Superhero film premieres have a tendency to be large will get for cable networks hoping to catch the attention of the dwindling-but-persistent channel browsing target market. So nabbing the rights to a Surprise or DC comedian e-book premiere is worthy of a few fanfare. Which is why, on Wednesday, TNT introduced that it might have the dignity of airing the tv premiere of Surprise Studios’ Captain Surprise on Sunday, Jan. 10 at Eight p.m. ET.
However that wasn’t all: To drag out the stops for its large unique, the community introduced it might additionally program an enormous comedian e-book film marathon. Simply now not Surprise titles. As an alternative, all weekend lengthy within the lead as much as the premiere, TNT will air DC films like Justice League, Suicide Squad, Batman Starts, Surprise Girl, Batman v Superman: Break of day of Justice, and Guy of Metal.
Is that this essentially the most epic troll in tv historical past or an admission through WarnerMedia (proprietor of TNT) that the DC film universe must siphon off Surprise’s power to live to tell the tale? There’s no editorial readability in TNT’s announcement — that is simply what it’s doing, as a result of the ones are the flicks it’s were given, I assume. Both method, I gasped.
Now not most effective do DC and Surprise each have characters named Captain Surprise — and the tales at the back of each are interesting comics historical past — however the two now really feel connected in an much more diabolical company transfer, albeit person who, admittedly, does now not subject and that I might disregard by the point the premiere rolls round at the Jan. 10. However for this split-second, believe this comedian e-book film #fan in awe of the audacity to program a weekend of nonstop Justice League content material within the lead as much as a Surprise film that made just about $250 million greater than without equal throwdown promised through Batman v Superman. Rattling! What the hell!
