Will AQUAMAN Help the DCEU Get Back on Track?

Will AQUAMAN Help the DCEU Get Back on Track?

Warner Bros. screened Aquaman footage this week at CinemaCon and fans were really digging it. My man! On today’s Nerdist News Talks Back we discussed if the movie will help right the DCEU ship, along with Hank Azaria saying he’s willing to step away from Apu on The Simpsons, and Nickelodeon bringing back Double Dare.

Dan Casey was in the host chair today, and he was joined by Nerdist News writer Joan Ford, video editor Adam Murray, and producer Jason Nguyen. They dove intoreactions to the Aquaman and Shazam footage shown in Las Vegas this week. Aquaman is being praised for its look and feel, with Jason Momoa also being credited for his portrayal. How does this have us feeling about the movie?

They also talked about Hank Azaria’s comments on Colbert that he wants to do the right thing when it comes to Apu on The Simpsons; he’s even willing to step away from playing the character. After the show itself totally botched this, was this the right move for Azaria? How much of the problem is on the series and the writers, and how much is on Azaria?

Finally, Nickelodeon announced it’s bringing back Double Dare with 40 new episodes this summer. Were we fans of the original and which version of the show was our favorite?

Nerdist News Talks Back airs live Monday through Thursday at 1PM PT on our YouTube and Alpha channels, then we wrap up the week with our hour-long Nerdist News What the Fridays at 1PM PT, only at Alpha. So always tune in live and dive into the waters of the internet’s best daily pop culture talk show by being a part of the conversation.
