I don't know how to describe this properly and I don't know who to talk to about my excitement for this movie.
I have grown up being highly interested in comics and especially DC Comics, however I didn't know where to start.
When New52 started, it was a good way for me to begin!
Around this time, I was genuinely unhappy with life in general due to many reasons. Comics became my escape.
Starting with the stories of Aquaman, I then went onto Batman, Superman, The Flash, etc. They helped me escape from this world and enter the amazing world of DC.
Since then, I have read tonnes of pre-New52, learning everything I can about the heroes I love.
I also met my partner during this time as well. She was dealing with worse stuff than myself, so I let her borrow my comics and bought her copies of Batwoman and Wonder Woman. She has the same reactions I did. We still talk about new things we learn about the DC Universe and still read many of these titles (she absolutely LOVES Batwoman and Harley!)
It was then that we went to watch Man of Steel in the cinemas.
We still remember this fondly. We held hands and did not say a word until the end of the movie. Our eyes were lit up the entire time from enjoyment and excitement, our hands squeezed whenever we were pumped. After the movie, we were giddy! We talked for days about the movie, all the references and easter eggs and how excited we were to see if they would make a sequel.
You all should know the hype train that has been happening ever since they showed the Batman/Superman logo at Comic-Con 2013. All of the news and movie announcements for the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe we have been excited for.
Now we come to the title of this post. I cried from excitement dreaming about the upcoming movie. To see our favourite comic characters on the big screen will be an amazing moment for the both of us. Characters that have helped us through our issues and have been there during our entire life. To see these characters who we absolutely love and consider a big part of our lives. This movie will be the beginning for another amazing journey for us, the DC Cinematic Universe.
