Movie Review: New DC Superhero Girls
Okay, while not a movie but a TV show, I had to post about this new take on superheroes that I just discovered. While I really liked the original one, pictured here:
The new, rebooted show is so much better!
Instead of being carbon copies of their origin stories, DC puts a bit of a twist on many of them. Supergirl is a bit of a rebel/troublemaker. The Green Lantern girl hates violence and only wants peaceful solutions. While Bumblebee struggles with faith in herself. Wonder Woman is overconfident, but lacks understanding the new world of mankind and surges forward with everything.
The show is refreshing with funny dialogue. Instead of the characters being too perfect, like the original show, in this one they each have their flaws.
My children love the new show – laughing at many of the parts – and said it’s Superhero Kids like me!
Here’s the official trailer if you wanted to check it too. Let me know what you think. The first episode premiered on March 8, 2019 on The Cartoon Network.
My rating 4.8 stars out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, and historical romance.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
