pacman character was inspired by no other than Filipino champion boxer Manny Pacquiao, a.k.a Pacman.

DC Comics, however declined to reveal what super power Pacman will have, only to say it is not just boxing.

Both DC Comics and Warner Bros. expect this sequel, to be released in 2017, to break all box-office records by previous superhero movies.

The casting director for the film is now in Manila, searching for the one Pinoy actor who will play Pacman.  Pacquiao is not being considered, especially after his comments about gay men and women, which have offended not just the LGBT community in the Philippines, but all of gay Hollywood.
